SURVEY - PLAY - ENGAGE students, faculty, and parents

SURVEY - PLAY - ENGAGE students, faculty, and parents

Improve the climate in your classroom and building community by increasing everyone's voice without compromising on creativity and fun. These rocks are easy to make with the FREE companion resource YOU ROCK RECOGNITION. Download SURVEY - PLAY - ENGAGE and begin supplementing dry management plans with a dose of meaningful engagement that anyone can get excited about. Use the POLL ROCKS with students to kick off a lesson; POLL parents at a large event; use the SCRABBLE rocks with faculty to continue the conversation or measure the mood in your building. Don't forget to thank them with a YOU ROCK note to remind them their voice makes a difference.

Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

This unit of work introduces year 7 students to the concepts of computational thinking and logical thinking. It is split into three fully differentiated sections: 1. Design an interactive story using a flowchart to identify the key decision points within your story. 2. Create an interactive story using PowerPoint, hyperlinking the slides to the correct locations. 3. Test and evaluate your story and make improvements where required. I have included some slides to provide additional assistance, for example hyperlinking auto shapes, removing the on mouse click advancements, etc. Alongside developing computational thinking skills, this unit is also an opportunity for students to develop their graphic design skills. I have also included an example interactive story so students can get an idea of what they could create themselves, while considering what they could make even better themselves. This resource is a perfect continuation from my Introduction Computational Thinking for KS3 resource! ***Please Leave a Review***

Christmas computing team challenges for last lesson of term

Christmas computing team challenges for last lesson of term

This special end of term Christmas lesson is ideal for computing and ICT pupils from year 6 to year 11. It consists of a teacher’s PowerPoint presentation where the pupils work in 4 teams to complete team and whole class challenges. They will need to be familiar with writing formulas, AutoFill and filtering data in Excel and writing simple programs using Scratch2. There are a couple of “just for the fun of it” rounds, it is Christmas after all, and a logic game which will allow them to practise computational thinking. Includes: - An attractive teacher led PowerPoint slideshow including 5 challenges: - Team based “naughty and nice list” spreadsheet challenge - Team based “robot control” Scratch challenge - Team based “reindeer” computing thinking logic challenge - Whole class celebrity face mash-up challenge - Whole class sing-a-long It also includes a bonus “Christmas bitmap artwork” activity in case you have time at the end of the lesson This lesson makes their last lesson with you before they break up for Christmas fun and exciting whilst still being subject relevant to please SLT. In order to run the PowerPoint show you must enable the macros for the buttons in the challenges to work correctly as they use VBA code to ensure the answers are given correctly. It is recommended that you test the file loads and runs correctly on your school’s system before you rely on it in the lesson as some schools may have security measures set up to stop VBA macros from working. We hope you and your class enjoy this free Christmas lesson and we wish you all a very merry Christmas from Nichola Wilkin Ltd.

Montessori Classified Cards: The Morse Code

Montessori Classified Cards: The Morse Code

The Morse Code was a big part of the 20th century. With this free printable, children can re-awaken this historical communication system and indirectly prepare for further studies in computer sciences. Print this set twice to have a control.

Poster - Computational Thinking Vocabulary

Poster - Computational Thinking Vocabulary

Computational thinking is full of complicated words. This poster was created to help students pronounce the four elements of computational thinking (Decomposition, Pattern Recognition, Abstraction and Algorithmic Design) phonetically. I have included both PNG and JPEG versions. ***Please leave a review!***

Application of Computational Thinking - Coding Classic Games

Application of Computational Thinking - Coding Classic Games

My popular twitter poster is available for download here! This poster gives an example of how computational thinking can be used to convert classic games such as 'rock, paper, scissors' and 'noughts and crosses' into algorithms. Try out in your classroom! I have included JPEG and PNG versions of the poster. ***Please leave a review!***
