Purposeful Praise for Pupils, Teacher Stationery to Make Teachers Happy and Unusual Uses for Washi Tape!!!

Join Jane Considine and Heather Wright for insights and discussions around planning for praise to give pupils a concept of what good looks like, a stationery unboxing with Rachel from The Positive Teacher Company and types of worries from a gorgeous picture book.

This week, Heather is grateful for daffodils and spring progress , while Jane is grateful for retro school dinners and a hug of a pudding!

Our guest this week is Rachel from The Positive Teacher Company, sharing how stationery can support teacher well being and make teachers happy.

In Sentence of the Week, Heather thinks about how we make room for praise, plan for praise and make the best use of praise in our lessons. Jane gives this thinking a double underline!

In this week’s Wonder of Words, Jane shares from Nadia Shireen’s picture book, Geoffrey Gets The Jitters, while Heather shares from Benjamin Dean’s new middle grade, The Boy Who Fell from the Sky.
