NEW Kinder Math Centre Activity Idea NUMBER WHEELS Many Tasks Counting Numbers 0-10

This activity is suitable for preschoolers and Kinder kids learning to count, read and write numbers, dice patterns, number words, tally marks, dominoes etc. This is a collection of 10 wheels; Math resources to teach children all about numbers 0-10. Each wheel has a different skill or concept. It encourages them to play, learn and enjoy MATH. THE CIRCLES INCLUDE; * Numerals 0-10 in a normal font * Numerals 0-10 in a dotted font for tracing * Numerals 0-10 in a fun, artistic font * Dice patterns 0-10 * Dominoes * Playing Cards * Tally Marks 0-10 * Bugs to count * Blocks or e whatever you have cubes to count * Numerals as Words to read * Graphic of fingers counting I use numbered pegs, for children to match to a wheel, each wheel involves a different skill, eg counting images, reading words, recognising numbers. I use counters, pom poms or buttons, so children can match the numbers, words etc on the wheel. I have very small pegs so children clip the appropriate number to each section. I have written number words on a set of pegs too, so sometimes the children use these to either match the word wheel, or later to match any wheel. The activities are many! You can use whatever you have for students to complete tasks: counters, pegs, beads etc.

Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

PowerPoint presentation which details a simple instruction writing model - 'How to Clean Your Teeth' with a clear and concise layout. Each slide is colourful and engaging and allows a teacher to explain the instruction genre. Also included are sequencing, cut and stick flashcards. Children may assemble the instructions as a paired activity cutting and pasting sequentially onto sugar paper. This task is ideal for reinforcement and will support less secure learners in an active way. This can be used and easily adapted for other simple instruction models- e.g. How to make a sandwich These resources promote an active approach to writing instructions. They complement other resources within my shop - 'Writing Instructions- Introducing the Genre in an Active Manner' and Writing Instructions - 'How to Build a Snowman' which has additional literacy tasks included. I have included several slides within the preview to allow teachers to peruse the resource more comprehensively. Hope your earners enjoy the lesson and tasks. Many thanks for free use clip art provided by http://www.clipartlord.com

Rainforest Poetry

Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
