Life Goals! A motivational and interactive workbook

Life Goals! A motivational and interactive workbook

This workbook has been designed as an interactive, thought provoking and interesting guide to life for those disenfranchised students that need that extra motivation and support in school and designed by a school SENCO. It has 14 pages packed full of questions, activities, puzzles and tasks, all designed to make students question, what am I doing this for? It can be used with students who have been removed from mainstream lessons/placed in an isolation room, students that have arrived on a placement from another school, or even just to help students look at what they want their future to be! It has been highly successful in it’s current setting, and works best when a student is working individually, or as part of a group with teacher facilitation, it gives an opportunity for you to learn more about a student, what motivates them, makes them tick, and what you can do to support them where perhaps others are currently failing. Designed as a running document with fun rest breaks in between, student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Especially the equipment Maze!

Student's  response and  reflection on their work - before the teacher marks their work

Student's response and reflection on their work - before the teacher marks their work

This can be used across the school to encourage student to reflect on their literacy development and self-editing skills. If you print two slides per 1 piece of A4 it can be easily glued in after a student has completed the work and before the teacher marks it. It is useful for ensuring students are critically assessing their own work so they become independent learners. Also, it’s good for showing progression if you’re planning on getting students to re-draft their work after you’ve marked it.

Outstanding English Lesson Hook - iPhone Character Message

Outstanding English Lesson Hook - iPhone Character Message

Get the children’s imaginations flowing with this text message generator. This PowerPoint allows you to edit text messages as if they had come from anyone. It may be a message from the Gingerbread man or the 3 little pigs. The first slide acts as if the screen isn’t in use. The next pretends to bring up ‘your iPhone’ with the message from the chosen person. When you click (works best with a clicker) the slide will look like your replying. Clicking again saying “send” will send your preprepared message. Give it 4 seconds and your character will reply without you having to press anything. (Remember to type in your reply, it doesn’t generate that part). Then repeat the process again to have a conversation as long as you want. It even has real text noises! A genuinely excellent resource that has so much flexibility. This is an excellent resource! Always thought of creating something like this. Please review and let me know what you used it for! Mr H

My Vegan Child - A Resource for Educators

My Vegan Child - A Resource for Educators

My Vegan Child is a free online resource for parents, teachers and caregivers of vegan children. The booklet was created in collaboration with a group of vegan parents and educators. We wanted to communicate in a way that would inform our children’s teachers on veganism and to navigate potential sensitive areas such as food, nutrition and animal welfare. With more and more families becoming vegan, it is important that educators and carers gain an insight into the perspective of the vegan children they teach. Veganism is much more than just a diet. The information provided both in the booklet, and on this website, will help create a more inclusive learning environment for vegan children, as well as ideas and links for including humane education in teaching programs for all. Printing Info: Open pdf file in Adobe Acrobat Reader (download Adobe for free here). Choose print, then select ‘booklet’ as an option.

99 lesson tasks from 10 objects for any subject - Teaching & Learning idea

99 lesson tasks from 10 objects for any subject - Teaching & Learning idea

As Humanities Faculty Leader I have always looked for ways to help the team to easily plan creative and collaborative learning. I have developed this idea over a few years and it has been well used in my department and around the school - at my school there aren’t enough classrooms and teachers are always in and out of each others’ rooms to teach lessons here and there. You can’t carry much with you and your lesson may suffer by not having all your usual resources to hand if you need to adapt the lesson. The concept here is that with the 10 inexpensive resources on the top row you can do the 99 lesson activities underneath. Once you’ve got your head around the different activities, you have effectively planned for spontaneity! Crucially, all ten resources can fit into a ‘toolbox’ no bigger than a shoebox which you can keep under your desk for those moments when the lesson is not going to plan. I observe a lot of trainee teachers and the number 1 thing I see that pulls a lesson down is the lack of interaction with what is happening in the classroom - with this concept teachers have 99 ideas up their sleeve to rescue a lesson with, rather than sticking to the lesson plan rigidly. If you were doing your training or NQT year at my school then this is one of the first techniques that our Teaching & Learning team will teach you. You would be given a box (by me!) and then challenged to use all 99 activities in 2 weeks. I think new teachers need ideas for lesson tasks and strategies for dealing with the unexpected, not volumes of theory! Its also something our cover supervisors have with them as they go from room to room trying to teach the best lesson they can with very little preparation. I’m not suggesting its a good idea not to prep a lesson, but the reality is that there will always be a time when you need to pull an activity out of your sleeve or ‘wing’ a lesson - this resource is for just those situations. You will get the file as a word document that will print to A3, but you can adjust the paper size in settings. It is an unlocked word document in case you decide you want to add or change it for your own use - the art of being a magpie is something else I encourage our new teachers with!

Self and Peer Assessment SPAG Check_2018

Self and Peer Assessment SPAG Check_2018

** Please leave a review. Thank you ** What is this resource? This is a simple to use (tried and tested) self and peer pssessment SPAG check using literacy notations. How do I use it? The teacher uses these codes when they mark the pupils’ work. The students then use a green pen and use the teacher’s codes to correct their work before re-drafting their writing (minus the errors). Alternatively, the check sheet can be used as a peer assessment task – again using a green pen - or as a simple self-assessment task after the teacher has marked the pupils’ exercise book. In this instance, the student examines the corrections the teacher has made and amends the SPAG errors (using the codes) in a green pen. **Who is it for? ** Whole School Literacy Curriculum links? Whole School Marking Policies, Literacy Programmes and Literacy Support Sessions Practical Tips? It works well as a 10 min starter - if you’re handing back feedback at the beginning of lesson and want to show progression in practice
