FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON - “1st Day of School Social Studies Interest Survey”

by Erin Schneider
6th - 9th Grade

This is a one page interest survey for a middle school social studies classroom. The interest survey asks students about themselves, strengths, weaknesses, and plans for the future. The bottom of the handout asks students to come up with goals for the school year.

I typically give this interest survey the first day of school and keep it in my desk all year long. I find myself accessing these surveys often. On the last day of school I hand them back to the students, so they can enjoy seeing how much they've changed. I hope your students appreciate filling them out and receiving them back as much as mine do.

LANGUAGE ARTS - "BINGO with Vowel Digraph & Diphthong Words"

by Reading on Strawberry Lane 

Grades 1-3

This fun game of BINGO gives students practice differentiating between vowel digraphs and vowel diphthong syllables. A vowel digraph is a syllable that has two vowels glued together whose sound will say one of the vowel sounds. A vowel diphthong is two vowels glued together or one vowel glued to the left of the letter -w whose sound will be unique to the combination of the two letters. After playing a few times, the students will catch on to these two different syllable types and will begin to quickly identify them and their sounds. There are two different bingo cards for the students, and there are 96 word cards--48 vowel digraph words and 48 vowel diphthong words.

LANGUAGE ARTS - "Short Vowel Picture Sorts"

by Reading on Strawberry Lane 

Grades K-2

These fun printables give students the opportunity to sort the short vowel sounds using pictures. Students can first color the pictures, then cut the pictures and paste them into the correct vowel frame. These are great for emerging readers! And they are great to place in literacy stations.


I relaxed for several days in an ashram in India. I scaled Mt. Everest in a dangerous ascent. I explored declining sea life on faded reefs and in the depths of the ocean. I also gazed at famous paintings and scultpures in the Vatican, and I spent an entire week on African safari. I visited with the inventors of the airplane, the Wright brothers. WOW! I did quite a lot! How did I do it?
By reading books, of course!
Some teachers begin the school year by assigning a composition about summer vacation. The task is common because many students have gone someplace, if only for a day, and it is a fairly easy topic for student writing.  Most of my students, however, had not gone anywhere. I used these travel statements as a way to introduce the first essay of the year, and as another way to encourage children to read. They could write about places they actually visited, places they might enjoy visiting by browsing through books from the library, or about books they did read during the summer months. I brought my own books into class for display.
I actually had fun spending a few minutes telling them about books that I had enjoyed reading. Little did they know that I was a model for their own one-minute oral book reports to come later in the school year. Research indicates that the most effective motivation for independent reading is when students give short, enthusiastic book reports to their peers.
Many students have busy parents who rarely read, so they need role models who DO read and enjoy it! To become good readers, children, in their own free reading time, must practice the skills we are teaching them.
