Drama Club Freebie: Interview a Fairy Tale Character

A little over a year ago, I started an afterschool drama club for third through sixth graders.  One of the drama games I have played with older students is Fairy Tale News, where a reporter interviews a character from a fairy tale.  I added a writing component to this activity and I have used it in my general education class as well.

To download a free printable form for Interview a Fairy Tale Character, visit Artistry of Education.  Students can write and perform these short plays in class practicing writing, speaking, and listening skills.

Santa's Helpers Calendar Cards

I love picking a theme each December to help keep me and my students focussed and having fun. This year we will be learning about Santa's helpers...elves and reindeers!! To kick off our month I made some calendar cards featuring both of these adorable North Pole friends. Click on the picture to pick up a set - they can also be used for math activities, number activity bins and stations!

Writing Checklists for Peer Editing

I want my students to learn how to edit each other's work.  I tell them that professional writers know they don't catch their own mistakes and have others look over their work before submitting it for publication.

I created this free set of checklists for my own classroom and it has quickly become a popular freebie.  I hope you get a lot of use out of it also.

Oh, Do You Know the Pronoun Song?

Do you?

I am happy to say that I know the pronoun song.

We sing it ALL. THE. TIME. :)

My kids have even asked for copies to go in their homework journals so they can sing it to their parents.

I bet my parents are just as excited as I am. HA!

I'm happy to share it with you - Come on over to Third Grade Bookworm to get your copy!

Some Early Holiday Cheer

Hello! It's Mrs. D from The Third Wheel back again. After a busy November with the arrival of our new little bundle, I am finally getting back online and back to blogging. You forget how fast the days fly by when you are sleeping in 2-hour chunks.

Today I am bringing you a freebie to help you prep all those holiday gifts for your students...Ready-to-Print Gift Tags! I've designed them with 6 different designs, including a low-ink option and an option for students who do not celebrate winter holidays.

As you can see below, I love to use them with hot cocoa, marshmallows, and candy canes! They make a super easy, inexpensive holiday gift that won't end up in the trash as soon as it arrives home in the backpack.

Get your set free by clicking the image below. 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 

Writing about the Past, Present, and Future

I was working on a series of writing units for realistic fiction, historical fiction and science fiction, when it occurred to me that I could choose a basic daily task, like going to school, and write about it in each genre.  I created a simple graphic organizer for students to brainstorm different stories this way.

Division Fact Fluency

A week ago, I shared Quiz Me Multiplication with the Classroom Freebies Too community.  Just as my students need to practice their multiplication facts.  I also have them practice their division facts.

To download this two page activity, go to this post on Artistry of Education.  I print out the page back to back and put it in a plastic sleeve.  It becomes a quick daily practice as a part of math menus.  Students go over a column of facts then have someone else "Quiz Me."  I also send the page home for homework.
