Falling Clouds

Falling Clouds
Falling Clouds In this game you have to move words around to make a sentence. You can practice English grammar by rearranging words to make a complete sentence. The sentences get more complicated as you progess. Hopefully this game is a good way to practice sentence structures and review word order. Grammar is an important part of learning English as it is something that differs between languages. Edit – In response to numerous comments and emails, the game is now slower giving more time to move the clouds around.

Days and Dates in English - Learn English Basics Expressing the year Expressing the date Prepositions Halloween Lesson Plan for ESL Kids Teachers Warm Up and Maintenance: This lesson will start quite differently than your usual lessons as we want to get the atmosphere of Halloween started right from the beginning of class. NOTE: Not too scary! Some of the activities in this lesson can be made quite scary for older students but make sure this is toned right down for younger students. Dylan Wiliam advises: Forget the Rubric; Use Work Samples Instead Part of the Solution or Part of the Problem? In their new book, Embedding Formative Assessment, Dylan Wiliam and Siobhan Leahy make a simple, interesting, and really useful suggestion. Instead of using a rubric to communicate expectations for a given piece of student writing, Wiliam and Leahy suggest using work samples, instead–ideally two or more. “Rubrics,” they note, “rarely have the same meaning for students that they do for teachers.” This, I think, is really insightful.

ESL Warm-up Games and Activities Divide the students into 2 teams. Have 2 desks at the front of the class, facing each other, with an eraser in the middle of the 2 desks. One student from each team comes and sits in the hot seat. Rotate through so that all the students get a chance to play. You then ask a question of some sort. The first person that grabs the eraser can try to answer the question.
