Improving Sentence Structure

(2)
Improve sentence structure with these 40 A4 dyslexia-friendly complex sentence construction writing trails, which includes differentiation and worked examples to help add detail and interest to descriptive writing. Get your students extending their sentences, uplevelling their vocabulary and using a wider variety of ambitious sentence structures. Suitable for a range of ages and abilities, this resource scaffolds the imaginative writing of reluctant or struggling writers, while also challenging more able writers. Each card starts with a simple, boring sentence and, step-by-step, learners extend and improve it, adding elements of VCOP and other sentence improvement techniques to construct a fuller description. The worked examples could be shared on the board and perhaps printed and laminated to support less confident creative writers. Works well as a regular SPaG warm-up / starter for writing or as an early finisher task. Ideal for Key Stage 2 (KS2), especially Year 5 and Year 6, or Key Stage 3 (KS3). All files in PDF format within the Zip file. Includes: 30 trails for middle and higher ability / older students 10 worked examples for these trails 10 trails for lower ability / younger students, featuring built in examples and fewer instructions All resources are included with and without a cream background. Printing with this background could support dyslexic learners and those with other barriers to learning. Alternatively you could print the no background versions on pastel coloured paper to reduce glare. Fonts used are also dyslexia-friendly. The trails can be used as worksheets or could be laminated for regular use, with pupils recording sentences elsewhere. If blown up to A3 and laminated they work well for paired or group use, with pupils using a whiteboard pen. In building better, stronger sentences, pupils are encouraged to try more powerful verbs, interesting nouns, similes, start with adverbs or -ing and -ed words, add adjectives, drop further information into sentences using subclauses and bracket commas, use connectives to add further information etc. Check out the bundles of linked resources in which this resource is available.

PRINT AND GO! No prep, fun KS2 Christmas Editing / Proofreading SPaG puzzles worksheets (and full solutions). Ideal for busy end of term, these 6 fun Literacy / English activities provide practice of a range of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar during December. 3 puzzles were originally designed for Year 6 and 5 (P7 and P6) and 3 simpler ones for Year 3 and 4 (P4 and P5). Both sets could be used in the same class for differentiation if required. They could also be used for revision in early KS3. Versions are included with and without a festive background picture. All sentences are Christmas-themed. Now available in a good value Christmas Puzzle BUNDLE with this festive mental maths puzzle pack: Christmas Mental Maths Puzzles An engaging alternative to worksheets, these festive puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher, revision or filler tasks for this special time of year. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a Christmas-related word is revealed after completing the editing work. Each puzzle contains 20 lines of text (or 15 in the simpler ones). Pupils circle any mistakes they spot. If there are 3 or more mistakes in a single line, they highlight the corresponding letter in the grid at the bottom of the page. At the end they rearrange the highlighted letters to reveal the Christmas word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups, with pupils supporting each other and pooling their editing / proofreading skills. Pupils often forget or avoid re-reading their own work to check for errors so it is great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Some of the aspects of SPaG included: common spelling errors, full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas, colons, speech marks, proper nouns, missing words, repeated words, tenses, subordinate clauses and embedded clauses. (Not all concepts feature in the 3 simpler puzzles (Puzzles 4-6).

Jumbled Sentences KS1

3 Resources
Sentence Ordering KS1 Writing BUNDLE - 90 reusable and fun sentence building activity boards. Originally designed for Year 1 (P2) but could be used elsewhere in EYFS / Reception and Key Stage 1, depending on ability and needs. With 3 different sets here (one of which is TES RECOMMENDED), it’s ideal for differentiation. Emergent writers love lifting the words off to unscramble them to find the hidden simple sentence. With an engaging picture clue and title on each board, this word sequencing resource suits a range of learning styles. Pupils rearrange their words into the correct order on the board before writing the sentence out themselves on the lines provided, using a dry-wipe pen. They could then copy the sentence into their jotter if required. Regular practice of making sentences in this way should help pupils begin to form sentences independently. Each mixed-up sentence contains a word beginning with a capital letter to help children identify the first word and to reinforce this important punctuation rule, and a full stop (or question mark) to pick up and place at the end of their sentence. While constructing these sentences, children also learn about word order, parts of speech and about the fact that a sentence must make sense on its own. This bundle contains: A set of 30 4-5 word sentence boards A set of 30 6-8 word sentence boards A set of 30 question sentence boards Please see the individual resources for more information and instructions. Thank you for your interest. If you decide to buy them I hope your pupils have a lot of fun using them and if you can spare a moment to review them, I would be very grateful.

Full Stops / Capital Letters Cards (KS2)

(1)
Year 4, 5 and 6 revision activity to use again and again: 40 Differentiated Full Stops and Capital Letters Self-Check Sentences Cards. Grammar and punctuation revision resource for this key aspect of SPaG - editing and proofreading skills. Could be used as a regular starter or early finisher activity for Key Stage 2 (and equivalent) pupils to practise recognising where sentences begin and end in their own writing, a skill that often requires lots of consolidation. There are 30 MA / HA cards and a separate 10 Lower Ability set. They are designed to be printed back to back with the answer side (changes printed in red) so pupils can check their own work. Answer sides are in another file and these could be printed separately if you prefer not to print them on the backs. Best printed in colour, however the answers are also in bold so it will work in black and white too. (If you prefer not to print at all you can display the cards on the board as a regular whole class activity). All resources in PDF format within the Zip file. The front sides have a short, engaging paragraph with no full stops and capital letters printed. If the cards are laminated, pupils could mark on capitals and full stops in the correct places. They could also write out the text correctly in their jotters if you wish, before self-marking. Pupils will also need to capitalise proper nouns, though as the main focus of these cards is full stops and capital letters for sentence demarcation, I have kept proper nouns to a minimum. There are also some commas missing from the front side. These have been added to the answer side but are not in red as the main focus is where sentences begin and end. The Middle Ability and Higher Ability cards use the same text and therefore the same Answer Side. However, on the HA front side, instead of having the prompt box about how many sentences they should look for, it just says ‘How many sentences?’ The LA version has generally more basic sentences and shorter texts. All versions use a dyslexia-friendly font and spacing and a pastel background. All five files are also included without this background. The non-pastel background version could of course be printed on pastel paper too should you wish. Here’s a set of dyslexia-friendly creative writing prompt cards: Imaginative Story Writing Prompts Help pupils write more ambitious sentences:Improving Sentences You can get the above resources alongside this one in a money-saving bundle (see below).

Versions without this background can be found on pages 13-24. Students circle or highlight errors in each line of text. When students find lines with 3 or more errors, they take the corresponding letter from the grid at the bottom of the page. When finished, they rearrange these letters to find a hidden grammar or punctuation word. Students could complete puzzles individually, in pairs or in small groups. For differentiation you could put lower ability children into pairs, perhaps with a higher ability student. The Teacher’s Notes at the end of the file refers to these puzzles as SET A and mentions SET B (designed for Years 3 and 4). SET B will be available separately on TES (coming soon!)

A fun, flexible resource that could be used for early finisher tasks, mental starters, homework etc. They could be completed by individuals or in pairs or small groups, where they will promote important discussions about different mental strategies.

ANSWER GRIDS for all 8 puzzles are included within the file and could be printed for pupils to self-check (or displayed later on the board) and therefore cut down on your marking! Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Times Tables, Doubling and Halving, Multiplying and Dividing by 10 and 100, Fractions, Percentages and Decimals.

Analogue to Digital Time

(0)
Time puzzle worksheet (converting analogue time to 12 hour digital time) and answer key. This is a free sample from my fun, printable Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Time puzzles pack. The full pack of 9 puzzles for various time concepts at Upper KS2 (Year 5 / Year 6) and Early KS3 revision is available here – ** Time Puzzle Worksheets** The full pack also contains puzzles for telling the time to five minutes and nearest minute (analogue), converting between 12 and 24 hour time, converting between units of time (seconds, hours, minutes) and 12 hour time durations. An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these no-prep puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. They are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after the Time work has been completed. Each puzzle contains a grid. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal the hidden word. Students often forget or avoid checking their own work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. A Mega Bundle of 12 of my hidden word puzzle packs for many maths and numeracy concepts (over 70 puzzle worksheets) is available for a huge saving, while the same puzzle packs are also available in some smaller bundles: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles MEGA BUNDLE Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 1 Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 2 Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 3 For engaging, time-saving printables and presentations to plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, visit FullShelf Resources
