Nursery Rhyme Characters Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Nursery Rhyme Characters Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Nursery Rhyme Characters’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Commonwealth Games 2018 Word Search Find

Commonwealth Games 2018 Word Search Find

The Commonwealth Games 2018 are almost upon us. Build up the excitement with your students with this word search. My class wanted a challenge so I gave them one. This Commonwealth Games word search is huge. Personally I printed it off on A3 paper as it has all of the 70 Nations and Territories that are attending the Commonwealth Games in 2018. I actually “buddied up” some of my struggling students to keep them focused as 70 words takes time. My others loved the competitive challenge. Enjoy

Drawing Out Of Chaos: Sample

Drawing Out Of Chaos: Sample

Hi! This is a sample of one of my current projects - I have been using modular exponentiation to create regular line drawings for anybody to colour in. (of varying difficulties) This pack contains 9 drawings selected from my vast catalogue that can be used everywhere from classrooms to coffee tables, perhaps as a therapeutic activity to start off the day for your students. Please leave a review so I know what you think of them, and whether I should add more - after all, there are more of these drawings than there are atoms in the universe. Hope you enjoy! Harry
