Writers Workshop: Revising (ARMS) & Editing (COPS)

We are making our way through the writing process and have come to the two trickiest parts- revising & editing. It always seems to hard to differentiate between the two-- during revising, I always see kids working on spelling or capital letters and the chance to really delve in and work on description and sensory details is lost. I came across some great help on Pinterest (of course!) and wanted to share my Revising (ARMS) and Editing (COPS) anchor charts with you: Analyze & Revise: Note: I…

Movie, Alarm Clocks, & Freebies Galore!!!

After several days in pajamas, lots of hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows), and tons of Hallmark movies, I returned to school today. It's really a miracle that I made it on time. I didn't fall asleep until 12:30 because I was printing all of the amazing finds I had over the break. Usually I print them at school on colored card stock, but I've decided to start investing in ink and print more in color. I was also watching the most amazing movie. It was called Beyond the Blackboard. If you…

Encyclopedia Skills for 3rd-5th

Back in October, I did some encyclopedia lessons with 3rd-5th grades, but because I was busy with Book Fair planning I didn't get a chance to post about it. Anywho...here's what I did... I used part of my reference PowerPoint to cover how to use an encyclopedia. You can find a copy of that PowerPoint here and on my freebies page. This is a research sheet that I send home as we are talking about searching for information in various places, like in book and on the Internet. You can download a…

Thesaurus Skills

This week I am covering thesaurus skills with fourth and fifth grade. Source I didn't have enough thesauri to use for each class, so I went online and found some at the Dollar Tree. They are very simple, but good enough for an introductory thesaurus lesson. I bought 16 copies, enough for students to partner up. For practice, I am having students work in groups of 4-5 to look up a word and find a specific synonym for that word. They will be given 10 words to look up and 10 synonyms to match…

Online Research

Some of my favorite information literacy skills lessons to teach are about online research. It's an important skill to develop and it's never too early to start. I cover online research with third, fourth and fifth graders beginning in October because October is Cyber Safety month and it fits nicely in that arena. This year, I broke it up into three different lessons: 1) Surfing the 'Net for Information 2) Evaluating and Citing Your Sources and 3) Note Taking. Here are some of the…
