World Book Day Quiz

World Book Day Quiz

Another one of my 'interactive' Quizzes - this is #3!The pattern is the same as my other ones - so TV Intros, Who Am I?, Films, Dingbats etc. However, all of these have a focus on World Book Day - so all the questions are linked to books. You could, obviously, do this at other times though!It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a number of clues!) right up to my Upper 6th English. There are rounds my younger class did much better at!!! It should happily take up a lesson or a tutor period - the answers are included at the back.You can pick up my other two quizzes - in the same format - here:End of Term Quiz #1End of Term Quiz #2

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.

The StressFreeClassroom - an audio guide to dealing with classroom stress.

The StressFreeClassroom - an audio guide to dealing with classroom stress.

Hi. Steve here.I wrote and recorded this program for you if you're a stressed teacher.Maybe you're like I was, fed up with the downsides of teaching and dealing with the inevitable classroom stress.Good advice about seriously dealing with stress wasn't easy or cheap to come by. Relaxing with meditation tapes, more beach holidays, reorganising and reprioritising... they only went so far.Tired of waiting for change, I did something about it myself. After all, this was my life!Disenchanted, I quit teaching. But that wasn't the end of the story.Now I can say: there is hope, and it's not been your fault.In the program are the practical lessons behind my career transformation.In all my years of classroom and leadership experience, my work in complex-needs schools, professional development, mentoring, teaching in many London schools, tutoring of autistic students, approved teacher status for dyslexia and specific learning difficulties... no experience was ever enough to know what to do about feeling so *&@*.Driven to investigate - and invest in myself - I studied all kinds of practice and psychology including the latest in Neuro-Linguistic-Programming, Direct Instruction, Discovery Learning and Human Needs Psychology™. I read books, listened to top thinkers, attended VERY expensive training and tried new technologies like binaural beat meditation.I made some startling and helpful discoveries. Yet, these also began to disturb me. To grow I had to move out of my 'industrial age' classroom thinking.By design, I started applying and combining specific techniques. Finally - because what we do is 80% psychology - I coordinated a set of what I believe to be the most down-to-earth, simple, valuable and useful real-life practical thought-tools ever assembled for you: the teacher.It's all in The Stress-Free Classroom, and I'm back teaching. I use it all - every.single.day.Of-course you don’t need to be a trained psychologist or doctor to benefit and this program is in no way a substitute for professional help.Still, you can apply each step-by-step technique immediately, any time you need it, on the spot, and have it work in under 30 seconds.My teaching - my livelihood - was on the line; I have written the program with yours in mind, and every word you are reading right now.I give you everything you need to know in an instantly accessible, compact, revolutionary 50 minutes of listen-anywhere-mp3 in your life :)It's less time than an episode of The Walking Dead, (which is exactly what I felt like).Do it for yourself, ask me anything and please let me know how you go. Steve.
