The objective of the game is for players to become familiar with past and present tense irregular verbs. The winner of the game will have matched up the most present and past tense verbs. It is a mixture of knowledge, luck and good memory skills. This resource contains two files. A word document (so that it can be edited if necessary) and a pdf document. Answer key is included. 1. Print out the pages with the irregular verbs on them. (laminate to preserve if you want) 2. Keep piles separated (past tense verbs are underlined). 3. Have learners work in pairs or groups 4. Place the present tense verbs face down spread out in one area and the past tense verbs in another area. (Keeping them in rows and columns is best). 5.

If a match is not made, they turn the cards back over and the next person has their turn. 7. When a match is made the learner keeps the two cards. 8. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end of the game. 9. Optional – learners to then make up sentences with the verbs for extra points.

Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

This resource is a Powerpoint Presentation that can be used to train people on how to write emails effectively. I have used this on a leadership course and it was well received. There are some time saving gems in here that can be easily implemented into your work day. There are also tasks that can be completed in pairs or groups. Lots of areas for discussion. Also a good opportunity for businesses to think about and discuss best practice for their own organisation. The average office worker receives around 80 emails each day. With that volume of mail, individual messages can easily get overlooked. Follow these simple rules to get your emails noticed and acted upon: Don't over communicate by email. Make good use of subject lines. Keep messages clear and brief. Be polite. Check your tone. Proofread.

Better Handwriting for Adults - PowerPoint Presentation and Handwriting Worksheets

Better Handwriting for Adults - PowerPoint Presentation and Handwriting Worksheets

This resource has been created for adults and older children that want to improve their handwriting. It is a 20 slide interactive presentation with accompanying worksheets for practice. Topics: What is good handwriting? Vocabulary associated with handwriting Warmup for Writing Letter formation Letter groups Pangrams Form filling Signatures Top 3 tips for improving handwriting I often hear people say that they hate their handwriting, or that no one can read it. It is such an important part of communication. Even with email and the internet being a big part of written communication you cannot replace the benefit of a hand written note or message on a card. Not to mention that many workplace forms still need to be filled out manually and it is so important that the writing is clear. I have used this in my workplace training sessions and learners have enjoyed it and noticed improvements within 10 days of practice. I wanted to get away from all the babyish resources that are just not appropriate to teach adults with. I hope you enjoy this.

Health & Safety Vocabulary Bank with mix and match activity

Health & Safety Vocabulary Bank with mix and match activity

This document contains common words that are found in Health and Safety documentation in the workplace that everyone should be familiar with. On the first page the word is listed with a plain English definition to the right. The next two pages contain cut outs so that a mix and match activity can take place with learners. This is suitable for those with low levels of literacy and / or English as a second language learners. I have put this into practice and it has been very well received within the workplace. I split the class into groups and they have a competition to see who can finish first and / or get 100% accuracy. Leads to good discussions as well.
