Tools for Back to School

I make sure my students have plenty of learning tools at their fingertips!  If the students are playing a math game, or sharing some map skills task cards at a center, they'll need tools to calculate their sums or maps to perform their tasks.

I have a sample freebie that you can see in this image that includes some math, some reading, and some Science tools. The Math includes a color coded grid from 0 to 120.  The reading includes a list of fiction and non fiction genres.  The Science has a word bank of loads of science words.  I'm hoping that sparks lots of conversations!

 Come on over to Elementary Matters to download your freebie and see more of the Everything Tool Kit.

Informational Text and Graphic Organizers for Science


In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick rocked the scientific world with the publication of their one page paper on the structure of the DNA molecule.  This one-page paper is an excellent source of informational text that science teachers can use to cover the Common Core State Standards for the Science and Technical Subjects.

Combine this marvelous science paper with some graphic organizers for the students to use, and you have a great science lesson.

Back to School Writing Freebie

Friends~Today I am sharing a 2 page Back to School Writing Freebie!  Every August, I begin to assess writing skills with some prompts based on skills taught in first and second grade.  Like~All Abouts, How tos, Opinion Writing, and Poetry.  I created several prompts for each area so that I can see where they are at at the beginning of the year.

Here is one of the first prompts I give out to my students.  It starts with a making list activity and then they use the list to help them write about one of their favorite back to school topics. 

I always get several that love shopping for school supplies or packing their lunch!

OR... use this at the end of the year and have students write about their summer plans.  Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board.

A Keepsake Poster Card For The Teacher

This is a quick and easy keepsake card for the teacher.  Packet includes a note home to parents.  Include a sheet of construction paper, so they can trace and cut out their child's hand.

Students write a special note to their teacher on their paper hand and then sign it, returning their handprint in the envelope.


Younger students can dictate what they want to say.  Print the poster, mount on a large sheet of construction paper (or scrapbook paper) and arrange the handprints around the edges.

This is a nice end of the year, back to school, or birthday card for the teacher.  Click on the link to get your copy. Keepsake card for the teacher.
