EAL New Arrivals: Scheme of Work and Resource Pack

EAL New Arrivals: Scheme of Work and Resource Pack

This book will serve as a short course for new EAL (English as an Additional Language) students who may have recently arrived in Primary or Secondary school and who may have limited or no English. Currently in Education, many schools have significant numbers of students arriving each year with limited English skills and therefore little no access to the school curriculum. Formal EAL departments and training in schools has slowly diminished in recent years and often there is no clear course or structure in how to ingratiate these students into the school and offer appropriate support. Teachers are often at a loss when it comes to providing work for these students and the students themselves can be very limited in their ability to progress. Very often there is a lack of specialist EAL teachers or support workers in schools and so this book would offer an easy to teach method for different members of staff in a school. This book could be used over a 6-7 week course, therefore could be ideal introduction for the EAL student’s first half term in a school. It will include weekly themes that mix the acquiring of English language grammar and vocabulary, improving reading, writing and oral skills and learning common and useful element of English to improve their daily life in school and in the community.

Family in English Game of Seven Families

Family in English Game of Seven Families

The object of the game is to collect a full family - 6 cards. The player with the most families at the end is the winner. Player 1 asks a player of his/her choice for a card belonging to a specific family. In order to make the request, the player must already have at least 1 card belonging to that family. “In the (Martin) family, I am looking for (specific card).” If that player has the card, he/she hands it over. Player 1 continues asking for cards until he/she does not get what is requested. Player 2 then takes his/her turn. Once a family is collected, it is laid on the table in front of that player.

Guide to completing IGCSE English as a Second Language (0510/0511) Exercise 6 - Letter/Email writing

This is a comprehensive PowerPoint that breaks down an exam question from 2016. It shows students exactly what they must do to achieve a high grade and dissects a sample answer, highlighting the areas that are key. I made this as I felt I did not have access to a resource of the same ilk and feel that it is something all IGCSE ESL students, teachers and tutors can benefit from. Included is the full PowerPoint presentation and a Word doc of the question and sample answer for student reference.An extension activity could see students highlighting and identifying the verb tense being used in each sentence of the sample answer.

TH Voiced (/ð/) Articulation Cards

TH Voiced (/ð/) Articulation Cards

A set of UK English picture cards containing initial, medial and final TH Voiced (/ð/) words for use in Speech Therapy. Unlike many similar sets and word lists available these cards use UK English words, supporting vocabulary development and proving useful for children with Word Finding as well as Articulation difficulties. The words vary in length allowing for differentiation depending on the level of individual children's mastery of the sound. Each picture card uses a photo to clearly demonstrate the word's meaning, requiring as little interpretation as possible to encourage the child to be able to access them as independently as possible. They can be used as flash cards, as word lists to send home as homework, or for games such as word fishing. The pack contains * 5 blue bordered TH Voiced (/ð/) word picture cards and 11 TH Voiced (/ð/) word cards

OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

A memory game is a funny way to learn vocabulary. School year is almost over in most of the countries. Have students review occupations while having fun, matching pictures with the correct words.Comments are appreciated. Playing the Game The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards. The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two Jacks then they take the two cards and start a stack. The player is awarded another turn for making a match and goes again. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn. The next player chooses their first card and turns it over. If it is a match for one of the cards the previous player turned over then they try to remember where that matching card was and turn it. If they are successful at making a match they place the cards in their stack and choose another card. If the first card turned over was not a match for one previously turned over the player selects another card in an attempt of making a pair. If they are unsuccessful in making a match they flip the cards back over and play is passed to the next player. A players turn is not over until they are unable to make a matching pair. The game continues in this fashion until all the cards are played.
