Being Determined - lesson & worksheet

Being Determined - lesson & worksheet

**Exploring what we know about being determined through sharing of previous experiences and reflecting on strategies used. ** As adults we know too well the importance of being determined towards a goal, and that its only a determined attitude that will keep us going when we hit a tough point in our journey. Teach kids this great life lesson, whilst developing sentence structure, self reflection and use of words to express emotion, through 3 main questions: 1- have you ever been determined to achieve a goal? 2- what strategies did you use to achieve it? 3- what did it feel like when you achieved it? Invite children to discuss these questions and to share their strategies and experiences with the group. Worksheet on being determined. For key stage 2. Based on the book Ernie Gonzales: The Determined Dreamer. Download includes printable worksheet. Copyright Beth Shepherd.

Curling Winter Olympics Vocabulary game for Interactive Whiteboard

Curling Winter Olympics Vocabulary game for Interactive Whiteboard

Tying in with the Winter Olympics 2018, this is a curling game which I have used for MFL lessons (ask differentiated vocabulary and / or conjugation questions to decide who goes first, and whether students can launch a stone / how many stones they are allowed to launch). Points are gathered either by ‘zone’ the stone is touching, e.g. 1 for outer (blue), 2 for outer white, 3 for red and 4 for inner white, or (like the real curling game) you score depending on how close you are to the middle. If the closest stone is red or yellow, that team gets 1 point. If the second closest is the SAME colour, that team gets 2 points. If it is a different colour, the closest team only gets 1 point, etc. Users simply flick the stone from behind one of the two lines (for left- and right-handed players) towards the house and the scores are totalled after all 8 have been thrown.

Going on a Journey to your Dreams - Creative writing & vocabulary activity.

Going on a Journey to your Dreams - Creative writing & vocabulary activity.

What does it take to go on a journey to reach a goal/dream? A good positive and resilient attitude is needed to succeed. Use this resource and activity, to teach children a range of new vocabulary on the theme of being determined, and then let them decide which new words they would need for their journey to their own dreams. Next explore how they can encourage themselves when it gets tough by making a title for themselves just like Ernie's awesome title; The Determined Dreamer, and decide what they will say to themselves when they feel like giving up. A complete lesson based on the book 'Ernie Gonzales: The Determined Dreamer'. Can be used with or without the novel. Optional extra activity is a creative writing exercise to consolidate the theme and the new vocabulary learnt, see other resources. Suggested uses: for PHSE topics such as going for goals within a literacy and creative writing context, useful as a whole class activity or in a small group with a greater focus on personal development, goal setting and self belief. Or can be used with the main focus being on the introduction of new words and incorporating them into a creative writing exercise. Also, if used with the book, suggested chapters can be read for further exploration of the topic, interpreting authors meaning and use of language and comprehension.

Winter Olympics 2018  Lesson/Assembly Presentation

Winter Olympics 2018 Lesson/Assembly Presentation

Now that the 2018 Winter Olympics are more than half-way through, help your students to improve their understanding of all that's going on by showing them this interactive PowerPoint presentation. Included are links to 24 short videos that show you top athletes performing in each of the sports. Some of these videos are amazing . I totally recommend watching Steven Bradbury’s unbelievable Gold Medal win in the 2002 Olympics – it really shows the perils of Short-Track Speed Skating! The topics covered within the presentation include: Location and dates, Venues and the stadiums The emblems and mascots The events and their pictograms. Note that the presentation contains interactive buttons which allow you to jump to different parts of the presentation and then return. My recommendation is that you go through the presentation slide by slide until you get to the information on the venues. From here, I recommend that you select the particular sports that take your interest. If you have a live Internet connection, then watch some of the videos – especially the ones that I’ve labelled with 5-stars. If you like this presentation then please leave a review.
