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

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. You can photocopy as large as you want and add more weather rectangles. I only put the weather that effects our country buit you can add foggy, drizzly, slushy, sand storm, hurricane, etc.
