Markbook and Assessment Log Spreadsheet

Markbook and Assessment Log Spreadsheet

This is a powerful spreadsheet markbook and assessment log. As a teacher, there are so many areas to assess and keep track of. This spreadsheet can almost do it all for you! All calculations update the overall mark, average, grade and percentage. It has taken years of making changes and edits to come up with this final version. This is best suited for teachers who have students for a number of subjects (eg infant/elementary/primary classes), but could assist year advisers in high school. Even if you wanted to just use one subject area, this will work fine. What does it do? - calculates averages - calculates totals - calculates term, semester and yearly marks, percentages and position - produces a position/rank for terms, semesters, subjects and overall - provides a grade (A-E) depending on your scale - allows adaptable scaling of subjects (eg English worth 20% of overall mark, Maths 18% etc) - seven subject areas available - records spelling, homework and home reading, and provides a mark for behaviour - provides a reward amount, depending on your scale - most areas are adaptable for your individual situation

Rainforest Poetry

Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
