Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different shadows being shown in each of the photos. I have collected together some of my best teaching resources about shadows and I think they would make a lovely lesson. There is the game of guess the shadow, followed by reviewing the key words about shadows and a creative writing task to complete. In addition, I have added a teacher guide which explains how to complete another 31 different fun tasks using these resources. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Magnets are magic! A primary science CLIL / ESL lesson plan on magnetism

Magnets are magic! A primary science CLIL / ESL lesson plan on magnetism

Key information: • Teaching science in English at A1 to A2 level • 45-minute lesson • Student's handout + Teacher's notes • English language support for both teacher and students Rationale: In this lesson, learners read about magnets, steel and iron, then do an experiment to explore and verify basic scientific facts. Through predicting, experimenting, observing and stating observations, learners experience and develop understanding of scientific processes and methods while also expanding their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding. The lesson encourages learners to become interested in and curious about science concepts while developing their thinking and language skills. Content objectives: To experiment with and observe the force of a magnet on objects which do and don’t contain iron; to predict and confirm predictions about which objects a magnet will attract; to understand that magnets attract iron. Language objectives: To use simple present tense to express scientific facts; to use simple future tense to make predictions; to use 'contains'/'doesn’t contain' to describe the characteristics of an object. These lessons have been designed to support teachers’ and learners’ use of English in the following contexts: • bilingual education • Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) • English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) • Content-Based Instruction (CBI) • English as a Second Language (ESL) • English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

Newcomer ESL Science Self-Assessment

Newcomer ESL Science Self-Assessment

This self-assessment is designed for students new to English. It allows them to think about six general science concepts (earth science, life science, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and environmental science) and rate how they feel about their knowledge in each concept. This will help ELL and science teachers get an idea of where newcomer students view their strengths and weaknesses in science, as well as identify their science related interests.

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

SAVE 20% BY PURCHASING THE BUNDLE! 'What's The Weather?' bundle is an completely integrated unit for teaching the topic of weather. My aim was to make this unit as wide-ranging as possible to suit varied ability levels. The pack content should give teachers enough element of choice to suit students' needs.

Making observations about the weather and discussing climate are great ways to teach children about science, especially since weather is something children can easily relate to and understand. Whether it's clear and sunny or rainy and windy outside, weather and climate affect children's lives every day. It dictates our wardrobe, sometimes affects our moods. It can bring us together as a community. If students have an early curiosity in weather, not only could it help them in their Maths and Science studies in school, it may even inspire the next generation of forecasters or meteorologists! ******************************************** FILE 1: CONTENT • Cover • Weather and Climate Presentation • Weather Vocabulary Display • Weather Instruments Posters • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 2: CONTENT • Cover/Contents • Thinking Maps • Weather Discussion Cards • Weather Phenomenon Research • Weather Recording Sheets • Weather Experiments & Reports • Weather Forecasting • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 3: CONTENT The following activities use key weather vocabulary. • Cover/Contents LITERACY STATIONS • Compound Word Match • Syllable Sort • Parts of Speech Sort MATHS ACTIVITIES • Greater/Less Than Rainbows • Weather Patterning GAMES • Matching Games SIMPLE WORKSHEET ACTIVITIES, GAMES AND PUZZLES • Discussion Weather Wheel • Scrambled Weather Words • Word to Picture Match • Weather Words Missing Letters • Seasonal Weather Drawing • Alphabetical Order • Wordsearches x 2, plus keys • Weather Words Shapes • Weather Words Opposites • Favourite Weather • TOU/Credits TOTAL PAGE COUNT: 127 ******************************************** RELATED RESOURCES What's The Weather Part 1: Presentation and Display What's The Weather Part 2: Activities What's The Weather Part 3: Literacy and Maths Activities ******************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Bundles
