Astronaut Jim - reading comprehension with True / False questions and creative activity

Astronaut Jim - reading comprehension with True / False questions and creative activity

This activity is for young ESL learners (aged 7 - 14). It is useful due to the fact that it deals with space vocabulary, repeats new words several times in the text to ensure that the words stick and has pictures that help children follow what is happening in the story. For stronger students, they will not need the pictures, but weaker students can use this to their advantage. The True / False questions aid their reading comprehension. You can also monitor their pronunciation as you can ask them to read out loud. Learning Objectives: To use the space vocabulary studied. To understand how an English story is set out on the page. To practise the present simple tense. To apply preexisting vocabulary to a new theme (colours to space for example) How I used this worksheet/recommended: Teach vocabulary to do with space (I used flashcards for this). Ask students what life is like on a different planet (elicit the words scary, exciting, fun etc.) Tell students that we are going to read a story about aliens. Children read out loud in turns. Children do the True/False by themselves. Correct as a class. Children ‘wind down’ by designing their own planet with aliens and labelling it. (Practises writing skills) This is an excellent activity which was received well by all my students, ranging from 7 to 12.

Problem solving pictures

Problem solving pictures

A simple resource I created for ESL children. Children need to cut and paste the solution to the problem. All in picture format. Children can then talk through the pictures. I made this because all examples I found were in written format and beyond the level of my children.
