Product Description

Review

"Each activity has a symbol indicating which learning styles it suits. This is very useful if you are working with a small group that you know well and need an extra activity in a hurry, or if you get called upon to cover for someone and all their planning is at home. Although the activities are aimed at 7-14 year olds, they could be adapted for gifted and talented pupils in Key Stage 1" Learning Support, February March 2006 Issue

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Useful! 22 Feb. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Suitable for upper KS2 and secondary level, this is a great collection of literacy starters and warm-up activites. Many of the activities and games could be adapted for KS1 and lower junior. Corbett covers virtually every aspect of sentence structure and language use in this gem. He is an inspiring writer and his ideas have really livened up the start of literacy lessons in my year 5 class.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any teacher! 23 Jun. 2007
Format:Paperback
I have Jumpstart for over 3 years now and it has been invaluable in my Literacy planning. The games are split into sections, some are quick, others need more time - but all of the games are wonderful. My class has several firm favourites, and I have been particularly happy with the spelling games, of which many are now being played at the children's home whilst learning their spellings for the week. Jumpstart games can be applied to any year group and I would recommend it to any Teacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book 30 Aug. 2007
By CB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love it! The children in my class love it!

It is full of literacy starters and games to get children thinking. It fits really well with the Ros Wilson 2020 / Big Writing and the Literacy Hour.

I wouldn't be without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will wonder how you managed without one! 5 Jan. 2009
By Miss B
Format:Paperback
This is a must for ks2 teachers everywhere. This book provides a wealth of short games to start off your literacy lessons be in fiction, non fiction or poetry - sentence, text or word level work. The games really allow you to extend the childrens vocabulary and provide extra input into vital literacy skills in a fun way.
All NQT's should be given one! A wonderful book - the most regularly useful book i have bought for use in my classroom. Cant give it any higher praise. Mine is full of post it notes of all the activities i love and use regularly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy for the classroom 28 Nov. 2006
Format:Paperback
This has been a great classroom tool. It is easy read and has some great ideas. Some of them you may have already thought of, but on those rainy days when your brain just isn't working, it's great to be able to flip through the pages and find an inspiring starter. Or, in some cases the inspiration for a greta lessons; there are some lovely writing workshop ideas included. Great for 7-14's. A must have for every teachers tool box.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point 3 April 2007
By SJSmith TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used a few of the activities in this book 'as they stand' and they have worked very well with my Y7-Y8 classes who are about Level 2 - Level 4.

I don't feel it is something you could refer to as an emergency 10 minutes before the lesson starts. I have to either incorporate the activities into schemes of work or refer to it the night before/morning.

Covers all range of literacy activities and is an excellent resource in that respect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Resource 23 Oct. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
the head of the junior school was delighted with this classroom resource. However as I wanted it for one to one lessons in my case it wasn't appropriate.
