Functional Skills English Writing Module - 131 PPT slides

This 131 page Powerpoint is aimed at Entry 3 - Level 1 learners. I call this lesson ‘back to basics’ and usually teach all of its content on day one of my course. I call it ‘primary and secondary’ school English rolled into three hours. It goes over the basic SPAG that they will need to know before they start writing for the writing module. It is a refreshers guide on the following: How to use syllables as a strategy to spell difficult words How to use a dictionary quickly and correctly What is a plural What is a prefix and what is a suffix What is verb tense How to use punctuation correctly Homophones and how to tell the difference between them Each section is a step by step guide that will help your learners to re-learn all the basic English skills that they need. There are different quizzes in the Powerpoint including: what punctuation marks are missing from these song words/song titles and spell the following word by breaking the word down into syllables…plus many more… I have designed the Powerpoint so that all learners can get involved. Just give them a white board and they can answer the questions as you read them out - great for differentiation. I have also attached three activities that I have made myself: Grammar activity - a house for sale advert that needs to be changed to the present tense A punctuation exercise Homophone exercise - using the story of Red Riding Hood to find all the misspelled homophones ( there are twenty in total and it is a great proofreading exercise). I hope you find this resource useful!
