I am a French ESL teacher and we're not used to teach methods like growth mindset because we have so many other things to teach, but I was very interested by this pack, and the kids loved it!
It's really fantastic to engage students as learners, and to show them that any mistake is but a step towards success.
It takes time but when you do it on a, maybe not daily but weekly, basis, it has some positive effects on students!
Another good point : the graphics, they're funny and attractive!
As a new teacher, so glad I found this website. The instructions pack is brilliant... all the pieces of the puzzle I need as I embark on my new career.
The Reasoning Pack
Loved some of the activities in this pack. Made great use of the (1) 'What's wrong?' set of questions as they were across the range of ability for my third class and some were challenging enough for my stronger kids (2) Also loved the 'Always/Sometimes/Never' activity as it leant itself to small group work and much discussion when we came to the answers. It started a debate about whether "zero" was an even number or not - talk about switched on to lateral thinking in maths!
Has been really helpful for the introduction of persuasive writing. Lots of ideas that I would not have thought of. The children enjoy the variety. Thanks for saving me so much time.
I absolutely love these packs! Teaching Ideas create such eye-catching, helpful resources across a diverse range of categories. Really appreciate all of the hard work that goes into making each pack.
Excellent resource. The children found it much easier to annotate texts using your key vocabulary sheets. The examples were great and really influenced our reports on Beowulf. Thank you.
The children loved these! They were used in their morning activity packs and they asked for more and more!
Absolutely fantastic at prompting creative vocabulary from the class! Really makes them think about what they are writing!
I have a 4.1/2 year old grandson who loves gardening when he visits us. Everything we see regards wildlife in the garden we find a download on the computer and then put it in his 'special' folder for gardening and wildlife.
This plants pack is just great for him to learn even more and the photographs/charts are great for showing and explaning all about the plants side of gardening.
Along with his forest school, this pack, and his ability to work with nature outside in the garden or woods makes him very aware of what goes on around us today. Kids love nature and getting dirty given the opportunity to do so, everyone should be given this chance no matter how young.
Download this pack and start the kids off on an adventure with nature and the great outdoors. You will love it and so will they.
Teaching the Maya for the first time was quite difficult as there are not many resources available as there are for other topics.
imagine then my surprise when using this resource- fabulous display about the time line of events- this was used as a visual stimulus for the children to create their own timelines, we discussed the events- each pair chose a date/event researched it some more and in their own words presented it to the rest of the class. All the children learnt tons without having to do all the work and it was an enjoyable way to start off The Mayans. The pictures of the Gods were also enthralling for the class, they decided which ones they liked/disliked and then tried to find associate gods/ demons on other religions which seemed similar, we also discussed the rituals and ideas the Mayans believed in which created another in depth lesson surrounding rights/ beliefs and rituals. we also linked this to our own RE lessns and discussed how their beliefs could have interjected with ours!
Another fabulous display was used surrounding the calendar of the May- the children found it hard to understand the differences but we made our circular calendars and put the pictures around the edge with a split pin they could rotate them easily, looks great surrounding the Mayan display board!
Great work has been produced from using all these resources.
The teaching guide was by far the most useful resource for me as teacher; I could read up and learn before each lesson, enjoy and gasp in disbelief at some of the rituals but again very informative. Thank you- you made it so much easier to teach this subject.
Very helpful. It will be very useful.
This made teaching angles so straight forward with activities for all abilities. The children really love the birds angles game. Well done - wouldn't be without these maths packs to get ideas and the guides are always so useful.
Phonics PackAnother great pack. A huge amount of material which is also very colourful for younger children. Will keep us busy for ages!
Thank you for another great pack.
I liked the variety of activities offered
This is a superb pack bursting with information. Lots of high quality, very informative resources, which I am looking forward to using. The ebook offers an insight to every aspect of the Mayan way of life. Thank you!
Great resources that have saved me hours
Really fantastic, high quality resources which include ideas for lessons on every subject. Finally, I get my weekend back! Thank you!
Used this resource to go back in time to the construction of Hadrian's wall on a recent stay in Northumberland. This was a VERY useful resource (boy age 7) and I tailored the pages to the ones I knew we would get most out of, numerals and money, families and children, gods, events cards, activities etc. Many of the classroom banners, posters etc are not for us but nevertheless it still left a decent chunk to choose from. I am hoping to find some way of downloading some to ipad in an interactive form, possibly by using ipads notes which can handle pdf with the on screen writable feature.
Thanks for this amazing resource. We use it with young autistic adults.
This pack fits perfectly into what we need to cover in Maths,look forward to both the Australian and New Zealand edition of the pack...where do i go to look at the preview of the Australian pack?
The Time Pack
I have used the time pack very successfully with a variety of year groups. The posters, cards and information in the pack are all very easy to use as they are bright, easy to read, a quality learning tool. I printed off and laminated all the cards and posters.Once my unit was completed the laminated cards were left out in my maths area of the classroom for the children to use when they had a spare moment.They are fabulous and I wouldn't be without them.......I love all the hands on....children love being able to use and hold the cards,posters.....much better than sheets or online activities. Thank you Teaching Packs!
This pack has been absolutely fantastic. The students were all engaged and there were positive outcomes all around- I learnt as a teacher and the students have benefited greatly. Absolutely recommend.
The Money Pack
Hi Mark and Helen,
I have just finished downloading the Money Pack and can't wait to use it! As a supply teacher, I have recently been teaching money to KS1 children and was very aware of the gaps in an 'all round' understanding for them. Your pack is BRILLIANT; it fills in all those gaps, so essential for a solid understanding. Also .. your 'Money Movie' worksheets are going to be PERFECT for my Year 6 next week, after their Sats, to give them a creative change. Well done once again; BRILLIANT, thoughtful creativity in all teh resources that you provide!
This is a fantastic resource for helping children to understand the recent changes in UK currency. Really looking forward to using them. Thank you Teaching Packs!
Instruction Writing Pack
I used this pack with my current Year 3 class. After searching the internet for some clear and visual display resources I finally came across Teaching Packs. This pack had everything I needed, not only for a simple and clear display, but also well differentiated lesson resources. As a class we did a cold write of what to do when the fire alarm sounds. We then planted seeds and wrote a set of instructions using the resources from this pack. Finally the children had to follow the lizard card instructions independently and then improve them. An extremely valuable resource that saved me so much preparation time, that I was able to concentrate on helping the children really grasp the features and concepts of instructional writing. Thank you Teaching Packs team. GREAT job!
I am so happy to have found and joined Teaching Packs.
The Human body pack was the first pack i have used. i can not wait to use more. Simple and easy to follow. Thank you!
