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.

I can structure a persuasive paragraph - persuasive writing

I can structure a persuasive paragraph - persuasive writing

*In this resource I have argued against space travel and computer games as I thought it was likely that most of my class would like to take the opposing view for their own writing, later on. A fully planned and resourced lesson, complete with differentiated activities and a model text. First, children learn the opening paragraph to the model text ‘Computer games are harmful to children’. This should be quick and easy to learn – add a few actions if you wish. Use the PowerPoint or a text map to support. Then, take a quick look at how the text has been changed to the subject of space travel. What has changed? What has stayed the same? Briefly explore the idea that, in persuasive writing, if you can write one opening paragraph, you can write hundreds. It is simply: • Introduce the subject of the debate • Introduce which side you are on • State that you have many strong arguments Next, move on to looking at the how the first argument is structured. Again, it follows a pattern: • Topic sentence – to introduce the key idea of this particular paragraph • Facts and opinions • A rhetorical question On a flip chart or screen, show how you can use this simple structure to write a paragraph against exploring space on the subject of safety. There is an example of how you could do this on slide 8. Now the children should be ready to try this structure themselves. During independent time they use the same structure to create their own persuasive paragraphs about space travel. After this they can organise persuasive paragraphs about anything they choose. I have had great success with this approach and so have my colleagues. I hope you find it useful too.
