3 x Dreams Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Aspirations Brain

3 x Dreams Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Aspirations Brain

3 x Wordsearch Puzzle sheets of keywords on the theme of ‘Dreams’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Be nice - assembly

Be nice - assembly

“Be nice” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To remind students to “Work hard. Be nice”. (My favourite saying) A previous assembly (“Growth mindset”-which I will also post on TES shortly) focused on the “Work hard” part so you improve your intelligence and talents. This assembly focuses on the “Be nice” part so that we may enjoy stronger friendships and other healthy relationships. This assembly is based on 3 stories. There are morals to each story that can be explored to encourage students to: be nice to others, treat others how you want to be treat, take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world, and don’t let others decide how you will act or feel. (This is a concept used in my Life coaching called TFAR – Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Results, and is explained to an appropriate depth in the notes within the PowerPoint on slide 6.) The assembly has 9 slides and no video clips, so no need to worry about your school internet letting you down! It will last 10-15minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The three stories to tell are wrote as a script in the notes at the bottom of the relevant slide. However, since the notes are not visible once you start the PowerPoint, for your convenience, I have also copied the stories onto slides 10, 11, 12 so you may print them off prior to the assembly to learn by heart, or, to read from during the assembly if you wish. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students.

Slideas: five simple questions

Slideas: five simple questions

Slideas is a generic term for a set of slides which are most suitable for secondary or tertiary learners, and are useful as icebreakers, attention grabbers or mood changes - or just a bit of fun. The resources are free, and use basic powerpoint. This sequence of slides asks 5 questions, which on the face of it, are easy - and produce quick but usually incorrect answers. This is not only funny, but has a serious side: why is our initial, quick, response so often wrong? This relates to Daniel Kahneman’s book ‘Thinking Fast and Slow’ - where the intuitive, quick answer (system 1) is often incorrect…

Slideas: you'd never guess

Slideas is a generic term for a set of slides which are most suitable for secondary or tertiary learners, and are useful as icebreakers, attention grabbers or mood changes - or just a bit of fun. The resources are free, and use basic powerpoint. You’d never guess contains a dismissive quote about a famous and successful person, followed by their photo. It can simply be a bit of fun, but it has its more serious side, in showing how people can succeed despite the views of others…
