ESOL, or Primary English, Rhyming Words - hundreds sorted into vowel sounds.

Rhyming words are important to phonics, and they help learners of English, young and old, gain the sense of sound of a word, the music and the rhythms. These are all single syllable words covering each of the vowels, as shown by the file names. I print these on cards, and use them in games. Share them out to a small group of learners, someone picks a word, and others find words from their pile that rhyme. Or print them bigger on flashcards for class use. (In Word, for easy editing.) Or use them as banks of words to use in 'Hangman'. The opportunities are endless. Enjoy!

Children’s Illustrated Poetry Book - Level 5 book 1

Children’s Illustrated Poetry Book - Level 5 book 1

It is the shame of our times that the rhymes and verse most quoted, recited and trawled up again and again are on the most part hundreds of years old. By now children should be skipping to rhymes other than sixteenth century accounts of the black death. I is my hope to put a more modern group of verse into the public domain. Illustrated rhyming poems for young (and old) children to sing recite and skip to. All royalty free and can be copied, scrawled on walls, danced to and generally treated as if they were something to be enjoyed rather than just scary poetry. These poetry books are arranged in groups of difficulty ranging from 1 to 5. The easiest is group 1, the hardest group 5. They can all be spoken aloud with ease and there are no offensive words. They have a bigger range than the story books and should be read before deciding which age groups are suitable in your situation, some in 4 and 5 range have complex emotional ideas.It is the shame of our times that the rhymes and verse most quoted, recited and trawled up again and again are on the most part hundreds of years old.

English Lateral Thinking Problems. Find the 'Missing Link'

English Lateral Thinking Problems. Find the 'Missing Link'

This is a fun end of the day activity which can be used for a whole class. The idea is that the children are given the two end words and have to work out which middle (or link) word connects both words to create a new word or phrase. For example: Cauliflower ? Ache ‘Cauliflower blank, blank ache?’ Which word goes in between ‘cauliflower’ and ‘ache’ to make two separate phrases? Solution: Cauliflower Ear Ache This activity encourages the children to think laterally and to draw on their general knowledge to solve the problems. To help you these clues have been written in alphabetical order. These problems are an ideal end of the day activity and can be written on the board or simply read out. For younger children or those that are stuck, try putting the first letter of the link word in to help them. This resource contains over 300 different problems. Some will make even the brightest children think

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.
