This resource really excited my pupils. There are three exciting pictures which provoke their imagination to write anything they want. The keywords are provided and they produce sentences based on these words. This is a great activity to do at the end of the lesson when the students are tired. They can work in partners and think of ideas together.
This worksheet develops the student's skills with creating sentences, the child is given a number of words - nouns and verbs - and he/she must join them together to create a sentence. The next section gives the child a group of nouns and verbs which correspond. The student must fit each noun and verb into the sentences below, appropriately. This provides the student with the knowledge of various crafts.

These are advisable for parents/teachers when they want to motivate children to do their homework or other activity.
This evaluation form should be used every week when teaching pupils who are in need of extra assistance in or out of the classroom.
