Buttababez's Shop

I have been a primary school teacher for 10 years both in the UK and internationally. I am taking a break from education in order to start my own business so thought it was about time to put some of the resources I have created to good use (again). I have an abundance of resources so keep a look out as I will be adding them gradually. Thanks for checking out my shop!

A PowerPoint presentation I designed to introduce Napier's Rod as a multiplication strategy. Could be used as homework help or support for parents. A good and quick revision aid that can be edited.

Measuring with handspan

(0)
A very simple sheet I used with my ESL Kinder/Reception class. Children estimate then use their hand span to measure different classroom objects. They record in the table. A quick and easy resource to use as an introduction or independent activity.
Create a character

Create a character

(0)
Children will use this frame to help them develop ideas about a new character. I used this after the children created characters using the 'draw, fold and switch' method. They stuck their characters onto the sheet and then wrote details about the character they had created. There are 3 different versions of the sheet - a really fun way to promote creative, detailed writing.
Tooth Fairy Letter

Tooth Fairy Letter

(1)
A letter from the tooth Fairy, used as a launch for informal letter writing as part of a teeth and healthy eating topic. Used with Year 3 but could be used across KS1 and Lower KS2. The tooth fairy "visited" the classroom while the children were in assembly and left this along with a lot of fairy dust!!
Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores sorting

Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores sorting

(0)
This resource includes 3 differentiated activities. The children are given sentences/pieces of information, and pictures of different animal types. They should work to sort the text and pictures into 3 groups (carnivores, herbivores, omnivores) based on the information they read and see. The children then share how they have sorted in class and class can discuss differences and similarities in the ways they have sorted. This activity worked really well as a group activity but could also work as a paired activity. I used this as a warm up activity for one of my whole class sessions.

(0)
Children to cut out shapes and try halving them to see which can be halved equally. They should stick the shape into the table with a tick or cross to show their findings. Can be used across ks1 and lower Ks2.
The capacity challenge

The capacity challenge

(0)
This activity was used as part of a measures workshop I taught in Grade 1. On the table were different labelled containers and in the middle of the table was a large basin of water with a plastic cup inside. The idea was to observe the children's mathematical thinking and problem solving skills throwing in questions now and then to support their autonomy. A really nice workshop - great and simple activity.

Adjectives, similes and metaphors

(0)
Children generate adjectives, similes and metaphors from a range of picture prompts. Resource can be used as a follow up to whole class teaching. I used these as part of a poetry unit in Year 3.
Create a pet shop math activity

Create a pet shop math activity

(0)
This resource was used as a cross curricular activity during a 'You are what you eat' topic. The children were given pictures of different animals each with it's own price tag (to be added by CT depending on group). Children had to create a display window for their pet shop by adding the prices and subtracting from their given budget, in order to find the change. Children then stuck down their animal pictures on the shopfront display. Resource includes an extension sheet, shop display sheets and animal pictures. I used this with Year 3 but could be used across the primary age, as budgets and prices can be adapted.
Informal letter sort

Informal letter sort

(0)
2 differentiated informal letters for the children to cut out, sort and stick into the correct format. Great revision or initial assessment of understanding.
