I have compiled together a bank of homework menus for texts that are often studied. This means in one purchase you will get homework menus for:
Romeo and Juliet
A Christmas Carol
The Boy in the Striped Pyjama's
Lord of the Flies
The Creative Writing homework menu
Each of these homework menu's has 25 separate homework tasks that can be completed to assist students with the understanding of the text, and they can each be easily adapted to be easily set cover work for classes.
To celebrate this set of resources achieving over 1000 paid downloads I have bundled them together for a big saving.
Featuring lesson plans, worksheets, display material and some truly unique ideas I am sure you will not be disappointed!
A display showing various people in the public eye caught reading, before having 12+ celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Daniel Radcliffe and Rachel McAdams talk about their favourite books. A nice display to encourage students to read, and more importantly- not be ashamed or embarrassed about reading.
Whilst reading the BFG, I wanted to teach the children about play scripts so I rewrote part of Chapter 13 as a script. The children then had chance to read from the script, acting out different roles. They were also able to discuss and identify features of a play script using this resource. There are two versions of the script; one is aimed at the lower ability children and the language used has been simplified (no "BFG speak").
The other two worksheets in this pack are to help the children to write their own BFG play script. Again, the two worksheets are slightly different; one has the pictures of the characters whereas the other does not.
I hope this can be a useful resource.
