FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Free AAC Training Video B is for Books and Boards”

by Susan Berkowitz
Kindergarten - 12th Grade

Low-tech options for AAC can include paper-based communication boards and books. In general, communication boards lack the robust vocabulary an AAC user needs; particularly when they offer no way to talk about something that is not specific to that board or activity.

This video is a quick explanation of how books and boards can work for your AAC users.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Spooky Sentence Sort”

by Katie Jones
2nd - 4th Grade

This product comes with 30 sentence task cards for students to sort by type of sentence: declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory. I've included 4 sorting mats, as well.

The sentences on the task cards are Halloween themed, which makes the activity more fun and exciting!

Everything in this product is in black and white, which will allow you to print on colored card stock to save on ink!

This would make for a great center activity! Student directions and a recording sheet are included.

This product would go great with my Types of Sentences - Double Sided Flip Book

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Chapter 1 Questions for Half Brother Novel”

by TeachingFSL
7th - 9th Grade

This four-page resource has questions for the beginning of the novel Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel. This FREE resource includes short answer questions for the Part 1 introduction, and questions in the format of true, false, or unknown for the first chapter of this Canadian novel.

I used the novel and these resources during my Language block as a read-aloud with my grade 7-8 class, with many English Language Learners. Students responded to the questions during and following the read aloud and then we discussed them as a way to ensure they understood the events of the story.

You could also collect the work, as a check-in for listening comprehension. Teachers may also wish to only check or assign certain questions, as there are 26 questions included in total covering the first 17 pages of this fiction book.

There is an answer key included as well.

Does this include the text/book/audiobook?
No, that would be an infringement of copyright. I own the book myself. At the time of making this resource available, I can share with you that this book was available through Audible, Apple Books, Google Play Books, Indigo/Chapters, Amazon, and several other sources. Feel free to send me a Q&A if you cannot locate it! (Availability does change over time!) Remember to also check any libraries that you have access to use, as IP laws (in my country, Canada) permit teachers to borrow a book or a recording from the library to use with students.

FREE MATH LESSON - “Halloween Math Division”

by Talented in Third
3rd - 5th Grade

Do your students need more practice with division? These Division Word Problems Task Cards have Hands-On Manipulatives. They are perfect for beginning division with built in differentiation!

There are nine different task cards, ready for your kids to solve each division equation with the pictures/manipulatives to match. This is a great way to practice CCSS with your students!!! Each task card comes with hands-on manipulatives to be able to solve the division word problem.

Included for each word problem:

- printable manipulatives for students to sort/group (enactive model)

- printable array cards for students to start seeing semi-formal groupings (iconic model)

- printable multiplication/division equations to see the connection between multiplication and division as well as begin connecting the formal equation with the process being taught (symbolic model)

The task cards focus on division with a focus on an understanding of division in a deep way. This is a fun way to get students thinking critically about the skills they have learned and allows your students who still need hands-on manipulatives to count out the materials. In addition, it should help your students practice the connections to multiplication as they develop arrays and equal groups to solve the task cards.

You can use these as assessments, in centers, as independent work, etc. Simply print the pages out and distribute to students as desired.


If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Check out my preview for a look at several of the task cards!
