It's Good To Be Me Leavers Assembly

It's Good To Be Me Leavers Assembly

It's Good To Be Me Leavers Assembly Class size - any Duration - open ended This leavers’ assembly can be tailored to any class or year group size; and likewise can be any length. I have provided a 'skeleton script' of around 5 minutes actual reading time but with numerous opportunities to add on e.g. in 'Wish' and 'Achievement' sections. There are also numerous songs/music which can be included or omitted accordingly. There is the additional fun 'option' of the schools staff 'joining in' at the end - but this is optional and can be left out. Sample Text: Child 1: What’s there to celebrate? Child 2: (Holding up Numeracy exercise book) Look at my scores in Maths. Five out of ten, six out of ten, three out of ten … Why do I bother? I’ll never get Maths! Child 3: Huh! Think that’s bad? You should see the marks I get in my spelling tests! You think you’ve got number blindness? (Child 2 nodding in agreement). Well, I’ve sure got a bad case of blindness when it comes to stringing more than two letters together! Child 4: But at least you don’t make everybody around you wish they were deaf! (Starts singing totally off key/out of tune ‘Do Ray Me Far So La Tea Doe’ set of scales. Whole cast clasps their hands over their ears). See what I mean? Teacher: (Uncovering ears) Hey? What? Oh, you mean your slight lack of musicality? Well, maybe there is just a little room for improvement. Child 5: (Holding up bits of woodwork, taped together but falling apart) And what about my latest Design Technology ‘project’? I don’t think I’ll be getting the call to build the next Olympic stadium! Teacher: (Stroking chin, reflectively) Hmm. Maybe not. Child 6: (Holding up ‘art work’ – black dot in middle of yellow paint) And I don’t suppose I’ll be in the Tate Gallery any time soon! Teacher: Ooh. I wouldn’t bank on it – have you been recently? ‘Anything goes’ there! I think your work would fit in perfectly! Child 7: (Breathlessly) But what about me? I try every year to run that one minute mile – but have I got beyond one hundred metres yet? (Starts coughing and clutching his side) Not a chance! Teacher: Enough! Enough! What is wrong with you guys?

ESL EAL, physical description, Verb to have, Unit2/Lesson2, (Lesson + Exercices) No Prep

Teaching beginners in English is great fun but there is so much content to teach that we are not always clear where to start. How about having the context, the vocabulary and the grammar in just one place with explanations, exercises and feedback? This flexible resource will help you teach young adults and adults about family, physical description (face and shape) and a grammar point about the verb HAVE. This resource is aimed at helping teachers to complement their textbook or to give enough material for those who are not lucky enough to have access to ESL textbooks/material. The resource contains a powerpoint with 31 slides with clear explanations at the bottom of each one of them to give you a step-by-step explanation about the progression of the lesson. The exercises are corrected to save you time! The resource also contains an activity booklet for students with 12 pages so that they keep a record of their learning. The approach is communicative with 2 listening activities and multiple opportunities for speaking to allow students to develop their speaking skills but it also contains a grammar point and interactive reading activities reinforced by exercises to consolidate their grammatical skills and writing skills. You will find different types of activities to allow a greater differentiation in your class: - A recap about personality adjectives and family members with a picture to label and a reading as a starter - A listening/reading with a matching up - Classification activities for adjectives - An introduction to descriptive elements of the face (eyes, hair) - A grammar point with the verb HAVE with examples - Exercises (matching up Q/A, filling gap) - Introduction to description elements of shape - A listening activity about a movie review - Interactive reading activities with a guessing game description - 2 writing activities - a word search as plenary - Review of objectives I suggest you use this resource after the ESL Unit 2 lesson 1 to help students structure their knowledge but you can easily use this resource on its own!
