Sunday Spotlight is back! 🙌❗️
With so many new resources made this last week you really need to head over to the VIP area of my website for more than just one.
But today's one was made specifically for a customer - a make your own version of my Daily 5 Checklist. Instead of a pre-made one, you can use the icons to make your own one! Specific to your class and your students! This is great if you only want specific students to be doing particular Daily 5 items, or maybe practice an item more than the others giving more opportunities to practice it on their checklist.
It really is simple to use! Just copy and paste the icon and drag it to where you want it on the checklist. The black square on the left is for their name or a picture of their face. I always use pictures so they know whose is whose, especially for those students that struggle with names.
Check out this quick video below on how it works and use the code 'daily5' on my website to get 50% off this resource and my Daily 5 pack!
This weeks Sunday Spotlight is sharing a fun new resource to help with your noise control in class - noise level bitmoji posters!
These posters are great for a visual display that students can see while working. Teachers could use a special peg or arrow to have the noise level poster at a particular level while working. In my class, I have a noise level monitor and that person is the one that gets to physically move the arrow the noise level expected. Such a fun and engaging way to get students more aware of the noise they are creating and also expectations. And this resource includes Bitmojis which are awesome!
So simple! Download the resource and it will prompt you to a link in a Google Drive folder with the templates. Make a copy of each one and change the bitmoji pictures to be ones of your own! Voila, you are done! Find the link to the resource by subscribing to mrspriestleyict.com. It is in the VIP access area.
This week's Sunday spotlight is these new maths thinking boards! A great way for students to share their learning in different ways, when solving problems. Perfect for students to love figuring out problems or other ways to explain their thinking.
These thinking boards come for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems; catering for all levels or areas of learning. Each thinking board has a space for the equation in the middle and a space for students to write the answer.
These are also available in digital form to download and make copies of. The link to the digital versions are in the maths thinking board pack!
To download this Sunday Spotlight, visit my Teachers Pay Teachers Store or click on the link here >> Maths Thinking Boards. This is another free resource to add to your classroom practice!
This week I am sharing my newly created 'My Piggy Bank' game! This game is perfect for those students learning about money, creating sets with money and adding together! We have been focusing on money recently in class so this will be a great addition to our tumbles!
Students choose a game playing board (the
re are 3 to choose from), get a piggy bank and dice. Roll a number and move that many spaces on the game board, gathering the right amount of money for their piggy bank depending on what they land on. The winner is the person with the most money at the end!
**This activity is only in New Zealand dollars so apologies for those from overseas!

This week I am sharing these magic number letters with numbers from 1-100! These are perfect for your maths programme - number knowledge focus, independent activity or group work response!
For each number there is different templates depending on what you are focusing on. The numbers from 1-10 focus on easier number representation concepts like drawing a set, counting forwards or backwards or circling the number on a line. As numbers go from 11-100 there are other ways of representing the numbers! There are also blank templates at the end for your own customisation. In these templates there are over 400 combinations for 1-100 magic numbers!
Find the link to the slides here, make a copy and use them in your class! 1-100 Magic Number Templates
Do you use writing goals and checklists in your class?
A few years ago I created these writing success criteria checklists as part of an assignment for university! Its awesome to say that this still play a huge part in my writing programme! These go alongside my writing goal cards that students use.
Each of these checklists are linked to a learning intention or WALHT that your students might be focused on. They have some picture cues to help those who need help reading the sentences with feedback and feedforward options at the bottom. I use these with Seesaw, making the evaluation explicit and clear for the student, teacher and parents!
Check out this example below!
The box on the side is for students to place their books to help them keep track of the checklist and their work at once.
These are free to download from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store for a limited time! Check them out or download them here >> Writing Checklists.
Want to see a student using this in action? Watch this video recording of one of my students sharing and looking for evidence of his goal in his writing!
This Sunday Spotlight is sharing a new high frequency word activity to help reinforce sight word knowledge or recall!
This is so much fun and easy to set up in your classroom! Simply print off the password board, choose the word you are focusing on and print that off too. Place the password board somewhere in your class and you're away! I love putting mine near the exit door for students to say as they walk past!
