I love to create things for my students! Hopefully, you can find something usable for your classroom, too!
Starting a unit on expository text and need something to get started? This is just for you!
This packet covers 12 common text features that readers use to help navigate through expository texts.
Each text feature is listed and defined. Space is left beneath each definition for the teacher to include their own examples of the features from texts the class is reading together, or students can create their own examples of the features.
-Table of Contents
-Charts and Graphs
A quiz is included at the end so students can test their knowledge of text features!
I use this in my classroom like a mini-book. The pages can be stapled between two sheets of small construction paper or between one large sheet to create a book.
Need a fun and engaging way to review place value skills with your second, third, or fourth graders? These quiz-quiz-trade cards are the perfect solution!
This 150-card pack will provide you with choice and options so your students get the targeted practice they need. Students will practice place value skills, but also practice social skills at the same time! It can’t get much better than that!
This product includes five different thirty-card sets so you can choose the difficulty level your students need. Skills include:
-Determining the value of an underlined digit in a number
-Naming the place of an underlined digit in a number
-Converting a number from expanded form to standard form
*Please see the preview for example cards!
Set One- 2 digit numbers
Set Two- 3 digit numbers
Set Four- 4 digit numbers
Set Five- 5 digit numbers
Set Six- 6 digit numbers
When your students are ready, mix up cards from the different sets!
These cards could also be used as a self-checking activity for students or as task cards. They are versatile!
This document is SO versatile and great for not only focusing your instruction, but also communicating with students and parents about students' strengths and weaknesses.
Every language arts TEK from reading to speaking is included. The TEKS are clustered into subgroups and each subgroup is included in a table so you can easily cut and paste the sections you want to use into a separate document to make it perfectly aligned to whatever you are currently teaching!
I have broken down some of the TEKS that are especially meaty so it is easier to pinpoint exactly where problems arise. I broke them down in a way that made sense to me, but because it is editable, you can change it up to work for you!
After each TEK, boxes are provided to designate whether that particular expectation is developed or still developing. I also included a box for comments.
Again, because this document is editable, you can change up the headings or TEKS and make it work for you!!
This document can also be used as an end of year assessment profile to show parents what has been mastered during the course of the year and what the student will need to continue practicing.
I hope you find this useful for yourself and your students!
Please let me know if you have any questions about how to use this document!
