Persuasive language sorting/matching task

Persuasive language sorting/matching task

Designed for GCSE English Language groups, this is a useful plenary task, or revision/recap task at the start of a session. It comprises tiles divided into 3 categories: persuasive technique, example and why it is effective. Print, laminate if you wish, and cut out tiles. You could add images as well. Mix them up and ask students in pairs or groups to sort out and match up the tiles . My students in years 10-11,post-16 and adult education always enjoy this task, and it promotes discussion and peer learning.

Use a hyphen to create a compound adjective -  fun dice game: 'Creepy compound adjective creator'

Use a hyphen to create a compound adjective - fun dice game: 'Creepy compound adjective creator'

Assessment focus I can use a hyphen to combine words and create compound adjectives. Explanation Children need to understand how hyphens can be used to avoid ambiguity (e.g. man eating shark versus man-eating shark, or recover versus re-cover). Also, an understanding of hyphens can add descriptive depth to noun phrases (e.g. the creature) when they are used to form compound adjectives (the ferocious-looking creature). In the compound adjective ‘ferocious-looking’, the hyphen shows that the two component words have a combined meaning. Aim: using the ‘dice guide’, roll to create six compound adjectives with hyphens that you could use before a noun (e.g. muddle-headed monster). Write definitions for your compound adjectives on your ‘game card’. Keep unusual or ridiculous combinations too! Have fun playing with words!

Set of Six Sentence Writing Frames For The Correct Use of 'a' or 'an'

This resource contains a set of six writing frames to reinforce the correct use of the article/determiner 'a' or 'an' before a word. It also contains a sentence writing sheet for the construction of sentences. In addition to helping pupils to choose the correct article 'a' or 'an', it is a particularly useful resource for students who struggle to master the basics of writing. It provides a framework and scaffolding for pupils to achieve some success in creating sentences independently. Writing sentences and reading them back helps pupils to embed and consolidate high-frequency words which they will then be able to use freely in their writing. It is particularly appropriate for those SEN students. who find reading and writing challenging. The support of the frame makes sentence writing accessible and gives pupils a feeling of confidence - that they can do it! Often the key to success in getting pupils to write is giving them self-confidence. I have used these frames successfully over many years to get older SEN students motivated to read and write independently. Can be laminated and used time and time again.

Building up/scaffolding writing. Modelling Creative writing  Key Stage 2 Year 3 Year 4 grammar.

Building up/scaffolding writing. Modelling Creative writing Key Stage 2 Year 3 Year 4 grammar.

Hi, This resource is great for whole lessons. You can model writing a sustained piece and structure how to add depth and creativity to a paragraph/short/long piece of writing. I've played around with how I use this presentation, here are some suggestions, and if you find better ways then please share your good practice. 1. Print slides and allow children to use as prompts for writing about a stimulus. 2. Show children stimulus and then do some talk for writing, than ask them to write sentence/paragraph 1 and then share with class. Repeat process for all 6 sentence types. 3. Print the slides and cut the strips up. Allow children to mix and match to create different structures. I really hope that this resource is useful. Many thanks

expanded noun phrases, dice game, adjectives, preposition phrases, rich vocabulary

expanded noun phrases, dice game, adjectives, preposition phrases, rich vocabulary

There are lots of resources already available for expanded noun phrases, but none that really challenge to children to develop their vocabulary and make really adventurous and precise choices. This dice game is fully differentiated into three versions. In its simplest form, children add adjectives to nouns. In its most challenging form, children may have to add two compound adjectives and a preposition phrase. It all depends on the roll of a dice. Of course, teachers that love using my games will have guessed that already!
