Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight writing genre headers to display around the classroom underneath an example of each piece of student work. Below is a simple example of each in a few sentences based on a stretch my class learned in their P.E class. The children sorted the short pieces of writing by pairing them with each of the 8 writing genres. This was a great activity to get them to think about the different writing genres we will be working on this year and how each is different.

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
