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.

36-week spoken English course - 30 different English topics covered! Something For Every Day!

36-week spoken English course - 30 different English topics covered! Something For Every Day!

36-week spoken English course - 30 different English topics covered! Something For Every Day! There are free versions of this course online. The difference being if you want a product full of pictures or one without pictures and lots of links to the free site you downloaded it from. Some don't mind, others are looking for a more professional image. I took a lot of time to clear away all the hyperlinks, and add photos and I am very happy with the final outcome. Book 5 covers: The ten lesson topics studied in Talk a Lot Elementary Book 1 are: Town, Food, Shopping, Health, Transport, Clothes, Work, Family, Home, and Free Time. Book 6 covers: Talk a Lot - Crime, Sport, Music, Weather, Animals, Cars, The Human Body, Colours and Numbers, Life Events, and Nature. Book 7: Elementary Handbook • General Information about Talk a Lot Courses • How to Use Talk a Lot Resources • Focus on Connected Speech • Focus on the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) • 100% Photocopiable Book 8: This books learning units are: Learning English, Films, Hospital, Books, Airport, Money, Places in the UK, Politics, Internet, and Australia. I enjoyed reading it, editing and making it as clear and clean as possible. Lots of teachers will find it really useful.
