Ambrose Bierce’s popular work, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” is a common and engaging text used in secondary English classes. Written just ten years before the turn of the century, Bierce’s story addresses themes of time and reality in interesting ways. Indeed, his film has remained popular since its release because of how he tackles these themes–specifically in his twist ending. As far back as 1964, French film director Robert Enrico created an Academy Award winning short film based off this story (which, by the way, is also very popular among students).
This product includes:
1) The full text of Bierce’s short story in a reader friendly, printable edition

This is a 2 player game. Each player takes a game board (a spider web). 1, 2, or 3 dice are needed for this game. For younger students, roll one die and place the correct number of spiders on their game board. Counters for counting my 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s are included. Older students can roll 2 or 3 die and add the numbers together to get the number of spiders they should take. When all of the spiders are gone, the students count the spiders on their game board. The player with the most spiders wins. Directions for a subtraction game are also included.
Common Core Standards: K.CC.1 Count to 100 by ones and tens. K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. K.CC.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects. K.CC.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g./ by using matching and counting strategies. (Include groups with up to 10 objects.) 1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. 1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction 1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.

Having a hard time finding assessments for measuring the volume of a liquid? I always pair this assessment with real, hands-on practice in the classroom. I’ve also used it to introduce this topic with the assessment first so the students know how to read the graduated cylinders before you give them one with water in it. There are 6 questions on this one page assessment and an answer document that goes with it. You can use them as exit tickets, homework, class practice, final assessments or in any other way you see fit.
Included in this package: ✸ 1 Volume Assessment Page (with graduated cylinders all in increments of 10) ✸ 1 Answer Key

This simple addition dice game helps students practice addition facts (sums of 2-12), comparing 2 numbers (more / less) and counting by 2 to add.
The game involves rolling 2 dice, recording the numbers, comparing the numbers and crossing out the number that is less, re-rolling the lower number, adding the final 2 numbers, comparing sums (awarding points for the sum that is higher) and finally, adding up the points by using counting by 2 to get the total.
Each player can use a full page recording sheet OR use the 1/2 size (2 sheets on one page).
This game is can be differentiated by using different dice (with larger numbers or dots vs. numbers).
I hope you enjoy the FREEBIE!
Update Jan. 2019. At the request of a TPT buyer, I have added a simplified recording sheet. Students just need to roll 2 dice and add the 2 numbers. 🙂

Nonsense Word Fluency. Help students improve CVC phonics skills by classifying words as either real or nonsense.
This is a great Nonsense Words Activity that may be played independently or with a partner. It’s a wonderfully simple game that is virtually prep free for the teacher, but it is also fun, easy and enhances both phonemic awareness and phonics skills. Even the most shy of students will get verbal with this game!
There are 10 mini word cards featuring Consonant Vowel Consonant Words. Students simply select a card from the top of the card pile, classify the word as either a nonsense or real word, then write it.
The fun comes in when the student holds up either a MONSTER or ROBOT to represent either a NONSENSE or REAL word.
This activity is ready-made. Simply duplicate, laminate a few pieces and get a few kids together and let the play begin! (Use popsicle sticks to attach to the monster/robot pictures to make them into little puppets…)
Hope your kids love this game:)
