David Morse's Resources

I am regularly uploading resources that I have created during nearly 30 years as a teacher. Most of these are maths, but there are some ICT/Computing and Tutor Time activities on the way. All of the resources that I upload are my own and are not available from third-parties. These resources have been tweaked over time and I have had many happy lessons and shed-loads of happy and successful students. At the end of last year, the TES announced that I was the most downloaded new author of 2017 😀

Kindness Quotes (Wall Display, Mini-Cards, PowerPoint)

Kindness Quotes (Wall Display, Mini-Cards, PowerPoint)

(0)
Printables and PowerPoints Below is a description of how my lesson would typically go… Start: I have the PowerPoint running as the students arrive. It should go through a few loops by the time everyone is settled. As the PowerPoint is running, I give out the min-cards (one between two/three). Activities: I ask the students to discuss the quotes and arrange them into order so that the quotes that they like the most go at the top. I stop the class and have a discussion about favourite (kindness) quotes and why they like them. I might also ask why some were not liked. I then ask about kindness that students have shown, or kindnesses that have been shown to them. What were their feelings at the time (and now). Using the Internet (if students are allowed phones), or otherwise, students can find/make up some other kindness quotes. Class discussion on some of the additional quotes (I might add new quotes to the PowerPoint) Ending: I display the ‘finish-the-quote’ PowerPoint and go through and see if students can finish the quote (I might go through this a couple of times). I might pick individuals to answer, if too many are shouting out!

Angles in Parallel Lines (Worksheets with Answers)

(5)
Three differentiated worksheets (with solutions) that allow students to take the first steps, then strengthen and extend their skills in working with angles within parallel lines. Click 👉 tes.com/…/worksheets… to download similar style worksheets on other topics. These worksheets are great to use in class or as a homework. They are also excellent for one-to-one tuition and for interventions. This download includes a special PowerPoint which allows individual questions to be enlarged and answers to questions to be revealed one at a time. 👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

BiDMAS (Codebreakers)

(6)
Four progressive and engaging codebreaking activities to to help build fluency with BiDMAS. Students work out the answers to the questions, use the encoding table to find the matching letters, then solve the resulting anagram. The sheets can be printed or displayed on a whiteboard for whole class use. This activity is great as a starter or plenary but can also be used as a short homework activity. Answer sheets are included.
Expanding Two Brackets (Loop Cards)

Expanding Two Brackets (Loop Cards)

(3)
These are excellent for one-to-one tutorials and interventions. They are also great when working with small groups or as a starter/plenary for a whole class. For Loop Cards on more than 50 other topics click 👉 tes.com/…/More…. This particular set of cards allows students to practise finding the product of two binomial expressions which are both in the form (x ± ?). Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised. Colour coding: All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions: KS2 – red and orange KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple Further information: In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm. 👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.
