I created this gorgeous little ‘get to know me’ rainbow which can be used at the start of the academic year to get to know your children! Creating relationships with your children is key and this resource enables children to tell you all about their favourite things such as their favourite animals, films and colours!
These seven colour monster inspired feeling cards are a great way to assess how the children are feeling throughout the day. It is another great way of getting children to use synonyms for words such as ‘happy’ or ‘sad’. There are seven characters available - can either peg children’s names on or put them in a jar etc.
I was super inspired to make these cards from a session on well-being from my last university module ‘Promoting Positive Mental Well-being’ that I had to create a keychain of quick breathing/calming exercises to do in the classroom. My personal favourite is the ‘Mindful Safari’ activity and I had to put my favourite animals as a picture!
Mostly all of the cards and letter strips are CVC based but some challenge the children’s knowledge on blending, segmenting, graphemes and digraphs. You simply insert the letter strip you want into the chosen card and move it up and down. I have colour coded the letter strips to match a card and have made three letter strips per card! The word families included are: ab, an, at, ag, ap, ack, og, ot, op, ed, et and ip. In total, there are 12 word family cards and 36 letter strips.
I have made them both pastel themed so it’s easy on the eye and I’ve also designed one for EYFS/KS1 and KS2. As you can see, both templates have prompting questions to see what the children have learnt, see what they enjoyed but also see what they found tricky!
Based around the EYFS/Year 1 White Rose maths scheme, this assessment can be used to check children’s level of understanding in mathematics.
This board game is used to get children to recognise the number bond pairs to 20. I’ve created this board game where the children play in pairs, they roll a dice and move ‘x’ amount of spaces. The space they land on, the children need to figure out the matching bond to make 20 and write it in the star. Do until the board game is complete!
It can either be used at the end of a lesson or at the end of a unit of work but it simply gets students to assess where they feel their learning is at.
So this resource has to be one of the simplest ideas I’ve created. I brought some bright coloured card from Hobby Craft and printed four reward cards onto a sheet. I will hole punch the card when I see a good behaviour or when the child has made the correct choice. Once all the stars have been punched, they are able to claim a reward. A fab and cheap way of reinforcing good behaviour!
I brought an airlock 1.5L food container from Sainsbury’s, printed and made my own label and then made the little critters! They are going to be a great behaviour management tool in the classroom to control the noise in the room.
Some fabulous lanyard attachments to use in your classroom! I have created birthday lanyards, buddy lanyards and ‘ask an expert’ lanyards! There is also an editable option available.
The aim of the cards is to encourage you to ‘take a break’ for an evening/day per month. You pick a well-being card, complete the activity on the card and can post it on your Instagram feed using our hashtag #mymonthlyrecharge if you feel like it! In total, there are 12 different wellbeing activity cards. These will be a digital copy and therefore will not be laminated, cut out or have a ribbon fastening
A class weather chart full of 11 weather picture cards, the weather chart, 11 weather name cards, an arrow and a thermometer to keep track and aid discussion about the weather.
