Cbeebies Alphablocks CVC word family velcro words

(1)
Children love Alphablocks and they are an amazing program that really does help little ones understand phonics and helps them on their initial journey on how to read. This resource was made using word families because that will help hearing the different sounds and therefore help with initial reading of CVC words. It is also good for children to hear different intial sounds. It is important to include pictures with each word too so they can link words to real life objects. Once laminated, velcro needs adding to the dots so the Alphablocks can be stuck down. The children can then move these initial sounds infront of the picture of the middle and end sounds to make a word. They can then read it and match it to the pictures. Word families included are: at, ad, et, en, in, ig, ot, og, ug, un. Reading is a ‘silent’ process for many children. When first learning they do not possess the ability to imagine what the written word is telling us. They have many, many other skills they have to master before they can get there. This resource is aimed at beginner readers and to try and put some fun into reading. They read it and then they have to match it to the correct picture out of the three available. With a picture to help young children visualise what they are reading, they have a purpose to reading it too and not just going through the motions. I made a lot of resources for traditional tales that can be printed off and laminated. Then the idea was for the children in my class to access these independently, either by using pegs to match the answers or other ways to work out the answer like using bottle tops with letters wrote on them. These resources are available in my shop.

Percy the Park Keeper - One Snowy Night - Simple sentence peg boards

(0)
These boards include one simple sentence with sound buttons on decodable words with three pictures from the book. The idea is that the child should place a peg on the correct picture that matches the sentence. A very simple comprehension exercise that they could do completely independently. The pegs add a bonus that it aids their fine motor skills at the same time.

When learning to read and write, children need the opportunity to explore with letters and sounds. This resource has been made to allow children to move letters, manipulating them and hopefully reading them as they go a long in order to make simple CVC words. You will need something to write the letter sounds on, in my case I used milk bottle tops and this allows the children to move them around but with the picture they can relate the written word to what they can see. A must at the early stages of reading.

These peg boards have been made for children to access independently - they use a peg to indicate which word, out of three rhyming words available, matches the picture shown. The pegs have an added bonus of aiding their fine motor skills and its a great way to see if they are reading accurately. I have been made aware recently that Microsoft office does not support publisher any more. With this in mind, I have added a PDF version of the resource that you can use.

Reading is a ‘silent’ process for many children. When first learning they do not possess the ability to imagine what the written word is telling us. They have many, many other skills they have to master before they can get there. This powerpoint is aimed at beginner readers and to try and put some fun into reading. They read it and then they have to match it to the correct picture. With a picture to help young children visualise what they are reading, they have a purpose to reading it too and not just going through the motions. This powerpoint is designed to be used independently, but can obviously be used as a teaching aid too. I made a lot of resources for traditional tales that can be printed off and laminated. Then the idea was for the children in my class to access these independently, either by using pegs to match the answers or other ways to work out the answer like using bottle tops with letters wrote on them. These resources are available in my shop. This resource is exactly the same as the one you can print off using pegs to indicate the correct word to match the picture, but it is for use on the interactive whiteboard. Again, children can access this independently as it does say when you have the wrong answer or it can be used to model the printed version. All they need to do is click on the correct bottle top to indicate which letter comes next in the CVC word. Each picture has three words and the child has to choose the correct one. The powerpoint indicates if they have the answer correct or not.

I created all these resources to be used in my class when they start in reception. The idea behind this resource is to help children understand what they are reading. A simple comprehension activity. There is a simple sentence that will match to one of the three pictures on the cards. The child should use a peg and match them. The peg will help their fine motor skills which in turn will help when they are ready to write. Please note that I have NOT included capital letters on these sentences, the idea behind this is that the children aimed at with these resources are only starting on their phonics journey and will probably not have the skills to recognise all the letters let alone capital letters.

When a child is learning to read it is important for them to blend each word individually. However, when children are doing this they can forget what they have read already. They have a lot to workout and remember so its only natural. A strategy we use is to ask the child to go back to the beginning of the sentence once they blend a word and read the sentence with fluency and therefore not blending. This is the only way they can remember what the sentence is. This resource is designed to see if they understand what they have read. A very simple sentence has three different pictures under it. They should read the sentence and then use a peg to indicate which picture matches the sentence. The peg idea is to aid their fine motor development and therefore help with handwriting.

A very simple comprehension activity for children who are just learning to read. Each board has a picture and three words. The child should use a peg to place on top of the correct word that matches the picture. This way, they are reading lots (each word rhyme to help the child read them all) and the peg helps their fine motor skills too, which in turn helps with writing.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears - phonics bundle resources

I created all these resources to be used in my class when they start in reception. They range from initial sound activities to reading/making CVC words up to reading a simple phase 2 (Letters and sounds) sentence. Lots of these resources allow the child to match the sound or word to a picture. They have been created so the child uses a peg to show which picture is the answer. Using a peg to do this instead of just pointing to it also helps develop their fine motor skills, which in turn will help, when they are ready, to write. There are seven resources included in this bundle so its a saving of £2 if you want to take advantage of this. They are all designed to be used in the children’s enhanced learning time where they can access them independently to show you what their learning has been.

Phase 2 and 3 phonics sound mats - Alphablocks in A3, A4 and A5 format

(1)
Sound mats are priceless when helping young children to remember the sounds they need to write in words. A quick reminder of how the sound is formed is usually all it takes for the child to carry on with their work instead of being stuck. I have included the A3 version, which I use as part of a display, the A4 version, which I don’t actually use but I have in the past for visually impaired children so they have a larger copy and the A5 version. Both the A4 and A5 versions I like to laminate back to back so they are both together for the children. Tricky words are also included on each. I also tend to place ‘me’ and ‘my’ together as this is something children do tend to get mixed up with.

Numicon and number recognition - Match the Numicon to numbers 1-10 powerpoint

(0)
The best way for young children to understand numbers is for them to ‘play with maths’. This means using lots of concrete resources until they have a true understanding of our number system. Without this vital step, children will not be able to visualise maths and therefore will struggle later on when dealing with abstract maths. The next step is for children to use what they have learnt with picturial representations. This still enables them to visualise the maths without being able to ‘play with it’. This powerpoint will fit within the pictorial element of the process. Saying that, it is also a lot of fun for children to play the games and experience Numicon in a different way. Children are expected to click on the number (out of three options) that matches the Numicon shown. It them shows them if they are right or wrong. The powerpoint is fitted with a cBeebies Numberblocks theme as my daughter and current class love them but as it is powerpoint you can change this to fit any theme your children love.

I created all these resources to be used in my class when they start in reception. The idea behind this resource is to allow children to match initial sounds to words. When a child is ready to start phonics this is an important skill to allow them to move onto working with full words. You will need an extra resource to go along side this printable. I used bottle tops and wrote the letters on the top. Each card has a picture that they have to think of the initial sound for, they then have to find the bottle top with the sound (letter) that matches. They place it on top of the circle and then it makes the word. With help they can then read the sounds and blend the full word.

We're going on a baddie hunt - smart notebook - Talk for Writing

(0)
This story has been adapted from the much loved ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and I’ve used it to start out Talk for writing unit about superheros. I only used two baddies in the version as I teach in Early Years but we then used the idea to create their own version using different baddies they chose. We talked about how I changed it from the bear hunt and how they can change it with me modelling during the week and then them having a go on Friday. The story is made using GIFs and the text underneath. I found all my children were excited about the story and we had some lovely roleplaying all through the unit. All good when you want those sort of observations.

number 10 - odd one out - subitising (subitizing) problem solving

(0)
This is a great resource that children enjoy. They have to problem solve to find the odd one out. I laminated the sheets, cut out the crosses and stuck velcro on the squares and cross. This enables the children to work independently by placing the cross on the ‘odd one out’ before explaining to me what they found. I also placed the number sentences with Numicon representations on the back of these sheets for a reference to the children. Why is this activity important? When children subitise it means they can work out how many in a collection without having to count everything they see. They can describe how many by looking and thinking which helps your child build their mathematical imaginations. Spatial structures are critical mathematical representations that children need to be able to make meaning from. It later enables children to work flexibly with numbers and operations.

When initially learning to write sentences, a child must remember a lot so it is important for us to scaffold their learning. One way we can achieve this is to provide sentence starters. This not only enhances their sentence writing it also gives them somewhere to start in their thought processes and allows them to be creative with their writing. Starting off is sometimes the hardest part of the writing process! These boards are designed for writing just a sentence in my class as an independent activity but of course, they can be used for story writing etc given the correct input.
