Teac he r

Ready-Ed Publications was established in 1984 with the purpose of creating practical classroom activity student worksheets. At the time, the role of the teacher was becoming ever more diverse with an increasing range of duties and responsibilities within the school and school community. Since then, the role of the teacher has continued to evolve with an escalating range of tasks and obligations, ensuing a reduction in time available to prepare work for the daily instructional program. Throughout these past 24 years, Ready-Ed Publications has built a reputation as publishers of Australian made, high quality, innovative, timesaving materials for teachers of students aged 5-12 years. In addition, all materials are based on state or national curriculum guidelines or specific age-related interest areas and subjects.

Rationale

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

In an ideal world, teaching would be about planning great lessons, delivering them with ease to an expectant room of students, critically evaluating the outcomes and beginning the whole process again. The problem is all the bits in between. Children learn from a jam-packed pre-school life of computer games, DVDs and bouncing children’s entertainers not to pay much attention to things that don’t grab them – mainly you. In addition to that, the school day has become a series of interruptions in between which time you are allowed to teach. If that isn’t enough, there are continual situations of you being called out of class, dumped with the nonswimmers or non-campers, being left to entertain the entire school choir for the 10 minutes until lunch (knowing you are tone deaf), and similar situations which leave the average teacher frazzled.

Just Before the Bell should always be close at hand as a godsend for any wise teacher who knows to expect the unexpected.

Just Before the Bell provides games, puzzles, quiz questions and lateral thinking activities. These activities are useful as attention grabbers to focus students at the beginning of a lesson, or are equally perfect as wind-down activities or endof-session rewards. As they are designed to be minimum preparation activities they are easy to pick up and deliver within a matter of minutes. As gap fillers, emergency situation activities and as a relief teacher’s bible, this book is full of activities that will interest and engage students.

How to use this book

Teac he r

Whilst all pages in this book are photocopiable, many pages are essentially designed as a reference tool for teachers. Activities can be completed without the use of photocopying provided there is a whiteboard available (there is a minimum amount of text needed to be copied on all activities).

ew i ev Pr

All the activities in this book have been compiled with the intention of providing quick “pick up and deliver” lessons. Most activities require no equipment and no preparation time. If preparation or equipment is involved it is outlined in a coded box. Also included in the coded box are quick references to the suitable age range and approximate length of the activity. This allows you to be able to find an appropriate task as quickly as possible.

Some pages contain instructions aimed at students, although teachers may wish to copy and distribute them.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons 5+, 10-15, 20+ Minute Equipment •f o rr evi ew pur pose sonl y• activities

. te

It is assumed that teachers will have access to a whiteboard/blackboard, and that the students will have pens and paper. In the few cases that there is a requirement for equipment above and beyond, it will be listed at the beginning of the activity.

m . u

w ww

The activities have been organised into three sections: 5 minutes +, 10-15 minutes and 20 minutes +. These labels act as a guide only. Many activities in the shorter sections could be extended or, alternatively, longer activities could be completed in parts.

Excellent for grabbing and focusing attention quickly.

1 . Perform a series of actions, repeating them as an instruction as you do them. E.g. “put your hands on your head”– you put your hands on your head

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

“click your fingers” – you click your fingers

2 . After a few such actions try to catch the children out by saying one action which they are to follow, whilst performing a different action yourself. “touch your eyes”

Teac he r

E.g.

– you touch your ears instead

Students take turns to clap the rhythm of a person’s name in the class, without saying the name or looking at the person, e.g. Melanie Robson – ti ti ti ta ta James West – ta ta

Nicola Butler – ti ti ti ta ta

Chantelle Chapman – ta ta ta ta

The other class members put up their hands and try to guess the correct name by clapping it back and saying it at the same time, e.g. “Ni-co-la

But-ler” (clapping)

1 . Choose a category of items, e.g. vegetables. 2 . Students sit in a circle and take turns to slap their knees twice and then clap once in the following rhythm: slap slap clap, slap slap clap, slap slap clap, etc. 3. The whole circle repeats the following poem together in time to the beat:

. te

o c . che e r o t r s super

Hey there, listen up! (slap slap clap) Say it, say it fast (slap slap clap) If you get all tongue tied (slap slap clap) You’re not gonna last! (slap slap clap)

4 . After each verse the teacher says: Name four “vegetables”. 5. The first student names four different vegetables in time to the same beat, e.g. carrot (clap), mushroom (clap), cauliflower (clap), pea (clap) 6. The rest of the group immediately follow with the poem and the next person in the circle will take a turn to list the four items again within the beat. Students that are out of rhythm or too slow are out. Extra: Change the categories to increase the difficulty of the game. E.g. name four – boys’ names, animals, fruits, countries, etc.

Keith is eight years old and lives on the tenth floor of an apartment building, two blocks away from his primary school. Every day, he gets the lift down to the street and walks to school. On the way home he gets the lift to the seventh floor and then walks the last three floors up the stairs.

Teac he r

(a) Why does he do it? (b) About once or twice a week Keith rides all the way to the tenth floor – why?

A truck driver takes a left at an intersection without indicating and then turns right at a “no right turn” signal. He does this right in front of a police car but they don’t stop him and give him a ticket. Why not?

He can’t leave the chicken alone with the grain as the chicken will eat the grain and he can’t leave the chicken and the fox alone together as the fox will eat the chicken!

A merchant employs a school boy to carry two sacks of salt from his village to his market stall to sell. The sacks are filled full of salt by his friend in the village and are picked up by the boy. It is a hot journey, however, and the boy gets tired and decides to go for a dip in the river on the way, taking the sacks in with him. This cools him down but half of the salt washes away in the water. When he gets to the market stall and the merchant sees what the boy has done he is angry that half the salt is gone but the boy lies and says it was not him who ruined the salt. This happens every day for three days until the merchant decides to teach the boy a lesson and sends a message to his friend in the village. What was his solution?

Once a dog named Lulu lived on a farm. There were three other dogs on the farm – Maisie, Noah and Paddy. What do you think the name of the fourth dog was?

A girl goes to a shop and asks for an eraser. The man asks whether she would like a plain one or one in an animal shape. The animal shaped eraser costs 50c and the plain one 40c. She chooses the plain one, hands over a 50c coin and gets 10c change. The next day she goes into the shop, hands over her money and asks for an eraser. Without asking, the man gives her an animal shaped eraser.

. te

1 . One student stands at the front of the room with his/her back to the blackboard.

o c . che e r o t r s super

2 . Another student writes the name of a celebrity above and behind the standing student’s head.

3. The first student then asks a series of “yes/no” type questions to the class to help them guess who they are. The number of questions can be capped at a certain number, for example 21.

Guess the Word

Play this in the same way, only use a word instead of a celebrity name. Encourage students to ask questions like: “Is it a verb or a noun?” “How many letters does it have?” “What letter does it begin with?” (Only one letter may be given.) E.g. Does it have to do with nature, science or sport, etc?

1 . Choose three students to stand in front of the class. 2 . You choose a letter and the students have to each step forward at the same time, as fast as they can and say the name of any country, city town or place that begins with that letter. 3 . The slowest of the three sits down and you repeat with the remaining two students with a new letter. The winner of the round puts their initials on the blackboard and when there are three winners, they match each other in a championship round.

Arrange students into two groups.

1 . Divide each group into two halves. Each half will perform to the other half of their own group, i.e. Team B splits, works out their song choices and then performs to the remaining Team Bs. 2 . Students stand up with a school text of some sort and have to sing a well known tune, using the text in front of them as the lyrics. For example, they might be singing a passage from a book about rainforests to the tune of “Advance Australia Fair”. 3 . The rest of their group will get a point if they can guess what the tune is.

1 . Choose one student to be the leader. 2 . Students stand behind their desks and throw the bean bag to class members, saying their name first. If they talk they are out. 3 . If they throw an uncatchable throw or drop a catchable one they are out and have to sit down. 4 . The leader can change the rules of catching, throwing and calling every time that they are in possession of the ball or bean bag, e.g. one hand catches only (right hand); two hands catches on one leg; calling by first and last initials, etc. 5 . If a person forgets any of the current rules they are also out.

*The game is complete when there is only one player left standing.* 23

Setting the Scene

1 . Arrange students in groups and give them a scene to go away and practise and then mime in front of the class.

(See Suggested Scenes below.)

2 . Remind students that no props are allowed and so they need to make the class very aware of what is going on entirely through their actions.

3 . When each group comes to perform their mime, the class must watch silently for the first few minutes, then students who think they understand the scene put their hands up and are chosen to silently enter the scene and continue the mime in character for a minute or so.

• For middle primary students, read out the real definition and two others (you will have to make these up). The team chooses the one they think is correct, getting a point for each.

• Copy ten of the words on one side of the board and the definitions on the other. In teams, students match the words and the definitions. They are given three chances to have their attempts checked by you. Each time, tell them ones (if any) they have correct and how many others (without specifying which ones) are incorrect. Students then have the opportunity to change their choices until their chances are up.

A spoonerism is the name given to a play on words that mixes up the first two sounds of adjoining words. They were named after the Reverend Spooner who, accidentally did this a lot. Read or listen to the example of a “spooner story” below.

“Right oh,” said Fred. “Do you have an umbrella Annie? It’s roaring with pain out there.”

One day, Fred heard Annie was looking for a babysitter for her daughter Molly Sue and he offered to come over, hoping he would be calm enough to win Annie’s affections.

When Annie came home that evening she found Fred sitting up reading a book by the heater.

Then she told me herself it was past her teepy slime and I poured her a bot hater wottle and she went straight to bed. She’s a great kid, you should be proud of her. And you, did you have a nun fight?”

“Hmm, no”, replied Annie, “But I don’t have far to go.” “Well make sure you cark the par close,” said Fred, and with that Annie was off.

Teac he r

There was a man called Fred Blogs who was the butcher in a small village and was in love with a woman called Annie Price. Fred was a very nervous man and had problems with mixing his words. The first day that Annie came into the shop, Fred accidentally introduced himself as “Bled Frogs” and the more he got to like her, the more he found it harder to speak. Over the course of a month he offered her “chew tops, some bricken chests and a pilo of kork mince”.

Fred turned to Molly Sue and breathed a sigh of relief, “Ok Solly-Moo, this is the pun fart. Got any games for an old bloke like me?”

“Why Annie,” he said, “You grook late.”

“What?” said Annie, “I’m late?” Annie frowned looking at her watch.

Annie smiled at him, looking a little blank as Molly Sue came toddling down the stairs.

“Hi there, Solly Moo,” he exclaimed and he bent down to shake her hand and ruffle her hair.

“Yes,” said Annie hesitantly, looking at the grinning Fred, “A very nun fight,” she said, a small smile slowly spreading across her face. “Fred, are you able to babysit next weekend?”

“Right then, I’ll be off,” said Annie.

• Write your own short “spooner story”. Well known phrases work best to create spoonerisms. And some phrases naturally sound better than others. Use your own or try some of these phrases : *knife and fork *lunch time *save the whales *a pack of lies *jelly beans *toe nails *cat flap *block of flats *good week *leaky tap. N.B. Words beginning with a consonant are best. 37

Give each student a blank piece of paper to write on. Explain that everybody will be writing a sentence of a few different stories.

1 . Write on the board: - Who? (any character/ person’s name) - What? (an action, e.g. sailed down the river, went shopping) - How? (adverb: e.g. in a hurry, very quietly, boldly, shyly) - Where? (on the river Thames, in Melbourne, Australia, etc.) - When? (on Tuesday at half past 6, on Christmas Day) - Why? (because she was bored, because he wanted to see Santa, etc.) 2 . Ask children to start by writing the name of a person at the top of the page on the left hand side. It could be a made-up name, a famous person, name of a classmate, etc. After they have written their name they should fold the paper over and pass it on. 3 . The next student will write the action part – a sentence about what the character did (without looking at what the previous person wrote). 4 . When all the who, what, how, where, when and why questions have been answered, open the stories and read them aloud. The results are usually pretty funny.

This activity can be a quick 10 minute filler but also works really well as a 30 – 40 minute writing session. It is excellent for children who are reluctant writers as they are given the task of “duping” the class.

o c . che e r o t r s super

Ask students to write about one incident or memory that happened to them and one that is made up. Students should be encouraged to write something that other people wouldn’t know about, (without being personal). For example, Kelly could write about the time that her brother stabbed himself with a spear gun and another story about her brother falling off a horse (obviously only one would be the truth).

*The truth/fiction pieces are then read out to the class and the class votes on whether story 1 or story 2 was the fiction.*

Place students into small groups and decide who will stay or go in the following situations:

You are in a hot air balloon with eight other people. A problem with the balloon has caused it to fly far too low. You are heading directly towards a mountain. You have thrown out all of your sand bags and now you are starting to look twice at your flight companions. Someone’s got to go – four people, in fact – to get you over the mountain! Who do you choose out of these people in the balloon?

* The prime minister of your country * A world famous religious leader * An old woman who has dedicated her life to working for charities * A billionaire business tycoon * A five year old child * A famous rock star * The hot air balloon pilot * A scientist who is working on a cure for cancer
