Activities for Teaching the Simple Past   
 
 

Lead in stage: Where was I yesterday?

27 Jun 2017

Boy, does that teacher work hard! I liked the activities, but am surprised it was a revision for past simple - the basic place names seemed to be new to the students. I liked her hair and I want mine like that! 
 
What I do, with younger students, 11-16, to introduce the past simple.
Have a pile of action cards, I make my own but some nice ones here. or just write down instructions. 
First, I choose 5 regular verbs and give them to a volunteer as instructions. e.g. open the door, switch the light on, walk to the window, water my plant (pretend!) look out the door... The volunteer has to do all these actions, then I ask the rest of the class to use... First, second, third, fourth, fifth OR First, then, next, after that, finally. In pairs, they have to remember the actions and the order they were performed in. During the feedback, we tell it in the past simple and I point out the pattern. We add ´ed ´. I ask for another volunteer, with 5 more actions (all hands are up!) and we do it again. I include ´climb on your desk, jump off your desk.. and a few more fun things. This can be continued in small groups, or pairs. I got this idea from the wonderful Jim Scrivener. 
 
Thanks for sharing this clip!

Partnership wanted !   
 
Dear fellow teachers,
 
I ´ll be working on a project in September with students aged 14/15 on the 100th anniversary of the battle of Cambrai during WW1. I was wondering if any of you ( maybe from the UK, Australia, Canada ) would like to join us on this project ? It could basically take any form, the purpose being to commemorate this event together.
Thanks a lot  :)

POWERPOINT Presentations   
 

POWERPOINT Presentations

When I worked as an ESOL teacher in College, I noticed that very few teachers used PowerPoint as a means of teaching.

When they did, the slides were almost always static, often black and white, usually in small font, and the teacher stood at the computer, regularly pressing a key to move to the next slide.

Not all teachers worked like this, but many did.

I realise that some schools, unfortunately, don’t have computers … indeed, some do not have electricity … and not all teachers are familiar with the computer. So, I can understand the difficulties.

However, on ESLP, there are numerous excellent PowerPoints, already prepared, and some are automatic. With one of these presentations, all the teacher has to do, is to start the computer on PowerPoint, click “Slide Show” and click “From Beginning”. If it’s automatically timed, the presentation runs itself to the end. If not, the teacher does nothing more than clicking the “Down” arrow to change to the next slide.

There are many advantages to using a good visual presentation.

1. Needs little preparation.

2. Effective teaching method.

3. Engages attention of students.

4. No standing in queue for photocopying.

5. Needs no chalk, pens, Whiteboard, etc.

6. Teacher can work on other things.

7. Needs only computer, (Memory Stick is a good option).

8. Colourful, animated, with music and commentary if necessary.

9. A mini cine-film.

10. Teacher can change timings, (slow/fast), for different level classes.

11. Teacher can pause, restart, stop at any time.

12. Can be small screen, or big screen with OHP.

13. Suitable for solo work by student.

14. Lesson can be repeated effortlessly at any time

15. Lasts ‘for ever’.

These are my thoughts. What are yours?

A problem is that most teachers are not aware of the features that are available in PowerPoint that can make it interactive.  I am referring specifically to the feature of triggers which allows the user to select specific points on the slide and make the text or picture do whatever you want it to do.  Not wishing to blow my own trumpet but examples of such activities can be found among my presentations.  I am afraid I have been away from direct teaching for a number of years now and so my instructions are a little out of date and refer to older versions of PowerPoint.  PowerPoint is also introducing brand new features, such as PowerPoint Mix that presents whole new alternatives for teachers.  With a little imagination and creativity PowerPoint is a valuable tool in any teacher ´s arsenal of teaching weapons!!

Can anybody who knows Akan or the language they speak in Ghana help translate something?   
 
Hi everyone, What I ´m about to ask about has nothing to do with teaching or even English, for that matter. But this website is the only place I could think of where I can find people of all different languages who can also speak English well. Anyway, here it goes. I ´m reading this awesome book ´Homegoing ´ and there are a lot of akan words transcribed in English. I ´ve been able to figure out most of them, but then I got to this song: Awurade Nyame kum dom Oboo adee Nyame kum dom Ennee yerekokum dom afa adee Oboo adee Nyame kum dom Soso be nuhu, megyede be hunu Can anyone help and tell me what it says exactly? Thanks a bunch

New lyrics to old familiar tunes   
 
You can sing to the tune of  She ´ll be coming around the mountain 

We are loving learning English, yes, we are! 
We are loving learning English yes, we are! 
We are loving learning English, 
We are loving learning English, 
We are loving learning English yes, we are! 

Sing to the tune of I ´ve been working on the railroad

We ´ve been working on our English 
All the live long day! 
We ´ve been working on our English 
Just to pass the time away. 
Can ´t you hear the bell a-ringing? 
Rise up so early in the morn´ 
Can ´t you hear the teacher singing, 
Now it ´s time to learn. 

Learning every day, 
Learning every day, 
Learning just to pass the time away! 
Learning every day, 
Learning every day, 
We are learning English every day! 

Singing in the classroom in English, 
Singing in the classroom I know o-o-o, 
Singing in the classroom in English, 
Strumming on the old banjo! 

[And singing] Fee fie fiddli-i-o!
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o-o
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o 
Strumming on the old banjo! 

We ´ve been working on our English. 
Now ´s our time to shine! 
We ´ve been working on our English. 
Gonna make that language mine! 
We will learn it for our parents 
And our teachers, too. 
We will master every problem 
I can , so can you! 

Learning every day, 
Better every day, 
Learning English every day! 
Learning every day, 
Better every day, 
We are getting better every day!  

Singing in the classroom in English, 
Singing in the classroom I know o-o-o, 
Singing in the classroom in English, 
Strumming on the old banjo! 

Fee fie fiddli-i-o 
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o-o
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o 
Strumming on the old banjo!
