Christmas Literacy

Christmas Literacy

6 fun Christmas Editing Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Literacy / English Puzzles (and full solutions), originally designed for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and equivalents. Minimal preparation required (ideal for this busy time of year), these are perfect for practising a range of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) during December (and late November). There are 3 puzzles originally designed for Year 6 and 5 (P7 and P6) and 3 simpler ones originally designed for Year 3 and 4 (P4 and P5). Both sets could be used in the same class for differentiation if required. They could also be used for revision in early KS3. Versions are included with and without a festive background picture. All sentences are Christmas-themed. An engaging alternative to worksheets, these festive puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities for this special time of year. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a Christmas-related word is revealed after completing the editing work. Each puzzle contains 20 lines of text (or 15 in the simpler ones). Pupils circle any mistakes they spot. If there are 3 or more mistakes in a single line, they highlight the corresponding letter in the grid at the bottom of the page. At the end they rearrange the highlighted letters to reveal the Christmas word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups, with pupils supporting each other and pooling their editing skills. Pupils often forget or avoid re-reading their own work to check for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Some of the aspects of SPaG included: common spelling errors, full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas, colons, speech marks, proper nouns, missing words, repeated words, tenses, subordinate clauses and embedded clauses. (Not all concepts feature in the 3 simpler puzzles (Puzzles 4-6). What about this festive mental maths puzzle pack?

Biography - How to structure a biography paragraph - Anne Frank - paragraph party

Biography - How to structure a biography paragraph - Anne Frank - paragraph party

Working on biographies? Teach your class a simple structure for organising information within a paragraph. This activity supports both reading and writing skills. Assessment focus I can group information into paragraphs I can organise the sentences in my paragraph into a sensible order I have used this 'paragraph party' approach several times for information texts and persuasive texts, and it really helped children to improve how well their writing was organised. That's why I have developed a similar approach to use when tackling biographies. Children will learn a simple pattern and later on they can apply to their own writing. Using lots of constructive talk, children have to work together to organise different sections of Anne Frank's life. Children need to find the host of the party (the 'topic sentence') and throw out information not relevant (the 'uninvited guest'). Then they explore the subtle way information is ordered. Later on they can look at whole text structure too. Each paragraph follows the same pattern, and children can use this pattern themselves to support their writing.
