These coaching bookmarks can be used during paired or buddy reading. They provide a series of steps that the students can work through when their 'buddy' gets stuck on a word. It provides the opportunity for both students to reflect on the decoding strategies that they use, as well as reminding them of some others that they could try.
These 20 Buddy Reading Task Cards cover the basic parts of a story that you would want your students to know as well as some interesting discussion starters for them.

I made the Task Check Off cards real simple since the tasks require talking, not writing. You can photocopy them for one time use with pencil or print & laminate them to reuse with Vis-a-Vis markers.
I have made this for a little awards ceremony for all my children on completing the phonics screening! They actually really enjoyed it despite all the negative press and I think they will love earning a certificate for it :)
Based on the widely acclaimed book "Make It Stick" by Peter Brown et al, these resources are designed to support students with independent learning and guidance on how to revise properly, in order to make the learning "stick". Included are guides for KS3 and KS4/5.
The accompanying ppt is for delivery by tutors, but could also be utilised by teachers.
This bundle provides a variety of end of term activities for children of all ages. Colouring books, a word search, whole class game, visuals, quiz and a maths game. The summer is nearly here. Enjoy it when it arrives!
A poster I made to encourage independent learners. It instructs students on the chain of action if/when they become stuck with their work.
I have found the poster particularly effective with more needy Year 7 and 8 classes but it works with any and all groups.
