In this narrative writing lesson, students discuss what the purpose of postcards are and any personal experiences they have had with writing a postcard. Young scholars observe the instructor write a model postcard and decide on a city from which to write a mock postcard.
Students demonstrate the ability to write money amounts, and count bills and coins. In this money worksheet, students access a web site and watch a video as they learn about the Denver Mint and how much coins are worth. They listen to Amy Axelrod's Pig Will Be Pigs.
Use pictures and manipulatives to develop vocabulary with your beginning language learners. This plan can be used with foreign language learners (although you'll have to provide the vocabulary), English language learners, or a young language arts class. They practice describing weather by examining different items related to weather such as a coat, umbrella, and scarf, and then practice telling their classmates what the weather is like in the target language. The class members create a weather mini-book including drawings of the different seasons and weather activities.
Examine factors that influence your choice about physical activity. In this physical activity lesson plan, students recognize how physical activity and good health go together. Students participate in a survey about physical activity and how it is related to good health.
In this verb identification activity, students match the eighteen pictures that illustrate the action verb. Students complete eighteen fill-in sentences using action verbs.
In this nouns worksheet, learners read 45 sentences and determine which nouns name a person, place and/or thing, Students read an additional 15 sentences, underline each noun in each one and then decide whether each one is a person, place and/or thing. Learners write their choices on the lines provided.
Simple momentum computations and more complex collision computations can be found on these two worksheets. All of them can be answered by choosing from five possibilities. The first worksheet contains nine problems to solve, while the second contains five. An answer key is provided. You could assign the first part as homework and then give the shorter second part as a quiz.
Rhyming is fun and it helps build phonological awareness that is key in early reading. Learners use a pocket chart and a set of 40 cards that make 20 rhyming sets to practice recognizing rhyming words. Peer one picks a card from a bag and peer two finds its match on the pocket chart. They take turns until all the cards are with their rhyming partner.
A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the associated equations. Finally, free fall through fluid friction concepts. Toward the end of the presentation, several slides display practice problems for viewers to try. The formatting of these slides is less-than-perfect, but easily edited so that the whole problem is visible.
