FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Common Core Math Problem of the Week”

by TeacherWriter
1st – 12th Grade

This PDF worksheet is designed to encourage deep thinking and explanation of math problems and concepts at all grade levels. You choose the problem to assign to your students and the standard to address. The students use the thinking bubble, to make a plan or draw a picture. They use the other rectangles to write the equation and solve it, show how they checked their work, and last of all to explain their work and their thinking. This helps students dive deep into the mathematical concept or working through problems with perseverance. It’s great to use for homework or group work. You can project it on the whiteboard to show the process of problem solving. You can also use it for assessments and performance tasks.

I hope you find this little free resource helpful to you in your class. Thanks for downloading this product. I appreciate you!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Finding Proof-Text Evidence-Inferencing (THE FREEBIE)/Reading Comp Practice/CCSS”

by The Zoo Librarian
2nd – 6th Grade

This product is designed to pick up where other color-coded text evidence activities leave off. As students get older, they are using more and more of their evidence in their writing. They are expected to provide longer written answers. Still, we have reluctant writers in our classrooms. We have times when we need to give our upper elementary students a reminder about the importance of providing text evidence as support for their statements. I have used this activity as bell work, homework, and this year, I have also sent it home as part of my students’ ELA summer work requirements. This particular packet is a freebie so that you can see just how helpful Prove It or Lose It activities will be in your classroom! This free packet contains two activities based on movies your students will know and love.

Please message with any questions. Don’t forget to leave feedback and earn your TPT credits…it’s like free money!

** During this time when we are out of school and engaging with our students online and in a distance learning capacity, you may distribute my products to you students using the internet (but not in a way so that they are available to EVERYONE on the internet) Ex: Google Classroom is fine!**

It’s 2022! Time sure flies. We have some great ideas for you in our January edition of Teacher Talk. So, hurry on over to see what these creative educators are doing this month.

************************************
I Dreaded My Third Period Class
It was cold and blustery outside, one of those days you just wanted to stay under the covers, but truth be told, I immediately thought about how I dreaded my third period class, I so wanted to turn over and forget about it for a while. I knew I had to face it, so I begrudgingly got out of bed. Alas, it was only hump day, and I had a busy schedule, so I dragged myself out of bed, had my cup of coffee and a piece of toast.

New Year, New Focus
 


First week back after winter break. . . what a week! With our classroom numbers fluctuating due to students quarantining or testing positive, and so much uncertainty, diving right into the curriculum was not an option. We went back to the basics: what do we need to improve in?

 
************************************
Under The Blotter: Engagement Questions
Need a way to encourage independent reading? I have kept these particular reading engagement questions under my desk blotter for many, many years—so many that I don’t even know who did the research for them, but I do know these questions are effective in improving reading motivation, in the person who responds, AND in those who listen to the answers.
 
************************************
 
The Beauty of Math Patterns

Some people say mathematics is the science of patterns which I think is a pretty accurate description. Not only do patterns take on many forms, but they occur in every part of mathematics. But then again patterns occur in other disciplines as well. They can be sequential, spatial, temporal, and even linguistic. Discover more about pattern in this blog post.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Quick Easy Writing Template FREEBIE!!!”

by Beautiful Mathematics
2nd – 5th Grade

This effective take-home writing template is simply structured with a line for both the title and the author followed by space for a drawing or diagram and lines for the actual body of writing. It works for pretty much any type of writing (creative, narrative, etc.) and any topic (even math and science!). Bonus points for creative math writing. 🙂

For differentiation, if students cannot completely write their ideas in words, the teacher can assist with the writing while the student focuses on the sketch. Alternatively, students may attempt to write out what they intend to do and the teacher will make the necessary corrections. It’s really up to you! Make it work for your class.

I hope you find this writing template useful. Enjoy!

An Amazing Holiday Values Lesson

I woke up this morning, December 19, 2021, and thought about how much things have changed since the pandemic. 

*********************************************
A Celebration of Values for the Holidays

Ideas for bringing reflections and values to the celebrations of the season!

*********************************************
 
The Best Gift of All: Connection

One of the biggest challenges I’ve noticed since being back in school in person is the need for conversational skills. In class during morning meeting, we spend time devoted to talking and interacting with one another. While I can foster this in the classroom, I know practicing communication skills need to continue at home.

*********************************************
Giving Books as Gifts
Books make great gifts for everyone, but here are two keys for giving books that children, especially, will enjoy and that will motivate them to read even more.

*********************************************

Measuring Snow – A Craft for the Un-Crafty
 
I am not a very crafty person; so, I am always looking for items that are easy to make that I can give to my grandchildren. One year, I gave them a snowman making kit that included buttons, a carrot, six rocks and two sticks. This year, I am giving them a Snow Measuring Tool. Not is it only fun to use, but it also helps them to practice using a ruler. Learn how you can make one!

The Benefits of Literature Circles in the Classroom

Attitude of Gratitude
Attitude of Gratitude: Things I'm Thankful For

 

I woke up in a funk the other morning so I pulled the covers over my head trying to go back to sleep.  As I began to doze, my dog stuck her head under the sheet and I felt her cold nose on my leg. I knew that trying to stay in bed was futile, so I threw on some clothes and took her outside feeling frustrated and annoyed. As we began walking, the pain in my knee and heel started to subside and the phrase, attitude of gratitude came into my head as I realized how lucky I am to be able to walk, others aren’t so fortunate. 
********************************************
 
Multiple Ways to Multiply
When we spend enough time early in the year on place value and number sense, teaching multiplication and division go much more smoothly. Students grasp the concept of multiplication in multiple ways, so I try to introduce more than “the only way” to solve.
