<p>The first file is to create a display with VCOP in large initials then the words Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation to put up next to them as a large visual reminder. The four colours were picked because highlighters are available in similar colours - you can then highlight examples of each in the different colours. You can also use these colours to highlight words in a text document. The second file is designed to be kept on tables for reference by the children. I have created it so that each sheet can be cut in half to form A5 cards then laminated. The titles follow the colour scheme used for the display and show ‘Good’ Level 1/2 examples (with the title in a pale version of the colour) and then ‘Even Better’ Level 3/4 examples (with the title in a darker version of the colour). Other topics covered: classroom display.</p>
Planning for about 3 weeks of work on Street Child. I used an enlarged version of the 'Respond to text' sheet to collect pupil responses on colour-coded post-it notes during shared reading as a model before giving them a copy to jot down their own responses.
A worksheet for children to compare numbers (identifying smallest and largest). Also focused on how to set out work in maths book (as it was one of the first lessons in the year). In Word and PDF format.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
