Mostly secondary maths resources here but you will find the odd English number sashaying in with jazz hands, occasionally followed by a primary resource cartwheeling behind. The resources are a mix of those I've used for tutoring (could be any age, any subject), those I've used in my training and those I've used in the classroom. As well as a few ideas that I needed to get out at 3am even though I have no use for them right away.

Literary Devices Matching Activity
kfrazer92kfrazer92

Literary Devices Matching Activity

(0)
This resource contains 27 literary devices and their definitions as well as three column headings: device, definition, example. The example column is to be provided by the learners and can be done in relation to the texts that you are studying. Ensure that the cards are cut out in advance (or as a minimum cut the sheets into strips and get pupils to cut down further). This is simply because the definitions correspond to the device in the same location on each sheet. Because the definitions and devices can be matched easily from the uncut sheet, it makes this a brilliant task to be used during a cover lesson if a non-specialist is delivering the work. The front sheet provides visual instructions to support learners during the task.

Suitable to be used as a weekly homework across the year where you can measure progress in the build up to SATs with a reduced need to complete practice tests or as part of independent revision work in class as SATs week gets closer.

AfL Confidence Rating
kfrazer92kfrazer92

AfL Confidence Rating

(0)
This pack contains three different resources. One set of tray labels for collecting books in. Pupils then assess their level of confidence in the lesson and put their book on the appropriate pile. This helps you to identify which books will need that extra amount of care when marking. One set of desk cards that pupils can use to show their confidence rating during the lesson. Either encourage them to place their eraser on the emoji that matches how they feel or when you are walking around you could build a routine where they simply point to how they are feeling at that time as you cast a cursory glance over their work One set of exit posters that pupils can put a a blank post-it on (or even a question or comment) as they leave the classroom to show how they are feeling about a topic or single lesson. This works well if you think your pupils will be more honest with anonymity or if the pupils are taking their work home. Each resource contains a Red/ Amber/ Green rating system which is accompanied by an emoji and words making it suitable across ages and ability levels and perfect for SEND classes. This is a very easy to implement AfL system that encourages pupils to take note of how they are feeling in relation to their learning.

Teacher Planner - Ideal for Trainee/ NQT

(0)
Teacher planner that is perfect for trainee teachers and NQTs. It has a pages for Monday to Friday plus a single page for the weekend. Each weekday is split into 5 lessons with before/ after school, break/ lunchtime and form period. If you would like these pages to follow a different format, let me know and I am happy to update the post. This is just the most common school day in my area. There are also pages for targets, lesson reflections and briefing/ meeting notes. These are perfect for you to fill in to not only gain an idea of where you are developing and what keeping track of what needs doing, but also for you to be able to use to collect evidence for your standards file (it’s what I am using them for!) There is also a list of the standards included. Simply print the pages that you want/ need and you have your own teacher planner. My preferred way to organised them is in a standard A4 ringbinder separated into each of the six halfterms.
