How to be a successful TES writer for FREE! Two books - one for beginners, one to boost sales more

I love writing for the TES and it does make up a substantial part of my monthly salary. I originally write a book to help people get started. I have now written a second short book to help people take their original TES teaching resources and make them sparkle a little bit more to help them get better sales. I consider myself a successful TES Gold Author and I am now wanting to share my wealth of ideas, resources and links for FREE with other TES users to help them to become a successful TES author and also to help guide them on the first steps towards success... This book tells them why they should become a TES author, where to find ideas to turn into presentations, where to find the free images which will help them to make their presentations a success and how to promote their work so that it becomes a highly sought after resource. Try it today. I love being a TES author and it is certainly a passion for me. I want others to now also follow in my footsteps and also become successful and happy TES authors, the easy way!

FREE Year 1 Termly Maths Assessments Using The Wigan Maths Assessment Papers

FREE Year 1 Termly Maths Assessments Using The Wigan Maths Assessment Papers

While the Wigan LEA website disappeared, taking all its maths resources with it, I kept a copy and then made a complete set of PowerPoint Maths assessments I want to share with everyone. These would be great for revising for the KS1 SATs tests. There are two different formats, you can either show them a question, then let them work out the answer and check their answers, or you can show them each question in turn and set them sme time to find the answer and then ask them the next question until you finish the test. I have also included the original test papers for teachers who want to print out all the test papers and answers all in one go. I hope you find them as useful as I do with my own class.

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.

Thinking Hat Detention Reflection Worksheet

Thinking Hat Detention Reflection Worksheet

I have designed a Thinking Hat Detention Reflection Worksheet. What makes it special? It makes the student think about their actions from 6 different angles. It looks as the positives, the negatives, the facts, the feelings, the future and where their actions might have been correct (thinking creatively). Then there is an interesting thought web to complete on the back of it. It is just a nice way to reflect on the actions without getting angry or being punished with more work etc... If you like this resource, please leave a comment and a review. For more of my teaching resources, please visit my Educational Resources Blog (http://www.timetoteach.co.uk).

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

I want to make KS2 SATs revision fun. I want it to be something students and teachers really enjoy. I have taken each of the SATs tests and combined the original test papers and the original marking schemes into PowerPoints where you ask a question and immediately see the the answer on the next slide. This teaching packs covers KS2 Maths and KS2 SATs SPAG tests (Spag is English grammar, punctuation and spelling Papers) The idea is that you can now ask a question and all your students show you the answer on their mini-whiteboards and then you discuss the answers together and see what would have got one or two points. As the students can work in pairs or small groups on the questions, they are less stressed and enjoy the whole revision process. In addition, it gives them a chance to learn about other student's strategies. This pack could be used in the classroom for whole class teaching, for small groups or at home as a great teaching resource. If you like this teaching resource, check out my teaching resources at http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk. If you like these resources, be sure to leave a nice comment. Nice comments make my day, and motivate me to write more teaching resources.
