  • 1. ESL RESOURCES FINDING CREATING & MODIFYING By: Leslie Howse – Younglim Elementary
  • 2. ESL Resources: Finding, Creating & Modifying As we all know, the standard curriculum material tends to be a bit dry and dated. So, we really should try to liven up stale course materials. We can use:
    • Interesting worksheets
    • Colorful and funny PowerPoint’s
    • Video Clips
    • Songs
    • Games
  • 3. INTERNET RESOURCES What’s good? As far as websites go, the BEST website we can use (which I hope most of you are already aware of and using) is www. smoeworld .com .
    • Specifically for SMOE native English speaking teachers.
    • Lesson plan discussion board
    • Lesson material contributions
    • Ask questions. Get answers.
    • Share your OWN material

    • Stimulate student interest through the use of graphics and sounds
    • Add flair to presentation with slide and bullet transitions and animated effects
    • Make lessons more organized, flexible and interactive
    • Select a font that is easy for students to read and write (like Comic Sans MS font)
    • Find or make one creative PowerPoint
    • Re-use the same PowerPoint
    • Change the text. Change the pictures. Change the template.
    • Practice changing other things like animated effects, layout, add things, like speech balloons
    • Google PowerPoint tutorials. It’s easy!
  • 7. GAMES Games are one of the best tools we can use in the English classroom. Why??
    • Make English FUN!
    • Can be incorporated into ANY lesson.
    • Games are easily modified to suit any topic.
    • There are games for reading, writing and speaking practice.
    • Students speak, so you don’t have to.
  • 8. GAMES Types of games:
    • PowerPoint Games – These are interactive games that are usually easily modified (Bomb’s Away, BAAM, Jeopardy)
    • Board Games - Dice Games (Snakes & Ladders, Chance, etc.)
    • Worksheet Games – Bingo, Battleship, etc.
    • Flashcard Games: (Elimination, what’s missing, Rock Scissors Paper)
  • 9. GAMES ONLINE Websites I recommend:
    • http://www. eslcafe .com/ideas (LOTS of great game ideas here!)
    • http:// genkienglish .net/games. htm (Most of these have short preparation times)
    • http://www. eslkidstuff .com/ gamesmenu . htm (A huge collection of flashcards type games)
    • (lots of ideas and printable games)
  • 10. WORKSHEETS The textbook provides a few good worksheet-type activity, but these tend to be short and sometimes boring for the students. Worksheets can be interesting and a great teaching tool:
    • Easy to find for free online.
    • Easy to create yourself in Microsoft Word (Be creative!!)
    • Good for practicing reading, writing and speaking if used properly.
    • Great for activities focused on grammar (tip: Fill-in-the-blank activities)
  • 11. WORKSHEETS ONLINE Websites I recommend:
    • (Many kinds of worksheets you can create yourself and print)
    • (My own Esnips folder filled with just worksheets which I downloaded from subscription only websites)
    • (pre-made or customizable worksheets)
  • 12. LESSON PLANNING TIPS When planning a lesson, we need to:
    • Think of activities that will make the class more mentally and physically active
    • Try to incorporate activities that allow learners to use and improve more than one skill (reading/writing/speaking)
    • Don’t use material SOLELY for fun. Learning is always the main goal.
    • Be consistant with previous and following lessons
    • Manage your time well. Allow enough time for both explaining the activity and doing the activity
  • 13. FINAL THOUGHT We all have to keep in mind that every teacher has a different idea of what will work best with students. What works with mine, may not work as well with yours. We need to know our own students, what they can do, what they like, how they think, and their motivations for learning English. Then we develop materials with this in mind.
