In brief

September Lesson spotlight

Have you seen our FREE ebooks full of lesson ideas for teachers? In our September lesson spotlight, we’ve shared one special lesson from each book for you to explore this month. Check out the Resources section of your Teacher Dashboard for even more ideas!

Early Elementary (K-2)

As part of a Character Day celebration in September, ask students to try activity #6 in this book and set kindness goals for the month. They can reflect on their “kindness accomplishments” at the end of September.

Upper Elementary (3-5)

Friday the 13th doesn’t happen too often, so celebrate with the “Secret Code” activity in this book and take a spooky twist on this activity!

Middle School (6-8)

Ask students to create their own interactive textbook and include podcast recommendations. September 30th is International Podcast Day and you might have students explore podcast episodes connected to a social studies topic.

High School (9-12)

To celebrate the first day of fall on September 23rd, have students create math problems related to the change of seasons and graph equations inside of Book Creator for an independent or collaborative project.
