Night Time Presentation and Visual Story Prompts, Fun Story and 31 Activities

Night Time Presentation and Visual Story Prompts, Fun Story and 31 Activities

I have collected together my night time resources to make a lovely lesson starting with a night time story, followed by things we see in the night and a night time writing prompt. I have also included a teacher guide to show teachers how to use these Photo Flash cards in 31 different teaching activities in the classroom. These activities are easy to arrange, lots of fun and will improve your students' vocabulary and memory skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the images. You could print off and laminate the images to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated images and create them into a story . The images could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

17 Blank Photocopiable Templates ESL Resource Pack + Example Called "The Dentist"

This pack contains 17 templates for creating your own worksheets, for use in lessons, for testing, or for homework. You can use them with any level – your choice of vocabulary and tenses will determine the level. The example unit would be perfect for anyone interested in the topic of teeth, health or the dentist. • This pack also includes a sample set of finished worksheets (with answers) on the topic of “Dentist”. The level is pre-intermediate to intermediate. • You don’t need to create all the worksheets for a given topic; simply choose the ones you need. The worksheets are in four categories: vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and speaking & listening. Of course, you can also adapt the worksheets and include your own activities and categories. • Remember, as the teacher, you should know the answers to the worksheets! By thinking about the answers and researching what you do not know, your teaching skills will improve. • The worksheets practise concepts and skills that are fundamental to the You Are The Course Book method of teaching, for example: discussion words, spelling statements, tense conversion, idioms, word stress, sentence stress, collocations, connected speech, discussion, and so on. • In keeping with the YATCB method, why not encourage your students to make their own activities based on these worksheets – then swap them with one another, or give them to other classes. • You can write on the blank worksheets then photocopy them for your students, or create your own templates modelled on these worksheets

Present Continuous Cards

Present Continuous Cards

This time I’ve created 150 Present Continuous Cards. The cards include 5 different types of cards aiming at revising present continuous. I hope you like this new teaching resource just as much as you did my 150 Present Simple Cards. There are 30 cards of each type and all of them contain colourful pictures and backgrounds. The first type of the cards can be used to practise short answers and includes questions with ‘is’ and ‘are’. There are no questions of this type with ‘am’ because these wouldn’t really work here. Questions such as ‘Am I feeling fine?’ seem a bit odd. The next group of cards contains wh- questions. There are also questions with ‘how’. Next, we have cards with multiple-choice sentences. There are always four answers but only one of them is correct. Some of the answers are very similar which makes the task a bit challenging and way more rewarding. The next 30 cards show sentences with gaps that need to be completed by your students. Last but not least, we have speaking cards entitled ‘Time to talk!’. Each card contains a short description of a situation and three or four questions.
