My Teaching Library Product Highlights

Here are this week’s product highlights…

Your kiddos will love learning to read with this fun, interactive phonics resource as they actively color, cut, paste, and write and learn words from the -at word family. This product focuses on CVC words but as a bonus, I’ve thrown in some optional CCVC words to expand learning!


Cross-curricular and engaging, this resource will have students use a variety of Language Arts skills and activities as they learn about this important woman of history! Earhart was an American aviation pioneer. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots!


Looking for fun Winter Math activities? Check out my Snowman Graphing for 2nd and 3rd Grades unit. Your students will have fun creating unique ‘dressed’ snowmen. After all are complete, the graphing activity(ies) can begin! Great as a whole class activity, or in cooperative groups and/or centers. This has been created for 2nd and 3rd grades, however younger or older students might enjoy as well.


Combining Geography and Art, students will discover the state flower for each of the 50 U.S. States! Each page has a large state flower to color + the state name. Whether you are studying each state or simply want to provide some fun but educational activities to your classroom, students will enjoy this resource.


This Science resource has been designed to help students learn the phases of cellular division / reproduction through the process of mitosis. Phases outlined: Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase and Cytokinesis. I’ve include both color and b/w posters / handout, with and without explanations of what actually occurs during each phase.

Layered Research Assignments – Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning

A layered research assignment gives students the opportunity to delve deeply into a topic and give students a variety of tasks from which to choose, all designed to guide and build a meaningful learning experience. Also, when using this layered approach, students will move through Bloom’s Taxonomy of knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

My Teaching Library offers this easy to use resource that will guide students through (step by step) the three layers of research and can be used with any topic. Since this resource can be used for any topic, it can be used again and again!

The three layers of research:
* The first (bottom) layer will give students 9 tasks of which they will perform all of them. This layer will help students get a good grasp of the topic and begin to gather the materials they will need to create a great project, (knowledge and comprehension).

* For the second (middle) layer, students are given 6 tasks of which they will choose to complete 4. Here, students will continue to gain knowledge and comprehension as well as begin applying (application), analyzing (analysis) and even some synthesizing (synthesis) of what is being learned.

* For the third (top) layer, students are given 9 tasks of which they will choose to complete 6. This top layer of tasks is truly designed for students to move further into synthesizing and evaluating (evaluation) of the material that has been studied.

As students progress from one layer to the next using this approach, they will move throughout, up and down, Bloom’s Taxonomy of learning and will have been able to not only learn about their chosen topic but will have demonstrated that learning in tangible ways.

Mid-October Activities and Lessons

Isn’t it amazing just how fast time goes by?! It is hard to believe it is mid October already! I live in Colorado and just last night we had a huge cold front move in from the north. Needless to stay, there was a lot of wind and I have leaves everywhere!

This made me think how much I used to love doing leaf activities with my son when he was younger. So…today I want to share a few you can find on My Teaching Library!

Shape Book – Maple Leaf
Students love to create and this resource, Shape Book – Maple Leaf, will give them a fun template to create! Whether they are publishing a story, a poem or a brief report about Autumn (Fall), their work will be extra special to them using these Maple Leaf templates.

Autumn Art | Leaf Mobile
Create a colorful autumn leaf mobile with the included leaf templates!

Autumn Art | Leaf Relief
Here is a quick art project for the Fall! Students will have fun creating a lasting leaf relief that they can keep for years to come.

My Teaching Library has a lot of other fun activities that would be perfect for this time of year! Here are 3 of the many available…

My Pumpkin Lapbook

Great to use anytime, especially in October or November during the Fall Holidays.In the resource you’ll find vocabulary, vocabulary cards, life cycle, parts of a pumpkin, pumpkin book templates to answer questions such as “Native American uses for pumpkin”, “Nutritional value of pumpkins” and more. Also included: Explanation / Instructions for lapbooking.

NEW RESOURCES

Because mid-October often has people thinking about creepy crawly things (like spiders…ewww), I’ve just created a resource for learning the life cycle of a spider…

Spider Life Cycle | Poster and Activities
Want to study the life cycle of a spider? Here is a resource for you!
This resource Includes:
– 2 labeled posters (color and b/w) – life cycle coloring page
– colorful center activity
– 2 cut-n-paste worksheets

I’ve also just added a new, fun Fall writing activity…

Fall Chaos | Creative Writing Activity
FUN Fall writing activity. Use as a lesson assignment or in a writing center. Using this resource, students will roll one die 4 times and use the chart to help determine the character, setting, weather and conflict that should be in their story. Then, they will plan out their story on given pages:
– Character Planner
– Setting Planner
– Story Planner

After all planning is complete, they will write their stories!
