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 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.

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").

Pets included: bird, cat, dog, mouse, hamster, guinea pig, fish, parrot, turtle. The turtle is not in the preview. The cards have also a back side design.

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.



Jan 09

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.

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.

This is a revision worksheet with 4 pages which tests greetings, numbers, body parts, colours, clothes, classroom objects, holidays (festivals) and family. I used it with the 3rd and 4th grade.

It includes matching and writing exercises and a listening exercise (numbers).

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).
