Language Feature Taboo game

Language Feature Taboo game

(0)
THis resource includes a pack of 16 taboo cards. I would recommend creating packs between pairs, so would always aim to make 16 packs in case you have 32 students in your classroom. The aim of the game is to split the cards between the pair, and not to show your partner what you have. Partner 1 will try to describe the language device that is written on the card; without saying 1. the language feature and 2. any of the hint words on the cards. For example an Adjective card would have hint words like 'describe' 'noun' and 'word'. Player 2 needs to guess the language device by listening to clues or examples from player 1, and the they swap. Its quite a hard game and stretches students' minds to think about examples and different ways of understanding language devices. This game works amazing with upper level classes and i normally do it as a starter or a plenary for about 10 minutes max. For lower level i would recommend going over what each word means in the pack of cards before they do this (even with high level if i'm honest as there's words like hyperbole and sibilance), but it also works really well with lower ability groups too and they love the fun element! I would also say laminate them and put then in little envelopes and keep them nice to reuse and they come in super handy with recapping or revision!!

War Photographer and Remains lesson and War Poetry Board Game

(0)
Included: PowerPoint entailing the lesson Starter activity Board game activity Plenary activity The aim of the game is to roll the dice (twice!) and the square you land on, in pairs, you need to find a evidence from both Remains and War Photographer (other war poems can work too) . Once you have done that, write your answers in the grid. It will help you when finding similarities and differences. For example: if you can only find a simile in War Photographer, then that is a difference. It is colour coded for difficulty! Green = easy. Amber = medium. Red = hard. CHALLENGE YOURSELF!!

A Christmas Carol Entire Stave 1 Important Quotes and Explanations

(0)
A 57 slide powerpoint with every important quote from Stave 1. In addition to the quote and who it is by, I also explain the relevance of the quote, including language devices - symbolism and connection to society at the time context, the Author, wider reading and literature. I have also added extra quotes at the end for extra info to be added. This lesson can be taught as a revision lesson, where students can bring in flashcards and write the quote on one side and the explanation on the otherside - and hey presto, their revision for Stave 1 quotes is all there! This powerpoint took just over two lessons to complete with my top set class - so could easily be used for 3 lessons with a high ability class for revision, or even 5 lessons with a lower ability.

Analysing Lady Macbeth as a character

(0)
I have attached a PowerPoint explaining how to use the board game, as well as a board game for the characterisation of Lady Macbeth. The aim of the board game is to sit the pupils in pair, with one A3 size board game, their Macbeth books, and two dice each. The need to roll the dice once and go along the corridor on their game, then on their second roll they go down the stairs until they land on one square. For example if they land on a square which says 'powerful' they need to find the best quote they can that describes Lady Macbeth as powerful, and write it on their board game. The winner of the game is the team who have the most amount of squares filled in with brilliant quotes. IN the end they will end up with 36 quotes on Lady Macbeth, which can later be used for their Point and their Evidence in their PEE paragraphs. Pupils get very competitive and feel like it's a game, it is a really good way of stretch and challenging your pupils to work independently. They are colour coded for difficulty and differentiation.
