Learning Polish Is Fun Bundle

Learning Polish Is Fun Bundle

Are you learning Polish? Are you looking for fun images to share with your students? I took my ESL course and I adapted it to help teachers also teach Polish. The worksheets are in English but there are 57 different settings and 114 pages of worksheets to translate into Polish. Students can use these pictures as a focus for their conversations and also for fun end of lesson games, where they recall the new vocabulary used in each session.

My Dutch Teaching Resources Bundle

My Dutch Teaching Resources Bundle

If you are learning Dutch and you are looking for a way of translating from English into Dutch, then this is a great start. This resource would still need a dutch teacher as everything is in English. You look at the pictures and try to name things in Dutch.

When I used the original book with an interactive whiteboard, I was always annoyed at having to skim to the end of the book to show an answer. I wanted it on the next page. In addition, I have now replaced all the pictured with much more stimulating colourful pictures. I have also taken the time to follow the advice of Dudley council and sorted the different problems into age groups and blocks. You will notice there is some repetition of problems both between blocks and in different year groups. The students can try the same problem twice at different times, as this is excellent consolidation. It is also an excellent time to suggest students think about how they could change the problem. How can this be used in the classroom? This could be used as an assessment at the start or the end of a unit. It also could be used as an emergency set of lessons for any teacher while covering another teacher’s maths classes. In addition, it is also an excellent set of resources to prepare for different exams. Look at how the students resolve a problem and identify the different ways different students attempt to answer the same problem. In addition to answering the problems, this is also an excellent time to look into inverse operations. How do we know we have found all the answers? How do we know we have found the correct answer? I have really enjoyed making these mental maths problems a lot more accessible. I have enjoyed teaching them in a wide range of different classes and I hope that you too will enjoy making maths fun.

Year 5 Termly Maths Assessments - Perfect For Preparing For Optional Year 5 SATs Tests

Year 5 Termly Maths Assessments - Perfect For Preparing For Optional Year 5 SATs Tests

I love Year 5 Wigan Maths Tests. While they are little old and don't follow the current curriculum, they are still an excellent set of tests for revision purposes. I have taken the traditional tests and converted them all into PowerPoint presentations. On top of this, I have given teachers the option of either letting the students only see the answers at the end or after each question. I really like the second option as it means I can set a question, then give them a little time to think about it or discuss it in pairs and then show them the answer and discuss the different ways different children or different pairs found their answers. This is as much a learning experience as the test itself for many children. I really hope this pack is useful for lots of teachers.
