The elementary school years in the US cover a range of grade levels, typically from kindergarten through fifth grade, but often ranging from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade or higher, depending on the individual school system. The lesson plans, worksheets, and teaching tips covered in this section of Bright Hub Education focus on teaching younger students, from Pre-K through Grade 5, though some lesson plans may be suitable for slightly higher grade levels as well.
While lesson plans are divided by the appropriate level as much as possible, you will also find a section entitled Grade School Activities, where we cover a broad range of activities and crafts that cross many grades, depending on the unit you are teaching and the individual abilities of your students. The vast majority of lesson plans and activities have been written and vetted by teachers and education professionals, and have been tried and tested in classrooms throughout the United States.
This lesson plan can be adapted for use in grades K – 4, depending on the level of your students, with second grade being the primary use case. By using the book “Cry-baby Moon” this science lesson will help teach students learn about objects in the sky, rainstorms, and phases of the moon.

Teachers are already using a lot of different teaching strategies to help struggling spellers, and yet some students continue to struggle. Using the American Sign Language Manual Alphabet can help these struggling spellers by giving them a visual and kinesthetic representation of spelling words.
