Fun SPAG Grammar activity KS2 Year 3&4

Fun SPAG Grammar activity KS2 Year 3&4

This takes a little prep to do but my children enjoyed the freedom of moving about to get the tokens and match them to the definition of the term. It is fully editable so please feel free to add/remove terminology or create your own version. This resource includes 2 worksheets in which the children must solve what term is what and then write an example. They must finally find the terminology token and stick in correct box of the sheet. Hope this helps! Thanks.

Understanding passive voice

Understanding passive voice

The resource aims to help pupils to understand passive voice. As a first activity pupils are asked to decide which of two synonymous sentences are passive and which are active. They have to identify the verb and list it for each sentence which gives them the active and the passive form of verbs in a range of tenses. A grammar information sheet summarises the main points. The “Active into passive machine” worksheet with an example and a blank version can be used by pupils to transform active sentences into passive sentences. The worksheets are within the wider context of diaries. This is suitable for: • The whole class • EAL students (advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Individual students who need to catch up

Two Bingo Games based on Prefixes and Suffixes.

Two Bingo Games based on Prefixes and Suffixes.

Each game has a Master Copy that gives you the meanings of the affixes. These affixes are based predominantly on the Schwa sound or consonant or vowel digraphs. Each game has eight different bingo cards. Differentiate as required but it is best to elicit the affixes e.g. “Next is a prefix which means life or living things.” If you need to name the affix you could request a spelling or a word that incorporates the affix. This is a great resource to improve: reading, spelling, ambitious vocabulary; use of: parts of speech, prefixes and suffixes. Bingo as a ten minute plenary helps to revisit the set of affixes covered in the Literacy / Lexicology lesson. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk
