3 Presentations differentiated for 3 ability groups.
1. What is a verb? (Recap and enforce)
2. Moving images;
What is Superboy doing? - Flying
What is the man doing? – Eating, watching or looking.
What’s happening on the football pitch?
How was that goal scored? Running/Ran, kicked and diving (goalkeeper)
What is the crowd doing? Jumping, shouting and cheering
3. What is an adverb? – go back to previous slides and ask ‘Are these people just flying? Eating? Running?’ Could any other words make these sentences more exciting? Quickly! Intensively! Frantically! Hurriedly!
4. Next 2 slides present beginnings of sentences using verbs giving me the chance to ask ‘What adverbs could make this more exciting?’
5. The second slide of examples for the HA group focuses on adverbs that don’t end in ‘ly’. MA group will be presented with one word which doesn’t end in ‘ly’.
6. Show video of Usain Bolt obtaining world record.
7. What words can be used to describe how Usain Bolt ran? Have a short discussion to see what words children can come up with. Then display 12 words (all adverbs) and ask would it be okay to use each of them. Some are wrong deliberately!
8. The ‘Dab’ slide (Usain Bolt dabbing). This is aimed at lifting the moods of the children. State that it is called the Dab so it is a…? noun. He is dabbing, so that is a…? Verb. And he’s dabbing confidently …which is an…? Adverb!
Practise dabbing confidently, timidly, proudly and lazily.
Slide 9 contains a video of Elvis Presley arriving onstage and singing. Inform the children that they are now news reporters, news reporters who happen to be very lucky because they get to go back in time to watch Elvis in concert, they even get to see him back stage! This video is very good for this lesson because there is a lot going on in it to start a discussion with the children asking them what verbs they can identify in the video i.e. singing, dancing, walking, swaying etc. Don't forget the crowd!
Slide 10 for HA contains a table with potential adverbs. Tell the children that they will have to write a news report so they can report to the people of 2017 on what they witnessed. Report should have 8-10 verbs linked with an adverb.
Slide 10 for MA contains a table with verbs in one column and the rest of the table contains the potential adverbs. Get children to write a news report on what they have witnessed for the people of 2017 using the verbs provided, linking them to the adverbs provided.
Slide 10 for LA contains a table with 7 verbs on the left column and 6 adverbs on the right column. Verbs on the left are all things Elvis done in the video, but now we want to find out how Elvis done them. Give them paper cut outs of the verbs and adverbs and ask the children what can they match.

Lesson will be Scooby Doo themed.
First slides investigate children’s knowledge on questions, statements, commands or exclamations. Each slide will provide children with a moving image example of each type of sentence we are discussing today. Ask children to give an example to the rest of the class and praise accordingly.
Nest section of slideshow will display Scooby Doo video clips, each containing questions, statements, commands and exclamations.
After each clip, slideshow will display children a script of the previous clip (modelling the correct way to write it) and ask them to raise their hands if they can identify what type of sentence it is and if they know how we write it. Then the slideshow will will display the correct answer.
Keep going with each clip. Don’t be afraid about asking children to experiment and think of their own sentences – give them the stage!
Guided work slide will be displayed followed by a slide of prompts and examples.
Year 2 children will be asked to write individual sentences. Their sheet has been divided into 4 titled sections with space to write accordingly. LA Year 2 will be given the same sheet however theirs will have examples of each to remind them.
Year 3 children will be asked to write at least two paragraphs. I will show them a few slides explaining what I mean by paragraphs. LA Year 3 will be given a worksheet, divided into two blank paragraphs and prompts for each paragraph.
***Please Note I created this slideshow for a composite class of Year 2 and 3. You can edit guided work to suit your needs***

Take your class on a quest to defeat the Riddler who wants to take control of Gotham!
This PowerPoint is perfectly structured, if you need to write a plan just write it around the slides! You don’t need to change a thing, the PowerPoint will take you through the whole lesson, and providing you take the time prior to the lesson to study the PowerPoint each slide will prompt you - and you will soar!
Presentation starts off with a few introductory slides, you then will split the class into 4 teams. Once the class is split you will then present Riddles to them, children must work in their teams to solve the riddle and provide you with an answer on their team whiteboard. You as teacher can take a tally of their scores.
Once all 10 riddles have been solved, your class will now work in their teams to create riddles to present to the other 3 teams. I had each child write a riddle and then as a team they selected the best to use in the final battle. Children then presented their riddle to the other 3 teams. If none of the teams could solve their riddle I awarded 20 points, 15 if one teams solved it, 10 for two and 5 points if all three teams solved it. These points were added to the tally created earlier and a winning team declared.
As a substitute teacher I take this lesson with me everyday on a USB pen. It’s perfect for getting a class engaged and always works a treat!

A refresh lesson lesson packed full of moving images to get your class excited!
This presentation gives a refresh on nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. It uses both still images and moving images to give children the opportunity to say what they see. I.e. Pictures of Marty and the Doc are nouns.
Then the presentation displays a short clip from the movie. Here children will watch the clip and on their whiteboards they will write one sentence, they will have to identify what types of words they used in their sentence.
Now tell children you're taking them back in time to watch Marty McFly in concert. When they come back to the future they will act as reporters and write an account of what they saw. Children will then watch the 'Johnny B Goode' clip from the film and write an article telling people of the performance they witnessed.
Great and effective lesson (plus it gets children interested in this great movie!).

This is a really fun problem solving lesson. You’ll need a bag of match sticks so that each child can participate.
We’ve all been challenged by someone who laid some matchsticks down and told us we could only move a certain amount to achieve a goal. Well, this PowerPoint contains 16 of these puzzles and their solutions!
Each slide shows a number of matchsticks laid out in some form of shape. You the teacher will tell each child to copy that shape. After this the slide will display the objective of the puzzle. After your class has had a go you can then click to reveal the answer.
A fantastic lesson on problem solving. Perfect for the run up to Christmas, easter or Halloween holidays!
***Updated to that the font appears on your computer!***
Extremely effective PowerPoint where each slide presents a word. The children will be asked to identify if it is a noun, verb, adjective or adverb. The sentences have been designed to trick children. For example, the word 'fish' is displayed. When tested most children say it is a noun, however PowerPoint will then display it in a sentence as a verb.
Each slide also contains a funny moving image, these keep children engaged.
When I did this lesson with my class it was wonderful to see the realisation set in.
The last slide contains a table of words which can be used as either a noun, verb, adjective or verb. It is then up to you what you'd like the children to. They could select 5 words and write two sentences for each word, using them in different context and identifying what they have done.
This was an extremely effective lesson.
Powerpoint presentation covering floods, hurricane, tornados, tsunamis, lightning, volcanos and earthquakes.
Each slide is simple and contains only a 2-3 minute National Geographic 101 video. Teacher could discuss with the class what they know about each topic before they play the video and then after each video discuss what they now know.
Worksheets are good for data gathering while each video is playing or during discussion.
I do not own the National Geographic videos, I have simply obtained them on YouTube and compiled them altogether in the one place.
