This is a 100-slide PowerPoint lesson on words ending in the suffix -tion. (English programmes of study: Years 1-3.

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

These checklists provides an academic overview of the writing curriculum content to be covered year-by-year from Year 1-6. I provided these to teachers in my own school, who marked the individual elements of the curriculum as they were covered (their aim was to ‘tick’ each element twice over an academic year). They have found it extremely useful, as it offers a useful breakdown of the curriculum statements into the individual components to be taught, which is not always as self-explanatory as one would assume! It is broken down into Composition, Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling, and Handwriting sections. Please note that the spellings listed are indicative of the patterns to be learnt - it is not the exhaustive list. Furthermore, the composition section details our interpretation of what needs to be covered over a year, some schools vary from this. For this reason, the document is provided in Word, for easy editing. It is also provided as a PDF, to prevent formatting issues between computers. Hope that this proves helpful to you too!

Year 2 information text, 3 week non-fiction unit, planned and fully resourced, tourist attraction

Talk! Drama! Reading skills! Grammar skills! Games! Writing an information text! In this three week non-fiction writing unit, children look at an information text (a poster about the now destroyed Brighton Chain Pier). Then they play with the text and create new sentences of their own, developing key Year 2 grammar skills. Finally they create an information text of their own (Brighton Palace Pier), applying the skills taught in the previous two weeks. Every resource is included and most are resources are differentiated 3 ways - there’s a lot of work here! You could easily swap the model for an attraction local to you. You could also swap the outcome to an attraction near you - the skills in this unit are all transferable. Here are the objectives covered thoroughly across the three weeks: This unit revisits Y1 grammar: I can make up sentences. I can join my ideas using ‘and’. This unit introduces new Y2 grammar concepts: I can use commas for lists. I can use questions, statements, exclamation and commands. I can use expanded noun phrases to describe and specify [for example, ‘the polished stones’]. I can add a chunk (clause) using ‘and’ (coordination) This unit introduces the following Y2 terminology: noun, noun phrase, statement, exclamation, command, adjective, verb, comma This unit introduces these Y2 composition objectives: I can write an information poster. I can plan or say out loud what I am going to write about. I can use new words (vocabulary). I can write my ideas in sentences (continued from Y1). I can make improvements and changes with the teacher or with my friends. I can re-read to check that my writing makes sense. I can proof-read to check my spelling and punctuation [Are the ends of my sentences punctuated correctly?] I can read aloud what I have written clearly and with expression. Reading skills : I can spot meaning breakdown. I can repair a meaning breakdown. Enjoy!

Rosa Lesson Plans & Activities Package, Fourth Grade (CCSS)

Rosa Lesson Plans & Activities Package, Fourth Grade (CCSS)

This set of lesson plans, resources, and activities is for use with “Rosa” by Nikki Giovanni. It can be used for whole group, small group, and independent instruction – which makes these resources a smart choice for literacy centers or Reader’s Workshop. Here’s What You’ll Get and Why: My goal was to make it easy to teach readers how to think about “Rosa” using a variety of comprehension strategies. That’s why I’ve included page by page lesson plans, guided practice worksheets, and text specific reader’s notebook prompts for the following strategies: Retelling and Summarizing Making Connections Making Predictions Visualizing Understanding Text Structure I also created an Extension Activity for early finishers. Next, I find that vocabulary instruction works best when it’s done within the context of books that students are already reading. That’s why I’ve included the following vocabulary resources: Vocabulary Word List Flash Cards (match words to definitions) Interactive Vocabulary Notebook Cards Vocabulary Word Games Printable Personal Vocabulary Word Bookmark I’ve also included a word study lesson plan and set of activities, because, much like vocabulary, I find that word study works best within context. As a result, I have identified word patterns within trade books and have developed lesson plans and resources based on the word study that can be done with specific books. The lesson plan and set of resources for “Rosa” focuses on suffix -ed and includes the following: Lesson Plan Interactive Activity Practice Page Independent Word Work This set of resources also includes the following: Running Record Assessment Common Core Aligned Comprehension Assessment Answer Keys Common Core State Standard Alignment Spanish translation of the comprehension strategy practice pages, reader’s notebook prompts (complete with Spanish Common Core “I Can” statements), and extension activities for use with Rosa BONUS: Surprise Sample Resource I hope that you will enjoy using my resources along with your copy or copies of “Rosa” by Nikki Giovanni. If you have any questions about the resources included in this set please email me at AmyMackenzie@BookPagez.com. It will be my pleasure to reply and help you in any way I can.

Football Phonics (Phase 3)

Football Phonics (Phase 3)

A set of worksheets combining Phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs with football questions. Pupils read through the sentences, with support if necessary, filling in the missing words with the options at the bottom of the page. Be careful of the red herrings, they can be discounted straight away by eagle-eyed students. Each sound has a page of football-based questions dedicated to it. Great for pupils who love their football, need some extra practice at certain sounds or as a way of introducing new sounds. This could also be done as a quick comprehension exercise or even as homework. I hope your children enjoy!
