Shark Week Blog Hop!

All teachers know that kids learn more when they’re excited and engaged. Today a team of bloggers come together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with a theme your students are sure to love!

One way I help my students get excited about learning is to give them activities and materials that entice their love of learning.  I started these fun "Talk Like A..." activities last November with Talk Like a Pilgrim and it was a hit!  Students were so engaged and loved learning new words that they didn't even know they were practicing such an important and key skill:  Context Clues So after the first one, I decided to make them for each month of the year.  They couldn't WAIT to learn to talk like a ________ (insert character of the month)

Of course, picking topics the students are interested in always helps, too!

My Shark Week freebie is a "Talk Like a Shark" context clue activity.  This pack includes 6 different shark themed words where students use context clues to determine their meanings.  An anchor chat poster, cards, recording sheet, answer key, and an extension activity (create a diagram) are included!  Your students will love learning all about sharks by learning new vocabulary terms that will make them come to life!

  2. Ciera, when I was teaching intervention, context clues was one of the HARDEST things to teach- and I love your products for filling that gap! They are so creative and unique, and the kids just plain find them fun. Thank you so much for sharing this freebie and linking up with me this week! :)
