Homework Lotto and Behavior Lotto Games

Homework Lotto and Behavior Lotto Games

This packet comes with 2 different lotto game boards. One is Homework Lotto and the other is Behavior Lotto. There are 2 different sizes in the pack as well. An 8 x 11 board for use under a document camera (maybe) and an 11 x 17 board that can be hung on a white board or bulletin board. When homework is brought back to school, the child gets to put his/her game piece on the board. After everyone has placed their piece, you draw out a letter-number combination. I usually pull out about 3 or 4. The children on the winning spots win some sort of small prize! Great motivator ...who wouldn't like a little prize?! *Check out my blog for more ideas and pics of things I do in my classroom. Hilary Rockin' Teacher Materials

Fluency Folders to Help Get Families Involved with Fluency

Fluency Folders to Help Get Families Involved with Fluency

With the new Common Core Standards and teacher evaluations, I needed to be able to prove the growth in some of my lower learners. I also use this folder to help families understand the importance of fluency. The folder provides them with information that help them, help their kids. It gives them step by step information on how to get started with reading passages. I use these pages with fluency passages from Lakeshore Learning and I even found another awesome website for resources. There are links to both of these resources included in this pack. Thanks!

Multiple Meaning Words~Homonyms, with Worksheets to Illustrate

Multiple Meaning Words~Homonyms, with Worksheets to Illustrate

Help your students learn about multiple meaning words that have the same spellings. Some people call them homonyms, but there is some controversy about what they are really called!.I wanted to make an activity to help my 2nd graders learn about multiple meaning words. I wanted them to get practical experience actually using the words in sentences. I used cards with pictures on them to help the students visualize the different meanings of the words in a concrete way. The words included in this pack with pictures on the words are: bowl, bat, check, cold, cook, crane, cut, fall, fish, fly, foot, kid, leaves, mouse, note, palm, play, ring, tie, watch, box, saw, bank, duck There are also worksheet pages that you can use to assess or reinforce learning. Each page has a word with a multiple meaning. The children draw a picture of two of the meanings and write a sentence to describe the word. Have fun! Thanks! Hilary Lewis

Genre Posters

Genre Posters

These colorful posters will help your students readily identify various genres in literature in a fun way. Use them to sort your classroom library books into different areas, or just use them as a reference in your library. Genres included are: Informational & Expository Text Fantasy Mystery Poetry Biography Realistic Fiction Autobiography Historical Fiction Traditional Literature Science Fiction There is an individual genre reference page included as well! ALSO INCLUDED..., the individual reference page is great to help young children learn to choose a variety of books and it is simple and easy for them to use. I print enough copies for the entire class in color. I then put the reference page into a sheet protector that goes into a durable, plastic folder for each child. (I keep the folders with the reference pages for next year's class so I don't have to copy from year to year)... The students refer to this page when they write down the names of books that they have read. They also graph their reading so they can see if they tend to read from the same genre too much or if they do a good job of reading a variety of materials. It is also a good way for me to monitor their reading and allows me to make suggestions based on what they have read. If you like this item, please rate it and give me a vote!

Fishbowl Discussion Teacher Organization Tool

Fishbowl Discussion Teacher Organization Tool

ou may know, I've been moved to a 3rd grade gifted and talented classroom. I wasn't so sure about it at first, but I have to say I am loving it! I love the discussions we have and using a fishbowl really gets the kids talking about the text or other issues. It is so beneficial because I am there listening and taking notes to check for understanding and deeper thinking. It has also helped the kids run their own book clubs because they are used to having discussions. I was just drawing a circle and dividing it up, but I invariably ended up with too few or too many sections. These pages help with that situation. I have included pages with 8 sections, 10 sections, and 12 sections. There is also a place for the title of the text, the question being discussed, and an information page of how I run fishbowls in my room. Hope this helps keep you organize with your students! Thanks for stopping by! Hilary Lewis Rockin' Teacher Materials
