Margaret Nominates
Five Outstanding Freebies
February 18, 2012

Presidential Paragraph Sort—The LocoTeacher—Georgia
This one-page activity challenges students to descramble a random group of facts about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln so that they create an organized paragraph of information about each man.  Great activity for Presidents Day

This 30-slide, interactive power point is a winner!  Great resource for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade science teachers.  If you are also a “Power Point Maniac,” you’ll want to check out this seller’s other products.

Using Appropriate Tone in Writing—Secondary Solutions—California
Kristen Bowers aka Secondary Solutions has chosen writing tone, another one of those literary elements that can be confusing for students, as the subject of her newest freebie.  This lesson clearly explains the concept and then offers practice sentences for students to show what they have learned.  Very appropriate for gifted 4th and 5th graders as well as regular middle grades.    

Road Runner Contractions—Michelle Harper—Tennessee
This is one clever idea—a dynamic duo of learning and movement!  The teacher places numbered contractions questions on each child’s desks and hands out numbered answer sheets.  Then students race from desk to desk until they answer every question.  The concepts in this fun product can be adapted and used for a large variety of topics and subjects across grade levels.  Download this one, even if you don’t teach contractions.

Fact and Opinion Review—Power Point—Amanda Bradford—Indiana
This well-organized and attractively presented power point takes students through a series of short paragraphs that can be identified as either containing facts or opinions.  A really good workout for learning and practicing this topic.
