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.
I designed this to give to students in my house who had been nominated as 'stars' of the term by their tutor. It could be used by head of years too if you edit the resource. I photocopied it onto coloured card and then the tutors of the winning students pinned the certificates on tutor boards. Hope it helps you in rewarding students in your year, house or tutor group.
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!

Including full exploration of the speech and Shakespeare's views/context with a focus on migration.

To say THANK YOU to all my TES friends and followers I've created a bunch of $2.00 packets! This one centers on the reading skill of main idea and details. This 20+ page packet contains all sorts of graphic organizers aimed at helping your primary students master the main idea, or "big picture," and details. <br />
I hope you enjoy these graphic organizers as much as my students do. Finding the main idea is an important skill so these are specifically designed to help ensure mastery of that concept.<br />
