In light of the current situation, the need for home learning resources has never been stronger. Teachers all over the world are busy changing lessons and searching for resources that will aid their pupils’ home online learning experience. Distance learning is a new reality and it’s as new for the teachers as it is for the children.
Teachers, now more than ever, need to unite and help each other by sharing any resources they have. For my Year 4 class, I created some PowerPoint presentations that go alongside the Hamilton persuasive writing unit, focusing on Lynn Cherry’s ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, and I am sharing them here for free to help all educators and parents out there.
‘The Great Kapok Tree’ has sold over a million copies and has become a beloved classic that teaches ecology, compassion and personal responsibility as well as providing opportunities to teach grammar and persuasive writing. It’s a great book that allows for endless discussions.

There are more to come, so stay tuned. I’ll be uploading more as I create them.
Let me know in the comments below if you find them useful!
Stay safe and healthy.
Till next time…
