A Strategy For Parent Teacher Communication

A Strategy For Parent Teacher Communication

Download the Sunshine Observation Form along with The Sunshine Call What To Say Script and Resources here (no registration required): http://thebusyeducator.com/a-strategy-for-parent-teacher-communication-that-works/ We all like to be praised. We all like to be told something positive. There is nothing more motivating for a student than receiving a positive “sunshine” call from their teacher. Praise from a teacher to a parent of a challenging student becomes very powerful when the first call the parent receives is a positive one. Place yourself in the shoes of this parent who constantly gets phone calls of misbehavior. Be the one to change their thought of the teacher phone call. If your first call is a positive one, you will have them on your side when you need them later for any student misbehavior.

Ideal for early finishers and for those pupils who need more practice in adding up coins. <strong>Print off, cut out and glue into workbooks</strong> You may wish to record pupils’ work and so this resource is great for cutting out and sticking into workbooks or onto plain paper. Pupils do not have to work through the task cards in number order. Whatever ability the pupil is at, you can choose the appropriate task card. There is a Recording Sheet with space for the pupil’s name and date for when each activity card was completed. <strong>Alternative uses</strong> I have included blank card and coins which you can prepare to suit the needs of your pupils.

Pupils can cut out the little flags and stick on the blank task cards. <strong>For small group or one-to-one activity</strong> Lay out cards that have the same value but different combinations of coins. Ask pupils to match the cards that add up the same amount and elicit what coins were used on each card. E.g.

The Harvest Moon. A musical for EYFS and KS1.

The Harvest Moon. A musical for EYFS and KS1.

The Harvest Moon is a musical presentation of 6 songs, linked by a narrative that tells a simple story. The songs are fun, catchy and easy to learn. There is a full script for the narrator and 4 characters - Tiggy the farm cat, the Moon, Farmer Fred and Farmer Molly. Tiggy the cat and the Moon are friends. As the Harvest approaches, Tiggy explains to the moon what will happen to the wheat in Farmer Fred and Farmer Molly’s field. A performance of The Harvest Moon takes approximately 20 minutes and is easy to learn and stage. I have provided a vocal track and backing track for each song

ANIMALEASE An Introduction to Music Making, Notation and Rhythm (With MP3 Audio)

ANIMALEASE An Introduction to Music Making, Notation and Rhythm (With MP3 Audio)

Music making should be fun, irrespective of age and ability. The purpose of this guide is to provide the foundations of rhythm that can be used in a variety of learning environments. It will introduce a person to musical notation using animal names that will already be familiar to them. It works by chanting the animal names in time to a given pulse. Linking this then to a group of written musical notes to sing, tap, bang, shout, or whistle. This is not a step by step guide and we encourage anyone who uses this book to develop their own ideas using the framework. No two Animalease sessions will be the same and nor should they be. Children often see this method as a game (this is completely fine), and as it uses information that they already possess, the pupil has less to think about. This results in a more relaxed performance and learning environment. The focus should always be on active music making (but ensure that it is always in time). We have found over the years of using this method that the vast majority of pupils would be able to perform the following information in a short space of time. Before using this method, many pupils thought that making sense of written music would be very difficult. Pupils already familiar with the conventional counting method also found it useful and, in many cases, preferred it. We feel that the use of the animal names not only helps the pupil but also makes it accessible for someone who may not be confident to deliver music lessons, making Animalease a great tool for many primary school teachers. This resource comes with MP3 Files for demonstration purposes. Enjoy! Steve & Ben
