The way I use it...  
Students enjoy this project! This is a 1-2 week project. As I scaffold and model the information to my students, I have students write in the due dates on the checklist. I make this an at-school project and have students keep their brochure in a designated location.

Lastly, there are additional resources such as the checklist, postcards, key word list, or graphic organizers that are available to meet student needs. The homepage and speech are optional activities that you can use with your students.

Happy Teaching!

Speech Therapy; Grades K-4

Using storybooks in speech and language therapy allows us to target meaningful vocabulary and language objectives within the context of literature and well-constructed narratives. This book, "They All Saw A CAT" is great for building descriptive language skills and talking about point of view. It is a lot of fun to help kids see how the cat is viewed by each of the other animals - bigger, smaller, mean, furry.  Included in the project is a lesson plan for multiple days’ worth of activities. Use the book for up to 4 sessions; Matching cards for playing a Memory-type game; match the animal with how it saw the cat; 3 matching worksheets for matching the animal with how it saw the cat; Mix & match puzzles; and much more.  See the full details on the product page!

All Subject Areas; Grades PreK-6

Integrate geography, math, and writing activities using Edith Baer's book, This Is the Way We Go to SchoolStudents learn about the different ways kids around the world go to school, and use a world map to locate each place. The class creates a tally chart and a bar graph to show how they all get to school. Questions for analyzing the data are included. Students complete a descriptive writing prompt sharing a new way to get to school - fun for sharing and/or making a class book.

ELA/Reading; Grades K-1

Get inviting literacy centers for your learners to practice reading color words. There are 80 clothespin clip cards with a color word and a choice of three pictures printed on each card. Learners read the word and clip a clothespin to the picture of that color object. You may use all the cards, select the cards that address specific color words for your lesson, or select the cards that best meet your learners’ needs. These cards are great for morning tubs, early finishers, literacy centers, and take home practice. The following color words are addressed in this packet: red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, brown, black, pink, and white. Please Note: How colors print often varies on individual printers. The free preview has a printer test page included that has a sample of each color from the graphics used in the packet. You may download the preview and print that page to determine how the colors will print on your printer before purchasing the resource. 

As always, I encourage comments below and any ideas or suggestions by tweeting me @ATeachersTeach or contacting me via e-mail.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Handwriting Freebie for Smartboard - Letter Formation Practice”

by Smart Kinder Kids
Pre-Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

This is a great smartboard to have on hand for introducing new letters to little learners. Each slide shows the correct formation of the letter and allows for the student to practice forming it themselves. You can separate each letter out into its own file or keep them stored together.

In my class, we use them whole group to introduce new letters but students also use them during small group and individual practice time (Daily 5 etc.) to give them further opportunities to work on handwriting.

In addition to the 4 colored markers that come with your smartboard, consider teaching your students how to select the marker button in the toolbox at the top of your screen (it is the one directly below the black arrow) to select additional marker/crayon/pen options and colors. My students loves the "creative pens" the most. 

This freebie is also great because it gives your little ones a chance to practice writing on the smartboard. Kids usually find it difficult at first because if their hand is on the board at all the marker will not write correctly, so having a large letter to trace helps them learn the skill of writing properly on the board.

If you like this item, please consider providing positive feedback in my TpT store. You can look for other great smartboard activities by searching "Leigh Majer" on TpT or visiting my blog: 
where there are products, links and even some free tutorials for those wanting to learn how to design their own Smartboard files!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Letter C Unit, Differentiated Letter Writing Pages & Activities”

by Lessons for Little Ones by Tina O'Block
Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten

This differentiated Letter C Unit contains a wide variety of alphabet activities that address various learning styles. Songs, games, puppets, visuals, activities, art projects, etc. are all used to teach the letter allowing you to reach the learning needs and interests of every student. These letter activities were created with young children in mind and have plenty of hands-on experiences that get the children involved in the learning process.


•Hands-on alphabet activities for teaching letter recognition and pre-reading skills that utilize a variety of teaching styles (cookie for Carrie Cat, clam digging, car parking, colors, c crawl, caterpillars, cakes, and more)

•Patterns (caterpillar, cake, clams, candy cane, cookie jars) and picture cards in color and b/w (candle, carrot, cat, caterpillar, corn, cow)

•A puppet mascot in color and b/w (Carrie Cat) and student reward/badge in color and b/w

•Differentiated letter pages (6) to practice writing skills, letter formation, letter recognition, and sounds PLUS The Life Cycle of a Butterfly book and C is for Counting, Cake, & Candles skill page

•A Suggested Book List (age appropriate literature to supplement the unit)

•Suggestions for incorporating the following apps - Pic Collage for Kids, Hello Crayons, ChatterPix Kids

The letter C writing pages are designed for various motor skill development levels. They range from large "bubble" alphabet letters to writing the letters within 3 lines. There are also worksheets to practice letter recognition and letter sounds. Each practice page is designed to give children practice with writing skills and beginning reading while simultaneously enhancing their fine motor skill development through coloring, tracing, cutting, and pasting.Teachers can use them in all of their classes and parents can use them year to year as their children grow and mature.

A puppet mascot is suggested to introduce and teach the letter. The puppet's name begins with the unit's letter helping children remember and learn the letter and its sound. In addition, interactive activities with the puppet, songs, games, and hands-on activities keep the children's interest and make learning fun! Instructions for using the puppet with the app ChatterPIx Kids are also provided.

This letter C unit also includes an individual reward/braggin' badge to recognize achievement and mastery of the letter. My students really looked forward to receiving their badges for each letter!

Patterns/reproducibles needed for the letter C activities, the puppet, picture cards, student rewards/badges, and instructions for incorporating apps are included making preparing for class convenient and easy!
