Teachers Pay Teachers is having a Back to School Sale August 4-5th! So, we’ve rounded up some of our best All Year Products.
Tara, Science in the City
Pack of 50 Exit Tickets (Formative Assessment): I have found it very important in my class to have closure, and to have students reflect on what they learned, or wrap up in some way. This package provides a variety of ways to do that on a regular basis. You choose what is best suited to your lesson that day! This pack includes fifty (50) exit tickets. The first 40 of these can be used for most subjects and many grades. The last 10 are best suited to science.
These include drawings, self-assessment, vocabulary, etc.
Kimberly, OC Beach Teacher:
Bundle: Paired Passages and Common Core Writing Tasks (14 Texts): Challenge your students to think critically with this bundle including ALL of my popular Paired Passages. These lessons require students to synthesize their reading and identify central ideas across texts. Each lessons guides them through close readings of texts that vary by genre, time period, and author; then the pre, during, and post-reading strategies help them construct connections between the texts. Each lesson culminates in a writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype.
Research Skills Bundle: Now, more than ever, it’s important that our kids learn to research properly. In this cut-and-paste world, they can form some terrible habits. This package of lessons will help you teach your students how to paraphrase and use quotations properly. Then you can review with task cards and leave them with an easy-to-use guidebook.
The Raven Tweets: #Nevermore! A fun twist on the poem “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe. Students will translate the poem into Tweets! Does it change the meaning or mood of the poem? Includes reflection on how the format affected the poem. Great fun for the students and relates to their interests.
Lauralee,The Language Arts Classroom:
Eight Grade Grammar Bundle:The Eighth Grade Grammar Bundle contains practice and assessment for teaching grammar in eighth grade, or for reviewing skills that older grades need.
Michelle Brosseau, Mrs. Brosseau’s Binder:
Naming Compounds Spinner- A Fun Chemical Nomenclature Review: This is my favorite! Students can have a tough time learning and remembering how to name chemical compounds. Is it ionic or covalent? Does the metal have multiple ionic charges? You won’t have to answer these questions anymore because the spinner does the work for you! Students answer a few questions and then are given instructions and examples to guide them in naming chemical compounds. BONUS: It looks like Pac-Man!
Essay Writing Mega Bundle: This HUGE bundle of essay writing materials includes 4 full units, 6 separate writing lessons, and 3 additional tools for the writing process: brainstorming, collecting text evidence, and revision. This timesaver is 144 pages (or 7 weeks) of materials for middle school or early high school, especially for any class in need of foundational basics or review.
Geometry Stations Maze Activity Bundle: In a “stations maze”, each station has one multiple-choice question. The answer to each station directs students to the next station they should visit. The students keep track of the order that they visit the stations and I only check the order of the stations.
Stations mazes are great because they get students up and moving around the room. They also encourage students to check their work carefully since an incorrect answer will eventually send them back to a problem they have already solved. Successfully completing the maze requires students to slow down and check their work.
Life Sciene & ELA Non-Fiction Reading and INB Activities: BEES for CCSS and NGSS: This package includes activities for an interdisciplinary approach to science and ELA that’s all about BEES.
Included you’ll find a selection of FIVE differentiated non-fiction reading passages and creative activities for students.
I use these cross-curricular materials with my 9th and 10th grade students, and select from the differentiated materials for my
Special Ed students. Many of the pages would be even appropriate
for strong middle school students.
