A basic notebook to be used as the starter to the literacy lesson.
I will be using this as a whole class to 1) Put the story in the correct order and 2) Model writing sentences describing each part of the story.
I hope it is of some use to someone out there!
Lesson plan based on the famous book. A fun session creating 'wild things' and using interesting adjectives to describe them. Pupils are also asked to write a short story, practising their writing skills.
Enjoyable session combining art, descriptions and story-telling. Examples of finished 'wild things' are also included. Please comment if you liked/used this resource!
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students. Designed to lead to a comparative essay on 'The Road' and 'The Handmaid's Tale' but easily adaptable for your choice of novels or to stand alone as a study of the four short stories included.
