Included In Your Purchase (Click Titles For More Information):
TURN OF PHRASE TUESDAY: IDIOM OF THE WEEK
Idioms are part of everyday speech, yet we assume that our students know what they mean! This resource allows teachers to introduce one idiom per week for 40 weeks with a definition and an example.
WEIRD FACT WEDNESDAY
This resource is an excellent way to get your students' attention right away. Each of the 100 slides includes an interesting random fact that, in my experience, students will be talking about in the halls after class! The facts also often get students asking "why?" which prompts further research or discussion.
THINKING THURSDAY: WORD PUZZLES
• A Powerpoint Presentation that includes 91 word puzzles that you can do with a class (More than you need for bell ringers to last the year!)
• Printable Cards that you can have in your class for student use.
• Word Puzzle Challenge: A 1 page document where students can write down their answers to the puzzles (and a page of answers) You can show students the answers as they go, or have them try to find ALL of the answers before you let them check.
FUNNY FRIDAY: JOKE OF THE WEEK
Bring some laughter into your classroom once a week with these 40 hilarious jokes that your students will love. The eye-catching Powerpoint presentation has lots of bright images and is 100% ready to use - no prep required!
