Holidays and Seasonal
Teachers have so many tasks and responsibilities, and it seems like each year the list grows with little to nothing taken off their plates. The only way to lesson plan, in my opinion, is to do so with your team. In this post, I will cover how we mastered team lesson planning with lots of tips, ideas, and FREE lesson plan and PowerPoint slides templates that we used on our team.
Use these FREE QUESTION WORDS POSTERS to enhance your teaching of reading comprehension and writing strategies. The 5 Ws + 1 H are essential to understanding and retelling the important details of a text. They are equally important to the structure of writing. Display these posters in your classroom as anchor charts. #AnchorCharts #QuestionWords #5Ws #FREE #writingposters #retelling #readingstrategies #bulletinboards
Your busy bees will love Bee Mine Making Words Literacy Center. This open ended language arts activity is well suited to literacy centers, individual effort, or small group instruction. Give each student the letter tiles for one of the 7 seasonal words. Challenge them to create as many words as they can using that set of letters. The act of manipulating the letter tiles is especially important for young students who must learn to form words concretely before acquiring the abstract concepts.
Valentine’s Day Décor is a FREE set of pennants bearing messages of love for your students. Hang them together as a banner, or distribute them around your classroom for festive décor. Add them to bulletin boards for a splash of color or drape them over your classroom door to welcome one and all. #ValentinesDay #FREEBIE #classroomdecor #holidayclassroom #banners
