Verbs - Present, Past and Past Participle

(0)
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. The winner is the player with the most points or sets.

Are your students needing to improve their English word order? These worksheets and the suggested follow up activity will help with both written and spoken sentence construction. The 17 worksheets provide illustrations with words provided, in a jumbled order, for making sentences to describe the pictures. Students have the opportunity to rearrange the words and write a sentence describing what is happening in each picture. An additional benefit to completing this task, is that English vocabulary can also be increased because of the use of the visuals depicting the activities to be described. There are 68 sentences to be completed and an optional front cover for use if the worksheets are to be made into booklets. Star Wars characters have been added to make the worksheets more appealing. 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.

Phonics CVC words with pictures for EAL/ESL/ELL students

(0)
Having taught English as an Additional Language (EAL) for many years, I am only too aware of the challenges facing EAL students when doing phonic work. This includes the difficulties when trying to hear or distinguish between sounds and problems when trying to reproduce sounds because of only learning the sounds of their first languages. An additional hindrance to progress is that students are at times presented with phonic work resources without illustrations / pictures. In other phonic work resources, that do have illustrations, an additional barrier is that students sometimes have difficulty identifying items. For this reason, I have used photographs where possible, so that items/ people are easily identified. This booklet provides a combined approach of vocabulary building and teaching sounds through the use of cvc phonic words. There are worksheets and games which provide opportunities for developing reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. There are: • reference pages with words and pictures • cut and stick letters to make words • word completion worksheets for initial sound, middle sound, and complete word Activities include: • Picture and word matching • Sorting words on a chart • Snap cards with words • Dominoes • Board game • I have.. Who has..? game (48 cards) • Bingo games ( 15 picture base cards and 15 word base cards) All worksheets, activities and games are designed to introduce, teach and consolidate the targeted vocabulary. The targeted vocabulary contained in this book: Cat, hat, bat, mat, rat, van, man, pan, jar, jam, bag, cap, car, Hen, men, ten, pen, leg, net, peg, bed, Zip, six, bin, fin, fig, lid, pig, bib, kid, wig, pin, Dot, rod, box, fox, log, cot, Jug, sun, gun, nut, hut, bus, mug, cup, bun This is a printable book. As mentioned in the title, this resource is suitable for use with EAL / ESL / ELL students and native English speakers.
