The challenge eggs are great for your early finishers or simply to motivate your students to work harder in class. I created them for language lessons but my slides are editable and could easily be adapted to any other subject.
When students finish their activity early or if they do something exceptional in class, they are allowed to pick a challenge egg and a fun and challenging activity is awaiting them! My students love them so I thought I would share the idea with you.
In this resource:
- All the egg fillers with plenty of activities
- An editable slide for you to write your own activities
- All the links to extra resources you need to buy, such as the eggs and the egg basket but also other G&T ideas
Plenty of ideas are written under each slide!! Do not forget to read them :-)
FREE resource ->>>> Thinking clouds
Showing progress - Assess learning - Use as a plenary - Target setting
A poster for the classroom with a booklet for students to keep in their folders.
Have a box in the classroom under your poster with plenty of thinking clouds or give a booklet to each student at the start of the year so they keep it in their folder.
I normally put an instruction on my power-point after an activity or at the end of a lesson and pupils know that they need to get a thinking cloud which is very fun for them. You can have different kind of instructions on the board such as:
- What have you learnt in the lesson
- Set yourself a target for next lesson
- How well did you do in that test
- What do you need to focus on
- Write down five new words you learnt today, how are you going to memorize them?
(check the sample slides I added to the resources, you can copy and paste it in your own power-point - easily editable).
Students then fill in their cloud and stick it after the activity, test or end of unit.
When you then check their books, you can observe the progress they have made throughout the term or year by reading the clouds.
There is a French version of each resources.
I hope you will enjoy my resources and if you have a question on a particular activity or slide, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a message. I would really appreciate some feedback :-) Thank you very much.
