Because love should be the strength that moves us when teaching our students. And because sharing keeps us moving to reach them... Here you can find ressources I make for teaching English, mainly to children.

This is a worksheet I give to my younger students when teaching some of the countries where English is spoken as first language.

They should colour the flags of the UK, the USA, Australia and Canada according to the code. Each flag has its name above it.

This is a worksheet I use for the 1st Grade for teaching numbers. You can also use it to teach some shapes. The students must join the numbers with the shapes, trace them and colour.

Here is a list of the numbers from 1 to 100 and some tips to learn them in an easier way. I've made a Portuguese and an English version.


On the second page there is a crossword puzzle where the students must find the hidden sentence (it's "Numbers are funny."). The last exercise is a wordsearch. After finding the numbers, the students must write them next to the right number.

A worksheet for the 1st and 2nd Grade to revise vocabulary about the numbers, the colours, the classroom objects, the parts of the body and the clothes.


The exercises are all listening exercises. The students must listen carefully to what the teacher says and colour or mark (depending on the exercise) the items which the teacher mentions.

A simple worksheet dealing with the subject and object pronouns. First you have a table for your students to learn the pronouns and then some exercises to practice them, where you have to change the underlined expressions for a subject or an object pronoun.

This is a minibook I've made to my students after telling them the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle.

The students should colour the pictures in their minibook according to the colours of the story.




I've added the page numbers for the minibook and uploaded it again. It's in .pdf format.

You can use a month calendar and hang it on the classroom's wall. With these stickers you can ask students what's the weather like on each class and choose one of them to stick the corresponding picture on the calendar. It's a very good idea to make students learn the weather.

This is a PowerPoint-Presentation on pets, farm animals and wild animals. You can hear the sound of some animals. Unfortunately I couldn't find sounds for every animal, but you can hear the sounds in most of them.

The students find it fun when they hear the sounds.

I made these animal cards following a lesson about wild animals. I made groups of 4/5 children and gave a set of cards to each group. Each group had also a happy and a sad smile made of cardboard. Each person in the group should pick the happy smile and an animal that he/she likes and make a sentence like this, for example: "I like lions.". All students in the group do this with an animal they like. Afterwards they repeat the process, but this time with the sad smile and picking up an animal they DON'T like. For example: "I don't like frogs".


If the students aren't familiar with the plural forms yet, I help them, writing the plural form on the back of the cards. You can also write the target sentences on the blackboard, drawing a happy and a sad smile to become clearer.


This set of cards has not only wild animals, but also pets and farm animals.

Vocabulary included:

Wild animals - bear, camel, frog, giraffe, hippo, kangaroo, dolphin, elephant, lion, monkey, snake.

Pets - dog, cat, mouse, hamster, parrot, bird, fish, guinea pig, turtle.

Farm animals - chicken, cow, duck, goat, horse, pig, rabbit, rooster, sheep, turkey.

I use these flashcards to introduce some classroom language. First I show the students each flashcard, say what I want them to learn with that picture (if they are already used to hear some of this language in class, I ask them what they think we could say in that situation). The students repeat the sentences as a group.


Then the students or me stick the flashcards on the classroom's walls and we play a game. I ask one student at a time to come to the front of the class and I say a sentence represented in one of the pictures we have just dealt with. The student must look for the flashcard and run to it, showing me what picture I am referring to.

The children just love this game!


On the next class, they can colour the sentences in pairs (or individually, it depends on how big is your class) and hang them next to the corresponding picture. The flashcards stay on the walls till the end of the year to remember students to use that language whenever they need it - and NOT use their mother tongue!


Most of the pictures are taken from a set of flashcards from Karen (ESLprintables). I adapted the flashcards to my needs, adding some pictures and taking out others and the sentences.

Vocabulary included (as it appears in the file):

- May I come in, please?

- See you next lesson!

- Close the door, please!

- Open the door, please!

- Sit down, please!

- Stand up, please!

- May I clean the board?

- Put your hand up!

- May I borrow a pen? or - Do you have a pen?

- Be quiet, please!

- How do you say "livro" in English? (answer: book)

- May I sharpen my pencil?
