After teaching 11 - 13 year old students for 7 years, I decided to stay at home when my second child was born. I used my Remedial qualification to assist those who struggled with Math and English to give them the extra boost. I believe in creating a love for learning in students by making it fun and interactive.

Homophone Bingo

(1)
I have compiled this Homophone Bingo game as a reinforcement activity for my class. Students can play in groups up to 8. This pack includes 8 half page Bingo boards and 24 question cards which require students to identify which homophone is being used in the sentence. I have included a black and white set which can be copied onto colored paper as well as a colored set. Students take turns to select a card and read it to the rest of the group. Students search for the word on their Bingo boards and then cover it with a counter. The reader checks that the rest of the group have selected the correct homophone. Students need to acquire four in a row to win the game. Homophone Bingo is a great addition to your literacy centre as a well as an ‘early-finishers’ activity. Should you wish for additional words to be added to this set, please do not hesitate to contact me at margauxlangenhoven@gmail.com. I trust your students will enjoy this activity. Margaux

Perfect Tense Board Game

(1)
Perfect Tense Board Game This ‘Tense Quest’ board game is the perfect activity to review or practice Perfect Tenses. Students will have fun moving around the playing board and answering the question cards by converting sentences into required tenses. Two versions of this game have been included; one where ‘will ‘is used with the subject in the future tense and one where ‘will’ and ‘shall’ have been used in the future tense depending on the subject used (I shall, we shall everyone else will). This is the WILL version. This game acts as a good listening and memory recall activity as well. It requires one of the other game members to read the sentence to the player in order for them to convert it. Students then practice listening for all the information, remembering it and then recalling it once they have converted it. (I do wish to add that the QR code version can be read by the player them self if you so wish, but the version without the QR codes needs to be read by another player as the answer is on the card.) As said above, this game is offered with and without QR codes. QR codes add an extra dimension to the game as it incorporates technology, which students are so familiar with. Students can download a free QR Code Reader onto their phones or hand held devices and then use it to scan the codes to reveal the answers. Only one device is needed per group. The version without accommodates those classes without access to handheld device. This game is also offered in colour and printer –friendly black and white. I printed the ‘Card Back’ (found at the end of the document) onto coloured paper and then pasted to the back of the question cards to make different coloured sets, to avoid my cards from getting mixed up. Look out for my Simple Tense and Continuous Tense versions of this game. They follow the same structure so that the different versions can be added to the existing game as they are covered in class.

Properties of Numbers Memory Game and Posters

(1)
This is a set of memory cards to reinforce the Properties of Real Numbers. Students need to match a Set A, B and C card together. It includes the following: Set A: A green card back, with each of the names of the Properties of numbers. Set B: A purple card back and each Property of Numbers rule. Set C: An orange card back and an example of each of the Properties of Numbers. Should you think that matching three cards together is a bit tricky for your students, Set B and C can be joined together as Set B and an extra set of Set A need to be printed. This would mean that the name is matched with a rule OR an example and there would be 16 pairs to match instead of 8 sets of three. Properties of Real Numbers posters is also included in this set.
