Classroom Freebies Too

Happy Independence Day!

This week on my blog, Artistry of Education, I shared a poetry printable called Two Poems for Independence Day.  I love reading and writing poetry with my students, and I also share on the same post a couple of teaching suggestions that are not holiday dependent.

Happy Independence Day to my American readers!

Freebie - Antonym Game

Hi there! This is Bex from  Reading and Writing Redhead! I am so glad to be on summer vacation, but I do miss my kiddos- I had a good group this year - how about you? I have been keeping busy with creating fun new products and revisiting ones and I already have and I found this freebie for you!

This is a Superstar Antonyms I Have Who Has Game.  It includes 12 cards in the I Have Who Has format.  It is terrific to use with small groups. 

My students have enjoyed playing I Have... games.  Have yours? Maybe give this one a try!  Click here on on either preview image to grab it.









Free 2015/16 School Year Calendar

Summer time is when I do most of my organizing for the upcoming school year. Every year I print off a calendar to help me stay organized. Here is this year's calendar!
16-School-Year-Calendar-741086
Not only do I use this to keep myself organized, I use it to send home with students each month. I write out all upcoming events, as well as who has sharing on which days. Parents appreciate it and I have fewer students saying they didn't know when their sharing day was. A win-win situation :) 
If you use it for anything else I would love to hear about it.

Graphic Organizer for Compare and Contrast


There are several graphic organizers to help students record similarities and differences between two categories.  My favorite is the box and t-chart.  To download the box and t-chart form shown below, please visit this post at Artistry of Education.

This chart may be used to record information while students read.  I have also used it to help students organize information for a compare and contrast essay.

Measurement in Centimeters


Do your students need hands on practice with measurement?  Here is a recording sheet for estimating and measuring in centimeters.  This could be introduced whole group or for small group work.  This would make a great math station or even a homework assignment.

Daily 5: Word Work Freebie

This is Alison Whiteley from Toad-ally Exceptional with a freebie and some ideas for your Daily 5 word work groups.

Geometry Vocabulary Activity: Matching Page

 
Here is a study sheet I use with my students that lists some important geometry vocabulary words.  I give this as a pretest for the unit and we correct as a class.  I make sure that I plan a variety of activities that use these words in context.

Text Feature Scavenger Hunt



I have used this form with my fourth graders to introduce, practice and review text features.  We used them for non-fiction books, magazines, and this year our subscription to Scholastic News.  

One way to use this tool is to make a list of text features and have them search the class library to find them.
