'Your Fantastic Elastic Brain' Scheme of Work for ages 4-11

'Your Fantastic Elastic Brain' Scheme of Work for ages 4-11

'Your Fantastic Elastic Brain’ is a fun and engaging book in which children can learn about the vast capabilities of the brain, and how we all have the ability to stretch and grow our own brains to create the happiest, healthiest human being possible! The book also delivers crucial information about the anatomy and basic functions of the brain, in a graphic and interesting way, and conveys the important message that making mistakes is a positive thing in learning. I created this scheme of work as a follow up for teachers after reading the book in class, with a lesson plan per year group from reception to year 6, where students can reflect on the messages conveyed in the book, and how they could use the insightful information from the book in their own lives. Included in this scheme of work: -1 lesson per year group for years reception to year 6 with 3 activities (starter, main activity, plenary) and adaptations for more and less-able students -Worksheets to accompany some of the activities **A powerpoint with engaging and visual slides is also available to buy to accompany each lesson plan **

SOUL COLLECTOR ~ When A Spirit Speaks from Beyond > Compelling & True Story!

SOUL COLLECTOR ~ When A Spirit Speaks from Beyond > Compelling & True Story!

When a spirit reaches out from the other side, it wants something. Be it acknowledgment, or notice, or freedom from entrapment. It may be as simple as to communicate with another living being. Or to tell its story. Visit one special property where an estranged spirit disrupts its new family. Disoriented, this troubled soul captures the attention of all who trespass, but in particular it attaches to one human who was receptive to its advances. Through a series of intriguing encounters a connection was made that transcended time and space. Curiosity drove both sides to explore and seek the truth. Walk within the bounds of this totally true and riveting tale to discover the events that helped two souls meet across the veil and resolve their karma.
