Who Let the Gods Out? - 20 Whole class reading lessons

(0)
A series of 20 ready-to-teach complete notebook lessons about the fantastic book Who Let the Gods Out? This resource contains 10 notebooks each comprising of 2 lessons as well as all accompanying resources. My slides will guide you from start to finish through this wonderfully engaging book that the children will love! The slides are intended to be taught to the whole class using the increasingly popular whole class reading approach. Each lesson usually takes the same format: Starter/ opening task on whiteboards Pre-teach vocabulary that will come up in the reading read the book with the class - all page numbers provided (I like to use a mixture of Teacher reading, partner reading, choral reading, and echo reading) A short input/ modelling before the task Task slide - various activities including, annotated posters, speed reading challenges and themed comprehension questions Note: To maintain variety, slides sometimes slightly differ from this format. The series of lessons is appropriate for Year 4 to Year 6 children but can easily be adapted. All lessons are linked to the English Reading National Curriculum and many focus on the content domains from the reading SATS papers. Many tasks in the lessons expose and teach children common vocabulary from the Reading SATS papers but in an engaging and friendly manner (Vocabulary like the following: impression, effect, according to the text etc.) Learning objectives include: predicting, summarising, retrieving information, inference, finding evidence to justify an answer as well as reading fluently with expression and intonation. Many of the tasks include differentiation. I use a green, yellow, red chilli system, where children start on either green or yellow and then can move on to the more challenging red chilli. Please be aware that the 20 lessons focus in on certain points in the book and much of the actual reading of the book would need to be read outside of the lesson time. I have included a slide for each lesson that clearly states which pages should be read before the next lesson. This helps keep the pace of reading up and maintains the children’s interest. The children in my class loved practising their reading skills using WLTGO and my slides. I’m sure other children will also!

The Graveyard Book - 20 Whole Class Reading Lessons

(0)
A series of 20 ready-to-teach complete Powerpoint or Google Slides lessons about the award winning book The Graveyard Book. This resource contains 10 Powerpoints (or Google Slides) each comprising of 2 lessons. My slides will guide you from start to finish through this wonderfully engaging book that the children will love! The slides are intended to be taught to the whole class using the increasingly popular whole class reading approach. Each lesson usually takes the similar format: Starter/ opening task on mini whiteboards Pre-teach vocabulary that will come up in the reading read the book with the class - all page numbers provided (I like to use a mixture of Teacher reading, partner reading, choral reading, and echo reading) A short input/ modelling before the task Task slide - a range of activities including the following: annotated drawings, themed comprehension questions, debates and challenges. Note: To maintain variety, slides sometimes slightly differ from this format. The series of lessons is appropriate for Year 4 to Year 6 children but can easily be adapted. All lessons are linked to the English Reading National Curriculum and all focus on the content domains from the reading SATS papers. Many tasks in the lessons expose children to similar questions that they might come across in the Reading SATS test. All are set in the context of The Graveyard Book and children really enjoy the short tasks. All tasks are set on the powerpoint for children to view and work from - there is only one worksheet included. I found that this reduces the need for lots paper handouts and makes the lessons run even more smoothly. Learning objectives include: predicting, summarising, retrieving information, inference, finding evidence to justify an answer as well as reading fluently with expression and intonation. Some of the tasks include differentiation. I use a green, yellow, red chilli system, where children start on either green or yellow and then can move on to the more challenging red chilli.

Journey to the River Sea - 25 Whole Class Reading Lessons

(2)
A series of 25 whole class reading notebook lessons about, possibly my favourite children’s book, Journey to the River Sea. This resource contains 25 notebook lessons as well as all accompanying resources. My slides will guide you from start to finish through this wonderfully engaging book that the children will love! The slides are intended to be taught to the whole class using the increasingly popular whole class reading approach. Each lesson usually takes the same format: Starter/ opening task (some lessons do not have a starter task) Pre-teach vocabulary that will come up in the reading read the book with the class - all page numbers provided (I like to use a mixture of Teacher reading, partner reading, choral reading, and echo reading) A short input/ modelling before the task Task slide - various activities including comprehension questions, a themed quiz, drawing scenes from the book and character connection maps etc. Note: To maintain variety, slides sometimes slightly differ from this format. The series of lessons is appropriate for Year 5 to Year 6 children but can easily be adapted. All lessons are linked to the English Reading National Curriculum and comprehension questions usually focus on practising a specific reading skill. Learning objectives include: predicting, summarising, retrieving information, inference, finding evidence to justify an answer as well as reading fluently with expression. Some of the tasks include differentiation. I use a green, yellow, red chilli system, where children start on either green or yellow and then can move on to the more challenging red chilli. Please be aware that the 25 lessons focus in on certain points in the book and much of the actual reading of the book would need to be read outside of the lesson time. My slides clearly state which pages should be read before the next lesson. This helps keep the pace of reading up and maintains the children’s interest. For example, there are two points in my slides where I focus on simply reading for pleasure. One point is around halfway through the book and the other is towards the end as I found the children just wanted to find out what happens at the end! The children in my class loved practising their reading skills using Journey to the River Sea and my slides. I’m sure other children will also!
