Warm-ups are a fantastic way to engage students, revise previous content and introduce new concepts. This bundle includes concepts aligned to the Australian Year One and Pre-Primary Curriculum. Each concept features editable components so you can adjust them to suit your students' needs. This pack has slides that follow a rote learning style, e.g. sight words, and also slides that the whole class can complete on mini-whiteboards or as the basis for an entire activity. If you would like to see more about how I use these slides in my classroom, you can follow me on instagram @mrschalmerscherubs.

While we are navigating this global pandemic, I am more than happy for you to adjust this resource to best suit the needs of your class.

***Tips for Distance Learning***

  • Share sections of slides with parents/students through e-mail or an online platform. E.g. release new sight word slides /grammar content / math concepts each week.
  • Screen shot desired slides and upload as an image for students to complete on SeeSaw (or other platform).
  • Display selected slides on your computer/smartboard. Work through a normal routine, filming the warm-up for students to access online.
  • Follow me on instagram @mrschalmerscherubs for more tips or to have questions answered.
