Spelling Flip Book

Product Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flipbook when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Find the Error – Error Analysis Blank Template”

by Runde’s Room

1st – 8th Grade

This is a blank template I use often in my classroom during math activities, or as a kind of group exit slip or diagnostic to see if students can spot the error. This resource includes both the powerpoint version (so you can add textboxes over top of where you wish to add your information), or the PDF – which is what I use. I simply project the PDF onto the whiteboard and we use our whiteboard markers to write in the boxes. You can also print and use the blank PDF and use a center or a guided math activity.

I use this activity as reinforcement/review when I see an error commonly happening in the classroom. I can quickly pull up the template (which I have as a shortcut on my computer desktop) and write in the question and incorrect solution. I ask students to look at the incorrect solution, find and circle the error on the board, and then model the correct solution on the right hand side.

FREE MATH LESSON – “A, B, C’s of Number Tiles – Problem Solving Math Activities – FREE Version”

by Scipi – Science and Math

4th – 7th Grade

The construction and analysis of magic squares provides practice in mental arithmetic, operations with numbers, geometry, and measurement plus it encourages logical reasoning and creativity, all in a game-like setting. Furthermore, they are a powerful tool for teaching students basic addition skills since each row, column, and diagonal must add up to be the same sum.

The three letters of this 10 page free resource are solved in a similar way. Number tiles are arranged in such a manner that the sum of the tiles that form each straight line of the letter equal the same sum. The designated sum for the letter is written on each page as well as the number tiles to be used. Most of the three letter puzzles have more than one answer; so, students are challenged to find a variety of solutions.

The activities require that the students use each number tile only once. However, some of the activities will not require the use of all ten tiles; so, reading and following the directions before beginning each math-a-magical puzzle is important. Answer recording sheets are provided for the student as well as possible solutions for the teacher. A Number Tile Keeper in addition to a blackline of the number tiles is located at the end of this 10 page resource.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Finding Factors Freebie”

by Downeast Teach

3rd – 6th Grade

The Common Core for 4th Grade states that students should be able to “find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range of 1-100” … and “determine whether a given number in the range of 1-100 is prime or composite.”

This Finding Factors Freebie is what I use to teach my 4th graders how to find all the factors of “Today’s Number” which is a routine we do as part of my SMARTBoard Math Calendar. Today’s Number is always whatever day of school it is, and we make an organized factor list, starting with 1 and the number. My students become experts on prime and composite numbers, as well as the difference between factors and multiples, thanks to this daily repetition.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Think – Pair – Share Instructional Strategy”

by Create ‘n Time

1st – 12th Grade

“Think- Pair – Share” is a great strategy for differentiating learning and keeping students on task, resulting in more effective student learning. This strategy is also a very effective classroom management tool –it keeps students involved and provides opportunities for teachers to check for understanding. Think-Pair-Share has many benefits to student learning–builds in wait-time; provides rehearsal for responses; enhances depth and breadth of thinking; increases level of participation; keeps students on-task; provides processing time called for in 10:2 Theory. It’s great to use with all ages, including adults! Look for my Think-Pair-Share record sheet to reinforce students about what to do–available on Teachers Pay Teachers.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Critical Thinking Rubric for Writing & Projects – Suitable for All Subject Areas”

by Set Course with Mrs Rutters

6th – 9th Grade

Critical Thinking Rubric for Writing & Projects – Suitable for All Subject Areas

This product contains:
1. Full page Critical Thinking Rubric (original and embellished versions)
2. Lined generic response page with rubric
3. Open prompt page with rubric
4. “Critical Thinking: What Does Success Look Like?” display chart (original & embellished versions)

6 Usable Pages (+1 page – Suggestions for Use)

This rubric provides a clear explanation to students about how to create responses to show their critical thinking. The rubric is formatted generally so you can use it with a variety of prompts and projects. Students should be thinking critically in all subjects, but providing clear guidelines and assessing those standards can be incredibly difficult. This rubric is designed to provide a consistent set of expectations that can be referred to with any subject or with any project.

This rubric can be used in any subject area (Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, STEM, Humanities, Art, Music, Foreign Languages, Physical Education, etc.) for any activity where students are expected to create something to show their critical thinking and understanding (reports, essays, multimedia presentations, slideshows, videos, skits, speeches, brochures, advertisements, games, picture books, magazine articles, posters, etc.).

There is great flexibility in how you use the rubric to generate grades. It can be a useful formative assignment tool to provide feedback to students about how to improve their responses. It can be used with summative assessments to evaluate student understanding.

The categories for the rubric are:
* Does not meet minimum requirements (students are then required to redo the assignment with scaffolding or re-teaching as needed)
* Satisfactory
* Exceeds Expectations
* Advanced

Common Core Anchor Standards in Writing:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.1 – Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.2 – Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.

Lemonade 2020

By Gini Musmanno of Reading Spotlight

 This Coronavirus pandemic is extremely serious and stressful, but independent reading can be part of a useful solution to children learning at home. Now is a good time to hook kids on reading because they can choose their own books according to their own interests. At the same time, they can practice previously taught reading skills and improve in many ways.
