There are many situations in which teachers find themselves having to focus or ‘ground’ students at the start of lessons before meaningful learning can occur. It may be at the start of the day, following lunch break, following lessons outside the classroom such as P.E., after students have been away from school on-site visits, etc. This two-book photocopiable series from the experienced and popular author Peter Clutterbuck provides fun, engaging and purposeful activities that will assist teachers in this regard.
In undertaking these activities, the students are not idling away valuable learning time on some fill-in game. Instead, they are working on challenging, stimulating material that reinforces and extends their knowledge of core curriculum areas. For each activity, the focus and the curriculum area covered are indicated. Each one-page activity takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. There are in excess of 80 activities in total in the series. Activities can be self- or peer-marked and answers are provided. Regular teachers as well as emergency and relief (sub) teachers will find this series invaluable.
- Book A includes General Knowledge Activities; Health Activities; English Activities
- Book B includes Geography/History Activities; Mathematics Activities; Science Activities; Art Activities; Special Day activities
