We have a real shortage of decodable reading books for beginner readers at my school and with no chance of any more being bought I've decided to have a go at making my own.
I've started by making this animals set. It starts with a book with simply the animal names, then goes on to introduce more words. All are decodable. There is no punctuation as the focus is on blending the words. With children that are really struggling to read the idea is they can take one of these books as their reading book and they will really succeed with it which will be a confidence boost. I will be making more books with different themes and will upload these as I make them.
If you have any ideas of themes for these books please write in the comments and I'll do my best to make them

Watch the video to see how this cooperative learning structure works.
Revision game on the topics of personal information, house and school. You can add to it easily depending on the number of students in the class or the amount of cards you want them to have. For extra challenge, they read out the questions as they are but have to come up with their own answers.
Key words: biscuits, cookies, cakes, recipes.
A little booklet with Biscuit (cookies) recipes along with a few cakes in the last few pages. Simple and easy to make for all ages. The first recipe can easily be used with your group of Nursery or Reception children. You can also use the recipes on an interactive white board for a large group to see or print it up for individual use. Have fun!
I am starting a new class so need some new posters to put up and fill in. These are for Word Families. I left these blank as my students are Engish Addional Language and their level is most likely different from yours---and you could use them for whatever you like. There are mini instructions in the margin area of the posters. Two posters to each A4 sheet of paper.
Here's a weather chart that I made for my class of English Additional Language kids. The weather chart can be used for any age students. Basic instructions are on the front page.
