Interesting Tidbits

 free interesting tidbit
I have a fun activity to do on Meet the Teacher Night or on the 1st Day of School. Have students fill out an "Interesting Tidbits" sheet about themselves. They write one thing or tidbit that others might not know about them. For example some students might write, "I have 5 dogs.", "I have 4 brothers and sisters.", or "My dad is in the army."   Nothing personal should be shared. Collect all the sheets and read them on the First Day of School. The students have to guess who the interesting tidbit belongs to. This is a fun way to get to know students in the classroom. Then I bind all of them together and make a classbook. The book is placed in our classroom library to be read over and over.

This activity was beneficial in many ways. One way was it got students to do an activity while I was busy at Meet the Teacher Night by meeting with parents and other students. The second way was for me to assess my student's writing skills before getting to know them yet. I could tell what kind of writer each student was, if they could write a complete sentence, and/or who was having trouble with their writing. All of this was great knowledge of my students before meeting them.

Have a great first week!

The Pledge of Allegiance Activity and Freebie

I have a fun activity to do with the American flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. Students use tear art to make the flag and then write the words of the pledge on the white spaces of the flag. 

Here are the materials you need to make this Tear Art Flag Craftivity:
·        1 12x18 white construction paper
·        ½ sheet of 12x18 red construction paper
·        ¼ piece of blue construction paper
·        Some extra white paper to make the stars
·        Glue

Have students tear 7 long strips of red construction paper and glue to the 12x18 white construction paper. Make sure there is a red strip at the top and a red strip at the bottom of the flag. Glue the blue construction paper square in the top right corner of the flag and tear 50 tiny pieces of white paper and glue on the blue paper to represent the stars. (Tearing 50 tiny pieces of white paper was the hardest part of this activity.)

Then have student write in PENCIL the words of the Pledge of Allegiance on the white stripes of the flag. Then they can go over their pencil marks in black marker. These are really cute hung in the hallways and in classrooms.

Non-Fiction Ideas

Do you use Scholastic News, Time for Kids, or Weekly Reader in your classroom? If you do, I have a great idea for you. I save these flyers and cut out the articles that are kid friendly and interesting. I glue the articles to colored construction paper and laminate them. Then, I store them in a Ziplock bag. After a few years of doing this, I have a ton of non-fiction articles that are ready to use.  
Once you have some articles saved up, place them at a reading center along with a graphic organizer. Sometimes I write up a set of questions about a certain article and have the students answer them individually or with teams. I only have to do this one time for that article and I can use the set of questions over and over again. Also, most graphic organizers will fit any article. Depending on the grade level you teach and how difficult the article is, the students should be able to do this independently.

 non fiction graphic organizers
Here is a FREE graphic organizer you can use with any non-fiction reading. Just click the picture on the left and you will be able to download this graphic organizer freebie!

If you do not use a "weekly reader" in your classroom, sometimes I have used old magazines that the library discards too. I try to find kid friendly articles or stories to add to my collection. 

We all know that non-fiction reading can be extremely hard for students to read and comprehend. These little articles are a great way to incorporate more non-fiction reading in your classroom for very little cost and prep time. 

Hopefully you can use this tip!
