St. Valentine’s/ mother’s day

I put here mother’s day and Valentine’s because I think  many times the same idea can be used for both.

IT IS VERY EASY:

Materials: photocopies, half of a sheet of cardboard, felt tips, blue, scissors

 Steps:

1.- Ask the children to colour the heart they want with their felt tips 

2.- Cut it out. 

3.- Cut  the heart with the words buy the line and fold it by the dotted lines 

4.- Stick the coloured heart over the one you have folded 

5.- Fold the cardboard in twos  for the card and stick the hearts inside. 

6.- Decorate it as you want (in  the photo there are stickers)

You can download the copy by clicking here or on the picture

The activity has been created by me, although the hearts are taken from the arts and crafts book (primary 4) “think, do and learn”  (oxford education)  

 

 

 

Here there are some more ideas from the web

Semantic Word Visually Online

Graph Words it’s an free and useful English online thesaurus that helps you find the meanings of words and show connections among associated words. You can easily see the meaning of each by simply placing the mouse cursor over it.

Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. These meanings and semantic relationships are revealed in a graphically way

Here you have an example

HOW TO USE IT?

To search for associated words, type the word in the search box at the top of the window and press the “Draw” button. You may also press the enter key instead.  The word you searched for will appear in the center of the display, and will be surrounded with words and meanings that are related to it.
To save what is currently displayed in the Graph Words, you can press the “Save as image” button on the toolbar.

Some other features of Graph Words to find and learn meanings of words

  • 1.-Each synonym dot can be clicked to find out its meaning and related words.

  • 2.-The tool is free and doesn’t require a member account to start using it.

  • 3.-Words can be saved as an image for your future reference or for other purposes.

  • 4.-Synonims are categorized based on the definitions of the main word.

  • 5.-For words that have lots of synonyms, sometimes you cannot see its entire map. Fortunately, the map can be moved by dragging it so that you can view the hidden dots or synonyms.

  • 6.-Each dot can be moved as well.

HOME SCHOOL SHARE

lapbooks homeschoolshare1A great page totally recomendable: Homeschool Share (HSS) is a on-line cooperative effort of several homeschooling moms to provide free but quality literature-based unit studies and resources. Here, you can  find lots and lots of useful resources, ideas and lesson plans for different ages and levels.


Are you looking for resources in order to exploit some books or stories with your children? If so, this is the right  page. Have a look  and don’t miss it.

Personally, I love “lapbooks” ideas and how they  work. They are mainly based in different story books.

Here I leave the different sections of this wonderful page in order you can  go there directly.

LEVEL ONE For ages 2-4 it’s  a perfect introduction to literature-based unit studies .

level1

LEVEL TWO  For ages 4-6 These units have more structure to the lessons.

level2

LEVEL THREE For ages 6-8 the books are more complex than Level 2 and usually have more text.

level3

LEVEL FOUR For ages 7-9 the books tackle more complex lessons on topics such as geology, astronomy, etc.

level4

LEVEL FIVE For ages 7-12 The lessons involve more writing as well as require the student to research various topics. 

level5

LEVEL SIX They are designed to challenge the student to analyze, research, and think critically, while helping the student toward greater independence in their academics.

level6

ANIMAL STUDIES These units can be used with a variety of ages. They are not based on living books, so it is recommended if your student ares interested in.

level animal studies

MULTI BOOK THEME These units revolve around one theme and are dependent on a variety of books to enhance learning.  They allow a more in-depth study of one particular topic.

level multibook

CONNECTIONS Each theme contains multiple Homeschool Share units: animals, arts, maths, geography…plus a library list of suggested go-alongs.

level connections

MULTI-AGE These units and lapbooks can be used with more than one age group (especially great if you are teaching multiple ages at once)!
