Get ready to teach a unit about community workers that uses Common Core literacy standards as a way to connect language arts and social studies. The packet is printable and contains teaching strategies, scripted activities, and performance tasks for reading and writing with informational texts. Children will learn about and discuss the role community workers play in their everyday lives, as well as explore the use of textual evidence in their writing and their speaking. Both the reader's and writer's workshops are broken down into comprehensive tasks by day. Worksheets, graphic organizers, web links, rubric, and standard rationale are all included.
Here is a terrific lesson plan on telling time designed for 2nd graders. Learners practice how to tell time to the nearest five minutes. They learn how many seconds are in a minute, a how many minutes are in an hour, and how many hours are in a day. All of this knowledge gets put to use by playing online games on the computer, putting together flip books that are about telling time, and doing some old fashioned drill and practice. A fabulous all-around lesson that covers this important topic quite well.
Building Background Knowledge: Why Do Workers Strike? (Chapter 11: "Los Aguacates/Avocados")
Make connections between Esperanza Rising and human rights with the activities outlined here. The instructional activity starts out with a brief quiz and review of the novel. After that, pupils circulate and share quote strips that you give to them. The goal is to match quotes from the novel with quotes about human rights. Class members will also learn what a strike is and connect that knowledge to the novel by completing a note-catcher and discussing the text. All materials are included in an engaging Common Core designed instructional activity.

Match the Shapes
Match the shapes! There are multiple potential objectives here as young scholars match shapes using different colored lines. There are four starter shapes and learners draw lines connecting them to matching shapes from a larger group. They practice with circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles. There is an added challenge in that the matching shapes are not identical to the starter shapes (i.e. triangles with different length sides).
Oh, Baby! What Baby Animal Is That?
Parents and children tend to look alike, but they are also very different. Little learners examine the similarities and differences found in various adult/infant animal pairs. They discuss what full-grown and infant animals look like, and then play a matching game where they match adult animals to their babies. After the game, youngsters draw and/or write a sentence describing what they've learned.
Elements and Principles in Drawing
