Read and Write the Room Packet

Reading and writing the room is an interesting and fun way for students to practice a variety of standards.  You can start a read and write the room journal anytime during the year. I have used them for my kinders, 1st and 2nd graders.  No matter what the grade, they seemed to really enjoy this activity, which fits in well with Daily 5.

The packet includes:
  • 4 options for journal worksheets
  • A set of alphabet read the room worksheets
  • 3 cover options for the journal notebook
  • A roam the room ABCDe-tective worksheet
  • A set of "read the room" alphabet cards

  • A tip list of things you can do with the cards, plus
  • Kaboom cards to play an alphabet game.
These journals are a great way to show parents how their child is progressing when you have parent-teacher conferences, and make a nice keepsake at the end of the year.

Earth Day Writing Prompt Craftivity

Earth Day is April 22nd.  As teachers, I think it's important to make a little time to discuss some simple ways how even children can make a difference. 

This "Environmental Footprint" Packet includes a writing prompt, craft patterns and a checklist of things people can do to reduce their footprint on the earth.

The packet includes 2 options. Students can simply trace their foot with their shoe on, or turn it into a flip flop with my pattern.

They can glue this to a flat earth or one that's 3D by gluing 3 "earth" circles together to make a sphere.
Children write on the shoe portion, how they will leave less of a footprint on the earth.

Click on the link for interesting blog article about carbon footprints and this fun FREEBIE: "Leave A Smaller Footprint on the Earth" writing prompt craft for Earth Day.

Complex Operation Posters from Raki’s Rad Resources

Free Complex Operations Posters - give your students three ways to do long division and to subtract across zeros.  From Raki's Rad Resources

Understanding that there are multiple ways to work through any type of problem builds flexibility of mind in our students.  When I was teaching overseas, I had multiple new strategies introduced to me and I created these posters to help my students understand how different strategies could be used to solve long division, long multiplication, long subtraction and long addition problems.  Download all four of these Complex Operation Posters for free from my Teachers Pay Teachers store and hang them on your bulletin board or add them to your students’ interactive notebooks.
