Microteach: Appropriate Behaviour for Independence

This is a lesson plan for a 20 minute microteach on the subject of socially appropriate behaviour for increasing independence.

The 3 Wise Monkeys

The 3 Wise Monkeys

This teaching toolkit technique called “the 3 wise monkeys” has been designed based on one of my favourite proverbs “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. The idea is that students take on the role of the 3 monkeys: Mizaru, who sees nothing; Kikazaru, who hears nothing; and Iwazaru, who speaks nothing. It aims to promote challenge, listening skills, student interaction and peer teaching. Comes with student template to be adapted to any subject and any topic and teacher instruction sheet.

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

This 24-page booklet is intended to prepare children and young people for meetings that they are invited to attend. This could be a termly or annual review, looked after child review or any meeting where the pupil’s voice is really valued (as recommended in the SEN code of practice). It is intentionally simple to accommodate a range of needs and ages. By preparing pupils well beforehand, they will better understand the purpose of these meetings, be more fully engaged in them and have a lasting record of the decisions made there. It is also hoped that the owners of this book will be encouraged to personalise the booklet by adding their own photo next to the box on the front cover alongside a drawing that they have coloured in. Some images to colour in are included along with drawings of people (if a photo is not available). Additionally, there are some bubble letters to use should they want to put their initials on the front cover. If not, those pages do not need to be included in their booklet. It is intended that appropriate text and photos will be added to each page in whatever way is most meaningful to the young person. A visual timetable and a ground rules prompt is also included to laminate and display prominently at the start of and throughout the meeting. The typeface of the booklet has been deliberately sized and coloured to be accessible to those with visual impairments and difficulties processing text.

The World News Crossword - April 29th, 2018

The World News Crossword - April 29th, 2018

The World News Crossword document is a one-page crossword based on the events of last week’s news. There are also two one-page ‘Search and Cloze’ puzzles: Facebook users’ personal data and What started the Syrian civil war? These extra puzzles give students the opportunity to learn a little more about two recent news events. The crossword includes questions the EU ban on an insecticide that’s been killing bees for years, Japan’s objection to the mango mousse at the North and South Korea summit, and the really big news about the Tasmanian devils. There was also big news that Australia’s government is spending 500 million dollars to rescue the Great Barrier Reef and a university in Melbourne was evacuated because of a toxic gas leak (which turned out to be stinky rotting fruit in a library cupboard). But it’s less about what happened last week around the world and more about why. That’s the discussion that students will create among themselves as they complete this crossword. Why are India and China having a border dispute? Why did Myanmar’s sort-of leader contact the UN and not just lead her country? Why is a virus killing indigenous Australians? Why is Facebook making so much money? Or how? Why is Saudi Arabia at war with Yemen? What does the rodent population in New Zealand have to do with climate change? The World News Crossword is an excellent homework activity because it encourages students to watch or read the news. It’s an excellent group-activity for home room because it encourages students to use their IT for research. It’s an excellent activity for encouraging problem-solving skills.

Carrot Dip: A visual one page recipe to make Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Dip.

A visual one page recipe to make Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Dip. It has visual images to assist in easy reading of this recipe. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. This notebook is designed for the students to use it as a visual sequence when cooking. They have all the ingredients and utensils needed and then an easy to follow recipe. It has an inbuilt shopping activity so that the cooking can be integrated into a shopping program. Within the shopping part which encourages literacy skills, students can choose what they will buy and then make their own shopping list by either writing it or sticking the associated visual onto their shopping list. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match the ingredients as well as a writing sheet. At my school, my students run a in-school cafe for staff and visitors and dips are also a favourite for our customers.

KS2 Maths (The Mean)

KS2 Maths (The Mean)

These topic-focused SATs questions at the end of a unit will help to test and extend students’ understanding as well as helping them to prepare for SATs next year. These questions have fully-worked solutions which can be displayed on a whiteboard making feedback with students more efficient. Click 👉 tes.com/…/KS2-Maths-Questions… for similar-style compilations on the other KS2 topics.<hr>This particular compilation is from the STATISTICS strand and contains questions on The Mean. There are a few standard questions, but also plenty of reasoning questions which require the students to show that they understand the relationship between the mean and the total.<hr>I have designed this compilation to be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet which is in the style of the actual SATs papers and is convenient for use in class or as homework. It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’! KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.
