A sheet for recording students’ completion of the sheets is included. Answer sheets are also provided, giving the option for peer correction.

When the worksheets are completed, a suggested follow up activity could be one student miming a selected action from the illustrations in the worksheets. The other students then try to guess what the student is doing. Depending on the levels of language acquisition, students can use the models of the ordered sentences to express verbally in a sentence what is being mimed, or just provide a one word answer. The student providing the correct answer then gets a chance to choose a different activity and mime to the class. This is usually a fun activity enjoyed by all.

Game (2-6 players) The aim of the game is to get the most sets of verbs. (A set consists of the present, past and past participle of one verb.) Mix the cards. Each player is dealt 9 cards and the remaining cards are placed face down in a pile in the middle of the table. The top card is turned face up and placed beside the pile on the table. Players look at their cards. If they have a set, they place that on the table. (This counts as 1 point) The player(s) then draw cards to make up 9 cards in their hands. The person on the left of the dealer starts, he/she can either pick the card that is turned over or take the top card. He/She then has to discard, so that he he/she always has 9 cards. If the player can make a set of 3 cards, he places the set on the table.(As soon as a player thinks he/she has a set, it is suggested that players show their sets to other players to ensure that the set has the correct verbs.) He/she must then draw cards from the pile to maintain 9 in his/her hand. Continue play until the pack on the table has been used. Then turn the pack over and start using the cards again. When all cards have been used from the table, players then take turns to select an unseen card from the player on their left. This continues until all sets of verbs has been made.

Alphabet Boats Match Lower Case with Upper case

(0)
Alphabets boats is a fun way for students to learn the upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet. This could be used with EAL students and would be particularly useful if the student’s home language has a different script. Resources designed for EAL students are of course suitable for use with all students. The activity involves matching the lower case letters with the uppercase letters which are displayed on the boats. There are two sets of lower case letters. One set is in colour and colour coordinated with the boats. The other set is in black and for use when students are more competent at completing the task with the coloured letters. If this is given as an individual task to a new arrival, the reference page ( displaying upper and lower cases side by side) will enable students to successfully complete the task. For a student new to English, this also allows time out from listening to a language which he/she doesn’t understand and it is a useful activity which can be successfully completed. If this is done as a group activity, there is a lot of scope for discussion and reinforcement of colour vocabulary plus the opportunity for students to learn from their peers. E.g. Do you have a green letter? Do you have a light blue boat? Can I have the purple boat? etc
