Teaching vocabulary with index cards is a fun yet effective method. Here’s how:
On one side of the index card, students write the vocabulary word in large letters so that it may be used as a response card. For daily practice, students spread their index cards with the words facing up on their desktops. The teacher calls out definitions, synonyms, antonyms, or sentences with missing words. Students locate the correct word and hold up the card. This is a great way for the teacher to check to determine if students need additional practice or if most know the words. Also, each student is participating with each teacher request – ‘the every student, every time theory.’

Not only can you get these free Johnny Appleseed vocabulary activities, but check out a slew of additional apple activities for big kids on my updated apple webpages here.
These webpages include figurative language, facts, and teaching ideas. Apple quotes are great for teaching Common Core figurative language standards. Students can refer to details and examples when explaining what the text says explicitly (another Common Core Standard) with a great list of apple facts. Have students write creatively using apples as a theme. Students can learn to follow directions with the classroom apple recipes.

Teach measurement with these device response, interactive web pages. I am super excited about my measurement activities. Years ago when I was first learning how to build web pages, this was one of my first projects. The programs and codes I originally used were so outdated that only about a third of the pages worked. Now everything is in full working order, device responsive, and interactive. YEAH! Here’s what you will find.
Several reference charts provide illustrations for each measurement unit.
