Grade 1: Word Families. a-words. (19 fun pages)


This workbook has been developed according to the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement. It was designed to increase phonemic awareness and encourage learners to recognise and learn to write words with the a-sound in the middle. It will also promote and enrich vocabulary. Learners become aware that speech consists of a series of sounds. They learn to recognise sounds and become aware that sounds are arranged in a way to form words and words arranged in a certain way to form sentences. The letter cards in the back are to cut out and “build” a-words on page 4 and 5. The workbook has different fun pages like building words with letter cards, word search, crossword puzzles and others. These are to allow the opportunity to recognise and learn to write a-words in an interesting way. Each learner should be given the challenge to experience and learn at his/her own pace. They could work in groups, in pairs or individually. The worksheets give the teacher a choice to allow some learners the chance to do more basic work and reinforce essential skills while others could be ready for more challenging work, keeping them interested. Alternatively, learners could each have a book and work at their own pace. More difficult pages could be left until they are ready to master it. Learners could still work in pairs, in groups or individually. I left the inside pictures to be coloured and learners should be encouraged to do so as they need to practise their fine motor skills and demonstrate their individuality. Learners will also be thrilled to show off their emerging skills in using a Dictionary correctly. The Dictionary I often use is the Oxford First Dictionary, New Edition. The different activities in the book will help reinforce a-words and the basic skills to successfully write spelling words and sentences independently. This will give the learners confidence and a sense of achievement. They will still need support to ensure their success and to encourage a lifelong love of writing and reading. Enjoy this life changing experience with them!

Volume Practical Investigation Stations for STEM Term 3


Have you noticed that your students can solve routine problems involving volume but they struggle when you give them something different? Are you wanting to introduce or build their understanding of volume through problem-solving? These 5 practical stations give students the space to explore and problem-solve. Using them, they will explore concepts like the fact that objects have volume, they will divide volumes and they will solve non-routine problems related to volume. And in so doing, your students will learn. Not just facts and routines, but to think and problem solve no matter the situation. And they will internalise that they can do hard things in the process. What you get: 5 core station scenario cards that: Are labelled with symbols rather than numbers to make it easier for you to mix and match Are differentiated. Each station has two versions: an easier and more challenging version. The more challenging version is identified by a star in the symbol. Include a problem scenario for each station and provide a list of required resources. Station labels: These can be printed and folded along the line to label each station when set up. Student pack containing: A sheet for every station for students to record their thinking, including an outline of the problem scenario. Bonus: two worksheets in addition to the stations for some routine problem-solving practice, including: ordering volumes from smallest to largest; specifying a unit of measurement; reading volume on a beaker and 4 word-problems involving volume in the different operations. Teacher Guide explaining: Exactly how to set up the stations, what resources you will need, what the core skills are and how students can problem solve. You will also get an answer key for the routine problem-solving worksheets. **Check out the preview for an example station**
