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.

Adding sound effects to group or individual Halloween readings incorporates pleasure into reading aloud, often a difficult task for beginning and struggling readers.

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Comparing the Protests in Hong Kong to the American Revolution!”

by MsMcMillan

8th – 12th Grade

Compare the current news of the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong to the American Revolution! Your students can make connections between the causes, methods, and messages of these movements.

This activity prompts students to read two articles to learn more about the protests in Hong Kong. Then, students will complete a chart summarizing the two different movements: the American Revolution and the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. 

Next, students will be asked to complete a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the movements. 

Lastly, students will be asked to create tweets supporting/condemning the Hong Kong protests while making connections to the American Revolution.

Use this relevant, timely resource to have students think deeply about the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong in the 2000s and the pro-democracy movement in America in the 1770s.

Let me know how this resource works for your students!

A game of BINGO rounds out this lesson by reviewing new concepts and vocabulary words in an enjoyable way. Great for substitute teachers, homeschool, and co-ops.

In the early part of the 1800s, land west of the Mississippi River was complete wilderness. This land consisted of rivers, mountains, forests and prairies and was occupied by Native Americans and wild animals.

  • The Frontier, Frontiersmen and Pioneers
  • Davy Crockett – Early Life
  • Davy Crockett: Congressman and Revolutionary
  • Texas Independence from Mexico

This is one lesson in a series of “Wild, Wild West Careers Lesson Plans.” Each of the Wild, Wild West Careers lesson plans covers the career and information about the time period as it relates to the career.

7th – 12th Grade

This is a jigsaw project over Peter the Great. I split my classes up into several groups and had them answer two questions a piece.

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Black History Month Digital Catalog for Middle School and High School”

by James Whitaker

4th – 12th Grade

Black History Month Digital Catalog for Middle School and High School (Grades 7-12)

**This Resource does not contain Freebies; instead it is a Catalog of Dynamic Black History Month Resources from Exemplary TpT Teacher Authors. Browse through some fantastic products conveniently collected in one place! Thank you.**

Black History Month is a time to celebrate the struggles, sacrifices, triumphs and continuing accomplishments of African Americans. Black History is profound and rich and should go beyond the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In an effort to support educators who desire to take their Black History Month Studies beyond MLK, teacher authors from all across the country have put together this digital sampler.

The Black History Month sampler is full of resource links to units of study designed to expose students to a wealth of other influential African Americans. It is our hope these resources will pique students’ interests and lead them on a path of self-reflection where they can pursue independent research and a broader spectrum of such an important subject.

Please check out the links for the other Digital Sampler Books

Sentences – Grammar Circles for easy and effective grammar

Product Description

Teach grammar in a creative and meaningful way. No more boring grammar. grammar

Simplify your life and make grammar fun and effective.

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit in grammar with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, directions, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (16 pages)

Activities included focus on:

-the logistics of the sentence (the basic parts)

-the prepositional phrase

-the adjective phrase

-the adverb phrase

-the verbal phrase

-the appositive phrase

-the independent and subordinate clauses

-subjects and predicates

-fragments

-run-on sentences

-types of sentences

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to about sentences.

(27 pages total for this unit)
