Character Trait Changes and Development activity
I don't know about your students, but mine seem fascinated by the changes characters can go through in a story! We have been having some great discussions about this. I use that roller coaster visual to help them "see" the changes and it really helps. We started off with Finklehopper Frog- great story about a frog wanting to fit in with his friends, but he gets made fun of and feels left out. I always love those moments when my students react the way they do when a character is mistreated in a story. They are so empathetic and look as if it almost hurts THEM when the character gets their feelings hurt. LOVE that! We stop part way through the story and brainstorm some character trait words. I do a lot of talking about Dollar Words and Penny Words in my classes. I teach the students to be mindful of word choices. Again, the visuals truly help- dollar vs penny. It is funny how quickly the students realize when they use a penny word and want to switch it out for a dollar word! They also like coming up with new dollar words that we haven't used. Great for their writing and vocabulary development too! After we constructed our character changes anchor chart together, we were ready to do a little more independent work on our own. Chrysanthemum follows the same pattern of character changes that Finklehopper Frog does, so we tackled this one next. I had the students fill in the visual roller coaster first. Then they went back and used that visual chart to help them prove the evidence. Being able to provide evidence is a huge step! The students inferring and deeper understanding is amazing. They surprised me at how some of the understood that when Chrysanthemum went home, her parents tried to push her up the coaster hill with their encouraging words and actions, but each time she went back to school and was made fun of, Chrysanthemum would slide back down into that valley. They totally understood that back and forth until there was a change at school with the other characters' behavior! You can grab a chart like these by clicking here or on either of the two above pictures if you are also working on character changes. Hope your kids love it like mine have!

What's In The Bag??
Questions, questions, questions! Aren't our student just full of them all of the time? I know mine are, but they sometimes need to be taught what kind of questions to ask and to how to ask questions that lead them to the important information. This past week, my class got to do a questioning activity to help them hone this skill. As students walked into class I had this pretty gift bag sitting out for them to see. Immediately, the questions start flying! What is that? Who is that for? Where did that come from? As the students were firing questions at me, I started writing down the question words to make an anchor chart. As we went along, I answered the questions (except for what is it, of course). The students got better at their questions and we learned to start using the information form our answers to guide our next questions. Some of the students even guessed what was in the bag- A Crown from when one of my sons was a homecoming king in high school. The students were engaged and motivated to be learning- just what I want from all students and just what I really desire from my strugglers! That quick little engaging activity led into the next one- my read aloud. Students were given white boards and markers and when they saw the text- SPIDER- they immediately had LOTS of questions. But they need a bit of scaffolding still at this point to ask questions, not tell me something. So I required them to write a question word from our anchor chart on their board that they would be using to ask their question. Without that little piece, we would have gone off the questioning into stories and statements. Students were given the choice of sketching their question or writing their question. Then we shared our thoughts. This one is "where do spiders make their webs". I had several stopping places in my book for the students to sketch or jot down their questions. The next day, one of my groups was introduced to the book, Sea Horses. I couldn't hardly get the materials out to them fast enough because questions were being though of so quickly! The students had a miniature anchor chart for their Interactive Reader's Notebook to scaffold them on how to begin their questions. They also received Post It notes on which to write the questions they had about sea horses. These were placed on our Readers Ask Questions graphic organizer. By now, my students couldn't wait to dive in to their books! I just love their enthusiasm for reading!! As students were reading, if they found the answer to one of their questions, they could lift the Post It note up and jot the answer to the question right under it. If you could use this miniature anchor chart and Readers Ask Questions graphic organizer, you can grab it here.

Great trick for teaching how to make 10. Students use a highlighter to find the "10" and then circle the other number with a crayon. Brilliant! #education #math #elementary #teacher
What a great way to teach Using 10 to add. I love the visual highlighting and the number bonds. This is such an important skill to teach so that students can apply it to multi-digit addition and subtraction. If students can find the next 10, it will open up a whole new world for them.
How to make 10. Students use a highlighter to find the "10" and then circle the other number with a crayon.
This makes sense, but didn't help my daughter who already had her own 'tricks' for basic math. Great trick for teaching how to make 10. Students use a highlighter to find the "10" and then circle the other number with a crayon. Brilliant!
Great trick for helping children use number bonds for visualizing mental math. They can see how taking part of the 7 to make the 9 =10 helps solve the equation. Can be done with other numbers as well to make 10. Students use a highlighter to find the "10" and then circle the other number with a crayon. Brilliant! Use objects of any kind along with this so they can physically manipulate the quantities to "prove" the concept.

This story map anchor chart is amazing! I love that she makes a lot of her anchor charts in advance, uses lots of color and makes them interesting and then laminates them so she can reuse them. Then with lots of colored post it notes - boom! An anchor chart the kids will use and that can be reused. LOVE!
Could do this in a pocket chart. Story map interactive anchor chart - change to who, what, when, where, how
This laminated story map anchor chart, is a good reusable way to go over the content of stories that are read together in class. The idea of using sticky notes is really easy and can be made interactive by having students write the content and add it to the map. Limitations include not being able to have more than one completed at a time without making additional charts, which would be convenient to compare stories, and students could easily remove sticky notes or they could fall off.
