Cards for Early Finishers

EarlyFinishersI designed these cards with Starter kids in mind but I think they can work just fine with Movers as well. I use them with early finishers. If they finished the task they were working on, they pick a card from the deck and do what it says on it (all the activities on these cards are writing activities).

Just print them on card, cut around the dotted line, put them in a deck and keep them in the classroom. Download them here: EarlyFinishers.

Hope they help!

Happy teaching!😏👓🎒

Was or Were?

WasWereColourHere’s a little board game to help your students review the past simple of the verb To Be. It’s very controlled practice and it can be used as a consolidation stage before moving on to freer practice. First students can play the board game in groups and then they can write their own sentences using “was” and “were”. I designed this mainly with the affirmative form in mind, but you can definitely extend it and have the students come up with the negative or interrogative forms of the sentences on the board.

how-to worksheet

This is similar to the worksheet I posted earlier about the steps of decorating a Christmas tree. However, this one can be used for any kind of “how-to” writing activity that you might want to organize in the classroom. Get your students to focus on the steps of a writing activity with the help of this very straightforward worksheet: HowToSteps.

Steps to decorate a Christmas tree

So how do you do it? Do you get the tinsel out first and get all tangled? Do you start with the bells and then the angels and the shiny baubles? Do you hang the lights on the branches at the end?

Here’s a worksheet to help you plan that better. Use it to plan your tree decorating step by step. Let us know how it goes: ).

Dear Santa…

There can never be enough templates for letters to Santa so here’s a cute looking one courtesy of Eugenia aka Santa’s helper and Handouts collaborator. All you have to do now is print it and start writing your letter to Santa. Download it here in pdf format: ToSanta.

Or maybe you want to save it until after the holidays and use it as a Thank You note to Santa. It would make a nice writing activity for the first day of school, don’t you think?: )

Either way, let us know how it goes.

Keep it merry!: )

Download worksheet here: Find Someone Who – Xmas.

I designed this worksheet with my adult students in mind. However, I think it would definitely work with young adults as well and – why not make your life easier – even with fourth and fifth graders. It’s something that you can use in January (seems so far away but it will definitely sneak upon us) to get everyone to share stuff about their winter holiday.

Don’t forget to like and share!

Happy holidays!: ) 🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎁
