Here are a couple of book review templates to keep children busy at this unsettling time! Children could be encouraged to write a detailed review of a book they have recently read and enjoyed. This could potentially be safely shared by an adult on social media to spread the word about a great book to read during the COVID19 outbreak. I hope this is of some use!
These cards are great to provide children with prompts to assess their work before handing in. By asking children questions like “have you used the capital letters?”, “have you checked your spelling?” and “have you shown all of your working?” these cards ensure work is completed to a high standard before being tossed in the marking tray! I would suggest cutting out then laminating these cards, punching holes in them and linking them with a split ring to form a sort of fan which could be placed at each group or at easy access in the classroom for individual use. I hope these are useful, please feel free to leave a review if you use these!
Here is a daily log template that encourages children to write a diary to keep track of how they have spent their time and/or coming to grips with what is happening in the community and wider world currently. Writing daily logs can be a useful way of reflecting and can be useful for children to de-stress during such unsettling times like now. I hope this is of some use, please leave some feedback if you are able to! Thank you.
Bakery Bingo is a maths revision game that has been created for early to first level money, helping children practice their coin counting and recognition skills. Resource contains: x12 bingo cards: x6 up to 10p, x6 up to 20p x30 priced item cards (I would advise laminating the A4 bingo cards for longevity as they are a good resource keep. the priced item cards will keep better if you cut them out and laminate them individually). The game works just like any ordinary game of bingo - children can work individually or in pairs to try and fill their bingo card first. This can be played as a whole class supervised by an adult or children can be given this as a finishing task to play independently. Enjoy!
