10 English Vocabulary Building Starter Games

10 English Vocabulary Building Starter Games

A range of games and activities to make students work on their vocabulary. These work fantastically with any group from EAL KS3 to KS5. They can all be done independently, in pairs or in teams and most have a competitive element. I use these as starters in English lessons, but my school used to have a Literacy Form Time every Monday when we would play one of these. Most don't require any printing but can be adapted into a more physical resource if this suits your group.These always make fun and engaging links into creative writing lessons or literacy lessons. My students love them! I even caught some of my year 7s playing the Alphabet Game at lunch! I hope your students enjoy them just as much.

Emergent writers love lifting the words off to rearrange them and find the hidden sentence. With an engaging picture clue and title on each board, this resource suits a range of learning styles. Pupils rearrange their words on the board before writing the sentence out themselves on the lines provided, using a dry-wipe pen. They could then copy the sentence into their jotter if required.See the individual resources for more information and instructions. Thank you for your interest. If you decide to buy them I hope your pupils have a lot of fun using them.

Structuring introductions - Julius Caesar

Structuring introductions - Julius Caesar

Targeted at mixed ability KS3 pupils, this colour differentiated model answer demonstrates the elements that constitute a well-developed introduction for reading assessments. The sentences are differentiated by colour and pupils are encouraged to identify the purpose of each sentence from the checklist. In matching the sentence to its purpose (e.g. link to context), pupils begin to identify the elements of effective introductions and become more critical as they write their own introduction.

Teaching year 1/2 about the use of possessive apostrophe and creating a character

Teaching year 1/2 about the use of possessive apostrophe and creating a character

A lesson used to introduce my year 1 class to the possessive apostrophe (they have already seen apostrophes in contractions) when creating their own fairy tale character ready for a story they are going to write. The pack includes a powerpoint which introduces the children to the possessive apostrophe and then gets them to apply what they have learnt by asking them to choose the correct use of the possessive apostrophe. I then asked the children to create their own fairy tale character using the character description frame. Afterwards we wrote about our character using imaginative description and using the possessive apostrophe. The pack also contains a blooms taxonomy higher level sticker for your early finishers and a writing frame for LA children to use when describing their character.
