This resource is a collection of task cards that show the first three stages of a growing number pattern. On each task card there is space for the student to make the next stage of the pattern.
Use these task cards with matchsticks/toothpicks, paddlepop sticks or counting sticks.
Encourage your students to find the rule and starting number, or write the number pattern eg 4, 8, 12, 16.
This resource contains 15 task cards for increasing number patterns and an answer key.
This is a 26 page resource containing posters, prompts and ideas that have all been tried and tested in my classroom. They are very easy to use. The kids love them and refer to them constantly!
In this pack you will find:
Posters for a range of reflective thinking strategies
Accompanying blackline worksheets for students
Display text and cards to cut out, laminate and display in your classroom
Read my blog entry "How to make spelling words 'stick'" (http://www.littleleapsoflearning.com/2015/10/how-to-make-spelling-words-stick.html) to learn how to effectively use this Spelling PowerPoint.
This resource is saved in .ppsx (PowerPoint show) which means it will automatically start a slideshow with animations. You will not be able to exit the presentation mode to edit the slides.
This PowerPoint displays Christmas vocabulary, as well as slides with missing letters and choose the right word (class uses hand gestures to indicate), and multiple choice questions (use hand gestures to indicate). My blog entry mentioned above explains these hand actions.
There are 20 words - merry, Christmas, tree, presents, family, Santa, sleigh, reindeer, elves, baubles, tinsel, wreath, decorations, carols, angels, star, December, stocking, celebrate, holiday.
This PowerPoint uses a generic elementary-style font.

Editable spelling games, perfect for literacy activities, or phonics/spelling groups.
Type your word list once and let the auto filling magic do its work!
These editable files use a clever formatting trick, where you type your words into PDF form fields and they duplicate throughout the file, creating a spelling game. This is a huge time-saver and allows you to cater for the different spelling abilities in your class!
Download the preview PDF file to see how it works!
This resource is a zipped folder containing:
• 15 game themes in four game formats. See the preview file for an idea of the themes and formats. Teach the four game formats to your class and it will become routine. Your class will be able to play the games with their spelling word lists all year round!
• Games for word lists with 2 spelling patterns/rules
• Games for word lists with 3 spelling patterns/rules
• Games for word lists with 4 spelling patterns/rules
• Games for independent play and playing in pairs.
The spelling games are designed to be printer ink friendly. They use simple, clear designs that work well printed in low colour or in black and white on coloured paper. No heavy, full page graphics here!
The spelling games are designed to be easy prep. There are no fiddly bits to cut out - all word cards are aligned so that they can be sliced with a paper guillotine.
Important: you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to use this file. It can be downloaded for free here.
The formatting is designed for words 7 letters and less. The files have been tested on multiple devices and by multiple users. If you have trouble with the file, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can offer assistance.
