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.

Present and Past Tense Irregular Verb game

The objective of the game is for players to become familiar with past and present tense irregular verbs. The winner of the game will have matched up the most present and past tense verbs. It is a mixture of knowledge, luck and good memory skills. This resource contains two files. A word document (so that it can be edited if necessary) and a pdf document. 1. Print out the pages with the irregular verbs on them. (laminate to preserve if you want) 2. Keep piles separated (past tense verbs are underlined). 3. Have learners work in pairs or groups 4. Place the present tense verbs face down spread out in one area and the past tense verbs in another area. (Keeping them in rows and columns is best). 5.
