Part of the TES Resources SPaG series. To help improve literacy across secondary subjects, this colourful 'desk placemat' can be printed and laminated for students to refer to during written work in any lesson. Topic words can be listed by the teacher before printing or can be added with a dry wipe pen by the student once the place mat has been laminated.
Quiet Critters They live in a soundproof jar & only come out when it's quiet. Loud noises hurt their ears, but whispering is ok They love to sit on students' desks & watch & learn from the students. If the student is too loud, they get moved to the other side of their desk. If they continue to be loud they go back into their jar. At the end of the quiet lesson whoever still has a Quiet Critter on their desk can have points, a sticker or whatever incentives you have in the room.
