Where is the Easter Bunny - prepositions using colourful semantics

Use colourful semantics to describe where the Easter Bunny is in relation to different objects.

Build you own sentence worksheets and NO PREP circle to answer worksheets.

PLUS Make a scene, reading comprehension.

Colourful semantics is an exciting language intervention that indirectly works on developing a child’s grammar through the use of:

•Spoken sentences

•Answering W/H questions

•Use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives

•Story telling skills

•Written sentences and language comprehension

Colourful semantics works particularly well in the special education classroom, helping students with difficulty in understanding language to compose sentences.

These worksheets are designed to give students support to develop writing and composition skills. The sentence strips at the top of each worksheet demonstrate the sentence structure

Easter Around the World - Research Activities

Easter Around the World - Research Activities

Do you want to broaden your pupils’ knowledge of the world while working on their research skills?

This resource is really easy to use in your classroom – there are 16 printable worksheets which cover 15 countries and include a blank sheet if there is a specific country you would like included that is not in the selection.

Pupils can then undertake their own research (at home or in class) to find out more about the Easter traditions in these countries.

Pupils are asked to
• find out what Easter is called in the country
• draw and colour the country’s flag
• write how Easter is celebrated in the country
• add a picture (drawn or printed) to illustrate how Easter in celebrated there

The countries included are:
• Bermuda
• Brazil
• Bulgaria
• France
• Germany
• Greece
• Hungary
• Indonesia
• Italy
• the Netherlands
• Norway
• Poland
• Scotland
• Spain
• Sweden

This is great way for pupils to research other cultures. All the countries have been chosen as they have a special way to celebrate Easter - my favourite is Bermuda with their kites!

On completion, pupils could present their findings to the class or they could be displayed for the whole school to see.

Pupils would also love to be shown YouTube clips of these celebrations and could even try to recreate some of them… I’d love to hear if any classes make their own kites!

ESL - SPRING Vocabulary Taboo Game

Play this ESL SPRING Vocabulary Taboo game and have some fun!

Playing games and having fun is when learning really happens in ESL class. I love to play the game Taboo with my students. ESL taboo is a game that is easy to modify and use with beginners and advanced students alike.

Your students will learn a lot of new and useful vocabulary while playing this fun speaking game.

This ESL SPRING Vocabulary Taboo game includes:

40 different Taboo game cards to create a deck that you will print and cut out for as many teams as you need (black and white + color versions provided). I like to laminate them, punch holes and hook the cards together with a keyring. Talk about years to come of no prep activities!

Game instructions for both beginner and advanced students.

Object of the game:

One player tries to get his teammate to guess the word at the top of a card. The player must give clues, but he can't use any of the Taboo words in his description. The taboo words are those written beneath the word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed, and the team with the most points wins.
