So I went to the shops and grabbed some different types of balls to go in my ball pit - being a plastic container box. How does it work?
Students use the recording sheet alongside the box and can play either by themselves or with a buddy. They take turns picking out a ball, saying the word that is on it and then writing it down on the recording sheet. Students would leave that ball they picked out of the box so students can pick it again.
Another way they could play is with the buddy, once they have picked out the balls to swap recording sheets. Students could then ask each other how to spell a word that was picked out!
Lots of great fun using this resource and I can't wait to get this going in word work time!
I really wanted to get more of a gauge on how students are going in their learning so created this blank template to go alongside any lesson. I also created specific exit slips for our PR1ME levels but these are based on the 1A and 1B books.
Each exit slip has a space for their name, date, show their working, I can space (for the learning intention) and then a reflection smiley face.
I will have students attach these to their books (if they are doing this after a follow up) or once working with me.
I really love the potential this can have and can't wait to report back with more information once I have been using this a bit more!

For the past few years I have created templates that my students (and others across the world) have used for different purposes in learning. Number knowledge, addition, subtraction, spelling practice, word of the week and more! I still have them in seperate slides but really wanted to find a way of making it easier for others to access.
So i put them together in one place >> bit.ly/mrspriestleyictseesawlibrary

This concept is based off something I saw online, but this resource has really grown over the last week to include so many more resources than when it was first developed!
This resource comes with:
-charts explaining each concept with pre-made pictures
-blank charts for you to add your own pictures
-tumble board pictures
-anchor charts for each concept
This resource also comes with some additional worksheets and activities that I have integrated into this PRISM Maths Concept.
-problem solving thinking frames
-number of the week chart
-missing numbers activities
-signs for boxes
Check out my video below walking you through the resource pack!
Ways you can use QR Codes in your classroom:
-children can listen to stories (listen to reading)
-children can listen to stories while reading along with the book (read to self)
With school heading back next week I know a lot of teachers have been heading back into school to set up their classrooms. And I have been storing a lot of ideas up to use this year! There are so many ideas from Instagram and pinterest that I want to use but have settled on the below details.
Check out my pictures below for a snippet into my classroom and links to where things are from!
I have had lots of interest in my Daily 5 products over the last few days so thought I would give a quick blog post on my experience with Daily 5.
It has been a huge part of my literacy programme for the last two years. This year will be my third year using it, this time with Year 3's. Previously I have done in with Year 1s and then Year 1/2 composite. I first came across Daily 5 online and purchased this book 'The Daily 5'. It unpacks it very clearly and highlights how you should implement it in your classroom. If you're looking to get it going in your classroom then start with this.
