English CPT Full Plan: Creating a Children's Book!

English CPT Full Plan: Creating a Children's Book!

This creative CPT plan includes instructions, mind maps, customized rubric, and samples of previous Work. Students are asked to create a 10 page children's book based on the short story elements they learned throughout the semester. This is an opportunity to assess different writing, reading, comprehension, and literacy skills… Students are asked to hand in a hardcopy, as well as present the book to reading buddies ( students of a younger age. This can be arranged by taking a class to a feeder school nearby to present their books]. This interactive activity allows teachers to view the student progress not only in relation to reading and writing, but also in the understanding of audience and purpose – this is why I thought reading to younger kids is a great observation opportunity for teachers to test how engaging their reading [tone, diction] and stories really are in practicality and with real life children. This activity is assessed through all learning categories (K, T,C, A) and the following learning specific strands: Listening to Understand 1.1 Purpose 1.5 Demonstrating Understanding of Content 1.7 Extending Understanding of Texts Speaking to Communicate 2.1 Purpose 2.2 Interpersonal Speaking Strategies 2.3 Clarity and Coherence 2.4 Diction and Devices 2.5 Vocal Strategies 2.6 Non-Verbal Cues 2.7Audio-Visual Aids 3.

The Witches' Spell by William Shakespeare

The Witches' Spell by William Shakespeare

Here are two lesson plans and the printable resources that you'll need for sessions brave Key Stage 1 or 2 children and their teachers. These lessons introduce the famous 'Double, double, toil and trouble...' verses from the play, Macbeth, said by the witches as they create a spell and is a great way to bring children to the Bard for the first time. Children get to act out the spell and build their own verses, using key vocabulary, and rhythm and rhyme. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and measurement activities etc. Creating a musical scene based on the spell, for a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production could be a next step, depending on the ability of your pupils. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities (reciting it, not, you know, heating up a cauldron or anything - Elf and Safety and all that). To hear a FREE recording of the poem, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/ If you like my resources, I'd be really grateful for a review and some stars. If you don't like them, ask your loved ones to stock up on flies for your breakfast x
