After School Class - Advanced Class Materials
« on: April 10, 2011, 11:58:39 pm »
Firstly, I would like to request to the moderators to make some kind of area to put advanced class or after school materials into for elementary. I've been noticing a lot of threads on this, and I feel it would make a lot of our lives easier if we made a collected area to share such materials. Granted, for when we are dry on inspiration, we can still look around at middle school materials, or other materials people post, but it might be nice to start organizing something like this. Again, though, thanks for your hard work.

Now, besides that, I've decided that I'm going to simply make this into a 5th and 6th grade Advanced Class materials thread. I'll post my materials as I make them here, and if anyone else would like to post their materials on here as well, that would be great! The more, the merrier.

The first thing I've been working on with my advanced class has been the past tense. It's not necessarily the "most important" or "most interesting" thing to study, but it's important in many ways, and often hard to teach. My way has been mostly through worksheets and some games.

The "L1 Irregular Past" worksheet simply has 16 verbs with irregular simple past tense forms, and has sentences that the students should work together on, figuring out where the words go. I realize that some of the sentences can have multiple answers--if you want to correct that on your own, please do.

The "Past tense bomb game" is simply a companion bomb game to the L1 worksheet. I never actually used it though--I did other activities with them instead.

I made most of a lesson out of the one called "Silly Stories" though. In my classroom, we have many large, stuffed, soft dice. I use these every once in a while for games such as this. The idea here is that a student rolls 2 dice, and then makes a couple of selections based upon the numbers. (The students don't know it, but the first selection chooses a verb, and the second selection chooses a noun. There are a TON of combinations for this.) From that, another screen is shown with that verb and noun, and that person then has a story made about them according to it. The students loved it when one of the boys happened to get "marry" and "teacher". I, a male, gave him a big hug and said that "We'll be happy forever!" It was great.

Lastly, I intend to make a lesson out of the worksheet called "L2 Before After While". It is meant to teach a few basic adverbs of order: before, after, while, first, last, and the ordinal numbers used in that context. The main draw, though, is that it's connected to 2 videos involving Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. Video 1 here:

and video 2 here:

These should be fairly straightforward with that context. Like the L1 worksheet, though, you'll have to actually teach a few things--not all of the material is on the sheet, so the students have to pay attention to fill it in. For showing the videos, I'm going to show the video in full 1 time, and then a second time, show it in parts, to let the students fill it in, helping them along the way.

Now that I think about it, I should make "answer sheets" along with these, because there are a ton of blanks here and not every teacher thinks the same way I do. I'll do that tomorrow.

I wanted to share some ideas for an advanced class, for elementary school Last year we mostly did a lot of projects together. I did this so they can show creativity. They always did this in groups and I made sure to give them a lot of time to do their projects. Some of the projects I did with the advanced class are:
- Invent something ( they had to draw their invention on a poster board) as a group. They presented their invention. They told us what it was, what it does, and why people would want to buy it.
- Make up a brand. They had to draw their logo, and make up a slogan as well.
- Make up a country: They had to draw their country, make up a flag ( and why the flag looks the way it looks)
-We also wrote poems and short stories!
 If you have any questions, you can message me! :)

I do an advanced afterschool class

We're doing some Herald teen newspaper articles and most of the students are Grade 6's. I'm teaching them what is involved in a newspaper and what to look for in the article and the same time testing their comprehension when we read it as a class. WIth the help of other posts on Waygook i combind parts of games into another Powerpoint by creating T/F for the articles, vocabulary pictures and having them spin the wheel to get points as well as passing the dice around and getting 20seconds to state the right defintion or answer the question about the articles. Ive attached an example PPT here. You can find websites with good articles like superteachers.com and make an activity like this as a part of your lesson plans

I found an amazing website and am using it for my advanced reading and writing class (link is in the lesson plan). I am also planning on using Curious George videos (i downoaded an entire season) and asking the kids to verbally summarize them, then write summaries.

Here's what I have.

I have to give three 40 minute advanced lessons a week (grades 5-6). It's by far the part of my job for which I have to do the most work. Anyway, after a couple of months of scrounging off the Elementary Level Master Index (http://waygook.org/index.php?topic=7649.0 - thank you!), I'd like to contribute.

Here's a variation of a battleships game I tried out yesterday and which was very successful, so I tweaked it a little to allow the kids to play in pairs.

Yesterday I gave each of the kids one of the sheets, and they had to pick 10 boxes and mark them with an 'X'. I would then read off 15 sentences (pre-written, to avoid accusations of favouritism) and if they'd predicted any of my chosen sentences correctly, they circle that box, with the idea being to get the most answers in sync with mine. Basically, a larger version of bingo, with candies as incentives. It's good listening practice, as I would occasionally complicate the sentences and hide the answers within what I was saying.

So tomorrow I'm going to do a similar thing but in pairs, and more closely resembling battleships, to get them speaking as well. They each get a sheet and fold the top half up to hide their grid, then mark 10 boxes. They take turns to ask questions, hoping to find their partner's 10 answers first. There are three rounds (body parts w/ descriptions, weather, and dates / ordinal numbers) and you can just edit the grids to relate to other topics. If it's successful, I'll try it out with 5th grade lesson 7 too.

So here is something i threw together for my after school class, the co teacher doesnt translate so overall the kids dont learn anything which sucks, but it is a basic tutorial on how to use the word cool as slang.  I kinda dated myself as an 80's child but what the hell these people were and are cool.  Feel free to manip it as you like and tweek whatevs so that the kids can understand better.  I didnt care much cause i get no help so "it's my choice" as i was told from the beginning of this 50 minutes of baby sitting.

I taught a Library class and this was the main PPT I used. Has vocabulary, dialogue, and a prompt for having the students write haiku. For more advanced kids.

Used this as an after school class withmy grade 6's last week. It was a bit too advanced for some of them but maybe for higher level students or to be played throughout the year as they improve.

This looks like a lot of work went into this game, but how do you play it?

I have two 1 hour after school classes per week for higher level Grade 3 & 4 elementary students.  I focus on speaking and conversation.  These are a few things l've played recently that went down really well.  It's a mixed class of 4 boys and 4 girls. 

Top 5 Game - Has also worked really well with my teachers class!  The kids loved this, some of the topics had to be skipped over as they were too young.  Actually took up 2 classes as it's pretty long.  The first class l played it that they had to get the guesses in the correct order and score as per the worksheet, the next class l said they could get 10 points for each correct guess regardless of the placement.  The latter obviously went down better with them as they are younger.  With the teachers class l made them think about the order and score accordingly.     

The Hot Seat General - l played this first to ease them in, has a picture and a matching word, Ss describe the word without saying it.  I made each student describe 6 for a candy. 

G5 Taboo - Cards l made based on last years grade 4 textbook from my school (sorry l don't know the name).   Shows a word to describe and one taboo word.   Played today and made the kids do 5 each for a candy.

G6 Taboo - Cards l made based on last years grade 5 textbook from my school (sorry l don't know the name).  I will play these next lesson.  Again each kid will need to describe 5 for a candy.   

Hope this stuff is useful to someone  :azn:
