My Promise to Plants

My Promise to Plants

In this activity, students decide how they would like to help the plants that live around them to survive. Students make a promise that can apply in their home and at school and illustrate these promises. They will create short imaginative and informative texts that show emerging use of appropriate text structure, sentence-level grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation and appropriate multimodal elements, for example illustrations and diagrams. They will represent and communicate observations and ideas in a variety of ways such as oral and written language, drawing and role play.

Phonetic Reading/Writing Cards

Phonetic Reading/Writing Cards

These 64 reading cards show both short and long phonetic words. They are printed in red and blue on blue lines, like the primary writing paper. Sets of cards like these have been used in Montessori classrooms for many years. A favorite game is for two children to divide up the cards and take turns holding them up and having their friend read the card. To make, simply print, cut and laminate, if desired.

Changing How We Use Energy

Changing How We Use Energy

In this lesson students find out which appliances in their classroom use energy and work together to create agreements for the classroom about switching off and adjusting these appliances. The lesson ends with students making informative stickers for these appliances. Students will use comprehension strategies to build literal meaning about key ideas and information in texts. They’ll be able to identify way to reduce energy use of items in class, clearly express instructions about how to use an appliance and work in groups to plan a text.
