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.

These are some cards I've designed about the body to play "Memory". You put all the cards face down on a table and the students should turn over two of them. If they match (i.e. they have both the picture and the corresponding word) they keep the cards, if not they put the cards back where they were. Try to encourage your students to say the words as they turn the cards.

 

 To make the cards: You should cut each card with the front cover and fold it in the middle, then stick both sides and laminate.

This schoolyear I taught body parts to a class using "The Bath Song", from Super Simple Songs. They listened to the song, sang and acted it out in the classroom. It was funny!

Then I wondered how I could practice the body parts and the language in the song. That's how this game was born!

 

There are 2 A4 pages, which glued under each other, make a relatively large board game (near A3 size). I put it on the blackboard and made teams with 4 or 5 students (it depends on the size of your class, of course). Then a member of each team comes to the front, throws a big dice I have brought to the classroom, says the number shown (in English, of course!) and I move the counter on the board. Then the student must say "I can wash my..." + the body part he/she landed on. If the answer is correct, the team can move one space forward, if not, they must return one space.

 

Of course you can change the rules as you want. You can have a rule where the student can ask the team for help, for example, but the final sentence must be his/hers, even if it's just the repetition of someone else's sentence. That way every student says a sentence.

 

For younger students, you can also help or ask only the body part.

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.

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.
