A set of five texts about screen time, physical and sedentary activity, and sleep for Children under age 5. The texts can be used in various combinations for Functional Skills (FS) speaking, listening and communicating; reading and writing activities. Teachers can pick and choose their own texts and create related DARTs (directed activities related to text) and questions to suit. There will also be pre-prepared resources on skillsworkshop. See "See also" for links.
I’m using this activity to give learners a writing frame for a piece of creative writing. I want them to really think about purpose of text when they are creating it, so they have to pick the format, style and tone of their work and plan it out.
Functional English - writing
(a) Use tone, style and register for different forms, purposes and audiences
6 Excel charts showing all the curriculum indicators in any particular level: pre-Entry (Milestone 1- Milestone 8 in one sheet), and one sheet each for E1, E2, E3, L1, L2.
Each chart provides, on one page, a quick, visual record of progress and achievement and is particularly useful in forming and updating individual learning plans. They can be kept in students’ basic skills folders and used to set targets and track progress.
