Three Little Pigs - Media/English/Fairy Tales/Adaptations/Newspapers

Three Little Pigs - Media/English/Fairy Tales/Adaptations/Newspapers

Using The Three Little Pigs as inspiration for this Media bundle, you'll find all you need to cover key terms such as adaptations and stereotypes. Please allow 3-5 hours to cover all material attached. Included: x3 PPTS Embedded videos (links in notes); sample sentence starts, differentiated activities - must,could, should approach. Students will consider the changing nature of how we view and interact with news stories today. Lessons will encourage speaking and listening. Students will also work on their writing skills, with a particular focus on their functional writing skills. I usually follow these lessons up with a segment on Fake News and I'm currently working on developing a bundle for that topic.

Stone Soup

Stone Soup

Learn English conditionals with this modern update to an old folk tale found in many cultures. In this story, an unsuspecting tramp gets more than he bargained for when he enlists the help of an elderly widow in making his "stone soup". The story is brought to life with lively, authentic dialogue focused on English conditionals and lovingly rendered illustrations. This book is also available for Kindle and in paperback format from Amazon. Find out more at Britlish.com. Comics are a fun way to learn English in a similar way to playing a game. Highly visual, the pictures serve to provide clear context for the vocabulary and grammar that is presented in the characters' dialogues. As the pictures remove the need for huge amounts of text, the bite-sized texts are able to focus on the intended vocabulary and grammar. The dialogue uses authentic language, complete with colloquial expressions and an appropriate register. There is a crossword puzzle included to help learn and remember the vocabulary from the story, as well as a wordsearch puzzle. The puzzles can also be accessed in interactive form on the Britlish website. They can also be printed for use at home or in the classroom. In addition to the puzzles, teachers can also use the comic in the classroom for role-play purposes, writing assignments, and for describing the pictures, as well as for many other purposes.
