Imagine and Entertain

Top-quality teaching resources that fit the bill every time. Hands On Prompts provide you with writing prompts perfect for mixed ability classes. You'll find a multitude of uses for these 40 high-interest cards to ignite your students' abilities to write to imagine and entertain. Perfect for whole class, small group, individual and homework assignments Prompts have something for everyone.

This set consists of 40 fantastic cards. 20 cards have prompts to imagine – these cards encourage your students to use language to engage the reader. Students need to use powerful descriptions of characters and settings, and use interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs. 20 cards have prompts to entertain . Texts which entertain use language in a similar way to the imagine texts, especially in their use of descriptive techniques. Additionally, however, students should also employ techniques which appeal directly to the audience.

More able students will be able to answer the questions freely while the less able can use the questions as a writing frame to scaffold their text and provide their answers in simple sentences. Instructions and teaching tips complete the pack.

You can use Prompts as a stimulus for writing as well as for helping to develop essential speaking and listening and thinking skills.
