FREE The Stick Man Story Workbook - 16 Thinking Hat Worksheets For Fun Creative Reading In Class. The Stick Man is all about a piece of wood which gets taken away by a dog, picked up by a girl and thrown in the river... where he is found by a swan. At each point he is further and further from home and less likely to make it back... this set of worksheets looks at the different Thinking Hat approaches to this book. They will consider facts, feelings, positives, negatives, creative approaches and finally make a mind map. This book does not contain any of the original drawings or text. You still need to find a copy of the book to complete this workbook. I would love feedback on this work.

FREE Room On The Broom Workbook - 16 Thinking Hat Worksheets for creative learning

This resource has been seen over 10,000 times and is one of my most popular teaching resources. The images are not from the book, and you will still need to use the book to complete the reading tasks. I was surprised at how few reading resources were available for Room on the broom, and I am keen to promote Thinking Hat Reading skills in the classroom and so I have spent a week developing a set of worksheets which teachers can download and use in the classroom. Please leave a comment after using them in the classroom.

ESL Pirate Alphabet - Perfect for talk like a pirate day + Pirate Writing Prompts+ 31 Teaching Tasks

I was trying to develop some ideas about how to present "Talk Iike a Pirate Day" to my lower ESL classes - those learning English or needing more support. I came across a video using the alphabet to teach about pirates using simple English and my Talk Like A Pirate resource, Pirate Alphabet, was developed. I hope you like it. The big idea is to print out the pages, and make them into fun flash cards. I have included a presentation explaining the 31 different ways you can use these flashcards in the classroom to help your children expand their vocabulary and improve their memory skills. In addition, I have added some creative writing prompts for a fun set of English lessons. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different objects being shown in each of the photos. You could print off and laminate the images to make an interesting, eye-catching Pirate Alphabet display. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different pirate related objects. The students can then discuss if they can think of other pirate related objects starting with this lesson. The images could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
