FREE The Magic Train Yellow Thinking Hat Worksheets Make Looking On The Bright Side More Fun!

FREE The Magic Train Yellow Thinking Hat Worksheets Make Looking On The Bright Side More Fun! These worksheets were originally written for 'The Magic Train' (Published by Barefoot books). However some of them could easily be used for absolutely any other book. I am building up this collection of Thinking Hat Reading Questions as I want to encourage higher thinking skills in every primary school child but I could not find any instant thinking hat worksheets for books on the Internet. Please comment on these and tell me what other picture books you would like me to write about.

FREE The Magic Train Black Hat Thinking Activities - Problem Solving Has Never Been So Fun!

FREE The Magic Train Black Hat Thinking Activities - Problem Solving Has Never Been So Fun! Every day I am trying to add some more thinking hat resources I am making for my class to TES. It has been shown that Thinking Hat Questions promote higher thinking and reading skills in children and yet when it came to actually finding lots of these resources on this website, I could not find any and so I am planning to write worksheets each night and share them with everyone. I would love a review of my work and also any suggestions on what other children's books people would like me to add to this collection.

Stoneage / Time Travel / Belief in God by year 9 girls

In her encounter with the Stone Age Tribe, Rebecca takes part in a mammoth hunt and then, during the feast that follows, tells the Wise Elder about her world. He is impressed and shares the problems of his own tribe, asking if we have peace in our world. When Rebecca tells him about war and poverty he asks if there is no God in our world. In the second story, the author wonders if the 'Druid-Man she met might be able to help her answer her own questions. Great stories for encouraging reflection and debate on the big questions, with elements for primary and secondary age students.

Poems4 Crtive Imagn Wrdswth's Daffs + youtube vids

Links to 23 different youtube videos of Wordsworth's poem Daffodils. Then many other poems by Wordsworth. A few videos for his poem 'Rainbow.&' Other poems which stimulate creative imagination - including Tiger Tiger. A friend took his Early Years class out to sit among daffodils and listen to a reading of Wordsworth&';s poem. He prepared them well, but once he started to read Daffodils, one just said, 'Boring.&' I seek good ways to develop more Creative Imagination. I include the thread about this and will update + add poems / ideas which you suggest.
