'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
This pack of themed resources (Toys and Christmas) is ideal for early writers. It concentrates on reading , ordering and writing sentences correctly with colourful pictures to encourage engagement. The 1st pair of presentations allow the teacher to take the learner through: • responding to a picture orally • reading key words that are not in the correct sentence order • orally sorting words into order to make sense • teacher modelling writing a complete sentence on whiteboard screen ( slides) • teacher modelling starting a sentence -capitals • teacher modelling ending a sentence- full stops, question marks & exclamation marks The 2nd set of presentations provide a series of active tasks and takes the learner through: • responding to a picture orally • reading key words that are jumbled • sorting into order to make sense • the learner cutting out picture and words • the learner ordering and sticking words to form sentences and adding accompanying pictures. These resources provide an important teaching opportunity for the teacher to model thoroughly - reading for meaning, basic sentence construction and simple punctuation. They crucially prepare the learners for the independent 'cut and stick' tasks and the active tasks engage the learners . These resources could also be used as meaningful tasks for small groups or individuals who require more support with basic writing. The slides can also be edited easily for other topics. I have included some thumbnail pictures to show the learners' activities. Many thanks for free use clip art provided by http://www.clipartlord.com/

This task is good for enabling students to answer 6 mark questions on both conduction and convection. The conduction task is fully differentiated. .

These 48 scenarios can be used during a formal drama lesson or a quick brain break which is essential for focus and learning. To make it easier for you to organize your students into groups, a number on the corner of each scenario card recommends how many should be in the group. Helpful hints on each scenario are included to help your students create quality performances. It is recommended to give the students at least 15 minutes to rehearse and then select all/some groups to perform.To encourage audience participation, allow your class to guess what they think the scenario was about. Also included is a black and white copy.
This is a classroom game to practise / revise the perfect tense and word order. Different shapes represent different elements in a sentence. This is particularly helpful for visual learners, but also a lot of fun for everyone else. Students have to work in groups and cut out all the shapes (see PP) first before they start to make sentences. Depending on the level of your students, you can practise the perfect tense with just 'haben' or with both 'haben' and 'sein'. More able students can practise the perfect tense as well as Time, Manner, Place and conjunctions (und, aber, denn, weil). Students can use the prepared 'shapes' and / or make their own (see extra slides). Students love it if you add an element of competition and maybe a prize for the group with the longest / most accurate / funniest sentence(s). Instructions are part of the PowerPoint. Feel free to adjust the slides according to your needs. Viel Spaß!
