6th Grade ELA Common Core Posters- Emoji Print. Includes an individual poster for each standard as well as strand headings.
It is so important for students to see, read and become familiar with the standards they are learning. I display the standard we are working on each day on my white board. I print out all of the standards at the beginning of the year (and laminate them!). I then sort them by strand and hole punch each one. I put them on book rings so that I can easily post them on my board on a magnetic hook
I have compiled together a bank of homework menus for texts that are often studied. This means in one purchase you will get homework menus for:
Romeo and Juliet
A Christmas Carol
The Boy in the Striped Pyjama's
Lord of the Flies
The Creative Writing homework menu
Each of these homework menu's has 25 separate homework tasks that can be completed to assist students with the understanding of the text, and they can each be easily adapted to be easily set cover work for classes.
To tackle the lack of enthusiasm about homework in my school I created a Nando's style menu of homework. This one is focused on Arthur Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles. There are 25 homework tasks already planned, differentiated by 'spice'. Since using these menus, where the students pick for themselves, the amount and quality of homework has improved.
