A specially adapted version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for foundation skills reading and writing and special education.
My 5 week scheme of work covering staves 1-5 is included. Lessons are planned for 2 hours duration, but they are adaptable to suit your own needs.
This complete lesson covers Stave 1 and includes all handouts, a presentation and worksheets for a variety of activities designed to increase vocabulary, assist with spelling, reading comprehension and creative writing - working as a group and individually.
This resource means foundation level students can enjoy classic literature and improve their reading and writing skills at the same time.
