How to use this teaching resource

  • Have each of the large coloured versions laminated and on hand for whole class activities and reference.
  • Smaller black and white or colour ones are ideal for children to make up themselves – great as a reading group activity.
  • Use the blank spinner templates to create further spinners eg.  even higher level ones – eg tion – ac/tion,  protec/ tion, men/tion etc etc.
  • Question the children before spinning – if I spin a ”f” will it make a ”real” word?  What if I spin a  ‘m’ what word will it make?  If I want to make the word ‘mat’ – what letter do I need to land on ?
  • Match the spinner words with the word family / cvc word cards and pictures.

  • We often underestimate the damage that dating catfishes and fake dating profiles do to people seeking serious relationships. Many dating apps are ramping up their security measures to combat this issue. However, catfishing is still prevalent in many dating platforms today.

    It is easy to take great photos, say the right things, and connect with someone online. So people take advantage if this to create fake profiles to scam others or communicate with someone they feel is out of their league. But they don’t consider the emotional and psychological trauma it will inflict on the other party when they realize they’ve been building castles in the air.

    Once bitten, twice shy; the effects of catfishing make it difficult for people to want to continue using dating profiles anymore. So far, there are no guaranteed measures to curtail it. Therefore, many people avoid online dating altogether.

  • I realize that building relationships is not easy. If you want to test most of these features, you can click on this free dating site However, I think you should just start hanging out with different girls to dilute your loneliness. I was shy in the beginning, but then I realized that it wouldn’t lead to anything good and became more open and fun.
