Survival Kit for Casual Relief Teachers
Since first compiling this resource in 2010, the classroom of the 21st Century has changed rapidly. Collaboration amongst teachers has also evolved, whether it be through Facebook, Blogging, Weeblies , Wiki spaces, Livebinder, Symbaloo, Twitter, Pinterest etc. There is so much on the internet now that at times it can become consuming and slightly overwhelming. I have included more website links and included a description of each website and what you will find there which is new. The activities remain the same. I have been building up my Pinterest Boards, so have included links to them within the book. Hope that you enjoy the layout.
After 30 years of teaching, I thought it was well overdue to start sharing all those gems that you use in your day to day teaching that help make learning more meaningful and fun.
I began to build a resource kit for myself when I began casual teaching, and then I realised just how many ideas and activities I had been using over the years. I have spent many hours searching through websites, searching books for great ideas and activities.
I have now collected and compiled my book of activities and hints for casual teachers ......
A survival Kit to take with you when the phone rings, and you aren't sure what to take with you.
The eBook can be used with any storage, to access when you need a quick activity or weblink. Copyright is granted to print off 1 copy for personal classroom use.
First and second hand accounts
I hope that you find this resource helpful with explicit teaching of first and second-hand accounts of an event. They have been based on Australian events for use in Australian schools, or if you are studying Australia as a unit of work.
Extensive research has gone into each passage and they have been written to fit the purpose of this teaching focus
There are prompt cards, language analysis charts, comparison templates, links to footage of the events on youtube, links to some fantastic resources to practise this challenging activity (including powerpoints)
Ever needed a quick activity to have in your toolkit that is guaranteed to interest your students, and also use as a stimulus to discuss the work of MC Escher and then look at making your own 'optical illusion' art activity. This is a bundled powerpoint and flipbook giving you the option of which you would prefer to use with the IWB with your students.
