FREE MISC. LESSON – “Itsy Bitsy Spider Growth Mindset Poster FREE”

by HappyEdugator

Kindergarten – 8th Grade

When the storms of life get you down or wash you down the water spout, you need to let the sun dry you out and climb up again! This growth mindset freebie was inspired by Hurricane Michael as I see family and friends recovering from disaster. We should all remember the lesson of the little nursery rhyme, “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.” This poster is an inspirational quote from the Itsy Bitsy Spider himself! You can also project this on your whiteboard (for an inspirational morning message or writing prompt) instead of printing.

© Deborah Hayes aka HappyEdugator. For classroom and homeschool use. If you would like to share this freebie, please refer interested parties to this page.

Teaching Effective Note-Taking

By Kathie Yonemura of Tried and True Teaching Tools

Have you ever told your students to take notes and they either highlight almost everything (sometimes even changing colors with their fancy highlighters to make it look like a rainbow pattern) or they take bullet points on everything? Mine used to write pages of bullet points, with no organization or greater understanding of patterns, themes, or bigger ideas. In comes Note-taking Stations!

All You Need is Love & Kindness

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

Did you know that there is a Random Acts of Kindness Week? It runs from February 16 through the 23rd. Actually, this is the first I’ve heard of it, but what a groovy way for all of us to unite by being kind to each other. It begins with one simple act – one hello to a stranger, a simple smile, a pat on the back, a cup of coffee for someone you don’t know, or as my husband experienced, pay it forward.  This is a chance for participating individuals to make our world a better one and inspire others to follow suit.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Ocean Animals Short Reads (Free Sampler)”

by Growing Smart Readers

3rd – 4th Grade

Read about the Angler Fish, the Clownfish, and the Mimic Octopus! This resource includes informational paragraphs and follow-up questions for vocabulary and sentence writing.

This 3 page sampler contains short factual paragraphs; quick reads… so kids can glean the main facts and key ideas about each animal.

I created these for some of my students who get too stressed when they see long passages. Having less complex text makes it easier for them to read and feel successful.

Use them for independent work, center work, or as a supplement to a unit study on the ocean or ocean animals. These are especially great for summer school or after school mini lessons.

ELA Common Core Standards are listed for second and third grade level expectations.

Consider the priced version if your students were successful with this sampler.

The new complete set of Ocean Animals Short Reads is now at: Ocean Animals Short Reads (Informational Passages)

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Writing Process Clip Charts”

by Tessa Maguire

1st – 5th Grade

This clip chart is used to track students’ progress as they go through the writing process. Students change their clip after conferencing with an adult so that students can work at different paces. This helps with differentiation for writing.

There are three sets of clip charts and they can be used separately or mix and matched. There is black and white chevron, yellow and white chevron, and pink and lime green polka dots. These match my classroom decor sets.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE African American Heroes Questions”

by Ashleigh

3rd – 6th Grade

GREAT for Black History Month Paired Passages! This is perfect for improving students’ reading comprehension and written response to text-just in time for end of the year testing!

These reading passages make a perfect companion product! Black History Month Close Reading Passages

**************************************************************************
I am so excited to share these five sets of questions that can be used for African American historical figures and hero paired passages. For each person, there is one page of paired comprehension questions and one extended response question. The pairs of historical figures included are:
Jesse Owens & Ruby Bridges
Frederick Douglass & George Washington Carver
Martin Luther King & Thurgood Marshall
Harriet Tubman & Sojourner Truth
Mary McLeod Bethune & Rosa Parks

Students may conduct research to answer these questions via computers, apps, or nonfiction books. I also recommend my Black History Month Close Reading Passages for the information needed to answer the questions. All of the paired comprehension questions and extended response questions were written based on the content of the passages.

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “THE MEMORY COAT – Book Study and Teaching Inference FREE”

by Sweet Integrations

2nd – 4th Grade

The Memory Coat book study goes along with an blog post about teaching inference.

This heart-warming book is about families immigrating to America to escape persecution. A young boy lost his parents due to an epidemic and he ends up living with his relatives. His only reminder of his family is the coat his mother made for him. Grisha’s coat is tattered on the outside but beautiful on the inside. This story is about the family’s journey to American and going through the immigration process at Ellis Island.

In this FREE unit, activities include making inferences, vocabulary, and crafts with a coat and suitcase. This unit can go with cultural studies, historic fiction, and family heritage.

For more information about making inferences, take a look at my blog post Teaching Inference With Mentor Text
