I use these in guided reading sessions. As children read the story they plot the feelings of the character writing a note next to each point. Nice activity to do individually and then compare at the end of a session.
A rota and resources for what I use every guided reading time.<br />Split the children into small groups (identified by colour).<br /><br />Activities included:<br />-Noughts and Crosses- pinched off somebody on here- thank you. Children have these printed off and they select their own activity.<br />-Listening Station- Audio cds.<br />-Non-Fiction Text- children select their own non-fiction text and complete the booklet (again needs to be printed off for them each)<br />-Activity Cards- Children pick one of these out of a feely bag at the beginning of each session and complete.<br />-Book Review- Complete sheet provided ( I print off a pack and leave them in a tray for them to help themselves)<br />-Free Reading- children can pick any of the previous activities or just read quietly. They somehow think this is a real treat!<br />Hope this saves somebody their weekend!
<p>This is a purse with 1p coins and a price tag. Can be used for mental starters on the Interactive Whiteboard. The tag represents how much money needs to go in the purse and the students drag and drop coins inside.</p>
We created this resource for year one to sort out and discuss artifacts and modern objects related to London.<br /><br />They were intended for small group work, but could be stuck into books or used on a whiteboard.
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.
