Simple Steps to Create a Story Plan

By Charlene Tess of Charlene Tess

Forming a story plan is the first step in writing fiction.

Rachel’s Monster

By Gini Musmanno of Reading Spotlight

The first time I saw Rachel she was standing in the hall near her first-grade classroom door. Her eyes met mine, but she then turned her face to the wall. I did not know at that time she would become one of my first primary grade remedial reading students, nor did I know that she was repeating first grade–this is a story about Rachel’s monster.

“BOO” to Fractions? Recognizing Equivalent Fractions

By Vicky Rauch of Scipi

Math requires constant practice – something most of my students dread doing. I can find many “drill and kill” activities, but they tend to do just that, drill those who don’t need it and kill those who already know how to do it. So to drill and “thrill”, I created fractional word puzzles. The one for October is Halloween Fraction Riddles.

Cursive vs. Keyboard – an interesting debate

By Renee Heiss of All-American Teacher Tools

There have been many debates over the centuries regarding the education of our children. From integrated schools to No Child Left Behind and Common Core curricula, teachers have had to deal with a plethora of revisions to their daily lessons. However, hidden beneath the mandated revisions is a new discussion that centers around cursive writing vs. keyboard entry for student assignments. How can you teach your little learners to master a keyboard?

A Peek Into Learning

By Kathie Yonemura of Tried and True Teaching Tools

For all the grumbling about distance learning (and there is a lot of grumbling!), there are also some perks! I have a love-hate relationship with classroom bulletin boards. They are such a pain to put up, then you have to change them frequently and other than during Open House, no one actually looks at them! Anyone else?

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

For my teacher friends who are torn about going back to school physically, or teaching using a hybrid model, these times are challenging.  If you are someone who HAS to go into your classroom, you are literally risking your life and possibly those around you. You probably stay up many nights tossing and turning over what you should do.  While those of you who teach through distance learning have to acquire new skills, and let’s face it, not all of us are tech savvy. It’s hard enough doing what you all love to do but Covid19 is making it difficult if not impossible for you. So how do you function when feeling emotionally drained and stressed out. In some of my other posts, I’ve mentioned Qigong as a way to relieve stress, there are also homeopathic remedies that may help.

Using Glyphs to Gather Information, Interpret Data and Follow Directions By Vicky Rauch of Scipi

A glyph is a non-standard way of graphing information to tell a story. It is a flexible data representation tool that uses symbols to represent different data. Glyphs are an innovative instrument that shows several pieces of data at once and necessitates a legend or a key to understand the glyph. They require problem solving, communication, and data organization.

Boo! Meow! Eek!Woo! Ha-Ha- Haaaa!

Reading poetry helps students improve fluency because the natural rhythm of most poems enhances ease of expression. Adding sound effects to group or individual Halloween readings incorporates pleasure into reading aloud, often a difficult task for beginning and struggling readers. Read this post to find out how to throw in even more levity.

## FREE MISC. LESSON – “Community Building Morning Message Halloween Edition {FREEBIE}”

by Cait’s Cool School

This week long set includes 5 questions that will help to build a strong community in your classroom. Questions are a combination of thought-provoking, motivational, seasonally relevant, and sometimes a little silly. They are perfect for morning meetings! Work well as morning messages, whiteboard questions, morning journals, or a writing center.

I use these questions daily and my students look forward to finding out the question each day and answering them! Start building your community the first week of school!

Each day of the week is themed- see the preview and thumbnails for the different options. This set includes a color version of each poster.

## FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Halloween Puzzle | Picture Word Search Puzzle FREEBIE”

by Real Cool English

Fun Halloween word search puzzle using pictures of things associated with Halloween to first build the word list, and then find the words in the puzzle. A hidden message is revealed after the puzzle is completed. This is a bit more challenging than the typical word search, and it gives an opportunity to focus on spelling and vocabulary rather than just looking for words in the puzzle from a given list.

This is particularly useful for ESL students as it is a good way to get students working together to build the list, learn vocabulary, and practice spelling.

★ For all 11 holiday and seasonal picture word search puzzle activities at 50% off, grab the bundle HERE!

## FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Full Text of “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” (printable with photos)”

by Write with a Point

Ambrose Bierce’s popular work, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” is a common and engaging text used in secondary English classes. Written just ten years before the turn of the century, Bierce’s story addresses themes of time and reality in interesting ways. Indeed, his film has remained popular since its release because of how he tackles these themes–specifically in his twist ending. As far back as 1964, French film director Robert Enrico created an Academy Award winning short film based off this story (which, by the way, is also very popular among students).

This product includes:

1) The full text of Bierce’s short story in a reader friendly, printable edition

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

by Exceptional Kinders

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!
