You’d be wrong, though. We found 27 of the most stunning or clever print ad campaigns out there. They are seriously impressive, even though they are completely static (unlike most of the ads we see online). THIS is advertising."

Summarization Strategy ~ Students start by writing a summary of a reading selection on a large (lrg) index card. Then students use the medium (med) card to take info from LRG card. Once info is condensed onto the MED card, students do the same thing one more time, transferring key details from the MED to the small (sml) card. This strategy is similar to the 8 sentence -> 5 sentence -> 3 sentence strategy. Keep culling only the critical information until the summary is clear and succinct!

"the incredible shrinking notes" where students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must then take the information from the medium sized card and condense it down either further onto the small card. Found on The Middle School Mouth blog.

The secret is out. by rosanna -this made me smile :)
In this rare footage we see a secretive animal who is a direct descendant from Hannibal's war elephants who crossed the Alps many centuries before. Some of the scouting elephants broke off from Hannibal's army and went to the beaches of Normandy. They were befriended by one of King Arthur's knights and brought to the British Isles. But eventually they were chased north to Scotland because they ate all the thatched roofs of the English Cottages. Now they live in secret near the Lake/Loch Ness.

Sorting prefixes, suffixes, and roots
Words Sorting, Roots Words, Idea, Student, Language Art, Prefixes And Suffixes, Prefixes Suffixes, Paper Plates, Sorting Activities
Language Arts activity ~ Root words, suffix, prefix. Students formed groups of three or four and collected their materials. Each group received a disposable plate with three sections. The sections were labeled “prefix,” “suffix,” and “root word.” Finally, groups were given a bag of big words. They used scissors to cut the words into parts and drop each part into its respective section on the plate.
Prefix, suffix, and root word sort using a paper plate! Easy!
Word identification 2 This is a good sorting activity for students to break the words up into their prefix suffix and root word. It helps to build knowledge of all 3 so that words can be interchanged with their prefix and suffix. I would use this as a center or as whole group instruction to work on spelling words and to help the students understand the use or prefix and suffix.
WORD PARTS LESSON~ Students form groups of three or four. Each group gets a disposable plate with three sections. The sections are labeled “prefix,” “suffix,” and “root word.” Finally, groups are given a bag of big words. They use scissors to cut the words into parts, and then drop each part into its respective section on the plate. Great idea!
