As an EAL teacher, I use these videos for a multitude of purposes. They provide excellent material to promote talk about characters, settings, storylines and topics. There are two types of layout providing ready made differentiation. As well, I use the videos to support the writing process whether it be recounts or narratives. All levels of EAL children can take part. The children enjoy watching the videos which makes lessons fun.
I use these as part of a weekly reading session with a group of KS3/4 SEN students. They are great for teaching inference and comprehension, and a welcome alternative to reading text which my class find challenging. The videos keep the group engaged, the differentiated worksheets are great and of course it saves me hours of planning time which is invaluable. Another great resource, thank you!
Love these video comprehensions. I am now working as a supply teacher and they provide me with a high quality basis for discussions in multi composite classes with little planning required by me. Children feel supported by the video content especially less confident readers. More able children benefit from the multi choice options or the written answer worksheet. Highly recommend.
Absolutely brilliant! Used this pack to help teach inference. The children loved the videos. Thank you.
My tuition pupils just love these videos. Following the lockdowns, I have several pupils who have lost a great deal of confidence. Comprehension is NOT their favourite activity usually but these videos engage them and they often ask to see another one. I started by asking the questions and discussing answers with them but now they are happy to complete them in writing. The favourite one so far is Dustin, closely followed by Hey Deer. Another inspirational resource - thank you!
As with all packs produced by Teaching Packs, the Video Comprehension Pack is easy to use, well laid out and lends itself to differentiation with ease. The videos included in the pack are exactly the right length for use in the classroom, bright, colorful and with high production values. They include both factual and fictional content, with appropriate comprehension questions and a choice of layouts. I have used this pack to teach comprehension but have also used it in a cross-curricular manner to teach topics in science , history and geography. It was particularly useful when teaching the writing genres of recount, narrative and explanation as it allowed me to cater for and support all abilities in my class. It goes without saying that the children absolutely love the videos, as do I. It is incredibly beneficial to have access to this excellent pack and all the other fab packs produced by Mark and Helen. Teaching Packs truly is my 'Go-To' teaching resource.
I loved using this pack. What a gem! Thanks team! I first discovered this pack when I was in lockdown. The kids loved it, they found the activities easy to understand and they were keen to do comprehension once again. Yay! I had many requests for topics and I found that your topics covered a wide range. The history ones were particularly popular. Once back at school I included them in my weekly lessons. I would love some more when you have a chance as I have the same kids again this year so I know they are going to ask about them. This was just an incredibly fun way to learn and use comprehension strategies. I too would love some that hone in on the main areas of comprehension e.g. main ideas, reorganisation, inferencing, evaluating to name a few. This is one of my favourite packs 😍
A usable pack- particularly for use in a support setting as there are visual and audio resources.
This pack is most definitely up there for me. I teach older students, some of who have quite comprehensive learning needs in literacy. The differentiated learning pack enables both gifted and strugglers an opportunity to succeed on a really engaging platform. It also provided intensive scope to add my own twist to tasks and take each video further if needed. Top rate resource!!
I used some of these with the children and they were hooked. It was wonderful for teaching the skill of inferencing. They seemed to be much more in tune with using this skill through watching a video than reading a book.
