130 ESL Worksheets - Entry and Intermediate Levels - Come complete with Answers! Great Homework!

I sell these two together at a reduced rate - Buy these and save some money. ESL Worksheets Book 1: 60 Entry Level worksheets for English lessons with answers This book brings together some of the very best worksheets for teachers and students of English. These worksheets have been written by an experienced English language teacher and used in English classes with learners from a wide variety of countries. At the back of the book is a short collection of fun classroom games that have been similarly tried and tested. Some may be familiar while others are original. In publishing descriptions of these games we are not in any way claiming credit for inventing them or owning them - our aim has been to collect together games that work and get a great response from students. Book 2: The second ESL resource book (Intermediate Resources) While the first book was aimed primarily at Entry Level students, this one is aimed at higher level students, either Intermediate Level or Level 1 (ESOL Core Curriculum), depending on how you choose to label them. There are also a few worksheets for practising more basic skills, such as the two Writing Skills worksheets. However, most of the material reflects the higher level, and will provide a wealth of stimulating lessons for students who are starting to become more independent in their learning. With this in mind we have included a brand new section - Test Your Research Skills. Here you will find quizzes on a range of topics that require students to go and do some research, using a library facility, encyclopaedia (whether in CD Rom or old fashioned book form!), or even the internet...
Year 6 SPAG Revision Pack! Hundreds of questions from the 2016, 2015 and 2014 papers

Year 6 SPAG Revision Pack! Hundreds of questions from the 2016, 2015 and 2014 papers

(0)
I love to teach KS2 English grammar, punctuation and spelling. I make it into a game. The students see the question and then answer them on a mini whiteboard. I sometimes put them into pairs or teams to discuss their ideas. Then I show them the answers. We discuss the different answers together. I hated having to have the answers and questions separately and so I have combined the different question and answer papers into a single presentation. This presentation also tells them what would have been acceptable or unacceptable answers. The tests are differentiated so there are Level 3-5 tests and Level 6 tests. The students should try to do them all, to both consolidate and extend their learning. These KS2 SPAG Revision test materials will make learning more fun and the students more motivated to achieve. You will notice in the sample 2016 tests, there is now a single test for all students, which explains why there is no separate tests for levels 3-5 and level 6. Please take the time to to look at these resources and comment on them. For more teaching resources, please visit http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk.

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won’t last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.

189 Reading Worksheets, 36 Reading Books + ppt versions + KS1 and KS2 Creative Reading Scheme

I have further edited Levels 1 to levels 4 so there are now reading questions relating to every slide. I have mixed up all the original Thinking Hat colours and done away with black and white as I had teachers who felt these were not appropriate in a primary classroom and relaunched it all as Thinking Scarves - I hope you like the changes and leave me a nice comment below! I believe I have created the ultimate guided reading and poetry teaching resource for teachers. Along with a complete KS1 and KS2 Thinking Hats Reading teaching resource, this pack also includes 189 general reading worksheets and 36 levelled guided reading books. I also took the time to convert all the books into .ppt (old version of PowerPoint) so that as well as printing out the books, you can now show all the books directly on the interactive whiteboard, to build up whole class reading skills. The books vary from level 1 (beginner readers) to level 5 (teenager and adult readers). The worksheets can be used for pretty much any book, so even when you have finished reading these great books, the reading worksheets will still be useful for many years to come! The 189 reading worksheets are differentiated and some a replicated between different year groups. I am confident you will be pleased with this purchase. It would also be great for any World Book Day ideas or teaching resources. It could also be used for national poetry day or book week. If you would like to see more of my teaching resources, please visit http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk If you like the resources, then please leave me a nice comment as this means a lot to me!
