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.

After presenting the two PowerPoints about the flags of some English Speaking Countries and some attractions in the UK and the USA, I've decided to test my students about the 2nd presentation, i.e., the attractions in the UK and the USA. So, I've made these cards.

 

You can use them in several ways. You can make a memory game with pictures and words, only pictures (you have to print the cards twice) or you can make a class activity in the blackboard (like I did).

 

I stick the UK and the USA flag on the blackboard, spread the pictures on a table and ask students, one at a time, to come to the table, choose a picture and decide whether it belongs to the USA or the UK. This is easier, mainly for younger students, because they don't have to know the name of what the picture represents (you can tell it out loud to the class). The classmates then decide if the picture is under the right picture or not.

 

If you want to test if they know what the picture represents, you can also ask students to stick the card with the word under the right picture.

With this Power-Point Presentation you can present some English Speaking Countries to your students with the flag of each country. It includes the following countries: Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, UK, Ireland, Wales, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa.

 

This PowerPoint is good to explain how the flag of the UK is formed (it has a slide which explains the union of the flags) and at the end of the presentation I included a world map showing the most spoken languages of the world and the corresponding countries. With this the students can become aware of the importance of English in the world.

  

After showing this PowerPoint, I show this one, to show them some of the attractions in the UK and the USA.

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.
