The perfect resource for encouraging your students to write to inform and explain, these 40 hardwearing cards certainly help banish the bland. Eminently practical and ridiculously easy to use, your students’ will enjoy practising their writing skills with these varied tasks.

This set consists of 40 fantastic cards. 20 cards have prompts to inform, 20 cards have prompts to explain. These tasks require students to organise texts clearly and sensible. They should make good use of headings, connectives, paragraphing, numbering, bullets and so on. You can explain that informative texts often give examples, using diagrams, facts and figures to support the text.

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.
