Phonics Screening Check FUN racing game   Year 1  KS1  eyfs  Split digraphs. Real/Nonsense words

Phonics Screening Check FUN racing game Year 1 KS1 eyfs Split digraphs. Real/Nonsense words

This game is loved by my mixed R/1 class. This download includes 5 PDF documents with 4 pages (20 boards in all). Each split digraph a_e , e_e, i_e , o_e and u_e have been split into three levels of difficulty and the middle ability has a copy with the sounds highlighted to further differentiate. The pupils simply roll die and then move car and say word they land on. These sounds are ideal to cover if you are working on phase 5 or set 3 RWI phoncis schemes. This can be used as a whole class activity / starter or with 1:1/group interventions. The interactive Smartboard game uses a die that only goes up to 3. This makes it a snappy but not too long a game. Children could play best out of three or you could use the game boards to set out a mini competition/tournament around the classroom. It’s also great wen doing transport as a theme and to check and stretch learning. I’ve included the word documents so that you can edit and create your own words. Great revision activity for the upcoming phonics screening. No real preparation needed. Simply print and use. You only need toy cars or a playing piece and a die. I really hope you and your class enjoy this as much as my class do. Please leave feedback if possible :) Thanks

It is fully editable so please feel free to add/remove terminology or create your own version. This resource includes 2 worksheets in which the children must solve what term is what and then write an example. They must finally find the terminology token and stick in correct box of the sheet. Hope this helps! Thanks.

Poetry Comparison (Using Bloom's Taxonomy) Feedback Sheet-including FAR marking

Poetry Comparison (Using Bloom's Taxonomy) Feedback Sheet-including FAR marking

A quick and easy way to give VERY SPECIFIC feedback without copious amounts of writing. Simply glue the sheet in under the student’s work. Tick the relevant criteria, set targets quickly and ensure the student has read your marking by getting them respond to in the student response section. This assessment sheet is ideal for marking drafts and final copies of exam preparation essays. It can be used with KS3 and KS4. It corresponds with the FAR marking policy = Feedback - Action -Response. i.e. Stage 1: The teacher gives FEEDBACK using very specific criteria which should be shared with students before the assessment takes place. Stage 2: The teacher uses the criteria to specify which ACTIONS the student needs to take to get to the next grade. Stage 3: The student writes a written RESPONSE to the teacher’s comments about the ACTIONS required to reach the next stage. It’s very useful for showing progress, communicating attainment on HW or timed (in class) essays that form part of exam preparation revision.

Bee Phonics Fun Phonics Game

Bee Phonics Fun Phonics Game

Bee Phonics is a great tool to help students master reading. It contains eight variants of a phonics board. Four of the variants contain writing lines. First, students say each sound of a word very slowly and then they read the whole word quickly. Once they’ve done it, they get a nectar point. They need to collect at least 9 nectar points to win. I’ve created a couple of versions of the nectar points and the boards where students place their points. The file also includes phonics tiles with blends, digraphs, trigraphs and other letter combinations. This means that you can create lots of different words using them.
