PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I spent a few hours researching and playing with Wordle to create these ‘personality’ words posters for our Year 9 narrative unit of work which focuses on imagery, figurative language and description. These colour and black and white posters include up to 800 words. The worksheet and poster double as a word bank for when the students start their short story writing.

How I’ve been using these resources:
******************************************
The worksheet contains a 150 word Wordle. I gave the students the worksheet and asked them to highlight 10 words they were unfamiliar with. They could then ask friends, use Google or use a dictionary to find out the meaning of them.

Then I asked them to highlight 10 words which describe themselves. You could suggest that students have their friends suggest which to highlight (I have a great class this year and they quickly started running around and ‘volunteering’ to highlight lovely words for each other!) This activity was a hit and a lot of fun.

Students then worked on decorating a book cover with the words which describe them.

The next task is to introduce photos of characters as a prompt and ask students to assign ‘personality words’ to each. Following that, I will introduce ‘vivid verbs’, ‘emotional words’ and ‘vivid adjectives’ which students will match with the personality of their character. As I develop these activities I will include them in this bundle: so buy now, download the new resources later for free :)
