Phase 4 Phonics Comprehensions - UPDATED AGAIN - 12 Texts
Education_Learning_and_WorkEducation_Learning_and_Work

Phase 4 Phonics Comprehensions - UPDATED AGAIN - 12 Texts

(0)
I created this resource after searching for (and failing to find) something similar to suit my own UK learners. The original bundle of just 6 texts has now grown for a second time to 12 texts. I think it’s now finalised, but it still could grown again if I get struck by inspiration. All progression / structure within the document is taken from UK Government Publication “Letters and Sounds”, which organises children’s exposure to new phonemes in Phases and Sets. The document here follows this as closely as possible. Great to stretch and challenge children in Reception who have a solid application of their phonics and / or for children in Year 1 and 2 who still need to practise accessing fully decodable texts. Suits Ofsted’s renewed focus on children reading full decodable texts, matched to phonics knowledge. If you download and use this resource, I’d love it if you could take the time to leave a review.
Sound Button Fonts for Phonics
Education_Learning_and_WorkEducation_Learning_and_Work

Sound Button Fonts for Phonics

(0)
This pair of fonts (Soundbuttondots & Soundbuttondashes) allow you to add dots or dashes to your writing to represent sound buttons underneath single sounds, digraphs and trigraphs. There are even special characters included to replicate the sound buttons needed to show the connection between split digraphs. Full disclosure - this is not a perfect ‘does the job for you without you having to think’ kind of font. I don’t have the technology to make the fonts do ligatures and automatically underline digraphs and trigraphs, but I have tried to make it as seamless and easy as I can. By switching between the two fonts, you can choose which letters have dots underneath and which have dashes (the spacing on the dashed letters is already condensed so the dashes form a continuous line), and you can insert special characters (or use the corresponding symbols) to add arrows for split digraphs. WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE HOW, plus full written instructions included in the pack. To my mind, this font certainly beats printing out a regular copy of work and manually adding all the sound buttons in a black pen, or trying to add dot and dash clipart underneath! We’ve all been there!

DIGITAL STICKERS BRIGHTS PACK Children love receiving stickers and we love giving them out, right? So what do we do when all our work is being set electronically?

You could even just add them as attachments in your messages over email when communicating with your class. Each filled with cheesy puns and cute graphics, they’re the perfect solution to dishing out some fun, quirky praise. Why not check out my pastel pack and fix it pack? Or the whole bundle? Included in this pack are 14 different bright stickers, each saved as high quality PNG images (re-sizeable as needed), plus all images saved within a PPT for opening in Google Slides. I have also included a brief tutorial of how to add the stickers, although there are many tutorials out there and I’m sure some of you that have been using e-learning for a while are already pros at this! Please consider leaving a review or rating - I would really appreciate it! Please note: these images are for individual use only, solely in the format of stickers. They are not for re-purposing as clipart or any other saleable product.

Maths TAF Challenges Year 2

Maths TAF Challenges Year 2

(0)
Tricky, Awesome & Fiendish Challenges Inspired by the popular ‘Chilli Challenge’ system of rating tasks of increasing difficulty these 80+ pages of “Tricky, Awesome & Fiendish” (TAF) Challenges are perfect for Year 2 Provision, Early Morning Work, or Early Finishers. They make a great alternative or added supplement to TAF worksheets, and can be used really practically when supplemented by your classroom resources, such as base ten, coins, shapes etc. Simply laminate / cut & laminate them and add to “Tuff Spot” trays or individual trays, and have iPads or tick lists on hand for recording your evidence. Not every single activity is a TAF, but every single Maths TAF is in there! The reason for the extra activities is that I wanted to have three levels of challenge available for EVERYTHING so that all children could get the most out of it. Each TAF has a small hashtag in the corner - feel free to disregard this, but I personally found it useful for tagging activities in apps like Tapestry, so I could search for all instances of that evidence (rather than tagging the full statement!).

Handwashing Song Freebie

This is just a bit of light-hearted fun during what is a pretty anxious time for kids (and adults)! Coronavirus / COVID-19 can seem really scary to little ones but it’s good to know that even basic handwashing can really help. This song reminds children about some of the things they should and shouldn’t do when washing their hands. The last verse in particular…well, we all know those little ones who are sent to wash their hands and are then immediately putting those clean hands somewhere they shouldn’t be! Bless!

MaVynee Betsch - "Rocket Says Clean Up" / "Saving American Beach" Follow On Unit

(0)
MaVynee Betsch led a full, intriguing and varied life. Most famed for her conservationism and activism, she spent her later life educating others on race and the environment. She makes for an excellent and inspirational figure to study, and can be included as part of Black History Month to ensure children know that history is being made even now. It should also link nicely with Saving American Beach (published April 2021) which can be found here and here.

Allowing for time for editing and revision on longer pieces of work, plus the inclusion of some Early Finishers activities, this unit could easily last you 2 weeks. It includes: Biographical Information PowerPoint (as PDF) A PDF of 12 different resources: Section 1: Research Links A selection of useful websites for TEACHERS Section 2: Biography Biography Writing Sheet Section 3: American Beach Flyer Poster Template Section 4: Endangered Animal Research Research sheet / prompt 3 pages to make a booklet Section 5: Eco Friendly Choices Yes or no choices with key Section 6: Acrostic Poem 2 x Acrostic templates Section 7: True or False True or false questions about MaVynee’s life Section 8: Reading Comprehension 3-way differentiated texts and questions Section 9: Vocabulary Draw and write the meaning activity Section 10: Cryptogram Crack the code to solve the message Section 11: Wordsearch Wordsearch and answers Section 12: Crossword Crossword and answers Section 13: Colouring Sheets 3 line drawing portraits of MaVynee This unit does not include planning.
