Gratitude Journal - 52 prompts for a whole year

Gratitude Journal - 52 prompts for a whole year

Teaching Character Education? Showing gratitude has been proven to increase long-term well-being, improve health, relationships, emotions and help us bounce back from stressful experiences.With the significant increase in stress and anxiety among our young people, it is more important than ever that as teachers, we are catering to our students’ emotional needs in the classroom.This Gratitude Journal is the ideal way to help our students focus on the good aspects of their life and to appreciate their blessings – every one of us has something to be thankful for and this journal will be sure to highlight it! The journal contains 52 prompts, one for each week of the year. Each prompt is unique and encourages reflection on a wide range of life experiences, allowing for much more creativity and diversity in thinking and responses.It is not labelled by month or date so can be started at any time in the year – new starts don’t have to only begin on January 1st, and gratitude isn't just for Thanksgiving! You can let students take them home to complete as a private activity, or it can be done in school maybe at the start of the week as a Monday Morning Meeting.You will receive both a PRINTABLE and DIGITAL version to suit your needs! The digital one is ideal for opening up on Google Slides as it can be completed and looked at on any device, whenever and wherever! P.S. It’s also great for teachers too: we can all take time to have an attitude of gratitude!

These IB PYP reflection sheets are designed to try to help the children think more about the specifics of their learning and the units they participated in. It aims to help them reflect upon their success as well as their challenges and to really think about how they could help themselves. This packet is designed to assist children with those questions and the reflection process.You will find a collection of 12 reflection templates one of which is a flip flap book. Use them with:End of unit reflectionsPortfoliosGoal setting for any curricular areaReflection of Learner Profile, IB Attitudes and Skills used.Student Led ConferencesThese are designed for 3rd ,4th and 5th grades.

This EASY print and go packet contains 6 themed homework sheets with 9 trans-disciplinary activities in each theme, giving a total of 54 different inquiry based activities.

The activities focus on the Key Concepts, Learner Profile and the IB Attitudes, requiring the children to show their thinking and explain their solutions.

No Bullying in Our School Drama Circle and Activity IB PYP

No Bullying in Our School Drama Circle and Activity IB PYP

Drama circles! They bring out the risk taking, creativity in all kids and everyone has so much fun! These printable cards are just one of my drama circle activities that I use to practice the trans- disciplinary skills of cooperation, social and communication to name a few. One card begins the round and each child has to act out the instructions on their card, following on from the previous card. It is great for literacy centres activities as well as cooperative group work. This drama was designed for my 3rd graders as a fun review of the speaking and listening strands. Thus also compatible with the CCSS ELA. There are numbered cards to help keep the younger kids on track and there are cards without numbers which I have used with my 5th graders to add rigour to the activity. The theme is all about bullying and how best to deal with it and prevent it from happening and has a lot of reflection as well as humour included. This a great prerequisite to taking action too. Simply gather the children into a seated circle, shuffle the cards and distribute a card to each child. The start card leads the way and the children have to read their own instructions on their card and then listen and look for actions and words from the acting of each person so that they know when to take their turn. This is developing listening and observational skills as well as communication, presentation and thinking skills. Not every card requires speaking; some ask only for miming. The cards marked with a star are more wordy and better to use with higher level readers. I usually review the card with those kids who struggle with reading prior to the circle. There are 32 cards within this packet and an instruction card. The drama cards can be used with 3rd-6th grade and used within a whole class scenario or smaller groups, where the children are given several cards to read and act from. The concept of drama circles is a great ice breaker or a fun review of the IB skills and attitudes. You can find more ideas and inquiry based activities on my blog at www.pypteachingtools.comEnjoy! ~ Susan Powers

Second World War  (Photos, Worksheets, Colouring Pages)

Second World War (Photos, Worksheets, Colouring Pages)

A collection of photos and hand drawn colouring pages of the World War Two bunkers on the British Channel Island of Alderney, which was evacuated and became the base for four prisoner of war camps, and a large fortified wall. Photos are taken at Bibette Head and across the island, including the Anti Aircraft bunker known as 'The Odeon'. I made a video of the bunkers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsXKBVzIBWo), and run free virtual field trips of the bunkers for schools through Skype in the Classroom. You might also enjoy my bunker colouring pages here on the TES. The bundle would also be relevant for discussions about materials such as concrete and metal, sea water corrosion of metal, architecture and design, engineering, and the human impacts of the war. The local children were evacuated first, and Jewish labourers were brought to the camps. Today on the island you will find older generations and families where the labourers married the soldiers and the soldiers remained after the war to help clear up the 30,000 or more land mines. Why was the island part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall? Was there a strategy in place? How was the concrete brought to the island by ship? How did they use concrete to camouflage the bunkers to look like rocks? Why did the soldiers take wood from the houses to burn?
