Loo Advent - Assembly/Form Time/Lesson

This is very thrown together - even by my standards - but it's a message worth sharing. It's a very basic PowerPoint with a brief history of advent, but more importantly the work of Sarah Brisdion who has set up #Looadvent and #Changingplaces to improve access in disabled toilets.

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Imagine a game where the challenge and skirmish is governed based on experience and knowledge of the game without using luck as its driving source. Yes, a game played that is not determined by the roll of the dice, swiping up or down, or flipping a card. This game is called chess. Since before the 6th century AD, chess is considered to be one of the oldest games ever invented. Today your students probably think chess is old and boring, right. A game that has best left in the dark old days before PlayStation and Angry Birds? But wait! This chess set is like none other. This chess set is large-scaled, highly visual, and even glows in the dark. Each piece has its own light embedded which illuminates the entire game board in complete darken. This chess set will look great in your classroom! All you need to do is watch how your students flock towards it. In this package you will receive the templates for each chess piece even the board in which they lie. This is a great chess set to learn how to play the game and in style. Looking at each piece in detail, on their backside, you can see a brief description of how it moves as well as an illustration. This is very helpful for new players. With the lights turned off, the instructions can also be read even more so. On the top of each piece shows a side view which makes it very helpful if you want to play looking down at the board. All you have to do is cut, laminate and hot glue a LED light to each piece and you are ready to go. This project is fun especially if you work with your students to build it. Assembling the game board is self-fulfilling and even therapeutic if you like DYI projects. The quality is amazing and you will never find a chess set that is so innovative and unique!
