Watch Out for the Dragon! Descriptive writing sheet, 3 grades: R, Y1, Y2

Watch Out for the Dragon! Descriptive writing sheet, 3 grades: R, Y1, Y2

Watch out for the dragon - but what sort? Scary? Crazy? Hot and spiky? Red, green, wild, funny? Your Reception and KS1 children will be eager to express their ideas, both out loud and in writing. Never mind if their word is hard to spell - they can sound it out and give it a go, building confidence in their writing skills as they go. Not that dragons have to be scary, of course - ‘Watch out for the kind or friendly dragon!’ would be equally valid - as in: don’t miss him/her. The gender can also be changed. There are 3 versions here, of graded difficulty, the last inviting describing words for spikes and scales too, and ideas for the dragon’s favourite food. NB (1) Please note that my hand-drawn illustrations are sketchy. However, in my experience, children don’t mind or notice this. NB (2) Older/abler Yr 2s will welcome further lines, perhaps inviting similes, e.g. He’s as hot as a… or [colour] … as a. These could be squeezed in or written on the back, or the sheet could be manually adapted. More advanced versions coming here in due course.

The Real Boat Teaching Ideas for the Klaus Flugge Prize Shortlist 2018

The Real Boat Teaching Ideas for the Klaus Flugge Prize Shortlist 2018

Teaching Ideas for the Klaus Flugge Prize Shortlist 2018 Set up to honour Klaus Flugge, founder of Andersen Press, this award is for the most promising & exciting newcomer to children’s picture book illustration. Title: The Real Boat Author: Marina Aromshtam Illustrator: Victoria Semykina Publisher: Templar These notes have been written by the teachers at CLPE to provide schools with sessions which focus on the importance of illustration in building a narrative and supporting children’s response. They build on our work supporting teachers to use picture books to enhance critical thinking and develop creative approaches in art and writing. The teaching notes show you how to use picture books with your class to enhance children’s reading comprehension and understanding of how to convey messages through illustration. We hope you find them useful. Before beginning this sequence: Collect together a range of art materials that will allow the children to engage in the activities exploring illustration, for example: cartridge paper, watercolour paints, poster paints, oil and chalk pastels, coloured pencils, tissue paper, white wax crayons or masking fluid, quality paintbrushes of different sizes, scraper sticks, scissors and glue.

Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl Whole Class Guided Reading Sequence Activities

This is for using the strategy for whole class guided reading, explained here: https://www.teachertoolkit.co.uk/2017/11/10/guided-reading/ This is to go alongside the book Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. The book is divided into five sections, and each section has a list of vocabulary with an attached powerpoint; a section retell; guided reading questions and answers and two extension activities. It was aimed at my higher Year 2 children, but has enough breadth that it could be used in Year 3 and Year 4. It covers the following National Curriculum learning objectives: -develop pleasure in reading, motivation to read, vocabulary and understanding by: listening to, discussing and expressing views about a wide range of contemporary and classic poetry, stories and non-fiction at a level beyond that at which they can read independently -becoming increasingly familiar with and retelling a wider range of stories, fairy stories and traditional tales -drawing on what they already know or on background information and vocabulary provided by the teacher -making inferences on the basis of what is being said and done -answering and asking questions -predicting what might happen on the basis of what has been read so far -using dictionaries to check the meaning of words that they have read -checking that the text makes sense to them, discussing their understanding, and explaining the meaning of words in context
