Grow a Plant - Board Game

A board game that you can play in the classroom or at home. Children learn how to take turns and learn what seeds need to grow to become plants. You will need: • 1 x Game board • 4 x Players cards • 1 x dice (not provided) • 16 x Plant cards • 4 x Counters (not provided) Rules: Place all the plant cards in the middle of the board. Each player gets a player’s card (Seed, Sun, Water) and place their counter on the Start. Each time they cross the Start, players can tick one of their seed boxes. Players try to collect water and sun in order to grow their seeds into plants. Once they have all three (seed, water and sun), they can have a plant card. The aim of the game is to complete your card by growing 4 plants. Be careful, if you land on a caterpillar or the boots, then your plant is taken away from you and you need to grow another one. Also the bird will eat one of you seeds if you land on it. Good luck!

The Wind and the Sun (Talk for Writing)

The Wind and the Sun (Talk for Writing)

(1)
These resources were part of a training session for secondary school students visiting primary schools in Ghana to teach English for a period of two weeks. The students were taught how to introduce a story by using Talk for Writing, a teaching style developed by Pie Corbett. The story of ‘The Wind and the Sun’ was used as an example during the training session with the intention that each group of students will choose a different story to adapt and teach in Ghana. The expectation was that the Ghanaian students could speak some English so a Talk for Writing approach could benefit them due to its visual and kinesthetic emphasis on storytelling. The method of Talk for Writing enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it. Resources available The Wind and the Sun story adapted for EAL primary school children Training Booklet with instructions and examples of weekly and daily planning A story map using pictograms A visual bank with the key vocabulary Masks of the main characters
