Here they are....Fabulous Friday Freebies! I've included some of the best in reading, writing and arithmetic from my search this week. And, for all you readers out there that teach espanol (there is so much less out there for us than other content areas), I've included a Spanish game. Check 'em out...
Here is a packet that takes teachers through a process for teaching word problems, complete with student handouts and answer keys. The sample word problems are written for middle school students, but the process for teaching word problems is appropriate for any age.
Here is a writing lesson on using details and imagery to convey an idea. This is a lesson that could be incorporated into a creative writing lesson for students of any age.
This is a website with a bunch of lessons on teaching grammar. Note: I use the handouts on this site all the time with my high school students. I probably would not recommend this site for elementary school teachers.
This is a game I play with my Spanish students to get them talking. They love it. Recently I adapted the concept into a form of verbal dodge ball. Very easy to plan for and implement in a class learning a foreign language at any level.
Hope you enjoy!
