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.

Margin markers - Capital letters - Marking for literacy.

Margin markers - Capital letters - Marking for literacy.

Margin markers allow you to quickly mark book whilst still giving timely feedback at a relevant point in students work. Their design ensures that marking for literacy is more than obvious in any book scrutiny and they can save you hours of time in marking. Students should show they have responded to your feedback by overwriting capital letters and you can then just tick. Quickly showing a feedback loop and marking for literacy.Print onto stickers (30 per page) or A4 paper and stick into margin. Margin marking keeps printimg costs to a minimum. Feedback is always welcome and we will use our response to distribute voucher codes as they become available. A small selection of free teaching resources is also available at sellfy.com/pigeonlearning.

Space Mission: Find us a New Earth!

Space Mission: Find us a New Earth!

The year is 2086, and the students are needed for a special mission!This space mission has been designed to provide students with a fun and interesting group challenge, whilst also building key skills in critical thinking and collaboration, and essential knowledge for Science, English, and Mathematics. Students are placed in a scenario in which Earth is no longer habitable, and humans must seek to move to another planet in the Universe. Compiled for them is information on each of the potentially most habitable planets that are known to man (these are the real planets that have been confirmed by NASA and other agencies as having the most potential for life). In reading the key information, students will be drawing upon their knowledge of Science terminology, and will need to make some Maths calculations to work out implications of living on different planets. What will become clear fairly quickly is that none of the potential planets are perfect, and they must use reasoned judgements to determine which of them have cons that could perhaps be overcome. They then present their ideas, using clear and articulate speaking and listening skills, and write up their report, using appropriate written communication (a scaffold is provided to frame this).Everything is provided for you to download, print, and teach:- A comprehensive, whole-activity PowerPoint that guides the students through the mission;- Detailed and colourful information sheets on each of the contender planets for being the next Earth (these include links to amazing websites that can provide the children with more information);- A 'Pros and Cons' scaffold, to help students record their findings;- An information sheet on the 'habitable zone' around stars;- A scaffold for writing up findings;- Sorting cards for help with determining the key features of habitable planets;- Full teacher guidance.Considering the time and effort that it took to create these resources, I think that they offer exceptional value. Whenever I have used this activity before, it has taken at least 2-3 lessons, including the introduction, starter challenge, main mission, presentations, and write-up. I originally have used this with mid-ability Year 6,7, and 8 groups, but colleagues have easily adapted it for students across key stages 2-4.All images have been cited at the end of the PowerPoint presentation and are licensed for commercial use.

General Election Assembly

General Election Assembly

General Election Assembly - Who should be our next prime minister?6 weeks to go … and bored with the General Election already? Then this assembly is your perfect tonic!As for our narrator, who would envy their task of choosing a prime minister - from a class of 30?! The choice? Football stars, movie stars, rock stars ..... and a whole lotta girl/boy attitude between the Spice 'lot' and a certain Direction! Somebody needs to tell them about equality - and who better than .... S Club 7?!This is a very light hearted look at the coming election. The ‘possible candidates’ are a selection of celebs – chosen purely for entertainment sake.For a more serious ‘take’, the script could be adapted to include a far more serious list of people either now or in the past e.g. Gandhi, King, Mandela, Mother Theresa etc.Likewise, whilst dealing with the current topic of the election, this script could be used for citizenship because of its PSHE component – this latter could be extended by adding a section on ‘What would you change if you were prime minister?’Duration: 10 – 15 minutes reading time; around 20 – 30 minutes including music suggestions.Cast of 30 - easily adapted up or down; and characters may be replaced by children’s own choices.Sample TextChild 1: I think David Beckham should be prime minister!Child 2: Nah! It’s got to be Lionel Messi!Child 3: No! Wayne Rooney has my vote!Child 4: Rubbish! It’s got to be Cristiano Ronaldo!Narrator: (Blowing whistle) Excuse me! Since when did any of these footballers know anything about politics? They might be pretty good at running up and down a pitch, but running a country? I don’t think so!(Exit Child 1, 2, 3 and 4)Narrator: Next!(Enter ‘athlete’ – Child 5)Child 5: I’m here representing the world of athletics! I’d vote for Jessica Ennis!Narrator: (To audience, sighing) What is it with kids and sport? (To Child 5) Yes, I can see why you might think Ms Ennis would set us all a fine exampleChild 5: A prime role model! An inspiration to us all!Narrator: Yes, yes. I totally agree! But there is a difference between running along those tracksChild 5: In record times!Narrator: And, …..let me finish…., running the country! (To audience) Am I having a moment of déjà vu or didn’t I just say that a very short while ago? (To Child 5) Anyway. Thank you … but no thank you!(Exit Child 5)Music 3 Theme music from Doctor Who

Digital Planbook with Google Slides-Black or White High Contrast/Neon

Digital Planbook with Google Slides-Black or White High Contrast/Neon

Why Plan Online?My teacher planners are always totally cute-but I don't carry them with me all day. Not carrying a huge book shouldn’t limit my ability to work on the go and use those pockets of free time to prepare for my kiddos, so I began creating this planner based on my needs and have added ideas based on feedback from others. Since I have my google drive on my phone I ALWAYS have access to my plans. If I get a good idea, see something I want to add to a lesson, snap a photo that inspires a great science talk-I just upload it to my drive on my phone and it is all RIGHT THERE no matter where I am. Major Perks!Access it anywhere you can connect to the internet. ANYWHERE!Copy/Paste links to videos/images that you want to use in your lessons. This makes it so much easier to pull up the things you want to show! Duplicate pages you use over and over so you don’t have to retype/write things again and again. Share with colleagues for collaborative planning. Work with a team that shares planning responsibilities? Awesome-everyone can access a shared plan book to add their pieces-even at the same time! New year? No Problem! I plan to update this each spring with new calendar pages. You can make a copy of next year’s file and then use the Insert > Import Slides button to import any of the items from previous years that you want to use again. Want to use different planning styles for different units? Easy! Just duplicate the slides you want to use and place them in an order that makes sense to you. Once this planner is yours, you can make as many as you want. I organize by quarter so I have four. I duplicate what I need and delete the rest!
