This product is an interactive notebook file designed to be used each morning as a half hour warm up. Of course you are free to use it this resource however you like as well. It contains multiple literacy and numeracy activities appropriate for all primary classes,(3-6) as it allows for teachers choice and constant differentiation. The file provides students with the opportunity to practice key literacy and numeracy skills in a short, sharp and focused morning warm up. It also enables the teacher to differentiate learning content for the different abilities in the classroom.While it may seem difficult to find a spare half in each morning, other teachers with similar programs to this find they have more time to complete their regular literacy and numeracy lessons as these core skills are being practiced daily each morning and therefore they do not need to incorporate these drills/starter activities into their lessons. The clipart images on each page are links to other documents and websites with supplementary content and activities. The activities in this file are:
- using a webpage to determine the weather and write a sentence about it
- writing the date with accuracy (both long and short date)
- telling the time
- skip counting
- maths mentals
- communicating and inference
- sentence of the day (spelling, punctuation, grammatical features and literary devices)
I would appreciate any feedback you may have regarding this product.
I hope you find this product helpful.
Best wishes :)
