Learn Irregular Verbs with Engames and Fluency MC I have already published 10 posts on teaching irregular verbs. You can see the list of the posts down here: But I still cannot say that my students know the verbs. That was why I joined forces with Fluency MC, and this time we would like to teach the irregular verbs together.

News and Feedback Online Maths Activities Posted by Mrs Kathleen Morris on Friday, August 31st 2012 We had a numeracy curriculum day at my school today and I was asked to present a workshop on online maths sites. The audience was diverse with teachers from all grade levels as well as CRTs (casual replacement teachers) and student teachers. I began by giving a few tips for using online maths sites.

Paper Toys: Flextangles Today’s paper toys, Flextangles, are the fourth project in our collaborative series STEAM POWER: Empowering kids to explore the world through creative projects. Today’s topic is COMPUTE! Since I recently answered this question wrong, I decided it might be good idea for me to limit my math based project to something I’m good at: geometry. I’ve been itching to try making a flexagon ever since my friend Erica mentioned them, so I decided it was high time we made one.

36 fun classroom activities for Present Simple and Continuous By: Alex Case |Audience: Teachers|Category: Teaching English I have recently published 56 communicative activities to teach Present Simple and 35 for practising Present Continuous, often combined with things like frequency expressions and pronunciation to make lessons on these rather basic tenses more useful. However, the most useful thing you can do with Present Simple and Present Continuous is teach and practise them together, contrasting their meanings and uses. I therefore recommend moving fairly quickly on from any lessons on those tenses on their own to combining them in the ways explained below. As many of the activities below are variations on activities in my articles on teaching Present Simple or Present Continuous on their own, one easy way into teaching both tenses together is by adding one extra tense to an activity halfway through it. For example, you can play the Make Me Say Yes game below with just Present Simple questions like “Do you brush your teeth every morning?”

Start of the Year Activities As the new school year is about to begin here in the UK, I thought that it might be useful to share some ideas and activities that could be used at the start of the year, to help you get to know your new class: Choosing the Rules – Involve the children in deciding the rules of your class at the start of the year.Hawaiian T-Shirt Glyph (DOC) – Get to know your students at the start of the year, by asking them to colour this glyph according to the given key. Contributed by Cori McKinzie.Video Introductions – Get to know children at the start of the year by asking them make a short video recording. If the class don’t know each other very well, try some of these activities to encourage co-operation and sharing: Untangle the Spider’s Web – A wonderful team game, which requires good co-operation and a ball of string!

When we communicate effectively we are able to express our ideas and opinions, share experiences, and build relationships with others. When we struggle to express ourselves, we feel unvalued and insecure. As human beings, we want to participate in group discussions and have an impact on the society around us. In the modern world, we communicate across borders.
