Writing Places Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Language

Writing Places Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Language

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Writing Places’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018 is a crossword based on the events of last week’s news. It’s a simple PDF sop it downloads quickly, is easy to print, and can be stored on a USB drive for use later. (There are 3 bonus crosswords - Egypt, China, and Japan, in the PDF and all of the answers are included too.) Of course, this activity is less about the events around the world and more about why and the discussions and debates that come from asking why. Why have so many orangutans died in the past 10 years? Why would people in Japan pay to go on a virtual-reality trip to Paris? Why are suicide bombers in Nigeria killing people in a fish market? And what’s so important about discovering new antibiotics? What did happen in the world in the last week? Australia’s PM and Deputy PM had a spat. Poland’s PM got a telling off. South Africa’s president resigned. And The Netherlands’ foreign minister resigned too. And so did Ethiopia’s PM. A plane crashed in Iran and a helicopter crashed in Mexico. There was an earthquake in Mexico and one in England and wales too. An Iranian wrestler threw a match so that he’d not have to wrestle against an Israeli. In India a woman pretended to be a man and duped two women into paying to marry him. And an Indian tycoon is on the run having duped a bank out of about $1.8 BILLION!! US scientists discovered a whole new family of antibiotics while Canadian scientists discovered a Picasso painting was a painting on top of another painting.

I also created on the web my own word searches relating to the lesson. Type in google free word search and I recommend the word search generator, so simple to differentiate. I could not add my starter games (sorry) they are off Twinkl. The ideas are there, and games such as i went to the shop and bought… so simple yet engaging and fun, found interviews questions also to be fun, just write prompt cards. All planning and worksheets are easy to adapt, personalise and make it your own in seconds. I hope this helps save teachers time.

Literacy Nursery Rhymes Comprehension for SEN, Early Years, Primary, Reception, Preschoolers

6 Nursery Rhymes for Comprehension- Humpty Dumpty, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hey Diddle Diddle, Itsy-bitsy Spider, The Grand Old Duke of York and Row Row Row Your Boat. Use the ‘storyboard’ worksheets to say the nursery rhyme, encouraging students to repeat it after you, see if they can recite it back to you after hearing it a couple of times (often students help each other out, seeing who can say it loudest).

There are them 18 worksheets for comprehension 6 for lower abilities where they need to circle/point/say the correct answer from a choice of 3. 6 for middle abilities where they can copy the correct answer after choosing from a choice of 3. 6 for higher abilities where they should be encouraged to answer questions in full sentences. Extension work- get students to ask/ write other questions about the nursery rhyme. See if they can draw their own pictures. See if they can create or recite their own nursery rhyme and illustrate it in 4 pictures.
