Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

I drew this colouring page of Autumn leaves I found at Rydal Water in the Lake District for my students to colour in as part of our module on seasons, habitats, life cycle, and tourism in the Lake District. An augmented reality version of this page is available in the published book on Amazon. This will allow students to colour in the picture and then see it on their smartphone or tablet computer, along with further details from the National Curriculum. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).

Clouds and Weather

A collection of photos of clouds. I have used these with my class when learning about how clouds form, the water cycle, and how to recognise different types of cloud. What clothes should we pack for these kinds of clouds? Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).

Winter Literature & Composition

Winter Literature & Composition

Here are six pieces of writing about Winter, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Topics include: a narrow escape on an icy bridge, skating alone on a winter’s night, descriptive poetry in four-beat verse, the drama of inadequate winter clothing, a place in the mountains where it is always winter, and a ridiculous winter ‘tall’ tale. Writing assignments vary – from summarizing events in the third person, to writing a poem in four-beat verse, to describing a winter rescue, to writing a deliberately absurd story involving melting snow. An image of a photograph entitled Ice One is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook. Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read and study different types of literature in small quantities. For example, instead of an entire novel or scholarly work, a small sample of each (which can stand on its own) will be presented. This way, the intermediate student has an opportunity to stretch their reading abilities without being discouraged. Each book contains six different writing samples that share a common theme. The writing assignments vary in length and are intended to inspire the student to try writing in different forms and styles.

Autumn Leaves Mosaics Templates & Instructions

Autumn Leaves Mosaics Templates & Instructions

Make your empty Kleenex boxes into a pretty craft! Instructions, tips, four small templates and four large templates are included here. This is a fun way to re-use thin coloured cardboard from common household packaging! Larger cardboard mosaics can be completed by younger children, and smaller ones by older children, teens or adults. Use your completed mosaic to decorate the cover of a notebook, make a card, as a wall hanging, or give it as a gift! Cardboard Mosaics and other similar crafts (such as cut and paste puzzles) are excellent tools for developing fine motor skills. This in turn can improve a student’s performance in other areas such as playing a musical instrument, writing neatly, attention to detail, patience, and the ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. Go slowly and be generous with your praise – fine work takes practise and perseverance!

Living With Less Water: Lesson Plan & Film

Living With Less Water: Lesson Plan & Film

Students watch the short film, "When a Town Runs Dry" by Joris Debeij, which examines the impact of the California drought on residents of Stratford, a small, Central Valley farming town. The Central Valley of California is the country’s most productive agricultural region and has been hard hit by the drought that has affected the western U.S. for the last 15 years. In this lesson, students explore environmental changes in their neighborhoods and towns and discuss the reverberating impacts of drought on human and natural resources. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story. English and Spanish versions of the lesson plan are available for download.

Winter: A Reading Comprehension Collection

Winter: A Reading Comprehension Collection

This collection contains 27 stories and poems on the theme of ‘Winter’ (including one or two selections suitable for Christmas and New Year), and a handful of ‘Winter’ colouring pages from Medieval woodcuts. Following each selection is a Topic of Discussion: a question which requires the student to think about one element of the text they just read, to form an opinion about it, and to express and defend that opinion. Younger students will benefit from the effort spent reading (either in their head or out loud) and then speaking with a parent/teacher or in a classroom setting about the Topic of Discussion, in a free style. Older students can benefit from using the Topic of Discussion as a starting point for a written assignment. I recommend that the older student state clearly what their point of view is, and defend it in one or two paragraphs. This will be good practise in defending an argument, a skill which becomes useful for essay-writing assignments in upper grades. The exercise of writing clearly and stating a coherent defense will prove a worthy challenge, even for pieces of writing which have simpler themes. Note: These selections are suitable for students in elementary or middle school, but are not presented in any specific order. Different texts may be better suited to older or younger students: a parent or teacher should always preview each individual piece of writing to make sure it is appropriate for a specific age group.
