1) This is a unit about the Christmas season. It is designed for the students to enjoy and have fun. There are also activities that will challenge the students. I have included reading comprehensions, poetry writing and appreciation, story writing, craft, a quiz, wonderwords and crosswords.
2) An original set of 20 Task Cards designed to stimulate creativity and imagination.
The cards can be used as group or individual activities. As a group activity the cards foster communication and discussion in order to solve the problems.
In a mixed ability class, I found it necessary to have activities available for those students who complete work quickly. Not simply more work but tasks that the students would consider challenging and enjoyable.
3) This is an original set of 20 story starters to assist students in their writing. All of the cards are based around the Christmas theme, a topic that is familiar to students and a prospect that excites them.
The natural progression, hopefully, is that the students will want to write.
I have included a list of the contents of the unit.
