The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 20th, 2018 is a teaching and learning activity based on the events of last week’s news. There is a crossword on last week’s news events, there are two background/explainer search and cloze puzzles (The Venezuela crisis and Jerusalem), and there is another crossword based on a country mentioned in the news crossword (this week it’s Comoros). What happened in last week’s news? India inaugurated a hydro-electric dam that prompted protests from Pakistan because it affects water flowing into the Indus River. Ebola cases were reported in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and 4000 vaccine doses arrived in Kinshasa. Comoros’ ex-president was arrested on charges relating to selling citizenship. Malaysia’s ex-PM’s residence was raided of bags of cash and jewelry. A mountain lion killed a mountain biker in the US. Hawaii’s volcano erupted, prompting more evacuations. Australia and the US were the only countries to vote against a UN investigation into the Israeli killings of Palestinians in Gaza. The two background/explainer puzzles aim to teach more about ongoing news stories. This week there is an explanation of why Jerusalem is central to the Middle East troubles. There is also an explanation of Venezuela’s economic and human crisis. These puzzles are excellent for driving students’ research skills. When students work in small groups they learn cooperation and team work. They help with concentration and, of course, handwriting. But best of all, these puzzles generate real-world discussions. The students leave the less asking questions like, ‘Why would North Korea even want nuclear weapons and why does the US care?’ ‘Why does China want a military base in the South China Sea?’ ‘Why have some UK supermarkets added a ‘plastic-free’ label on some products?’

The more students utilize the charts, the more the classroom as a whole and the student as an individual, will benefit.

This, in return, allows for a positive classroom environment with less confusion and more understanding between students and teachers. -There are 24 feelings included: aggressive, angry, annoyed, bored, calm, cold, confident, confused, disappointed, embarrassed, excited, friendly, frustrated, funny, grumpy, happy, hot, hungry, hurt, lazy, motivated, nervous, overwhelmed, proud, quiet, sad, scared, shy, sick, silly, surprised, tired -One large feelings chart.

The World News Crossword - May 13th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 13th, 2018

The World News Crossword - May 13th, 2018 is a simple PDF document that contains: A crossword based on the events of last week’s news, A Search & Cloze puzzle that explains the plastic pollution problem, A Search & Cloze puzzle that explains the Rohingya Crisis, and A crossword about Climate Change. (The answers are included.) So what happened in last week’s news? Rohingya refugees were killed by wild elephants in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. The US-imposed tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint has raised the cost of US newspapers’ newsprint. A Pakistan court ruled that a US diplomat who allegedly killed a motorcyclist while driving drunk does not have diplomatic immunity. Iraq and East Timor held elections. Moldova’s government ruled out reunification talks with Romania. Poland’s government cut its politicians’ salaries and Zimbabwe’s government raised the pensions and salaries of war veterans and government workers. Israel won the Eurovision song contest, the sea off San Diego glowed blue, and India’s prime minister opened a hydro-electric construction project in Nepal. But it’s less about what happened and more about why. Why are a million Rohingya people living in squalid refugee camps in Bangladesh? Why did US air force planes intercept Russian bombers of the Alaskan coast and why did Chinese air force planes fly around Taiwan? Why is the US president meeting the North Korean leader? Why did Malaysia elect a 92 year old prime minister? Why are Africans still dying of hunger and Ebola? These puzzles are a simple and effective teaching tool for research skills (finally, they can use their smart-phones for something useful), for collaborative learning (because these puzzles work really well when students work in pairs or small groups), for reasoning skills and handwriting skills… We’ve had positive feedback from teachers using the puzzles with ADHD students and with GATE students, in PSHE / homeroom lessons, in English, Economics, Geography, Business… (some teachers even say they make staff meetings bearable - cheeky, eh?) A new World News Crossword resource is published every week.

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

This 24-page booklet is intended to prepare children and young people for meetings that they are invited to attend. This could be a termly or annual review, looked after child review or any meeting where the pupil’s voice is really valued (as recommended in the SEN code of practice). It is intentionally simple to accommodate a range of needs and ages. By preparing pupils well beforehand, they will better understand the purpose of these meetings, be more fully engaged in them and have a lasting record of the decisions made there. It is also hoped that the owners of this book will be encouraged to personalise the booklet by adding their own photo next to the box on the front cover alongside a drawing that they have coloured in. Some images to colour in are included along with drawings of people (if a photo is not available). Additionally, there are some bubble letters to use should they want to put their initials on the front cover. If not, those pages do not need to be included in their booklet. It is intended that appropriate text and photos will be added to each page in whatever way is most meaningful to the young person. A visual timetable and a ground rules prompt is also included to laminate and display prominently at the start of and throughout the meeting. The typeface of the booklet has been deliberately sized and coloured to be accessible to those with visual impairments and difficulties processing text.

The World News Crossword - April 29th, 2018

The World News Crossword - April 29th, 2018

The World News Crossword document is a one-page crossword based on the events of last week’s news. There are also two one-page ‘Search and Cloze’ puzzles: Facebook users’ personal data and What started the Syrian civil war? These extra puzzles give students the opportunity to learn a little more about two recent news events. The crossword includes questions the EU ban on an insecticide that’s been killing bees for years, Japan’s objection to the mango mousse at the North and South Korea summit, and the really big news about the Tasmanian devils. There was also big news that Australia’s government is spending 500 million dollars to rescue the Great Barrier Reef and a university in Melbourne was evacuated because of a toxic gas leak (which turned out to be stinky rotting fruit in a library cupboard). But it’s less about what happened last week around the world and more about why. That’s the discussion that students will create among themselves as they complete this crossword. Why are India and China having a border dispute? Why did Myanmar’s sort-of leader contact the UN and not just lead her country? Why is a virus killing indigenous Australians? Why is Facebook making so much money? Or how? Why is Saudi Arabia at war with Yemen? What does the rodent population in New Zealand have to do with climate change? The World News Crossword is an excellent homework activity because it encourages students to watch or read the news. It’s an excellent group-activity for home room because it encourages students to use their IT for research. It’s an excellent activity for encouraging problem-solving skills.

Carrot Dip: A visual one page recipe to make Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Dip.

A visual one page recipe to make Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Dip. It has visual images to assist in easy reading of this recipe. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. This notebook is designed for the students to use it as a visual sequence when cooking. They have all the ingredients and utensils needed and then an easy to follow recipe. It has an inbuilt shopping activity so that the cooking can be integrated into a shopping program. Within the shopping part which encourages literacy skills, students can choose what they will buy and then make their own shopping list by either writing it or sticking the associated visual onto their shopping list. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match the ingredients as well as a writing sheet. At my school, my students run a in-school cafe for staff and visitors and dips are also a favourite for our customers.
