Whole Sch. Literacy Building Reading Stamina

Whole Sch. Literacy Building Reading Stamina

Suitable for Key Stage 3 and designed for use during Tutor Time, but would be equally suited to small group reading intervention or being used in a specialised Drop Everything and Read class, this resource helps students focus on what it is like to use and build reading stamina. Some students will breeze this because they can read for hours and some may experience what it is like for the first time to concentrate on nothing but their reading for twenty minutes. Students do a shared read (they all take some responsibility for reading a sectio to their fellow readers) and because the turn taking can be randomised, they need to pay attention throughout. Uses a short story that is paid out sentence by sentence. You can build in your school rewards for those students who watch and listen throughout, who respond to their turn promptly and don’t fidget about or try to distract themselves.

Behaviour Chart - Actions and Consequences

Behaviour Chart - Actions and Consequences

Here is an example of a behaviour chart for children who need to see visually what behaviours are acceptable, what are becoming unacceptable and what are a definite no. It can be adapted to suit the needs of the child/children but will be a good starting point. Talk through it with the child and get these children to pick the consequences and rewards with your agreement.

10 x Famous Cartoon Characters Wordsearches Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Wordsearch

10 x Wordsearches on the theme of ‘Famous Cartoon Characters’. Wordsearches are: Aladdin Angry Birds Frozen Looney Tunes Ninja Turtles Pinocchio Snow White Wacky Races Wombles Woody Woodpecker 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!
