Unjumble sentences/poem/story in Irish- activity and assessment

Unjumble sentences/poem/story in Irish- activity and assessment

age 7+, 2nd class onwards This resource contains 39 pages consisting of four activities all relating to the topic Bia. Each activity is in a different colour font to make it easier to see which pages go together. The first 5 blue pages are simple sentences to unjumble. The next 13 black pages are a story. The next 12 pages are questions and answers about liking/not liking/loving/hating foods. The last 9 purple pages are a poem using the phrases I like/don't like and he/she likes/doesn't like. This resource can be printed out, laminated, cut up and used for group work. The vocabulary can be used in the initial part of the lesson and this can be used as the main part. Children have to place the words in the correct order. Weaker children could have the easier sentences while stronger children could be given the story or poem. Also with the story, the sentences could be handed out in order and children just have to sequence the story. To make it harder, cut up all of the words and children have to make the sentences and then order the story. This is a great activity for children who are not quick at writing. However you could have an extension activity where children write out some of their sentences.

BOUM! PowerPoint Game template - Make your own games!

BOUM! PowerPoint Game template - Make your own games!

This is a template - not a full game! You can view and download a FREE example of the game here for French grammar: https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/boum-imparfait-et-pass-compos-review-end-of-year-end-of-unit-game-11640689. Please click "open as read only" to play the game. With this template, you can make the questions exactly what you want them to be by editing the questions slide. I would advise against changing the order of the slides (e.g. moving the bombs around) as the game relies on the hyperlinks I have created. Please note that the currency is Euros because I teach French! However, you can change it to anything you want! All text is editable. MATERIALS NEEDED: Each team will need a small whiteboard, board marker and eraser (If those are not available, scrap paper does the job too!) HOW TO PLAY: This game can be played individually or in groups. Group games are more fun! To be more effective, avoid having groups of more than three students. 1. Teams first name themselves and take it in turns to choose a number. 2. Once a team has chosen a number and it is not a bomb, all teams attempt to write the verb. They must use the verb indicated on the slide in the correct tense / mood. 3. The team who chose the number has priority: they show their answer first. If their sentence is correct, they win the amount indicated on the slide. If it is not correct, the other teams show answer and they all have a chance to win half of the amount indicated on the slide. (Click the picture of the house in the bottom right hand corner to go back to the numbers grid.) 4. The teacher must keep a record of how much each team wins on the board. (I like to use fake money I printed and laminated and give it for each correct answer! The kids love it!) 5. If a team uncovers a bomb, they lose all their money. There are 6 bombs in total. 6. The team with the most money at the end of the game wins. You will notice that as students choose a number, it changes colors – this will allow you to track the numbers that have already been called.
