A series of labels that can be used to encourage students to find better vocabulary.

Gothic Fiction - The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe

(0)
Two sets of dominoes for some of the difficult language in The Raven - each card has a word on one side and a definition of a different word on the other side. Students start with START card and first word and then try to find definitions to help them access the poem on a deeper level.

Grammar & vocabulary - Improving setting and speech

(0)
A lesson on 'show, don't tell' to up level speech and vocabulary, thereby making work more interesting to the reader. Uses the concept of paint charts to encourage students to make more interesting word choices for said as the the colours get darker. This is then applied to a series of settings where students need to show what is happening rather than just tell. Includes models of what students can aim for. Resources: Paint charts with alternatives for said (asked, whispered, cried, shouted, begged, laughed) Presentation with modelled examples at different levels.

Language and vocabulary building - Alien busting

(0)
A series of sheets that can be printed on labels. Each sheet has one word (nice, sad, old etc) with an alien. The students (either with a thesaurus or from their own vocabulary) has to find alternatives to 'bust' the alien. How many alternative words they have to find is up to you, I usually go for 5. Always a successful starter activity. Made for Avery A4 & A5 sizes, L7161.
