Homeopathy, What Is It?

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

In addition to teaching, for a good part of my life, I have also been interested in alternative medical practices that include: homeopathy and holistic medicine, as well as exercise, yoga, qigong, meditation, aroma therapy, reflexology, massage, acupuncture, acupressure, and more. Through personal experience, I have seen that these practices can have a beneficial impact on the health and well being of those who use them. I am convinced of their effects

Be-Leaf Me! Fall is Great! Using Leaves in Science Investigations

By Vicky Rauch of Scipi

When my husband’s Aunt Sue moved to Florida, she would send home some strange requests. One year, she wanted us to send her a box of fall leaves. Since Florida lacks deciduous trees, her students were unaware of the gorgeous colors produced by the trees up north. The only problem with her request was that the leaves we sent would be dry and crumbling by the time she received them. What to do? Find out in my newest blog post

FREE MATH LESSON – “Count the Spiders! A Halloween Math Game Freebie”

by Exceptional Kinders

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Count the Spiders! Math Game Freebie

This is a 2 player game. Each player takes a game board (a spider web). 1, 2, or 3 dice are needed for this game. For younger students, roll one die and place the correct number of spiders on their game board. Counters for counting my 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s are included.
Older students can roll 2 or 3 die and add the numbers together to get the number of spiders they should take. When all of the spiders are gone, the students count the spiders on their game board. The player with the most spiders wins. Directions for a subtraction game are also included.

Common Core Standards:
K.CC.1 Count to 100 by ones and tens.
K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
K.CC.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g./ by using matching and counting strategies. (Include groups with up to 10 objects.)
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.
1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction
1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.

Thank you for viewing my Count the Spiders! Math Game Freebie! I hope you enjoy it!
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Nonsense Word Fluency by Ms. Lendahand (Monster – Robot Theme)”

by Ms Lendahand of Lendahand’s Printables

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

Nonsense Word Fluency. Help students improve CVC phonics skills by classifying words as either real or nonsense.

This is a great Nonsense Words Activity that may be played independently or with a partner. It’s a wonderfully simple game that is virtually prep free for the teacher, but it is also fun, easy and enhances both phonemic awareness and phonics skills. Even the most shy of students will get verbal with this game!

There are 10 mini word cards featuring Consonant Vowel Consonant Words. Students simply select a card from the top of the card pile, classify the word as either a nonsense or real word, then write it.

The fun comes in when the student holds up either a MONSTER or ROBOT to represent either a NONSENSE or REAL word.

This activity is ready-made. Simply duplicate, laminate a few pieces and get a few kids together and let the play begin! (Use popsicle sticks to attach to the monster/robot pictures to make them into little puppets…)

Hope your kids love this game:)

 It’s the beginning of a new school year and boy have things changed. Some of you will be doing hybrid teaching, others will be in the classroom.

Five Assumptions about Distance Learning-Why it’s Not Working for Every Child!

By Vicki Rauch of Scipi

My husband and I have taught together for over 80 years. We continue to do so because we love what we do; however, we are very disturbed by the terms Virtual Learning or Distance Learning or On-Line Learning. Now don’t get the idea that because we are “old”, we don’t or can’t use technology. Technology is part of our lives, especially in our teaching, but when we hear Distance Learning, many people make assumptions that simply aren’t true.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “CVC Puzzles”

by Fashion Craze Learning Days

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Are you looking for a fun way to help your students decode and blend cvc words?

These puzzles are a great hands on activity that allows your students to build their own words.

• Includes 15 puzzles each with 3 pieces.

• All vowels and consonants are included

These puzzles look great when printed on colored card stock or colored paper!

Using colored paper helps your students to see the changes in the words visually too!

Simply print out all the pages (note: colored paper makes them really pop!) and then cut out all three parts of each puzzle.

Next, allow your students to mix and match while they practice decoding CVC words.

An engaging way to practicing blending sounds!

Add an extra dynamic by discussing whether the words are real words, or nonsense words!

Great for centers, stations, reading groups, tutoring and Intervention!
