Resource Details

Word Games

Want to build your class' vocabulary through a fun learning game? In this activity learners explore new words and their meanings and usages using Word Attack 3 computer software. They unscramble words, develop vocabulary words, navigate word mazes, and cumulate records of their work to evaluate their individual progress.

High Five Blend and Word Family Game

Practice using word blends and learning about word families by participating in a class game. Learners will collaborate as teams in a game by throwing beanbags onto a shower curtain with word blends on it. They will say the sound their bean bag lands on, identify a word with the sound, and use the word in a sentence. Great learning fun!

Code Calling - Working Out New Words

Young readers practice deciphering new words by using context clues and grammatical rules. The online activity embedded in the plan is especially engaging, and should be enjoyable for all pupils who work through it. A good printable worksheet is also present in the plan that can be used as a homework assignment, or as in-class assessment. The lesson is incredibly thorough and well-designed. Definitely worth a look for you 1st grade teachers!

Real-life Word Problems, Part 5

Bring these four word problems to your second grade class to reinforce addition, subtraction, and money math. The problems provide space to write out the proper equations, as well as separate areas to fill in the answers. Use these problems as a quiz or group activity to assess problem-solving skills!

Tricky Word Problems - Choosing the Operation

Decipher the equations in these addition and subtraction word problems. Two examples at the top of the page guide second graders as they solve the rest of the problems. There is no space to write out the equation, but there is a place to write out the answer. Assign the activity to groups or during math centers.

Question words, question marks

Practice the five W's and question marks with a fun grammar worksheet. After copying the words who, what, where, when, why, and how, kindergartners fill the words into various questions. For extra practice, have kids come up with their own questions to ask each other.

Shortened Words

Shorten names and words with different activities. Nicknames, acronyms, and shortened words (fridge instead of refrigerator, for example) are ways for third graders to build their vocabulary and differentiate between formal and informal language. A great homework assignment or group activity.

Introduction to the Five Themes of Geography

A rap, a song, an activity, a presentation, and teaching notes are yours for the taking! Teaching the five themes of geography will be a snap with a handy resource like this one. Learners will be introduced to the importance of understanding geography through movement, people, locations, places, and regions by engaging in two fun small group activities. Everything needed is embedded or easily downloadable.

Play on Words Design

Young scholars create a design of an image that combines two words to create an unusual visualization. They improve their drawing skills by completing a detailed, colored pencil rendering of the "Play on Words" they design. Using technology and its Photoshop program, they manipulate the colored pencil drawings and design a creative lettering for their play title.

Word Problems

Here is a very nice resource that presents 12 math word problems suitable for third and fourth graders. All four of the basic operations are used in these one-step problems. An answer key is provided on page two. This would make a very good in-class assessment, or homework assignment.
