Nod your head yes if this scenario sounds familiar: 8:00. Late bell rings in ten minutes. Drool is running down your chin. Your gut is churning from last nightÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s questionable choices. Four miles away from school. Traffic is crazy. There is no WAY youÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re going to get to school on time, let alone have time to make copies.
You check your reflection in the rear view mirrorÃ¢ï¿½Â¦.. HOLY CRAP! ItÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s like Rocky Horror Show gone a teaching! A little voice in your head reminds you, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½You know you have nothing planned for today!Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ NOOOOOOOOOO!
Whether alcohol induced or not, we have all been in that situation; itÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s ok to admit it. What to do when you have nothing to do? This book is divided into two sections that hopefully will help in any unplanned and/or desperate situation. These ideas work best in a language arts classroom 4th to 10th grade but are open enough that with a little adaptations, they can fit easily with any content curriculum.
1. Activities for those last 10 minutes that you didnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t quite plan for.
2. 30 minute lessons that help you in a crunch.
Although every strategy research based this most practical source is teacher friendly in that you donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t have to wade through a bunch of scholarly mish mash to get to what you really want to get to. The pages are black and white copy friendly and youÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ll note that most of the blacklines are half paged so you can save that ever precious paper.
You will receive a 56 page book filled with blacklines and lessons. It is bound for easy copying.
