Reading is so much more than just words on a page. It’s the pictures that go with the words, the mental images we make to coincide with our reading, and the activities we do to add meaning to the reading. We have some free activities to help you give meaning to your students’ reading. Have a look!

Reader’s Theater encourages students to act out their favorite parts of a story, or to think of a new ending to a story to act out. It takes creativity, movement, and teamwork. It also requires language and comprehension. It’s a great way to add concrete understanding to a difficult passage. We have some ready-made resources to help you get started.

Author’s purpose is a pretty dull topic… at least until you set it to music. Figure out why a writer wrote, but do it with music! Make your lessons a bit more snappy and exciting with this lively tune.

One of my favorite sets of language flash cards is a list of interjections. It’s funny, because many of them we don’t often think of, but we use them fairly often. It’s sort of a lost part of speech, but they can pack in so much meaning into a syllable or two. Here are some examples you can download and print, as well as other sets of language flash cards. Take a look at these interjections and have your students practice one each day!
Aha, Aw, Bye, Boo, Bravo, Cheers, Darn, Eek, Gee, Good Grief, Hello, Hey, Huh?, Oh Dear, Oops, Ouch, Phew, Rats, Shucks, Shh, Thanks, Uh-Oh, Well, Whoa, Wow, Yeah, Yay, Yikes, Yippee, Yuck.

The most important things that first year of school is knowing your numbers, your letters, maybe a few colors, and possibly how to write your name. That shoe-tying thing is somewhere in there as well. Sadly, a lot of kids come to school unable to identify or say their letters, so we’ve got to get them caught up. Do a series of pretests, assessments, and post tests to determine success and growing familiarity with letters. Our free resources will help!

October is a great time to be doing Fall activities, unless you live in the southern hemisphere, anyway. Assuming you don’t, let’s kick this off with a first grade reading comprehension activity. Students in the south or in arid climates might find northern USA’s Fall season interesting. Similarly, those in the north might find the season of Fall pretty different in the south. This is a great time to pull in prior knowledge and maybe even have your own classroom fall festival!
