Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

This resource structures persuasive writing for your whole class. In the past I have used this a whole lesson and written each sentence as a class to really create an in depth piece of writing. I would ask the children for their ideas and they would collaboratively come up with ideas and then write down after sharing them with whole class. I have also cut the sentence strips out and allowed my higher attaining pupils to play around with the structure. This resource allows the lowers a structure to follow and the opportunity to write without worrying about content and structure. I hope that you enjoy using this resource and that your children’s writing is wonderful! Many thanks

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

I created this resource as part of a carousel of homophone activities. The children in my class LOVED this; it encouraged problem solving, group work and thinking logically about homophones. I printed the cards onto coloured paper, laminated them and cut them out. Children used whiteboard pens to fill in the missing word. Great fun and is a great way to make homophones fun!!

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.

Speed Sounds Set 2 (Read Write Inc) Word Frames

Speed Sounds Set 2 (Read Write Inc) Word Frames

I have developed these for my SEN class to reinforce vowel digraphs and trigraphs, but could easily be used for mainstream Key Stage 1 to reinforce phonics. I introduce them during our (adapted) Read Write Inc sessions and then the children work on them independently in their Bays as a TEACCH task. The base cards can be presented to the children separately or laminated and put together as a Folder Task. As the first stage I printed the word frames with just the vowel di/trigraphs missing then when the children were confident filling them in I presented them with the frames with all the letters missing and the different sounds on separate laminated cards. As an extension the children could be given the blank frames to write the letters in themselves. If the sheets are laminated they can use a white board pen and the cards used over and over again.

Phonics fun racing board game. Year 1 EYFS Early reading au oi ear ea & ar sounds Key Stage 1

This resource includes 5 game boards and the sounds au, oi, ear /ur pronunciation of ear, ar and ea. There is a mixture of nonsense and real words on each board. For best results print A3! I have asked children to select their playing piece from a basket of cars and used a large foam die! just to add a twist and gimmick to it. I have used these with a class of 20 plus but found they are great for use in interventions and 1:2:1 teaching. Each board takes roughly 20 mins to play with 3 players. In the past I’ve held small competitions to see who won overall. Hope your class love this game! Thanks
