108 Cloze Exercises Aesop's Fables KS1 KS2 Literacy Greek Roman Myths Aesop

108 Cloze Exercises Aesop's Fables KS1 KS2 Literacy Greek Roman Myths Aesop

108 cloze exercises on Aesop’s Fables. Great for Literacy lessons. Gives lower ability pupils confidence. The Cloze worksheet is a standard exercise for improving students’ understanding of word context. The student then fills in the words on the worksheet based on an understanding of the sentence and the list of potential words removed from the text. The cloze procedure is a reading comprehension activity in which words are omitted from a passage and students are required to fill in the blanks. This procedure is incredibly useful in reading instruction because it can be easily done by any teacher and provides valuable reading comprehension information.

This resource takes students through a step by step study of this fascinating novel. Activities are differentiated, essay are guided with supportive notes and preparatory activities, close reading is modeled and exemplars offered to ensure that students are inspired by a high standard of work. This resource covers Part 5 of the novel and includes character studies, close reading, thematic and structural studies, hot seating, creative writing, group work, peer assessment and DIRT activities, all with a nod to SMSC. This can be purchased individually or as part of a bundle from my shop.

Blood Brothers - Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons!

Blood Brothers - Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons!

This engaging and interesting lesson enables students to make clear and developed interpretations of the characters of Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons in Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers. In particular, students infer and interpret key information about the characters from their introductions into the play, before tracking how their characters develop through close analysis of key quotations. The lesson utilises a range of tasks, that require students to be both independent and collaborative learners. It follows this learning journey: Considering the meaning of the key term ‘stereotype’ and how Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons represent stereotypes of social groups; Engaging with the opening to the text and interpreting how Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons are presented; Tracking how the characters are developed throughout the play, through engagement with key quotations; Answering an essay-style question about the introduction and development of the characters; Self-evaluating their learning in the lesson. Included in this resource pack are: A well-presented, thorough, and informative, whole-lesson PowerPoint presentation; Appropriate extracts from the play; A worksheet with key quotations to enable students to track the development of characters; A template to help scaffold the main task, complete with quotes from the text; A comprehensive teacher guidance form/lesson plan to assist delivery. Resources are provided in both Word (for easy editing)and PDF (to prevent formatting issues between computers). All images in this resource are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide of the lesson presentation.
