Kikori Weekly Planner ~ Tips and Tricks

Updated: Feb 16

Kikori's WP brings you a tip for each day of the week!

“It's still magic, even if you know how it works!" - Terry Pratchett

As teachers, it can be easy for us to fall into the pattern of doing what we’ve always done and what has always worked, but like our students, we should be committed to learning and trying new things too! Though it can be undoubtedly stressful, expanding your classroom repertoire can help you develop new teaching skills while adding more interest and excitement into student’s school days. Looking for a place to start? Check out the “Tips and Tricks” category on the Kikori app!

"Tips & Tricks" are short and easy-to-use teaching techniques that can be incorporated to add variety or substance. Because they’re both simple and applicable, they’re the best way to begin experimenting with new ways to teach the same lessons. Take a look at the activities below for a preview of which “Tips and Tricks” are our favorite, and browse through this week’s Weekly Planner Playlist for full descriptions of each of them and more bonus content!

Mindful Monday

Are you looking for a way to expand upon the meditation practices you use with your students?

Look no further than “Peace Breaths”, a series of breathing techniques that augment and vary guided relaxation. With many options to choose from, you’re sure to find the breathing style you need, whether you’re trying to calm an active class or energize a tired one!

Together Tuesday

“Roll The Mic” is an essential tool for any virtual educator’s toolbox. It makes the often arduous task of getting students to speak up and share during video conferences as easy as rolling dice!

Check it out now on the Kikori app for a full activity description.

Wellness Wednesday

One of the hardest parts of online learning for young children is getting them to stay seated for long periods of time.

Instead of fighting their desire to move around, use it to your advantage the next time you ask your students a question with “Full Body Multiple Choice”!

Thoughtful Thursday

Wondering what “Tips and Tricks” activity is a good fit for Thoughtful Thursday? “Fold Your Arms” is a simple exercise that fosters thinking and discussion about the role being uncomfortable plays in learning.

Perfect for introducing the idea of comfort zones to a new group or reminding an existing one of the importance of pushing themselves!

Fun Friday

A common but often overlooked task for teachers is dividing the class into pairs, so in the spirit of Fun Friday, why not do so in a creative and silly way?

“Sole Mates” makes finding a partner comfortable and engaging, so give it a try today!
