A single video taken from the ‘SpellZebub’ collection of videos that help children learn common words by breaking them into letter and spelling patterns, taking the mystery out of spelling by providing alternative ways to visualise and memorise words.
Each video includes a catchy dance, hip-hop or dub-step backing track for multi-sensory learning which helps children to feel the spelling rhythm and enjoy their spelling experience.
Simple to use mp4 videos
No preparation needed
Quick and flexible – great for lesson starters, introducing word work or as a plenary
Supports multi-sensory learning: visual, auditory and movement
Includes spelling rhymes, chants and examples of usage
Plenty of repetition to consolidate learning

Put them on the school shared drive or upload to the VLE for all to use
A simple rhyming mothers day song for infant children with sheet music provided. Includes alternative words for an adaptation called 'You're Special' which therefore makes it not exclusive to Mums.
Your can hear the tune and download the midi file as a backing track directly from my website link (it's a free educational poetry website)
I have other brand new mothers day poems and songs on tes, but you'll find them all together on my website
As a Head of House, I used to get each of my tutors to nominate a star of the week from their tutees. This would be done without the students' knowledge. Then, each week I would display their names on this PowerPoint and it would scroll round as the students arrived. Each student got extra house points as a result.
An editable 'Pen Licence' for teachers to give to pupils.
The 2 parts of the licence can be stuck together to create a card to give to the pupils. In my class, we have a picture of each child (instead of the clipart) on the front so it looks a little more like a real licence.
Not perfect by any means but hopefully a good starting point for anyone searching for something for their own class!
