Introducing ‘Level Up Your Language Skills 2’: the second in our new language learning series of practical exercises to help students in late primary school and early high school/middle school – and others who would benefit from working on their higher level oral language skills – to acquire higher level oral language and reading comprehension skills needed to succeed at school, at work, and in life.
In this resource, we employ evidence-based practical strategies to help students to understand and to use:
- High frequency homophones for comprehension and spelling.
- Simile comprehension and production.
- High frequency academic vocabulary: par, semantic, authority, domain, publish.
- Cultural literacy list: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
- Metaphor comprehension.
- Idioms: ‘Bad Egg’.
- Analogical reasoning tasks: A is to B as C is to D.
- Sayings and proverbs: ‘Beggars can’t be choosers’.
- Divergent naming for creative thinking.
- Language of myths and legends: Sisyphus and his stone.
All in all, 49-pages of fully scripted, no-preparation-needed, higher language goodness!
Made for Google Slides and in PDF. Suitable for smart boards and devices, and distance learning.
