Sentence Word Order for EAL / ESL / ELL

(0)
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. There are verb reference pages at the beginning ( in colour) for use if vocabulary is unknown. All worksheets are in black only, so printing costs are kept to a minimum. If access to photocopying facilities is limited or unavailable, the answers to the questions could be written in a note book, enabling the worksheets to be used over and over again with different students. 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

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.

House Vocabulary Game

House Vocabulary Game

(0)
This House Vocabulary Game is a particular favourite with both native English speakers and students learning English. In my experience, young students become very keen and enthusiastic about being the first to complete their base cards with the appropriate items belonging to their particular part of the house. Older students at the initial / emergent stage of learning English would also benefit from using this resource. There are opportunities for speaking, listening and reading. The game is for 2 – 6 players and is easy to play. Each player is given a base board. The small cards are placed in the middle of the table face down. Players take turns at lifting a card, naming the item then placing it on their base board if it belongs in their part of the house. If it doesn’t, the player then replaces the card in the centre of the table face down. The winner is the first to complete his / her card. Luck and memory are involved in success so the winner isn’t always the most able student. This could be one reason for this type of game being so popular. The base boards and cards have colour coordinated borders to aid with identification. The house scenes and items used are listed below. Kitchen kettle, cooker, sink, cooker, fridge, vacuum, iron, ironing board, washing machine Living Room coffee table, settee, lamp, armchair, rug, television, plant, clock, bookshelves Bathroom toilet, basin, bath, shower, toothpaste, toothbrush, towel, shampoo Bedroom bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, dressing table, mirror, alarm clock, lamp, bunk beds, cot Garden lawnmower, tree, watering can, spade, gloves, wheelbarrow, rake, bucket, fork Garage tool box, gardening tools, paint pots, bicycle, broom, workbench, car, oilcan, tyre Included with this game are picture and word cards for learning the vocabulary used in the game. The cards can be used as a snap game (saying the names of items and reading the words as they are placed on the table) or as an individual or group matching activity

This is most suited to students at the Emergent/Consolidating stage of acquiring English as a certain level of comprehension is required.
