High Frequency Words Bookmarks.

High Frequency Words Bookmarks.

I created these bookmarks to laminate and have in my children’s English books as they struggle to spell these words. By seeing them spelt correctly so often, they got better at spelling them themselves. Easy to edit also.

This resource is designed to be used during Reading Workshop and is to be used with The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. **ABOUT THE NOVEL: **Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. **ABOUT THE RESOURCE: **This pack includes: Background information on the novel (about police shootings), Chapter Summaries, Comprehension Questions, Digging Deeper Opportunities (includes character studies and plot studies), Creative Writing Tasks, and Non-Fiction Tasks related to content of the novel (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Tupac Shakur, Basketball, Jordans, Malcolm X, Black Panthers, Huey Newton, Dr Martin Luther King, Emmett Till, Black Lives Matter, Nat Turner).

Literature Paper 1 Revision Bundle: Prepare your students for 22nd May 2018 and save 20%!

The three month countdown to Literature Paper 1 is upon us! It’s time to help students refresh and revise which is why I’ve decided to create this bundle including one of my Macbeth lessons and one of my Jekyll and Hyde lessons, both of which focus on helping students plan effectively to tackle the Paper 1 extract questions. Also included is a Macbeth revision guide designed to help students know what and how to revise the Shakespeare section of the exam, which many students find to be the trickiest across the two Literature papers.
