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

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.

International Volunteer Day - PowerPoint Presentation + 31 Different Teaching Activities To Try

International Volunteer Day - PowerPoint Presentation + 31 Different Teaching Activities To Try

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.

Weekly Happiness Diary - 7 Reasons to be cheerful...

Weekly Happiness Diary - 7 Reasons to be cheerful...

I have created a simple set of worksheets to help students to focus on what is good in their lives. They can complete this work at the beginning or the end of the day. They could even have it set as homework one week. The idea being that if students know they will need to write about being happy, they will actively seek out happiness to write about. When students write about being happy, they relive that happy moment, and of course become happier!

Story Start Pack - different short stories and ideas to develop into stories.

Want to inspire your students? These pictures form the basic parts of a story to get them thinking. The pictures can be simply mixed up to change the story. The different pictures from the different stories could all be mixed up to create a really interesting mash-up of different stories. A real challenge is to see if a class can create a whole story from all the different images in the presentation!

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

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

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.

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job Get the students working in pairs. Give one person of each pair the Student A page and the other the Student B page. There are four different jobs being advertised in the local paper. However, there are ten gaps on each page. Students should ask each other questions to find out the information that is missing from their page, then write it down, asking for spellings as necessary. Encourage them to communicate verbally to get the answers, rather than letting each other look at their pages! When all the students have finished, bring the group back together and ask checking questions to elicit the answers, as well as to find out how much the students have understood about the other material in the adverts.

Design a Game 4 Template Boards I have collected 4 different blank board templates - the idea is for children to develop their own board games and their own rules. They then need to teach the rest of the class how to play their game. Lots of talking, discussion and communication skills.
