Growth Mindset Train the Brain Vocabulary Words Game

Growth Mindset Train the Brain Vocabulary Words Game

This fun and engaging Jeopardy Style Game is the perfect way to learn or review about Growth Mindset. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy

Character Education VALUES Super Bundle (all 10 units included!)

This Character Education on values super bundle is a crucial element for strengthening the core curriculum and ensuring our students are building strong character and values in order to help them succeed in school and for the rest of their lives - talk about having an impact!? This 20% off bundle includes all 10 character units: • self-esteem • resilience • self-respect • empathy • courage • honesty • compassion • respect • tolerance • leadership Sadly, teaching teens about character and values is often put to the bottom of the pile, yet did you know that it is the foundation for all success? If you want your students to do well in your class, I believe you need to be teaching them positive ways to think and act, now while they are young! It will make them more confident and resilient and ensure they have the self-belief that they can succeed. Product includes: • 160+ slides of PowerPoints - all are fully structured so no prior experience is required to deliver them. The text is also editable for you to modify as needed! • 90+ pages of Printables to go with each unit - graphic organisers go perfectly with the PowerPoints if you want your students to record their thoughts as you discuss. There are also fun bonus homeworks included for each unit! They are in a PowerPoint format so they can easily be converted to Google Slides for paperless activities if preferred. • Over 240 unique discussion cards to develop speaking and listening skills in class. Your students will learn the following in each characteristic area: • how to define the character trait • how to analyse their own and others' character • where they might need to demonstrate said characteristic • signs of positive character trait • signs of negative character trait • what can affect change in character • self-awareness of their own character • actionable steps to build character *This set includes 10 characteristics in a super saver bundle: save 20%* In order to ensure these important skills can be integrated into our busy timetables, these resources have been designed to make it as easy to deliver as possible! Each unit includes a structured PowerPoint that guides the class through discussions about each of the 5 characteristics and effective skills on how to strengthen them. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! On top of this, the PowerPoint text is editable so you can modify the content to suit your students’ needs, should you wish. Also included are bonus graphic organisers which are supplementary to the PowerPoints: they work as helpful tools for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for bulletin board displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion task cards in each unit to spark conversation and thoughts on each characteristic: these can be printed off for each group of students, or they can be used in whole class discussion – it is up to you! So help build your students' character / values and encourage them to be all that you know they can be! Great for Character Education, Social Skills, Health Class, Life skills and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health, Education) lessons.
