Free Listening Directions Activities!

I realize that following directions skills take some practice, like any other skill students need to learn. They have to be continuously practiced.

So, I created a fun little product that does focus on those listening skills!  It is called Following Directions in the K-2 Common Core Classroom!

Spelling Homework Menu Packet FREEBIE!

Menus are not hard work to put together, and can actually be used from year to year. Once you have created a menu for a certain topic, you can use it again!

In my opinion, menus offer choices for students to interact with a given topic by varying the content, process, and/or product (which is DI 101).  While the format may look different, in essence, they are just a DI lesson plan in a different template.  The key with menus is not to force a specific choice, but rather give lots of options so that the student sees this as a learning opportunity, rather than “boring work that we are being forced to do.”

Weekly Planning Organization!

I start by going through my lesson plans, and start running any copies I need or manipulatives and placing them in the appropriate day folder.

My lesson plan crate was kept on a table, counter top, or has even been located on an extra student desk that was shoved against a wall.  Inside, I place hanging files and matching file folders in whatever color scheme or theme you choose. Then, I place labels for each day of the week on my file folders.

File Folder Freebie!

Super quick idea today! You can make your own 4-pocket folders from two 2-pocket folders without needing staples, tape, binding machines, or anything else!

I included labels for a writing folder to move the pages along in the writing process or for a multi-subject folder to keep those papers that are started, but not quite finished.  Just have students place their paper into the correct folder and then grab it again the next day when you are ready to start your lesson!
