Ideal for classroom use but works well in very small groups.
Role play with special instructions. Set of four different instructions to use per dialogue, but can be combined.
Needs some planning from the learners before.
I have used it for adult literacy as well as for ESOL learners.

<p>House details for Cinderella’s palace etc. These can be displayed in the role play corner and used as a stimulus for children’s own writing.</p><p>I’ve now made a Word version of this resource: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/L-6011109</p>
<p>House details for Cinderella’s palace etc. These can be displayed in the role play corner and used as a stimulus for children’s own writing. These are identical to the ones that I uploaded a couple of years ago. But i know that a lot of people have had problems opening the resources as they were made in an old version of Publisher. I’ve use a site recommended by another poster (sorry, can’t remember who - but I appreciate the recommendation) to convert them to Word. Hopefully that will sort out the problems.</p>
The handbook includes background information for teachers about common spelling patterns, useful strategies, including mnemonics, and spelling and phonic games. Many of the ideas resources have been posted elsewhere - acknowledged at end.
7 sets of cards in JP order. There are decodable words with matching pictures. If you cut them up and laminate them they would be suitable for independent work, for a small group working with an adult, or for your whole class phonics.
<p></p><p>I’ve pulled together various resources such as quick fire activities that I’d previously uploaded separately, and games and links suggested by other posters (notably bluerose) into 1 document.</p><p></p>
A fun revision game based on the television show The Million Pound Drop. This activity can be used for all ages and subjects by editing the questions and answers on the PowerPoint. Instructions on how to make the cash tokens is provided in the word document. This was a really fun quiz activity which would be excellent for an observation as it provided excellent opportunities to engage, differentiate and assess. This version is for English Language, but can be adapted for any subject or topic.
Maya Assembly or Class Play<br />
Cast of 30 (easily adjusted up or down)<br />
Duration: Around 20 minutes<br />
Self-important kings, moody gods, ...not to mention that chocoholic! Our narrator finds his/her work cut out as usual, keeping things moving along smoothly - within the normal time confines but this time working to a Maya calendar - just enough time to cover those 20 days - in words and numbers, Maya style of course!<br />
Set of Guided Reading scripts also available – 5 scripts, 6 speakers each.<br />
Part of large Ancient Civilizations collection written by Sue Russell available off TES and www.plays-r-ussell.com <br />
Sample Text:<br />
Lord Pacal: I am the great Lord Pacal! I ruled for 68 years, from A.D. 615 to 684.<br />
(Enter Child 8 holding up Classic Period banner)<br />
Child 8: This was at the beginning of the Classic Period – A.D. 600 to 900.<br />
Narrator: The Classic Period, you say? What was so classic about it?<br />
Child 8: This was when the Maya were at their most successful – their peak time, if you like.<br />
Narrator: So let’s hear about their achievements during that time.<br />
(Exit Child 8)<br />
Lord Pacal: How about we start with … me?<br />
Narrator: (Aside, sarcastically) Why didn’t I hear that coming?<br />
Lord Pacal: (Holding up pictures) Now. If you look very carefully you can see me, linking the realm of my ancestors to that of the gods.<br />
Narrator: Ah! I’ve heard about that sacred kingship!<br />
Lord Pacal: But that’s not all!<br />
Narrator: (Aside) I didn’t think it would be!<br />
Lord Pacal: I was also the guarantor of fertility, rain and crops – here, see on these pictures! And that’s not all!<br />
Narrator: (Sarcastically) Really? Now there’s a surprise!<br />
Lord Pacal: I was also a magnificent warrior!<br />
Narrator: (Sarcastically) Really?<br />
Lord Pacal: Oh, I know. Who’d have thought it! All this in just one life time!<br />
Narrator: Amazing!<br />
Lord Pacal: Course, I had to make sure people didn’t forget me.<br />
Narrator: As if!<br />
A game to improve communication skills.<br />
The teacher will split you into two teams. One person from the first team will be selected to sit in front of the whiteboard. They will not be able to see the screen. On the screen a word will pop up, along with an image and clue words. The objective is to get the person to guess the word correctly. Your team has 1 minute to help your team member guess the correct answer. However, you will not be able to say any of the words on the screen (including the title.) You will also not be allowed to do any actions, impressions or stand up...and no shouting. You are not allowed to say things like… “It starts with the letter A.”<br />
It is 3 points for a clean win (with no deductions.) Points will be deducted if team players say the words on the board.<br />
*Suitable for all ages and key stages.<br />
