First Grade Antonyms - Puzzle

First Grade Antonyms - Puzzle

First Grade Antonyms - Puzzle I’ve included three different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only three pages and it is great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice with in class or at home. The larger size requires 6 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work. The extra-large size requires 18 pieces of paper. Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last for years! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 2 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 3 – 5 • The large size puzzle – Pages 6 – 11 • The extra-large size puzzle – Pages 12-29 • Questions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 30 – 32 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.

4 persuasive texts with flip charts and resources for 4 weeks KS2

4 persuasive texts with flip charts and resources for 4 weeks KS2

Four different types of persuasive texts each with it’s own Flipchart (to teach each lesson from) and mini assessments/ activities to go along side each text I have written. There is an advert for Manchester and Florida, a persuasive leaflet about child poverty and and advert for an Anti-bullying watch. All questions are linked to the content domains and use the language of the KS2 tests. Would be suitable for Years 4-6 depending on their ability. I used the flip chart and taught each skill and then allowed the children to answer the questions either in their books/ on white boards or orally depending on how long I had for each lesson. The children seemed to really enjoy the texts and had a greater understanding of persuasive texts.

Reading AF 1-6: Level 1

Reading AF 1-6: Level 1

6 Guided Reading Assessment/Guidance Sheets to use with your younger readers. These sheets can be printed for each child to keep track of their reading abilities/areas needed to improve. How to use this product: Each week, I use a new assessment focus (AF). They are marked as *AF1- decoding of the text. *AF2- retrieving information. *AF3- deducing and inferring information. *AF4- structure and organisation of the text. *AF5- comment on the writer’s use of language. *AF6- to identify the purpose. *AF7- to relate the story to others. Each sheet contains 4-5 ‘I can’ statements in which you can shade in to mark where each child is at in terms of reading. By using one assessment focus per week of guided reading, you can see real progression in the children’s understanding of the particular questions you’re asking. Beside each ‘I can’ statement, I have put a heart shape in which the teacher shades: Green: if the child is secure in that area. Orange: if the child is emerging in that area. Red: if the child is un-secure in that particular area.
