Plenaries to Help Literacy
- Encourage students to select five words from the lesson and construct a glossary at the back of their book. These can be used as a starter spelling test next lesson. This is also useful if, in pairs, one student spells and the other gives the definition.
- Word Walls – make them active: new words are posted by the students at the end of the lesson – allows you to introduce new vocabulary and highlight key subject specific words
