Competency: C3 – To write texts + the writing process
Language conventions: sentence order, punctuation, verb tenses, capital letters,
pronouns

Students work with partners and use the classified ads to write an original story. They

together to cut out and glue these ads onto a piece of paper and neatly write or print
their story.

For an example, see the box below:

Students race through the newspaper, write down the first word they find (not proper
nouns) that starts with the letter A, then B, and so on, as far as possible into the
alphabet.

The lists can then be used with a dictionary to learn new words or to make stories.

A                 B                  C                    D             E          F

Used with: Elementary cycle 2 or 3, secondary cycle 1
Competency: C3
Strategies: skimming, scanning, take notes
Vocabulary
Materials: Newspapers, scissors, glue, paper

Students prepare 26 sheets of paper: they label each sheet of paper with a capital
letter, cut from a newspaper headline (see the example below).
Then, each student finds 26 new words, one for each letter of the alphabet. (You can
ask students not to choose proper nouns, pronouns…)
These words are glued or copied on the correct page. Then, depending on the level of
the students, they can illustrate the word (cycle 2 elementary), write a synonym (cycle 3
elementary) or write a definition for the word (cycle 1 secondary).
If students have difficulty finding words for certain letters (e.g. J, Q, U, X and Z),
allow them to substitute another unknown word for the other letters.



                                                                 A

    Each student receives a comic page from the newspaper and they read them.
     Then, they choose their favourite comic strip. They will present their favourite
     comic strip to the class and they have to say why it is their favourite. (C1-C2)

    In teams of 2, 3 or 4 (or more), they choose one comic strip and act it out or
     mime to the rest of the class. If they mime it, the page where they chose their
     comic strip could be shown to the class and they have to try and guess which
     comic strip was mimed.

    Provide students with “action comic strips” from which you have removed the
     dialogue. Ask students to write in a new dialogue. Then, you could ask them to
     role play their new version of the comic strip.

    You could look at different comics, from different authors, and then, they could
     write their own comic strip. They would need to invent characters, a plot or
     storyline, a sequence of events and then create the comic strip. You can give a
     theme/topic or they can choose their own.

       On the following pages, there are examples of a comic strip storyboards.
