This bundle also includes a small goal template and self-reflection slip that can be used alongside the implementation of this resource. All of these are used in my classroom alongside writing progressions to target student needs and next learning steps. More information coming on how I run my writing programme also.
This was a quick half an hour session talking through key things parents will need to know:
This weeks Sunday Spotlight is sharing a new resource that is amazing in your maths sessions. Problem solving mats is a resource that I use all the time in my classroom to add my addition and subtraction or problem solving teaching. This resource includes the base problem solving mat that you use to add/subtract items from or to problem solve. Great for students working with materials or moving away to imaging.
In 10 fun themed mats, these can be used in lots of different way in your classroom - guided groups, hot spots, buddy work or individual solving. Lots of fun and a great scaffolding tool for your class.
This resource is not customisable, but has have two blank picture squares for you to add your own if you want to. Definitley a great classroom resource!
I implemented two technology ideas in the classroom this week to start our regular use and incorporation of digital tools in the classroom. These are Kahoot! and Osmo. Both have great opportunities for students in the classroom and are to easy to get going in your rotations.
The other tool was the coding app which teaches key computational thinking and skills with a hands on approach. This is always a hit and my kids loved using this one too.
Find out lots more information here on the Osmo website.
Not sure how to use the 'let's practice your target words' book? This video shows a quick snippet of how students can use the ebook to help learn key target words. It has parts for listening to the word, writing the word and word formation. This resource then comes with word activities to further support the learning of target words.
This weeks sunday spotlight is sharing this great freebie template that I use with my kids in my classroom. It is a table mat that has space for their name, has the alphabet and some key words on it. This is used daily to help build name awareness, and also alphabet and word recall. These icons align with the same from my other word table mat charts that I have for sale on my teachers pay teachers store.
Even my little new entrants were able to follow the words and write them as they were learning about. Talk about super cute when you can hear them shouting out the word "the" as they write it on the whiteboard.
This resource is available to purchase off my teachers pay teachers store and is super easy to use and implement in your class.
This weeks Sunday spotlight is sharing the link to these great maths templates that are perfect for group work, modelling for whole class problem solving or modelling book activities. These come in a few versions - to 10, to 20 and a hundreds board. Space for working out, number lines and more! A great easy way to have students share their working out or gathering voice.
