Great adjectives anchor chart idea. Would be a great idea for helping students think of adjectives. Create this chart with your class while having a hands on exploration of a pumpkin. You could even open up the pumpkin and have your students brainstorm words for the inside of the pumpkin too! (Picture only). by shauna

The 3 read protocol is a useful strategy to teach students to think about what word problems are asking. It is a close read of a math story. Students analyze what is happening in a word problem. This strategy is highly effective for ELLs because of the visuals and analysis. The students create their own questions, so it is very engaging! by suzanne

Rainbow Words are a fun and engaging way to practice SIGHT WORDS in the classroom and at home. Students work their way through each level (25 words per color of the rainbow). Using these color coded cards students can differentiate their own word work time by using their own cards with easy to prep word work activities. by therese

This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea! by melwayne

This activity is one of the most memorable of the year for many of my students! Words are hidden in the reflection ornaments. The process of "hiding" the words (Christmas/holiday/winter related) using reflections fascinates students.  The ornaments are fun to create, all designs are unique, they make wonderful decorations for the holidays, and students are practicing reflection and symmetry as they design their own ornament.

540 spelling words • 54 levels from grade 2 thru 5 • Testing pages • Teacher and Student Records • I created this packet because I wanted a way to include differentiated spelling in my curriculum without taking a lot of planning and instructional time. I give my students two packets at the beginning of the year; one for home and one for the classroom and I am done. Every student works through the packet at their own pace. $ #Spelling by marquita

Punch Cards! I plan on making my own for Taegan. So many possibilities for these! Stay In Bed, TV Tickets, Good Deeds, Chores, Reading, Potty Training, Good Grades, etc, etc! The kids fill the punch card(s) and get a reward. I think this is a fun alternative to a chart on the wall. There are some freebie punch cards on the web if you don't want to buy them or make your own. by diane.smith

Have the students make their writing "more colorful" by using paint strips. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Put the best word on the brightest part of the strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!" by Shopway2much

The readings talked a lot about children learning about culture through art. This is a project similar to one that I did when I was in the 5th grade. Children could research their own backgrounds and decorate a suitcase in personal ways to represent where they come from and what their own identity is. I think this would be a fun and educational project for a variety of grades! by ann
