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.

I've created this activity for my 1st and 2nd Grades. This activity is done after listening to the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

 

You may decide if you let your students make the caterpillar on their own (and here you see if they can remember the order of the food in the story), or you can make a listening activity, where students cut the food (2nd page) and you say the day of the week and the food they should stick on the caterpillar.

 

In my first experience with this activity, I tried the listening activity and it was a bit confusing, because they simply didn't listen to me and almost everyone knew the sequence and wanted to glue everything even before I said anything... so, by experience, I think it's better to let them make the caterpillar on their own. If someone has questions about a day/food you can always do the listening activity.

 

 

Note: Personally I don't find some of the food the caterpillar eat on Saturday very interesting and important to teach, so I changed this food for "piece of chocolate cake, lollipop, ice-cream, piece of pie and cheese".

These are 12 different cards to play "Bingo". Your students can practice 3 topics at the same time: fruits, colours and numbers. You call a fruit, a colour or a number each time and the students who have what you say in their card should mark it.

 

You can also choose just one topic and leave the others out. There are more fruits than colours or numbers in each card, because this was the main topic I was dealing with when making the cards. But you can change the cards to suit your needs (the .doc file is editable). 

 

If you want the pictures to teach the fruits, I have them as flashcards. Just click here.

These are the templates of the frogs I made with felt to act out the story The Frog Family. In the last page you can see the photos of the final work.

 

You can see how I planned to work with this story here (written in Portuguese).

Este post é especialmente para os meus colegas que frequentaram comigo a Formação Online - 1º e 2º anos. Esta foi a apresentação de PowerPoint que usei na sessão presencial, onde descrevo as actividades que realizei, focando a história The Frog Family.

 

Vou depois também colocar aqui os moldes dos sapos em feltro, caso alguém se queira aventurar em costuras

Espero que vos seja útil. Obrigada a todos pelo feedback tão positivo  Qualquer coisa que precisem, comuniquem.

This is a special "Mother´s Day" card, which transforms itself in a house. The students draw themselves with their mother under "Me and Mummy" and write their names in the box under "With love,".

 

Cut the rectangle and the roof (where is written "Our home"). Fold both sides to the inside (like a window) and glue the roof at the top. The students should decorate their "home" outside.

This is a craft I've made to my students for them to give to their mothers on "Mother's Day". They must cut the petals and glue them under the circle in the middle to make a flower. You can give them a stick or a straw for them to hold it.

 

To have a personal touch, the students can write "I LOVE YOU" on the 3 petals above "Happy Mother's Day". They can also write their names.

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.

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).

I use this activity with the youngest students (1st or 2nd Graders). 

 

I give them a sheet with a boy or a girl (I usually give the boys the sheet with the boy and the girls the sheet with the girl). The students must cut the body parts and put the body together again in another sheet of paper. You can elicit the body parts as they go along.
