How to use commas in sentences.    Detailed lesson plan and interactive smart notebook programme

How to use commas in sentences. Detailed lesson plan and interactive smart notebook programme

WALT : use commas in sentences. (written this way to encompass usage both in lists for LA & MA, and in marking out extra info for HA.)WILF: commas that sit on the line and that are in the correct place in the sentence.Great for a teacher who needs a detailed lesson plan and a ready to use smart notebook programme. Original stimulus and lots of funny examples which my class loved. Oh how we had some fun with commas. I did it in the lead up to a play so they had to write lists of things they'd need for the play. Your students could use the same stimulus (on end page to print out) or make up their own lists.

Emoji Story Starter Cards for Creative Writing

Emoji Story Starter Cards for Creative Writing

A fun way to engage students in creative writing and story telling. This tool can be used for both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. It is also very accessible for SEN students in lower KS4. Using these cards, students are given a story task. They need to use all six of their emoji's within their story, and can even cut out their stickers to use within their writing. A really fun exercise for students and something that stops the 'writers block' that young people often suffer.

Rainforest Poetry

Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.

Nonsense Rhymes Crosswords 1

Nonsense Rhymes Crosswords 1

Nonsense Rhymes Crosswords are all made up of fun rhymes, for example ‘If your car starts to splutter, feed it peanut... [butter], and ‘But that’s absurd, you’re not a... [bird], and ‘I like to have mustard, with my chocolate... [custard] and ‘Does a tuna wish, to swim like a...’ [fish]. These crosswords are perfect for reinforcing phonemic awareness.Crosswords only work when we spell the words correctly (and neatly). Students learn something rather old-fashioned - spelling. They’ll spend time reading very carefully and thinking about correct spellings - and they’ll want to get it right because there’s something in our psychology that compels us to start them and then finish them. Crosswords also require neat handwriting.These puzzles have also been very effective with students who struggle to concentrate.It’s normal for students to compete with each other and it’s normal for them to beg for the answer to 23 Across before they leave for home. Best of all, students ask for more of them. And when they do that, they’re really asking for more reading and writing and spelling time. And how much more beautiful can a teaching day get than that?This resource is made up of 5 Nonsense Rhymes Crosswords (and a few more just for fun). It's a PDF document so it's quick to download and print.

UK to hold General Election on June 8

UK to hold General Election on June 8

British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced there will be a general election in the UK on June 8. Her decision to hold a snap election comes after she repeatedly claimed she was initially against the idea. She said that her change of mind is because opposition parties, and unelected peers in the House of Lords, were jeopardising her government’s preparations for Brexit.The Prime Minister said, “We need a general election, and we need one now.” She added, “I have only recently and reluctantly come to this conclusion. But now, I have concluded, it is the only way to guarantee certainty for the years ahead.”

May Day celebrations in Europe

May Day celebrations in Europe

Today, let’s talk about how May Day is celebrated in some parts of Europe. For many, it is a traditional workers' holiday.In Greece, one of the more popular activities on May Day is fire jumping. This is done after the sun sets. Women dance around the lit fire. The children wet their clothes and hair, before jumping over the fire. It is a symbolic act, to keep away winter and disease. Another popular tradition is picking flowers, and creating a May Day wreath, to hang on their doors. It is meant to bring people closer to nature. In France, May Day is really a day off for its workers. French people like to give family and friends little sprigs, bouquets, or even whole plants of lily of the valley, for good luck. The more bell-like the flower, the better the luck.
