What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

SAVE 20% BY PURCHASING THE BUNDLE! 'What's The Weather?' bundle is an completely integrated unit for teaching the topic of weather. My aim was to make this unit as wide-ranging as possible to suit varied ability levels. The pack content should give teachers enough element of choice to suit students' needs. Children are often scared of thunderstorms, but they love jumping in puddles of water and looking at rainbows after a storm ends. Making observations about the weather and discussing climate are great ways to teach children about science, especially since weather is something children can easily relate to and understand. Whether it's clear and sunny or rainy and windy outside, weather and climate affect children's lives every day. It dictates our wardrobe, sometimes affects our moods. It can bring us together as a community. If students have an early curiosity in weather, not only could it help them in their Maths and Science studies in school, it may even inspire the next generation of forecasters or meteorologists! ******************************************** FILE 1: CONTENT • Cover • Weather and Climate Presentation • Weather Vocabulary Display • Weather Instruments Posters • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 2: CONTENT • Cover/Contents • Thinking Maps • Weather Discussion Cards • Weather Phenomenon Research • Weather Recording Sheets • Weather Experiments & Reports • Weather Forecasting • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 3: CONTENT The following activities use key weather vocabulary. • Cover/Contents LITERACY STATIONS • Compound Word Match • Syllable Sort • Parts of Speech Sort MATHS ACTIVITIES • Greater/Less Than Rainbows • Weather Patterning GAMES • Matching Games SIMPLE WORKSHEET ACTIVITIES, GAMES AND PUZZLES • Discussion Weather Wheel • Scrambled Weather Words • Word to Picture Match • Weather Words Missing Letters • Seasonal Weather Drawing • Alphabetical Order • Wordsearches x 2, plus keys • Weather Words Shapes • Weather Words Opposites • Favourite Weather • TOU/Credits TOTAL PAGE COUNT: 127 ******************************************** RELATED RESOURCES What's The Weather Part 1: Presentation and Display What's The Weather Part 2: Activities What's The Weather Part 3: Literacy and Maths Activities ******************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Bundles

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.

Autumn Assembly

Autumn Assembly

Autumn Assembly for Key Stage I One of a set of assemblies on the Seasons. Cast of 30 - easily adjustable up or down. It is suggested that the class teacher takes the role of narrator. Duration - around 10 minutes but can be extended with inclusion of list of suggested poems Swallows, squirrels, deer, bats, .... children! Our narrator certainly has his work cut out keeping this assembly under control! Ever tried keeping a hibernating hedgehog or two sleepy dormice awake? Or silencing a flock of Brent Geese? Just two of the tasks facing our, as always, seriously challenged narrator! Sample Text: (Dormice curl up together and drop off to sleep) Narrator: Hey you two! Not yet! Wake up! (Both dormice yawn and stretch sleepily) Dormouse 1: Is it April yet? Dormouse 2: I think I’ll leave it to May this year! Dormice: (Together) Yeah! Let’s have a lie in! Narrator: You most certainly will not! Do I look like a Dormouse babysitter? Be off with you! (Exit Bats and Dormice) (Enter Hedgehog, making loud snuffling noises; he collects up some of the leaves left behind by the children, makes a nest of them and lies down in the middle) Narrator: Aha! And who do we have here? Our first hibernating hedgehog! Hedgehog: (Huffily getting out ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign and placing it next to his nest) Can’t you read? Narrator: You’re a bit early! It’s not November yet! Hedgehog: So? (Putting on night cap) (Rubbing tummy) I’ve done enough eating! I’m ready for sleep!

Word Search and Scramble Student Activity Bundle - 67 Activities -Growing Bundle

Word Search and Scramble Student Activity Bundle - 67 Activities -Growing Bundle

Product Description These activities ensure your students don't have any downtime between activities, lessons, etc. What they are is a collection of topics, each containing an original word search and a word scramble (made, not downloaded from the internet) on common terms that maintain your student's concentration and focus between activities, as a means of extra credit, or left as a sub plan. This bundle is designed to be as cost effective as possible as each set will only cost you $0.15 so even if you don't use them all, this life-long tool is an excellent price. Due to their nature, purpose, and composition, they work very well across many grade levels. People tend to use the word searches for younger grades and the scramble for older ones but you know your classroom the best. You can use them as part of their mark, as a bonus so it's not mandatory, etc. However you choose to use it, it will ensure that your students are always busy and never idle. For stronger classes, I give the word scramble and for weaker ones, the word search. This is a growing bundle which means that new topics will constantly be added. If you purchase now, you’ll get this bundle at its lowest price as whenever I add more, the price will increase. Currently, the bundle contains 59 topics as listed below. I've included two complete topics as the sample. Please have a look to make sure they fit your classroom well.
