Digital worksheets - phonics segmenting practise

Digital worksheets - phonics segmenting practise

I'm loving using these digital worksheets in class! The children quickly became familiar with the format and now they can work independently with them, even my lowest ability. The children are are absorbed and enjoying the simple spelling activities and hey presto! - after their very first use - I started to see some recognisable CVC words in my emergent writers' subsequent work. Very exciting! The children write each word in their book or on a whiteboard before moving onto the next slide. They can be used in a range of ways in the classroom depending on the technology available to you. I've uploaded the PowerPoints onto Google drive where the children have accessed them through an ipad for early finishers. We're lucky and have LearnPads that will play the PowerPoint files, which works well for cutaway groups. Twice this week, I've put them up on the interactive whiteboard and left a sensible child in charge of a small group, leaving me free to focus on other children/activities. The child in charge not only moved on the slides when everyone was ready but also had marking pens and marked their work. This was in Year 1 and both times the children did a fantastic job! I've also been talking to our Year R teachers about using them in their writing areas on the LearnPads or on the main interactive whiteboard and we think they could work really well. And last of all, they cut down on printing and are ready to go with no prep - just present and go - perfect!

Place value mastery - Year 1 - 1 more and 1 less

Place value mastery - Year 1 - 1 more and 1 less

38 pages of Year 1 place value activities informed by the White Rose mastery document. The pages progress through concrete, pictorial and abstract activities and a teach, practise, apply approach. There are opportunities to practise with smaller numbers (0-10) and also larger numbers up to 100. A set of loop cards is included which need to be printed double-sided and cut out, as well as cards for a paired activity and plenty of worksheets. Personally, I cut out strips or blocks of the sheet to stick in the child's book so that their books aren't full of worksheets and/or half finished work. For more place value mastery resources for Year 1 take a look at: Counting forwards and backwards to 100 Counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10

Consonant blends - phonics screening check practise

Consonant blends - phonics screening check practise

Children can practise consonant blends as games with these sets of cards and create their own words by mixing and matching cards. Great preparation for the phonics check if you have identified consonant blends as a sticking point for a pupil. I find that even simple final consonant blends can trip up children, e.g. reading ulb as lub. There are two files included in this download: - initial consonant blends practise, e.g. fl, br, st - final consonant blends practise, e.g. lb, rt, sp, lm
