This set of activities is designed for young pupils with limited English, but the writing frames can also be used with pupils who have some expressive writing ability.
After watching The Snowman, pupils can retell the story using vocabulary cards or drawing/writing frames. I also included a 'design a snowman&' activity, an invitation to a snowman party, and a set of &';noses' for playing &'pass the nose&';! The photo pack might be useful if you live in an area where it doesn’t snow. If you like my resources, please leave me a comment! For more, see www.earlyyearsenglish.wordpress.com
You need to down load and print perhaps making the fish a little bigger - laminate and then play - fish all have the phase 2 and 3 sounds. There are also a few hfw.
You can either put little paper clips on to the fish or magnetic string - you will also need to make rods we made them from dowling - string and a round magent that had a hole in the centre.
If you have used the One Snowy Night power point then this lovely game supports learning the story through questioning in a Bingo board game.
If this is useful please leave feedback it does help thank you
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
Poke Cards are super easy to use, tactile, engaging and self-checking!
There are 138 cards included in this set covering pronouns, adverbs, and prepositions.
Students simply choose their answer and turn over to see if they were right! I use these for my classes higher up the school as a revision aid for word classes or for an introduction lesson for younger students.
These are simply designed with high school students in mind - no childish clip art for those kids who are too cool for that sort of thing!
Please be aware that there is some preparation needed beforehand including cutting and laminating, but once completed you have a resource that can be used over and over again!
