Sunflower display with different emotions and a variety of synonyms for each emotion. I use this in my class to gauge how children are feeling each day. The children put their lollipop stick into the appropriate cup so no one else can see their names, and I check them when they are completing soft start activities. Also helps children expand their vocabulary around the different emotions they can experience!
Simple, editable poster to foster independence in the children. The ‘Ask 3 Before Me’ approach I have gone for encourages children to think about the instructions they were given, look at the board for clues, ask a buddy for help, then if they’re still stuck, ask the teacher. Please tag me on Instagram @missedwards94 or Twitter @misscedwards if you use this or adapt it in your classroom as I’d love to see! Thank you, enjoy!
Tray and peg labels with a choice of pastel rainbow or bee theme, or a mix of both! Labels created to fit standard classroom trays, however peg sizes may vary depending on the cloakroom style. Fully editable through PowerPoint, just click on the ‘Name’ to amend. Hope they are useful in the prep for back to school!
Simple number cards to fill in before and after/1 more, 1 less. I am planning to use these with number stones but could easily use different resources such as magnetic numbers or writing in the missing numbers. Hope these are useful!
A simple bingo worksheet which children use as an icebreaker with peers in their class. The idea is that they ask peers questions to find a name for every box. Ideally would only be using a name once if possible! Downloadable as a PDF to keep the font or Word to edit.
Completely editable tray labels with a polka dot and pastel design (colours can be changed and own names/labels added on PPT). Font is ‘Elementary Heavy SF’ which will need to be downloaded, otherwise you can choose any font you like!
Simple posters to 20 with the numeral, number name, Numicon and Numberblock. I have uploaded the PDF to keep the font, or the PPT to edit. I hope these are useful!
A simple activity which I put into SmartPals (but could also be laminated). The children have to read the number and build a tower with that number of cubes. This allows the children to visually see which numbers are bigger, by the height of the towers. There are two worksheets - one to 10, and one to 20 as a challenge (I used this in P1). Hope these are useful!
Simple dice game to make rounding a bit more fun! Children can complete this individually or in pairs/small groups. I used this as a fast finisher task. I have also included an example to show the children and support them to complete it independently. Hope this helps!
Simple cards to support children in taking deep, mindful breaths. I plan to put these in my calm corner for my P1 children to use to regulate their emotions, but could be useful in any age group. PDF version to keep font and format, and also PPT version to adapt colour scheme and add/remove any shapes as required. Hope it’s helpful!
Simple, differentiated activity (3 worksheets) to fill in missing number tracks using knowledge of skip counting/number patterns. I used this as an independent task/assessment tool in P1 but can be used in different stages as appropriate.
These mats can be laminated or put into SmartPals for children to complete. In my P1 class, the children used cocktail sticks and playdough to create the shape then wrote the shape in whiteboard pen. They loved this hands-on activity to explore properties of 3D shapes! Includes cube, cuboid, cylinder, sphere, cone and pyramid.
This includes two separate files (one for addition to 10/20 and one for subtraction to 10/20). I used this resource to create a simple tuff tray, linked to an ‘Elf on the Shelf’ challenge. I laminated the elves and cut the hats off to create a simple maths puzzle! Hope you find this useful for Christmas.
Children draw themselves as the ‘I’ in ‘kind’ then write a short sentence about how they can be kind to others! Great opportunity to use this in anti-bullying week but could be used at any time of year. Option of 2 or 3 lines to write on.
A pack of three addition worksheets with a Halloween theme. First worksheet is more visual, to 10. Second worksheet is addition with numerals to 10, and third worksheet is addition with numerals to 20.
Two simple worksheets to practise and consolidate number names from 0-5. First worksheet: trace and match number names to 5. Second worksheet: reading the number name and drawing that number of flowers in the flower pot. I sent these home as homework activities, however can be used in Smart Pals/laminated to be used again and again in class too! Hope these are useful.
A simple ‘roll the dice’ activity to explore the relationship between multiplication and division. Can be laminated/put inside a SMART Pal and written on with whiteboard pen to be reused. Hope you find this resource useful!
Simple activity to put fractions into context using the child’s name. Saw the idea online and had a go at making these myself! Have uploaded a PDF version to keep the font or a PPT version to edit number of boxes for names. Hope they’re useful.
A simple worksheet encouraging children to use reading, problem solving and multiplication skills. Available to download as an editable Word document or a PDF to keep the font and format. Hope you find this useful!
