31 Desert Biome Words - Suggestions for Use


 

  • IMMERSE YOUR CHILDREN IN WORDS...
  • GENERAL IDEAS FOR STORING AND USING THEME WORD CARDS
  • Make a display of the 4 different types of deserts and label them. Children draw and cut out appropriate pictures to match the words - fill your display with their pictures and word labels..
  • Use with the desert concept book...'In the desert I might see....'
  • Research other desert animals and plants - 'google' these words to find out more interesting information about each term.
  • Compare living (ecosystems) in the desert to living in the rainforest - list the similarities and differences in terms of 'Food Supply', 'Shelter', 'Weather', 'Animals', 'Plants'
  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities .
  • When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes (small wash powder boxes or yoghurt containers work well, or hanging pockets for continued 'grab and go' games and writing reference.
  • All the activities from '101 Fun Flashcard Activities' are fantastic with these Words ...... (DON'T FORGET TO UTILIZE THIS TERRIFIC RESOURCE EVERYDAY)

  • I believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
