Thematic Poetry Unit (Digital copy included)

Description

***Please note that other than the evaluation and game, the documents are non- editable in a PDF document. An editable version can also be purchased using this link: ***EDITABLE Thematic Poetry Unit

***A digital copy of the student activities in Google Slides is included as well for distance learning.***

The comprehensive poetry unit that teachers, as well as students, can enjoy. I want to demystify poetry, and I make it my goal for students to enjoy the reading and studying of poetry.

At the beginning of every poetry unit, I ask my students this question, “How do you feel about poetry?” My heart always sinks when most admit to disliking it. I make students this promise, and now I am making you this promise, with this unit, I might not convert you into a poetry lover, but I promise that you won’t hate it. (We need realistic expectations.) This unit includes a variety of poetry genres and activities to help students understand that poetry is not about finding the correct answer but appreciating someone else’s point of view on a subject (even if students don’t quite understand or like it). In short, this unit teaches students how to approach, think, and write about poetry. Each lesson focuses on an element of poetry that will further students’ ability to analyze, to read between the lines, and to become independent learners.

The unit includes:

❒Student worksheets and poems

❒15 complete lessons (with an introduction, transitions and activities, and conclusion). The lessons also include the learning goals for students.

❒A comprehensive answer key for all worksheets, annotations to all poems, examples of paragraphs for students.

❒A final unit test (PPT – editable) with the answer key. Includes student success criteria and an evaluation grid. The poem on the test is Paul Laurence Dunbar’s “We Wear the Masks.” For copyright purposes, the poem cannot be published on the test. However, I have left room on the editable test for the teacher to insert a copy of the poem.

A comment sheet for easy and meaningful retroaction on students’ test is also included. This will facilitate the marking process. (editable)

❒A Jeopardy game to review figurative language (PPT)

***All pages are editable in a PowerPoint document. The background has been secured to ensure proper formatting.

Summary of lessons included:

❒ Lesson 1: Introduction to poetry – Includes a journal prompt, notes on how to approach poetry, an activity to familiarize students with poetry further, and a review on figurative language (with notes.)

❒ Lesson 2: Figurative Language Review – The lesson includes a journal prompt (a creative poetry activity), students will play Figurative Language Jeopardy (PPT) to review figurative language.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Menu Math Freebie”

by Southern Fried Teachin
4th – 6th Grade

Menu Math Freebie ~ FREEBIE ~ Menu Math ~ 4 Differentiated Math Activities ~ Part of my Menu Math

Students love to be able to make choices in their learning and have fun at the same time. So, why not let them!

Menu Math is a fantastic tool to use in your math classroom because it allows for differentiationchoicefun, and creativity. Students are encouraged to think critically and creatively through the use of Menu Math.

Menu Math consists of Main Dishes, Side Dishes, and Desserts.

Main Dishes are the main required projects, and they are done first.
Side Dishes are done AFTER the Main Dishes and involve more creativity and choice.
Desserts are done AFTER the Main Dishes and the Side Dishes and are the “fun” projects, where students get to create videos and games.

These 4 sample differentiated math activities are part of myMenu Math pack.

There are 242 total projects or activities from the following topics:
~ Addition – 16 activities
~ Subtraction – 16 activities
~ Multiplication – 27 activities
~ Division – 32 activities
~ Multi-Step Problems – 14 activities
~ Operations and Problem Solving – 7 activities
~ Place Value – whole numbers and decimals – 18 activities
~ Factors and Multiples, including prime and composite numbers – 31 activities
~ Fractions and Decimals, including equivalent fractions – 18 activities
~ Geometric Figures – 9 activities
~ Measurement – Volume, Weight, and Length – 27 activities
~ Perimeter and Area – 9 activities
~ Estimation – 9 activities
~ Time and Temperature – 9 activities

grading rubric along with a self evaluation is also included for you to use in assessing the Choice Boards.

My students loved Menu Math. My students worked on Menu Math while I met with my small groups for reteaching. They loved to be able to choose how they showed me what they know.

The best thing about Menu Math is that everything is changeable and adaptable. You can mix and match the activities and projects around however you want – including 2 place value activities, 3 addition activities, 1 multi-step problem activity, and 3 perimeter and area activities. You can use it to see their background knowledge and what they remember and know from the previous year. You can use it for review or assessment. It’s so flexible. If students are continuing to struggle in one area, continue the same type of activities onto the next week.

Knowing this is one thing, but actually finding time in our overcrowded class routines for our children to connect with nature is increasingly tricky…

This pack contains 36 cards with quick prompts that encourage engagement with the natural world…some of the cards can be used inside the classroom by looking out the window, others can be used while moving as a class from one part of the school to the other, and some are best used outside in the playground!

Respect your class’s need for a few minutes here and there to just burn off some energy, run bare feet and feel the wind in their hair……. in fact, why not take your shoes off and join them?

Poetry Unit

Description

And Editable version of this unit is available by clicking on the link below.

Poetry Unit (Editable)

I love poetry! I love reading it, I love teaching it, and I love the discussions I can have with my students because of it. May students (and some teachers) dislike poetry because they think it’s too difficult. I once had a student tell me that poetry was like a “code” that needed to be unlocked. Cringe!! Some poems are meant to be analyzed. Some poems and meant to sound beautiful, and some poems are meant to be simple and enjoyed for what they are. This unit has a little of all of those things.

Students love this poetry unit. It is a complete unit with no prep required on the teacher’s part. This 2-week unit includes a student guide, 12 detailed lesson plans, a multimedia presentation (no internet connection required), a complete answer key with annotated poems (this is a teacher favorite!) , and an end of the unit evaluation with ananswer key.

Just print it and teach it. It really is that easy.

This bundle includes individual lessons devised to teach students the importance of:

❒ Figurative language (its uses and effects)

❒ How to read poetry

❒ The importance of rhythm

❒ The importance of tone and attitude in a poem

❒ Types of poetry

❒ How to analyze poetry

❒ How to appreciate poetry (even when you don’t understand it)

This unit’s focus is the analysis of poetry and teaches students how to make inferences, which is a skill they must learn for their other subjects as well.

Poems include authors such as Emily Dickinson, Dorothy Parker, Thomas Gray, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Alfred Noyes, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Frost, and Walt Whitman.

The unit has been conceived to last 12 days – with 65 minute periods (although they are easy to modify).

The unit includes:

1 – The teacher guide (Contains 12 comprehensive lesson plans to teach the poems included in the unit. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU. )

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (28 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities, as well as an example of paragraph developing a theme in poetry (saving you time).

4 – A multimedia PowerPoint presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

A total of 68 pages + 17 slides are included in this package.

This unit is complete and does all of the thinking for you. All you need to do is to print out and photocopy the student package, and you’re set.

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Description

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Very often, students have difficulty with the analysis process involved in literature. Where they not only have to analyse but now have to apply their newfound skills to a well-developed paragraph, some students become overwhelmed with the process.

This particular activity will focus on both the analysis and writing a paragraph using the PEEL method.

Paragraph writing and analysis are two essential components in essay writing. To facilitate this process, I have created a lesson where students can become more comfortable with the revision process by modelling the proper steps from beginning to end. The lesson includes a modelling of the writing process from understanding the topic to the final draft. See preview for details

This lesson can only be used after students have read chapter 19 from the novel Frankenstein.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Behavior Reports in English and Spanish”

by Ruth Edge
Pre-Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

Weekly Behavior Reports with a teddy bear theme are available here in English and Spanish. What Kind of Day Did I Have? and What Kind of Day Did I Have in Kindergarten are both in this file so that it can be used for any primary grade or even Pre-K. The Spanish translation has really helped me since I teach in a school with a high concentration of Spanish speaking ELL students. This helped me better communicate with all my parents and behavior issues have dropped significantly. I hope it helps you also.

Please rate my work and follow me. I have several more FREE products in mind and will get them on here soon. My followers will see them here first.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Speech Therapy Articulation Development Age Chart”

by Karen Pritchett
Pre-Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

* Revised 4/19/14 to include a fun new Dr. You Know Who Theme! I’m including color and black and white of the new version, plus I’m leaving the old one because I just can’t seem to part with it yet. I hope you enjoy the fun new version of this speech sound chart.

This is just a little guideline we use in my school district based on a chart we all received in grad school. I spruced it up because we couldn’t find a good copy of the original one. (Mine was a copy of a copy of a copy!) I know there are multiple versions of this development chart out there, and the later developing sounds are often slightly different on each version. This has worked for us as a quick and easy version to show teachers and parents.

Death of a Salesman Unit (Digital activities included)

Description

***NEW – a digital copy of all of the student activities is included in this unit in Google Docs format to facilitate distance learning.

***An EDITABLE version of this unit is now available! Click here for more information: EDITABLE – Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman used to be one of my least favorite plays to teach. I found it depressing, and I had a difficult time teaching it in a way that was meaningful to students. Then, I created this bundle so that students would not only learn about drama, tragedy, irony, etc. but also think about their own futures, while they are contemplating their post-secondary education. While Willy Loman’s dreams are unrealistic and unattainable, students contemplate their own dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. You will definitely have more than a few excellent discussions when teaching this play.

This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two different options for end unit evaluations, which both contain evaluation grids and answer key. The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.

What the bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.)

The Student Guide contains 16 pages: (2 versions, with graphics and one without)

❒Notes on the American Dream

❒An anticipation guide

❒An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which can, later on, be related to the play.)

❒Thematic comprehension questions for each act

❒Work on motifs and symbols used in the play

❒Work on characterization

❒Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)

❒Review notes for students

Answer Key contains 29 pages:

❒Answers to ALL of the students’ work

❒Introduction to Arthur Miller

❒Comprehensive notes on each scene of the play (to help students understand and appreciate literary techniques used by the author)

❒List of themes and how they are developed – Revue sheet

The final evaluation contains three different options:

1) A unit test with an answer key. Contains 3 essay type questions.

2) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.

ALL EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS AND INCLUDE A COMPREHENSIVE ANSWER KEY.

The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:

Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.

Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading

Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)

Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading the play

Lesson 4: Character chart and reading the play

Lesson 5: Reading – exploring irony and the meaning of the title

Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy

Lesson 7: Theme development and review

Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)
