Synonym Garden- Paint chips can be used for so many things, but it seems that they are most often use to show students about synonyms. This activity encourages students to find synonyms to words and fill up their paint chip. This would be an excellent way to work in new vocabulary for writng time, while allowing students to help fill up the "walls that teach." by glenna

Intro to pastels for kids: blending with oil pastels. I teach blending, but have never offered an activity sheet to practice like this... It make be very useful for differentiation, to help students that may otherwise struggle with understanding blending. It could also act as a means of assessment to gauge their understanding. by susanna

This is a 2nd grade work job I created titled "Government Tree". This workjob could be used when talking about the branches of government. This workjob could also be used when discussing political ideas and traditions important to the development of the United States.  The students would be able to use this in their free time or when they have finished their work early. The students may either work individually or with a partner to complete this activity. IL 14.F.1 by jaclyn

I never knew you could be so disappointed in another human being. Just when you get to the point where there's not much else to be disappointed about in someone then bam they do something else to show there is really no end to that person's failure as a human. You are truly a despicable failure at everything you do. Will this ever cease to amaze me. Why am I surprised? Because I thought maybe there was a speck of that person you used to be or at least what we thought you were but no. Where did y by Mrspacman2000
