The Unexplained: The Sixth Sense, official trailer

The well-know movie raises the issue of life after death and communication with the deceased: the trailer introduces the main character, Cole, a psychic child. The worksheet is an exercise in oral comprehension and it can lead to a debate as to what students think about the topic.

Once students have completed the worksheet, the teacher may lead them into a debate: should KB have told her mother about what actually happened to her at school? If they had been Melanie, what would they have done (which could be an opportunity to introduce/brush up conditional 3)?

Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

I am a secondary teaching assistant and have recently been given a group of EAL students to work with. I have tried quite a few things so far with them, and have found philosophy to be something they particularly enjoy. As we are together for just one hour per week, I find this a useful way for them to engage with each other. Hope you you can make use of them.

Pancake Day: Shrove Tuesday

Pancake Day: Shrove Tuesday

This fun and engaging teaching resource is perfect for Pancake Day! An eye-catching presentation answers a series of questions, such as what Pancake Tuesday is and why we make pancakes on that day. The presentation continues with a pancake recipe, a closer look at pancake toppings, Pancake Day around the world (which could be researched further) and the tradition of pancake racing. The presentation has been saved as a show, so that nothing can be accidentally deleted. Some sections require clicking to progress the show - it is set this way so that the teacher can pause and discuss if required. A quick run through beforehand will highlight these areas. After the presentation and discussion, students can complete two literacy activities. A differentiated sequencing activity and an expository writing activity. A set of sequenced recipe cards has been included as a teaching tool. A bank of transition words has been included in the writing activity. ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover • Teacher Notes • Pancake Day Presentation (17 slides) • Set of sequenced recipe cards • Sequencing Activity: How to Make Pancakes • Instructional (how to) writing activity • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 37 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Literacy
