Supply teacher daily checklist, class feedback form and some useful websites

Supply teacher daily checklist, class feedback form and some useful websites

This is a three page document drawn up from my own needs. I've tried to price it fairly - it should be something you can adapt. It should save you some time and maybe even some stress. The first page is a simple but thorough checklist to ensure I have all the information I need for a successful day (I've left off the lesson content, which I tackle anyway). I've not currently added any icons but that's the way I wanted it, really straightforward. It's a standard checklist. The second page has some useful websites and last minute ideas for activities (mainly primary but could easily be adapted). The the third page is a feedback form to leave for the class teacher. You might find you want to move the sizing around or change some of the categories. Maybe you want to reduce it onto A5 instead of A4? There 's also a checklist for use when leaving the house at the beginning of the day and the classroom at the end, so you don't end up losing your favourite hat/water bottle/etc... I have this laminated on the back of my DBS folder, and on the back of my phone, which you might want to consider too - you can always reduce the typeface? They are in .docx format so can be manipulated and amended to help you. Good luck and happy supplying. Hope they help! Please email with feedback or leave me some lovely stars...

Resource for Authors. How to be a Successful Resource Author.

Resource for Authors. How to be a Successful Resource Author.

I have been producing educational resources for just under 3 years. Last year my Art resources were the most downloaded globally and sales are continuing to rise. I have developed a twitter following of over 12,600 (@maelhmatthews) which is helping to promote resources further. This document might help you develop your own brand. Clear, unambiguous advice based on my own experiences. Themes covered in the resource include; the use of social media to promote your resources pricing communicating with buyers time management keeping the right side of copyright and other laws choosing the right topics developing a brand identity Choosing the right "look" for your resources. Managing feedback comments..... and much more. There is no one answer to finding success and I am not suggesting that I have all the answers, but this document outlines a philosophy which is working for me and it might help you develop your own way forward. Good luck!

Tracking Mathematics Learning Through Play

Tracking Mathematics Learning Through Play

Early students mathematical learning is best learned through "play". The problem solving strategy of young students. Keeping a track of individual learning can be problematic so here is an effective but simple way of tracking learning using a broad wall to signify both the hierarchical and multiple pathways of development of learning.
