Here is a sneak peek of what is going at a Grade 7 Heaven:

Animal themed literacy station and printable workbook focused on teaching the beginning and ending sounds of common animal names.

·        In this download you will find printable cards that you can laminate and use in your ELA or spelling tubs. Throw in some letter tiles or magnet letters and you have a great kinesthetic learning activity


·        You will also find a printable booklet that mirrors the station cards. These can be used as a review, as recording sheets, or as an adapted activity to be used with the cards.



Skip Counting and Number Review pack to help review and develop these important skills. In this package you will find:


·        Introductory practice sheets to help your little ones learn skip counting

·        Uses tally lines, subitizing, and number lines.

·        Skip counting review sheets to see if they have conceptual understanding

·        Number review sheets to make sure that they keep practicing those important math skills like counting up, one more and one less, illustrating a number pictorially, numerically, and concretely, number sequencing, patterns with 3 or less elements and more!

·        Skip Counting by 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 Anchor charts to place on your walls/boards for visual learners or to aid in learning

·        Assessment charts to track student learning

This Spider Lapbook was created to be an accompanying set of mini lessons to complement our reading of Charlotte’s Web. It stretched over a period of eight weeks and we completed one or two
sections a week in conjunction with books and videos we watched {most are listed to give you a starting off point}.


·        This lapbook includes printables - some completed and some to allow for student writing, instructions, optional cover art, and an optional assessment;

·        Comic strip, lettering, and clipart spider for the cover

·        flip cover section that outlines anatomy of a fly and the anatomy of vs. a spider

·        venn diagram comparing arachnids and insects

·        life cycle of a spider

·        flipbook outlining the seven types of spider silk and their uses

·        pop out book all about arachnids

·        fold up book illustrating predators of spiders
 pocket outlining interesting facts we have learned

·        differences between web and wandering spiders

·        three mini books and pocket {super spiders, spider senses, and how to eat like a spider}

·        two page final assessment

I used this in a grade one class successfully but it can be used up to grade 5 or 6 as well– they all LOVED it. We covered sections as they popped up in the book and it flowed smoothly. Plus, they had a very cool final product to take home and use to tell their parents about all they learned.

 It includes:

An expectation poster

Being part of the club is meaningful not because of the prize but the accomplishment. It is important for them to raise the bar high themselves and take small steps to make a bright future.

Challenge games and activities are outlined also, but the materials themselves are not included because this too will be unique to your classroom and teaching style.
