Time Saving Marking Feedback Sheets

Time Saving Marking Feedback Sheets

This resource is an excel spreadsheet that will save you having to write out the same WWWs and EBIs for your class. This has made my marking much faster and simpler. The students like it as it is easy to understand and they do a good amount of responding to their feedback in their books. The method that I use is shown below (best used when you pick a task, then mark that specific task, for example, task with a success criteria, some exam questions, essay or worksheet). Enter the name of the assessment on the ‘Page Set-up’ sheet (add date if you want). Enter the type of assessment on the ‘Page Set-up’ sheet. Copy over student names from SIMS in to ‘Page Set-up’ sheet. Mark all work. Enter several WWW and EBIs into the ‘WWW&EBI’ sheet. For each person enter 2 WWW and 2 EBI numbers into the A column for the WWWs and the C column for the EBIs . The columns on the right (B for WWWs and D for EBIs) will be automatically populated. Print all (I do it on yellow paper).

Blurt display behaviour management

Blurt display behaviour management

This display is a great way to get the children in your class to stop calling out. It is a simple display that makes it clear that the only time it is okay to ‘blurt’ out is if there is an emergency or someone is unsafe. The rest of the time, they should put their hands up. My kids love this display and often refer each other to it when they do the wrong thing.

Stress - Busting tips for tired teachers - the full resource, 10 techniques

Stress - Busting tips for tired teachers - the full resource, 10 techniques

This set of ten resources are designed by an experienced and qualified yoga teacher. They are designed to help release both physical and mental stress, after a long day in the classroom. Mental stress can manifest itself as physical discomfort, such as tension headaches or tight breathing; and physical tension will cause mental/emotional distress - all are interlinked. The techniques can be ‘cherry-picked’ i.e. they do not have to be done all at once, or in a particular order. Each one need only take a few minutes, (or longer if preferred). Yoga practices frequently show an instant benefit; however it is not just a quick fix and repeated practice will accrue greater benefits. If you like these resources please leave feedback.

Supply Teacher Folder

Supply Teacher Folder

Whenever a teacher needs a day off for sickness or a course, it can sometimes feel like more work to not be in school than it is to be in it. I created this document to make leaving my class with a supply teacher easier for all involved. I know how hard supply teachers work and I know how hard it is to walk into a class and not know the children or the timetable. This folder allows you to keep all the crucial information that a supply teacher needs to know about your class. Just edit the document and include everything that a supply teacher could need to know, print it off, put it in a folder and leave it on your desk! I’ve included a supply teacher feedback form in the download so you can be easily updated on how the day went, who behaved, messages you missed etc
