Goodbye in Languages Wordsearch World Language Day Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Goodbye in Languages Wordsearch World Language Day Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Goodbye in Different Languages'. 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. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Sound words booklets - pack

Sound words booklets - pack

A series of booklets for children to use in the classroom or take home for practice. Levels allocated (12 booklets in total) based on my experience of the ways in which children learn the sounds of the English language. The booklets are suitable for use from early childhood right through to middle secondary. I have a Masters in Literacy and Language Education and a Graduate Diploma in Neuroscience (Learning). There are spaces for also writing other sound words or nonsense words :)

Creative writing

Creative writing

A great ice-breaker activity that leads into creative writing. A 4 paragraph, timed space theme story. With lead-in Youtube clip and song lyrics to support in preparing the class for the writing task. I have used this resource for adults and teens, it always works well. You can allow them to play around with the structure later, each paragraph is written on a separate sheet to enable learners to swap and change sections with each other to make various stories.

50 this or that question cards - Game of two extremes

50 this or that question cards - Game of two extremes

Keep your middle school and high school students active by playing the TWO EXTREMES game. The facilitator will use a stack of cards listing things, activities or places that fall at opposite ends of the spectrum, such as: salty or sweet, London or New York, Mac or PC. The students start standing in a big group, but when each choice is read, they move to the side of the room that the facilitator indicates is associated with their choice (see the arrows on the cards). Those who can’t make up their mind or don’t have a preference remain in the center. Students will see all of the things that they have in common with their classmates and will likely learn some new vocabulary while they’re at it! These cards are great for middle school or high school and can be used at any time, especially when everyone needs a break and needs to stand up and move around a bit. This activity requires no teacher prep once the set of cards is printed and cut out. Don’t want to print or don’t have time to do so? That’s ok! There’s a PDF file with only one card per page that you can project and play as a class. Included: PDF of big cards to project when you don’t want to print Stack of 50 cards to print, cut out, punch holes in and attach with a ring - Black and white & color copies provided How to play LICENSING TERMS: This purchase includes a license for one teacher only for personal use in their classroom.

Boy by Roald Dahl Novel Study Review

Boy by Roald Dahl Novel Study Review

This fun and engaging game is the perfect way to review the novel the Boy by Roald Dahl. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
