Lots of FREE Great Teaching Ideas To Get ESL Students Speaking More Confidently In Class!

Lots of FREE Great Teaching Ideas To Get ESL Students Speaking More Confidently In Class!

Talk a Lot - Spoken English Course - Public Domain Book A Great New Way to Learn Spoken English Elementary Handbook • General Information about Talk a Lot Courses • How to Use Talk a Lot Resources • Focus on Connected Speech • Focus on the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) • 100% Photocopiable This handbook shows you how to use Talk a Lot materials to learn or teach spoken English, as well as providing background information and practice worksheets on related topics, such as connected speech, sentence and word stress, and the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). The Talk a Lot course objectives are very simple: • Every student talking in English • Every student listening to and understanding English • Every student thinking in English, and • Every student taking part in class Talk a Lot is structured so that every student can practise and improve English grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency, word and sentence stress, and interpersonal skills, by working in pairs, groups and one to one with the teacher. The main benefits of Talk a Lot are: • Students have to think in English during lessons in a controlled and focused way • Students learn how to memorise correct English structures naturally, without abstract and unrelated grammar lessons • Students learn how to construct eight different common verb forms, using positive, negative and question forms, as well as embedded grammar appropriate to their level. The verb forms studied are: Present Simple, Present Continuous, Past Simple, Past Continuous, Present Perfect, Modal Verbs, Future Forms, and First Conditional • Students learn many essential vocabulary words by heart, including word stress and the sounds of English • Students learn how to become more fluent when speaking in English, by joining together words in a sentence using the techniques of connected speech • Students enjoy following a simple and effective method that produces results quickly. This handbook is not intended to be an exhaustive academic work. The aim was to write a brief, helpful guide and pack of resources that would provide a way into practise and language work in the classroom, rather than a dry, analytical manual. For example, I have deliberately avoided confusing jargon when writing about connected speech. Phrases like “bilabial plosive” and “palato-alveolar approximate” – though fun to say – can be studied later, or at the student’s leisure.

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

I want to make KS2 SATs revision fun. I want it to be something students and teachers really enjoy. I have taken each of the SATs tests and combined the original test papers and the original marking schemes into PowerPoints where you ask a question and immediately see the the answer on the next slide. This teaching packs covers KS2 Maths and KS2 SATs SPAG tests (Spag is English grammar, punctuation and spelling Papers) The idea is that you can now ask a question and all your students show you the answer on their mini-whiteboards and then you discuss the answers together and see what would have got one or two points. As the students can work in pairs or small groups on the questions, they are less stressed and enjoy the whole revision process. In addition, it gives them a chance to learn about other student's strategies. This pack could be used in the classroom for whole class teaching, for small groups or at home as a great teaching resource. If you like this teaching resource, check out my teaching resources at http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk. If you like these resources, be sure to leave a nice comment. Nice comments make my day, and motivate me to write more teaching resources.

Year 6 SPAG 2016 sample papers - Questions and answers

Year 6 SPAG 2016 sample papers - Questions and answers

I love to revise grammar. I don't like needing to constantly refer between the answers and the questions to get the most out of each lesson. I decided the simplest thing was to simply combine the question paper and the marking schemes into a single document. The idea is simple - you ask a question - the children then show their answers and then you check the answers as a class against the official marking scheme answers. This helps to keep revision fun and the lessons snappy. Let me know what you think of them!

114 Urdu Writing Worksheets For Writing Practice.

114 Urdu Writing Worksheets For Writing Practice.

Welcome to the 'Let’s Write in Urdu!' pack. There are lots of ways of using this teaching pack. It could be used as writing assessment for students learning Urdu. The students could write about a topic in Urdu before starting a unit, and then write again about the topic, using the second worksheet at the end of the topic to see how much they have progressed. It could also be used as an introduction to guided writing. Students can write sentences as a class and share the sentences together and they can then write them on their own. Alternatively, students could work in pairs - one student dictates to the other what to write down about what they see in the picture. These pages could also be used to write different stories, using the pictures as a stimulus. ***** Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction **************
