Morning song!

Morning song!

I noticed my children were coming into my class in a morning fairly tired, so I decided to create something to help them wake up and bring a smile to their faces. This is sung every morning and the class love it! I have had parents speak to me explaining their child won't stop singing it at home and they love it! I feel as though this is a great idea for every class as it does get the children ready to learn! More songs will be made for each half term.

Introduction to Books and Reading Bundle (ESOL/ESL/EAL/EFL)

Introduction to Books and Reading Bundle (ESOL/ESL/EAL/EFL)

This is the perfect bundle to introduce the library at your school or college and encourage learners to start reading on a regular basis. These resources allow learners to identify the English terms for different parts of books, get to know their school/college/local library and then set about a regular reading habit recording their reading and reviewing what they read. Designed for ESOL learners this is a resource I use every year to ensure learners get into the habit of reading in English in order to progress their language skills.

Simple and clear reading record template that can be printed double sided and form an ongoing record of your learners' reading.

Book Terms and Meanings Cut Out and Matching Activity (ESOL/EAL/ESL/EFL/Literacy/SLD)

Book Terms and Meanings Cut Out and Matching Activity (ESOL/EAL/ESL/EFL/Literacy/SLD)

A fun matching activity in 3 styles. Match the terms about books (author, blurb, index etc) to their meanings either by using the colour or black and white cut out cards (designed in a random order to let the students do the cutting without getting the answers!) or on a standard worksheet where they just draw a line between the terms and their meanings. Written for entry level ESOL or literacy learners as a starter for a lesson on reading, books or types of text, I find it works well as an introduction to books when starting on library work, books reviews or reading schemes, If you'd like more reading based activities check out my other reading resources in my shop here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/islaflood

ESL - EAL Hobbies -Grammar/Vocabulary Recap -Unit 4 lesson 5 (lesson + exercises) (No Prep)

Teaching grammar and vocabulary to beginners in ESL is not always easy. By the time we complete a Unit, many students will have forgotten important vocabulary and grammar points! So consolidation of the knowledge is absolutely vital! How about having all the grammar and vocabulary in one place with explanations, exercises and feedback? This flexible resource will help you teach young adults and adults about the main grammatical points for beginners. You can select which point you want to consolidate by simply the content page or just follow the order of the lesson You could use it as a review, grammatical introduction or even homework to consolidate your students’ knowledge about: Vocabulary: Vacations Weather Hobbies Days of the week Extreme sports Movies TV programs Grammar: Suggestions Likes/dislikes Present continuous Each slide of the 31-slide powerpoint comes with notes to help you guide your students. You will find a wide range of activities (filling-gaps, matching-up, answering questions, reordering activity, labelling, reading, word search…) and allow them to work at their own pace. All the exercises are corrected to save you time. You will also get the handout with 10 pages so that students can keep a written track of their learning. Have fun teaching grammar and vocabulary!

ESL - EAL Hobbies -Movies, invitation -Unit 4 lesson 3 (lesson + exercises) (No Prep)

Teaching about hobbies is always fun with Beginners in English. The question is where do we start? How can we be sure that we have integrated all the vocabulary and grammar relevant to their level? How about having the context, the vocabulary and the grammar in just one place with explanations, exercises and feedback? This flexible resource will help you teach young adults and adults about movies, invitations (accepting or refusing), the present continuous. There is also a review about extreme sports, use of “can”, “like”, “want”. This resource is aimed at helping teachers to complement their textbook or to give enough material for those who are not lucky enough to have access to ESL textbooks/material. The resource contains a powerpoint with 28 slides with clear explanations at the bottom of each one of them to give you a step-by-step explanation about the progression of the lesson. The exercises are corrected to save you time! The resource also contains an activity booklet for students with 11 pages so that they keep a record of their learning. The approach is communicative to allow students to develop their speaking skills but it also contains reading and writing activities to consolidate their grammatical skills and improve their writing skills. You will find different types of activities to allow a greater differentiation in your class: - A recap about extreme sports, abilities (can), wishes (verb to want) and likes (verb to like) - A speaking (questions in pairs about movies) - A conversation with questions - A blind test about different movie soundtracks - A matching up between movies/titles - A matching up between movies/genres - A review about opinions, likes and dislikes and reasons - A speaking activity in pairs - A reading about accepting/refusing an invitation - A vocabulary point about suggestions and refusing/accepting an invitation - A writing activity - A grammar point about the present continuous - 3 exercises to practise (choosing the right option, filling gap and writing according to the picture) - More vocabulary about movies with definitions to match up and a grid to fill in - A review of objectives Any Question Mail me at carolinemusserotte@teacherlocker.com Check previous lessons of this unit below : Unit 4 Lesson 1 Hobbies -verbs play/do/go -days of the week Unit 4 Lesson 2 Hobbies -suggestions-abilities (can/can’t)

Teachers TV: Lesson Starters: Primary Writing Starters: Charlotte's Web

Teachers TV: Lesson Starters: Primary Writing Starters: Charlotte's Web

This is a Jackanory-style reading of the chapter ‘Bad News’ from the classic American children’s book Charlotte’s Web by E.B.White. It’s taken from early on in the story when Wilbur the pig is only just beginning to get to know Charlotte the Spider. There are writing opportunities for developing dialogue with correct punctuation, as well as writing your own animal story. Teachers may also want to use the extract as a prompt to persuasive writing, exploring the pros and cons of eating meat, as ,of course, the bad news is that Wilbur is being fattened up to be killed and eaten. An old sheep is the one who delivers the bad news to Wilbur. He cannot believe that the people he knows and trusts could possibly be thinking of killing him. He has a fit of hysterics proclaiming that he certainly doesn’t want to die! By contrast Charlotte the Spider remains calm, and reassures Wilbur that somehow she will save him.

Teachers TV: Lesson Starters: Primary Writing Starters - Double Act

This is an extract from the award-winning dramatisation of Jacqueline Wilson’s much loved book Double Act. It depicts the first week at a new school for twins Ruby & Garnet. There are plenty of writing opportunities for KS2 children to create their own school stories or versions of the twins’ experiences. Role play and hot-seating based on the extract could also be used to prompt writing about the twins’ feelings about their change of circumstances. The background is that Ruby and Garnet have moved to the country with Dad and his new girlfriend Rose. Homesick and hating the new family set up, they hit on the bright idea of behaving so badly at school that they’ll be expelled and sent back to live with their Gran. Needless to say things don’t quite go according to plan and the twins have to face the consequences.
