Kaffenate Math BRAIN BUSTER--Back to School Edition

Kaffenate Math BRAIN BUSTER--Back to School Edition

Welcome to BRAIN BUSTERS! My students often ask, “Can we do Brain Busters today!?!?” Brain Busters are puzzle packets designed to keep the kids thinking and working those critical thinking muscles…but in a FUN way! Brain Busters are great to keep in the classroom as productive time fillers. If students finish their classwork early, this gives them a fun project to go to instead of talking or becoming disruptive. (I do not allow my students to take their packets home. They just keep them in school and work on them as they can.) BACK TO SCHOOL EDITION: Subject Scramble Sudoku Magic Squares Word Search Crossword* *I love this crossword, because it teaches kids fun facts about schools around the world! DISCLAIMER: I actually call them “Brain Busters Candy Crushers” in my class. Each time a student finishes a packet, he/she gets a small piece of candy. You could also have a prize box of some kind. Who doesn’t love prizes!? *ALL Kaffenate Brain Busters have been student-tested (no children were hurt in the testing of these products) to insure clarity and accuracy. **We are all humans, and despite several levels of quality control, mistakes STILL get though sometimes! Please contact me ASAP if you find a mistake. I’ll fix it immediately and send you a free product of your choice! ***Follow me on FB for math trivia, jokes, and other resources.

Reward Survey

Reward Survey

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -A 2 page reinforcement survey (in PDF format) -A scoring key for teachers including directions for interpreting answers (also in PDF format) ►How to Use◄ Have you noticed that some of your students do not respond to even the coolest, most unique classroom rewards? That’s because what’s reinforcing to some children may not always be reinforcing to others. This is what makes every child unique, and also why a reinforcement survey comes in handy. A reinforcement survey can provide valuable insight regarding what type of rewards and incentives your students prefer by allowing each child to give you direct feedback from their own perspective. These surveys are simple to administer and interpret, but the data it provides is invaluable. Ultimately, a reinforcement survey serves the purpose of assisting you when you need to know what motivates a student, what kind of rewards they prefer, and what they will be likely to work for! This reinforcement survey can be used with your entire class at the beginning of the year in order to get to know your students,’ as well as for the creation of a classwide incentive system. Reinforcement surveys can also be used with specific students who may be exhibiting problem behaviors to determine what a student wants to earn in order to increase appropriate classroom behaviors or develop a behavior plan. Simply have students complete the survey and then interpret their answers using the scoring key provided in this download. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. Differentiation is essential naturally with all sessions geared towards alternative learning for this criterion of young people. This project has been particularly successful when embedded with gardening sessions, ICT sessions as well as social skills building sessions. The idea behind this session plan is to encourage young people to explore and role play (optional) in an adventure just like Ash Ketchum the main character in the popular Pokemon series. Exploring the nearby nature find bugs and catch them with the intention of observing them and making key comparisons against Pokemon. Worksheets involve making posters and creating your own Pokedex to record your findings. Additonal challenges encourage young people to go above and beyond to achieve extra rewards. The beauty is not all young people have to enjoy Pokemon to engage in this session, being interested in bugs, mini beasts and insects in general is also perfect! This session will embed being outdoors, writing opportunities, computer skills development, research skills as well as social interaction.

The World News Crossword - March 25th, 2018

The World News Crossword - March 25th, 2018

The World News Crossword - March 25th, 2018 is a simple pdf document that can be downloaded in minutes, saved to a flash drive, ready to be used ‘in a flash!’ There are 4 crosswords in this resource. The main crossword is made from events in last week’s news. Facebook’s value fell by $58 million. No wait, $58 BILLION. Why? India put 11 vigilantes away from life. Why? Australia’s cricket captain cheated. Why? The US probably began a trade war with China. Israel admitted attacking a Syrian nuclear reactor as a warning to Iran. Turkey and the US both sent oil exploration ships to Cyprus. The puzzle is a simple way for students to learn about what happened in the world last week, but it’s even more valuable when it prompts them to discuss why these events occurred. There are 3 more puzzles. One is about France, another is about Austria and the third is all about Egypt. Crosswords are an excellent tool for supporting research skills, logical thinking and problem solving, and of course students have to write neatly. Solutions for all the puzzles are included.

Core PE - Tennis - 3 Ability Levels Pack - 16 x Lesson Plans

Core PE - Tennis - 3 Ability Levels Pack - 16 x Lesson Plans

A complete set of 16 tennis lessons, including introductory, intermediate and advanced levels. Adapted from the concept of ‘Mini Tennis’, which uses the formats of Mini Red, Mini Orange and / or Mini Green. Lessons are planned to be done on tennis courts. However, they can easily be adapted for indoors too, played on badminton courts with small rackets and sponge balls (great to use when introducing types of ball spin). The pack includes: Complete set of 16 lessons (6 at introductory level; 5 at intermediate level; 5 at advanced level) Warm-up ideas (for each level) Teaching points Q & A examples Game Ideas (for each level) Simple & Printable Layout As PE teachers, most of us would agree that tennis is a great sport to teach but often a difficult one for pupils to grasp… it’s not an easy sport to master, particularly on outdoor courts! The original idea was to adapt the concept of Mini Tennis to suit our pupils in their tennis lessons… and its definitely helped! This tailored approach enables pupils to develop vital skills and techniques based on their ability levels (rather than their age).
