Adding ed to verbs - Uncle Ed

Adding ed to verbs - Uncle Ed

This is for KS1 children to help them distinguish the different sounds of the ‘ed’ suffix when added to verbs. It contains a power point presentation where children have to guess the past tense verb, write it correctly using ‘ed’ and then check it when the teacher brings in the sounds one by one. For their consolidation activity, there are three ‘ed’ cards showing the different sounds and a selection of ‘ed’ verbs. Children have to sort the verbs onto the correct cards. These can be printed onto cards and laminated so they can be reused. Please note, the list of words displayed in the preview do print out correctly on one line, they should not be split :) Any problems please contact me and I can email any files.

Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

This resource structures persuasive writing for your whole class. In the past I have used this a whole lesson and written each sentence as a class to really create an in depth piece of writing. I would ask the children for their ideas and they would collaboratively come up with ideas and then write down after sharing them with whole class. I have also cut the sentence strips out and allowed my higher attaining pupils to play around with the structure. This resource allows the lowers a structure to follow and the opportunity to write without worrying about content and structure. I hope that you enjoy using this resource and that your children’s writing is wonderful! Many thanks

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

I created this resource as part of a carousel of homophone activities. The children in my class LOVED this; it encouraged problem solving, group work and thinking logically about homophones. I printed the cards onto coloured paper, laminated them and cut them out. Children used whiteboard pens to fill in the missing word. Great fun and is a great way to make homophones fun!!

Reading AF 1-6: Level 1

Reading AF 1-6: Level 1

6 Guided Reading Assessment/Guidance Sheets to use with your younger readers. These sheets can be printed for each child to keep track of their reading abilities/areas needed to improve. How to use this product: Each week, I use a new assessment focus (AF). They are marked as *AF1- decoding of the text. *AF2- retrieving information. *AF3- deducing and inferring information. *AF4- structure and organisation of the text. *AF5- comment on the writer’s use of language. *AF6- to identify the purpose. *AF7- to relate the story to others. Each sheet contains 4-5 ‘I can’ statements in which you can shade in to mark where each child is at in terms of reading. By using one assessment focus per week of guided reading, you can see real progression in the children’s understanding of the particular questions you’re asking. Beside each ‘I can’ statement, I have put a heart shape in which the teacher shades: Green: if the child is secure in that area. Orange: if the child is emerging in that area. Red: if the child is un-secure in that particular area.
