Pupils start where indicated, make a note of the letter in the middle of the row (cross it out to keep track) and then work out the answer to the question below. They then find this answer on the top row and again make a note of the letter underneath, thus collecting the punchline ‘because they have sine and cosine to get a tan’.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Flower Clipart FREEBIE”

by CrunchyMom

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

Who wants another spring clipart FREEBIE?! Great for adding a punch of color to covers, or to embellish your spring, Easter, or Earth day resources, these doodle flower illustrations are just the thing 🙂 There are 5 different images, each in 3 different color variations. White-filled blacklines are also included.

All pieces are high resolution 300 dpi PNG images on transparent backgrounds and can easily be layered into your projects and lesson materials.

What Are Doodle Clips? Doodle Clips are images created from sketching traditionally (on paper), inking (blackline), then coloring either traditionally (with markers, pencils, or paint) or digitally. They tend to have a much more organic feel, and AREN’T composed of perfectly straight lines. There is beauty in imperfection, which is what I love most about Doodle Clips!

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 LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “RIP Said (Said is Dead) Synonyms Booklet”

by Cinnamon’s Classroom

2nd – 10th Grade

Need an engaging way to get your students to replace the overused word ‘said’ (often referred to as a tired/boring/dead word).
This free sample of my Boring Words Interactive Notebook and Synonym Booklets Bundle is a FUN way to get students to expand their vocabulary and improve their writing.

This free sample includes:
♦ foldable booklet with numerous synonyms for said
♦ “RIP SAID” tombstone
♦ Instructions on how to create a 3D tombstone
♦ Instructions on how to create a mini foldable book
♦ The synonyms within the book are grouped together based on meaning; and the words are illustrated to show this.
♦ The splash of color in each image helps students zero in on the part of the picture that highlights context.
♦ The illustrations not only serve to show students the meaning of a word, they serve to entertain and engage learners as well.

The paid version of this resource includes:
♦ 700 descriptive words
♦ a “RIP Dead Words” bulletin board decor pack
♦ 20+ mini picture thesauruses that come in 3 print options (foldables, small cards, large cards)
♦ an interactive notebook!

Take a closer look at the complete set HERE

The story behind picture thesauruses

I created my picture thesauruses as a way to solve a problem I was having in my classroom. I wanted my students to be more descriptive in their writing, but the traditional resource used for finding better words – a thesaurus – was just not working! Students would arbitrarily select a word from the long list provided, and often, the word selected was used incorrectly (ie. not in the right context).

I began to wonder… how could I show my class that each word in a thesaurus has a slightly different meaning? If only there were visuals to help students SEE the subtle differences between synonyms, I thought.

So I began working on solving these problems… and presto, my mini “picture thesauruses” (yep, that’s a term I made up) were born. Kid friendly! Fun! Interactive! Engaging! Easy to use!!!

How the books are organized and why:

My bundle of mini books (in the complete set) is based on THE 5 SENSES + EMOTIONS because I find that when students describe the look, smell, taste, sound or feel of an object, it just catapults their writing to a whole new level. Using precise vocabulary to describe emotions helps students add some ‘voice’ to their writing!If you want your students to expand their vocabulary, you can download the complete set HERE.

Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

Product 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 in 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.

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!

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.

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 SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Black History Month Digital Catalog for Middle School and High School”

by James Whitaker

4th – 12th Grade

Black History Month Digital Catalog for Middle School and High School (Grades 7-12)

**This Resource does not contain Freebies; instead it is a Catalog of Dynamic Black History Month Resources from Exemplary TpT Teacher Authors. Browse through some fantastic products conveniently collected in one place! Thank you.**

Black History Month is a time to celebrate the struggles, sacrifices, triumphs and continuing accomplishments of African Americans. Black History is profound and rich and should go beyond the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In an effort to support educators who desire to take their Black History Month Studies beyond MLK, teacher authors from all across the country have put together this digital sampler.

The Black History Month sampler is full of resource links to units of study designed to expose students to a wealth of other influential African Americans. It is our hope these resources will pique students’ interests and lead them on a path of self-reflection where they can pursue independent research and a broader spectrum of such an important subject.
