A complete unit of work on Creative Writing KS3/KS4

A complete unit of work on Creative Writing KS3/KS4

This resource includes tasks on building and using different sentence structures, how to use more ambitious punctuation, vocabulary choices, writing devices: figurative language, opening sentences, show don't tell and the wwwww method of writing construction plus some highly engaging tasks based on the mysterious images left by Harris Burdick. My students loved this unit of work and have continued to produce high quality pieces of writing. My other resource on David Didau's slow writing would work really well as a follow up to this unit.

Prefix, Suffix, and Base Words PowerPoint

Prefix, Suffix, and Base Words PowerPoint

Animated & illustrated PowerPoint introduction to prefixes and suffixes and how they change the meaning of (base) words.Most common prefixes and suffixes covered.Each prefix or suffix is presented with 10+ logical examples in an engaging style. Think-pair-share activities for each prefix or suffix.Slide Order:1) Review of base words quickly covered with an identify the base word activity.2) Explanation and examples of common prefixes: 're', 'un', 'mis', 'pre', and 'dis'.3) Each prefix then followed with a think-pair-share activity.4) 20+ examples of words with the prefix then shown for students to self check against.5) Explanation and examples of common suffixes: '-ful', '-less', 'ly', 'er', 'est' 6) Each suffix followed with a think-pair-share activity7) 20+ Examples of words with the suffix.Quite a long slide show if all done at once (whole lesson perhaps). Could be used to introduce/review just prefixes or suffixes in one lesson by showing only 1 half of the presentation. Some slides could also be hidden. Other than a brief explanation and examples for each prefix or suffix, I've tried to keep it quite straight forward so that their isn't too much lecturing or reading required. Recommend students use mini-whiteboards for the think-pair-shares or list on paper the examples pairs or small groups can come up with.Been designed with ESL grade 3, 4 and 5 students as the target pupils, so repetitive language used with vocabulary building as a desired outcome.

Learning English The Fun Way! - Bundle

Learning English The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning English as a second language (ESL)? Are you looking for a fun way to learn English as a second language? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in English as a second language. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into English as a second language. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!
