FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “The No-Grading Essay: a FREE Method for English Teachers to Take Less Home!”

by Secondary Sara
6th - 12th Grade


Tired of taking home piles of essays and rubrics? There is another way…

Borrow these two FREE plans that are low-homework for the students and low-grading for you!

One is a heavy-teaching version with time for many skill lessons embedded (great for middle school/early high school); the second is a faster version that includes timed in-class writing that students will revise (awesome for older students).

This document was partially born from a buyer’s request for a CALENDAR to see how all of my essay writing materials fit together, so the two plans include hyperlinks to some of my store's other lessons as well.

Download the PDF to find out if an informal writer’s workshop method can empower you to “grade” verbally in live writer’s conferences INSTEAD of writing comments alone on your couch (that students might not read anyway!)

This plan may not work for everyone, but I hope that it gives you inspiration for some ways to sequence your essays. :-)

Fighting Teacher Burnout alongside you,
Secondary Sara

FREE MATH LESSON - “Freebie Back to School Problem Solving”

by Learning Harbor Resources for Teachers
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade


This problem solving freebie contains two sets of 8 cards each. There is one problem on each card. The sets are differentiated by the difficulty of the numbers used in the problems. Set one contains problems working with numbers 1 – 10. Set two contains problems working with numbers in the teens and twenties. Sets are marked for easy sorting with a symbol in the upper left had corner of the card.
These work well with whole group or small group lessons, in math centers or in math stations. Because they are differentiated, they are great for RTI or for challenging higher achievers. They can easily be used with a document camera for whole class instruction.
To prepare the game, print, laminate if desired, and cut apart the cards.

Wednesday Weekly 5 Under $5 - 7/19/17

Every week I put together a list of 5 great products from members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative (TBOTEMC) with the requirement that each product must be less than $5.  With a variety of subjects and a wide range of grades, there just might be something that you can use, so continue to read below and see!

In addition, if you're a seller on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) that would like to join the Wednesday Weekly 5 Under $5 team, click here to get more information about joining TBOTEMC.  Feel free to e-mail me with any questions, as I'd be happy to help in any way possible.


By It's a Teacher Thing 
All Subject Areas/Back to School; Grade 4


Back to School Brochures for fourth grade will help you get to know your students. Perfect for the first few days of school and for Back-to-School Night, the brochure is both informative and reflective. Easy-to-use and great for your sub tub. Modified versions included to suit individual needs. Each modified page has larger writing spaces and reduced tasks. Extra bonus brochure is included with four pages to expand your options! 


By Mentoring in the Middle
ELA; Grades 4-8


Fun and engaging word search activity and crossword puzzle! What students don't like these? The word search can be used as a pre-reading activity before you begin reading The War that Saved My Life. Prepare students for names, words, and locations they’ll see regularly in the book, or you may have students do it as a fun activity at any point as they’re reading. It could also be used as a review before a test on the book. The crossword puzzle uses 20 of the vocabulary words found in my Novel Study. This is a fun stand-alone or review for important vocabulary. Key is provided!


By The Teacher Down the Hall
Math; Grades 4-5/6


35 Bingo Cards included! Project the slide and your students will solve for: "What time did it begin?", "What time did it finish?", and "How long did it last?" Students will beg to play, and while playing they'll do more math operations in this simple game than they would on any worksheet. Instructions for Bingo included. After playing Bingo once a few days later, you can reviewed again by racing to find answers. Both ways are a great review of Elapsed Time!


Back to School Addition Math Riddles - $2.00
By Snyder Classroom
Math/Back to School; Grades 1-4


Need a fun way to practice addition as school begins? Engage your students with these Back to School addition math riddles worksheets! The creator began creating math riddles to make math more fun in her own classroom. Having used these in her own room, the item's seller loves hearing her students giggle as they solve the riddle at the end of the worksheet. Students solve addition problems, each problem has a letter assigned to it and the letters help to solve the riddle. It is a great way to combine fun and learning! Make addition FUN! 


By A Teacher's Teacher
ELA; Grades 5-10


The only person who might end up loving this Classroom Scrabble game more than your students will be you!  The creator of this product has been using a classroom scrabble game in his room for about the last 8 or 9 years, and it’s always a student favorite. In fact, there are still former students who become upperclassmen that will see the game on the floor and ask for passes to get out of their class that bell just to play a word-building educational game! I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty cool!

As always, I encourage comments below and any ideas or suggestions by tweeting me @ATeachersTeach or contacting me via e-mail.
