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!

How was your spring break? (minicards)

So how was your Easter? Did you go on an egg hunt? Was the weather nice? Did you make any new friends? Did you travel abroad? Hope you answered yes to all those questions; ).

Spring break will be over soon here in Romania so here’s a handout (editable) with mini-cards to help your kids chat about their Easter holiday. You can use it with your Movers and Flyers: SpringBrkQs. Feel free to change some of the questions if they don’t suit your learners. And let me know if you think of new questions that I could add to the template.

Another cool idea for a post spring break chat is this Find Someone Who activity. It’s free and seems guaranteed to make the kids walk and talk. It’s also a great way to practise past forms.

That’s it for now. Enjoy your spring wherever you are! 🌼🌼🌼

Stop the bus!

StopTheBusHere’s a template that you can use to revise some of the vocabulary taught so far. Works well with Starters and Movers. So you can use this printable to play a version of Stop the Bus. Students work in pairs. The teacher announces the vocabulary topic to be revised (animals, vegetables, fruit, places in a city etc.) and a number of words (5 or 7 or 10) and the students write the words related to the respective category in one of the boxes on the page. The first pair to finish writing the word shouts “Stop the bus!” and everybody has to… well, stop. Students count their words, check whether they actually belong to that category: ) and whether the spelling is okay. Students get 1 point per each word they got right. Then the teacher announces another topic and the bus starts moving again: ).

Personality Adjectives – Cards

dr_jekyll_and_mr_hyde_poster_edit2Here are some cards that you can use in class if you’re teaching/revising personality adjectives. They’re great for role-plays, miming or any other vocabulary games that you might want to use.

I’d love to hear some of your ideas on how to use these.

Download the cards here: personalityadjectives.

Happy teaching!

(Liking and sharing would really help: ).

Cards – Irregular verbs

IrregularVbsCardsUse these to review or consolidate the past tense simple of irregular verbs.

Download here (black & white version only – for now: ): IrregularVbsCards.

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.

Download the black&white version here: WasWere.

And the colour version here: WasWereColour.

Liking or Sharing definitely help so please if you use these handouts, spare a Like!: )

Have a wonderful first week of school! Happy teaching!☺️💼🕶
