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.

Random Acts of Kindness - Primary School Assembly Script and Presentation

This assembly can be used for 17th February Each year for the UK National Random Acts of Kindness Day or World Kindness day on 13th November. The presentation is very "picture heavy" so the script is light to allow pupils to respond to the images.

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.

Food Dobble

Food Dobble

This is my version of a popular game - Dobble. Dobble is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. Each card in Dobble features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next. Any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. For the basic Spot it! game, reveal one card, then another. Whoever spots the symbol in common on both cards claims the first card, then another card is revealed for players to search, and so on. Whoever has collected the most cards when the 55-card deck runs out wins! I hope you find it useful. Please, leave a review I will be very grateful!
