Teacher Shelly's Shop

Teaching is my true passion and I love making interesting, interactive resources. I'm a bit of a secondary generalist as I teach English (KS3 and IGCSE), Science (KS3 Science and GCSE Biology), KS3 Humanities and GCSE Environmental Management. I've also dabbled in primary school teaching in the past. As such, my shop is a varied mix of resources! Hope you enjoy looking around. I'm also a google certified educator so will be adding some blog posts and google based lesson ideas on here in time.

KS3 Science Revision and Self Assessment Booklets (Y7,8 and 9)

KS3 Science Revision and Self Assessment Booklets (Y7,8 and 9)

I made these booklets to guide my KS3 Science class through revising for their upcoming Progress Tests. There is one booklet for each Year group with the objectives drawn from the Cambridge KS3 Science curriculum. I have tried to make the objectives as succinct as possible and phrased them in the form of 'I can' statements. The booklets contain links to videos, interactive websites and simulations. I teach a multi-graded class (Year 7,8 and 9) so found these booklets particularly useful in helping stronger students to revise independently while I worked more closely with weaker students. For each topic, students must complete 1-2 tasks then rate themselves for each objective as red, amber or green. I suggested they use this to help establish what they need to go back and study further.

Thailand

Thailand

Full Term study on Thailand. I developed this for my Stage 8 class as we are doing Thailand for the International Food Fair. I lived in Thailand for 2 years so most of the photos are mine and topics are based on my own experiences. My class really enjoyed this whole unit - they loved learning a bit of Thai and got really enthusiastic about the tasks! There are 9 topics in total and I have included worksheets/notes that cover everything on the Powerpoint so your students won’t need to write anything down. The Powerpoint is not heavy on text as I preferred to project images and diagrams and layer on detail in class discussion but there is more information on the worksheets. Most topics include a build in assessment task (Tasks on the PP and worksheets). The topics are: Introduction to Thailand Language and National Sport (Muay Thai) Festival and festival Culture Buddhism Climate and Weather Brief History of Modern Thailand Food Plants and Animals of Thailand End of Unit Quiz You can make it run longer or short depending on the ability of the class, how often you have Humanities and how much enrichment you add. For example, when we studied Muay Thai, we did a short Muay Thai class for fun. Feel free to email me at shellyschutte20@gmail.com if you want anymore information.

6 Speaking and Listening tasks designed to be spread out over the course of a term. I designed this for my Stage 8 English class in Thailand where abilities ranged from a few words to almost fluent.

I have included a general rubric that can be easily adapted for each task. It is designed to give the student meaningful feedback that they can use to improve their speaking skills. I have also included a Forbes Article on Giving Good Speeches

Observing Diffusion: Demonstration

Observing Diffusion: Demonstration

Two very nice tasks to get students thinking about how particles move and interact during Diffusion. The first involves the teacher spraying air freshener and students drawing how the particles spread out. Task 2 involves leaving a gummy bear in water overnight and observing and recording any changes.

General Peer Evaluation Sheet for Speaking and Listening Task

General Peer Evaluation Sheet for Speaking and Listening Task

I found many speaking task evaluation sheets on the web were too specific or difficult to format. Thus, I developed this general evaluation sheet. It is designed to give the student meaningful feedback that they can use to improve their speaking skills. It is also easy to modify to any task or theme. I hope you find it useful!

Weather and Climate Project

Weather and Climate Project

This is a half term project designed to run simultaneously with a unit on Weather and Climate. Students have to collect data from a school weather station (or alternative) as well as track and make notes of major weather events in their local environment and happening in the news.

The task was designed to be used in Krabi, Thailand but can be adapted for any location with minimal effort.
