Blake's Learning Centres are a wonderful motivating way for students to practise important skills. The 40 colourful cards in this resource provide comprehensive writing instruction for eight persuasive text types.
Featured Text Types:
Each Text Card provides an engaging, levelled and illustrated text sample that is supported by: three activity cards, five photocopiable worksheets and a Graphic Organiser. The lessons on the Activity Cards are divided as follows:
• Language Features – this card shows a shorter extract of the text and enables the students to examine the role and purpose of grammar at the word, sentence and whole text level.
• Activity Card – focuses on how the text meets the needs of purpose and audience, and the structural components of the text such as its layout and organisation, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation.
• Writing Card – provides a number of different tasks for students to work on as an individual or with a partner. This may involve them writing a section of text or a whole text.
All of the coloured pages in the books are designed to be removed and laminated to provide a durable classroom resource that can be used for many years.
