A worksheet I've made for teaching the letters K, W and Y which don't exist in the Portuguese alphabet.

 

My 1st Grade students asked me to teach them these letters (the "English Letters", as they called them ) and I decided to create an activity where they can learn to recognize the letters in words. Besides, they can also revise some of the vocabulary dealt with in English class, because they already know most of the words I chose.

 

The instructions for the exercises are written in Portuguese, but you can easily change them, if you want. Here they are in English:

1- Watch the words and circle the letters K, W and Y.

2- Match the words with the pictures.

3- Colour the paint buckets with the right colour. Colour the pictures.

This is a simpler version of the worksheet above, without the pictures to match. I've made this version for my special education students.

A worksheet with two tasks:

First the students have to solve the code to find out who the pictures belong to (what family members are they). Second, they have to solve the crossword puzzle. They can colour the pictures at the end of the tasks.

This is a listening exercise on age. Give a copy of the worksheet and four numbers. The students should stick the numbers in the right square, according to what they hear. I included the four numbers in black and white (if you want your students to colour them afterwards) and already coloured.

 

I will make the mp3 file of this exercise here available as soon as possible. However, you can also do this listening exercise without the file - you can tell the ages yourself. As an example: "Hi. I'm Sarah. I'm 6." (this is the kind of language in the audio file).

A worksheet I created to exercise my students on the written form of colours. First they have to find the words in the wordsearch (they have to recognize a colour when they see it written). You can tell them to colour the word with its colour (e.g. if they find "RED", they should mark it with a red crayon).

 

The second exercise is a crossword puzzle. At this stage, they should remember the written word to be able to make the crosswords. If they are still insecure, they can always look at the exercise above to guide them.

 

The last exercise is only about telling the students' favourite colour. You can practice this orally first and then they must write it. They have two children to guide them in the answer.

 

I think this is a good way to exercise the written form of colours, because it's funny for them, they enjoy solving this kind of puzzles and so they become more motivated and learn better!

 

Colours included: blue, yellow, brown, orange, green, black, red, white, purple, pink and grey (both in the wordsearch and in the crossword puzzle).

A revision worksheet that covers many topics: flags and English Speaking Countries, greetings, body parts, 3 holidays of the year, classroom language, numbers and colours.

 

In some exercises, the students have to listen in order to choose the correct picture. Here, the teacher chooses the item that he/she wants to test. The exercises are editable, so you can change the items easily in order to test whatever vocabulary you want.

 

For the exercise on classroom language, I used some of the flashcards I posted here some time ago. Check it, maybe it's useful for you to know what the pictures stand for.

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.
