Pyssel: Vika bokstäver av papper – beskrivning på hela alfabetet | Hemma med ... Till sonens födelsedag förra veckan vek jag hans namn av papper. Så himla kul och effektfullt. Maria, aka Husligheter, hintade lite snyggt om att det skulle vara en bra idé att göra hela alfabetet med beskrivning. Älskar utmaningar så det sattes i gång att testa och vika. Längst ned i detta inlägg finns klipp- och vikbeskrivningar att skriva ut. Jag å dottern delar samma bokstav så den är viktigast tycker hon. Behövs: 29 A4 ark (jag hade 250g), blyertspenna, linjal, skalpell och häftmassa att sätta upp bokstäverna med. För att få riktigt vassa och snygga vik ska man rispa lätt med skalpell, på baksidan där vikryggen ska vara, längs med en linjal. Blir himla fina skuggspel på pappret vid viken och flikarna. Så nöjd med detta konstverk. Hur allt startade – en trevlig födelsedagshälsning bara.

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process I recently heard a TED talk from Brian Goldman, a doctor who admits to having made mistakes. In very emotional language, he describes some costly emergency room mistakes, and then makes a strong case for changing the way that the medical profession addresses such things. He believes that medicine will improve if doctors are free to discuss their mistakes, without judgment, allowing them to learn from each other. But, he continued, because doctors are judged by mistakes, they are too afraid to discuss them. Hearing this talk created in me a great need to examine the many mistakes I have made in my life. Those I hid Those I learned nothing from Those I learned from Those I learned from and shared my new knowledge with others. It’s the last two categories that I think have great potential to increase learning and teaching. Finding Value in Error Teachers, like doctors, are expected to be mistake free. This belief system is absurd. 9 Ways to Teach With Mistakes

Growth Mindset Made Visible With Praise And Encouragement Why do some students thrive in the face of challenges, while others fall apart? One reason is because students have different beliefs about the nature of intelligence. These beliefs serve as lenses through which students interpret their experiences in school, particularly experiences of adversity. People with a fixed mindset believe intelligence is innate. Numerous studies detail what happens when students have a growth mindset, but even when research tells us which practices help students develop a growth mindset, many educators still want to know what it looks like in the classroom. To help educators learn more about mindsets and practices that help students develop them, Stanford University PERTS (Project for Education Research That Scales) is developing the Mindset Kit. Praising the Process In Chana Stewart’s 1st grade class in East Palo Alto, California, we see her authentically Praising the Process. Process praise should be specific and authentic.

Random Pets-Animals Tutorials by Hellobaby on DeviantArt Kampen med återkopplingen del 3 « Venit in mentem ”Feedback says to a student, ‘Somebody cared enough about my work to read it and think about it!’ Most teachers want to be that somebody.” Med denna tänkvärda mening mitt i prick inleder Susan M Brookhart en av de bästa böcker jag läst om feedback. Bokens titel är How to Give Effective Feedback to Our Students (2008) och den är utgiven av den internationella organisationen ASCD med medlemmar i många länder. I boken tar Brookhart sin utgångspunkt för återkoppling i de formativa frågorna som bl.a. Vad är god återkoppling? Brookhart tar upp följande: God återkoppling ger eleverna den information de behöver för att förstå var de befinner sig i sitt lärande och vad de skall göra härnäst.God återkoppling kan eleverna förstå, ta till sig och använda.God återkoppling kan ske i en klassrumskultur där eleverna vet att konstruktiv kritik är av godo och att inget lärande kan komma till stånd utan övning. Vilka återkopplingsstrategier finns och hur kan läraren tänka? Trix och knep

NO Min lärarvän Päivi har gjort dessa fantastiska björkar med sina elever i Finland. Så fina!A3 papper, penslar, svamp och vattenfärg. Under "Grej of the day" handlade det om maskrosen. Sedan plockade vi några och kollade på stjälkarnas cylindrar och gjorde nostalgiska "krusiduller". Under mallfliken nr. 26 finns naturuppdragskort. Hitta på egna som "vilket är det äldsta trädet du ser", " hitta något som inte tillhör naturen", "rörelser"... Gör din egen läsk Zebror i kol. Klassens årstidsträd. Grodans livscykel.

Educators - Teaching Children Philosophy Have you ever thought of using children's literature to teach philosophy to elementary school children? It may surprise you to know that children's books often raise deep philosophical issues and that children love to think about them. This website contains all the materials that you need to lead philosophy discussions with your students. We've chosen a set of books that we think are remarkable for their philosophical content, and we have assembled questions to use to initiate a philosophical discussion. All you need to do is to read one of the children's books suggested by our site aloud to a group of elementary school children and you are ready to go. The question sets will guide you in getting the children to discuss the philosophical issues raised by the book. Leon Lionni's book, Let's Make Rabbits, for example, raises questions about how we know that something is real. Doing philosophy with children is a great way to improve their verbal skills. Let us know how it goes!

Embedding Coaching and Mentoring to improve Teaching and Learning | Pete Sanderson's @LessonToolbox Blog How does teaching and learning improve in your school? How open are colleagues to being coached to improve? Are teachers disengaged or anxious at the prospect of being observed? I developed the following model whilst working as a Leader of Teaching and Learning at the City of Leicester College. The vision The ideal system of embedded coaching and mentoring might involve colleagues joining each other’s lessons, inviting them to look at aspects of their teaching, feeding back ideas and thoughts of how to improve and then trying these ideas with different teaching groups. But getting to this point can be a difficult road for less confident teachers, so how can we achieve this whilst supporting staff anxiety around scrutinising professional practice? Leora Cruddas, ASCL’s Director of Policy, released “Leading the Way: Blueprint for a Self-Improving System” in February this year. Embedding coaching and mentoring – The model The basic model of embedding support is shown in the diagram below.

”Åsas teckningskurs” Varje bildlektion i åk 3. 4 och 5 börjar jag med 5 min teckningskurs. Eleverna får varsitt papper med olika mönster på som de ska rita av. Allt för att träna upp sin förmåga att iaktta och måla av. Varje mönster ska ritas av tre gånger. Det ska gå snabbt så att de inte blir alltför låsta vid att det ska bli perfekt. En del av övningarna är speglingar eller som vi skulle säga på matten symmetri. Som ni ser är det inga enkla mönster. Då är det dags att lägga ner pennan och klistra in papperet i boken. Här är det två killar i åk 4 som håller på. Det som gör mej så glad är när eleverna tittar på sina första övningar och visar glädje över hur duktiga de har blivit… Man måste öva även i bild för att nå högre och längre i sin utveckling.

untitled Education Week Grant-Beacon Middle School (GBMS) serves 460 students, predominantly of color, 85% live in/near poverty and 40% are English language learners. With two centers of expertise, the school serves a high percentage of students with special needs. What was a working class neighborhood of southeast Denver 40 years ago when my wife went to school there is now a gentrifying neighborhood where small brick bungalows fetch more than half a million making it difficult for Grant-Beacon families to live in the neighborhood, 80% choose GBMS and are bussed in. Four years ago Principal Alex Magaña describes a clear mission: high achievement and growth for all students, providing a college preparatory program of study that sets high expectations and requires critical thinking and problem solving skills. The school and website are full of visual evidence of three core strategies: blended learning, extended learning opportunities, and charter development. In his fourth year in the blended model, Mr. On Mr.

How to Draw 3D Shapes with Shading Home » How to Draw 3D Shapes » with Shading In this lesson we will cover how you can draw 3D shapes with shading. It is all about pressing the pencil down on the paper with different strength, so that the color is stronger or lighter. If you spread these different values correctly, you get an awesome 3D effect. Shading is time consuming. I needed about 8 Minutes for each of the shapes above. We are going to take a look at three basic geometric figures: The cylinder, the cone and the sphere. How to move the pencil So the goal of shading is to spread different values of color smoothly across the paper, going from dark to light or vice versa. The easiest way to do this is to move the pencil in a zigzag fashion. Different Pencils What sort of pencil you use is very important here! The mines in pencils have different degrees of hardness.This is indicated with letters on the pencils. 5H: Although I pressed the pencil down violently at the left side, you still only see a very slight darker tone. 0.

Konstens grunder nr 1 – LINJER september-15 Under några veckor i september kommer vi att arbete med LINJER. I dag har vi sett på två filmer om olika linjer och lärt oss att linjer kan se olika ut och användas på olika sätt. Allt är uppbyggt av linjer. Jag ritade upp ett förslag på olika linjer på tavlan. Eleverna fick varsin ny Skissbok där de fick rita egna linjer. Efter det att eleverna övat på olika linjer fick de välja ett färgat papper där de ritade in olika linjer. Därefter klippte eleverna isär pappret vid de olika linjerna, ett i taget.
