speaking and listening to impact writing

Discussion in 'English' started by fayebaline, Feb 6, 2011.


  1. I have an ob next week with set 2 year 5 literacy and the focus is
    speaking and listening and how it can be used to support writing. We are
    looking at famous people and biographies. I was thinking of giving
    pairs a selection of facts about a person. Then into groups where they
    share their facts (using cubes to help take turns) for others to listen
    and record the facts. THen they can work in pairs again to improve vocab
    Any ideas to improve this as I feel its lacking some inspiration!!!
    Thanks

  3. I don't teach students as young as this, but you might try getting them to write something after tellling their partner about their person. I use this technique a lot with creative writing - plan the story, tell your partner the story, get the partner to ask questions (why did this happen, where are you now, how did they get there...) THEN do the writing after the telling... You talk about using speaking and listening to support writing, but they aren't doing any writing in that session.
    Good luck.
     

  4. Change of plan I now think i'm going to write a letter from one of
    our famous people and the speaking and listening could be aciting out
    what thye would say and how we could change that it to written words
    Does this sound better as i feel a bit more confident about it!
    Thanks
