25 ideas for using unit word lists in the classroom Many ELT series have unit word lists, either in the student book, or available in the teacher resources. However, few teachers make active use of these unit word lists on a regular basis. In an attempt to address this situation I have produced a set of 25 activities which teachers can easily incorporate into their regular teaching practice. All of the activities have the following three principles: they can work with almost any ELT unit word list;apart from the students having access to unit word list itself, they require only basic classroom resources i.e., pencil, paper, board and marker;they require no previous preparation from the teacher. Note: Unless otherwise stated, students need to be looking at the word list to do the activity.
Tips and resources for teaching English – English with effervescence It’s always a rewarding activity to find up-to-date materials that could increase students’ and pupils’ motivation in learning and applying new things in English classes. I integrate technology into lessons with the aim of teaching young learners of English that the internet could be used for a variety of beneficial and valuable activities apart from chatting or scrolling through Facebook to see what everybody else is up to, browsing others’ profiles or news shared (in their native language) on social networking sites. In Hungary (where I live and work) only few primary schools are supplied with smartboards and few are capable of giving tablet computers into children’s hands to educate them how to create content or how to use the internet for learning. Our elementary schools lag behind other foreign schools in terms of adequate technological facilities and the level of computer literacy, thus opportunities for practical learning are limited.

Each country (or region) has its own traditional Christmas gift-bringer. Some of them are quite nice, such as the British Father Christmas, others are outright weird, such as the Catalan “defecating log”, but all of them are equally interesting.

ESL Made Easy: December Topic: Human Rights Day December 10th is HUMAN RIGHTS DAY as proclaimed by the United Nations in 1950. Drafted in 1948 by a mix of representatives from around the world, the Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the UN to help protect all people in the world from oppression and discrimination. While this might be a sensitive topic for some of your ESL students, reading and discussing the 30 Declarations of Human Rights could lead to some stimulating conversations (and writing topics) on current world issues.>>> WARM-UP CONVERSATION QUESTIONS ON HUMAN RIGHTS By ESL Made Easy:
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" is a popular English language nursery rhyme and counting-out rhyme. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 11284.

10 ways to use tongue twisters in your class! I LOVE tongue twisters! Sometimes I am pretty good at them. I feel like I have an agile frog's tongue attacking sounds as they come. Uralic Family Uralic Komi-Permyak Komi-Zyrian Udmurt Enets The Teacher Treasury - Free Downloads Believe it or not, one of my 8th graders showed me this trick and it blew my mind! Some of you may be thinking, this isn't a useful resource because it doesn't help the student understand the concept of multiplying by 9 and that's understandable. However, I've taught 4th and 5th grade special education and little tricks like these are a lifesaver and confidence booster when students encounter multiplication problems. I really hope you find this helpful too. I'm not sure about you, but I have an account with a long list of websites that require usernames and passwords.
Non-Negotiables for Teaching English Learners - English Learners The other day, I posed a question to my Twitter PLN. I asked what their non-negiables were for teaching English Learners.
