Goodies to share
I was notified (22.5.12) that I need to attribute the source of the new AC and AusVELS templates that I’ve developed under the Creative Commons licence it has.
“Reproducing the F–10 Curriculum (but not the AusVELS logo or VELS logo), is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Australia (CC BY NC SA) licence. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/au/”
So: please note that any templates or units of work on this site which include any reference to VELS, AusVELS or the Australian Curriculum are hereby attributed to VELS, AusVELS or the Australian Curriculum.
All the work that I have done on them is freely given, one professional to another, and may be copied, shared or modified as much as you like, but you’d better attribute the VELS, AusVELS or the Australian Curriculum bits if you do.
From the Australian Curriculum Literature & Research units for the Primary Library page, you will find links to resources for
- the Foundation Year (called Prep in Victoria)
- Years 1 & 2
- Years 3 & 4 and
- Years 5 & 6.
From those pages you will be able to download the resources I have developed:
- Planning Templates
- Units of work
- Personal Learning Journals
From the CBCA Shortlisted Books Resources page you can find various worksheets I’ve developed for ‘one-off’ lessons.
From the Films Follow-Up page, you can find activities and worksheets designed for follow-up after films shown in the library.
From the Literature Templates page, you can find all purpose templates, which you can adapt for different books. I am building up this resource so that activities use strategies for the development of thinking skills.
From the Library Worksheets page, you will find worksheets for picture book activities which are designed to teach SLAV Primary Library program skills Levels 1-4 (Prep-Year 6). (From there you can also find the link to the CBCA shortlisted books activities).
Other units that I’ve developed with colleagues and which I have their permission to share can also be found on the Australian Curriculum Literature & Research units for the Primary Library page.
NB These resources are in various stages of development. I am not very interested in tidying things up for publication, so they are not exemplary, but just the way they were when I last designed or edited them. (Every time I teach a unit or work, I change something.) Feel free to use them, but please acknowledge their authorship, and email me via the comments box below if you would like to share some of your resources in return.
PS If you find any of these resources interesting and decide to download them, could you please leave a brief comment? This page generates lots of traffic, but without any feedback, I don’t know who the visitors to the site are, so I don’t know whether to bother adding more resources to it.
