Here is an unexpected resource: chapter 1 of an Algebra 1 text. You can use all or some of its contents to teach your Middle Schoolers all about algebraic expression, domain, function notation, linear equations, order of operations, input/output, ordered pairs, and variable expressions. This would be great for a substitute or newer teacher looking for reliable tools.
You scream, I scream! Young learners read this passage about ice cream flavors, then answer 13 questions about details from the reading. The questions address details from the text, vocabulary, and parts of speech.

Budding readers will relate to Allison McGhee's story Countdown to Kindergarten in which a young girl is worried about not being able to tie her shoes once she gets to school. This is a fun way to teach vocabulary in context, although there are only two words outlined here: allow and doomed. Kids raise their hands when they hear the words, which have been pre-taught. Prompt connections with other concepts using given comprehension questions for each term and the vocabulary graphic organizers are an excellent option for visual learners.
Explore vocabulary in context with emerging readers using Leo Lionni's whimsical story Matthew's Dream, which you can find on YouTube if you don't have it. Kids expand their word base as you pre-teach the terms (appear, bleak, embrace, emerge, immense, misery, museum, and portrait) before reading the text aloud. Help them utilize context clues by asking them to raise their hands when they hear a target word. There are comprehension questions for each term to encourage kids to make connections to outside concepts, and the graphic organizers are a great way to synthesize these words.
