In the last couple of years, I've been making classroom resources for my shop on Teachers Pay Teachers. Most are printable PDFs along with some PowerPoint slideshows...here are several of my TPT activities related to English language arts:
REAL Monarch Butterflies Nonfiction Activities has my original realistic artwork, photographs, informational text, a diagram to label, butterfly words poster, a 3D life cycle craft, and more.
Teacher feeback: “Great supplement to my unit!”
Similes & Meanings Printable Class Book is a fun way for kiddos to learn this type of figurative language. They will draw a silly, literal picture of one of the 30 similes then a picture of its real meaning.
Feedback: “My students loved Crazy Like a Fox and enjoy learning about similes.”
Simile Starters Printable Class Book, which has 30 writing prompts for kids to write their own, original similes.
Feedback: “Just what I needed.”
“Will be using this tomorrow morning.”
