Night Zookeeper Classroom is a new website designed for teachers that are looking to inspire and motivate their students using storytelling and technology in an incredibly straight-forward manner.
Night Zookeeper resources have been used by teachers to inspire children to produce their best writing. They have been shown to raise the level of engagement in even the most reluctant of writers.
In the Night Zookeeper Classroom, the magic of the Night Zookeeper story has been taken and a series of lessons to run alongside it have been designed. There are 50 lessons right now, with a further 50 promised very soon.
Each lesson includes:
– An extract from the Night Zookeeper story
– Reading comprehension questions
– Digital drawing missions
– Writing activity linked to the New National Curriculum
There are some really fun and creative ideas in here – each lesson plan has talk and writing activities as well as suggested follow up work and wider curriculum links. The digital drawing missions will run on any device and so are suitable for use on class laptops.
The site is a subscription service, and membership will give a site licence for the whole school. This includes 100 lesson plans and more than 100 different creative problem solving activities. An annual subscription costs £300 / $500
You can access the Night Zookeeper Classroom, and see a couple of free example activities at : classroom.nightzookeeper.com.
And do also check out the Night Zookeeper Story Pairs app, which I have written about previously.
