Expecting something for nothing is the most popular form of  hope. Arnold  H. Glasow

I want to invite all of my readers to find all of my freebies on TpT. I have talked about several of them on this blog, but many others are available.

This product creates a 3 and 1/2 chart that shows the levels of Bloom’s questions. I have one in my room. I move the hot air balloon at times to talk about why some questions are better questions than others. Great student discussion requires higher thinking!

I also have a product for “Diving Deeper with Bloom”. It has the same format, except that a cute scuba diver goes deeper into thinking about ideas. This product costs $1.00.

Our school uses The Comprehension Toolkit to help build comprehension skills and to  provide the students with tools for understanding what they are reading. The third – fifth grade set of the Toolkit has 6 books. I have created posters to go along with each book. Since I only synthesized the authors ideas, and didn’t really add any of my own, all of these materials are free. There are 30 posters in all.

Another freebie, that you have already seen, are my patriotic bookmarks. This set includes bookmarks for the Pledge of Allegience, the Star-Spangled Banner, the Preamble, and the Declaration of Independence.

Here is a weather related freebie. This is great for adding a writing component to your unit on weather.

My List, Label, Group graphic organizer can be used with any concept. It is a great extension to the “K” part of a KWL. Great for using conversation as a learning tool to build vocabulary.

If you have visited my blog before you have seen many of my word of the day cards. This freebie is a package of some of the most popular ones I have posted. Many packages of word of the day cards and other vocabulary cards are available at my store.

My favorite freebie of all time is my context clues lesson, Diamonds or Coals. I recently added to this freebie to make it even better.

Finally, my newest freebie is for Halloween. It has two compound word activities.

I hope this is helpful and that you were able to easily download any or all of the activities that would be of interest to you. I think next Saturday I will scour my blog for all of the freebies I have only posted here for another roundup!

See you Monday with the Word of the Day!
