Addie the Alien - First Aid - Lesson Plans

Addie the Alien - First Aid - Lesson Plans

The lessons in the Addie First Aid Awareness series can be taught as a unit of work over a period of six to eight lessons starting with the first section: ‘How 2 Understand Safety Awareness’ (Lessons 1 & 2); progressing to How 2 Saves Lives (Lessons 1, 2 & 3) and finishing with How 2 Take Emergency Action (Lessons 1 & 2). Schools looking for progression through the primary education years, these are the recommendations How 2 Understand Safety Awareness 6-7 year olds How 2 Saves Lives 8-9 year olds How 2 Take Emergency Action 10-11 year olds Note: the lesson plans are designed for any age from 6-11 years old. In the first part of this book “How 2 Understand Safety Awareness”, children learn simple terminology related to safety and engage in a fun activity that help them conceptualize this. Their friend “Addie” is there to help them. Next, they learn simple steps that they can take to “save lives”. Here, the aim is once again to make them aware of what to do when someone is having a medical condition. Once, all activities of this book are completed, we hope that one day, one child will truly be a HERO! Dr. Khaled Al Awam, Ph. D., MPH Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Specialist Safety is everyone’s responsibility and being able to recognise a safe environment in and around children is the first step. Kids have an incredible curiosity and in their quest to discover new things, they may injure themselves or others around them. In this book, kids learn, in an interactive process, how to be aware of their surroundings, what possible items that may expose them to danger are and what do when they are or someone else is injured. Furthermore, the activities in this book enable the children to critically think and consider their role in helping others, to the best of their abilities, when someone else is in a dangerous situation. The safety of our children should be our primary concern. Allowing them to have an awareness of hazards, dangers and risks is the beginning of that journey. Addie the alien empowers children in an emotionally intelligent way to embrace thinking about safety as a habit. It is these vital habit forming concepts that are vital in maintaining their safety and that of others. Research shows that children are more prone to serious accidents that can sometimes be life threatening when they are either without adult supervision or in the presence of other children. The Addie the Alien awareness course gives the opportunity to help save lives

Wonder by R. J. Palacio Novel Study Review

Wonder by R. J. Palacio Novel Study Review

This fun and engaging review game is the perfect way to review your Wonder novel study. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Wonder Jeopardy game came be used multiple times with the one class. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy

Learning Powers - The 6 Rs

Learning Powers - The 6 Rs

The use of visual aids can be quite powerful and educational psychologists are universally agreed to their benefits in the classroom. The following visual aids can be reproduced and printed throughout the school environment when purchased with a school licence. As educators, we need to focus on the process and not praise for the sake of gaining results. If one truly wants to cultivate a growth-mindset in schools, then one has to look at ‘The How’ and not the results. You can allow yourself an introductory workshop to ask the children what are their opinions of the 6 R Learning Powers and how can they be used in a variety of classroom settings. The children through positive reinforcement will soon be looking for ways to incorporate the learning powers in their daily activities. Class Dojo is a wonderful free App that supports positive reinforcement and the 6 R’s can be taken and placed into the customisable system. This will then support the use of the 6 R Learning Powers being utilised in the home environment and thus completing the educational communication triangle of teacher, student and parent. The book has further resources in more visual aids recognising the 6 R Learning Powers; what 'GREAT STUDENTS' do. Quizzes, wordsearch and spot the difference complete the book.
