VCOP Daily Activity Pack - Year 1 Term 1 (eDownload)
50 individual VCOP hunting and gathering activities for Term 1. Designed to integrate VCOP into both reading and writing tasks. Enough activities to run 1 a day for the whole year, to really embed the understanding of VCOP. As well as VCOP ‘Up-Level It’ challenges to showcase activity skills, (and allowing the teachers to track progress). Also included are student checklists to track completion of the activity cards in order to become a certified VCOP Kid- complete with certificate.
Link with the VCOP Gang to emphasise where they fit into writing to help create the writer’s voice.
Designed with junior classes in mind, in the first term, the different VCOP areas are bundled- 3 weeks of Vocabulary, 2 weeks of Punctuation, Connectives, and Openers, followed by the final week being a different element each day.
Many tasks throughout the whole year are oral language based, especially Term 1. They progressively get harder throughout the year and optional challenges have been included on many activities to allow extension.
Some of the ways these activities could be used include;
1. For students to practice a skill before up-levelling their own work.
2. As a VCOP integrated into literacy game.
3. As a brain break activity.
4. A literacy task, possibly a rotation.
5. As a fast finisher activity.
6. As a whole class warm up or reflection activity.
