SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 3

(0)
This resource contains: A PowerPoint lesson explaining the game in detail and including a video clip message from Hetti Teachers’ notes explaining how to play the game and giving links to the National Curriculum A 5x4 grid to photocopy for the children In this enjoyable and creative game players meet – or possibly re-meet - Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far off planet of SPaG. The game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands for Y3 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The precise elements the game covers are: forming nouns using prefixes choosing a or an before the next word expressing time using conjunctions. In playing this version of the Great Grammar Game, children will also be revisiting and revising their SPaG knowledge from previous years. Like all other versions of the game it can be played more than once, either in small groups of 5 or more, or by a whole class. The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how this activity is designed to work. Money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

Portmanteau Words - Making Sense of Nonsense
GoodeyedeersGoodeyedeers

Portmanteau Words - Making Sense of Nonsense

(0)
This resource is ideally for children in upper KS2 and lower KS3. A portmanteau word is a new word made from two already existing ones. For example, Brexit. Lewis Carroll started the fun, in the poem 'Jabberwocky'.  In the powerpoint presentation pupils meet special agent Sam, who works for SYD - Subverting Your Dictionary.  First Sam explains what portmanteau words are and gets them investigating existing portmanteaux. He then invites youngsters on a mission of verbal invention, the creation of new portmanteaux - all linked to a classic 19th Century lyric poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley. And remember - one of Carroll's words, 'chortle', did so well, most people don't realise its origins. So, not so much nonsense as new sense! All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a North West charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
Compound Nouns – Riddle-Poems
GoodeyedeersGoodeyedeers

Compound Nouns – Riddle-Poems

(0)
Here is a riddle - 'What are soft and yellow and live at the end of your arms?' The answer to this riddle is a compound noun. Children love solving riddles and also creating their own. In the PowerPoint presentation the children are introduced to a friendly alien creature called Jaxer and his alien friend Arana. Between them they talk the children through the idea of working in pairs to create a compound noun riddle-poem. This is an excellent resource for encouraging children to work in pairs. The basis of the activity is an exciting word game which is played in pairs. To play the game you are provided with a photocopiable grid of 32 squares featuring 16 different compound nouns. This material encourages the children to explore the world of compound nouns. It can be used across KS1 – KS3 to both introduce the concept of compounding to younger children and for re-visiting it in subsequent years to consolidate the children’s knowledge. This resource aims to show children that our language is interesting rather than difficult – something to play with and explore rather than feel threatened and defeated by. Look out for another ‘Goodeyedeers’ resource ‘Compound Nouns – Riddles’ where Jaxer shows you how to create some great riddles where the answer is always a compound noun. The answer to the riddle at the top of this page is – butterfingers. All the money raised from the sale of this resources is donated to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids. If you enjoy using this resource, then we would very much appreciate you leaving us a review. Many thanks.
