Garment care

Submitted by Sarah Horsley on Sat, 2011-05-21 16:03

Pre-entry: Rtc/M8.3, Rw/M8.3

Literacy: Rs/E1.1, Rw/E1.1

Context: Independent living

Resource type: Hands-on / practical activity, Worksheet or assignment

Level: M8, E1

Straightforward but very practical worksheet where ESOL learners select a garment and answer questions about its washing care symbols. The written questions require at least E1 reading skills but other parts of the worksheet focus on symbol recognition and are thus suitable for pre-Entry emerging readers / writers.
Note: for more on laundry symbols see “Buying Clothes” PPT below.

preEntry Seasons and days of the week

Submitted by Claire Millard on Thu, 2011-05-19 09:42

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.
