Product Description
Don’t stress about the first week of school with this collection of my favorite lesson plans for introducing units and reviewing skills! The lessons combine authenticity, movement, competition, and collaboration to make sure your students stay engaged and build a positive classroom culture in the first week. And, it’s all bundled here for big value!

This bundle includes the following five listings (listed in the order I’d teach them the first week). More details and thumbnails available on each listing!

Tone and Voice Introduction or Review Activity

Get students up and moving around the room while they identify tone words for sentences and write their own sentences using tone words. This resource gives students the background knowledge they need in prior to discovering how authors use tone, voice, and diction to achieve their purpose.

This resource includes the following:
Google slides presentation with definitions as well as explanations for the activity
A list of tone sentences to use for the activity (enough for one for every student)
5 point review quiz to keep students accountable (plus Key).

Poetic Devices Hook or Review Activity

Get students up and moving around the room while they match 16 poetic devices with their examples in a collaborative whole class activity. Students work in pairs to research their device and then connect them with the BEST example displayed in the room.

This resource includes the following:
Google slides presentation with student explanation for the activity
Teacher instructions with devices, definitions, and examples

“Evidence Bags” Textual Support Hook or Review Lesson

Get students up and engaged in friendly controversy as they match evidence with the reason it best supports. This lesson uses research about the benefits and drawbacks of homework to have students work backwards to figure out how evidence connects to reasons, and eventually determine the overall claim.

This 21 page resource includes the following:
Materials list
Printing, copying, and set-up instructions
Class procedure
6 reasons and 12 pieces of evidence, ready for print
Teacher key

Argument Organizer with Authentic Court Motion and Vocabulary

The text in this resource is a REAL court motion for provisional order written by a lawyer in the state of Indiana. The graphic organizer that accompanies this text has been my most successful way of analyzing argumentation.

This assessment includes the following:
Full court motion
Argument Graphic Organizer and KEY
Vocabulary worksheet and KEY

TV Character Analysis Hook or Review Activity with Bingo!

My students love to watch television instead of doing their homework, so I decided to make television their homework. Get students up and talking about characters from their favorite television shows! Students start by analyzing how a character of their choice thinks, feels, says, and acts, and then sharing their findings with their classmates in a fun BINGO activity.

This resource includes the following:
Graphic organizer: Thinks, Says, Feels, Does Chart
Detailed BINGO chart for class activity
Teacher lesson plan/instructions

Alternatively, you could choose to revisit these lessons throughout the year. Just add them in when you want to review the content or give a break. I’ve used many of these activities for administrator evaluations and they work very well!
