FREE MISC. LESSON - “Counselor - GRIEF Small Group Ideas”

by The Counseling Teacher
PreKindergarten - 6th Grade

I followed this format for a Small Group for Grief. The children really loved it and were very eager to come to group and participate. The children were able to express their thoughts through painting and creating one of a kind pieces of art in honor of their missing loved ones. The children especially enjoyed the balloon release activity and they all wanted to keep a piece of the string in their memory boxes.

FREE MISC. LESSON - “New Year’s Resolution Diary: A Balanced Approach”

by Leah Cleary
Kindergarten - 12th Grade

This activity encourages students to analyze resolutions from New Year’s past and present, create a diary with foldables, and create their own balanced resolutions for the New Year. They will create one resolution for their character, one to help others, one for school, and one just for themselves.

The beginning of the year is the perfect time to assess goals and to focus on the future. It’s important to help students understand that New Year’s Resolutions haven’t always been about losing weight and dressing better—and they need not always be.

Math Lesson - "Common Core Math 3rd Grade Measurement (3.MD.7c, 3.MD.7d) Activities"

by Hilda Ratliff

Grade 3                                               Click here to preview.       


This product focuses on composite areas and discovering the distributive property of multiplication over addition related to the area of a rectangle. In both activities students will learn that area is additive.

Detailed teacher notes provide a way to introduce the distributive property by the teacher modeling rectangles using square tiles. Students will complete a handout using tiles and/or using the grids provided. They will discover that       a x (b+c) = a x b + a x c as they examine areas of various rectangles.

The second activity deals with composite areas. Students will decide how to divide the composite figure into rectangles and then find the sum of the areas of the rectangles. This will be the area of the composite figure. There is a real world application of finding the area of a composite figure included.

Language Arts - "Task Cards: Punctuation (Common Core Grades 3-6)"

By Christina L
Grades 3-6

These task cards are larger than normal (5-6 questions each) so students can work on just one card. More advanced students may complete more than one card. A "user friendly" method of displaying them is to laminate them, punch a hole in the corner and attach them with a binder ring.

• 12 Task Cards (5-6 questions each) + 12 Answer Keys
• Recording sheet to show completion of each card

Topics include:
• End Punctuation (Add a period, question mark or an exclamation point.)
• Commas (Rewrite the sentences below placing commas where they are needed.)
• Commas (Complete the sentences by listing at least 3 answers using commas.) 
• Commas - Addresses and Dates
• Commas (Answer each question in a complete sentence. Make sure to add commas in the correct spot.)
• Quotation Marks (Rewrite the sentences placing the quotation marks in the correct spot.) 
• Quotation Marks + Punctuation (Rewrite the sentences placing the quotation marks in the correct spot. Don’t forget to include commas and end punctuation, too.)
• Apostrophes (Write the words that need an apostrophe. Make sure to add the apostrophes where they are needed.)
• Possessive Nouns (Rewrite the sentences placing the quotation marks in the correct spot. Don’t forget to include commas and end punctuation, too.
• Apostrophes – Singular Possessives (Change each phrase below into a sentence with a possessive noun.)
• Apostrophes – Plural Possessives (Change each phrase below into a sentence with a possessive noun.) 

Great for literacy centers, the Daily Five, early finishers and small group intervention!
