Justin Bieber Comprehension Activities!

Justin Bieber Comprehension Activities!

I used these comprehension resources recently to engage a group of girls who were reluctant readers. The pack enables students to fulfil the requirements of the Key Stages 2 and 3 comprehension expectations within the new National Curriculum framework. It does so in a new and student-friendly way, by engaging students in texts related to someone whom they share an interest in. Whilst focussing on Justin Bieber, these resources provide a wide-range of differentiated and interesting resources for students to build their reading and comprehension skills. The pack includes resources such as a short Justin Bieber biography, a newspaper story about the positive aspects of his personality, and lyrics to the song 'Baby.' Each of these are differentiated for lower KS2, higher KS2, and KS3. Students understanding of these texts are gauged through comprehension questions aligned with the expectations of the new National Curriculum (again, these are differentiated by age.) The curriculum expectations are included in the pack, and are referenced in brackets after each question. This allows you to easily plot students' progress against individual strands. Some images are used, which are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide.

A short unit of writing inspired by an image from the Christmas Narrative 'Coming Home' by Michael Morpurgo (This years Waitrose Advert) featuring a Robin which migrates in search of food but faces dangers along the way. The unit of work uses the image to inspire children to learn about the migration of two species of migrating bird over the Winter period in Great Britain and understand their amazing journeys.

Writing KPIs Cover: Subordinating and Cordinationg conjunctions Writing Statements Writing Questions Writing a range of sentence types Selecting relevant content Possible futher tasks: create bird seed balls (following and writing instructions) to provide food for the migrating birds over the winter)

Pokemon Go reading cards containing different genres and authors to inspire children to read.

Pokemon Go reading cards containing different genres and authors to inspire children to read.

A collection or custom made pokemon cards containing the names of different genres and authors to inspire children to read and collect them all. The cards make a display and can be made into individual pokemon cards that the children can collect when they have read a certain book of a certain genre or by a certain author. I use them to inspire children to read by asking the children to collect as many cards as they can by reading different types of books and writing a short book review on that book. When I have check the book review they receive the corresponding card. This has been very successful and I have had just over 120 book reviews completed in the first half term.
