Addie the Alien - Cursive Handwriting - Interactive Ppt and Worksheets

Addie the Alien - Cursive Handwriting - Interactive Ppt and Worksheets

The Addie the Alien is an Accelerated Learning Program that supports children absorb information quicker and retain it for longer. All the techniques have been carefully researched by neuroscientists, educational psychologists and educational experts from around the globe. This is an interactive Ppt that can be used on smart phones, tablets laptops and PCs. The program has been designed so children can get to see how they should write and can trace the outlines given by Addie. Children’s brains are all unique and they absorb information differently. It is important not to just recognise how a child learns and use that technique, but to give the child a variety of methods and allow them to find their own way. This cursive handwriting program has been designed to be used with the video, interactive PowerPoint and the worksheets. Thus using all aspects of the VARK. Visual, Auditory, Reading/Writing and the Kinesthesis. The package has been designed to be relatable to the learner. It is a fun and interactive method, in order to maximise the enjoyment of the art of writing.

Speech Sound Posters for Literacy Learning - Let's Face Phonics

Speech Sound Posters for Literacy Learning - Let's Face Phonics

These speech sound posters were created to help your students connect sound production to literacy learning. Each poster contains mouth images that show students how to get ready to produce the sound of each letter of the alphabet. I included my own version of child-friendly labels for students to remember the sounds by. In some cases, two images are used to show that the sound is made by a combination of already existing letter sounds e.g. 'x' uses the mouth images of 'k' and's'. Also included in this set are sound posters for sh, th, ch and ng. I also have keyword charts that show examples of words which bear the particular sound. I plan to use these in my kindergarten class to help my students with the learning of the basic English phonemes.

Short Adjectives: Comparative and Superlative Forms

Short Adjectives: Comparative and Superlative Forms

I’ve just finished creating 180 cards which can be used to teach comparative and superlative forms of the so-called short adjectives. If your students need more practice or if you’re looking for a complete teaching resource to help them understand comparative and superlative forms of adjectives, these cards may be exactly what you need. All of the cards are very colourful and they all contain equally colourful images that will hopefully make using the cards more enjoyable. This time I’ve created four different types of cards. The first group consists of cards with multiple-choice sentences. There are 60 cards of this type in the pack. This next type of cards includes 60 cards too. These cards, however, contain sentences with gaps. The next cards are cards with pictures. Students’ task is to look at the cards, think for a second and compare the objects/people in the pictures. There are 30 cards of this type. The final type of cards are cards containing questions with comparatives and superlatives. These questions are followed by more detailed questions so that your students get to practise both comparative and superlative forms of short adjectives as well as speaking. The pack includes 30 cards of this kind. One more thing, the cards also teach the comparative and superlative forms of ‘good’ and ‘bad’. Additionally, the cards can be used to practise the expression as…as.

Blooms questioning dartboard

Blooms questioning dartboard

A great resource to utilise questioning in class. Add your own questions to the PowerPoint which has been linked to the colour coded slides. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on which part of the target they hit.. A simple but effective starter or plenary. Note: Two versions have been included. One where challenging questions appear more frequently and one where lower order questions appear more frequently.

Fantastic Mr Fox - The Very Clever Mr Fox!

This fun and informative helps students to gain a deeper understanding of the main character in Roald Dahl’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox:’ Mr Fox himself! Students use their skills of inference and deduction in order to establish key information about Mr Fox’s character, likes, dislikes, and mannerisms. They then create a character profile using the information that they have gathered! The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through: -Considering how Roald Dahl was influenced by real-life foxes in his characterisation; - Reading and understanding extracts from the opening of Fantastic Mr Fox, in which Mr Fox's character traits are revealed; - Inferring and deducing key features about Mr Fox from across the text; - Creating a character profile for Mr Fox, utilising knowledge that they have gathered from over the course of the lesson; - Self assessing their own learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Text Detectives Worksheet (and answer sheet); - Selected extracts - Fantastic Mr Fox; - Character Profile Template (Word and PDF); - Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with a mixed-ability year 3 class, however colleagues have used them for between years 1 and 8 with some adaptations. All images are licensed for commercial use, and image rights are listed on the last page of the presentation.
