This is for all of my teacher friends who love Melonheadz Star Wars characters as much as I do!
Two files are included in this Parent-Teacher Conference Pack. One is loaded with Print-n-Use forms. The other is a PowerPoint file with editable forms. This pack also has lots of options for coordinating with parents as well as creating progress reports that work for you and your students/parents.
Here is peek at what is included:
This form you would send home and have your students’ parents give you 3 dates/times that they are available. With the other set of forms (see below) you would set a time/day for each parent to meet with you (based on the sign-up sheet). They would return the bottom half of the form to you with their reply.
Use this next set of forms to find out what your students’ parents concerns are, and what your students think about their own progress.
And now, here are the options for gathering all of your data and generating a progress report or student summary. Choose the one that works for you and your students/parents.
Now, you are ready to hold your conferences! Be sure to have this sign-in sheet printed and some Padawan Love Notes ready for the parents to leave their children.
This set will be on sale through Friday! Hope you love it!
A little digital something for your Second graders–TOTALLY TECHIE TRIGRAPHS! These are perfect for your Google Classroom, or homeschool. The files in this set will run on any computer that has access to Google Slides or PowerPoint.
Three activities are included in this set:
In this first activity your students will sort SCR- and SHR-; SHR- and THR-; SCR- and THR- words. The words are included on the picture sorting cards. Simply click on the word card; drag and drop it next to its beginning blend.
Your students will drag and drop the right beginning trigraph for each picture. Not all beginning blends will be used.
A printable word list included for this activity. Your students will type the word in the blank to complete each sentence. Then they will drag n’drop the picture that matches the sentence.
The text boxes in this activity are designed to use the KG What the Teacher Wants font. Click on the link to download your free copy. You will need to install it on your classroom’s shared drive, or on the computer that will run these files.
Every file in this set has movable pieces (only the pieces that need to move actually can be moved), so once a student has completed an activity and you have checked their work, close the file by clicking “DO NOT SAVE.” That way the pieces they moved will go back to their starting positions and the program will be ready for your next student.
You’ll start with these fun teaching tools–the open road and OPEN SYLLABLES:The LONG measuring tape remind us that these vowels are LONG. But, as we “go” along the road, we might run into a barrier–a CONSONANT barrel:
The road is CLOSED and our vowel is now closed in by a consonant. The short measuring tape reminds us that the vowel’s sound is now SHORT.
After this demonstration with real and nonsense words, your students are ready to change their open-syllable cars to closed syllables with various consonant barriers. There is a recording sheet included for this activity.
Your students will also sort open and closed syllables with this activity:
A separate Open or Closed worksheet will help you asses your students’ ability to identify these syllable types.
Did you notice that all of your students’ syllable manipulatives, sorting mats and instruction cards fit neatly in an IRIS container? I love ’em, too!
Grab this helpful simple syllables pack today and tomorrow for HALF OFF! More syllable sets are in the works, so check back with me soon! Have a great weekend!
The perfect addition to your Star Wars-themed classroom—a lightsaber number line! These come in Black Galaxy and Silver. They are 3″ tall (the hilt is 4″ tall by 13.5″ long). You can add your favorite paper behind the blade for a “glowing” effect.
These number lines can grow as your students practice and master each group of tens. A lightsaber tip for each of the 10s is included in the set.
We had some fun this week celebrating sping and looking forward to Easter. My kids love it when we celebrate with a photo booth (Krista’s props make them especially fun) and I love it when we work on their writing skills :). So, I put together some fun spring writing activities that you can use as crafts, as a display, or in a photo booth like we did.
1. Our Easter is Filled With—Why is Easter special? How do you celebrate it? Your students will write and draw about their Easter traditions using this brainstorming writing prompt. They will put each idea on a separate egg and then place it into their Easter basket.
2. In the Spring (Five Senses)—Using their five senses and descriptive words, your students will write about spring. Their responses can then be used to write a spring cinquain. Four colors of flowers are included.
3. Spring Cinquain—Your students will use the descriptive phrases and action words they came up with for “In the Spring” to write a Cinquain (a short, unrhymed 5 line poem of 22 syllables). Cinquain poster and instructions are included.
4. Rain is a Blessing—Your students will ponder HOW (what if it did not rain), WHY, and to WHOM rain is a blessing in this photo booth writing craft. This also a fun writing craft to use after discussing the water cycle.
Grab this set of PHOTO BOOTH WRITING PROMPTS for half-off today only!
1. NOW I KNOW–to celebrate that they are 100 days smarter, your students will write 5 things they have learned so far this year. Color and black and white are included.
2. I WISH I HAD 100–what do your students wish they had 100 of and why? Find out with this writing prompt! Three different color options as well as black and white are included.
3. WHEN I AM 100 I WILL HAVE–similar to a bucket list, your students will list the places they hope to have gone, things they hope to have seen and accomplished by the time they are 100. Two skin tone options and black and white are included.
As shown in the product photos, we used our WRITING PROMPTS with Creative Clips’ Photo Booth Props and had a lot of fun with them! You can use your own additional props, or grab Krista’s here.
