gift tags

I use Puzzlemaker for spelling words at school
all the time...
but how cute is this for gift tags? 


click HERE to visit the free site...

choose "word search" 


you will be on THIS page 
and you can skip down to "enter your words"...
just enter the name of the recipient about 10 times
but add an extra letter to the end of each line 
(otherwise it will only print the person's name once)

print your page and circle the name
as many times as you like...

whalla, a cute little {free} gift tag idea...
I just printed this on copy paper but it'd 
be cute on cardstock or glued to a 
thicker backing:)

cartoon strip sequencing of plot

we just read Why Monkeys Live in Tress 
an African Folk Tale retold by Julius Lester...

the students created a cartoon strip sequencing the main
ideas of the story....

I cut 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of paper in half long ways 
and students folded it in half long ways first, then in half two 
more times to create 8 boxes...
before they began the activity they had to brainstorm the 
8 most important events as the plot progresses...


some students tried for the bare minimum but 
I showed cartoon strips and explained how 
great their work will look when they saturate the 
page in color...they loved it!

figurative language


While studying figurative language around this time of year
I like to have the students write descriptive sentences to 
describe a haunted house or something spooky. 

Simply make a template and have students trace the 
house pattern on black construction paper. Cut out doors
and window and fold to open. Back the house cut-out with
bright yellow paper. Behind each window and door students
write a figurative language sentence or phrase to describe 
the scene. I love some of the choices..."the wind whispered
through the halls of the house," and "the old floorboards 
shrieked as I stepped on them." 

When all students have finished decorate the outside 
with chalk or white crayons. We lined up these houses on
bunched up and crumpled up brown paper bags to create 
a "street" and the students named the streets with 
eerie names. This idea can be altered to fit parts of speech, 
vocabulary, etc... have fun!
