FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “FREE Identifying Independent and Dependent Variables BOOM Cards”

by The Science Vault
6th – 8th Grade

Students will get great practice on the scientific method and experimental design skills with these 8 Boom Cards. Great for online, hybrid, or blended learning and integrates easily with Google Classroom, Schoology Powerschool, and Canvas. Interactive, easy to use, and no prep – PLUS students get immediate feedback on their answers!

Eight unique research questions ask students to identify either the independent or the dependent variable. Appropriate for any middle school class or even as a quick review for 9th graders. These Boom Cards are a great way to reinforce concepts quickly – students enjoy the interactivity and teachers can use them as a meaningful activity for some students while working in a small group with others. Great way to have a break-out room with a smaller group of students while knowing that the rest of your students are guided through meaningful work with these cards. The immediate feedback is so helpful for students who are still a bit unsure of the concepts!

FULL SET AVAILABLE HERE: I have a full set of 24 cards if you like these and want more. You can find them here: Identifying Independent and Dependent Variables

ABOUT BOOM CARDS: To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with “Fast Pins,” (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always free and a great way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks. For additional assignment options, you’ll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of our premium account. Read here for details: http://bit.ly/BoomTrial.

USING BOOM CARDS IN YOUR LMS: You can use Boom Cards in Google Classroom™, Schoology, Canvas, Powerschool and more! CLICK HERE to find out how!

Whether you are just beginning at www.TeachersPayTeachers.com or a veteran seller, let the power of the group’s cross-promotion help you market your TpT products and take your TpT store to the next level…

 

 

There is only so much time in the day.  How much time do you spend creating TpT products versus marketing your TpT products?  The best part about The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative is that since all of our marketing strategies are in one place, the full strength of our social media sites will be utilized through cross-promotion.  The time you spend writing one blog post or one TpT lesson will continually be promoted for years to come in our TBOTEMC eBooks and Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests. 
 
Joining TBOTEMC is not only “getting the biggest bang for your buck”…but more importantly, “getting the biggest bang for the precious minutes you do spend on marketing”…

Members advertise a free product and a priced product in our free Back to School, Winter Holiday, Valentine’s Day, and End of the Year eBooks.  Members also include links to their TpT store, personal blog, Pinterest boards, Facebook page, and other social media sites to gain more followers.  The eBooks are promoted on on our blogs, Pinterest page, Facebook page, and Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests.  More importantly, all of the holiday and Teacher Talk eBooks are promoted again in each new eBook. Thus, the time you spent to create one product page for our eBook will help you gain more followers to your social media sites and bring more potential buyers to your TpT store for years to come. 
  
TBOTEMC always has our THREE $100 GIVEAWAYS of TpT Gift Certificates which are held during the TpT Sitewide Sales.  We also have other Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests like our $100 PayPal CA$H, Amazon gift certificates, and other giveaways throughout the year.  TBOTEMC members who join this promotion may ask contest participants to follow their TpT store, personal blog, Pinterest board, Facebook page or Instagram page; subscribe to their email list; or promote their free product or priced product at TpT.  Members are then given the link so that the Rafflecopter Contest is displayed on their personal blogs.  TBOTEMC provides the $100 prizes and participating members promote the giveaways.   
 
Take our THREE $100 GIVEAWAYS of TpT Gift Certificates and other prizes one step further and use it to build your personal email list.  Open a free Mail Chimp account.  Add a subscriber pop-up to your personal blog and entice potential buyers to subscribe to your email list so that they will be notified of the THREE $100 GIVEAWAYS of TpT Gift Certificates and other Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests.  You will then be able to tell potential buyers on your growing email list to go to your personal blog and try to win our latest Rafflecopter Contests during the TpT Sitewide Sales and throughout the year.

Our Weekly Social Media Team members collaborate at Pinterest on a weekly basis and our TpT Sitewide Sale and Holiday Social Media Team collaborate before the TpT Sitewide Sales and holidays.  TBOTEMC Tailwind Tribe members are able to use the magic of Pinterest on a daily basis.  I will repin your TpT product pins to my 85,000+ Pinterest followers in addition to all of the members of your marketing team working together to promote your lessons on their Pinterest boards.  

Members of TBOTEMC’s Teacher Talk write educational blog posts on their personal blogs, our TBOTE blogs, or our TBOTEMC WordPress blog.  The blog posts follow an 80% content/20% promotion guideline in which members write about a particular topic and at the end of the article describes how their TpT product may help potential buyers implement the ideas in their classroom.  Each month, members choose their best blog post and have it featured in our Teacher Talk blog post.  The title, link to the member’s personal blog, a graphic from the post, and a three sentence “teaser” description of the blog post are promoted on our five TBOTEMC blogs.  All of the blog links are also promoted on each members’ blogs, our Teacher Talk Pinterest board, and our TBOTEMC Facebook page.  At the end of the year, all of the Teacher Talk blog links, graphics, and teaser sentences are compiled in our “100+ Free Lessons & Teaching Ideas By Teacher Talk” eBook.  Our Teacher Talk eBooks are promoted again in all of our holiday eBooks, on Pinterest and Facebook, and in our Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests.  Thus, through the power of cross-promotion, your one blog post will be promoted again and again long after you have written the initial blog post. 

Join our Wednesday Weekly 5 Under $5 marketing team and have your TpT products which are priced under $5 promoted on our five blogs, Pinterest boards, and Facebook page.

Watch your Facebook Page come alive by joining the Facebook Promotional Team

The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s annual membership used to be sold at TeachersPayTeachers.com, but may no longer do so because it is more of a “marketing service and not an educational resource.”  Thus, you may now purchase the $50 annual membership above using your PayPal account or PayPal’s credit card service at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs.html.  The membership allows access to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s website for one year (for example: August 20, 2019 – August 19, 2020).
 
TBOTEMC members may use the PayPal button above to renew the TBOTEMC annual membership before the renewal payment is due in order to make sure they keep their same position on the TBOTE Blog Seniority List or to take advantage of a sale. Teachers Pay Teachers have sitewide sales throughout the year.  Even though the TBOTEMC annual membership may no longer be purchased at TpT, the annual membership price may be reduced to coincide with the TpT sitewide sale.  If the member decides to purchase a new membership before the renewal payment is due, the actual renewal day for that year will begin the new membership period and not the date of the membership presale.  For example, suppose the member’s first year’s membership in TBOTEMC was from August 20, 2019 – August 19, 2020.  Thus, the member’s renewal payment would be due on August 20, 2020.  However, the member wants to take advantage of a sale price on July 15, 2019.  The member may purchase the one year membership early on July 15, 2019, but to be fair, the member’s second year membership period will be from August 20, 2020 – August 19, 1021.   
 
Please read the Terms of Service at http://www.thebestofteacherentrepreneursmarketingcooperative.com/2014/01/the-best-of-teacher-entrepreneurs_10.html before you decide to join The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative. The Terms of Service describes the entire registration process and how to gain access to The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’s website.

“I joined The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative about a year and a half ago on a whim.  I loved TpT from the start, but I needed some connections…something beyond the forums.  I got the membership on sale that day thinking I would try it out and just see how things go.  I never looked back.  Membership in this group has helped me break free of my comfort zones and take my store to the next level.  The group members are supportive, and Vicky is always available for individual help and guidance.  I feel like I have my own TpT personal trainer!  Although my original purpose for joining this group was to learn some serious marketing strategies, it has turned out to be so much more.  I now collaborate with teachers from all over the country!  Some of us even met in person in Vegas and Orlando.  Not only have I improved my TpT marketing, but I have also made friends for life!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at monicam8084@gmail.com.  I can earn a referral credit if you join and mention my name (Monica) and store Fourth Grade Frenzy which is not required, but appreciated!”
-Monica

“Since joining, I can say that this group has really made the HUGE TpT community feel smaller and more reachable.  There is so much shared marketing knowledge, so many dedicated marketing groups that you can join, and Vicky has been such a great help with any and all questions I have had.  I love being my own boss, but sometimes I can lose track of how to spend my time.  The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative has helped me focus the time I spend marketing, and keep my marketing goals on track.
-Rebecca

“The best part of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative is the enthusiasm & innovative spirit of members, and the willingness to support each other.  I’ve connected with the most fabulous group of educators who are making me a better teacher and teacherpreneur! Vicky is amazing; she’s a bundle of energy and is always open to new ideas for growing our business.  I love that when a TBOTEMC member has a idea, she encourages them to run with it and to take the lead.  I can’t recommend this group enough!

-Monica
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fourth-Grade-Frenzy

“I have joined TBOTEMC with just 7 products in my store.  In just 3 months, I have had at least one or more sales every day!  In the first month I made $28.  In the second month I made $187. April has ended and my earnings were $376!  Joining TBOTEMC was the best decision I have made.  Contact me at teachingbiilfizzcend@gmail.com.”

“The group dynamic is really great, and super supportive. I have learned so much from group members and it has been fun to share my knowledge with them. Since joining, my store sales, social media followers, and blog followers have increased by over 10% every month. I am so glad I joined!”
-Mary
 
“The best part of joining TBOTEMC is to be able to collaborate with such a wonderful group of caring educators who are so willing to help each other.  I have been a member since the beginning of March and I’ve seen an increase in Pinterest, Facebook, and my TpT Store followers.  I have also learned a great deal about internet marketing.  Looking forward to the future and so happy that I joined this group.  The price is well worth it.”
-Deann Marin
“When I started selling on TpT in May of 2013, until I joined TBOTEMC this August, my total sales were $3,157.45. That’s for 15 months. I joined TBOTEMC August 5th of this year, just 3 months ago. In those 3 months I’ve sold $9,014.46!!!”
-Leah Popinski
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Leah-Popinski

 
“I started TpT in May of 2014 and decided to become a member of TBOTEMC on February 28, 2015. Prior to joining, I had never had a month in which I had at least one sale every day. However, in both March and April (today is only May 1st), I had at least one (and often multiple) sales every day! I am ecstatic – and this toward the end of the school year! I am so thankful for the advice, support, and community this group provides.” 
– Ashley
“TBOTEMC offers

Because of TBOTEMC, I reached my $20,000.00 milestone on TpT much sooner than I expected. I first joined TBOTE to gain exposure for my TpT products and my blog http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/ – which, I’m thrilled to say, definitely happened. The Social Media Partners concept is a win-win for TpT sellers and is a marketing treasure. Victoria Leon goes out of her way to help her members to increase their selling potential.”
~Connie 
 
“I am at the beginning of an amazing journey! I recently joined TBOTEMC, and I am amazed at the opportunities in front of me. This cooperative group works together to achieve everyone’s success. I have only begun to use the extensive amount of resources available to me and can already note increases in followers and sales. Vicky is amazing and will support you in every way. You took a huge step when you became a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers. Join TBOTEMC and jump to the next level!
-Monica
Fourth Grade Frenzy
 
“The best part about TBOTEMC is Vicky herself. She is SO knowledgeable, enthusiastic and goes out of her way to help members. She truly embodies the value of collaboration.Through TBOTEMC, I’ve had more exposure to my blog & TpT store. It’s amazing to see what other TpT members are creating, teaching, and pinning! My Pinterest followers have grown due to TBOTEMC!”
-Tried and True Teaching Tools
 
“I started selling at TpT in January of 2013 and, without much marketing, made steady progress and managed to reach the first milestone in October of 2014. After realizing the potential of this business, I decided that I MUST add marketing to my plan if I wanted to continue to rise in the marketplace to the next level. That is when I discovered Vicky’s product. With the guidance of this program, I have seen increases in all areas of my business and I have begun to enjoy the benefits of working with others for the common goal of increasing TpT awareness in the world marketplace. I highly recommend adding this to your own hard work and see where it can take you.”
-Kathryn Garcia @ Made For Learning
 
“Since joining The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, my sales have increased by 20%. I also think the collaborative boards are top notch in that only quality items are posted. As for other members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, they are outstanding educators from whom you can learn from no matter how long you have been teaching.”
-Vicky
Scipi on TPT
 
“I am just a beginner at TBOTEMC (as well as TPT), but am so excited already. MY NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS HAS ALREADY GROWN! I have found Vicky so very helpful, putting up with my many questions and helping me get started. Pinning from other members helps your exposure, and the interaction with other members teaches you so much. The enthusiasm of another member, Julie Jackson, along with Vicky, has made me want to spend every minute this summer improving my store and growing with this new adventure.” 
Thanks, 
Laurie Carpenter
 
“I am so grateful for encountering TBOTEMC – The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative! While others ignored my request to join their collaborative Pinterest boards or unfollowed me – Vicky Leon was so kind to take me under her wing and act as a mentor and befriend a stranger. I have been fortunate to be part of an organization that provides a cooperative of many teachers who support each other. I am so grateful for TBOTEMC!”
-TheBeezyTeacher
 
 
Dear Vicky,
 
I just wanted to share how TBOTEMC  is changing my life – I have attached my latest data. I did not post this to boast, only to show you the positive impact TBOTEMC is having on my success.  In the last eight months, I have made more than I make in a year teaching in the classroom.   I love teaching, but I love creating resources just as much! 
 
Feel free to use the data with others to help encourage others to join.
 
I am not sure thank you will ever be enough for how you and TpT have changed my life.  With you and TBOTEMC, I am doing things I only previous dreamed of doing.
 
I always loved creating educational resources, but I never dreamed I could have financial success as a teacher.  
 
Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU!

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Earth Day Report Card”

by Runde’s Room
3rd – 10th Grade

This Earth Day, give your students this report card and have them evaluate how “green” their school / classroom / home is.

There are three different report cards: one for the whole school, one for the classroom, and one for the home. You could either have all students complete both the school and classroom report card, or divide your class into two groups and have one group complete the school card, and one group complete the classroom card. Students could then compare the results to see how their classroom compares to the school. Home report cards could be taken home for students to complete with their parents.

FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Plant Cell and Animal Menu Board”

by Texas Science Gal

7th – 10th Grade

In this download you will find a menu similar to what you would find in a restaurant including items such as an appetizer, an entree, side dishes, and deserts. The way this is used, instead of food there are a variety of assignments that students can complete to show their mastery of their understanding of Plant Cells and Animal Cells. Some of the assignments include describing living things, describing the differences between cells, drawing and labeling cells, and creating flash cards.

So to use this, you will need to print out the pages included and students will need to have index cards to use for one of the assignments. The first assignment represents the appetizer (something that people share) because everyone completes it, it. Next the students can pick their entree (similar to ordering one meal), and they can pick just one of those listed assignments. Then with the entree comes two sides which students can then also pick which two of the three. For early finishers there is a desert that is entirely optional (great for extra credit!).

The reason why I made this was because I want students to feel like they have a choice in their assignments. I teach 7th grade and often times they just want the option of getting to choose their assignment. It is a great assignment for homework, amazing for centers (by having some students work on the entree or side dishes), and can also be used as class work.

I am in the process of updating my other menu boards as well to reflect this new and updated look and style, so be sure if you are in my store and want to see others, to click on menu/choice boards on the left hand side to see more.

Also, If you are not receiving updates from my store be sure to click on the green star when you are at my store. This will allow you to follow me and receive emails when I have a sale or post new products.

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.

Having a hard time finding assessments for measuring the volume of a liquid? I always pair this assessment with real, hands-on practice in the classroom. I’ve also used it to introduce this topic with the assessment first so the students know how to read the graduated cylinders before you give them one with water in it. There are 6 questions on this one page assessment and an answer document that goes with it. You can use them as exit tickets, homework, class practice, final assessments or in any other way you see fit.

Included in this package:
✸ 1 Volume Assessment Page (with graduated cylinders all in increments of 10)
✸ 1 Answer Key

DISCLAIMER
As a Texas teacher, the products I make are designed around the standards for the state of Texas, known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are carefully crafted to help students be successful on the Texas STAAR test. I use the challenge of the TEKS and released STAAR assessments as models to guide me when putting together lessons and materials for students. Thus, I am careful to post products that, in my judgment, address those standards. I am not affiliated in any way with these entities and any and all claims of alignment are my claims, not those of the groups behind the TEKS or STAAR test. Please contact me if you have questions.
