Use these vocabulary exercises to help pupils plan, draft and write creatively, says Emily Azouelos…
In this lesson you’ll use a variety of creative vocabulary exercises to deepen pupils’ understanding of the text you’re currently studying.
The vocabulary generated from the activities can be used in subsequent writing lessons and displayed on a working wall to act as a focal point for children when it comes to planning, drafting and writing creatively.
The exercises will help students understand the context of the vocabulary, provide opportunities for oracy and draw upon drama techniques to make the vocabulary examined memorable, engaging and, above all, fun!
What they’ll learn
- The context behind words and how context can affect vocabulary choice
- How to level-up their vocabulary to create different effects for the reader
- Expand their word knowledge
- Broaden and deepen their understanding of related words
