You will get files in a Word document as well as PDF format so it is easily editable. This will save you hours of work! This resource contains a range of vocabulary and quality discussion questions for each section of the novel. It also includes a choice of follow-up tasks children could complete as they read the book. It is designed to last 7 weeks, however it can be adapted to suit your learners. I have used it in my classroom following the Highland Literacy Project’s way of organising reading in the upper primary classroom. Children engage in reading 3 times per week: Session 1 - Pupils discuss the text, read the set pages independently and look up new vocabulary from the pages they have read. Session 2 - Pupils discuss the pages read with their group and the teacher. Session 3 - Pupils complete a follow-up task based on their book to demonstrate further understanding. When I have used this, I have printed a few pages of the document to share between pupils in the reading group. For Week 1, Session 1 - pupils use page 1 of the document. For Week 1, Session 2 - pupils use page 2 of the document. For Week 1, Session 3 - pupils have completed follow-up tasks in their jotters. I hope you find this resource useful, however you choose to use it.

Task Maps - Mr Skip by Michael Morpurgo

Task Maps - Mr Skip by Michael Morpurgo

(0)
There are 2 task maps, each with 8 different independent tasks to go along with the novel, Mr Skip by Michael Morpurgo. This book is in the grey book band. One task map will usually be enough to cover in a week/2 to 3 reading lessons, so I have used this with reading groups over the course of 2 weeks. The novel is split as follows: Task map 1: Chapters 1 to 3 Task map 2: Chapters 4 to the end
French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game
missdickson7missdickson7

French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game

(0)
This is a card game to support learners with French weather vocabulary. It could be used as a pairs/pelmanism game, snap game or a simple matching game. Cards have reverse side (which says “Quel temps fait-il?”) so please print double sided if you wish to make use of this. From my experience it can be useful to have the reverse side to prevent any observant pupils having a sneaky read of the card when placed upside down!! My resource comes as a PDF ready to print, as well as a Word document so you can edit as you wish. The spacing of the cards should be correct so this will save you a lot of work! I hope you find this resource useful.
