Remote Learning Well-Being Check In Google Forms

(0)
If you are moving to remote learning via Google Classroom and are wanting to do check ins with your students to check on their well-being, then these Google Forms are an effective way of doing this. This set contains 4 different attractive Google forms for you to use with your students. Simply post them on Google Classroom to get a check in and take attendance at the same time! The forms included are: • Morning Meeting Google Form Check In: check on your students’ well-being and how they are feeling, and give them an opportunity to share important information with you and have that 1:1 attention if they need it. • Afternoon Meeting Google Form Check In: check on your students’ well-being and progress on the day. You can compare how they’re feeling from the morning, discover what they have learned and enjoyed, and what they’ve found challenging so you can cater to their needs in the future. • Initial Remote Learning Google Form Check In: Gain an understanding on your student’s learning environment at home. In your classroom you can control the learning environment, but once it comes to remote learning that is out of your hands. Learn what kind of device, internet access and study space they have as well as what their initial concerns are. • Interim Remote Learning Google Form Check In: As remote learning is a new playing field for many of us, it’s important to regularly check in on your students to see how they are finding the experience. With this form you will learn what they are finding valuable and gain an insight into what might help improve their remote learning experience in the future. You can still be the caring teacher you love being, even without being able to see your students face to face with these well-being check in forms for remote learning.

You will find physical activities to get them up and about, moving and talking to one another and finding things in common, helping the group to improve their social skills in talking, bonding and making new friends.

Well-being Journal for students and teachers

Well-being Journal for students and teachers

(0)
Make it your mission this year to take your life back with this well-being journal. Use for yourself or issue to your students to help them keep a journal of their life so they can reflect as well as set targets and track their progress to build positive habits. We’re all so busy and we give so much to other people that self-care often goes on the back burner. It’s crucial we take care of our well-being as it affects the way we feel and think, the way we cope with life’s challenges and how we can make the most of our potential.​ If we neglect to make an effort to take care of our well-being we can find ourselves stressed, jaded, unfulfilled or feeling trapped. After getting overwhelmed with life as a teacher, I started to set and track my progress in habits I wanted to create, as well as journaling. It has been essential in helping me form good habits and take care of my emotional state too. By recording my journey, I have been able to spot patterns in my mood over the course of a year and I’m now able to plan ahead, manage my life effectively and look after my well-being. With this journal, you and your students can have that same control and emotional freedom! Journal includes: 70 pages Every page is hand rendered in zentangle style for mindful colouring Monthly journal pages for brief journaling Weekly journal pages for brief journaling Daily journal pages, both with prompts and plain for more detailed journaling Prompts encourage you to focus on achievement, self-care and future thoughts Daily tracker with 4 point system to monitor and review well-being each day Monthly gratitude jar keepsake to record daily joys 12 different zentangle themes for each month to add variety 4 different types of trackers: mood, sleep, exercise and one for your own habits​ Benefits: It’s so easy to get caught up in day to day life that your well-being falls by the wayside but having somewhere to record your thoughts, feelings, memories and emotions puts these in the forefront of your mind ensuring you focus on them. Journaling has been proven to reduce physical disease symptoms and anxiety, enhance self-esteem and increase self-awareness. It can improve your self love and help you become really in tune with your own thoughts and emotions. Writing engages both the left and right side of the brain, enhancing problem solving capabilities. When you journal, you can go back and identify patterns to help you in the future as well as identify areas of personal growth to help you celebrate your successes. Overall, promotes well-being by allowing you to monitor your mental, physical and emotional wellness.

If you are a form tutor or are required to write a reference for your students, then this resource will really help you out! This should help make the process of writing UCAS / Job references for your students much easier for you, whilst giving your students the opportunity to take ownership of their reference. This is especially helpful if you are a new tutor and haven’t had the opportunity to learn much about your students yet, as they will tell you everything you need to know with this resource!

This is a 2 page resource which could be printed double sided. One side is for students to fill out and the other is a guide with some examples to help direct them and ensure they consider all their achievements and qualities.

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

(1)
Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder (Includes most up to date standards from June 2013) With Performance Related Pay now in full swing for teachers, it is more important than ever to document the evidence to prove that you are meeting the standard requirements which enable you to earn a pay rise, or at least remain at the top of the scale. Oftentimes during the appraisal meeting season in September, we are reflecting on our achievements from the previous academic year but it can be difficult to remember everything we have done if we rely only on our memory! It is also often confusing to know where we can find evidence to prove we have met the standards; this is why I created this resource. Tired of being less than inspired by dull blankets of text and confusing layouts of these standards, I decided to design something a little more aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate and organise evidence with. With this 20 page binder, you can clearly see each of the standards and you have a simple and efficient system of both making quick notes and recording hard evidence of how you are meeting the standards. So get organised with your performance management and ensure you get the pay you deserve as a teacher! **************************************************** • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!

Self-confidence colouring affirmation cards

Self-confidence colouring affirmation cards

(0)
Self-confidence affirmation cards for teachers and teens - colour in, reflect and really believe with these 10 colouring affirmation cards! Self-confidence is a fundamental factor in success and many of our youth in this day and age are lacking that self-belief they can succeed. We often hear "I can't do this", "I'm rubbish at this", "I can't do it on my own, you have to help me"... What some teachers have tried to do is introduce positive affirmations that students are to repeat over and over again. The idea is nice, but does it really work? Does saying something make it true? Well, at best we might get a temporary high or feel motivated for a short time, but in the long term it’s less likely to have lasting effects and that's because we are actually missing a very important step. Now picture yourself being the teacher who is able to help their student really believe these affirmations. Your students are able to believe it because you're helping them see the truth in these statements for themselves. With this pack of 10 affirmation cards, you can be that teacher. You will be giving your students some quiet reflection time where they can color in positive affirmations, but they will also be reflecting on some very significant and tailored questions that will help them prove that the affirmation they are stating is the truth. In time, you will see their self-confidence begin to flourish and success will be inevitable thanks to your guidance! There are 10 different cards to choose from in this set. Each quote comes in both postcard and business card size, ideal for keeping in wallets, lockers and pin boards etc. These are designed to be coloured in and then folded in half and glued together to keep forever - you could even have them laminated for maximum longevity! ​The great thing about these being colouring affirmations is, one, it saves on ink and money (hooray!), two it allows time for mindfulness where your students can sit and relax for a few minutes reflecting on the statement and questions, and three it personalises each card to help your students connect with it more - seeing their doodles reminds them of how they were feeling when they were colouring it in and answering the questions in their mind! By spending time colouring these in, you will give your students time to be creative and then associate that feeling when they look at the cards again in the future. It’s all mind games and using the power of our brains to achieve our potential. These would even be effective on us as teachers too, so give them a try and give you and your students the opportunity to just focus, motivate and enjoy yourselves today – you deserve it!

Distance Learning Parent Feedback Check In Google Forms

(0)
If you are now exploring the new world of distance learning, chances are you, your students and their parents are all in a bit of a panic right now as everything is so new! At least you can have communication with your students via tools such as Google Classroom, but how are parents and guardians coping with this new home schooling life? You can control the environment in your own classroom, but you cannot control their study space or environment at home, so this is where you need some parental feedback. Now the tables have turned, so it is important to reach out to parents and find out how they’re getting on and what they’re seeing at their end. You can’t see your students right now so it’s harder for you to gauge how they’re doing. Getting parental feedback is paramount to everyone’s success. These Google forms will gain you valuable insight into a range of areas. The forms included are: • Initial Parental Information: gain an overview of what environment their child has for studying at home: in particular what kind of devices, internet access, and study space they have access to. • Schedule Parental Information: gain an overall insight into how much support the parents are realistically able to offer at home, judgment free, and how much digital time they would prefer / are able to offer their child every day. • Interim Parental Feedback: Find out how parents are coping with home schooling and how they feel their children are really doing. Get valuable feedback on specific lessons / activities / topics that are going well, and which are more challenging. With this form you will learn what is working best and gain an insight into what might help their distance learning experiences in the future.
