Aim: to give learners practice in identifying and punctuating sentence beginnings and endings; to give personalised practice in writing a description of a living room

Materials: A task sheet for each learner

ESOL level: Access 3

SCQF level: 3

Time: 45 - 60 mins

Preparation: Photocopies of the task sheet; a plan of the living room described to show the position of the items mentioned, maybe a transparency of the text

In class:

1.) Using the plan of the living room elicit what the items are and where they are.

2.) Focusing on the text check that learners understand what the problem is.

3.) Start the re-writing as a class – if learners need more help use the transparency to elicit and mark sentence beginnings and endings with a slash.

4.) Learners rewrite the text. Encourage learners to use the lines as a guide and monitor.

5.) Stronger learners can write about their own living room and might be able to produce a plan to accompany it.

Variation:If the class can produce several pieces of writing and several plans, these could be separated, the class can then read each description and match with the plan.

Assessment: the task helps prepare learners for the following summative assessments:
