by KTPonTPT
Kindergarten – 4th Grade

I use this activity with my class every year when we are learning about setting goals. I tie it in with new year’s resolutions.

After we finish our rough draft, we transfer it onto our final copy and draw a nice large self portrait! They make a super cute bulletin board display!

This has been a very sad and stressful time in our lives.*********************************************

The way I use this resource…
In writing, I scaffold and model information to my students. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I start with the basic rubric and introduce 1-3 new concepts each essay. Once I introduce a concept, I hold students accountable for the concepts I taught. If it appears that the majority of the class does not understand the concept, I do not hold them accountable and I reteach the concept. I try not to stifle their creativity by focusing on spelling, capitalization, and punctuation during the first two terms of school depending on the class. I also can easily use the 6 traits of writing with the rubrics. Make sure you choose a topic that is relevant, relatable, and the reasons are researchable.
Next, I introduce the peer editing checklist. I have students pair up and exchange papers. I have clipboards students can use while they sit around the room for this activity. It’s important for you to model for the students how to peer edit. Many times students just want to be nice and not give feedback. However, this is a great opportunity for students to read each others essays and learn from each other. I try not to let the same students peer edit with each other every time in order for students to view a variety of styles over the school year.
Finally, you are able to print front and back! Then you can cut them in half to save on paper. For example, pages 12 and 13 are the same rubric. Simply print it from your computer or printer as two-sided. If this does not work for you, print the first rubric for a full page rubric.
Happy Teaching!

Social Skills All Year

by Kathy Babineau

Grades KG – 5th

 

This kit contains 240 cards covering seasonal scenarios and topics. For each month of the year (including summer months), there are 4 Topic Talker cards, 4 Role Playing cards, 4 Facial Expression/Body Language cards, 4 Problem Solver cards, and 4 Perspective Taker cards, for a total of 20 cards for each month of the year. Cards are simply marked with the month of the year, but they can also be mixed and matched throughout the year if you would rather not focus on themes.

The Topic Talker Cards offer suggested topics of conversation, many of which are related to timely topics and holidays. Some other generic school based topics have been included in order to be sensitive to students who may not observe particular holidays. These topic talker cards are helpful for students who are trying to work to maintain on-topic exchanges with peers, addressing attention to conversation and even general expressive and receptive language.

The Role Playing cards also address many timely topics. When using the Role Playing cards, I like to have multiple teams role play the same scenes, because there may be several correct ways to “act out” the situation. It is also fun sometimes to role play the situation in an inappropriate way and then discuss why it may be hurtful or inappropriate or offensive. Be sure to brainstorm and discuss how body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice and word choice are all important to communication.

The Facial Expression/Body Language cards are fun to use to think about and practice ways that we communicate with our faces and our bodies.

The Problem Solver cards offer students opportunities to think about social situations, analyze the problem and generate practical solutions. There is not always just one correct answer to these problems.

The Perspective Taker cards encourage students to put themselves in a situation or in someone else’s shoes and decide how they might feel.

To use this kit, simply print out all sheets and then cut apart and laminate (optional) the cards, and you are good to go! They are all in black and white (except the cover page) to go easy on the color copying budget.

I hope you like this and find it helpful when working with your students!

MISC LESSON: “New Year’s Resolution Flip Book”

I love New Years!  It’s a great time to start fresh with new goals.  Am I successful?  Not always, but it is fun trying right?  And it’s the perfect time to do so (and easier to keep track of when you started it!).

Kids are the same way- at least  my kiddos in my classroom are.  They are already telling me predictions for Christmas and what 2016 will bring them.  That’s when I got the idea… Why not have the little ones create their own New Year’s Resolution too!

new years resolutions flip book new years day

I created this easy flip book for students to work through as they think out their goal (along with a graphic organizer to brainstorm on).  In it students will not only determine what their goal is, but also describe why it’s their goal and just how they will accomplish it!  I also can have them turn it into a written piece or reflect on how 2015 went so they can better determine how to reach their goals this year!  Plus, it’s just cute!

New Year's Resolution Flip Book Again

So are you thinking this would make a great morning work project on the first day back from winter break?  Or maybe you are thinking it’d make a great center activity or for early finishers.  Head on over to my TpT store to check it out!  I think your kiddos will definitely enjoy this cute little keepsake!
