One of my biggest struggles when writing lesson plans for a guest teacher is how to make them meaningful, yet still have someone else be able to do the activity with my students. I agree, this would be perfect for that! I'm so glad you were able to use it!
Yay! Glad I could help! Be sure to check out Morning Meeting Greetings I, too, as it has a totally different set of greetings! I'm also working on activities for morning meetings as well! Thanks for leaving feedback!
Thanks, Deanna! The two things I love most about this activity is 1-it's fairly easy for students of any age to cut out the pieces and 2-not only do they work with contractions, but they step it up by adding the cloud with the sentence using their contraction. Happy flying :D
Thank YOU for the feedback! I use these in my own classroom and find them so helpful! If you send your email address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll send you the freebie as my thanks for leaving feedback!
That is AWESOME! Way to rock it! I bet the assistant superintendent was very impressed with your desire/willingness to go above and beyond finding resources that work well for your students! Congratulations! It's always a nice feeling when you are observed and you know you're at your best!
Thanks so much for the feedback! Differentiation can be difficult, but I find this to be one way to make it a lot easier! Another way I use the different levels of completed writing is when a student is absent - I give them one that is filled out.
So glad you found it helpful! With today's kids, they all need a little something different, and this is an easy way to provide that! When kids are absent, I typically just print them off one that is completely filled out :D Thanks for the feedback!
I teach fifth grade, and I've taught my students the procedure that either their homework gets turned into the tray or one of these notices gets turned in. No more standing in line to tell me they didn't do their homework (which incidentally, by the time it's their turn to tell me that, they probably could have completed their homework if they had just sat down and done it instead of waiting in the line that never seems to end!)
I am follower number 7. Nice laid out homework form. Thanks for the freebie. Very nice work. I will use this in my class. I am new to this TeacherspayTeachers so if you have any tips or advice for me that would be great. you can visit me at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Geis19 if you wish. Thanks.
My advice would be to look at other successful sellers and see what they are doing! Also, have a good assortment of digital paper. It really dresses your product up! I wait until Sassy Designs goes on sale, and buy there paper. I love the assortment, and their sale prices are great!
Thanks for the feedback and good luck! I'm headed over to check out your store now!
So glad that you found it useful! It's really nice to know that the hard work you put into a project not only benefits your own students, but students across the country (and world in some cases)! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
