Kung Fu Panda 'Secrets of he Furious Five' Self-Awareness Worksheets

Kung Fu Panda 'Secrets of he Furious Five' Self-Awareness Worksheets

What are the fundamental qualities that students of Chinese martial arts are expected to cultivate? Patience, Discipline, Courage, Confidence & Compassion! Like the points on a circle, there is no ‘first’ or ‘last’, no ‘more important’ or ‘less important’ when it comes to these powerful human qualities. They are all equally special and can be cultivated simultaneously, every day. Take a hint from Kung Fu Panda (which is of course based on thousands of years of experience and wisdom accumulated by Chinese martial artists and health experts) and develop these admirable and constructive qualities in your daily life! Contents - 2 versions of a ‘self-awareness’ sheet, which may be printed multiple times and filled in, to note how you have shown or will show all five of the qualities in your daily life - 5 ‘self-awareness’ sheets focusing on one quality only - ‘summarise and explain’ sheets for each of the Furious Five characters, to fill in with your own summary of events in the animated film shorts ‘Secrets of the Furious Five’ - labels for each quality which may be cut out and glued to a separate page or notebook, if you would rather make your notes elsewhere (or to use as you see fit) - a full-page poster for each quality, to serve as a friendly reminder

Poem and Rhetorical Devices Analysis Worksheet (Advanced Level)

Poem and Rhetorical Devices Analysis Worksheet (Advanced Level)

This worksheet should be used as a practice learning tool after teaching how to analyze a poem, the purpose of figurative language, and be able to locate and explain the function of rhetorical devices. Students should understand paradox, anaphora, antithesis, euphemism ( advanced level), POV, purpose and audience. Learning strands:  Analysing Texts 1.6 analyse texts in terms of the information, ideas, issues, or themes they explore, examining how various aspects of the texts contribute to the presentation or development of these elements (e.g., determine whether repeated sounds, words, or phrases in a poem reinforce its theme; determine how a story might change if it were narrated by one of the other characters in the story; determine how altering the punctuation could affect the message of an advertisement)  Elements of Style 2.3 identify several different elements of style in texts and explain how they help communicate meaning and enhance the effectiveness of the text (e.g., evocative language may be used to create a particular mood in a novel; incongruous words and phrases may be used to create a humorous effect in a short story; a repeated phrase in a song lyric helps to emphasize the theme; the use of words with several connotations can add extra levels of meaning in a poem; alliteration in a magazine or online advertising slogan can help make readers remember the slogan – and the product) Teacher prompt: “What is the effect or mood created by this passage? What words contribute to that effect? Would the effect be enhanced or diminished if different words were used?”

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script Cast of 10 Duration: 5 - 10 minutes reading time (not including music suggestions) This play may be used as an assembly for performance, or a play or guided reading script within the classroom. Along with delivering the story of David and Goliath, there are brief notes at the end to facilitate further discussion - on the themes of bullying, self-belief and self-strength. There are numerous other scripts on these themes in the PSHE section of the website including one on bullying which could be combined with this script to produce a longer play. Sample Text Goliath: Well, let’s see if he can work the same magic (pauses) on the battlefield! David: Against you? I’m more than up for it! King Saul: But that’s insane! Servant: Yes, begging your pardon, but how can you possibly hope to win (pauses, pointing at Goliath) against that? David: (Shrugging his shoulders, casually) What’s to prove? He’s just (pauses) Servant: (Interrupting) Big? Philistine Soldier 1: (Clapping) Bravo! Philistine Soldier 2: (Clapping) So you noticed? David: Huh! Size isn’t everything! (Goliath strides over to David, towering above him) Goliath: Oh really? (David stands his ground, unflinching) David: Yes, really! You don’t frighten me, you great bully! There’s more to winning a battle than sheer brawn, you know. Narrator: No, I rather fear he doesn’t know. I’m not even sure he understands what you’re saying! Goliath: (Furiously) Understand what you’re saying? What’s to understand, that’s what I want to know! Narrator: Quite! My point exactly! (David starts to walk away) Goliath: Huh! I knew he wouldn’t stick around! A coward, like the rest of you! King Saul: Oh, don’t be so ridiculous! Look at you! All ready in your battle gear! Does my lad David look ready to you? Goliath: Well, now you come to mention it King Saul: So. If you don’t mind, we’ll just take a short time to get David into my armour and David: (Interrupting) Oh don’t worry! That won’t be necessary! I’m pretty much good to go! King Saul: But what about some protection? A body shield at least? David: No, no. That won’t be necessary, either. I know what I need and I’ll be back in a minute. (Exit David) Goliath: Bah! Just an excuse to do a runner! You wait! There’s no way that wee boy is coming back to take on me!
