I am now, after more than 5 decades in the work force, officially semi-retired. New hobby: gardening. Old hobby restarting: table tennis. I still have some classes to teach and materials to design, many of which I will continue to share with the dear members of ESLPs. You may come across my materials on Facebook and my blog.

What is little?: pictionaries, 2 versions with and without words. Instructions inside.
Whether something is big or little is relative and most of the teaching materials available do not show this relativity but this work does. Look out for the big pictionary which is here http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=567218#thetop and the big little bingo which is coming in a day or so. This worksheet complements my earlier work re...

Usually I play with just 18 of the 24 riddle-calling cards and then each child w...

Nobody Wanted to Play ORT

3 pages of Phonic Fun with ou: worksheet, story and key (#10)

The stories are classified as "decodable", but unlike many so called decodable stories these have over 90 percent decodable text as opposed to the 40- 60 percent found in most "phonic readers" I mix sentence fragments with grammatically correct sentences as fragments are often easier for beg...

It is a domino type game except that the children must form a loop with the cards. You can print out a few sets and have children race to see which team wins first. If I do during a Christmas party, then I reward the children with chocolates. The original (re-uploaded) cards were designed for nonreaders and of course can be used in any language, th...
