I try so hard to keep things organised, however I am constantly moving around the school and things get easily misplaced and then lost. I decided to create this resource board for my most commonly used items in the room that I teach my KS3 and KS4 lessons in.
The plastic envelopes have a zip at the top and are stapled to the display board. Pupils are able to access the sticky notes when they need them and I can easily give out the coloured card and plenary postcards for quick and easy plenaries at the end of my lessons. I also have an envelope for my rewards postcards, which pupils earn through good work or contribution in the lesson. Having the postcards visible to pupils has worked really well as a motivation technique, as KS3 pupils are so keen to earn one!
Other ideas for a resource board which could easily be put into envelopes:
- Pens and pencils
- Spare paper
- Extension tasks
- Key word glossaries for pupils to complete
- Help sheets for differentiation
- Reflection cards for unfocused pupils
