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.

Simple Past Simple 1 with keys
When you introduce your pupils to the past simple you have also to teach them the spelling rule related to single syllable words where the final consonant is usually doubled after a short vowel. Not in the case of x because that says /ks/. Well I am poor at teaching grammar so this worksheet will do the teaching for me. It is my first and I will ...

Simple Past Simple 8 with keys
The phonic pattern within these verbs /oo/ representing both common sounds. Once again I am trying to use well known verbs. I am thinking of changing the format slightly for future worksheets in this series to make them a little more challenging.

Mini Book 13: Black Sands in colour and greyscale
Another short story which I wrote in 2005. This story uses only single letter sounds apart from the word the, so early readers and dyslexics should have little difficulty in reading it. For reading comprehension interact with the children like this: What is the name of the holiday resort? What color is the sand? What is a lad/lass? What are t...

Moving On: two versions of the worksheet with answer key
I included two versions of the worksheet, believing that page 1 is more suitable for online classes than page 2. The answer key can easily be adapted to make it into a written assignment.

Adverbs and Adjectives (series 2) with keys
This is the first in a new series, which focuses on longer adjectives and adverbs. Students complete the word search, crosswords and read the sentences to distinguish the context to help them choose the correct adverb or adjective to complete each sentence. If the response is reasonable, I will create some more. I hope that you and your stude...

Months of the Year: July and August (4 worksheets color and B & W)
The colouring of July is not perfect as I reduced the number of colours to squeeze in August. A unique design to indicate the northern and southern hemispheres. I intend to use 24 countries altogether. We really need for children to get a grasp of the wider world. They trace over the words, color when using the B & W worksheet, then read what they ...
