FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Agree or Disagree? {OPINION mini-signs for class discussions}”

by Stacey Lloyd
6th - 12th Grade

Want a fun way to start discussions and get students thinking and engaging in your class?

I keep these mini placard-type sicks in a pot in my classroom and hand out to students whenever I want to facilitate a class discussion.

Ideas for use:
- At any point during a novel unit, to generate opinions on themes, plot or characters.
- At the start of an opinion-writing piece to generate ideas and thoughts.
- As an impromptu conversation/speaking lesson.
- Before analysing a poem, in response to statements related to the poem.
- Many other opportunities!

All you need are these, some sticks, glue and some controversial or debatable statements to get students engaging and sharing their opinions!

Why I really love using these:
Often in class, if I ask a question, it is often the same few students who really engage with the topic and give their opinions. When I use these, every single student has to have an opinion and then reveal it and be able to defend it! Plus, it means that instantly we can all look around the classroom and get an immediate sense of the general consensus!

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Fall Speech Therapy Open Ended Cupcake Game”

by Mrs H's Speech Therapy Room
2nd - 8th Grade

These adorable fall cupcakes make any activity more fun. Use them to add a game element to any of your therapy sessions. Here are just some of my ideas:

Memory : Make 1 copy of each page on cardstock and laminate. Cut apart and enjoy

Matching : Make one copy of each page on cardstock, cut the page so that the middle 2 columns remain attached and the other 12 pictures are cut out individually. Place individual cards upside down in the center of the table and give each of 2 players a game board. Each player selects a card and sees if it matches their board. If not, put it back and mix into the pile.

Requesting: Cut pages as described above. Give students the page with 6 pictures and have them use descriptions to request the cupcakes they need for their boards.

Describing: Hold up either 1 or 2 cards and have students either describe the single cupcake or compare and contrast 2 cupcakes.

Please leave some feedback with your ideas!!!

FREE MATH LESSON - “Halloween Addition and Subtraction Word Problems”

by Teacher Addict
3rd - 4th Grade

This is one page with six different word problems on it pertaining to Halloween.

This could be utilized different ways, but I was envisioning cutting them out and putting them at a math center. I also thought about having the students cut them out, glue each into their math journal and then solve and write about how they solved the problem underneath it. They could be given one each morning for about a week.

I also included the same page in black-and-white and one without pictures in case you want students to show their work on that piece of paper.


I have other season-related math task cards. If you are interested, click below:

Behavior Problems Got You Down?

Behavior Problems Got You Down? Have you been struggling
with Johnny or Sally since the first day of school? Do you rack your brain trying to come up with some creative ways to turn their unacceptable behavior around?  Let’s face it, some kids will always get under your skin, but you're the teacher, you're tough and you can deal with it. 


Back to Basics: 3 Tried & True Place Value Games

And we're back! We just finished our fifth week of school(!) and it looks different. It feels different. But it is SO good to be back in person, masks and all. It's a tricky balance of remembering "how I used to teach in person" and "what worked during distance learning" and "how do I keep the curriculum rigorous, while planning for some students to inevitably be quarantined at some point and not miss instruction". Luckily, here are some tried & true math lessons and activities that work well for the beginning of the year.

Underdog Stories - Books and Movies

Teacher your students about underdog stories where the kid who is less than perfect ends up succeeding at something by the end of the story. Good triumphs over evil and the weak become strong. Great lessons for today's children.
