Head of Mathematics and also a teacher of Economics. My previous roles have seen me teach abroad as well as an AST, so lots of experience looking at how pupils learn and structuring teaching to promote progress. My passion is teaching and learning, quite simply. All my resources are very systematic, attractive, organised and should be easy to follow and use.

Colour Me In Sheets or Doodle Notes - Angle Rules

(0)
This is a colour me in sheets or doodle notes to help pupils learn, revise and memorize key facts on Angle Rules. It works extremely well as a resource to give to the pupils while going through teaching slides as they can colour, doodle or make extra notes. Research shows the benefits of this type of visual left-right cross brain activity. It is shown to help learners make connections, relax, retain key principles as well as being fun and enjoyable. It also means that students will have great notes to revise from and notes in exactly the way they learnt it in class (also aiding their memory). The sheet also includes a simple one question mini test for AFL and to further pupils confidence and assess understanding of the teaching part of the lesson. This sheet mirrors and accompanies the first three lesson on angle rules to be found in the links below: Lesson One - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/angle-rules-1-at-a-point-straight-line-worksheet-11402277 Lesson Two - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/angle-rules-2-angles-in-parallel-lines-worksheet-11402446 Lesson Three - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/angle-rules-3-angles-of-triangles-worksheet-11736163 NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback on downloads or purchases.
