Family Yearbook This family yearbook makes a great keepsake that memorializes your year together. Making a family yearbook is a great way to document activities and reflect on the past in a collective and creative setting. Games, trips, recitals, parties, milestones passed, and challenges met over the last year are all worthy to be put in print, and after a few afternoons of work on the project, you'll have preserved these memories for generations to come! Make a family yearbook with your kid to celebrate the passing of a great year. What You Need: Two 8” x 11” sheets of poster board (or one 16” x 22” sheet) Blank sheets of computer or laid paper Scissors Scotch tape or glue Black sharpie Colored markers (in lieu of markers, you can type text on your word processor and cut and paste onto pages) What You Do: Pre-production: Discuss what “categories” to include, such as activities, holidays, and travel. This project requires a little work, a ton of creativity and plenty of laughs.

Cause and Effect Game Bring the fun of card games and comprehension practice together in an innovative way! A great indoor game for older students, this engaging cause and effect activity quizzes your child on cause and effect relationships, and challenges him to use creative thinking skills too! What You Do: Step 1: Begin by refreshing your child’s memory on cause-and-effect. Students need to understand this relationship in order to make logical story connections. Step 2: Both you and your child should take a sheet of construction paper or other sturdy paper and set up two columns with a line down the middle. Step 3: Cut up your papers so that each cause and each effect is on its own card. Step 4: Play continues like the card game “Gin,” but with a twist. Players may match a cause or effect in their hand with an effect or cause on the upturned middle card, or draw a hidden card from the pile. Wondering what makes a match? Examples:

Top 10 Ways to Wake-up Students in Class The following is a guest post from Michelle Doman, a 7th and 8th grade Language Arts teacher at Brandon Middle School in Wisconsin. Top 10 Ways to Wake-up Students in Class Many people get a little squeamish, wiggly, and offer a scrunched expression when I respond to the question, “What grades do you teach?” I teach middle school, and with heart and honesty, I find great joys (and challenges) in teaching the group referred to as “tweens” and adolescents. So, I invite you into the quirky world of middle school. Here are the Top 10 Ways to Wake-up Students in Class... 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. If anyone has more ideas to capture the wondering, daydreaming, (hormonal) minds of middle school students, I would love to read about them.

Snakes and Ladders are AMAZING FOR ENGLISH Thank Goodness for Snakes and Ladders! I absolutely love this game and since I’ve started teaching I’ve used Snakes and Ladders to learn dialogue, to practice speaking and even for listening and reading skills – all while students are having fun falling down snakes and climbing up ladders. I know what you’re thinking: “but where do I buy all those boards? Doesn’t that cost a lot of money? So, okay, let me explain, it’s not the traditional Snakes and Ladders with a board and a dice to roll, it’s enlarged and altered for our English teacher needs! Firstly, I made a snake and a ladder. Next I made the “You Won!” Well this is how I “English-a-fy-it”: Instead of just boxes and numbers I fill the boxes with pictures or words. Now, how to play the game: (I’ll be refering to the snake and ladder board with the pictures drawn, for the topic, grade 6, “How often do you__________?”) Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. A: Can you help me with my survey? B: Sure. A: How often do you ___________________? A: Okay.

Communication Race Timing: Between 15-30 min Materials: piece of cardboard from any unused box (~20cm x ~20cm), marker, scissor, ~10 threads (around 60/80cm each one), big sheet of paper Instructions: You need to do some preparation first: Do a hole in the middle of the cardboard piece with your scissor. How to play: Each member of the team need to pull one thread and place the pen in the start line. They must do one “clean loop”. To increase the difficulty and fun, you could design crazy races or mazes. It is a game that you could play it few times during the year with the same team, you only need to change the design (race or maze). Learning Points: Communication, collaboration, and leadership. As facilitator, you could detect how take the leader and guide the team. At the end, you only need to ask what happens, and the team alone will come with collaboration and communication as themes to discuss. You could see also one video here: Variations:
