VCOP flashcards for display

VCOP flashcards for display

Easy flashcards that can be used as table mats when printed A5, or as a display that children can access easily. I bluetacked mine so my children could choose the one they wanted take it back to their desk for spelling purposes. I also used whiteboard markers to star certain words especially connectives that i suggested were applicable for that genre. Vocab ones we also had blank ones so children could write their own words to add to the display

Formal letter writing peer assessment and self improvement checklist

Formal letter writing peer assessment and self improvement checklist

I have attached a checklist to give pupils when they are practising their formal letter assessments. It includes SPAG, structure and DAFOREST for content. In addition to this checklist, there is also a peer assessment grid for pupils to stick in after they have completed their letter, they can then swap and mark each other on what they have included.

Spelling and grammar quiz with punctuation pyramid practice.

Spelling and grammar quiz with punctuation pyramid practice.

This Powerpoint quiz revises plurals, commas, apostrophes for contractions, adverbs and also allows pupils to demonstrate their knowledge of a variety of punctuation marks. There is a passage for the audience to decipher which has lots of deliberate spelling mistakes in it. This is just one in a series of similar quizzes which can be found in my shop and which , when used on a regular basis , will help to raise levels of achievement. I include a word document which could be used as a homework task where pupils are asked to demonstrate their use of a variety of punctuation marks. All answers are provided for ease of marking.

Pronouns

Pronouns

This resource is made with a Harry Potter theme. Children are introduced to the term pronouns through a short Harry Potter clip where they can hear how badly pronouns are needed in spoken language as well as written. I have made differentiated work resources for the children to use for low ability, middle ability and high abililty- all still based on the Harry Potter Theme. Children are encouraged to work in groups throughout this lesson to try and practice using pronouns on whiteboards, before their activity. Using a Harry Potter theme worked well in my class as it fun, colourful and different from their normal SPAG lessons, which can sometimes be boring. I have included a powerpoint, worsheets and a detailed plan with this package.
