Spelling Flip Book

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 MISC. LESSON – “FREE Poetry Lesson, Father’s Day Card Materials for Older Students/Teens”

by Laura Randazzo
8th – 12th Grade

Remember the Father’s Day cards we made back in elementary school? Let’s revisit that tradition for our middle- and high-school students with these print-and-go materials that’ll make a bunch of dads (and father figures) feel appreciated on their special day.

Included:

• A student handout featuring eight slices of poetry about fathers/masculine power.

• Six coloring pages that fold in half to become cards (Print on white paper, colored paper, or cardstock – grab whatever’s available in the copier room and go!)

Suggested lesson procedure:

1. Begin by handing out the page that includes eight bits of poetry, giving students a few minutes to read them all.

2. Have students choose the poem that reminds them most of their father/closest paternal figure.

3. Give students a choice of card designs.

4. Inside the card, have them write a loving note to the recipient and include the lines of poetry in their best handwriting.

5. With any remaining time in class, have students color the front of the card with colored pencils or sharp-tipped markers. The coloring portion can be completed in class if time allows or sent home for students to complete on their own time.

Tip: When printing the cards, choose “Print Full Size” on your printer settings. If you choose “Scale to Fit” (the default on many printers), your cards may have unevenly spaced borders.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Distance Learning: Google Classroom™ Missing Work Slides”

by Love Learning
Kindergarten – 12th Grade

Distance learning has definitely taught me a lot about teaching online! One of the challenges that I have encountered has been keeping up with missing, late work, or revisions.

I created these Google Slides to help my students and I keep track of their weekly assignments.

  • The first slide is a daily “check-in” slide for students.
  • The second slide is for the end of the week and requires students to go back through all of the assignments from the week and enter their grade.

English Grammar Cheat Sheet

Description

This “Cheat Sheet” was designed to help students while writing in English. This at a glance 2 page sheet is colorful and has an easy to find layout to help students remember certain important things while they write.

I allow my students to use this in class when writing a test. This is not a grammar lesson, but it will remind students about the grammar they’ve learned in the past.

Some of the reminders included:

❒ parts of speech

❒ transitional words

❒ quotation marks (how and when to use them)

❒ basic sentence structure

❒ spelling tips (plurals of nouns and IE rule)

❒ punctuation rules (apostrophe, colon, semicolon)

The other side of the page has comma rules:

❒ with coordinate conjunctions

❒ with introductory elements

❒ with other elements (dates, parenthetical expression, nouns in a direct address)

❒ with adjectives

❒ with appositives

It also contains tips on things to avoid, such as writing a paragraph shorter than 4 sentences. And, it contains a list of things to do, such as make sure that your paragraphs contain at least 2 pieces of evidence.

5th – 9th Grade

It’s been a year! What have your students learned about themselves during this past year? It’s important to let our students reflect and consider what they’ve been through, what they’ve lost, and what they’ve gained through this difficult, weird year.

This print and digital freebie includes a short, reflective questionnaire along with a writing prompt, and rubric.

Your students can use the questions to formulate a short reflective essay.

Extend their reflections into a memoir. What a great way for them to document their experiences this year.

Use it as a warm up, bell ringer, fast finisher activity, journal activity, or reflection journal prompt.

Perfect way to open up conversation and let your students think about how they’ve grown and matured through the pandemic.

Help your students connect with and make sense of this past year.

I love hearing from you! Please leave feedback!! Even for a freebie! It helps me know what you’d like to see more of!
