πŸ•‘ Essential Teacher Resources πŸ•‘ Timetables for Revision, Parents' Evening & Teachers

The most interesting resource here is my idea for a FLEXIBLE revision timetable that worked very well with my daughter and was later loved by many of my students. The most important rule is: You don't fill anything out in advance. Let's say on Monday you really feel like doing some maths (obviously) and also your French teacher has set you a revision task. So you spend the evening studying maths and French. I usually advise between 30 mins and an hour on each subject depending on the strength of the student, so a total of 1-2 hours per evening. After studying, you fill out the Monday slot with what you actually did e.g. Maths: Trigonometry, French: Shopping vocab, and, most importantly, you cross off an "M" and an "F" from the subject grid at the end. This is repeated all week, but you're only allowed to study subjects that you haven't crossed off. By the weekend you're left to study the final remaining two subjects, and this ensures that you spend a fair amount of time on every subject without forcing you to do a specific one each day. This also leaves Sunday free to either relax or to catch up with any subjects you missed during the week for whatever reason. The subject grid can be modified to include multiple squares for more important or weaker subjects. For example in the attached version English is Poi's second language so we assigned three out of the twelve slots. Also included: πŸ•‘ An aesthetically-designed set of timetables for a biweekly teacher's timetable. πŸ•‘ A simple Parents' Evening timetable to put outside the room for parents to refer to. 🌟😊🌟 PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE 🌟😊🌟

🌚 Resources for a New Class 🌚 Info Sheets, Book Inserts & Activities

A selection of thoughtful resources to use with a new class, including: 🌚 Guidelines for a student "Neat Book": A personalised revision guide, separate from their normal book of solutions and workings, where they explain clearly their own understanding of each topic for future revision and for peer teaching. 🌚 A student info sheet where they have to draw pictures to represent their interests and career plans for you to incorporate into future lessons. 🌚 An introduction to the classroom rules & ethos. 🌚 An student voice activity for students to rank what they think is most important to learn. 🌚 An insert for students to create a Contents Page for each Learning Objective and rate the topic for understanding at the start and end of the lesson, and to rate their enjoyment and participation. 🌚 A sheet for students to write down their hobbies and interests so that they can be incorporated into future maths lessons. 🌚 A poster for the classroom door asking students to line up in alphabetical order. 🌚 A multiple choice PowerPoint where students have to guess which of the interesting things I have really done in my life (you can adapt it for yourself of course). [PLOT TWIST: All the options are true for me!] 🌚 A discussion for a new teacher to have with a mature class. 🌚 Scrabble Game: Students work out the score of their name by adding the letter scores, e.g. BEN = 3+1+1=5. Then see if you get a different class winner if you work out the product instead, e.g. BEN = 3x1x1=3. For more advanced classes you can work out the exponent (3^1^1=3) and discuss the order that the exponent operation follows. 🌟😊🌟 PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE 🌟😊🌟
