ConnectivesQuick View


Really useful 10 min warm up activity in a Literacy lesson. Teaching children to avoid using boring words like ‘and’ ‘but’. Instead to use other connectives. I just put this up on the interactive whiteboard and so one activity a day at the beginning of my lesson and go through the examples with the children. They look at the sample questions and correct the ‘boring’ sentences. Really easy to follow. Topics also inlcuded: langauge choice; narrative texts.

Connect 4 Shapes gameQuick View

Connect 4 Shapes game

Connect Four / Four in a row: This is a great game that I use all the time in my classroom. It is perfect for maths stations (or maths centers in the US!). Usually this game is for two players but my game has more numbers and can therefore be played by up to four children. What the children will need to play the game: 1 dice, one colour each per child. How to play: 1. Roll the dice. 2. Count the dots on the dice. 3. Colour in a shape that has that number of sides. 4. The first player to get four in a row wins the game! Shapes: Circle, semi-circle, triangle, square, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon. This game may be played using colours but it can also be played using different coloured counters. It may also be laminated so the children can use whiteboard markers for the game, which can then be wiped off!
