Just last week, I was reviewing cause and effect with my second graders. I had used my cause and effect task cards in a game of Scoot, created flap books, played a matching game of cause and effect. BUT I needed more. I wanted to assess their knowledge during morning warm up. I didn't have much time, so I turned to Scholastic Printables. I quickly typed in the topic I needed, the grade level range and up popped this fabulous page. I printed it out and used it to assess my kiddos. What a time saver!
Later in the same week, I wanted to go over contractions with my students. Once again, I used Scholastic Printables. They read this adorable story about Humpty Dumpty and needed to put the underlined words into contraction form. The kids loved the story and easily completed the printable. Win-win!
Whenever possible, I like to give things a try before I jump in with both feet. Here are few samples resources for you to look out and download so you can get an idea of what Scholastic Printables is all about.
