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.

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: ).

Why the Blank Face?

Facial expressionsI stumbled upon this wonderful class activity complete with a free printable that can really liven up a lesson about facial expressions and emotions. I wish I had known about it during my IHCYL training course. It would have certainly made my teaching practice easier; ).

Here it is, courtesy of Dabbles & Babbleshttp://dabblesandbabbles.com/blank-faces-drawing-page/.

I would use this in the productive stage of the lesson. Students could draw various faces and then show and describe them in pairs or groups also adding reasons for the feelings they’re describing:

“She is feeling happy because…”

“He is angry because…”

Or it could be turned into a guessing game. Guess the facial expression: ).

What about you? How would you use this in class?
