Previously TES recommended author of 3 resources. Interactive resources, many of which involve Powerpoint or Excel to make Maths easier to plan and engage! Specifically I like to design repetitive yet engaging resources, which are often progressively difficult to foster calm lessons , create routine and encourage excitement in learning. 4th year of teaching, got an IMA scholarship for my potential ideas. Currently working in Spain in an international school, originally trained in England.

Calm a Class in Seconds, Great for after Lunch Lessons, or Love Island Season

Have you had your lessons disrupted because of chat about the latest reality show, or love island… Watch the video below for more information or read: The aim of this timer ‘game’ on excel is to calm students down when they have come into the classroom in a hyperactive manner, such as after break or lunchtime. It is a quick tool to use, but can be very benefitial in its effects on students’ behaviour and encouraging Mathematical minds in a competitive manner. Alternatively it can be used as a tool to get students to get a better feel of ‘time’ by guessing how many seconds have elapsed over a given period of time. The aim is you get students to rest their head on the desks and you start and stop a timer provided for you on excel. This timer can be usefully hidden from prying eyes. After a number of seconds, or perhaps minutes (if your class is particularly lively), teachers can then obtain guesses from the class. These times are then subsequently typed into a column within the spreadsheet, and can later be compared through the click of the button to the actual elapsed time. There are macro buttons for comparing the time. Firstly you can reveal the differences in time between their guess and the actual time, additionally you can click a button to reveal a winner. This gets students to get a better feel for time, understanding the difference between seconds and minutes, ensuring a calm start to the lesson and gets students engaged in a competitive manner.

Stumped for how to make your lesson more exciting. Look no further. This is a fully comprehensive resource containing over 15 minutes worth of video footage and 23 powerpoint slides detailing exactly how to use Bitmojis in lessons. There are 7 different ideas, 5 of which are covered by the video. This is to add an element of surprise, intrigue and excitement into lessons. To get a feel of what the videos include, what the youtube video below.This comes after a year of trial and error of using these myself with years 5 - years 11. Please review if you found helpful.
