EAL for Secondary Students: Workbook 1

EAL for Secondary Students: Workbook 1

EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 1) directly addresses the unique academic needs facing students who arrive in the UK with little or no English. Beginning with first principles EAL for Secondary Students ensures that the student will develop an effective understanding of English. The tremendous advantage of this resource is that the student will immediately become fully included in the learning process. At the end of each unit, the student can record the progress they have made by completing the user friendly self-assessment sheet. EAL for Secondary Students is a student-centred resource which enables the student to be actively engaged in developing skills that are required in an academic environment. The teacher can witness and monitor the steady progress the EAL student is making towards becoming an independent learner. EAL for Secondary Students allows the teacher the flexibility to select appropriate topics. EAL for Secondary Students can, also, be used as an excellent Induction programme. When it is necessary and appropriate to withdraw students from mainstream classes, this is a systematic self-contained resource that enhances language development and activates confidence in the student. EAL for Secondary Students Workbook 1 contains over 80 pages of exercises.

GO FISH game. Shapes

GO FISH game. Shapes

Activity Five cards are dealt to each player if three to six players are involved. With only two players, seven cards are dealt to each. All remaining cards are placed face down in a pile. First, choose a player to go first. n each person’s turn, ask any player for a specific card rank. For example: “Sarah, please give me all your ovals.” You must already hold at least one card of the rank you ask for. If the player you ask has any cards of the requested rank, she must give all of her cards of that rank to you. In the example, Sarah would have to give you all of her ovals. If you get one or more cards from the player you ask, you get another turn. It starts again and you may ask any player for any rank you already hold, including the same one you just asked for. If the person you ask has no relevant cards, they say, “Go fish.” You then draw the top card from the draw pile. If you happen to draw a card of the rank asked for, show it to the other players and your turn continues. Otherwise, it is the next player’s turn. You add the drawn card to your hand. NOTE: The “next player” is the one who said “Go fish.” When you collect a set of four cards of the same rank, immediately show the set to the other players and place the four cards face down in front of yourself. That is a “match”. Go Fish continues until either someone has no cards left in their hand or the draw pile runs out. The winner is the player who then has the most matches (sets of four). For younger children you can deem “matches” a pair of a rank (2 cards instead of 4) which allows them to “win” a few extra times and keeps the game moving.
