Form Filling Simple Exercises

Form Filling Simple Exercises

The resource contains 3 forms ( 1 form has a scenario to give the students all the data they need) and an assessment sheet. I’ve created this resource to help my students understand how to complete a form at a very basic level. I’ve attached the PDF and the Publisher file in which it was created so you can modify the content if needed. Enjoy!

Crime and Punishment - by Fyodor Dostoevsky - GCSE Reading Comprehension

Crime and Punishment - by Fyodor Dostoevsky - GCSE Reading Comprehension

This Reading Comprehension worksheet is suitable for upper intermediate to proficient ESL learners. The text gives a summary of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel “Crime and Punishment” that explores the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in Saint Petersburg who formulates a plan to kill an old pawnbroker. After carefully reading the summary of the novel, students are required to complete some comprehension exercises including: questions, True or False and a character match exercise. The vocabulary used in the text is rather advanced and can also be used for IGSCE, TOEFL or IELTS vocabulary building purposes. The handout can be completed in class or assigned for homework. A full answer key is included.

Dictado / Dictation Planner Templates - Bilingual

Dictado / Dictation Planner Templates - Bilingual

These are templates to use for a weekly dictado / dictation for bilingual classrooms that follow dual language / dual immersion formats. This closely follows the Biliteracy Squared format from Kathy Escamilla. Students do the dictado 3-5 times in the week. Space is provided above each line for students to write their corrections during the teacher talk-through. Day 1: Teacher reads the dictado and students write what they hear. Teacher then talks through correct writing of the dictado as students write corrections above the lines. Day 2 (optional): Students take turns giving the dictado to their partners. Day 3: Repeat Day 1 Day 4 (optional): Repeat Days 2 Day 5: Teacher gives dictado and collects final dictados to grade. The templates are provided in English and Spanish on different sheets. There are some pages with less lines for the lower grades and others with more lines for the upper grades. I created this this year for my 1st grade dual language / dual immersion students and it was such a great success that I passed it along for my other Kinder, 1st grade, and 2nd grade colleagues to use. This has really helped us in our intentionality in planning our dictados in both English and Spanish! Copyright © Josh Rageth. All rights reserved by author.
