Super Pack: STEVETECH
Buy these seven products and save, save, and save! Here are just a few items that I have in my store that have been for sale. I have great success with each of these items and you get a chance to buy them in one package to save money. Below are the names and descriptions of each of the products. Enjoy!
1. A fun behavior management “Ice Cubes”- Directions and printout
a. I used this management device for all of my students the first several years in teaching and it worked out great. Students use the Ice cubes (white sticky notes) to keep track of the positive things that they do throughout the day/ week (obviously the focus is on positive behavior). Students keep the ice cubes on a special measuring tool to see how cool they were that particular day. Kids really liked that they had the opportunity to earn positive rewards and keep track of them. Too often negative events are held in front of students the entire day.
Which would you prefer to be held over you? Of course, positive events! Give this wonderful management technique a try and see how cool your class can become.
2. Alexander Calder and his Mobiles: PowerPoint, entrance and exit tickets
a. This is a full art lesson on Alexander Calder, and his MOBILES. You will find that using PowerPoint with cross-curricular connections in both math and language arts makes this lesson a perfect one. This lesson was used for second grade, but there are applications for kindergarten and first grade.
b. This PowerPoint builds background, discusses mobiles, shapes (organic and geometric)! This is a wonderful lesson with plenty of visuals, entrance and exit tickets!
3. Answering Questions with Power Answer (ActiveInspire) 1st-5th Common Core
a. Thank you for your interest in this product. I had a lot of fun creating this ActiveInspire flipchart, and had even more fun teaching Power Answer to my students. I have used the entire flipchart and parts of the flipchart with grades 1st-5th grade. I have found this particular lesson very important, as it helps to teach students how to answer questions (nonfiction and fiction) properly. As you use this flipchart you will find that there are a ton of resources, and embedded tools that you can use to differentiate your lesson for your students. From embedded voice buttons, embedded videos, hyperlinks, and writing templates, you students will stay focused and interested all the way through the lesson.
c. There are seven slides on the flip chart, with two embedded videos, and several voice buttons. The pages are different colors to assist you and your students on navigation throughout the flipchart. The first question page instructs both the student and the teacher how to use Power Answer to answer questions. Additionally, there is a key word section that shows the audience what the key words would be in the first question.
4. Black History Month Research PowerPoint: a fun scavenger hunt
a. This PowerPoint is a nice research tool that I have used with my fourth and fifth graders. This PowerPoint has the students explore famous African Americans, early struggles, music, and the arts. This PowerPoint allows the students to learn and celebrate different aspects of African American culture. This PowerPoint is filled with interactive hyperlinks to aid in research.
5. Comic Strip Template 1-5 :)
a. I have used this template many times in class and the students love it. Often, I have the students create a comic strip of their short story, summary, or sequence of events. I feel that this comic strip Idea allows them to visualize what they plan on writing about before they start writing. After the students complete their comic strip;
b. I have the students work in pairs to look over the comic strip
c. Look for missing events
d. Check to see if the story line is clear
e. Check to see if the setting is clear
i. After their comic strip has been peer-reviewed, it is at this time the student would work on their actual writing piece. Of course this is just one way of many I have used this file.
h. *Uses multiple intelligences!
6. Design and Build Totem Poles (virtually or with crafts)- multimedia+ common core
a. Your students will love this lesson that integrates art, math (learning about angles, shapes, and patterns), and technology. This lesson comes full with hyperlinks to videos, text, and background information.
b. Additionally, this lesson has visuals, entrance and exit tickets. Your students will learn about a fascinating culture, their history and why they make totem poles while using math skills. This lesson was a huge success before the hyperlinks and videos were added. Be prepared to have the entire school talk about the totem poles that you students made in class/lab.
7. Design your own sneakers! (Multimedia, graphing, data, drawing, etc.!)
a. Wow! My students loved this lesson and yours will too. Students can use this PowerPoint to create their own popular sneaker based on real student data. Once they complete a survey, they will graph the data to see which color combination is most popular. This lesson is filled with hyperlinks to wonderful websites as well as different learning preferences.
b. C'mon... who doesn't want to create their own sneaker?
