3D Monthly Desktop Targets Pyramid, Motivational Quotes And Positive Behaviour System

3D Monthly Desktop Targets Pyramid, Motivational Quotes And Positive Behaviour System

Make target setting an interactive, hands on activity! This ideas is based on a simple 3D square based pyramid net. There is space on each side for students to write down their monthly English, Maths and Social targets. There is also a space for their name and something they learnt in the previous month. I added the motivational quotes so students appreciate what they are learning towards. I added the positive behaviour system, where the students move around the track each time they achieve their pyramids targets! The harder they work, the faster they move around the track. Lots of fun for everyone! I have created this worksheet in black and white so teachers can either print them on white paper or onto different coloured papers, the idea being to change the colour of the pyramid every month, so everyone knows which pyramid they should now be following.

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

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.

Thinking Scarves - The Creative Thinking System for Primary Schools

Thinking Scarves - The Creative Thinking System for Primary Schools

I would like to introduce a brand new concept in thinking. Thinking Scarves. For a long time I was a huge fan of thinking hats... until a teacher one day wrote to me and said she did not like Thinking Hats as the Black Hat was very negative and could help to reinforce negative stereotypes about the colour black. In contrast, "White" was seen as a straight down the line, honest hat. The facts, pure and simple, without and falsification or misinterpretation. I then thought I am a teacher. Why not simply reinvent the whole system - forget about hats - scarves are the answer. With scarves, you can share them between friends, creating a closer bond between the thinkers. Make a thinking system which works perfectly in a primary school environment. Green - What is positive - makes you feel good? Red - What is negative? What makes you feeling angry or upset? Purple - what are your general feelings towards a character? Like purple, feelings can be hard to define. Gold - Make 'n' Shake - Follow your dreams and all the streets will be paved in gold. Blue : Facts - Facts, like the sea and sky can appear endless. Guide: No scarves, just a handy bag to carry all the scarves in and organise them into some sort of order. I would love other people's opinions on this concept.

Teaching students how to run or hide in a terrorist attack - Child friendly booklet.

Teaching students how to run or hide in a terrorist attack - Child friendly booklet.

After the Paris terrorist attack, good advice came out from homeland security on what to do if you face an attack. However it was focused on adults and not child friendly. I thought I would create a simple book which explains to children what is now recommended in the case of an active shooter attack. You should however still point out that this is an incredibly unlikely event - but one students now need to be prepared for.
