Little Miss Teacher is a place where those of us in the classroom can share our ideas, resources and experiences. We can also have a good old moan and share some of those funny little things our children say!

World Cup Reading

The National Literacy Trust website has links to Reading The Game, a project using footballers to promote literacy amongst adults and children alike. With the World Cup just around the corner, we may as well use it in the classroom however we can!

I found the site a bit awkward to navigate, but if you look, there are some nice ideas. I particularly liked reading about Premier League footballers' favourite books in the Reading Champion section.

There are lots of book recommendations, but not much in the way of online material. Still, reading about what their favourite football stars read may inspire some of your children.

Interactive Multiplication Games has links to some great interactive games for learning times tables. The first game, Timez Attack, has to be paid for; but the rest, further down the page, are all free.

Many of the games are quite simple in design but you can select the difficulty of the questions. My children had great fun playing these and have copied the link so they can play at home!

Have fun!

What Is Thinking?

One of my colleagues told me a very amusing story today which I thought I would share with you.

She usually puts the schedule for the day up on the board. Earlier this week, she wrote 'Thinking' next to lesson 1 as opposed to the usual subject names. One of her darling year 5's raised their hand and asked "Miss, what is thinking?"

I know the child didn't mean it like that, but it does sum up some of the bad days we all have from time to time quite nicely!


Digital Brain Resource for Plants Topics

I have recently come across some useful online resources on Digital Brain for our 'Helping Plants Grow' unit in science. There are lots of links to online quizzes and other useful websites.

There are also resources available for other KS2 Science topics and several other curriculum areas, but I have yet to explore these.
