Syntax Wordsearch English Language Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Syntax Wordsearch English Language Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Syntax'. 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!

Picture Prompts for Story, Interview and Diary Writing

Picture Prompts for Story, Interview and Diary Writing

This is a combination of two of my published Picture Prompts at a discount of 25%. Both of these are still available as individual products at the links below. Story Writing Prompts for Adventure Mystery and SciFi Date with a Monster Both sets consist of picture prompts with essay writing templates, and large image slides which can be laminated and used according to the teacher's wishes. All of these are PDF files. The 'Date with a Monster' resource contains a simple set of picture prompts using cartoon images of monsters for stimulating the imagination for the writing of diary entries and newspaper interviews. These are divided into 18 picture prompts of two different sets of materials for a 'Date with a Monster' diary writing, and an 'Interview with a Monster' reporting task. They can be adapted for most levels and an explanation of how they can be used in the classroom is included. The 'Story Writing Prompts for Adventure Horror Mystery and SciFi' can be used for ESL classes and would also be suitable for younger students and others that may require further practice in writing and making short stories that have a beginning, middle and conclusion. These are divided into four topic areas; adventure, mystery, horror and scifi. There are four of each type with or without prompts, so the teacher can decide which to use based on the needs of the individual student or class. A more detailed explanation can be found in my TES store on the respective pages of each resource. Please use the links at the beginning of this text to view both.

Night Time Presentation and Visual Story Prompts, Fun Story and 31 Activities

I have collected together my night time resources to make a lovely lesson starting with a night time story, followed by things we see in the night and a night time writing prompt. I have also included a teacher guide to show teachers how to use these Photo Flash cards in 31 different teaching activities in the classroom. These activities are easy to arrange, lots of fun and will improve your students' vocabulary and memory skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the images. You could print off and laminate the images to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated images and create them into a story . The images could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

17 Blank Photocopiable Templates ESL Resource Pack + Example Called "The Dentist"

17 Blank Photocopiable Templates ESL Resource Pack + Example Called "The Dentist"

This pack contains 17 templates for creating your own worksheets, for use in lessons, for testing, or for homework. You can use them with any level – your choice of vocabulary and tenses will determine the level. The example unit would be perfect for anyone interested in the topic of teeth, health or the dentist. • This pack also includes a sample set of finished worksheets (with answers) on the topic of “Dentist”. The level is pre-intermediate to intermediate. • You don’t need to create all the worksheets for a given topic; simply choose the ones you need. The worksheets are in four categories: vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and speaking & listening. Of course, you can also adapt the worksheets and include your own activities and categories. • Remember, as the teacher, you should know the answers to the worksheets! By thinking about the answers and researching what you do not know, your teaching skills will improve. • The worksheets practise concepts and skills that are fundamental to the You Are The Course Book method of teaching, for example: discussion words, spelling statements, tense conversion, idioms, word stress, sentence stress, collocations, connected speech, discussion, and so on. • In keeping with the YATCB method, why not encourage your students to make their own activities based on these worksheets – then swap them with one another, or give them to other classes. • You can write on the blank worksheets then photocopy them for your students, or create your own templates modelled on these worksheets
