These fun, Harry Potter-themed activities can be used as either stand alone tasks, or as a compliment to a novel study of Harry Potter.
No prep - just print. All the worksheets and texts required to use this pack are included... just choose the activity and print what you need!
The pack includes 2 reading comprehensions and a writing activity:
Both reading comprehensions come complete with a text, questions and full answer sheet...
Comprehension 1: Hogwarts Houses - Find out what students of the different Hogwarts houses are like!
Comprehension 2: The Sorting Hat - Hear from some 'new Hogwarts students'. Which house will they be joining? Using what they've read, your students will have to place each person into a house, explaining their choices and justifying their answers.
The comprehensions build towards a writing activity which is supported by a prompt sheet in the form of suggested sentence structures and starters. Students must use what they've learnt to decide which house THEY best belong to and then persuade the Sorting Hat to place them there! A writing presentation template is also included.
This fun and engaging resource is designed to build on the popularity of this wonderful story to help develop your students' love of reading (whilst practising some comprehension skills along the way).
Printer-friendly versions of the comprehension sheets and writing prompts are included in the pack.
