Powerpoint to explain to parents why play is important in the Early Years and how it develops different skills. After each slide I added lots of photos of the children sometimes putting 3 or 4 photos on a slide to illustrate a point. I have taken them off this PP for obvious reasons.
Sometimes I use the PP for my talk at other times I have done my chat and put the PP on a loop so that it goes round continually and parents look at it while they go around the classroom.
This is the Powerpoint I use at the meeting for new parents coming to Reception. I add lots of photos of the current Reception class displaying things on each slide to make it more interesting and to give practical examples of their learning. Hope it's useful!
This bundle for younger children offers a range of activities and supporting resources. A visual counting game, time telling fun, maths puzzles, visual inspiration through times table posters and photographs of numbers in the wider environment. Bright, fun, friendly maths.
For those of you who love tracking, documenting, and keeping files, this weekly behavior management tracking system is for you! This system has been made for the Green, Yellow and Red systems that are already in place in your classroom, but can be adjusted easily to any other 3-Tier systems by editing the category labels (its a Word file). This system is meant to complement your existing system, but offer a way of tracking and documenting.
At the end of each day, I would have a student go down the list and put colored checks for each student, so by the end of the week I had a full week's worth of data on behavior with specific codes annotated next to each day when points were taken away. This made referencing and phone calls home easy and data based.
PLEASE let me know if you have any questions as to who this works or how to use it in your classroom!
Check out this simple planner that students can use to track their assignments throughout the week! Students will list their various assignments and there is a convenient box beside each component that they can check off as they finish. This will allow student to see the big picture and both plan ahead as well as catch up if needed.
This will also help teachers to assign work ahead of time for students who like to get ahead or for students who will be absent. There is also an added section for "Other To Do" items.
The tracker is listed side by side and has two identical documents so you get four full weeks of assignments on each one each sheet of paper.
