Teaching in a Primary Snowglobe

I have finally taken the plunge and uploaded resources. It is so important for teachers to work together and share content. Especially as a primary teacher when you are making resources for every area of the curriculum. Please review my products and leave a comment. This will help me improve and know what kind of resources you would like to see.

Country Factfile Flags

Country Factfile Flags

Pupils research a country for basic information. 2 per page. Draw flag on the back. I used these for First Level (P2/3) with an atlas and online websites. Suggestions for use: Print on card so the research can be recorded one side and pupils can draw the flag of the country on the other. Then attach paper straws to one side to make a 'flag' for a great display!

Times Table Tests 2x-12x SPEED TESTS (INCLUDING ANSWER SHEETS!)

Times Table Tests 2x-12x SPEED TESTS (INCLUDING ANSWER SHEETS!)

COMPLETE PACK of times table tests. All multiplication tables are included with each times table mixed up. This is not like any other resource as each times table is kept separate! Thus allowing for pupils to revise a particular times table before another one. I have used this will all stages and abilities, seeing the benefits of individualised speed tests. This is a resource that has taken a long time to create but it was worth it. PLUS ANSWER SHEETS ARE INCLUDED!!! Suggestions for use: Once a child passes the test, they move on to the next one. 5 minutes to answer 50 questions. This way, the whole class sit for 5 mins together even though everyone can be on a different times table! The answer sheets are great for peer assessment for swapping tests.

Levels of Understanding (Editable) - Assess pupils understanding

Levels of Understanding (Editable) - Assess pupils understanding

The resource contains 2 different versions: one with numbered levels 1-4 and the other with labels (beginner, apprentice, master, expert). Pupils can either identify the level by number or if they are at, say, master level. Fully editable resource that can be adapted to suit your needs. Please Note: When printing, choose to frame the slides so you can see the full effect of the numbers. They are meant to fall outside of the page so if they are moved, you will not get the same effect. Suggestions for use: I created this to see the pupils understanding at a glance. I may get them to write the number at the end of their worksheet/jotter or on whiteboards. They also write LOU=4 in short as we have practised the process many times.

Slow Writing Criteria (Editable)

Slow Writing Criteria (Editable)

Slow Writing enables pupils to 'slow down' and think each sentence. By implementing the writing techniques that have been previously taught, they are able to see the difference it makes to their writing. As it was difficult to find any criteria that matched my needs online, I created my own versions. These are 2 differentiated tasks that can be used for a writing lesson or assessment of writing/grammar techniques. Fully editable so you are able to change the criteria to what you have been working on with your class. PDF version including both files for an easy print.

These posters can be used as part of a writing display or a clip chart.

Posters include: Pre-Writing, Draft, Revise, Edit, Peer Reflection, Final and Evaluate. Each poster includes what the pupils are to do or think about in each part of the writing process. -More suitable for upper primary school but can be used at any stage. I currently use these with my Primary 7 class. -Print on card or laminate for durability.

I created this resource for assessment purposes at the beginning of the year. It contains various multiplication questions ranging from 1x to 12x table. A pupil sheet and an answer sheet is provided. Suggestions for use: Pupils to answer 100 questions in 10 mins. I used a timer on the smart board and pupils would note down the time taken to complete the challenge.

Daily Behaviour Tracker (Editable)

Daily Behaviour Tracker (Editable)

I created this resource to track pupils behaviour each day. Each section has been categorised to cover all aspects of behaviour that may occur in the classroom. Suggestions for use: I used a tally mark system to record behaviours in the appropriate category for each pupil and used the note section to write details on the behaviour. Pupils knew there would be consequences/loss of some rewards if 3 or more marks were recorded on the chart each day. But it is entirely your choice how you use it and would welcome ideas!

Times Table Tests Recording Sheets (For Speed Tests Results)

Times Table Tests Recording Sheets (For Speed Tests Results)

I use these recording sheets to keep track of the times tables my pupils are working on. As they are all at different stages, this is the best way for me to keep track while allowing pupils to progress at their own pace. Included are 3 different recording sheets for teachers - choose the one that suits you! Also there is a pupil recording sheet so they can record their own results. I give them a folder and they stick this at the front so results can be recorded as they put their tests away.
