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!

Tooth Fairy Letter

Tooth Fairy Letter

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

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.

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!

Create a character

Create a character

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.

The capacity challenge

The capacity challenge

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.
