Ever tried to play games with kids in English?It can be a fun treat!But what about when the child doesn’t even know how to say hello?In this case, trying to play games or sing songs can be just plain frustrating.It can’t be denied—teaching English to children is nothing like teaching adults! 5 Creative Ways to Teach Children  Through Fun Activities1. Art ProjectsArt is a fantastic way to get your young students excited and interested in a variety of lessons to reinforce different vocabulary.The art project that goes with this lesson should either come at the end of the class or at the beginning of the following class after a brief review of the vocabulary. Students can draw pictures independently, but you should walk around the room and encourage them to talk to you about their work.2. Active GamesYou’ve probably already witnessed the awesome power of kinesthetic learning in the classroom, and active games can be a great way to get beginners up and moving. One of the best for beginners is Simon Says, or a variant thereof.Simon Says can be a very useful way to reinforce new vocabulary while also upping the energy. That’s why it’s a great choice either at the beginning or in the middle of a class.3. Singing SongsSongs are a fantastic mnemonic device for new vocabulary, and the Internet is a wealth of different song ideas. The best time to use a song is once the vocabulary has already been introduced. Some songs are simpler, ideal for using the same day or the same week that the vocabulary is introduced.4. LabelingLabeling can be a great way to remember new vocabulary. We already discussed a bit how labeling can be used during an art project, but you can also use labeling in a classroom or with photographs.If you’re trying to teach the names of different things in the classroom, tasking your students with creating labels for them can be a great way to get them up and moving—and speaking! Once the labels are created, be sure to laminate them. You can use them with all sorts of games, from treasure hunts to interactive matching or memory games.5. Educative PlayParticularly when your students are very young, educative play is a useful technique for teaching them without ever letting on! Students can be encouraged to play with one another in a variety of ways, either with board games or in a playroom or space, depending on the way your school is laid out. The idea with educative play is for teachers and assistants to participate in the play in English, asking questions that students can answer.

Adult ELL Phonics
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This phonics program was developed to serve students with diverse educational backgrounds, with a specific focus on refugees. One of the challenges in working with refugees is that, unlike international students, they come to English classes with huge variation in educational experience. Some students may have finished high school or have a college degree, while others may not have ever picked up a pencil before. The goal of this program is to provide a bridge for those students with limited literacy skills so that they are able to move on to a more traditional beginning ESL class. There are a number of assumptions about academic skills made in most English language classrooms, even at a beginning level. As a result, teachers and students alike become frustrated when those expectations are confounded.

The words we choose to communicate with can be quite tricky. In fact, great writers are considered artists because of their language skills. In this seminar, you will learn how to enhance an argument by choosing your words carefully and “playing” with the language. Rhetorical devices (a fancy term for “persuasive words”) will be a significant aspect of your artful language.StandardsCC.1.2.9-10.H: Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing the validity of reasoning and relevance of evidence.CC.1.4.9-10.C: Develop and analyze the topic with relevant, well-chosen, and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples appropriate to the audience’s knowledge of the topic; include graphics and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.CC.1.4.9-10.G: Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics.

A researcher often reports his or her findings in the form of academic writing. To do so, the researcher must use a particular writing style, being as clear as possible.

From the introduction:

Hello there . . . ! Welcome to English Banana.com’s Big Grammar Book. It’s the third fantastic book from English Banana and the aim this time is to practise grammar, grammar and, er, more grammar!

It’s jam-packed from cover to cover with a great selection of photocopiable worksheets taken from the popular English Banana.com website. We wanted to provide teachers with a really useful book of no-nonsense grammar worksheets that they can dip into and use in class with students at Entry Level (ESOL Core Curriculum Entry Levels 1 & 2). It is also ideal for students to work with at home since the answers are all printed at the back.

The book is divided into four parts and is graded in difficulty, so that it begins with some basic stuff and builds up to more challenging grammar activities. It features a selection of Essential English worksheets which provide practice for crucial basic areas of knowledge for learners at Entry Level, like using numbers, writing the alphabet, spelling days and months correctly, and so on.

In this plan you will find a great activity to use with students. This activity will boost your students' reading comprehension and will boost their interest for literature and story reading. This lesson supports the use of a text set (paired fiction and nonfiction texts on a similar topic) to increase student interest in and understanding of content area material and to develop critical writing skills. The more familiar format of narrative fiction introduces the topic and generates confidence in exploring the less familiar genre of nonfiction.

In this lesson, we are going to walk the learners through the correct lexical and grammatical use of her/his prior knowledge in  the present tense and at the same time we are going to integrate new content related to a short - term goal: Obtaining a driver license. Targeted skills Presence tenseDriving vocabularyAsking and giving directions formal phrasesDescribe family members. Learning objectivesBy the end of the lesson, the learner should be able to:1 Give personal information using grammatically correct professional English.2. Read and write driving directions.3. Ask directions using formal English phrases4. Follow directions given by the driving instructor  Relevant for learning Adult learners planning to complete a professional instruction need to master the required English skills level. This lesson will be focused on the use of the  present tense, having as subject daily activities and driving instructions. This lesson will allow the learner to refresh previous lexical knowledge and to learn the correct grammatical use of present tense. The learner will also practice writing and reading. This practice gives the learner the opportunity to improve his/her English skills. Warm up The teacher will provide the learners an application form to fill out. When filling in the form the learners will be induced to bring out tacit knowledge, like reading personal information questions, writing her/his address. The form could also include  personal development questions in order to prompt  the learners to give the teacher more information  about their daily activities as well as her English level. Once this activity is done, the teacher will use the form’s questions to prompt the learners to introduce herself/himself. IntroductionThe teacher explains the course of the instruction for this lesson Presentation/modeling/demonstration The teacher will introduce herself / himself using new vocabulary in order to complete grammatically correct longer sentences Using a map of the city, the teacher will show the learn a location to explain her way to school.  Here the teacher could use driving directions giving detail on how to get to school form the location she/ he chooses. .The teacher could explain succinctly why having a driver license is important her. The teacher could present all these information in a worksheet form. It could be used to underline verbs in present tense so the learners could have it as a reference for their own presentation. Application After finishing the demonstration phase, the teacher will ask question utilizing the application form filled out previously and the teacher’s demonstration in order to let the learners practice. In this way the learner will be exercising reading while combining known and new vocabulary to use it in present tense properly.Integration  In this phase the learner is going to reproduce a real world situation like giving/ asking personal information, asking address,  identifying driving directions, writing down driving directions. During the activities the learners will integrate all aspects studied in this lesson using formal English.
