preEntry Seasons and days of the week
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. This was followed by a Q and A session on ‘what do you do on…’ to get learners talkiing about activities.
We followed this by matching pictures of ‘weekly activities’ with words/phrases to describe them (pre-lit learners can use the cut outs if preferred) and then the reading – again, matching the words/phrases in the reading exercise to the pictures.
Used in a preEntry ESOL group but also suitable (and fully mapped to) preEntry literacy.
