VCOP display

Here is a photo of my literacy display last term (click on the photo for a larger version). The VCOP part and the text types on the left hand side are more or less permanent, though I will sometimes add different connectives or examples of vocabulary. The small section on the right is changed every time we start a new text type. During our Cinderella work, I put up summaries of the stories we had read. The children used this when they were comparing the stories. When working on a non-fiction text type, I put up features, examples and success criteria for that text type. Usually during narrative units I will have the basic narrative structure plus other elements relevant to the stories we are reading.

The files for the VCOP headings and connective cards are on TES resources - follow the links to the right. In the vocabulary section I included four posters defining types of words and giving examples. The punctuation characters are from Trinity Education. The pyramids that I have used for punctuation and sentence openers are available from many websites, including Primary Ideas.

I like your display - just taken down my happy classroom display and was wondering what to put up!
Thanks

Hi, I love your display! I tried to follow the link for your vocabulary posters but I think the link is broken. Do you still have it because i'd love to take a look?!

HI,


I really love your display and would really like to replicate this in my classroom. Is there anywhere I could download the sentence openers posters?

Thanks

The openers posters were created by a colleague, so I don't have permission to share them. Sorry.
