Lesson Planning - Poetry Choice Board

Whether you just came back from Spring Break or you are looking forward to time off next week, we have new resources to support your curriculum planning and instruction. Here’s what is brand new on TeacherVision this week. 

Elementary Grammar Warm-Ups

Get it here

There are ten warm-ups for your students in this packet that was created by an English teacher and grammar expert. Each exercise is designed to take students from five to seven minutes, the time that is usually spent on a bellringer or activator. However, you can also use these short exercises during a Daily 5, Station Rotation, or work on them together as a whole class. A teacher’s answer key is included, and the warm-ups cover the following topics:

  • Common and Proper Nouns
  • What’s the Subject?
  • What’s the Predicate?
  • Possessive Nouns Pronoun-Verb Agreement
  • What’s the Adjective?
  • Commas With A Series
  • Adjective or Adverb?
  • Capitalizing Proper Nouns
  • What Type of Sentence?

Math Choice Boards

TeacherVision Advisory Board Member, Tara, is an elementary school teacher in Pennsylvania with fourteen years of experience teaching third grade. She has created Math choice boards that each contain nine activities to support your students to practice perimeter, fractions, and time. She designed them for grades 3-5, but they can be modified to meet all your students’ needs. She recommends using them during guided Math centers, for homework, or for early finishers.

Fractions Choice Board

Students will demonstrate their understanding of equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and fractions as whole numbers.

Perimeter Choice Board

Get it here

Students will demonstrate their understanding of finding perimeter and designing shapes with a given perimeter.

Time Choice Board

Students will demonstrate their understanding of setting clocks, telling time, and finding elapsed time.

Time Choice Board

Tara has also created three additional choice boards: Division, Multiplication, and Geometry. To learn more about what choice boards are, and how to use them, check out: New This Week: Three Math Choice Boards.

Science Poetry Packet

Get it here

April is National Poetry Month, and usually it’s the English and elementary teachers that are teaching poetry in their classes. However, poetry isn’t just for Humanities. TeacherVision Advisory Board Member, Sara, has designed a creative and interdisciplinary lesson where students use Science keywords to write three different types of poems: Haiku, Acrostic, and Tanka. Designed for upper elementary, and middle school students, this lesson can be modified for your high school students as well.
