242 Page UPDATED phonics spelling and reading workbook! See video preview.
Based upon the teaching order in Jolly Phonics (but could be used alongside any phonics scheme) and using suggested words from the suggested word lists, - covering ALL 42 sounds in the English language.
Beginning with group 1 sounds, and logically and sequentially building to cover all blends, digraphs, trigraphs and dipthongs in English.
For each sound, blend, digraph, trigraph or diphthong there are 5 or 6 pages:
Add the blend or digraph to the word and connect to the matching picture
Clear clip-art (black and white - perfect for colouring) labeling page using 9 carefully chosen example words/clip-art
followed by a fun read and draw page
Write the blend or digraph and read the words with the aid of sound buttons and lines under each grapheme.
Find, highlight and write the words containing each specific blend (or digraph, trigraph etc.)
then a cloze page of decoadable sentences which have been carefully sequenced to progressively incorporate words that are consistent with the letters and corresponding phonemes that have been taught to the new reader/speller in previous pages of the book (plus sight words)
Could be made into a 242 page workbook, or of course individual pages can be printed off and photocopied.
(I have uploaded two versions of the book - the original 168 page standard version, and a 258 extended version)
Perfect for beginner readers and spellers.
Also great for EAL students to help build vocabulary alongside reading and spelling skills.
Made by an experienced phonics teacher, and used in real classrooms weekly.

Introductory ESL PowerPoint with 5 worksheets about the basic rules of subject-verb agreements.
1)Starts by reviewing what the subject and verb of a sentence is.
2)Then an example slide of the grammar rule.
3)Main part of the PowerPoint provides example sentences with various different subjects and students choose the correct form of the verb, on a click the correct form of the verb floats into place.
(rule is removed after a few slides, but then reappears so that you can reinforce [or correct] the rule).
Fun story style to keep students engaged.
4)Ends with a simple task instructing students to write examples for different subjects and pronouns.
I use it with a ESL after-school class and mini-whiteboards for pairs of students to make it into a quiz game format.
Also included are 5 carefully designed, story-style, fun worksheets which provide reinforcement and practice for the rule.
1 of the worksheets repeats the examples used in the Powerpoint.
Blank 0-20 numberlines (with equal lines increasing by 1s) & 0-100 numberlines (with increases by fives and tens)
And one A4 page of 100 numberlines, with increases by 1s (small gray lines) and long black line showing steps of 10.
Use them how you wish...start at 0, start at 300, start at 900.
For students to fill in the numbers under or above the dashes.
I will print onto card and laminate, or stick on top of mini whiteboards and call out numbers for students to locate the number on the numberlines.
next, so, because, but, until, before, if, then, until, also, instead of, meanwhile.
Use conjunctions two join to short sentences together.
6 examples with multiple choices of conjunctions.
Followed by a clear example of using the chosen conjunction to make one longer sentence. After this students are asked if the sentence makes sense, finally the Power Point rewrites the new, longer sentence to reinforce the change from 2 short sentences into 1 longer sentence.

I hope that they are helpful and fun for students and teachers.
A PowerPoint which introduces the 'Doubling-and-Halving Strategy for Multiplication'.
This PowerPoint uses an array to show the multiplication strategy of doubling one factor and halving the other factor to help to work out some multiplication problems. Doubling and halving is therefore related to thinking that ‘restructures’ an array to make it more manageable to multiply (e.g. 3 × 18 = ___ can be rewritten as 6 × 9 = ___).
Very visual resource which helps students see that the total number of circles in an array (the product) stays the same when an array is cut and rearranged.
No text: so recommend that the teacher walks through the first couple of example slides and then students verbally explain the following examples to their peers.
Order of animations:
1) Tricky array and sum is shown.
2) Confused smiley bounces in. (explain here that if you don't know your 15 times table etc. this could be hard)
3) Scissors appear and cut the array - array restructures into simpler array (double of one factor/half of the other)
4) New corresponding sum appears - click & answer is shown
5) Array restructures to first formation and tricky sum is shown again
6) As the total number of circles has remained the same throughout the sequence the answer should be obvious :-)
[7) Optional - reverse arrow through slide show to reinforce what has happened]
I use it alongside other strategies so that it is presented as an option for mental computation involving multiplication.
This PowerPoint focuses on building a connection between multiplication and division operations using an active model to reinforce the connection between the two operations.
Visual introduction (or reinforcement) of the relationship between divison and multiplication using input and output tables to show that division is sharing and multiplication is combining.
The PowerPoint is designed to encourage students to combine equal groups of clipart images to make a total (multiplication), as well as share a collection to form equal groups (division).
The PowerPoint uses a variety of public domain clipart images to act out a multiplication or division problems to encorage students to determine the total and reverse the action to determine the quotient and vice versa. Your students can make up little sroies to help them understand each operation.
x3/÷3 & x4/÷4 Facts used (28 slides). (You could hide all of one type of slide operation if you wanted, or alter the order of slides)
Use these writing frames to help Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2 students write stories.
8 story idea writing frames with suggested words to help students write interesting stories. Appropriate possible word choices for characters, and setting and a selection of appropriate key phrases, adjectives and verbs which writers could incorporate into their stories. All or just a few of the words can be used. Although it may seem to a teacher or tutor that the plot is predetermined by the word selection children can write a multitude of different stories by selecting fewer or more words, putting words in different orders and by adding their own extra words and information to create a different story each time. (Differentiation by outcome)
Designed to help young writers expand their vocabulary and have fun writing.
Made for my grade 3 class who are just starting to formally learn their times-tables.

10) Animated slide that shows that the tens digit goes up by one, and the ones digit goes down by one when the nines times table is recited in order.
I have made PowerPoints for every times table which follow a similar order, but modified for each specific times-table. Please see my other resources.
The seaside themed PowerPoint explains and shows what an array is, with fun seaside and beach illustrations, arrays using circles, clear examples, top tips for saving time e.g. counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
(Please see video for a 8 second per slide run through of the PowerPoint, actual PowerPoint is far smoother and controlled via right click to begin each animation, giving time for explanations and children to think and answer)
Also included a fun, introductory array cut-match-stick worksheet (2 version: one at a lower level and one slightly harder)
An introduction or reinforcement of the 'think multiplication strategy' to help with simple division.
An animated, interactive PowerPoint presentation with arrays of dots to help students visualize related multiplication and division facts.
A partially covered array showing only the number of rows in an array, but not the number of dots in each row is shown, along with a matching fact statement (e.g. "Altogether there are 40 dots")
Students are encouraged to give the multiplication sentence AND related division sentence using the information shown (total number of dots & number of rows/groups) that helps work out the array proportions. e.g. 5 x ? = 40 and 40 ÷ 5= ?. 14 example arrays.
In this carefully designed, animated and fun PowerPoint and worksheet resource students;
* briefly review clockwise and anti-clockwise turns by means of animated images of clocks and 11 other fun animated revolving images.
*review quarter, two-quarter/half, three-quarter and four-quarter/whole fractions of a circle
*Can play a simple following instruction game to review clockwise and anti-clockwise quarter, half, three-quarter and whole turns prior to or after watching a birds-eye animated image of a man standing on a divided circle making animated turns.
*In pairs practice turning a pencil clockwise and anti-clockwise quarter, half, three-quarter and whole turns prior to or after viewing an example.
Also included is an accompanying two page worksheet (in word & PDF format) using the same pencil image to consolidate learning.
Made for my grade 3 class who are just starting to formally learn their times-tables.

Emphasizing the rule that;
"When you multiply a number by zero, the answer is always zero"
Second slide is 'times one' times table and shows the multiplicand (the number being multiplied) emerging from itself and sliding over to the product (the answer)
Emphasizing the rule that;
"Any Number Times One is that Number / 1 x anything = itself"
A complete package for teaching how to multiply by five.
Step counting, Visual Animated Grouping, Arrays, Flashcards, Tips and Tricks.

7) click-to-show missing answer multiplication wheels (9 versions)
8) Slide that clearly shows "the answer always ends in a zero or a five" with two fix units and flying in and out sums and tens numbers.
9) Visual explanation of the "Multiply by Ten and Halve it" trick: unifix cubes of x5 shown with confused smiley, then unifix cubes showing x10 shown with a happy smiley, which are in turn covered to show that students can think times ten and then halve the answer to get the x5 answer.
10) "Multiply by Ten and Halve it" extension flashcard trick to reinforce the strategy.
Can be used at Key Stage 1 as an introduction to multiplication and even at Key Stage 2 to develop and reinforce multiplication skills.
Hope that teachers find it useful, and that students enjoy it and find it fun and helpful.
Visual Multiplication makes it easy and fun.
This PowerPoint is designed to introduce young students to multiplication visually with the use of multiplication input tables.
All facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables presented plus 16 other mixed facts. A total of 43 multiplication examples.
Different clipart themes for each of the 43 examples allowing for different story scenarios.
(e.g. 3x5 uses 3 types of birds with 5 birds in each group)
Therefore, if we have three groups of five birds and we need to find the total number of birds, we can either:
add the birds within the groups
(5 + 5 + 5)
or we can multiply the number of groups by the number of birds in one group
(3 groups x 5 birds)
Leading to…3) 5 + 5 + 5 has the same meaning as 3 x 5 (3 groups of 5)
Matching turnaround facts are linked to from each slide.
Chosen facts can be directly jumped to from menu slide.
Multiplication sum, movement of items from small groups to one large group, and answer controlled by click of the mouse.
Designed by a teacher and used in real grade 1 and 2 classrooms.

This animated PowerPoint uses arrays to help with the three times table multiplication strategy .
This clear, step-by-step and helpful PowerPoint will help students learn that multiplication by 3 can be done by doubling and adding another set.
e.g. to calculate 3 × 14:
first double 14 getting 28, then add another 14, (to get 3 times 14) which is 42.
21 Examples are presented (from 3 x 2 up to 3 x 21) in order, or from a hyperlink menu.
Each slide shows the sum and a confused face,
Then two lines of the matching array (showing the doubling array)
Then another set (another line of the array) is added
Whilst the matching thought process is shown with clear sums.
Finally everything apart from the x3 sum and array dissolve out, leaving just the sum, the answer and the x3 array.
Each part of the thought multiplication strategy is presented when you click the mouse, giving students time to work out and explain each step.
