Teaching Ecology

Click any image to
download activity.
Of all of the freebies I offer, this may be my most favorite!!  This is the first assignment I give my students as I begin to teach my lessons on ecology and the environment.  The activity requires that students do a little research and a lot of thinking about the ecology and the resources of their community.  After completing the ecological survey activity, students will have a much improved idea about their local environment.   Enjoy!

Haunted Onomatopoeia House: Song and Games For Halloween

This haunted house song, to the tune of Wheels on the Bus is a wonderful activity for your Halloween party day.

The packet includes 17 matching picture cards, as well as 15 word cards.

Since most of the words are onomatopoeia words, you have a teachable moment to explain that to your students.  I've included an onomatopoeia poster. 

Make extra sets of the cards and use for games like Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" You can also make a set to cut up as puzzles and use for an independent center.

The packet also includes a super-fun "What's Missing?" Halloween circle game that my Y5's absolutely LOVED! It's simple, easy and quick and great for helping students practice their memorization skills.

Pumpkin Payment

Are you doing money with your kiddos?  If so, I think you'll like Pumpkin Payment.  Several standards are covered in this easy-reader booklet that reinforces coins as well as shapes. 

Students trace and write the coin word, the coin's value, plus the shape word.
They trace the shape and then draw it on the pumpkin; cutting and gluing the coin(s) to the matching numbered boxes.

Fruits & Vegetables ESL Vocabulary from Raki’s Rad Resources

Vocab Packets - Fruits & Vegetables - Free download - Help your ESL students understand key vocabulary words in English using this differentiated vocabulary packet - from Raki's Rad Resources.

Students who are learning English as a second language need access to lots of vocabulary that does not regularly come up in a classroom setting.  Food names are a part of this vocabulary, and knowing this vocabulary can increase reading comprehension and general English conversation skills.  Using my Fruits and Vegetables ESL Vocabulary Packet helped my students to build this vocabulary.  To use this vocabulary packet with your students, you can download it free from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
