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.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 22, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Sep 22, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Sep 22, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Sep 22, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
