The Chrysalids- Chapter 7 Review Game

Description

The Chrysalids Game for Chapter 7 is the perfect addition to any novel unit!  Students answer questions about important concepts and information from the novel in a labyrinth-themed game that is sure to engage even the most reluctant learner.  Trace your way through the labyrinth to help you find the correct answer.

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students become fully engaged with John Wyndham’s “The Chrysalids” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

This game is also available as a bundle to save you time and money. Check out the bundle and where games for every chapter in the novel are included. Click here.

The game includes 14 quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

  • Important vocabulary and terms
  • Symbolism
  • Irony
  • Foreshadow
  • Literary elements
  • Plot 
  • Characters
  • Quotes
  • Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work on their own. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, which facilitates discussions and class activities.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Homeschool Day Planner | for Pre-k, Elementary School, and Middle School”

by RoShamBo Homeschooling
Pre-Kindergarten – 8th Grade

This FREE printable homeschool day planner includes a cute template for selecting and organizing your daily activities! It makes mapping out your week super easy!

This checklist is so easy. On Sunday nights, I print out 5 of these, one for each day. As I’m thinking of what I want to do for the week, I just plug my ideas into the spaces. On the actual day, we just go through the list, checking off each activity as we go along!

There’s a reason I do 5 days at once. Search “gross motor activities for preschoolers” on Pinterest. Thousands of amazing ideas, right? It only takes 2 minutes to pick my 5 favorites and write them each on a separate checklist for the week. Up next? Fine motor activities for preschoolers. Easy.

Searching for activities the night before just isn’t as efficient. (Our time is so limited!) When I’ve tried it this way, I end up finding so many amazing activities I want to try and wasting way too much time trying to select the best one.

Features

Art Project OR Sensory Play

Let’s be realistic. Homeschool days go by SO fast. We never get through all the cool things we want to try. So this homeschool day planner is simplified to match what we can actually finish in a single day.

At first, I used to try to do an art project and a sensory play/science project on the same day… in addition to everything else. It never happened, and I just felt discouraged and overwhelmed. Both require so much setup and clean up! So my homeschool day planner recommends only choosing ONE of those activities per day. And you don’t need to choose wild messy art projects or super involved science projects every single day. I usually do one more complicated activity per week. The rest are pretty simple—painting with water outside, a sensory bin filled with different colors of dry beans, playing with slime, etc.

Practical Life Activity

With little kids, it’s important that they learn more than just academics, and explicitly naming on my schedule the practical skill I want to work on helps me remember to integrate it in a little each day. I usually do just ONE practical life skill for the week, and we work on it every day that week. In my sample, I listed “putting on shoes.” This could also be things like:

  • drinking out of an open cup without spilling
  • tying shoes
  • using a zipper
  • potty training
  • brushing own teeth
  • dialing 911, plus learning when to call and when not to (for older children)
  • learning home address and phone number
  • washing vegetables
  • set the table
  • fold a t-shirt
  • coughing and sneezing into elbow

Obviously many of these are things a kid won’t master in just one week, but having a goal to practice just one of them every day will help get your kiddo closer and closer!

Social & Emotional Learning Activity

It’s really important for kids to have “class” on social and emotional learning in order to develop emotional intelligence and become the most empathetic kids they can be. This focus in our homeschool day planner is just like the focus on a practical skill each day—having a goal and a written reminder helps keep you on track to teach beyond just academics!

For this “class,” we do things like:

  • learning emotion names
  • talking about how to appropriately react with each feeling
  • I Love You” Rituals
  • discussing how OTHERS feel and why (on a walk: “That puppy looks so happy sleeping in the sunshine. Look at that huge smile! Animals like it when it’s sunny. Remember when it was raining last week, and the puppy was all cold and soggy and trying to hide from the rain under the porch? Animals are really sad when it’s cold and rainy.”
  • activities on how to be a good friend, like sending care packages
  • practicing taking care of others
  • deep breathing exercises
  • reading books about social justice

Anything related to love (for ourselves and others!) is perfect in this category on your checklist.

How to Print

Want your pages to look just like the image above? Make sure you print out your pages borderless so they don’t have white margins.

Want to save some ink, but still have your planner look beautiful? If you print the pages WITH a white border (the default on most printers), you will still get some of the flower design, just less!

Please let me know if you have any questions prior to purchasing.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Freebie-Writing with Ease-Paragraph Every Two Weeks”

by English Oh My
6th – 9th Grade

The purpose of this product is to make your students into more proficient writers through practice and repetition.

This product was designed with the thought of backward design–What do we want these students to be able to accomplish at the end of this product? The answer: We want our students to be independent, strong, and proficient writers.

Each mini-unit begins with an engaging article, followed by weekly scaffolding activities. Week one consists of activities on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; while week two activities are assigned on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with a complete paragraph at the end of each unit. In addition, an easy rubric is included, that allows students to peer grade or the teacher can use it as an assessment, writing grade or benchmark.

I use the “TALES” response to teach my students how to write a short answer response. You will see this ditto a little later on; however, you can use whatever format works for you.

Every few units provide a new skill, that is added on to the prior unit. By the end of the 20 units, students will be writing independent, strong, and thorough paragraphs.

Description

The Chrysalids Game Bundle – A perfect addition to any novel unit!

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students become fully engaged with John Wyndham’s “The Chrysalids” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

Each game includes quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

  • Important vocabulary and terms
  • Symbolism
  • Irony
  • Foreshadow
  • Literary elements
  • Plot 
  • Characters
  • Quotes
  • Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

The breakout rooms include clues and answer keys for the teacher. The teacher can give students hints if they struggle in their quests.

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work independently. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.  

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, facilitating discussions and class activities.

The bundle includes 320 questions in total!

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

Description

Superhero themed Parts of speech Grammar Circle Unit

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit grammar in with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and Learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do other than to facilitate and supervise.

Once these circles have been implemented and students know who their group members are and what they are supposed to do, it is a great prep to leave a supply teacher.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (27 pages)

Activities included focus on:

❒nouns

❒adjectives

❒verbs

❒adverbs

❒prepositions

❒conjunctions

❒putting it all together

❒correct use of pronouns

❒who and whom

❒that and which

❒who’s and whose

❒that and who

❒pronoun case

❒pronoun agreement

❒active and passive voice

❒verb tenses (present, past, future)

❒verb uses (consistency in verb tenses)

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.

Also included are free Superhero Themed Parts of Speech Posters to decorate your class.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to learn parts of speech.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “English Learners and Specific Learning Disability CHECK LIST”

by Fun To Teach
Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

This is a freebie from a blog post I wrote on English Learners and Specific Learning Disability.

As ESL ELD teachers we are always worried about misidentification of English learners. Specific Learning Disability (SLD) is a language and literacy-related disability referring to a psychological processing disorder. If focuses on understanding or using spoken or written language. Determining whether an ELL’s learning difficulties are from language or something else is a tangled web.

As teams of educators ponder how to work best with English Learners they can reflect on a many different approaches. Here is a preliminary list of considerations I offer our staff.

I hope this offers some guidance for your school teams that work with English Learners.

Colon and Semicolon Breakout Room (Digital Activity)

Description

This breakout room activity requires access to the internet and uses Google Docs, Slides, and Forms.

Breakout rooms are a great way to reinforce learning grammar concepts. In my experience, students don’t love grammar and worksheets were not an effective means to teach them how to write better.

After several years of trying different things, I am excited to say that I have found the best solution yet. This mini breakout room allows students to reinforce grammar concepts while having fun. A student shouted, “This is so much fun!” while completing the activity.

What is different about this breakout room is its length. Many times, students get bored if the activity is too long, or if it is too challenging or complicated to complete. This mini breakout room focuses only on colons ad semicolons and will take students between 10 to 20 minutes depending on their skills and knowledge. (This is how long it took my grade 9 academic class.)

Please note that students must have prior knowledge of colons and semicolons before beginning the activity.

The instructions – Included are a set of instructions for students. Try this! With your stronger classes, instead of giving them instructions, students can try to uncover what they are supposed to do in each of the “rooms” on their own as an extra challenge. You can decide which method would best suit your group.

You can share a copy of the Student PDF with your class in Google Classroom or another digital medium, or you can only share the link in the instructions.

Please look for the entire line of grammar breakout rooms coming soon.
