Reading Skill Explanations and Reminders on a Desktop Memory Fan

Desktop reference to remind students of information and make them independent learners. Students love the novelty of these fans! Something they haven't seen before, although the skills are familiar. This fan holds a summary of comprehension reading skills to serve as desktop reminders students as they are working. Students keep these fans on their desks or in folders to refer to as needed. The explanations jogs their memory and provides a novel, quick reference for students to flick through for information or to use during group or centre activities. You can also print in colour or black and white. Printed and laminated, they are a great resource that I've used for many activities. They are easily displayed and used; they hold a summary of the needed information, and serve as a reminder of the Reading Comprehension skills you've discussed. The fan is laminated and held together with a split pin, so you can include all or as many of the blades as you wish. You can add blades according to the skills and ability of individual children. Each blade has a skill summary. Skills include; 1) Cause and Effect 2) Prior Knowledge 3) Predicting 4) Sequencing 5) Comparing and Contrasting 6) Fact and Opinion 7) Making Generalisations 8) Drawing Conclusions 9) Questioning 10) Visualising Scatter on desks throughout the room; have hanging somewhere available for individual use or give to particular groups working on a skill.A suggested Reading group activity is simply reading and discussing the information on the blade. They allow students to recall and use the skills. Students love the novelty of these fans. Something they haven't seen before, although the skills are familiar.

WRITING 120 Task Cards IMAGE PROMPTS BUNDLE Writing Varied Genre for Writing Activity Centres

WRITING 120 Task Cards IMAGE PROMPTS BUNDLE Writing Varied Genre for Writing Activity Centres

This is a money-saving BUNDLE of 4 sets of visual writing prompts for kids, in Primary Grades: a set of pictures and tasks to inspire creative writing. It is a great writing centre activity, as the tasks offer individual students enough scaffolding and writing tips for students to independently complete work. I’ve tried to select a variety of fun images to trigger thoughts, questions and memories, inspiring children of all grades, to want to write. The cards ask questions to get the creative juices flowing, and the writing tasks include various genre, for example: narrative, expository, persuasive, journal entries, lists, letters and “how to” instructions. On each task card, there is a picture, a few questions and a choice of two prescribed tasks, plus a free choice. There are recording Sheets to track progress. Students don't share the same experiences, backgrounds and values, so some of them find it difficult to come up with ideas for writing. This lack of ideas stresses them, and the situation spirals. I find using pictures as motivation is supportive and non-threatening. I've included an Australian spelling version on A4 paper. Just print the version you want, laminate and they’re ready to go! So many uses! Writing, discussion starters, fast finishers, homework, journals. I think these tasks will get the creative juices flowing. I've tried to choose images to trigger prior knowledge and memories, while others will stimulate imagination and fantasy. I've included an Australian spelling version on A4 paper. Just print the version you want. There are recording Sheets to track progress. This is a bundle, which includes SETS 1, 2, 3 and 4; a total of 120 Task Cards. These sets are available as individual items too.

Teaching GRAMMAR Lesson Cards Correcting Common Grammar Mistakes

Teaching GRAMMAR Lesson Cards Correcting Common Grammar Mistakes

Do your students need a better of understanding of grammar? This should help! There are 20 A4 posters. Each card deals with a common grammar, spelling error or misunderstanding. The correct usage is explained and examples shown. Then there are smaller copies of these posters, and activities so students can practice each topic. If you laminate each smaller card and connect it with the related worksheets, you have great centre activities to cater for individual needs. Once printed and laminated, I’ve used these cards as an individual, small group or whole class activity. The card is the discussion and reference point. A great way for students to understand the usage, is to talk, discuss, find examples in their reading, a fellow student’s writing, list knowledge on a retrieval chart etc. They are great to remedy mistakes of individual children’s writing, send one home as a meaningful, homework task. Copied, they make great lesson notes to paste on the right-hand side of student’s books and get them to write sentences to show what they’ve learned on the opposite page. Concepts or Usage covered: *did/done *brang/brung/brought *my/myself/me *drank/drunk *saw/seen *lend/loan *brought/bought *sang/sung *swam/swum *I/me *its/it’s *then/than *to/too/two *bad/badly *here/hear *good/well *there/their/they’re *affect/effect *could have /would have /should have (instead of “could of” etc) *broke/broken (unlike some of my students, I do know there brang and brung aren’t words!)

I have also used as a whole sheet assessment activity, and ask children to circle or mark the correct answer. Many children can count to ten or twenty, but now they need to think about the order and counting forwards and backwards, and they need to become more familiar with patterns, seeing sequences and patterns and predicting the numbers, preparing them for working with more complicated number patterns. These activities involve thinking. This is a companion set for my other counting cards sets, and is included in a BUNDLE.

VALENTINE'S Would You Rather? Printable Critical Thinking Decision Making Cards

VALENTINE'S Would You Rather? Printable Critical Thinking Decision Making Cards

Would you rather? This is a set of Valentine's Day activity idea cards; to start brains working to think critically and evaluate between the choices to make decisions. They can also be an activity for your February literacy centres. These should encourage critical thinking and discussion for most age groups as half the cards are supported by images , the others rely solely on text. Always ask for discussion and justification for the final decision. These can be used as time-fillers, if you have some to spare; prompts for group discussions; debate topics; writing starters; impromptu speech topics etc Students seem to enjoy the “choice” aspect and develop great debating, critical thinking and speaking skills. I use with younger students as discussion starters or debate topics. This gets the children used to justifying their choices and ideas. I’ve included a graphic organiser if you wish to use it. I copy and give to students if I’m using the cards for a writing or debating task. It helps them organise their thoughts.

Maths Puzzles using Arithmagons andFidgets for Thinking Students

Maths Puzzles using Arithmagons andFidgets for Thinking Students

I think these make great tasks for Maths group activities, for Grades 5 and 6, as they require deep thinking as well as calculation! Print, laminate and GO! Or use whole sheets as a worksheet. These are thinking puzzles, that I've used the popularity fidget spinners images to capture interest students. These are arithmagons. An arithmagon is a polygon with numbers on its vertices and edges. Usually the task has one set (either vertices or edges) and students are asked to work out the others. When the numbers on two vertices are added, the total should be the same as the number on their common edge. There are 42 spinners, all answers and a sheet for students to record finished tasks. The first few are the easiest, but these are thinking challenges! I've included answers and a formula that you want to share with your students, after they have solved, discovered and discussed. They are also useful for early finishers. I have provided the same cards in black ink, if you prefer.
