FREE KS2 21 Day Happiness Course For Kids And Teachers - Really works!

I have developed an idea. Did you know that during your registration period every day, you could be actively making your whole class happier? This could be done in the morning, the afternoon or even better at the end of each day before they go home. All they do is complete this 21 page daily journal on things which make them happy. I have used it and I can say it does make a big difference to how you approach life.

(1)
You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different activities being shown in each of photos. I have combined a great presentation on volunteering with 31 different fun teaching activities you can try to do with your class. These activities will help boost their confidence, memory and vocabulary skills. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about International Volunteer Day. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different voluntary activities. The students can then discuss what they think each one was saying or thinking. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Teeth - Taking Care of Them and correcting them. PowerPoint + 31 Ways Of Using Resource in Class

(0)
You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different activities being shown in each of the photos. This display shows you what a trip to a dentist is like, and why it is important to look after your teeth. There are lots of different discussions you can have with your class, including having false teeth and the importance of wearing braces when young. This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide using these photo flash cards. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Teeth. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Teeth related activities and objects. The students can then discuss why they think each one is important. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
All about me pennant - Getting to know you activity + Thinking Hat Reflection Sheet

All about me pennant - Getting to know you activity + Thinking Hat Reflection Sheet

(0)
You simply print off this pennant at the beginning of the year as a Getting to know you activity. I like the idea of laminating them and placing them directly above the different groups of children. The children can quickly learn more about each other. The students have a chance to set themselves a fun target to achieve in the year. At the end of the year the students can then look again at their targets and see if they have achieved their goals. This could also make a very homework task. Get them to build up their pennants using different materials from around the home. I added a reflection sheet for times children are not quite as good as you would like.

FREE KS1 21 Day Happy Kids Course - Makes Children Happier!

(0)
I found a wonderful 21 day happiness course (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks2-21-day-happiness-course-for-kids-and-teachers-really-works-11205744), which I personally use daily. However it is not very useful for younger children. I rewrote it, getting the students to think about 4 things which are good in their lives and one moment of happiness from the current day. You would be amazed how hard this is for children to do. By doing this each day, every day for 21 days, picking out the positive and happy moments becomes a part of their every day existence. It has an additional benefit in the fact that this is also an excellent point of time for teachers and children to discuss each day what makes them feel good and what went well on the day. I would recommend this as an afternoon activity. To see examples of my own journals and those of my 6 year old son, please visit my blog at http://www.Barefootbuddies. com. Please leave a comment below to say how it went in your class.

Wordless Stories - Too Many Bananas - a lovely story from India.

(0)
Summary No one wants to buy the bananas that Sringeri Srinivas grows on his farm. Read to find out what he does with them and how he saves the day! This teaching pack comes complete with a presentation of the pictures in the book, a link to the original online story book and a worksheet showing the pictures in order. The presentation was originally made for my own ESL students who love having a structure of prearranged pictures to help them develop their own stories. The lovely thing being that different students can complete the same task, only using different words.

Wordless Stories Writing Pack - Topsy Turvey - What it is like when nothing makes sense.

Summary Everything is turning upside down in a little boy's house. Read this book to find out why. This wordless story reading, speaking and writing pack, takes a simple story about a boy and makes it much easier for students to attach words to the different parts of the story. There is a link to the original story, so the students are also able to compare their own stories to those of the original. I created this teaching pack as I needed to teach my own ESL students the skills needed to become story tellers. They so enjoyed it, that I thought I should also share the materials with everyone else as well!

Wordless Stories Writing Pack - Vayu The Wind

Summary Learn about the things that Vayu, the wind, can make happen. This is a great story writing pack. The students are given the images and the link to the original book so they get a good idea about the story. The students use the images to create their own versions of the story. They can mix up the images and create entirely new exciting stories. I wrote this presentation for my own ESL class. I was asked to create a wordless story writing task. My students really did enjoy this task and it did help them to extend their vocabulary.

Summary A little girl learns that humans are animals too. This story writing pack is different from many others, as the images come directly from a professional painter. The story is linked to the original so the students can get a good idea about what is happening. The pack comes complete with worksheets so the students can cut them out and rearrange the story in their own books. This teaching pack was originally written for my own ESL teaching class. As the students all so enjoyed completing the activities, I thought it only made sense to share these lessons with everyone else!

Anti Stress Colouring Book - Enjoy some colouring therapy.

(0)
Teachers need some fun to. This is my adult colouring book for teachers. You could print it out for your class to quietly colour during tests (when they have completed them to calm and relax them), or during long staff meetings - nothing is more relaxing and constructive than a little light colouring. This is to encourage staff to have a little time every day to think and reflect and not work. This is my attempt at improving the good life balance of staff. All these images were in the public domain. In the majority of the cases however, it took both a long time to find, then even longer to use editing software to sharpen and improve the images. I would love to know what people think of them.

The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
