SPELLING GRID GAME

SPELLING GRID GAME

Excel worksheet that produces a 9 letter grid to play spelling/word making games on an interactive whiteboard. I use this as an assembly starter activity for junior assemblies but it could just as easily be used as a lesson starter or end of day game. Just click on the change button to produce a new grid to play with. Favourite games with my pupils are longest word, unique word, most 3/4/5 letter words etc. Rules are simple - you can use each letter only once and you must use the middle letter in your word. You can make your own rules of course! I use a minute sandtimer as I can’t work out how to make a countdown timer in Excel.

The Cat in the Hat Lesson Plans & Activities Package, Second Grade (CCSS)

The Cat in the Hat Lesson Plans & Activities Package, Second Grade (CCSS)

This set of lesson plans, resources, and activities is for use with “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss. It can be used for whole group, small group, and independent instruction – which makes these resources a smart choice for literacy centers or Reader’s Workshop. Here’s What You’ll Get and Why: My goal was to make it easy to teach readers how to think about “The Cat in the Hat” using a variety of comprehension strategies. That’s why I’ve included page by page lesson plans, guided practice worksheets, and text specific reader’s notebook prompts for the following strategies: Retelling and Summarizing Visualizing Asking Questions Understanding Text Structure Synthesizing I also created an Extension Activity for early finishers. Next, I find that vocabulary instruction works best when it’s done within the context of books that students are already reading. That’s why I’ve included the following vocabulary resources: Vocabulary Word List Flash Cards (match words to pictures and match words to definitions) Interactive Vocabulary Notebook Cards Vocabulary Word Games Printable Personal Vocabulary Word Bookmark I’ve also included a word study lesson plan and set of activities, because, much like vocabulary, I find that word study works best within context. As a result, I have identified word patterns within trade books and have developed lesson plans and resources based on the word study that can be done with specific books. The lesson plan and set of resources for “The Cat in the Hat” focuses on Rhyming Word Families and includes the following: Lesson Plan Interactive Activity Practice Page Independent Word Work This set of resources also includes the following: Running Record Assessment Answer Keys Common Core State Standard Alignment BONUS: Surprise Sample Resource I hope that you will enjoy using my resources along with your copy or copies of “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss. If you have any questions about the resources included in this set please email me at . It will be my pleasure to reply and help you in any way I can.

Changing How We Use Energy

Changing How We Use Energy

In this lesson students find out which appliances in their classroom use energy and work together to create agreements for the classroom about switching off and adjusting these appliances. The lesson ends with students making informative stickers for these appliances. Students will use comprehension strategies to build literal meaning about key ideas and information in texts. They’ll be able to identify way to reduce energy use of items in class, clearly express instructions about how to use an appliance and work in groups to plan a text.

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Includes 12 'storyboard' Nursery Rhymes: The Grand Old Duke of York, Row Row Row Your Boat, Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Miss Muffet, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Bo-Peep, Hickory Dickory Dock, Pat-a-cake and Itsy-bitsy Spider. Say the rhymes with the students, get them to listen and recite each line afterwards, ask them to order the 4 pictures for each nursery rhyme, then use the differentiated worksheets to assess their writing and listening skills. For the speaking, listening and writing worksheets we ask carers to let us know either during drop off or via email a couple of things their child has done over the weekend. We then ask the students what they did at the weekend, prompting other students to ask questions of their peers, and then do a recap by asking who did what to assess who was listening before getting the children to write either with help or independently what they did at the weekend.
