My Peaceful Place  - A collection of pictures and images to comfort and heal

My Peaceful Place - A collection of pictures and images to comfort and heal

This 144-page book contains nine original short stories and many more images to comfort and heal the tired teacher's soul. It is the perfect go-to escape after a long day. Envision yourself in the many places I have depicted in images and words. Or, keep this book in your desk drawer for a ten-minute trip to a different environment. You might even share these stories with your students. See if they can develop a different story for the pictures, or a different ending for the story I have written. My Peaceful Place is also perfect as a gift for a hospitalized friend or a grandparent in a nursing home... anyone who is unable to get out into the world and enjoy all that nature has to offer. ​Research shows that the healing effects of natural scenes are increasingly being understood as helpful in stressful environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, and even remote military sites. Simply seeing nature is important to people and is an effective means of relieving stress and improving well-being. Apparently, it is not necessary to actually experience nature, simply looking at it even remotely, provides a calming effect. Go to My Peaceful Place and I'm sure it will become YOUR PEACEFUL PLACE, too! Go to my primary website, www.reneeheissart.com for a sample story!

Yiddish Words Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords KS4 Settler Starter Cover Lesson English RE

Yiddish Words Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords KS4 Settler Starter Cover Lesson English RE

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Yiddish Words'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

'The Rainbow Serpent' painting activity for children

'The Rainbow Serpent' painting activity for children

I created this resource as part of ' International Week' at my school. The activity involves creating a story map of the Dreamtime story 'The Rainbow Serpent' then using traditional dot-painting techniques to dot-paint parts of the story. The children were really interested in the story and the technique of painting, and it made a great display!
