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!

Text Organisers and Interactive Maths Games

In case you have not clicked on the links yet, there are a couple of really nice links, also designed by Jenny, at the bottom of the Maths Dictionary page.

The first is to a site called Writing Fun, where you can get simple writing frames (or text organisers) for persuasion, narrative, poetry etc. What I really like about this site is that there are examples of each text type, ranging from simple pieces to more elaborate and detailed ones. These would be really useful for shared reading.

The second site is Rainforest Maths which has simple online flash activities arranged according to year group.

I thought I would mention them in case you had not yet noticed!

Online Maths Dictionary For Kids

A colleague at school sent around a link to an amazing online Maths Dictionary for the children to use which I just have to pass on. I think it is fantastic!

It has been created by an Australian primary school teacher called Jenny Eather, who made it some years back for use in her own school. It now contains over 600 words and is extremely popular, having had over 8 million visitors!

The alphabet is at the side and clicking on a letter shows the maths vocabulary starting with that letter. When you click on a word, you not only get a definition, but samples, examples and quizzes too. It is really child friendly, simple to use and great fun.

I can think of loads of ways of incorporating this into both maths and English lessons, but, I think to start off I am just going to let the children explore it and have some fun!

Thanks Jenny!

Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Resources - Kiz Club

I know, I know, it has been far too long since I last posted! I am sorry, but had good reason - first I moved house and then, well, I went on holiday for two weeks! Thanks to everyone who has been emailing. I have a bit of a back log of links to post about and I will get to them soon.

In no particular order then, thanks to Lynn who loved
Topic Box. She has recommended a site she has been using regularly called Kiz Club. It has some very sweet resources, all in pdf format, that will help you create some nice displays in Reception and Y1 classes. It seems to be more American style, (I think it may even have links to Korea) so do check the spellings on some of the resources like the flashcards.

There are some nice phonic and
word work sheets and I like the way there are some activities to go with the nursery rhymes.

It is quite a simple site, but may just save you a bit of time at the start of each term.
