Puctuation treasure hunt challenge

Puctuation treasure hunt challenge

Students search around the classroom to find a set of definitions. They need to write down the definition and guess which piece of punctuation the definition refers to. Each piece of punctuation is located in an area of the classroom that will help students to work out the definition. An application/check understanding task is then used as a follow up. Teacher answers have also been included.

Go Synonyms Wordsearch Starter Activity English Vocabulary Words Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Go Synonyms Wordsearch Starter Activity English Vocabulary Words Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Go Synonyms'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

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.

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Building on the previous two lessons, lesson three aims to have students define and identify stereotypes. With this keyword in mind, students compose a scaffolded letter to an editor of a newspaper. I usually buy some newspapers the week of these lessons. Photocopying an article and a letter responding to these is a worthwhile activity in the lead up to this lesson. Students usually read the article/letter to the editor in groups. If these lessons have worked for you in the classroom, then please leave a review in the comments section below. It's always great to hear how a group progresses with these activities!

Speeches - L5 - Personal Elements - Anecdotes

Speeches - L5 - Personal Elements - Anecdotes

Allow 1-2 hours for this lesson. Students will watch 2 different videos. One from a famous writer, another from a past President. Students must consider the impact of personal elements within these speeches. Then, students will read a speech, aim to identify literary techniques, with a focus on personal elements. One of the slides also features a language focus to improve written analysis skills. Students should, by the end of the lesson, be able to evaluate the effectiveness of personal elements/anecdotes within speech writing. This lesson is completed differentiated. It's also ideal for use during inspections. If you enjoy this lesson, then why not download the others in this bundle?
