Wonders of the World

Posted on Sunday 13 November 2016

For ages now I have wanted to do some work on ‘The Wonders of the World’. So finally near the end of a busy year I have managed to create some cards and worksheets on this topic. Still in the development and trial stages, we will see what my students think of the work this week (I learned a thing or two preparing). Here is a little preview of what we may be covering. Loved doing the artwork for this one!wonders-of-the-world-worksheets2

Feelings and Emotions Cards

Posted on Saturday 15 October 2016

I have created new worksheets and some new cards to my Feelings and Emotions set. There are now 30 different cards!!! I will upload the new file soon, so if you have purchased this set you can download it again to see and use the new worksheets and cards.

These new ones were a little tricky, but fun. The feelings and emotions cards are very useful in encouraging your students to talk about how they feel. I used them this week in my classes for vocabulary, classifying  and writing. But most importantly I used the picture cards to encourage the children to talk. Here are a few quotes taken from my Year 1 students during a lesson today – ‘calm means looking at a rainbow’, and ‘the fox at the farm makes me sad’. Don’t forget to drop by my TPT store BLUWREN.

Just finishing off some Fairy Tale work. I have created a pack for bluwren based on four popular Fairy Tales – Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk. In the pack there are 20 ‘Who am I ?’ cards and follow up reading and writing worksheets. The set is aimed at Foundation to Year 2 students.ftIt is always so much fun working on these. Here’s some samples of the worksheets for the Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 students.

Prepositions

Posted on Saturday 21 February 2015

Last week it was all about verbs and this week it is all about prepositions. It was the perfect day (very warm actually) for drawing. So I got to work and produced another set of cards. This time I re-used some of my favourite Australian animal characters to help me illustrate some common prepositions. I can’t wait to trial them with my students on Monday. There are 20 in the set, but 9 here for you to view.prepositions

Action Verbs

Posted on Thursday 19 February 2015

 

Lately, it been all about verbs. I have used this poster and cards to help teach my students all about different actions. They love acting out the actions and then writing simple sentences. Next week, we are going to extend the sentences and make them more descriptive. With my older students we will learn the past and future tenses related to these verbs. You can purchase these cards from my  bluwren store. Verb-poster
