Great child friendly pack. Covers all areas of grammar.
What I like about this pack is the clear, easy to read posters. The children will be able to read the poster in a flash, without having to spend ages looking for the 'answer'. The pictures are very specific and clear.
The banner pages are not so great because when you print them they have a join - but hey, I guess that's a small price to pay:)
Response: Thanks for your great review Denise! The banners are spread over two pages (to make them larger), so they have to have a join somewhere. If you would like some single page versions, please let us know :-)
I have recently downloaded the grammar pack for use within the classroom. I found the pack vibrant and it contained useful information not only for the pupils but also as a reminder for the adults working in the class.
The workbooks were a useful aid ????
Response: Thanks for your comments Ann. It is great to hear that the pack has been useful to your pupils and staff! We are always trying to improve our packs, so we will be adding even more activity resources to the Grammar Pack in the future.
Absolutely love this such a great time saver. Great ideas and all the resources to match. Working in a school with very low budgets this is a great way for me to give my kids what they need!!
Makes teaching easier
Just found these packs and they are a well set out and great timesaving classroom resource. They include everything for the topic that you need. Just what I needed to make for my class.
Shapes pack - fantastic
The shapes pack is full of great colourful posters, games and classroom activities. I have created a huge display for my mixed year 3/4 class which was commented upon during my last observation. It's great for the kids to use and refer to during our lessons and I have added a few of the activities for them to muse over during registration.
These are great for getting the children to settle first thing in the morning. Very easy to use, just put them on the IWB and they know to start working on it. Great for getting the children to think out the box and getting those creative minds fired-up.
I am currently in year 5 teaching , after being used to teaching year 1, reception and year 2! A huge jump, so when it came to teaching fractions there was a slight panic, but this pack is amazing and has come out every time we have learnt about fractions! As like all the others it is brilliant!
Loved this pack...great to use with my Year 2. The children LOVED the persuasive situation cards!
I have been using this resource with my P4 class and found it really useful. The children love the audio (I guess it gives them a break from my voice!) and the crossword type puzzles. Really useful resource.
Brilliant Pirates Information
I used this with my class of Primary 4s last year and can't wait to use it again this year. The children loved the booklet and chose it from the bookshelf during free reading time. The graphics are second to none. I also used the book on the Interactive Whiteboard as a demonstration/teaching lesson - the diagram of a pirate ship was particularly useful for this.
Very helpful with a large class!
My children of varying abilities struggled with mental maths, but this pack quickly helped me plug gaps and challenge the more able children. I use these resources on a regular basis with all children in Year 4!
Recount Writing Record
I am a preservice teacher who used the recount writing resources while on Prac in a year 1 class, the teacher was so impressed with them I gave them to her, she signed up and so did several other teachers at the school. They said they made the learning concepts clear and easy to follow while connecting with the students by the use of the engaging character. I will continue to use the amazing resources from this site when in the work force as I can trust they are accurate and professional.
Thank you Teaching Packs
The grammar pack is just what I need as a tool for revision with my year 6 class to help prepare them for their SPAG test. The resources are great and will save me so much time! Thank you.
The Body Pack
What a beautiful pack. I have printed out the entire pack, laminated it and bound it into a book. We are using it as a guide for our Health Topic...might even ask the children to create their own
Thank you so much for this pack. Simple, clear and quick to use in the classroom and with special groups at different levels. Awesome!
Very helpful, especially for my esl students.One of the most useful was the list of words and phrases which can be used to convince point of view in a persuasive piece.
I've just finished fractions with my class ....a topic I absolutely hated myself at school. The pack was bright and colourful and easy to use and made lessons I had dreaded teaching much easier.
I am thankful
I would just like to thank you for making my life as a teacher easier. This decimal pack will help give me back some time to do other things
The banner for Simple Sentences is such a simple idea - I can't believe I had not thought of it before. I've done posters with sentences which have examples of how to extend them, but an explanation of what a simple sentence is is so obvious! If I had the space I would display all the banners. I'm thinking of putting the banners together and creating a book out of them, similar to a wall paper book.
I use this resource every day. My pupils look forward to seeing what is on the smartboard every morning and get on with the tasks immediately. It sets them up thinking and discussing an activity at the very start of the day rather than wasted time while I do attendance etc without them. I'd love to see more of these packs become available. Thank you!
Great for relief teaching
This is my 'go to' resource for relief teaching. It has everything I need for a lesson when there is nothing left by the classroom teacher. The kids love anything pirates, so it's always a hit. So much information to give a good background on pirates, which leads to so many simple activity options, like writing a pirate diary or designing their own pirate ship. Highly recommended!
Just finished using this pack. The class thoroughly enjoyed it, and so did I. Full of interesting facts which we could expand by doing extra research. I learnt a lot !!! Another excellent pack.
I used this pack with a group of students with special needs.
They really enjoyed it, it was a logical layout for them, with worksheets to help embed their learning. We extended the sub-sections by doing extra research. A really good resource.
I have been looking for some great, quick, useful and thought-provoking morning activities...and here they are! In one handy pack. I am sorted all year long.
