# Interactive worksheet

A Word document that includes interactive features such as drag and drop, drop down menus, self-check boxes or links to activities on interactive web sites.

During the Covid-19 lockdown I started working online in Google Classroom and created this L1-2 writing task (and an accompanying introductory presentation) in Google Docs / Slides. Use the presentation to introduce learners (if needed) to Captain Tom and his remarkable achievement for the NHS (national health service) during the Covid-19 crisis. Slides also provide links to related news articles (important for background information and also for demonstrating the layout and language features of articles).

This is a set of worksheets in a MS Excel workbook that deals with fractions.

- Sheet one: a set of pictures (pie charts) that shows fractions from halves to tenths

- Sheet two: equivalent fractions with two pie charts, learners can input fractions and see if they are equivalent by looking at the shape of the pie charts

- Sheet three: starting to look at fractions being equivalent to decimals with two pie charts one for fractions and one for decimals

How to format and plan a formal letter or email for English functional skills.

Budgeting Spreadsheet: Students enter amounts into a self calculating spreadsheet to work out a persons budget for the month.

This resource is best used around the topic of budgeting and bank accounts. I used it alongside the excellent Barclays Money Skills site.

Quick addition warm up exercise using one and two digit numbers.

An Excel worksheet with an explanatory introductory PPT (with answers).

Simulation of completing an online CV. Very easy to use, fill in the boxes and print after completion.

Simulations of email and online banking registration forms. Can be used in succession, as for the banking registration form you need an email address. When you press the “create account” button it will open the printing menu. Good luck!

Introduce the topic using the Smart Notebook activity.

8 identical pages, each with a blank number line, a movable arrow to show the position of the number to be rounded and a sentence at the bottom to state what is happening.

Learners can fill in the ends of the number line to see what values are relevant to the question i.e. rounding 23 to the nearest 10 would be either 20 or 30 as an answer. Then they can move the arrow to the position needed, 23, then see which value the number is closest to.

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

This spreadsheet generates numbers randomly to help with learning or practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, estimating, comparing number size…

You can project these onto a screen or have the students work with pen & paper in front of a computer, refreshing the numbers themselves.
