Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

PowerPoint presentation which details a simple instruction writing model - 'How to Clean Your Teeth' with a clear and concise layout.Each slide is colourful and engaging and allows a teacher to explain the instruction genre.Also included are sequencing, cut and stick flashcards. Children may assemble the instructions as a paired activity cutting and pasting sequentially onto sugar paper. This task is ideal for reinforcement and will support less secure learners in an active way.This can be used and easily adapted for other simple instruction models- e.g. How to make a sandwich These resources promote an active approach to writing instructions. They complement other resources within my shop - 'Writing Instructions- Introducing the Genre in an Active Manner' and Writing Instructions - 'How to Build a Snowman' which has additional literacy tasks included.I have included several slides within the preview to allow teachers to peruse the resource more comprehensively. Hope your earners enjoy the lesson and tasks.Many thanks for free use clip art provided by http://www.clipartlord.com

Moral & Spiritual Development - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Spirituality Morality SMSC

Moral & Spiritual Development - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Spirituality Morality SMSC

The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'Moral & Spiritual Development'. It is one of a series of Philosophy Boxes sessions designed, by request, for KS1-2 PSHE leaders (though it is also useful for KS3). You can save money by downloading the entire course of 20 sessions: which would constitute a significant part to your school's KS1/2 PSHE provision.The download comprises a P4C lesson/session that can be used multiple times with the same group.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-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.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]
