FREE MATH LESSON – “Free Downloads St. Patrick’s Day Math Game! Early Finishers and Centers”

by Alferi

3rd – 5th Grade

Free Mouse’s Multiplication and Division Game

Theme: St. Patrick’s Day

Purpose: to review multiplication and division facts

Players move around the coins to the pot of gold finish. One player will have to be Mouse to check answers.

36 lucky shamrock cards with 2 facts on each card.

This game is both fun and engaging! Great for math centers and early finishers.

I also provided a task card recording sheet if you would like your students to review without using the game. 

The title of the game is Mouse’s St. Patrick’s Day Game. I chose this name in case you would like to change things up a bit. You could have your students use addition and subtraction flash cards. They could also make their own cards using more difficult problems , spelling words, or vocabulary words. Students can draw a shamrock on each card they make for the game to represent the lucky shamrock. The same directions can be used with a few minor changes. The game can be used for any type of review. 

I hope your students enjoy this freebie!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Lucky Unlucky ELA Card Game – Editable”

by KinderKay

Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

This game can be used for many concepts. Type sight words, CVC words, CVCe words, or concept words onto the editable card templates. To add a challenge to the game, create “Einstein cards. These are cards with a more difficult word or concept. When kids pick a LUCKY card, they get another turn. When kids pick an UNLUCKY card, they lose a turn. Cards are worth points. At the end of the game, students count their point. The student with the most points wins. This game can be used as a St. Patricks Day game, but can also be used year round. Because it is editable, words and concepts can be changed for differentiation and practice.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Gold Coins Missing Numbers 0-20 FREEBIE”

by Sherry Clements

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

Gold Coins Missing Numbers 0-20 FREEBIE —

This two page freebie gives students the opportunity to practice writing numbers 0-10 on one page and 11-20 on the second page. The first and last numbers on each page are included to get the students started. Numbers are written on gold coin shapes to give motivation for the skill. A number line is included at the top of both pages to aid students in writing the numbers correctly and in order.

These pages can be laminated or put in a page protector for a math center and have students fill in the correct numbers with a dry erase marker. Then wipe the sheets off, and they are ready for another student.

They can also be used as a race to the end activity. Make two copies of the chosen sheet 0-10 or 11-20. Have two students see who can correctly fill in the numbers first without writing them backwards and making sure they are written neatly so they can be read.

I hope your students have fun with this FREE number writing activity!

Please leave me some love/feedback–Thanks!

Other teachers who’ve tried my seasonal grammar worksheets shared these classroom success stories:
♥ “This was a fun activity for my SAT Prep class. The examples were great for high school – they weren’t too elementary for 10th and 11th graders. They enjoyed the examples and I liked that they weren’t too easy and weren’t too hard – great for review and discussion.”
♥ “These were so fun to use, and with so many options, I was able to use some with one level and some with another which helped since I have multiple kids taking both classes and I hate to have them do the same thing!”
♥ “Another excellent product from Team Faulkner. Great product. A true time saver.”

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!

 I can’t express enough that one of the worst things a teacher can do is to prejudge a class or a student before they even enter the room. Let’s face it, some kids get along better with some teachers than they do with others, so it’s better to listen but with a grain of salt and                                                                                           make your own judgment.
