PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 1-20 CHALLENGE CARDS

PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 1-20 CHALLENGE CARDS

These PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 0-20 CHALLENGE CARDS are perfect for young learners of LATIN, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of LATIN numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling in LATIN in general, and certainly in LATIN numbers in particular. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Numbers 0-20, but also as an all-year-round starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as the goal is not simply to learn how to count in LATIN, but also to enjoy working with LATIN, and to feel confident about doing so. The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! I’ve used English language mathematical symbols because learners are familiar with these, and are able to access and engage with the questions straightaway. The resource comprises the following non-editable files in a zipped format: Set of 36 question cards, 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace when they have answered the question. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! Colour & B&W answer recording sheet - colour & B&W background answer key, laminate for longevity - colour & BW background - one answer key for each small group is sufficient. 4 question cards template for students to apply their knowledge practically, and to create questions for each other - this is a really challenging and popular activity! Number reference sheet which students really useful as a learning support resource - it’s great as a year-round resource too, which they can put into their learning files/folders to call upon whenever they need it! Colour & B&W background. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. GRATIA PLENA!

Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History is a fun topic that brings Ancient and Medieval Civilizations to life. Class research the way that Medicine was practiced in the Ancient World before playing the game. The rules that are included are easy to adapt. Lots of classes like to add questions, alter the rules to make it their own etc. Medicine and it’s history are huge topics so extending the activity is easy to achieve through out of class work. This game has been used for 18 years now and I have found it to really engage learners.
