The Science Behind Slime

The Science Behind Slime

(0)
Slime is all of the rage right now, right? My kids love making it. It doesn’t matter the color, glitter or no glitter, glow in the dark or regular…they all want to make slime! I love slime because it is easy and inexpensive to make. I have always wanted to bring it to the classroom though in the form of a science experiment. However, I always felt that was a bit of a stretch. It turns out, it isn’t. Slime is Chemistry in its most basic form, which is great for elementary kids. I mean they are not really ready for Chemistry in its most advanced form, right? I decided to create a few resources to go with the hands-on experiment. If you know me at all, you know I always try my hardest to integrate reading and writing into social studies and science. Does this mean social studies and science take a backseat? No way. These subjects are just as important as reading, writing, and math. However, if I can integrate a few things into one lesson…ding ding, that is a winner lesson for me! Check out the preview to see what is included in this engaging lesson! The students will do an experiment, read a passage, answer comprehension questions and make observations! Make it a goal to reach your students where they are. Slime is all the rage right now. My kids at home want to make it all of the time and classroom students do too. You will win some major brownie points by doing this hands-on activity with your students.

Procedural Text (Lemonade Themed)

Use Lemonade to help teach procedural text! This set is engaging to kids and easy prep for the teacher! Below is a list of activities included! Lemonade Passage: Read the passage and answer the questions. Recipe Card: Read the recipe card. Lemonade Chain: Cut out the pieces of the chain and put them in order…making a chain. Inferred Steps: Procedural text doesn’t always include all of the steps we need. Read the inferred steps on the puzzle pieces, cut them out, and glue them on the next page in the correct order. Updated Recipe Card: Fill in the steps on the updated recipe card (including the three inferred steps.) All steps should be in logical order.
Procedural Text Mystery
HillarysTeachingAdventuresHillarysTeachingAdventures

Procedural Text Mystery

(0)
I am obsessed with this activity! It is really 3 practice procedural text activities rolled into one lesson! In groups, students will start with by solving a letter mystery to spell out the word PROCEDURE. Once that is done, they will flip those cards over to solve another procedural text mystery by pulling instruction cards out of a bag and putting them in order. Finally, they will fill out a higher level questioning task sheet about the instruction cards! The students will have to justify their answers and solve the final mystery of “what they are making or creating.” All of these three components are connected to make less work on the teacher and create more engagement for the students! Here are the teacher instructions that are provided in the product! Please check out the preview also! Teacher Instructions: Each table will receive a set of PROCEDURE letter cards (these cards should be folded on the dotted line with the words folded BACK behind the letter and mixed up.) Each table will also receive a PROCEDURAL TEXT MYSTERY Card and a set of card instructions (6) for procedure they have to put in order and the task sheet that goes with it. Putting these all in baggies will help! I also run each group off on different color paper! Each table will FIRST complete the PROCEDURAL TEXT MYSTERY CARD with the PROCEDURE letters. The students will follow the instructions on the card to put the letters in order. (The students will not know what word these letters spell until the follow the instructions on the card. Next, they will flip each letter card over and follow the instructions on the back of that card. While they are following those instructions, they will be ordering the 6 procedure cards and filling in their task sheet. You or the students can check the answer keys provided to see if they did the procedure correctly! In the end, the students have completed three procedural text activities rolled into one! There are enough for 5 groups to each have a different procedural text instruction set! Procedural Instructions Include: -Grilled Cheese -Play-Doh -Lemonade -Tic-Tac-Toe -Drawing a Snowman If this seems confusing, I will be doing a FACEBOOK Live video tonight and you can see what this activity is all about! You will be able to find it here after it is completed! Facebook Live Video I hope you will check this out! My students love this activity and it is great for an observation or just to review procedural text! Answer Keys are Included!

Wake Up Your Brain: November

(0)
While working on Wake Up Your Brain, your students will be enhancing their problem solving, common sense, and inquisitive thinking skills. Teachers: -Do Wake Up Your Brain first thing in the mornings! -The Wake Up Your Brain Grid Page (slide 1) is clickable. Simply click a photo you want the students to do, then it will go to that photo. -Project the photo on the board or wall. -The students will write their answers with dry erase markers on their desks (or dry erase boards) so this will be completely paperless. -The class will discuss their answers after most are finished! There are five key components to Wake Up Your Brain. Solve Problems Ask Questions Build Inferences Make Connections Construct a Plan Solve Problems: Students will look for any problem that MIGHT could occur in the picture. Then students will solve that “problem.” Ask Questions: After studying the picture, students will ask questions about things they want to know. Then students will determine a way they could hypothetically learn the answers to these questions. Build Inferences: Students will study the picture and write three inferences about the picture. Then students will write something they DO NOT know about the picture. Make Connections: The students will connect the picture to their life in some way. Construct a Plan: Students can change ONE thing in the picture. What will they change and how will they change it? If students have trouble, just tell them to do the best they can! We are practicing our thinking and there is no “right” answer!

The Science Behind an Apple

Apple are delicious and healthy! Kids usually love apples and they are safe for kids with allergies. There are some great experiments you can do with apples but most of them are just for fun. I wanted to actually teach the students something about the science of apples. As it turns out, apples have a chemical reaction with the air as soon as they are cut! Kids ask me all of the time, why do apples turn brown? Here you go! I decided to create a few resources to go with the hands-on experiment. If you know me at all, you know I always try my hardest to integrate reading and writing into social studies and science. Does this mean social studies and science take a backseat? No way. These subjects are just as important as reading, writing, and math. However, if I can integrate a few things into one lesson…ding ding, that is a winner lesson for me! Check out the preview to see what is included in this engaging lesson! The students will do an experiment, read a passage, answer comprehension questions and make observations! Make it a goal to reach your students where they are. Apples are healthy, delicious, and safe for the classroom! My kids at home love to experiment with food and classroom students do too.

Emergency Sub Plans (Literacy Grades 3-5)

Emergency Sub Plans (Literacy Grades 3-5)

(0)
Emergency Sub Plans! (Literacy Grades 3-5) Have you ever been in a pickle and had to call in sick at the last minute? I have known teachers that will have to go to the school sick just to write sub plans and go back home! Do not do this to yourself! These are DONE! 10 days of Literacy Sub Plans, ready to print, stack, and leave! Here is how they work! Each day of sub plans includes the following items…and there are 10 days of these sub plans! —Morning Work —A Fiction or Non-Fiction Passages (Questions and Answer Keys are included with the passages!) —A Reading Responses —Word Work Pages —Writing Prompts —Fast Finisher Task Cards And…MOST IMPORTANTLY… A lesson plan- this lesson plan is generic enough to fit any day but specific enough to help the sub know exactly what to do with these activities; just place it on top of the student activities and you are ready. The only thing missing is the “times” because I know everyone’s schedule is different. Just have a schedule for him or her nearby, and then these lesson plan will tell the sub exactly what he or she needs to do, approximate time to spend on the activity, and what activity to move onto next. DISCLAIMER: Since these are just LITERACY plans, I have made the lesson plans for departmentalized teachers. Meaning, these lessons will be done with a morning group and an afternoon group. IF YOU ARE NOT DEPARTMENTALIZED…these are still for you! You would have to add math activities of your own, but half of your day would be COMPLETE! EVERYTHING is done for you! I encourage you to buy these, run the copies, and place them in a “sub tub” or “sub drawer.” Then your fellow teachers can go right to it when you are sick, pull them out, and you are done! What a lifesaver!
