FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Transportation Opinion Writing FREEBIE”

by Sherry Clements
Pre-Kindergarten - 2nd Grade


The topic for this opinion writing resource is "transportation (a plane or a car)." These opinion writing activities are great to put in a writing center for students to choose which pictures to use to give their opinions about or for a mini lesson on opinion writing. This resource includes one page with picture choices of a plane or a car). The page says “Which do you like better? Why?” then it has five blank lines for students to write on to tell why they think their choice is the best. Students love telling which item they like better. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they think their choice is better. Teachers can also use these writing activities as a whole class activity. Assigning these activities for a homework assignment can include parents in helping increase their child’s writing skills. However you choose to use these activities, I hope your students develop a love for writing.

THE VERSATILITY OF EDITABLE FLIPBOOKS

By Teach To Tell
Grades 3-6

Flipbooks are undeniably known for their versatility. They scaffold the structure of a piece of writing, be it a persuasive, narrative, biography or an informative report. Needless to say, they are also a handy visual tool, and look simply impressive.

They can be used for just about any subject or topic:

1.  Scaffolding the structural components of a writing genre.

2.  Helping students organize/organise their writing in an Informative Report.

Informative Writing Animal Report


3. Writing a Book Report.

Writing a book report: flipbook organizer


Interestingly, the templates other than scaffolding structural elements, also serve as a means of collating information in addition to drafting and editing.

Hispanic Americans Biography



Once students have edited their writing for accuracy then they can refer to their flipbook when publishing.

            Thanksgiving Flipbook: history and tradition    


 The templates also serve a dual purpose. Other than compiling them to create a flipbook, they can also be glued into an Interactive Notebook.



If creating a flipbook, the templates simply need to be stapled at the top.

Mother's Day Writing Poems

The interactive notebook requires gluing at the top tabs after arranging in descending order. The last template is glued down first, followed consecutively by the rest.

Planets of the Solar System Flipbook

Preparing the flipbook templates take a reasonable amount of effort, but the finished product is worth the time spent.

I have my students first cut out and assemble the templates to compile the flipbook. Then they work at their own pace researching and finishing each section. This will be their first draft.

Research on the planets of the solar system flipbook

Once all sections of the flipbook are completed, students use the checklists to self-edit and peer-edit.

                 


Finally, students publish their research on lined publishing sheets. They refer to the edited information collated in their flipbooks.

Once all students have completed their research flipbooks, they look truly impressive displayed on the bulletin board. Be ready to receive many compliments from others.

Christmas Around the World Flipbooks


Want to try the versatility of flipbooks by getting exclusive access to biography editable flipbooks on 20 notable women of history? These templates will help your students document their research and scaffold the writing of a biography. Checklists and teacher marking rubrics also included - perfect activity for your students to do during Women's History Month in March.

The following notable women in history are featured in these editable templates:
Helen Keller, Oprah Winfrey, Charlotte Bronte, Billie Jean King, Mother Teresa, Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth I, Princess Diana, Catherine Middleton, Amelia Earhart, Anne Frank, Florence Nightingale, Joan of Arc, Marie Antoinette, Malala Yousafzai, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Indira Gandhi, Cleopatra, Eva Peron, Catherine the Great and Frida Kahlo.

This three-passage text set is accompanied by an argumentative prompt regarding a topic in which many of your students will be interested: college sports. It's a great assignment to engage students and help them work on the skill of finding and citing information from the text provided, rather than relying on their own prior knowledge or feelings about the given topic. Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 5 pages long.

Following Directions Cut and Paste House Theme

by Kathy Babineau
Grades Pre-k - 3



Enjoy this versatile "House themed" Following Directions activity with your students. Use the black and white version of this product for a simple print and go activity for your students. Use the colorful version of this product to print, laminate and prepare file folder activities for your students. Directions for each page contain thematic vocabulary and spatial concept terms including "on top", "next to", "under", "left", "right", "close to" and more.
Contents and Directions
•10 house themed colorful picture scenes with small coordinating pictures and directions. (backyard, bathroom, bedroom, dining room, doghouse, front yard, kitchen, laundry room, living room, school/play room)
•Black and white matching pages provided for an easy print and go option.
To use the black and white version of this product, simply print the picture scene pages and corresponding picture/direction pages and go. Students can work independently cut apart pictures, read directions and glue on corresponding picture scenes. Dashed lines are provided, but I find it is helpful to cut in closer to smaller pictures for better placement on the paper. Provide assistance as needed with reading and/or cutting for students who may need it.
To use the colorful version of this product, simply print the picture scene pages and corresponding picture/directions pages and go just as instructed above for the black and white pages. Then laminate and cut apart small pictures and directions and assemble on file folders using Velcro, or attach using rings, or keep pieces loose and organized in envelopes.
