HUGE pack of FIVE DETAILED resources for you to choose from. Do all the scheme or just the key descriptive task with 4 supporting files. This is an ideal scheme of work and rich resource bundle for students of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ or, indeed, any other story which has a sequence set in forests or the wild outdoors. Also works great as a forest-themed stand-alone descriptive writing unit across KS3 and 4. The pack contains:
What makes a good story?’ strips that students are invited to rank in order of importance out of 12. Helps them isolate the key ingredients of good writing.
A PowerPoint slideshow summarising descriptve writing, with lots of useful technical terms and detailed examples to inspire them! The slideshow also explores other possible topics, using fairgrounds as examples, but this could be quickly adapted.
A clear 2-sided task sheet inviting the students to imagine that, like Helena (or any other character you want!) - you too are stranded all alone in the enchanted forest. The sheet has a model opening paragraph to help get the students started.
Lots of images to inspire them.
A great little ‘forest story’ grid game, which you just print out in colour and laminate. This is used to do the paired creative ‘forest writing’ task and supports the PowerPoint, if you don;t have time for the students to make their own grids, as suggested in the slideshow!
A handy vocabulary sheet with words and phrases for forests, darkness and light, covering adjectives, nouns, verbs, metaphors, similes, personification and symbolism. The sheet really helps them focus and broadens their expression.
