FREE MISC. LESSON - “Stress-Free Homework Check Sheet”

by Stress-Free Teaching
2nd - 6th Grade

I created this system to make the whole process of collecting and checking off homework easier. Who doesn’t want that? 

My classroom is set up with table groups consisting of 4 - 5 students at each group. A table captain is selected each week. This person collects and fills out the sheet each morning. Names are entered on the side and the type of homework across the top. The table captain checks off whether the assignments were completed, enters an A for absent students or and I for incomplete work. This saves me valuable time in the morning!

These Figurative Language Posters were designed for use with my Poetry and Figurative Language Mini-unit, which was created for a group of students who needed extra practice with fluency and a beginner’s understanding of poetry. Each day provided a quick lesson on one characteristic or type of figurative language, multiple readings of a short poem, and practice using the term of the day. The Figurative Language Posters served as a reminder of important terms while we studied.

Included in this product are 13 posters - one for each figurative language term that is covered in the packet. Each poster gives the definition of the term and most list an example. Can be used for bulletin boards, cover pages on packets, in learning centers, etc. Terms covered are:

FREE MISC. LESSON - “How to Solve LOGIC PUZZLES Using Grids: Increase Critical Thinking Skills FREE”

by Strawberry Shake
3rd - 12th Grade

My students LOVE solving PUZZLES!!

Logic puzzles test students’ critical thinking in a fun way. They challenge students to read, organize and analyze information to solve an interesting problem. The answers to logic puzzle questions never explicitly appear in the clues; they must be inferred.

Solving logic puzzles helps develop critical thinking skills important in all subjects and helps students learn to rely upon their own ability to reason. Students who can solve logic problems have greater confidence in being able to tackle problems to which the answers are not immediately evident.

Logic puzzles can be suitable for young children as soon as they are able to read the clues. By including more variables, puzzles can be challenging for older or more experienced solvers.

I often provide puzzles at several levels of difficulty for my students to complete. They can choose on their own which puzzle is right for their abilities. Sometimes the puzzles are related to the academic information we’re working on in class, but often not. The puzzles are their own lesson – training for the students’ brains.

Try it out for yourself! This guide will teach you how to solve logic puzzles using the grid method. One beginner level puzzle is provided for you to practice.

FREE MISC. LESSON - “Weekly Classroom Organization”

by Mrs D's Classroom
Pre-Kindergarten - 12th Grade

Included in this freebie are editable, color-coded files to get your classroom organized! A lesson plan template, drawer labels, and classroom display pages are included in the zip file. (You will need the Excel program if you choose to edit.) 

The Monday through Friday pages can be used in a multitude of ways. I've laminated them and used them as dry erase pages to write homework on and calendar reminders for students. I have printed them in smaller versions for my own organizational purposes. The daily color band (blue, green, yellow, purple & orange) corresponds with other daily activities, such as math centers, I do in my classroom. Color-coding is a very easy thing for students and substitutes to follow!

Check out the notes I've included for more ideas of how to get yourself (and your students) organized today!

FREE MATH LESSON - “Probability”

by Brain Ninjas
4th - 6th Grade

Your students can explore probability outcomes by moving through ten stations that each pose a question which can be answered with more likely, less likely, equally likely, possible, impossible or certain. One questions reads: What is the chance this 6 sided dice will land on a number between one and six? (certain) Some students had to pick up the die and look at all the sides while others could figure it out in their minds. Either way, students stay accountable by filling out a passport with each of their answers. An answer key is included.

If you have three 6-sided dice, three decks of cards and a coin you have the majority of the supplies needed to set up. Templates and instructions are included to make three simple spinners. Just print the station cards and set up. It's so simple your students can even set it up for you.

These stations were tested with fourth and fifth grade students who thought it was a fun way to practice the terms. They had a better understanding of the meaning of each of the terms and could provide different scenarios that would provide similar or alternative outcomes.

This activity directly aligns with the Alberta Program of Studies Math-Statistics and Probability (Chance and Uncertainty) Grade 5 SO3 SO4.
