Parts of Speech Grammargories

Choose a themed list. Choose a letter. Start the timer. It's time for Grammargories!

Inspired by the game Scattergories, students try to beat the clock as they complete themed lists with words representing different parts of speech, and every answer must begin with the same letter.

This engaging and challenging activity is a student favorite!

Beginning Persuasive Writing: Collecting Evidence to Support an Opinion

Once when I was teaching the difference between fact and opinion, a student said, "My brother is mean."  I tried to explain that what the student said was an opinion, and she started backing up her statement with evidence.  Collecting evidence to support an opinion wasn't on the lesson plan, but I went with it.

Since that day, I have made my plan more formal and created the graphic organizer shown below.  To download this graphic organizer, please visit this post at Artistry of Education.

3D Valentine's Day Heart Craft

Here's a quick, easy and fun 3D heart that's perfect for all sorts of valentine activities.

It's super-simple to make a heart-shaped link.  PK kiddos can count and show an AB-AB or ABC-ABC color pattern for their valentine paper chain.

Older students can write a spelling or sight word on each link.  Math equations work too.  Just a little something different for party day.

Use the paper chain as a writing prompt, and have students write a "Happy Valentine's Day" message on the links to give to someone.

You can also make a lovely heart bouquet for mom. (Poke into the top of an upside down Dixie cup).

Teachers can make the heart paper chain to keep track of how many days are left 'til Valentine's Day or the end of February!

I've also included owl, pencil-holder valentine cards  that you can quickly make for your students. "For a sharp student!"

Simply insert the pencil into the slits on the valentine heart & you're all set with an inexpensive surprise.  The Dollar Store sells a pack of 20 valentine pencils too.

For a bit more pizzazz, I used a glue dot to top off the pencil with one of the paper hearts.
My students tell me that a pencil topper makes writing more fun!  Win-win.
