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.

The Alphabet
Hi, I designed this for a classroom display. All the pictures are representations of the anchor words which I use in the teaching of phonics. If you have access to an A3 sized printer then it is possible to print this out clearly at this size, you can even make mini flash cards of them. You can also print at for example A5 size and stick a copy in...

ABC mini-books Jj and Kk: Colour, B & W and blank books (6 pages plus suggestions for use)
One word reading is so useful, gives the kids so much confidence. They can read a whole English book already, not only that they can publish their own. Check out this one word game (Switchit) here: http://www.youtube.com/user/FunPhonicsReaders#p/u/3/V6V0vjnziHY

Phonic flash cards and posters #4: 5 pages
This is the last of these for now but I do plan to make more in future. Do you like the /oa/ and /ow/ pictures? It is always a challenge to think up original designs. I will get back to my mini books soon. PS I uploaded 3 worksheets today.

Phonic flash cards and posters #3: 5 pages
This is a little over 500 KBs so happy to see it upload. Notice that I have inserted diacritic lines above some of the letters. If you need to remove them just drag or copy the page into MSPaint and you can do it there. I had to use two different fonts because I did not like the Aa on one font and the Uu on the other. I do hope you like the graphic...

ABC mini-books Hh and Ii: Colour, B & W and blank books (6 pages plus suggestions for use)
Took me an age to find suitable vocabulary and graphics for the Ii mini book. I used the word -inning-, which is used in baseball, you can always contrast inning with innings which is used in cricket. I uploaded another worksheet today, so please check it out.

Phonic flash cards and posters: 5 pages
I have slowly been decorating my new classroom and would like to share these resources with you. As before if they prove reasonably popular then I will make more. The anchors (top sheet) can be used as flash cards and/or mini posters. I am going to cut them out and stick them on the wall above the phonic posters. David, how do you spell green? /...

ABC mini-books Ff and Gg: Colour, B & W and blank books (6 pages plus suggestions for use)
Had computer trouble yesterday, had to re-sort and re-import all my graphics (15,700) missed out on some sleep, but had to do these. Again lots of fun vocabulary and graphics.

ABC mini-books Dd and Ee: Colour, B & W and blank books (6 pages plus suggestions for use)
Finding suitable vocabulary for the Ee worksheet was difficult. Children never ask What is an eggkid? some teachers do. I have no answer. Back to work today (Thursday), so less time for this task but I will surely continue to the end. Thanks for your comments. I envision that you will use different worksheets with different classes but if you prog...
