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.

A worksheet to learn/revise the written form of some sea animals. The students have to cut and paste the words under the right picture.

 

First, you can ask students to cut the words and put them under the right sea animals without glue. Then each student must say a full sentence, saying which sea animal it is (e.g.: "It's a octopus."). After you see if all the words are in the correct place, the students can glue them and colour the animals.

I've made a set of cards with pets useful to play the game "Go Fish". Each student receives 4 cards at the beginning of the game. The aim is either to get a set of 4 cards with the same pet or a set of 4 cards with the same colour.

 

To play, the 1st student should ask another colleague for a card (eg. "A dog" -  if he is trying to make the set with the 4 dogs - or "A blue (cat)" - if he is trying to make the set of 4 blue pets). If the other student doesn't have that card, the 1st student has "to fish" one card from the ones previously spread on the table (face down). Depending on the students' level and/or what you are teaching, you can ask them to ask for the card with a complete sentence (e.g. "Do you have a blue cat?" or "I would like a blue cat.", etc.).

 

If he "fishes" the card he asked for, he continues playing, asking another card to anyone. If he doesn't "fish" the card, it's next student's turn to play. The first one to get a complete set of 4 cards wins.

 

You can also play a kind of "Uno" with these cards. Here you can tell the students to say what's on the card they lay on the table to play (e.g."Blue cat" or if the students are older, you can make them to build a sentence, like, for example,  "It's a blue cat").

These are some songs to teach animals I created, sung to familiar tunes, such as "Frère Jacques". Some you can use as simple chants or sing to a tune you want.

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.

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.

An activity to do after telling the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle. Instructions are included on page 6. Briefly, the students have to organise the animals according to the story and then stick them in the squares, coloring them according to their colour in the story. This story is good for introducing colours and/or animals.

 

If you want to hear the author reading the story, click on this link (there are different versions from the story - the version in the link has a "teacher", but my book has a "monkey" instead). There is also a good song to learn with this story. Version 1 (with children singing and making gestures); Version 2 (different tune, with an adult as a model).
