I may not be a teacher but I do have a child who I will love to read and discuss books with. These lesson plans for a variety of kids' books is amazing.
Contractions Foldable ~ My kids loved making these! (Free idea.)
BATTLESHIP SPELLING PRACTICE~ A 2-player game where each student inserts the word list in to spaces going across. Players take turns guessing coordinates. If they miss, they mark it on their board. If they hit a letter, they keep guessing until they miss. If they sink a word, the player marks it off of his list. The goal of the game is to sink all of your opponent's words. Fun and great practice!
Zap It...a game I learned in grad school. Put high frequency words on sticks (these are foam sticks) and write zap it on a few sticks. The kids pull sticks from a container and read the words. If someone gets Zap It, all of the sticks go back in the bin. Great word work #daily5
