Tricky Words Board Game

Simple board game consisting of ks1 tricky words. I’ve used this in so many different ways; you can divide kids up into colours and in turns ask them read all of the words in that colour. you can play as a normal board game with dice you can play with HA children not just reading the word but putting it into a sentence you can make it a guided reading or literacy lesson by asking the children to write a sentence using the word they land on I have even used this as an assessment lesson in year 2 when I first got to know my class, it allowed me to find out where they were but also have fun with them.

Phase by Phase Phonics Game

Simple and fun games divided by the sounds in each phase. I gave these to my TA’s to use in small groups. We began by simply saying the sounds, laterwe added in saying a word with the sound, the writing the sound/word and eventually with HA children would work in pairs to draw a picture of a word with the sound and their partner would segment the word. I even used them as ‘fun’ assessment at the beginning of a term. Enjoy!

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!

Differentiated Types of Sentences WS

Differentiated Types of Sentences WS

Three levels of worksheets to identify and create your own sentence types. Each page includes the definition of each sentence type which is great for beginners or revision, but this could be edited to become a cloze procedure. I’ve used this to introduce the topic in class and then to send home for parents in HW. Many of my parents said they found the definitions really helpful and put them up at home as they hadn’t been taught how to identify them before.
