My kiddos are having some trouble with FACT AND OPINION this year, and I admit, I'm starting to run out of ideas.  INTERNET TO THE RESCUE!!!

Fact and Opinion Freebie!

We are working on distinguishing between facts and opinions this week. I made this fact and opinion sort to help students practice telling the difference between the two to use tomorrow. Before the lesson, we viewed a flipchart to teach the difference between facts and opinions. We then listed clue words to help us know when we are reading an opinion on an anchor chart. Here are some of the words we had on our chart - good, bad, best, better, worst, worse, fun, wonderful, perfect, awful, I…

Redirecting

This week I found myself with 5 extra minutes before a fire drill. Not one to sit around and waste time ,{which is a disaster waiting to happen in a 1st grade classroom anyways} I drew a staircase on the board. I wrote a CVC word at the bottom and began calling on students to change ONE letter to make a new word. We continued until we reached the top of the staircase. My students LOVE this simple activity and it's great for reviewing phonics and spelling skills! I created some Word Stairs…

Fact and Opinion with Pictures

One of the concepts I was surprised some of my students struggled with last year was fact and opinion. I realized we needed a concrete way to experience and discuss it. I found some cool pictures, printed them and glued them onto pieces of butcher paper. I placed them around the room, handed out the ever-so-popular Mr. Sketch markers, and let my students work together to write sentences that were facts and sentences that were opinions. They labeled them with an F or O for fact or opinion if…

Sentence Strip Timelines - Classroom Freebies

I love using timelines in history at the end of a unit of study, so students can get an overview of events and make generalizations about historical figures or time periods.
