Year 4 Spelling Lists - Covering full Y4 curriculum

Year 4 Spelling Lists - Covering full Y4 curriculum

30 spelling lists for year 4. Well organised. Each spelling list covers a specific rule from the year 4 curriculum. Note, as the spelling curriculum for year 3 is merged with year 4, I have separated the spellings into two separate year groups. Each spelling has space for children to find out what the word means and then use the word in a sentence, so as they learn more about the word than just the spelling. Easy to use in class and can be used easily alongside spelling lessons/other resources for learning spellings. Also useful to help you identify spelling rules to teach. Sheets can be sent home to help children with learning their spellings. These have also been used for recap work in years 5/6. Children may need to recap the spelling work from year 3.

How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

Hello Busy Educator! How Social Media Can Help You in Your Teaching Job Hunt When it comes to job hunting, sometimes prospective teachers don’t use social media very well.

So, keep only those things on it that you would like to share with everyone. Teachers have to maintain a leading role so it’s best to keep your profile clean and professional. Here are some ways in which social media can help your job hunt. For more information, please visit www.TheBusyEducator.com

Lesson Plan Template - Visible Learning Inspired

Lesson Plan Template - Visible Learning Inspired

The Visible Learning lesson plan utilises John Hattie’s research to structure your lesson. Simple, effective, organised. The document is well formatted and structured. It explicitly states the goal(s), reasons for learning, and title of the lesson through the ‘We Are Learning To (WALT), This Is Because (TIB), and What I Am Looking For (WILF)’ headings. It fits neatly onto a one page document that can be filled out directly (without expanding the text boxes), or printed and written by hand. The Visual Learning Lesson Plan integrates assessment measures, or ‘Checks For Understanding’ (CFU), into its three activity slots. Some tips for formatively assessing your students are given at the base of the document. Considerations for student instruction are included in the far left column of each activity. The document includes ‘student focus’, ‘teacher focus’, and time frame columns in order to help teachers (especially beginners) organise, prepare and visualise their lessons. A ‘hook/do now’ section allows teachers to engage students and begin the lesson with discussions, activities, or videos in order to capture their attention. The Visible Learning Lesson Plan is designed for classes of roughly forty minutes to one hour, however the time frames can easily be adjusted by adding additional activity boxes. Simply copy and paste.

Bilingual Reflect & Restore Sheets (Eng.and Span.) for all grades

Bilingual Reflect & Restore Sheets (Eng.and Span.) for all grades

These simple reflection sheets can be used to respond to poor behavior in the classroom, especially as a piece of the process in schools practicing Restorative Justice. This product includes versions for Early Childhood, Primary, and Upper Grade students (all in English), along with corresponding versions of each in Spanish. On the left side of the sheet, the offending student reflects on their poor behavior, explains its effects on others, and has an opportunity to offer their perspective on the causes of the incident. On the right side, the student is prompted to write an apology which can contribute to the process of restoration with victim of their behavior. The Early Childhood version has spaces to draw responses instead of writing. The two sides can be cut apart, making it possible for the teacher to keep a record of the incident while the victim is able to keep their apology note.

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

A collection of 55 terms relating to Archaeology and the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age). Based closely on the content of our KS2 learning workshops, which specifically address the 2014 National Curriculum statutory unit “Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.” The Old Stone Age is the starting point against which other changes can be most successfully measured, as it was a lengthy pre-agricultural period of nomadic hunter-gatherers, spanning around 99.5% of our history. Supported by unique and original images including real and replica artefacts, each term has a carefully-researched definition added, based on our specialist knowledge of this period and our experience of teaching about it. Pairs of terms are presented in A4 landscape format ready for printing, and laminating if required. This resource is guaranteed FREE of second-hand clip art cartoons featuring stereotypical images of club waving cavemen in fur nappies, and aims to knock the somewhat unhelpful Flintstones image squarely on the head. Can be used for display, reference, or matching exercises, by children in the classroom or for in-school staff INSET. Available for download in .pdf format. For non-commercial educational use and display only. All material (apart from the Aurochs image) is copyright 10,000 Years BC and is not licenced for amendment or redistribution without prior permission.

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset Enrichment presentation This presentation has 56 slides and contains 14 videos, which are all embedded (EXCEPT THE VIDEO THAT EMBEDS ON SLIDE 55 AS IT MADE THE FILE TOO LARGE, EVEN AFTER COMPRESSING, SO THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN INCLUDED AS A SEPARATE FILE FOR YOU TO RE-EMBED) into the presentation and play full-screen automatically. AIMS Understand what a growth mindset is Understand the plasticity of the brain Encourage students to take ownership of their learning Develop R & I (Resourcefulness and Initiative) Understand and develop grit Push yourself beyond comfort zone to take on new challenges Learn to not fear mistakes, learn from them (Growth Mindset) This power point is suitable for delivery as part of a whole school CPD, department CPD, or, as part of enrichment week, delivered to a whole year group. The presentation lasts between 1 ½ -2 hours, depending on how familiar you are with the Growth Mindset and how much you elaborate on each slide. The presentation contains a section where the students are asked to draw a self-portrait using their current technique, then again under the expert tuition of a YouTube artist, so they can see the instant impact better techniques have. You can see me going over the PowerPoint on my YouTube channel “gcsephysicsexplained”: [Link][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMapEUiWYrs&t=24s&list=PLjs3KMU7zKeh6TQlEA7csA9knbtiCCAcH&index=3] I follow up the presentation by giving a questionnaire to the students (attached as a download). The presentation gets great feedback, mostly saying how inspired the students feel to take responsibility for their own learning, and how they wish someone had told them about the growth mindset and the plasticity of the brain earlier. Kind regards Matthew Obee
