Money Trees and British Traditions

Money Trees and British Traditions

For hundreds of years, all across Britain, people have traditionally added coins to certain trees, in the belief that the tree spirits of the forest would bring them good luck. But be sure to never remove any coin from a tree, because this will bring a curse upon you!! I will be putting together this collection of photos as I encounter money trees on my row around the coast of Great Britain. But one of the best places to find such a tree, is on the Coffin Route between Rydal Water and the village of Grasmere in the Lake District. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com). Check out my other resources at my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/sarah277 Let me know if you have any resource requests and I will tailor make a resource for you.

Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught.

Trees Literature & Composition

Trees Literature & Composition

Here are six pieces of writing about Trees, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Topics include: two contrasting poems about well-loved trees, a description of the beauty of the fallen leaves of beech trees, a first-hand account of traipsing through a tropical forest, a portion of the oldest known poem about Robin Hood in which he happily returns to the ‘grene wode’, a comparison of Pine and Fir trees, and a renowned Japanese fairy tale about the sound of the wind in the trees. Writing assignments vary – from describing a special moment linked to a tree to contemplating the beauty of trees’ levas in a descriptive paragraph, to writing in Middle English (or translating a bit of Middle English into today’s English) to writing a short story that includes a character who uses some part of a tree for clothing. An image of two Pine Trees (Anonymous) is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook. Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read and study different types of literature in small quantities. For example, instead of an entire novel or scholarly work, a small sample of each (which can stand on its own) will be presented. This way, the intermediate student has an opportunity to stretch their reading abilities without being discouraged. Each book contains six different writing samples that share a common theme. The writing assignments vary in length and are intended to inspire the student to try writing in different forms and styles.
