Classroom Rules - Colour In {Editable}

Classroom Rules - Colour In {Editable}

Remind your students of classroom rules in a fun and engaging way! Not only will you be creating an inviting learning environment, but you will be helping them process and understand the rules using visual and kinesthetic learning styles. These ‘colour in’ classroom rules are a mix of inspirational and practical – creating a positive learning environment, alongside rules to ensure the smooth-running of your classroom. Use them on display boards, doors or uninviting areas of your classroom, for example, a brick wall area. Once coloured by students, they will create a stunning visual display! I would recommend markers to ensure the colour really pops! There are 30 rules in total. An editable file is included to allow you to add whatever rules best suit your specific needs or age group. Invite students to collaborate, so they feel involved in the process. CONTENT • Cover • Classroom Rules x 30 • Editable File • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 23

Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

I am a secondary teaching assistant and have recently been given a group of EAL students to work with. I have tried quite a few things so far with them, and have found philosophy to be something they particularly enjoy. As we are together for just one hour per week, I find this a useful way for them to engage with each other. Hope you you can make use of them.

Pancake Day: Shrove Tuesday

Pancake Day: Shrove Tuesday

This fun and engaging teaching resource is perfect for Pancake Day! An eye-catching presentation answers a series of questions, such as what Pancake Tuesday is and why we make pancakes on that day. The presentation continues with a pancake recipe, a closer look at pancake toppings, Pancake Day around the world (which could be researched further) and the tradition of pancake racing. The presentation has been saved as a show, so that nothing can be accidentally deleted. Some sections require clicking to progress the show - it is set this way so that the teacher can pause and discuss if required. A quick run through beforehand will highlight these areas. After the presentation and discussion, students can complete two literacy activities. A differentiated sequencing activity and an expository writing activity. A set of sequenced recipe cards has been included as a teaching tool. A bank of transition words has been included in the writing activity. ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover • Teacher Notes • Pancake Day Presentation (17 slides) • Set of sequenced recipe cards • Sequencing Activity: How to Make Pancakes • Instructional (how to) writing activity • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 37 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Literacy

Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

We performed this short (15-20 minute) play to parents and the whole school as a 'celebration assembly' to show our learning about WW1. There are parts for a whole class of varying lengths. The powerpoint was shown while parents were coming in and during the performance. The pupils wrote speeches in role as conscientious objectors, some of which were incorporated into the play, (one could substitute your own pupils' speeches.) The play also raises many SMSC /philosophical questions using the WW1 context.

IB PYP Bulletin Board Signs for IB Attitudes

IB PYP Bulletin Board Signs for IB Attitudes

These cute and colourful signs for the IB PYP bulletin board are great to use as a way to introduce the brand new unit of inquiry or to use as labels for displaying the children’s work on the walls. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to think critically and apply their knowledge of the language of the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme, when the students are involved in the layout and creation of your class bulletin board and inquiry wall. The signs are designed as arrows for pointing to the specific sections of each inquiry and highlighting the theme, IB attitudes, lines of inquiry and the central idea being covered within each unit of inquiry. Great for the end of the unit too, when the children use the signs to help them with their reflection process for their portfolios and for those kiddos embarking upon the IB exhibition. Spelling caters for UK and USA. Simply copy, laminate and cut. This complete kit includes signs for: Theme Central Idea Lines of Inquiry Our inquiries IB Attitudes ( large and small) You can find many more inquiry based learning tools and ideas in my store and on my blog, including a complete bulletin boar kit with ALL of the IB PYP tools: key concepts, Learner Profile, IB Attitudes and the Skills.
