Wild Woods at Twilight - Imagination Trigger

Wild Woods at Twilight - Imagination Trigger

Woods are fascinating places, especially at twilight, when it starts to twitch with furtive activity and colours fade and blend mysteriously. Your children may spot an owl, a robin, a fox, a hedgehog, a rabbit and two squirrels amongst the moonlit branches of this wintry wood. The hand-drawn scene will inspire ideas and language for writing, also guiding artwork, promoting an appreciation of the natural world, celebrating leaf colour, illustrating the concepts of evening, night skies, autumn and winter, and providing discussion spurs for your class.

Fortnite (gaming) newspaper article. Reading and writing non-fiction.

Fortnite (gaming) newspaper article. Reading and writing non-fiction.

An engaging approach to reading and writing non-fiction. It uses an article on the video game Fortnite to enable students to recognise the features of a newspaper article, what makes them effective and write their own interesting and appropriate newspaper articles. In particular, students learn to identify the features of a newspaper article, discuss their purpose and create their own. There are easily enough resources here for 3 lessons on this topic. Uses an article on Frotnite as an engaging and interesting topic for students’ discussion. Over the course of their learning journey, students: Understand and categorise the different techniques used by newspapers; Identify the features of newspapers in a model example; Analyse the effect of techniques in newspapers upon the reader; Use techniques effectively in writing their own newspaper articles; Peer self assess each other’s newspaper article attempts.

PARCC Aligned Practice Testing (7th Grade) w/ Prove It 2.0 Skills (Full Keys Included!!)

PARCC Aligned Practice Testing (7th Grade) w/ Prove It 2.0 Skills (Full Keys Included!!)

Included is a PARCC -Aligned practice test including a fictional passage and constructed response writing activity involving a journal entry. The questions involve the following areas: vocabulary theme theme development context clues Two Part questions (Parts A and B) citing textual evidence characterization narrative text writing-journal entry What makes this activity so much more valuable is that is includes the Whole Brain strategy of Prove It 2.0 strategies. This technique encourages the students to indicate whether EACH ANSWER CHOICE is correct or incorrect based on the text. The students must write a response in their own words for all answer choices. This strategy allows the students to think about their way of thinking through verifying or justifying their answer choices with textual evidence. This technique has worked beautifully for my students and has been proven to improve standardized test scores. Educator TIP: It is even more beneficial for the students to talk about their answer choices with higher order thinking discussion stems: " I think that answer choice A is incorrect because, according to the text, ________________________________. " In essence, seeing, thinking, and speaking helps to bring about a critical thinking experience, that eventually, with practice, become an effective tool in comprehending complex text.

Last Day - Memories

Children in year 6 are often asked to write something for their final assembly. I have created two sheets. Sheet one should give them ideas about what to write. Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet.
