Time for fun and games

When their minds shut down, teachers welcome lists of things to do. Bright Ideas for Managing the Positive Classroom is full of them.

It's a compendium of activities for getting to know a new class, for the first 10 minutes of the day and for wet playtimes. There are also many suggestions for attracting and keeping children's attention, forming co-operative groups and devising shared rules and appropriate rewards. Some are old favourites; others are party games adapted for school use. Few require anything more complicated than a pile of newspapers or some orange pips.
