Daily 5 For My 3rd Graders: Third Grade Rocks!!!

Daily 5 For My 3rd Graders: Third Grade Rocks!!! Word Work is where I made a lot of changes from last year. I focus on either spelling or vocabulary that we are currently working on in class as the Word Work. My team uses something that is called Spelling Tic-Tac-Toe, which is a free resource to us from StoryTown. I used theTic-Tac-Toe as my Word Work. What I did was cut apart the 8 different spelling practice tasks from the Tic-Tac-Toe, put them in bags with enough supplies for that specific activity, and the students would do them in their reading journals. This provided great spelling practice. This year I wanted the selection of their Word Work to be more anonymous, because I know some kids were just picking the easier, more enjoyable tasks last year. So... I went to my beloved Wal-Mart and bought 14 black pencil cases and a bin to hold them all. Each case now holds a specific task to be completed. Some of the tasks are from the Tic-Tac-Toe and some are ones I made up or have borrowed from others. This way all of the Word Work selections will be random and everyone has the same chance of pulling a super fun activity or a so-so fun activity. Before we even start Word Work though, I will go over every single box to make sure everyone knows how to do each activity. These will be what we use while building our stamina. I never give anything with explaining it first. Plus, that would defeat the purpose of using the Daily 5 if students have to get up to ask me how to do something, or if they aren't getting any meaningful knowledge from the activity.

I pinned this as it provided 7 ideas for teaching ESL students in the classroom starting with structure and listing out what they will be doing. I think that this would be extremely beneficial as it provides descriptive ideas for ways in which to help your ELL students learn concrete ideas that are central to the English language and will help them avoid confusion later on.

Fun idea that could be adapted to 6th grade math!
Multiplication game which could be made as addition, division etc. Mrs. Young's Explorers: Zap It!! - Math Game
Zap It! Great #multiplication(#addition, #subtraction) fact game for 2+ players. Student draws a stick and must give the correct answer to keep the stick. If the students misses it then he/she must put the stick back. Students keep playing back and forth. If a student draws a ZAP IT stick then they must put ALL their sticks back. Student with the most sticks wins! #math center
Maybe for sight words?? Zap It! Great multiplication fact game for 2+ players. Student draws a stick and must give the correct answer to keep the stick. If the students misses it then he/she must put the stick back. Students keep playing back and forth. If a student draws a ZAP IT stick then they must put ALL their sticks back.

Teaching With a Mountain View: Teaching Point of View with Pictures!
Mountain View, Idea, Point Of View, Language Art, Points Of View, Teaching Points, Literacy Skills, Writing Activities, Teaching Literacy
This lesson is a series of writing activities to help teach point of view. Students worked with the teacher to create an anchor chart of definitions and pronouns for each point of view. One activity uses pictures in the center of the page with five sections for students to write in different point of views (for example first person). There are suggests for differentiation on the website. It would be easy to help motivate students to write with a picture about a topic they enjoy.
Teaching With a Mountain View: Teaching Point of View with Pictures! This is an amazing way to teach literacy skills! Love this idea

A great way to access prior knowledge and see what need to be clarified when starting new topics. For younger classes, the teacher can write ideas up. For older classes, students can write on the chart or write on sticky notes! Great to keep up with over the years and see what similarities you have with students' ideals
