Silent Letters Wordsearch English Spelling Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Silent Letters Wordsearch English Spelling Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Silent Letters'. 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!

Initial Sound Center

Initial Sound Center

This Initial Sounds Center is a perfect center for any Reception or Year 1 classroom! At the center, students clip the letter on the clothes pin to the picture with the matching beginning sound. The beginning sounds sheets are included in colour and black & white. To organise this center, I print each letter chart with a different coloured background and then laminate. Using a different coloured marker for each clothes pin set, I write lower case letters from a to z. Each set is put in a plastic ziploc baggie. I use different coloured markers for each set of clothes pins so that students do not mix up their clothes pins. The pictures for initial sounds are as follows: a - astronaut b - boat c - car d - duck e - elf f - flower g - guitar h - helicopter i - iguana j - jar k - kite l - lamp m - money n - necklace o - otter p - pig q - queen r - rocket s - sun t - tape u - umbrella v - vegetables w - window x - x-ray y - yarn z - zipper

HOMOPHONES TEST

HOMOPHONES TEST

The aim of this PowerPoint file is to test pupils' knowledge of Homophones. All of the words used in these tests are commonly misspelt or confused with other similar-sounding words. There are two versions, in the first the pupil simply has to choose from the two words alongside each definition. The second version is a little more demanding as the choice needs to be made from a randomly-sorted list of homophones.
