This is a great activity to do with students for a better understanding of characteristics of the four seasons. This also gives them a chance to use arts and crafts to describe what they know about winter, spring, summer, and fall. Also, under each section the student could write descriptions of the seasons. Example: Winter- boots, snow, scarfs. by deena

Susans Free Comparing Monsters - an Activity for I Need My Monster There are a variety of great language skill building activities that can be done with any book you read in your classroom. On the way to understanding complete story elements and construction students need to be able to describe characters and settings and to compare and contrast two or more of each. I usually begin a discussion of comparing and contrasting by having students use two shirts they can see in the classroom at the time two students; anything they can visually reference and find familiar. We then apply the same skills to comparing the characters in the book. A great book for comparing and contrasting is I Need My Monster by Amanda NollandHoward McWilliam I created this comparison chart for a student of mine. I hope you find it helpful too. Just drag it to your desktop and print. Have fun and Keep on Talking! Find me at Kidz Learn Language by graciela

Free! Figurative language anchor word wall cards. Hyperbole, personification, alliteration, metaphor, simile, idioms, & more. For a quick, spontaneous ELA writing activity, I like to attach a few of these to the white board, give the students post-its, an instruct them to write an example of each and stick it on the board near the corresponding poster. If time permits, after every student has at least one on the board, they go get a random one and evaluate it. by Meri Pera
