FREEBIE of the week

This week, the FREEBIE is offered to you by Tracee Orman. This is what she had to say about it: 

FREE Download: "Live & Learn" Life Lessons Class Activity for Anytime or at the 

End of the Year - Common Core Aligned!

This is an inspirational, fun, and rewarding activity to share with your students!

Several years ago I was inspired by a little book called "Live and Learn and 

Pass It On" by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. His idea was to have others jot down the 

lessons they have learned in life. He compiled all these lessons into a book, 

identifying each only with the person's age. 

I thought it would be neat to see what my students could come up with at the 

end of the year. It's been such a positive experience that I wanted to share it 

with other teachers. Each year I read examples from the past to my students 

before they write their own. Year after year I get funny ones, sad ones, and 

some shocking ones, too. It's a great way to wrap up your semester, year, at 

any age or grade level!

Other uses for this activity: compile a collection for graduating seniors, a 

retiring teacher (have students write what they have learned about life from 

that particular teacher), or advice for a new teacher. The possibilities are 

endless and it's such a positive and fun way to end the term.

I updated the activity to include a literature & history component. Includes 

Common Core standards for use in language arts or history/social studies
