Mar

2017

A new way to “write the room” so littles can move lots while learning/writing!
Just print and laminate and put word cards up in your room.  Students will have fun making a sentence that matches the picture on their recording sheet.

I welcome your feedback.

FREE -- Opinion Writing: Plane or Car (FREEBIE)
Mar

FREE -- Opinion Writing: Plane or Car (FREEBIE)

This activity is connected to CCGPS ELACCKW1: Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are "writing" about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book.

The topic for this opinion writing FREEBIE is "transportation (a plane or a car)." These opinion writing activities are great to put in a writing center for students to choose which pictures to use to give their opinions about or for a mini lesson on opinion writing. This FREEBIE includes one page with picture choices of a plane or a car). The page says “Which do you like better? Why?” then it has five blank lines for students to write on to tell why they think their choice is the best. Students love telling which item they like better. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they think their choice is better. Teachers can also use these writing activities as a whole class activity. Assigning these activities for a homework assignment can include parents in helping increase their child’s writing skills. However you choose to use these activities, I hope your students develop a love for writing.

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: with
Mar

2017

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: with

This emergent reader for the sight word "with" is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture of their own and write a sentence of their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace. 

Title page: with (bubble letters to color)
Page 1: Can you run with me?
Page 2: Can you eat with me?
Page 3: Can you slide with me?
Page 4: Can you swing with me?
Page 5: Can you jump with me?
Page 6: Can you dance with me?
Page 7: Can you write with me?
Page 8: Can you read with me?
Page 9: Can you sing with me?
Page 10: I can play with you!
Page 11: creative sentence writing
Page 12: tracing and writing sight word

The PREVIEW shows all pages included.

The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation. 

This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. 

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities. 

***This is the 17th of 100 emergent readers for popular sight words (high frequency words) in the works. The readers will build on the words focused on in the previous readers as much as possible. 

ELACCKRF1a. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page-by-page.
ELACCKRF1d. Recognize and name all upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
ELACCKRF1b. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
ELACCKRF1c. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. ELACCKRF3a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of more frequent sounds for each consonant. 
ELACCKRF3c. Read common high-frequency words by sight. 
ELACCKRF4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.

Two-Step Equations Parter Pizzaz PLUS!
Mar
26
2017

You can use this Partner Pizzaz PLUS 
in many ways. 
Here are a couple:

Option 1: Pass out worksheet’s A, B, C, and D out to students. One per student, in A - D order. Have students work individually for enough time to work through each of the problems. Then have them form groups containing one of each of A, B, C, and D. Although they have different problems, they should all have the same answers. Allow some time to discuss answers that don’t match. Next, group students by letter. A’s in one group, B’s in another, and so on. Again, give them time to check answers and discuss. Working in this manner is like doing a JigSaw in English class!

Option 2: You can copy only sheets A and B and use as a regular Partner Pizzaz. Hand out worksheets to students. Half of the class gets “A” and half gets “B.” Have them work individually for enough time to work through the problems. Then have the A’s partner up with the B’s. They should check their answers with one another. Even though their problems are different, the answers should be the same. If they come upon an answer that doesn’t match, have them look at each other’s work and discuss.

Be creative! I’m sure you can find even more ways to use these as a collaborative tool in your classroom!
