I am a primary school teacher with a knack for teaching to the multiple intelligences, particularly the visual learner. My resources are inspired by my experience of teaching different students with unique ways of learning. I love the magic of helping them to make connections in learning. The grades 3-5 are mostly what I cater to, however, I also have some great resources for grades 1 and 2.

Levers - Sorting Activities for the Three Classes of Levers

(0)
Simple Machines: Levers - Sorting Activities for the Three Classes of Levers. Everything you need to know about levers is presented in this activity booklet. When teaching about Simple Machines, levers are usually taught first because students can clearly use them to identify the effort, load and fulcrum. This booklet explores the the first class lever, second class lever and third class lever, and illustrates them in posters, diagrams, a sorting table and a labeling activity. Real world examples of tools which are levers are also included as labelled pictures, e.g. a pair of scissors is a first class lever, a wheel barrow is a second class lever, and a pair of tweezers is a third class lever. An answer key is included for the activities.
Elapsed Time Rulers - 12 hour and 24 hour Time Spans

Elapsed Time Rulers - 12 hour and 24 hour Time Spans

(0)
Elapsed Time Rulers! There are many ways to teach elapsed time and over the years I've learned that having a visual time span for the students to follow is the easiest and fastest way for them to understand and map out elapsed time for themselves. These elapsed time rulers are available in three different time spans: - 24 hour ruler (from 12:00a.m. to 12:00p.m. to 12:00a.m. again) - a.m. 12 hour ruler - p.m. 12 hour ruler I colour coded them in red and blue; red for the hours (upper half) and blue for the minutes (lower half). Five minute and fifteen minute increments are also shown in blue. Use it like a number line. Count on from the starting time to the completion time of an event. Directions are included. Teachers can print them on transparent sheets to use with an overhead projector to demonstrate their use. To print them out for the students, use 8.5 x 14 (legal) sized paper to accommodate the full length of the rulers.

Each page has three word cards and they are to be printed on 8.5” x 11” (letter) sized paper. These cards incorporate simple definitions and examples of common prefixes.

Prefix, Suffix, Greek and Latin Root Word Wall Bundle

4 Resources
Prefix Suffix and Greek and Latin Roots Word Wall Bundle. In this zipped bundle you get the 4 in 1 word wall bundle of Prefixes, Suffixes, Greek Roots, and Latin Roots. There are 36 prefix word wall cards, 36 suffix word wall cards, 27 Greek Root word wall cards, and 33 Latin root word wall cards in this set. The definitions and illustrations are on each word card which makes this a great tool for memorizing the meaning of these roots and affixes. The illustrations are for visual learners to connect the roots and affixes to real life and to make sense of new and unfamiliar words. Just print, cut out and laminate the cards and use them as headers for doing ‘root of the day’ focus walls or use them as stand alone word walls. The prefixes are: mis, de, a, ab, abs, fore, tri, pre, re, dis, in, dif, semi, micro, ex, un, *im, sub, inter, pro, *im, tele, bi, super, under, uni/mono, bi/duo, tri, tetra/quad, quint/penta, sex/hexa, hepta/sept, oct, nona, deca, hecto, and kilo. * Note that the prefix ‘im-‘ has two meanings; one is ‘into’ and the other is ‘not’, so I have created two separate cards for the prefix ‘im-‘. The suffixes are: ous, ory, ly, ling, el, fy, ant, able, ible, ness, ess, ment, er, less, ence, ive, eer, ier, et, or, ism, ship, hood, ful, dom, ist, en, sion, ish, *al, acy, *al, ate, tion, ical, and esque. * Note that there are two different cards for the suffix ‘al’ because it has two different meanings. The Greek roots are: auto, bio, chron, dyna, gram, graph, hetero, homo, hydr, hypo, logy, meter/metr, micro, mis/miso, mono, morph, nym, phil, phobia, phon, photo/phos, pseudo, psycho, scope, techno, tele, and therm. The Latin roots are: ambi, aqua, aud, bene, cent, circum, contra, counter, dict, duc/duct, fac, form, fort, fract, ject, jud, mal, mater, mit, mort, multi, pater, port, rupt, scrib/scribe, sec/sect, sent, spec, struct, vid/vis, voc, fin/finit, and mob/mov/mot.
