Primary Teaching Resources

As a KS2 teacher for over 25 years I know how time-demanding it can be to source suitable teaching resources at short notice. During my career I have developed an enormous amount of my own teaching resources and am a firm believer that teacher-created resources should maintain a professional look and enrich the learning process. My aim is to provide high-quality teaching materials at affordable prices which will stimulate learners and positively enhance the learning environment.

Times Tables Matching Cards

(67)
Times Tables Matching Cards - Included are all the times tables from x2 up to x12. Each times table fact is displayed on its own card with the matching answer on a separate card. Each card measures approx. 5cm by 9cm. Font used is Sassoon Primary. Ideas for use: As a matching activity by individuals/pairs/small groups As flashcards during the oral/mental part of the Numeracy Hour As an interactive display, requiring the children to place the correct answers against the facts displayed To show that changing the order of the digits in facts does not affect the answer, e.g. 4 x 5 = 20 is the same as 5 x 4 = 20 As an interactive group/class matching activity on the board (use blu-tac) …and lots more!!!

Instruction Genre Checklist Mat

(68)
Designed to help the children whilst they are writing instructions in Literacy, the Instruction Checklist Mat is a useful tool for the children to ensure that they address all the features of this particular genre in their own work. By making the Instruction Checklist Mat available on classroom tables, the children have instant access to ideas and, therefore, are more equipped to work independently. The Instruction Genre Checklist Mat can be re-used, especially if laminated for durability and has been produced in full colour using the Sassoon Primary font. Topics included: instructional/procedural texts.

Class Table Race - Motivational Resource

Class Table Race - Motivational Resource

(0)
Class Table Race Classroom resource ideal for motivating pupils! Tried and tested in the classroom, this resource will motivate your pupils to organise themselves quickly, enabling wasted time to be a thing of the past! Directions for use Laminate and fix together the 4 pages of the Table Race track (35 spaces) and display with the heading and chequered flag (at the finish line). Assign each table/group of pupils a coloured car to ‘race’ towards the finish line throughout the week, in response to the teacher’s instructions. At the end of the week the winning table/group then receives a reward (to be decided by the teacher) and the cars are reset to ‘start’ for the next week’s race. This resource can be used in a number of ways. For example: Award 2 ‘table race points’ to the table/group which tidies up the quickest and 1 point for the next quickest table/group, etc. - you will find that classroom equipment miraculously disappears, leaving tidy tables in a fraction of the usual time taken! Award points for the tidiest pencil pots, etc. Award points for reading silently during reading sessions Award points for putting chairs up quietly at the end of the day etc., etc. Rewards given to the winning table/group each Friday could include a small inexpensive prize, team points, a privilege, etc. The Table Race can be incorporated into your existing reward system easily. You will be astonished at how well the Table Race can help to motivate the children, as well as bringing a fun element to mundane tasks such as tidying up!
