FREEBIE Useful Report Card Word Bank

FREEBIE Useful Report Card Word Bank

For those of us that still include teacher provided feedback on report cards, this is a great tool to take your writing to the next level. Presenting yourself professionally matters and with this extensive list you will find ample adjectives that can be used to describe any student that may cross your path. This can also be used for students as they develop their writing and speaking skills to use higher level vocabulary and switch up the same old words that they repeat often. Happy writing!

What is true Listening?

What is true Listening?

Just using the hearing senses is not true listening, we need to see how our inner cells respond to the sensory input, which is true listening

First lesson with a new class is the most important lesson you will ever give. Complete lesson.

First lesson with a new class is the most important lesson you will ever give. Complete lesson.

High quality lesson by Barclayfox for the first time you ever meet a class - complete lesson, ready to deliver. The most important lesson you will ever give each new class. Complete lesson, ready to use, you only need to spend a few minutes creating a 'who am I' slide (a template for this slide is included inside the lesson powerpoint). Key Stages: KS3 and KS4 and KS5. (You could even use it with KS2). ALL subjects: You can use it with your tutor group too ! Use this lesson to : Reduce the stress and pressure. Improve your experience of the first ever lesson with a class. Improve your learners experience of their first ever lesson with you. The first lesson with a new class is the most important lesson you will ever teach. This is a truly critical lesson. It has been used and improved a huge number of times over many years. During the lesson you will: * Sort out the seating plan. * Learn names. * Introduce yourself to the students. * Start to discover which students will (e.g. follow instructions, write, spell correctly) and which are reticent/less skilled. * Set and agree class rules. * Rewards - find out which rewards the learners care enough about to try and get. * Set expectations of behaviour and ensure students recognise your authority as the teacher. * Help learners understand why work ethic is so important. * Learn about individual learners needs. * Learn about their individual likes (important in building relationships) * Learn about their individual dislikes (important in building relationships) * Start to build those relationships. * Start to coach / motivate the students about learning. This is an excellent lesson - I use it repeatedly with every new class from KS3 to KS5. Whether you are a new teach or a very experienced one this is a small investment for a great lesson to improve your experience and outcomes when you meet a class for the very first time.

AFL Tracking Spreadsheet

AFL Tracking Spreadsheet

A very helpful excel spreadsheet formatted to visualize student's progress. As a teaching aid it is an excellent way to evidence progress within a class no matter the subject or key stage. As scores are entered the cells will automatically format into a RAG system, with black representing those students who are excelling at a given topic. Can be used with any quantitative AFL, be it formative or summative.
