Hi, I've got a really lovely bottom set Y7 group this year who are incredibly low ability. They're currently ever so motivated and hard-working, but some are struggling with tasks involving reading and writing because they find it difficult enough in English. This is an issue even at word level - I pointed at a word and asked a pupil what letter it ended in and they got it wrong. I spelled a place name out to another pupil and they wrote Q when I said K. They are good verbally and are absolutely delightful - Last lesson a pupil sneezed, so I said "a tes souhaits" and he responded "merci", completely naturally and unprompted. There are 3 bossy girls who like to get the class lined up for me by gesturing and shouting "les filles!", "les garcons!", "silence!". I want to harness this enthusiasm and avoid demoralising them with too much focus on the written word. I find it difficult to do that much speaking with most classes due to group sizes, but this class only has 16 pupils so it's a good starting point. I'm interested in the idea of storytelling, Q&A etc. (I have an American friend who is very into TPRS and it looks interesting, though I wouldn't want to do it with all groups all the time) but I don't really know where to get started, how to make it accessible and comprehensible. If anyone has any suggestions and resources I would be so grateful as I don't feel equipped to teach these kids properly but really don't want to let them down!
