This lesson is part of a year-long programme to develop KS3 students' use of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. The programme has proved very successful, and students apply what they learn in these lessons throughout each week. \n\nThe lessons also include spelling lists of words students should know by the end of KS2.
An excellent Speaking and Listening and/or Writing exercise that inspires creativity. Its the year 2042 and planet earth has been invaded by a powerful alien force. You are a passenger on a cruise ship, and along with some other passengers vote not to return home. The captain of the ship takes you to uninhabited island. What do you do next? What decisions need to be made? How will you survive?
This web based resource supplies an interactive drag and drop lesson presentation that can be used to steer a class discussion about describing words for the Horror Genre. Discuss the suitability of the adjectives provided to describe Castle Dracula and suggest your own.
A leaf is adapted to absorb light in photosynthesis. Here are two activities to be used on an interactive white board or individual students computers. 1. Can you label the different parts on this cross section diagram of a leaf? 2. Complete the table by matching the parts of a leaf with its adaptation.
6th Grade ELA Common Core Posters- Emoji Print. Includes an individual poster for each standard as well as strand headings.
It is so important for students to see, read and become familiar with the standards they are learning. I display the standard we are working on each day on my white board. I print out all of the standards at the beginning of the year (and laminate them!). I then sort them by strand and hole punch each one. I put them on book rings so that I can easily post them on my board on a magnetic hook
'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest.
It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition.
It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions.
Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation.
Several verse examples are provided for clarity.
Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.
'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs.
I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching.
Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause.
Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
Connectives display posters, which I find incredibly useful for all year groups, especially during DIRT activities (I get the pupils to 'upgrade' their connectives). Common spelling error display also included in this pack. The third resource is a literacy map which I laminate and leave on the student's desks and I refer to this when we discuss writing up paragraphs etc.

Older students are able to use the workbook independently. Also suitable for adult projects and making changes to your life.
This workbook gives an opportunity to reflect on what's important in life and in relation to Literacy and Writing. There is ample space to think, log goals, timescales, actions. In particular, the positive self-reviewing section (supporting optimism) by collect evidence of success, is essential for success. Additionally, the resilience strategy and spaces for reflection can be used if needed! Fabulous feedback to date. Workshops available.
