This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
Save yourself HOURS of work with this lovely interactive resource pack providing practice materials for the pseudo words that children will encounter during the year one phonics screening check. <br />
The pack contains 2 colourful PowerPoint presentations, 2 sets of printable flash cards, a lesson plan and an activity sheet. The resources would provide a numerous lesson and can be used year on year. <br />
The pack focuses solely on the pseudo words as in my experience, these tend to be the words children find most challenging in the check, even for able readers. <br />
The materials have been carefully prepared following the principles of the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) screening checks, ensuring a broad coverage of sounds including vowel digraphs and common consonant blends.

Inspired by Pokémon Go's use of maps, this curriculum gets students coming back to school this fall outside observing nature. The curriculum activities can be used at all grade levels and for all abilities. It includes school activities, as well as flipped classroom activities at home.
To teach observation, investigation, and presentation skills using integrated curricula to become more aware of natural phenomena in neighborhood and school environments and how to use science, math, geography, and oral/written descriptive language to study, record, and share environmental information and understanding.
1. Students will observe natural phenomena (birds, trees, and in SchoolZone and MyZone).
2. Students will record information collected and synthesize through scientific thinking based on observation, research, inquiry, and presentation.
3. Students will work in pairs/groups to record, assess, and synthesize data, using research and observations made during investigations of their natural environments.
SEPTEMBER - a make and read small book
Print a single A4 page for each child to trim and fold into an 8-page book. There are 5 pages with text only, and 3 pages with illustrations and text. The book is about the ripening of fruit and seeds in the autumn, the migration of some of our summer birds, Quarter Days and Michaelmas still being heard in a flower name. Each child can complete the book with drawing and colouring.
The guide (Fold the September book) suggests activities for a mixed ability group: reading (8y Reading Age); finding further information about the nature notes and talking about their own experiences. Each child can prepare a cover which will wrap round the book and give space for adding decoration, a title, author, date, contents/index, author’s notes and blurb. There is the opportunity to master some of the language of giving instructions. Children (and adults!) will like the small size and the ‘magic’ of making a book from just one sheet of paper.
