Submitted by Kathy Crockford on Wed, 2014-10-01 09:34

Literacy: Apply punctuation and capitalisation, SLc/L1.2, Ws/L2.4, Functional English - writing

ESOL: ESOL Writing: sentence focus (punctuation and grammar), ESOL Writing

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Handout or guide, Worksheet or assignment

Editor’s note
Updated Sept 17. Errors corrected and minor layout changes.

A handout and exercise sheets for using direct and reported speech. Gives several example of each and the exercises work by switching the same message between direct and reported speech.

I have used this as a speaking/listing exercise as well as writing for grammar/punctuation. Target group is really L1 /L2 but can work well with high E3 too.

ESOL: ESOL Writing: sentence focus (punctuation and grammar), ESOL Writing

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Level: E3

This revision task aims to prepare students for the Entry 3 ESOL writing test.
It portrays a sample student answer to Task 1 Cambridge ESOL E3 Test 067 with accompanying teacher feedback. The idea is that your student corrects the mistakes that have been pointed out by the teacher.
It also demonstrates some effective methods of feedback that you can use to help learners improve their writing – without actually making the corrections for them.
A knowledge of perfect tenses is expected.

Pre-entry: Rs/M8.1, Ws/M8.1, Rtc/M8.3, Ww/M8.1, Wt/M8.4, Ww/M8.2, Rw/M8.2, Rw/M8.3

ESOL: ESOL Reading, ESOL Writing

Level: M8, E1

Resource type: Cut and stick, Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

The worksheets can be used as seems appropriate for your learners. My method was for learners to identify the seasons and write the names beneath the pictures – I had put them on the board in a random order for learners to be able to use first and second letter recognition to match the words and pictures.

The days of the week sheet was used as a recapping tool – learners insert the first letter, then fold at the dotted line and write them out again.
