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.

Teacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

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.
