Communication Comfort Cards

Communication Comfort Cards

This is a set of three colour-based communication cards that are a wonderful aid for the able and disabled alike.

They are an easy and effective way for people to let staff members, classmates, friends or almost anyone know how they feel about communicating at that point in time.Each card is 3 x 4 and fit easily inside a name badge holder. Alternatively, you can laminate them and use a hole punch before threading them onto a lanyard.This set includes both a UK and US friendly versions; along with a set for those that are familiar with this system and also one for those that are new to it.I hope this simple aid can help your students, family or friends to communicate more effectively!

iWill Game Kit! Games to strengthen self-control

Willpower! We all have it, some more than others. The good news is that the mind and brain sciences show that you can strengthen willpower or “self- control.” This manual, that I have developed and used with great effect in dozens of classrooms, shows how, using fun and engaging games.iWill’s game kit is a brain training work-out for your students. Here you will find games that your students can play on their own or in teams. All of the games are simple and appropriate for a wide range of students, K-12. Each game is described, along with the relevant resources, and methods of keeping score (assessing!). I also provide a list of references for those interested in the scientific evidence behind these games.Make iWill part of your program’s curriculum. As willpower grows, so too will student learning and decision-making, in and out of school.

KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

The download comprises 20 X PSHE lessons/sessions that can be used multiple times with the same group. The method uses a selection of debate and discussion activities to explore PSHE issues for KS1 and KS2 students. This download is designed to be a significant component of any primary school's PSHE provision. A demo of the method can be found here: https://goo.gl/DrcSqv [though the content is not relevant to PSHE, it shows how the approach works] The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues. The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats]. The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes. The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity. The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227 A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86 This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]
