Lesson Plan Source Announces New Opportunity for Common Nouns Chart Download

September 16, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Quickly growing and well-respected teaching website “Lesson Plan Source” is pleased to announce that their Common Nouns Chart Download is reaching a number of teachers all over the world as it has attracted a lot of attention online.

The chart is of course an “anchor chart,” which has essentially been used in classrooms forever but has developed into a highly useful, customizable tool to teach basically every subject. Teachers in public and private schools, as well as homeschool teachers, find that the use of anchor charts are highly effective. The use of a chart anchors the concepts being taught and then often is used as a reference tool after the lesson is over.

Many teachers are devotees to the use of anchor charts. In fact, online discussions on the subject between teachers often include the assertion that the charts are almost addictive because they can be enjoyable to make for some classes and teachers. The general consensus is that the best use of anchor charts is to only leave posted those charts which are in current use; too many charts will mean that the students will stop referring to any of them.

Jeanne Kindler is a user of Lesson Plan Source’s materials and she has found their offerings very helpful. She said, “They have well-designed, attractive charts and templates and I’ve used them for several different lessons and modules. My kids love the charts and worksheets that we have made with Lesson Plan Source’s work.”

Not only is the website offering the chart, there is also a template so that students can make their own charts. Ms. Kindler also said, “Studies have shown that some of us learn much better by doing than we do simply by listening to a lecture. Using these templates is a great way to do this.”

Many experienced teachers find that using the Common Nouns Chart from Lesson Plan Sources gives easy reinforcement for students who are struggling with learning the parts of language. And when coupled with the templates for common nouns or for any other concept that the students have participated in creating, the class will begin to take ownership of the charts and will be more likely to refer to them.

The owner of Lesson Plan Source, Deanna, said that she was not sure exactly how many copies of this particular download have been purchased. She said, “When we produce resources like this, we hope that people will find them and that they will be very useful for them. The feedback for these charts has been very enthusiastic and thus we will continue to research and create more of them.”

She went on to say, “So often we hear from teachers that they do not like anchor charts because they do not feel like the ones they make are attractive enough. We really try to reinforce the fact that anchor charts are tools to help learners and not auditions for art school! At any rate, Lesson Plan Source's products help make the process simpler and more enjoyable for students and teachers.”

In 2004, Deanna, in her first year of teaching, came up with the idea of easily available resources for teachers around the country and subsequently founded Lesson Plan Source. She has taught children in various settings from conventional mainstream schools to private schools to home schooling.

Deanna is a certified educator with a Bachelor's degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences, a Post-Baccalaureate in Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Special Education (Pre-K to 8). With three young children of her own she is still passionate about teaching and she now devotes her time to helping other teachers maximize lesson impact through the resources that Lesson Plan Source can provide.

Any teacher in any setting would benefit from visiting Lesson Plan Source's website where further information about what is available can be found and for those interested, there is an easy sign-up option. In addition, the company also runs a blog which may also prove to be a source of valuable information.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 23, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Sep 23, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 23, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Sep 23, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Sep 23, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
