The 5 Minute Lesson Plan by @TeacherToolkit

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan by @TeacherToolkit

*Updated January 2018* - with 1-hour webinar tutorial to guide new users. Designed to reduce planning time and focus on key learning phases within a lesson. (Will still require thinking!) Lesson planning is a habit of thought, not a form filling exercise. Remember, watchdogs no longer require a lesson plan for lessons, but evidence of ‘a planned lesson!’ So, why use the 5 Minute Lesson Plan? Useful for coaching and mentoring NQTs; or with established colleagues for paired observations; designed to help teachers consider the cognitive processes required in lesson planning. “Stickability” = What will stick in students minds as they leave your lesson? What key point do you want them to remember? Now translated into 14 languages and available for free on Teacher Toolkit website.

Features include: ★ Add evidence and select what standard it relates too ★ Upload files to support evidence ★ When you observe others you can relate this to standards ★ Log all your CPD/training and associate these with teaching standards ★ Produce reports on each teaching standard or all standards ★ Record lesson observations and select what standards you achieved The uploaded file is a .txt and needs to be changed/renamed to a .accdb. If you need help in changing this please contact me. Its a database to store all evidence in one place. It allows you to upload the evidence and select which sub-standard it meets. It is a bit techy and if you need any help then let me know. Saved me lots of paper.

Useful Teaching Resources: Interactive Whiteboard Organiser, EYFS Timetable, Primary Timetable+more

This is a really simple idea. It helps a teacher become more organised. It contains all the key features a teacher needs on their interactive whiteboards. These include the date, the daily timetable, the learning objective and notes for students. It is a perfect solution to the messy whiteboard! I bundled together some of my best classroom management tools into a single pack and hope other teachers find them as useful as I have over the years.
