When you write a lesson plan do you take into account the fun factor?
Is your teaching vibrant, alive, entertaining and absorbing for your students?
Are you the teacher that you've always imagined yourself to be in your heart of hearts?
If you answered no to any of the questions above you may need help. That's where Teacher-Lesson-Plan-And-Resource.com can help.
We all know as teachers that we're "up against it" in today's environment battling against the internet, computer games, movies, videos & DVD's and entertainment of all kinds in trying to snare a share of a child's attention and interest (let alone their respect).

Added to that, teachers all over the world have to face a continually crowded curriculum and the expectations of parents, supervisors and principals.

A simple start can be as easy as decorating your room with paintings done by your children related to a specific reading theme or having live animals to look after like a fish tank as I've done here with my Year 2 class...
You can set up your own classroom tank by following these instructions...
They really enjoy having some "ownership" of how the room looks and when they get involved you've made a great start in winning them over. But that's just an idea for a start, right?
We need to continue our relationship.
