Student Reflection journal. Develop a positive mindset

(0)
Are you looking for a resource that will help your students to develop goal setting and growth mindset through reflection and self monitoring? This resource is designed to be used over the course of a year, so that there is a record of self evaluation taken by students throughout the year.  Self reflection and monitoring are skills that we all need for life. This resource will engage your students throughout the school year, and at the end they have a record of achievements and changes that they have made as they have grown. Developing a positive mindset amongst your students is such an important and integral part of the hidden curriculum, but basic to all of our daily lives. It is not a skill that comes easily and one that needs to be explicitly taught and fostered to enable your students to build a positive mindset. This can be added to your students portfolio as a record of achievements and for reflection. Photocopy extra pages as needed, and I hope that this resource serves you well throughout the year. Suitable for students in middle to upper primary grades. This is an instant download pdf file for you to print and use with your students. Teaching suggestions are included. The best part? This resource requires NO PREP and is easy to use. You can choose to print these pages for students to use a printable journal or booklet. What people are saying about this resource Very satisfied “I have been using these for the new semester to help my students prepare for student led parent conferences. My students struggled with them at first but now they look forward to using them and meeting with me to complete them.” Very satisfied “They are great forms and work better in person than for distance learning. Students are learning to look at what they are doing and how they can work to improve instead of waiting for someone else to tell them.” Very satisfied "Great product to use with my students while we are working hybrid and in virtual settings.

Motivate and engage your students with these fun no games that require little or no preparation. Perfect for Morning Meeting activities -Fun Friday games, rewards and brain breaks, this NO-PREP game bundle is highly motivating for your students. -From time to time, as relief teachers we will go to a classroom and find that there is no lesson plan waiting. If you are familiar with the subject at hand, you can typically use the textbook as a basis for a lesson about the topic currently being taught. However, an issue arises when you know little about the class’s subject. Improvising for Relief Teachers -It is best to come prepared for the worst with activities and ideas of things to do with students which will engage and keep them on task. Obviously, it is always best to relate any work that you give to the subject if you can, but if not, it is still important to keep students busy and on task. In terms of classroom management, the worst thing to do is to just let them talk. This can often lead to either disruption within the class or even worse noise levels that disturb neighbouring teachers. -There are countless skills that students can develop through game playing such as critical thinking skills, creativity, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. -Obviously, you will need to use your best judgment about which will work with a class of students. It is also best to prepare with several of these as backups, just in case one is not working as well as you think it should. You can also get student input on which they would like to do. -They are great fun, and I have tried every one of them in my classes. Quickly and easily plan an activity, physical education lessons or math and spelling game with these NO PREP ideas. -We all need to have these games up our sleeve for those lessons that may run short by 1-15 minutes, or as a brain break. This booklet is a must have for any teacher working as a Substitute or Relief Teacher. -Easy to implement (simply have the PDF on your phone or external drive for easy reference) Index is hyperlinked to make finding and activity even easier for you. Included in the booklet are over 40 activities including: Introduction  Icebreaker Questions Would you rather? This or that? Kim’s Game Human Knots One Fact Sort Yourselves Out What’s the Mystery Object? Celebrity Head Alphabet Letters Guess Who I’m Thinking of? Heads Down, Thumbs Up Silly Sally Going To A Party, Going To The Moon Hula Hoop Pass Grandpa’s House, Grandmother’s Cupboard It Could Be Worse …and much more!

Teaching Suggestions •Show your students images of different objects. •Next to each word is a list of three ‘banned’ words •Children must describe the object without using any of the given words. •There is a 2-minute timer on each page to add some excitement to the activity. •NO HAND GESTURES OR MIMING ALLOWED •This can be played in teams, or with single players. •Ideal for use with second language learners, to encourage using a wider vocabulary and to speak clearly and succinctly to the group. •This makes for a perfect lesson filler, introductory ice breaker or as a brain break in your classes. •You have been provided with a PDF and PowerPoint version of the game so that it can be printed off onto cards and used for individual students to look at yet hide from their peers. •The PowerPoint version can be used on a variety of devices or on the IWB. ( the rest of the class need to turn away from the board while the image of the object is shown). Students can then click on the timer which is the prompt for the rest of the class to turn around and begin guessing what the object may be from the clues given by the student chosen to be the ‘describer’. This is for use by one teacher in one classroom. If you would like to share with your colleagues, PLEASE purchase a multiple license. Thank you :)
