Dial a Number

Since we are new at the "numbers" game, I thought of a fun way to get the children to recognize numerals from 0-9.
I made up number cards, laminated them and placed Velcro teeth on the back for sticking to the carpet. I then placed them on the carpet in a mobile phone array.
I called out a series of numbers (4 or 5) and the children had to tap or jump on the numbers in the correct sequence.
 I had a little toy phone and when they got it correct,
I hit the 'dial' button and it made a dialing noise.
 If they dialed the wrong number I hit a 'number' button and it 'beeped' - "Sorry, Wrong Number" and they got to try again.
What Fun we had!!  Shhhhh! - we're supposed to be learning!!

CHARACTERS in The Ravenous Beast

Since we were learning about "Speech Marks" & "Speech Bubbles"
we created wall art based around that characters of the book and
the things they said in the story.
These graphics and more exciting worksheets are
available in the Book Study pack at my TpT Store.


The Ravenous Beast By Niamh Sharkey

We read the story "The Ravenous Beast" this week and learnt a lot about 'speech marks' and 'speech bubbles'. We made amazing Beasts. (Some were more 'Ravenous' than others!!)
You can find this activity and more amazing activities in my Book Study Pack at Teachers Pay Teachers Store.

Okay! This guy was less Ravenous than the others .... but maybe that's because he's missing his dentures!!
