Author's Scaffold - Plan and write your script. story, screen play or book with ease

(0)
This scaffold for Authors is a great tool for writers to plan out their scripts, screenplays, novels or any other stories with ease. Have you ever thought about writing a novel for your students, your own children, or just for fun? Or are you running a writer’s club for older students? This tool will help you or your students plan out every detail of any story so that writing becomes a breeze. By filling in the details as and when the ideas come to you, you’ll have all the notes you need to begin your writing. First, you’ll outline roughly what you want to happen in the story - beginning, middle and end. You’ll decide on a genre and you may decide on a working title. Then, you’ll plan out everything you need on each of the characters who affect the plot - what do they look like? What is their back story? What can they do? and all the other details which are important. After that, you’ll write in the steps of each character’s journey - Beginning with their normal life, following through 12 steps which will bring you to the conclusion. You’ll then jot down any additional steps or flashback scenes you want to include and finally decide on the order you want to tell the story to give the reader the best experience. This really is writing the easy way. Enjoy becoming an author, and helping your students do the same.

Australia - Fact vs Fiction - Reading comp and game

Lesson objective :Begin a poster containing facts about Australia. This is a class designed to lead students to create a fact sheet about Australia, which will then be adapted to be a non-fiction text later. It begins with True/False questions with fun facts. This then changes to Fact/Fiction. Students then do a pair reading activity to find out some more facts. They then set to work on their posters about Australia. In a 45 minute class, they will just have time to begin the posters, so they could finish it for homework or in the next class.

Decimal operations Halloween activity

(0)
This class is designed to allow students to practice manipulating decimal numbers with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Place accessories around the room for the students to choose for the scariest witch in the world. They calculate how much it will cost (addition) and do a quick estimation to see if they are probably right. Then, they move onto the subsequent steps which involve recalculating due to a lack of money (subtraction), getting a 15% discount, followed by 15% tax (multiplying by decimals), and sharing the bill with some friends (division). Finally, they draw their witch using only the items they bought and try to explain why theirs is the scariest of them all.

This is the third in my series of English competitions for English speakers. Public speaking/ English competition to be used in school-wide events or within the class for confidence building. These competition PPTs are elegant looking PPTs guiding the organisers and students through a three round competition. First, ten competitors describe a picture based on the number they choose. 8 competitors go to round two, where they take part in a pair role play based around a real life situation. 3 competitors go to the final round, in which they are given a question to talk about. The format allows students to use a range of speaking skills, pushing them towards fluency and accuracy through practice.

Spelling and vocabulary Review Game generator - Practise/Practice any words (Any language)

(0)
This is a spelling and vocabulary review game generator. it works with any words, so use it to review your weekly spelling lists in game form. A very straight forward tool. Simply type 20 words which you want students to review into a list, choose whether you want a snakes 'n ladders format or a more generic board game and print onto A4 or A3 paper. Words are placed randomly over the board. If you want to re-order the words, press F9 for a refresh and the games will regenerate. The games work as follows. Students roll a die, move a counter and spell or define the word they land on (variations would be simple, too - give a synonym/antonym etc). Playing small review games often is a much more effective system to get students to remember vocabulary than simply giving them a list of words. The game itself will work in any language. Try English, French, German, even Chinese. The kids will love it, too!
