This YellowBeeLearning smart notebook bundle is a set of teaching tools designed to cover all four aspects of a phonics lesson – Revise, Teach, Practise and Apply. It includes fun, interactive activities to make the lessons more interesting and engage the children in your class.
These five lessons cover a week of phonics learning for a Reception / EYFS / Kindergarten class or a set of revision lessons for Year 1 or 1st / 2nd grade. The phonemes covered are ai, ee, igh and oa (long vowel sounds), and the tricky word ‘was’. In the UK Letters and Sounds programme, this is Phase 3 Set 9 (week 4).
There are some pictures to show examples of the different activities in the Smart Notebook files in the preview. Each notebook file is between 8 and 12 pages long.
There are student boards to go with the lessons which can be printed onto paper for the children to complete during with pencil as part of the lesson activities (attaching it to a clipboard helps!) or it can be printed onto card and laminated or put in a wipe clean pocket for the children to complete with a dry-wipe marker. The boards are differentiated for the lessons which involve writing activities.
The bundle includes a detailed weekly plan which lists all of the objectives for the week; the activities in the smart notebook lessons divided into Revise, teach, practise and apply sections; the homework activities for the week and suggested activities for ‘ongoing provision’ in the classroom (phonics table / literacy center ideas and outdoor area activities). The plan is in MS Word document format and is completely editable, so you can tailor the activities to suit your setting.
There is also a differentiated homework sheet to send home, with an answer sheet to support parents in helping their children with the homework. This document is also in MS Word and so you can alter it to reflect your school homework policy.
Please note: the Teach section of the lessons is designed to go with the Jolly Phonics programme and features images linked to that scheme. It assumes that you already have the resources that come with the scheme (the story, action and song), but this page can easily be altered to fit in with whichever phonics scheme you follow in your school.
The lessons are already available in my store individually in case you only want a single lesson, but they do not include a plan or homework sheet.
Thank you for viewing my product today. I hope you will visit my store again soon.
