The Striving to Improve Series: Speaking and Listening

The Striving to Improve Series: Speaking and Listening

The Striving to Improve Series targets students who, for whatever reason, are struggling to keep up with their peers. The activities in the books are designed to prevent students from regressing any further at school. The tasks are based on a modified curriculum so that students can work at their own pace and without constant supervision from the teacher.The children who you teach may be struggling with their school work because they have been diagnosed with learning difficulties such as ADHD or dyslexia. They may be struggling because of social factors which have resulted in them missing a lot of school. Whatever the reason, this book, Speaking and Listening, will help students prepare and deliver their own speeches and listen to speeches delivered by their classmates.Activities in this book link to relevant and appropriate curriculums for Years 5 and 6, so children feel that what is being asked of them is actually achievable. To make the tasks more manageable, they have been broken down into small parts which gives each student the opportunity to process one idea at a time. Time limits have been either abandoned or made flexible for students so success becomes a habit rather than a rarity.This is a Photocopy Master ebook (56 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom. Our ebooks are in pdf format.Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.Editor: Lindsay Marsh

Look Say Cover Write and Check that really teaches

Look Say Cover Write and Check that really teaches

Look Say Cover Write and Check is a tried and tested method of getting pupils to learn individual spellings, but to be honest they usually don't give learners much help in learning them. This one does! It includes multiple strategies, such as looking at word shape, relating to spellings already known, noticing easy and difficult parts of the word, etc. The resource itself explains how it can best be used. More in depth discussion of this here: http://thespellingblog.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/look-say-cover-write-check-template.htmlJohanna Stirling is the author of the award-winning Teaching Spelling to English language Learners
