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.

Night Time Presentation and Visual Story Prompts, Fun Story and 31 Activities

Night Time Presentation and Visual Story Prompts, Fun Story and 31 Activities

I have collected together my night time resources to make a lovely lesson starting with a night time story, followed by things we see in the night and a night time writing prompt. I have also included a teacher guide to show teachers how to use these Photo Flash cards in 31 different teaching activities in the classroom. These activities are easy to arrange, lots of fun and will improve your students' vocabulary and memory skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the images. You could print off and laminate the images to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated images and create them into a story . The images could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
