Reading is an important skill for English language learners of all ages. We all know that it’s important for English language learners to spend time on reading activities, especially if they plan to work or study in English. I’ve noticed that some of my students don’t like reading, they would prefer to work on grammar or vocabulary. What I do in these cases is remind them how much reading improves their grammar and increases their vocabulary – this usually helps!Family Routine - This lesson plan talks about daily routines using the present tense. This lesson introduces some phrasal verbs and encourages students to use vocabulary related to time. I especially love this activity for my beginner students.If you want additional lesson plans and support, including teachers’ notes, be sure to register for a free Off2Class account.
