The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf reading comprehension activities

(0)
This download includes 1 Word Document of reading comprehension activities for chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 21. The activities link with the comprehension stratagies, prior knowledge, metalinguistics, main ideas, visualisation, critical analysis, summary and inference. The activities were co-created by a colleague and I when teaching this book as part of a modeling block. Some chapters are missing. I found it important to remind the children to answer in full sentences and provide evidence where possible to back up their ideas. I hope you can use this download as inspiration or to support your own reading lessons.

This download contains 1 PowerPoint file with 1 blank wall template and 30 song request cards. This file is fully customisable (text/ colour/ size).

However, music can also help us to promote and reward positive behavior. ⁣⁣ Please share your pictures with me on Instagram @MrAndersonPrimary and on Twitter @MrAndersonPr.

Good morning slide

Good morning slide

(0)
This download contains 1 PowerPoint file with 1 slide. This PowerPoint will allow you to display information to your class including the day and date, weather (drag the icons on the right as appropriate), lunches or other information, morning challange, a quote (I’ve included my favourite “be your best self”), and a fact of the day! Morning slides are a great way to display information to the children for their arrival into the class. With practice, the children can become independant in getting on with their morning challange or sorting out their lunches (whatever works for your class). This PowerPoint is fully customisable (text/ colour/ size). In the classroom I’ve jazzed our morning slide up by using different fonts, I am unable to share these as I do not have copyright for commercial purposes. Please share your pictures with me on Instagram @MrAndersonPrimary and on Twitter @MrAndersonPr. I hope that you enjoy this download.

Class jobs tablet display

This download contains 1 PowerPoint file with 5 slides. The tablets on slides 1 - 3 display our class jobs. I change my jobs each morning so every child gets a turn doing something. Each tablet is fully customisable (text/ colour/ size). The final two slides can be used as name tags for your children. Giving children jobs within the classroom enables them to take some responsibility and independence in the running of their class. In my experience children enjoy helping out and take pride in their roles. We co-created our class jobs through whole class discussion. ⁣⁣ Please share your pictures with me on Instagram @MrAndersonPrimary and on Twitter @MrAndersonPr. I hope that you enjoy this download.
