MLK Task Cards - Scoot

Martin Luther King Day worksheets are made fun in the form of these MLK scoot task cards. Scoot is a fun whole-class activity that is great for revision of a topic.  There are 20 questions in this set and an answer key is provided. There is also an answer sheet for students to record their answers. This is suitable for grades 3 to 5 and it is a pdf file that is available for purchase at my TpT collection. At a glance, the questions may seem difficult but I added a brief biography of Martin Luther King Jr. This has the answers to all the the questions in this MLK Day quiz set.

Free Compound Words - Posters

Free Compound Word Posters

I recently came across this picture from a few years ago when I was teaching third grade. I was teaching about compound words and found this amazing freebie on TpT. It's still a free download and it was created by Treetop Displays Teaching Resources - download it here from their store! I loved the visuals and the definition poster. Every page was created as a full page poster but to save on space, I think I printed most of them as 4 sheets per page. They can also be printed this way to be used as flash cards.

Editable Classroom Rule Posters in Different Themes

Editable Classroom Rule Posters in Different Themes are now ready! These are bright editable posters that you can print out for your classroom walls or print smaller sizes to be used as flashcards. Your students will love the cute pictures on each poster and the rules are easy to read. I chose simple words with positive messages and made it a point to leave out the 'do not' rule starter. Think of these rules as gentle loving reminders for students to know all of the things that they should do, and how they are to do it. Many more themes are available in my TpT collection. See the full list below.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
