Saint Dwynwen / St Dwynwen's Day

Saint Dwynwen / St Dwynwen's Day

Celebrate St Dwynwen’s Day on 25 January with these 2 fun and flexible no prep puzzles about Saint Dwynwen / Santes Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of love and lovers. This pack includes a True or False Hidden Word Puzzle and a Crossword Puzzle, plus solutions. These activities work well as follow up work to an assembly, as part of a stand-alone lesson or as part of a longer topic. They could be used as starter tasks (if building on previous learning), as individual or group tasks to focus pupils’ own research, an informal assessment task at the end of a topic or mini-focus, early finisher tasks or engaging homework tasks. These would best suit Upper Key Stage 2 / KS2, early KS3 and other equivalents. The Hidden Word Puzzle includes 15 statements about St Dwynwen and St Dwynwen’s Day, which is the equivalent of St Valentine’s Day in Wales. Pupils must work out which ones are incorrect and then, using the grid at the bottom, rearrange the letters linked to the incorrect statements to find a word related to the subject of the puzzle. This is a very flexible resource, which works especially well to focus pupils’ own online research. All statements can be checked by looking through the first few websites that come up in internet searches. Children will practise reading comprehension skills and skimming and scanning strategies. They will also practise their digital literacy skills as they check facts, evaluating the reliability of websites used, ensuring they check more than one website etc. The solution to the puzzle, identifying and correcting the relevant statements, is included on a separate page. As versions of Dwynwen’s story can vary, the puzzles focus on details agreed on by several key websites. The crossword could be used with the same pupils as although there is some overlap between the two puzzles in the information covered, there are also details in each which do not appear in the other. No preparation is required, other than simply printing and copying. Two previews are provided, with a 4-page PDF document - containing the puzzles and their solutions - in the zip file. I hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Thank you for your interest in my resources. Please visit FullShelf Resources for engaging, time-saving printables, activities and presentations to plan Primary (and some Secondary) Literacy / English, Maths / Numeracy and French lessons. I also have a growing collection of puzzles for special events, anniversaries and Social Studies.

STEAM Thinking - Analyzing Bridges

STEAM Thinking - Analyzing Bridges

Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room. "You're begging me for a brand new start, Trying to mend a bridge that's been blown apart, But you know you never built it dad." (Bridge by Queensryche) As with any teacher, I’m always looking to create new and innovative ways to reach my students, grasp their attention and motivate them in new and meaningful ways. One manner in which I have had great success in reaching my teenagers of the digital age are my video game and writing creations. My newest creation combines a multitude of thinking and writing activities, inspired by the wonderful video game Bridge Constructor, created by the phenomenal game developer, Headup Games. This guide allows the students to think on high levels, as they will need to analyze mistakes made in my bridge designs, while proposing their own structural idea. The students will also review concepts relative to basic components of a bridge, along with Newton’s Laws of Motion. If one chooses to take this constructive journey, they may find it helpful to follow how I use this with my classes. Review Newton’s Laws of Motion. Give the students a printout of the basic bridge parts and forces/loads. Once you’ve given/reviewed the above basics, you can following the format below: Watch my poor bridge design video Complete the “Defining the Problem” page Complete the Visualize/Create page Watch my second bridge design video and complete the Evaluation page Complete the Analyze/Refine writing prompt Complete the Newton’s Laws page (the first bridge has been started done for you) Complete the bridge parts labels page ***Continue this process through each of the 8 bridges → Included in the Guide 3 Terms of Use 4 Core Standards 5 About the Guide 6 Recommendations for Teaching 7 Newton’s Laws of Motion 8 - 9 Bridge Basics 10 Bridge Components 11 - 17 Bridge 1 - West to East 18 - 24 Bridge 2 - The Valley 25 - 31 Bridge 3 - Really Big Valley 32 - 38 Bridge 4 - Over Troubled Water 39 - 45 Bridge 5 - Canyon Run 46 - 52 Bridge 6 - City to City 53 - 59 Bridge 7 - Insanity Ridge 60 - 66 Bridge 8 - Without a Paddle 67 - 76 Differentiation Writing Prompt - Bridge 77 References

Adrift with Ruby: Learning Ruby Coding Basics in Space

Adrift with Ruby: Learning Ruby Coding Basics in Space

Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room. "Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare "This is Major Tom to Ground Control I'm stepping through the door And I'm floating in a most peculiar way." -Space Oddity by David Bowie One may find it odd that I teach small coding lessons in my Language Arts classes. However, I look at these activities, in the same manner I do with any form of writing or communication. When I teach my students to write, I don't do it, because I expect them to all become published authors. I teach them to write, because it's an integral form of communication. I look at coding in the same manner. The children today really should have some experience with coding. It's a form of communication that is more prevalent in society each and every day. Therefore, Wake Up Sunshine, is proud to bring you Adrift with Ruby: Learning Ruby Coding Basics in Space! With this simple and affordable guide, the students will be presented the very basics of Ruby coding language. The students will then watch various video clips of my play through of the phenomenal video game, Adrift, by 505 Games. Overall, I do one activity as a mini-lesson each day throughout the guide. I follow the provided routine below when working with the guide: Introduce the basics of Ruby Language. Complete one activity per day. -Data Types: (pp. 7 - 9) -Variables (Numbers): (pp. 10 - 12) -Math: (pp. 13 - 16) -Puts Command: (pp. 17 - 19) -Prints Command: (pp. 20 - 22) -‘.length’ Method: (pp. 23 - 25) -‘.reverse’ Method: (pp. 26 - 28) Spot Check Assessment 1 Part 1 Assessment -if statement: (pp. 33 - 35) -else statement: (pp. 36 - 38) -elsif statement (pp. 39 - 41) -Relational Operator: (pp. 42 - 44) -Less Than/Greater Than: (pp. 45 - 47) -Boolean Operator (and): (pp. 48 - 50) -Boolean Operator (or): (pp. 51 - 53) -Boolean Operator (not): (pp. 54 - 56) -Combining Boolean Operators: (pp. 57 - 59) Spot Check Assessment 2 Part 2 Assessment Final Assessment Note: I suggest that the teacher completes some of these activities as a practice run through, before implementing in class. This is not a simple copy/handout and expecting the students to know it all. As noted by Benjamin Franklin, "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." By practicing a little, the educator will feel much more prepared to let their students give these activities a try.
