Predictions and Strategies

Predictions and Strategies

Have you ever noticed that when kids are asked to make a prediction about what will happen NEXT in a story, they often predict what might happen at the end of the story?

 It's important to model how to predict what will happen in the next chapter or pages that are assigned. Download this free worksheet to give your students more practice predicting outcomes. Great for centers, literature circles, guided reading or independent work.

Punch or Stamp Cards Behavior Management

I've talked with more teachers lately who say their students' behavior isn't what it should be.
Have you noticed the same thing happening in your classroom?
If so, try my Punch cards. If you prefer, you can stamp them instead of punching them with a hole punch.

Over the years, I tried many ways to improve my students' behavior but it wasn't until I started using this method consistently, that it happened. The cards can also be used to motivate students to complete class and homework.

Word Art Fun

If you haven't visited the word art site Tagxedo, you're in for a surprise.  Creating word pictures is a super-fun way to practice spelling, word lists, and using adjectives in writing, all while creating a lovely work of art that can be turned into notebook covers, anchor charts, posters, bulletin boards,  games, cards, and crafts.

Click on the link to pop on over to my blog to see all the fun FREEBIES that I created, with ideas and tips for lots more. 

Use my patterns to create Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduation and end-of-the-year posters, cards, and writing prompt headers. There are so many possibilities!

I made a butterfly one filled with all of our new butterfly science vocabulary, and my students enjoy playing "I Spy" a CVC and Dolch word with those posters. 

Click on the link and let the word work ed-venture begin!

Spring Subtraction Game

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Here's a subtraction game for spring that has a dual purpose.  First, your students will take turns rolling two dice, subtracting the numbers, and coloring the difference. The first player to color all of his or her spaces wins the game.





Since each player has his own game board and colors the spaces any color of his choice, you're going to have an amazing variety of beautiful watering cans when they're completed. So pretty, in fact, that they'll make a great decoration for your classroom windows this spring!




Happy Teaching!
