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!

Estimating with capacity

Estimating with capacity

A simple sheet I used in Kindergarten (ESL children) where they had to estimate which container would have the biggest/smallest capacity, then measure by counting cups of water to fill each container. A fun activity to reinforce capacity.

Problem solving pictures

Problem solving pictures

A simple resource I created for ESL children. Children need to cut and paste the solution to the problem. All in picture format. Children can then talk through the pictures. I made this because all examples I found were in written format and beyond the level of my children.

Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores sorting

Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores sorting

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.

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.

Create a pet shop math activity

Create a pet shop math activity

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.

Odd one out!

Odd one out!

A great thinking skills activity. Children to decide which is the odd one out from 3 given pictures, and explain their reasoning. I used this from Year 1 up as an early morning activity and also time filler. Children should be reminded that there are no wrong answers as long as their answer can be justified. I have heard some amazing ideas during this activity - enjoy!

Cause and effect sort

Cause and effect sort

This is a cut and paste activity. Children will be given colour coded cause and effect sentences, which they should unscramble and paste in their books. Children will then shade the cause in one colour and the effect in another. I had the sentences pre-cut and in envelopes (1 set for each child). As the sentences are colour coded this worked well and also gave the children a chance to revise their knowledge of sentences e.g. starting with a capital etc. This activity was used for a LA group in Year 3 but could be used in many different ways, including pre_assessment of cause and effect, or end of unit assessment. The children really enjoyed the activity.
