She performs magic acts, throw custard pies with the clowns and becomes the Ringmaster. The bright, colourful pages accompany each sentence introducing the day’s activity.

Templates for Marking Spellings by their Syllables

Templates for Marking Spellings by their Syllables

Ten spellings may consist of thirty syllables and it is much more rewarding to gain 15/30 than 1/10. Not only is this great to boost confidence but students soon appreciate the value of learning their prefixes and suffixes. Students can see the same mistakes in different words. Syllables are small manageable chunks to learn, once learned they are transferable into hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of words. These are large font to make laminated dry wipes. Alternatively I print two pages onto A4 landscape, to go into the Lexicology A5 workbooks.

ESL GRAMMAR CARDS  FOR BEGINNERS

ESL GRAMMAR CARDS FOR BEGINNERS

ESL GRAMMAR CARDS FOR BEGINNERS Teaching simple present third person singular pronouns is challenging for ESL teachers. I don’t particularly enjoy teaching this subject. To make my job easier and add a little bit fun, I have created ESL grammar cards for my fifth grade ESL students. There are 80 cards. The first twenty covers only positive sentences, the second twenty negative sentences, the third twenty questions, the fourth twenty is about exercises. The procedure works this way: students get a card, they copy the card in their notebook, they fill in the blanks in the notebook, not on the card, they write their names at the back of the card, they return the card and get a new one. You can work it out on your own way. Students finish from 4 to 10 grammar cards in one single lesson. While they are busy with their cards, I walk around the class and see how they are doing. They go crazy for this activity. It is worth the effort.
