Avengers mini-cards (speaking activity)

With Avengers: Endgame premiering this week, what better time to refresh your students’ knowledge about the Marvel cinematic universe?

Here’s a set of printable mini-cards especially designed in the Marvel colors to help your students engage on conversation on the topic of the Avengers movies and help them prepare for the latest one in this series. There is also a black&white version of the mini-cards included together with the suggested answers to the questions.

Have fun!

Work-related phrases and idioms – printable mini-cards

Here’s a handout that you can use to supplement work-related vocabulary in your lessons. It can be used with intermediate students, but I think it might work at the pre-intermediate level as well.

Basically, all you need to do is print this sheet on card, cut the mini-cards and use them to play vocabulary games.

Should / Shouldn’t (giving advice)

Here’s a prescription template that you can print and use in the classroom. If you’re teaching primary students, this might come in handy in a lesson on how to give advice using SHOULD and SHOULDN’T.

Pair up students and have them role play a doctor-patient dialogue using this prescription template to guide them.

Happy teaching!

What’s the matter?

PhotoHere’s a prescription printable that you can use for doctor-patient role-plays with Movers. There’s two of them on one page so hopefully that helps with the printing.

Download the handout here: Prescription.

It’s a pretty basic form but it will help the “doctors” ask the right questions and give and record the advice.

Structures that could be used in the lesson:
What’s your name?
How old are you?
What’s your address?
What’s the matter?
Where does it hurt?
Here are some pills for…
You should eat/drink/exercise…

I have some plastic stethoscopes (like the one in the photo above) that I usually use for this kind of lesson. The kids love them and they have a lot of fun giving consultations.

Hope you find this useful.
Have fun teaching!

Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade handouts

We’re celebrating Easter on Sunday here in Romania so this week is all about Easter-related activities.

Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade is only 20 minutes or so so you can fit it nicely into one of your lessons this week. Here’s the trailer.

To get kids more familiar with the characters, use this handout: EggScapadeCharacters. It’s a simple matching exercise and it helps them remember/learn the names of the animals in the story. Then you can have them guess the order in which certain events happen using this handout: OrderEvents. You can cut the stripes of paper beforehand or have them cut them in class. After they watch the short film, they check to see if they guessed the right order.

I also came up with some questions especially for my KET students (they’re quite strong learners). You can find them below:

  1. Who’s your favourite Ice Age character? Why?
  2. Imagine you lived in the Ice Age. What would you wear? What would you eat? Where would you live?
  3. Would you rather be more like Manny or more like Diego? Why?
  4. Have you ever seen an egg hatching?
  5. Have you ever been on an egg hunt? How many eggs did you find?

I hope you’ll find all this useful. I’d love to get any feedback on the handouts.

Like&share!

Easter Board Game (Movers level)

1Hello! Since we’re going to celebrate Easter this weekend here in Romania and the kids (and the teachers!) are a couple of days away from a two-week spring break (oh-god-yes), I thought I’d make an Easter-related board game that involves more movement and is hopefully more fun. Also, this time it’s in Word, so you can edit it if you want.

So without further ado, here it is: Easter Board Game finalI plan on using it with my stronger Movers. Hope they’ll have fun with it.

Well, that’s it. Don’t forget to like and share and if you have any suggestions, I’d be more than happy to read them.

Have a great spring!🌼🌼🌼

 

Past Tense Practice

Here are some cards that you can cut and use to revise Wh- questions in the past. You can first ask your students to write down the questions using the words on the mini-cards, give some feedback and then use the questions to start a conversation in pairs or small groups.

Download here: Questions Past.

Happy teaching & enjoy the summer!🏝🏝🏝 🌞 🌞 🌞
