3 Phonics Rhymes, for i (iy), ar, er - EY/KS1, original.

Engaging rhymes are great for introducing phonics, and for re-inforcing and making them meaningful. I’ve made up these 3 rhythmic, rhyming poems to enhance phonics teaching for the sounds ‘i’ as in ‘mice’, ‘ar’ and ‘er’. The rhymes feature mice (and their ice cream and rice slices), farm yard charms (cows in barn, chicks in yard, cat in cart…), and an action rhyme, twirling, whirling, swerving… like various moving things. Early Years and KS1 children will all enjoy and benefit from these rhymes, which can be listened to, chanted, clapped and enacted.

4 Colour Rhymes - green, pink, blue, silver/gold, EY, KS1-2 - original

These punchy, fun rhymes each celebrate a colour, listing and describing different items of that colour in ways that bring it to life for children. The ‘green’ one is an action rhyme; the others are best read aloud. Invite further item suggestions for extra verses - they don’t need to rhyme, provided you can sustain the rhythm. Pick one of these to start a phonics, poetry or descriptive writing lesson. Children from Early Years to upper KS2 will find them thought-provoking and stimulating.

Male & Female Animal Names

Male & Female Animal Names

My Male & Female Animals Names actually uses a familiar 3-part card approach to introducing the nomenclature in a way that is very familiar to the young Montessori reader. They do enjoy the visual images quite a lot, so it seems to be a logical first step before the traditional presentation of masculine and feminine. (Which I do intend to get to someday! So many ideas, so little time!) Here is a variety of 20 animals that children will enjoy looking at, talking about and learning new names…some of which are sure to give the giggles. I made enough examples that you should be able to easily make several rotations of the materials over time. To make, just print on card stock, cut and laminate if you wish. Thanks so much for considering my work! Mary

Rhyming couplet frames, 'Seabed Rhymes', KS2

Children love rhymes, but they can be tricky to construct, so this resource provides 4 structured rhyme frames on the theme ‘seabed’, with a sheet of tips and examples to help them along. Suitable for Yrs 5/6 working mostly independently, and for Yrs 3/4 with teacher support. However, all will benefit from a whole-class rhyme produced together, chanted and clapped to check rhythm, and written up on the board as an example. Year 2 would also enjoy a shared rhyme challenge, using a selected verse from the sheet. The resource supports literacy, especially poetry and linguistics, developing language dexterity and control of rhyme and rhythm. It would also support any topic related to sea, pirates, holidays, maritime history or the environment. Contents: 2 sheets, black-and-white, PDF.
