Silly Song Splat Game

Silly Song Splat Game

I am having to teach Summer School in a British International School in Spain. So, I am trying to reinforce English through song. I put together a group of some of my favorite silly songs when I was growing up. Although, I did find one or two new one's that tickled my fancy! I have a mixed group of year 3, year 6 and year 8, so I am trying to do something that spans the year groups. I have been teaching the kids these songs this week and I though it would be fun to reinforce the songs through a game of Splat! There are three rounds. 1. Rhymes 2. Questions about the songs 3. Homophones. All you need is some colourful fly swatters or hands, and hey- presto!

Differentiated Christmas Comprehension for Song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' by Wizzard

Differentiated Christmas Comprehension for Song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' by Wizzard

This is a comprehension to use in English to jazz up your lessons when approaching Christmas. I would recommend it for (a high) year 2 and higher. It is based on the song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' by Wizzard which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx4Cyhf_neU There are four differentiated sheets with the lyrics of the songs and questions underneath. -Extended level: Retrieval and higher order thinking questions (Why, What does it mean..., Which word tells you that...) - Core: Focused more on simple retrieval from the text. - Lower Core/Nurture: Simple retrieval from the text but scaffolded multiple choice for half of the questions. - Nurture, SEN, EAL: Using the song and text children write words to match picture (vocab), find adjectives used to describe things and draw scenes from the song/label them.
