Commonly Confused Words

It happens all the time. You’re writing a paper or texting a friend and have to ask yourself, “Is it affect or effect? A while or awhile?” Sometimes, even the most seasoned writers have to stop and do a quick Google search to double check themselves.It’s hard to deny the fact that the English language has a lot of commonly confused words. They either look alike, sound alike or, worst of all, look and sound alike (but have completely different meanings).If you take a moment to study the…

What a great anchor chart to use as a quick reference for narrative writing. I would put this up in the room and point to it when we practice narrative writing in our writer's notebook.

My Many Memorable Firsts

This past week, we started a new personal narrative writing unit all about my many memorable firsts. I began this unit with a hook to engage student interest--we talked about roller coasters. Who doesn't have a love-hate relationship with a good ol' roller coaster? Especially in a room of second graders, the feelings are unanimous. "Roller coasters are SO MUCH FUN!" We talked about what it was like to go on a roller coaster for the very first time--how that wait in line feels like forever…

Affect vs. Effect: Choosing the Right Word

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been typing a paper -- or even sending an email -- and stopped to wonder if you need to use affect or effect. We’ve all been there before. Affect and effect belong to that tricky family of words known as homophones. That means they sound the same but have different meanings and spellings. Other commonly confused homophones are two/to/too, accept/except, and there/their/they're. For now, let’s tackle the problem of affect vs. effect so we never have to stop…

Smart Readers Under Construction

Hi all! The big day is Tuesday! That's my first day back with my little sweeties. I'm getting excited and nervous. Yeah, can you believe after all these years of teaching I still get excited and nervous! I'm starting again this year with 30 firsties and I'm sure it will increase. I guess I should be used to it but I don't think I ever will. I thought I'd share with everyone some little tools I print to have on hand when I'm working in guided reading with my kiddos. I print several copies and…

Character Map

I created this character map that I use during stations. I copy the Character Traits on the back and have them highlight the traits that describe the character. Then, they write them on the front of the page in the Character Traits section. They draw an illustration of the character in the middle of the page. I love it because I can use it during stations for the story of the week, whole group, or they can even complete it independently using the main character from their AR book. Click on…

Show Don’t Tell: A Descriptive Writing Game

Descriptive writing enables the author to paint scenes and characters in the mind’s eye of the reader. Like an artist, carefully selected, colorful words can convey vivid imagery, but only if the author learns to "show" and not "tell" the audience. Learning how to use illustrative adjectives, action verbs, graphic adverbs, expressive metaphors, vivid similes and showy personification is the key to writing engaging stories. What's more is it makes the process of writing a lot more fun! Who…
