Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. Differentiation is essential naturally with all sessions geared towards alternative learning for this criterion of young people. This project has been particularly successful when embedded with gardening sessions, ICT sessions as well as social skills building sessions. The idea behind this session plan is to encourage young people to explore and role play (optional) in an adventure just like Ash Ketchum the main character in the popular Pokemon series. Exploring the nearby nature find bugs and catch them with the intention of observing them and making key comparisons against Pokemon. Worksheets involve making posters and creating your own Pokedex to record your findings. Additonal challenges encourage young people to go above and beyond to achieve extra rewards. The beauty is not all young people have to enjoy Pokemon to engage in this session, being interested in bugs, mini beasts and insects in general is also perfect! This session will embed being outdoors, writing opportunities, computer skills development, research skills as well as social interaction.

Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

10 PIECE DOWNLOAD ✔️ Improve mastery skills, develop self-esteem and encourage positive thinking. ✔️ Create engaging and thought-provoking discussions. ✔️ Provide opportunities for all learners to develop reasoning skills and build self-esteem. ✔️ Perfect for small group interventions and whole class lessons. Life By Shape resources can help improve mastery skills in two ways: showing how images can be used to represent problems or ideas giving an opportunity for children to discuss and reason Each Life By Shape resource included in this package shows words of inspiration and motivation represented by an image of shape. Using images to represent Each image has been designed to represent (or show) a motivational message. The key here is for children to try and imagine that each shape within an image represents an individual person. Once children understand this concept, the discussions really start flowing. Discussing & Reasoning Here are some possible questions that children could be asked to generate some discussions. How does the image relate to the words? Why do you think the bottom left square is different? And what could this represent? Why is the bottom left square a different colour to the rest? Why are all of the other shapes in a perfect pattern? If you were one of these squares, which one would you be? It’s important to remember that there does not have to be a right answer. The point of this is to give children an opportunity to express their thoughts through discussions and reasoning by ‘agreeing’ or ‘disagreeing’ with other children. How can Life By Shape resources help to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking? Each Life By Shape resource has a message of inspiration or motivation for children. Combined with discussions, all types of learners can access and understand important messages to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking.

Positive Postcards

Positive Postcards

The two images can be printed back to back in colour on white card. The front of the positive postcard shows a superhero holding up a rainbow with the words ‘Power of Positivity’. The writing side of the postcard includes a positive poem to encourage children to believe in themselves and boost their confidence. There is space to write a short message as well as an address which can be sent home or it could be the class name and school address. I used these for several purposes: Improve mental health and well-being. Engage children with behaviour problems catching them doing something postive. As a reward system. Given to children who have low self-esteem and confidence. If used in the class room rather than sent home, I would leave it in the child’s place at the end of the day so it was a surprise for them in the morning. Please note: The cover image only shows part of the postive postcard logo.
