The Valentine's Day edition of  YOU DON'T SAY!

The Valentine's Day edition of YOU DON'T SAY!

YOU DON’T SAY! is a themed variation of Taboo® that can be played in two very different ways. If your students are confident and articulate, they can play YOU DON’T SAY! following traditional Taboo® rules. If, however, you have students who are uncomfortable giving clues, turn the rules upside down. Tell them to use some or all of the words beneath the pink and white banner in their descriptions! This topsy-turvy approach encourages and empowers everyone to participate. You won’t believe what a positive game-changer it is.This file includes 40 “Valentine” cards about friendship, relationships and love. I’ve also appended a template for students to make their own YOU DON’T SAY! deck.

50 Facts about Hair - Lessons in Digital Literacy

50 Facts about Hair - Lessons in Digital Literacy

In the lesson students will learn some amazing facts about hair and the historical significance it has had in different cultures around the world. They will also learn to challenge and question the accuracy of information they find online.This lesson contains seven tasks: A discussion task which gets students thinking around the topic. A reading task which develops students’ abilities to use text to check information. A reading task which encourages students to develop deeper comprehension. A discussion task which gives students the opportunity to formulate a personal response to the information they have studied. An online research task which guides students through the process of researching and corroborating the credibility of online information. An online research task which guides students through the process of creating research and disseminating the results. A research task which develops students’ abilities to use social media to carry out research.The materials in this plan can be used in different ways. The first four tasks can be used independently as a simple reading and discussion class.The last three tasks are research tasks. These are the tasks that push students to develop their digital literacies most. It’s not necessary to use all the tasks. These tasks are likely to take longer and could be set as homework, independent study tasks or as projects and followed up in the classroom. The research tasks will all require internet access.

Cyber Bullying Awareness: Posters, Task Cards & Activities

Cyber Bullying Awareness: Posters, Task Cards & Activities

Do you want to educate your students about the dangers of Cyber Bullying? It is a rising problem among teenagers and young people in this age of social media, so this resource will offer your students the opportunity to consider the dangers and effects of cyber bullying by encouraging them to discuss and reflect on realistic scenarios.I have used this resource on different groups of students from year 7-10 and it has proven effective for all ages. It's interesting that each age group has brought out its own conversations from this resource. I find it shocking how many young people (especially those below the required age of 13 to even have a social media account) are suffering from cyber bullying online and don't yet have the skills to handle it. This resource has made a significant difference to my students and I can only hope they go on to spread the word to others!I hope that my resources save you hours and hours of time: something we always sacrifice so much of as teachers. ❤*********************************************************************************************************• If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources! If you have any questions about this resource or anything else, you can email me at TeachersResourceForce@yahoo.com.• Be the first to know when I upload new resources, discounts and freebies by following my page!

Tenses re-cap, past present and future using celebrity profiles as examples good for ESOL learners

Tenses re-cap, past present and future using celebrity profiles as examples good for ESOL learners

1) Starter task: a grid of verbs requiring students to convert them into the past tense, some regular and some irregular. This task can be done individually or in pairs/teams with a competitive element.2)This task works really well of ESOL learners/classes as it is a fun way to practice using the three different tenses. I usually introduce the celebrity profiles individually, there is one written in each specific tense. Students can read through the passage together or alone, taking note of the prominent tense. They then use this as an example to produce their own profile in the specific tense. I also like to provide students with coloured paper, different pictures and ways to decorate their pieces of work.
