The Simpsons - Murder Mystery

The Simpsons - Murder Mystery

Contains a PowerPoint and worksheet based around The Simpsons, a Murder Mystery.

They must then infer and make connections between the information and decide who they thought the killer was and why using evidence to back up their ideas. This is perfect as a way of showing children how to get important information. It is also extremely fun and engaging.

Video Rose by Jacqueline Wilson - Unit of Work

You will get files in a Word document as well as PDF format so it is easily editable. This will save you hours of work! This resource contains a range of vocabulary and quality discussion questions for each section of the novel. It also includes a choice of follow-up tasks children could complete as they read the book. It is designed to last 7 weeks, however it can be adapted to suit your learners. I have used it in my classroom following the Highland Literacy Project’s way of organising reading in the upper primary classroom. Children engage in reading 3 times per week: Session 1 - Pupils discuss the text, read the set pages independently and look up new vocabulary from the pages they have read. Session 2 - Pupils discuss the pages read with their group and the teacher. Session 3 - Pupils complete a follow-up task based on their book to demonstrate further understanding. When I have used this, I have printed a few pages of the document to share between pupils in the reading group. For Week 1, Session 1 - pupils use page 1 of the document. For Week 1, Session 2 - pupils use page 2 of the document. For Week 1, Session 3 - pupils have completed follow-up tasks in their jotters. I hope you find this resource useful, however you choose to use it!

Frayer Model Graphic Organizer (20 Pre-Made Models Included!!)

This is a modification that I created of the original Frayer Vocabulary Model. It is best used digitally. Though it is in PDF, you can easily use programs such as DocHub to easily make it interactive. My Frayer Model has the following features: 1. Term name 2. Pre-Self Metacognitive Assessment (How well do they think they know the meaning of the term Scale 1-4) 3. The term used in context from the text. (You can change this section to a picture or video with a video link.) 4. Wring the meaning of the term in their own words (Student DOES NOT LOOK UP THE DEFINITION.) 5. Researching a picture or video of how the student sees the meaning of the term (picture and/or video) 6. Synonyms of the term 7. Antonyms of the term 8. Writing how the term is used in the real world (complete sentence) 9. Mid-Self Metacognitive Assessment (How well do they think they know the meaning of the term Scale 1-4) 10. Writing the definition of the term in their own words. 11. Final-Self Metacognitive Assessment (How well do they think they know the meaning of the term Scale 1-4). I have included an example Frayer Model and 20 blank templates for your usage. Enjoy!!

Read year 2 common exception words running record

Read year 2 common exception words running record

Reading created with the year 2 common exception words built in. Can be used as a running record - listen to a child read and tick off the words they are able to read. Each paragraph contains just 90 words that can be timed to ensure children can read 90 words in a minute. A fantastic piece of evidence for moderation.
