Find Someone Who... - Starter activity for ESOL students

Find Someone Who... - Starter activity for ESOL students

This fun starter activity is designed for ESOL or entry level literacy students. Ideal for the beginning of term as a quick 'get to know you' activity. The worksheet included is ready to print, with clear instructions on the second page you'll be able to run with it straight away. Asking learners to find out interesting information about each other, it not only breaks the ice but enables learners to practise simple question forming as well as valuable speaking and listening practice. This is a resource I've used for years, it never fails to get learners chatting and enables them to learn whilst finding out about their peers.

Yoga English - Universal Poster Activities for the Mind and Body

Yoga English - Universal Poster Activities for the Mind and Body

Yoga English is pretty well exactly what it sounds like: yoga + English activities = a new literature experience!Included are 9 posters for you to put around your classroom, each with a different yoga pose and set of questions and thinking/discussion prompts (as well as a brief intro on using this resource). Meant to be used while studying literature (novels, plays, short stories, etc.), the questions are universal and character-centric... which means you can use them again and again. Hello, last-minute planning! Except, these resources will help you bring creativity, thoughtfulness, discussion, and rejuvenation to your class, so it's the best kind of last-minute planning.The types of prompts included will be especially useful and relevant if the characters in the literature you're studying are any of the following:- in complicated relationships- unstable- in want or need of something- changing OR resistant to change- poised and strong- power-hungry- sturdy and well-formed- flimsy and weak- in need of some introspection (who isn't!?)

Introduction to inferences (GCSE English Lang New Spec)

Introduction to inferences (GCSE English Lang New Spec)

This resource relates to new GCSE English Language spec A01, common across all specifications, and introducing inferences and "observations" - the difference between being about to identify a point in a text and being able to make inferences. This is useful for learners preparing for the GCSE, either before or during their GCSE years, and for those resitting their GCSE. This could also be adapted for functional skills.The resource includes: powerpoint slides, a 19th century text and a sorting activity.The idea of the resource is to show learners how they automatically make inferences by using an image - learners' responses can be recorded and separated into "what we see", "what is suggested/what we work out" before introducing the terms "inference" and "observation". These terms are then applied to a written text from the 19th century and learners will have statements they are to sort into "observations" and "inferences". They can also be stretched to identify a suitable quote to use for the inference.The final activity is to write a response to an exam style question (the question is based on AQA's interpretation) where learners will need to read a modern text and summarise experiences from different centuries. In this pack, there is no modern text included due to copyright - the only thing you'll need to do is find your own text about a local shopping centre or marketplace. Learners are also given the opportunity to review their work by considering if they have included key points.
