Spring Write About the Picture {also editable}

This Spring Write About The Picture has been created for emerging writers, with the goal of enabling students to achieve success with independent writing. Students have been provided with a word bank to help with spelling and encourage ideas for writing. To begin to extend sentences students have also been provided with colour words. They should first colour the picture with the ‘best’ colour, then use the finished coloured picture to enable them to begin to write longer sentences. This is the core of this resource. Teaching Points: • Students will need some prior knowledge of what it means to extend a sentence and the role that adjectives can play in this • Students should be encouraged to use as many colours as possible to colour their pictures I have added some extras to give students and teachers an element of choice- Differentiation: • Alternative handwriting lines • A second bordered page for students who wish to write at length • The photo section provides more difficult vocabulary and could lead more able writers towards a ‘what happened next’ story writing style, should the teacher wish to lead them in this direction • An editable version of all content has been provided for the teacher to make vocabulary choices. Just type your chosen words in each box! This resource will work equally well as a ‘grab and go’ resource or as a small group activity where students are encouraged to verbalise their sentences first.

Money Matters Clip It Cards

Money Matters Clip It Cards

From an early age, children see money everywhere, and know that having money is essential to getting the things they want and need. In addition to learning more advanced counting strategies (counting on and skip counting), they will become flexible as they learn to count to the same number in different ways, with different groups of coins. Teaching children about money also offers an excellent opportunity to help them practice place value skills. Fun and engaging, these clip it cards will provide students with repeated practice in penny equivalents, coin recognition and coin totals. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: • cut out cards • mark the correct answer (with a marker) on the back of each card for student self-checking • laminate for durability • provide clothes pegs – students place the peg on the correct answer • place in an independent station or use with small groups ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover, Contents Table • Teacher Notes • Clip It Cards x 88 • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 26 ********************************************************** RELATED RESOURCES All Puzzles and Games All Money Resources ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Puzzles and Games Teacher's Toolkit Money Resources

Thinking Skills: Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Thinking Skills: Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Today’s students are the problem-solvers of the future. If they are taught factual knowledge only, they tend to respond with conventionally correct answers rather than exploring creative solutions. All students can learn to think critically and creatively. Students need to be able to judge, analyse and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognises the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modelled and developed. This ‘Think Outside of the Box’ series provides teachers with straightforward ideas and activities to help students develop these skills. In this pack you will find 80 quick start task cards – 4 cards per page. I have provided 3 options for printing. These ‘quick starts’ are ideal warm-up activities for the beginning of a lesson. They should be used flexibly and can be used in any order at any time. As these task cards are intended for repeated use, I would suggest laminating them for durability. When to use: (10-15 minutes group/class) • at the beginning of a lesson • during circle time ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover; Teacher Notes • Brainstorm Task Cards x 8 • How Could You?

Reading Comprehension: Checkbox Challenge Non-fiction Comprehension

Reading Comprehension: Checkbox Challenge Non-fiction Comprehension

I created this non-fiction reading comprehension pack 'Checkbox Challenge' to encourage struggling readers from Year 3 to Year 5 to practise their comprehension skills, using non-fiction text with age-appropriate content. The texts vary in length, but I have tried to keep the sentence structure and vocabulary simple. The passages are mostly written within the Years 3-5 Lexile bands. A word of caution however - the levels should only be used as a guideline - some of the more challenging topic vocabulary increases the Lexile level. (This type of vocabulary is topic specific and students would not be expected to know it). The pack contains 2 pages per topic, which can be printed back to back. • The first page introduces the text and questions. TEXT EVIDENCE • On the second page, students can highlight the piece of text which contains the answer. Some questions may require the students to look beyond the text to infer the answer. I have used this pack with my advanced Year 2s, although the basic premise is for intervention with older year groups. ✎ The texts help students develop skills in retrieving information from text. ✎ The check boxes allow those students, who struggle with handwriting and writing skills, to demonstrate their understanding and achieve success. ✎ These texts are suitable for independent work and ideal for shared and guided reading. They are also suitable for small group work where reading skills can be modelled, practised and developed. ****************************************************** CONTENT • Cover • 25 x Non-fiction Texts • 25 Picture Cards • TOU/Credits TEXTS • The Frog • The Penguin • The Polar Bear • The Bat • The Owl • The Spider • The Ant • The King of the Jungle • The Jellyfish • The Dinosaur • Hibernation • Pirates • Ancient Egyptians • The Pilgrims • Community Helpers • The Dentist • Neil Armstrong • Abraham Lincoln • The Planets • Earth Day • The Water Cycle • The Four Seasons • The Weather Forecast • The Journey of the Banana • The Teddy Bear PAGE COUNT: 82 ********************************************************** RELATED RESOURCES ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Comprehension

From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana Part 1

From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana Part 1

Looking at the connections between food, health, society and the environment, students can begin to imagine how what we eat determines how the world is used. Food takes a complex journey from its origins on farms, ranches, rivers, oceans and other sources to consumers’ plates. Along the way, it passes through the hands of producers, processors, transporters, warehouse operators, retailers, consumers and waste handlers. This pack will help students understand that most of the food that is bought in stores and eaten by them, comes from farms. They will explore the food to table process. This resource is part of a larger cross-curricular unit of The Story of the Banana. It includes a Fact Book for the teacher to read, stimulating discussion cards and a group activity, as well as a text evidence based comprehension. ********************************************************** CONTENT 🍌 Cover 🍌 Fact Book Teacher Notes 🍌 Fact Book 🍌 Discussion Cards Teacher Notes 🍌 Discussion Cards, plus group activity 🍌 Choice of 3 styles of related comprehension text questions 🍌 TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 24 ********************************************************** RELATED RESOURCES From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana Part 2 From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana Activities Part 3 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Thematic

This simple pack of Logic Puzzles For Key Stage 1 is a fun and engaging way to stimulate logical thinking in early learners. Suitable for 5-7 year olds (depending on ability) these logic puzzles can be used as early finisher tasks. The pack contains 28 logic puzzles in total. Students need to be able to judge, analyse and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognises the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modelled and developed. Learning to apply logical reasoning through logic puzzles can stimulate the brain, as well as aid memory and concentration. CHALLENGE SET NOTES: Students should always cut out the pictures first, then read the information. This is to avoid being influenced by the random position the pictures have been placed in on the worksheet - the position of the pictures is irrelevant to the information given. After the initial reading, students should place the pictures in the correct positions first. They should then read again for the other criteria. Some inferences must be made.
