Inspiring posters

I believe every teacher could use these posters as a display in their classrooms (or even staff rooms) these days. I hope they encourage students to ask questions and create positive conversations.

Ringo Starr Wordsearch Musician Beatles Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Ringo Starr Wordsearch Musician Beatles Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Ringo Starr'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
