What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Batter Up! (Medium Difficulty Spelling) - January 23, 2017Lesson Collection #1 - Lesson 8c
This is a very fun, competitive yet educational activity.
There are two teams; the "pitcher" team and the "batter" team. Drawing from a set of 39 cards from the worksheets, a "pitcher" reads a word from the card to the "batter." The "batter" tries to spell the word. If the spelling is correct, the "batter" advances to first base. If incorrect, the batter is out and a second batter takes over.
There are several similar worksheets available. They are:
Batter Up! (Nouns - Opposites) (See 8a above).
Batter Up! (Nouns - Spelling) (See 8b above).
Batter Up! (Tag Questions) (See 8d below).
Batter Up (Abbreviations) (See 8e below).
It’s always very stimulating to get my e-mail every Sunday morning because I know there will be one of your lessons in it. I read them every week and have tried to put them in practice. I must say they really work! Thanks a lot for the great lessons. As a teacher and teacher trainer, sometimes I run out of ideas. Your lessons are very important, not only for me but for my trainees as well.
What a wonderful site you’ve got there, thanks for all the great ideas. I teach high school girls who really dislike studying, but even they manage to get some enjoyment from these lessons.
We EFL teachers need more sites like these.
I integrate your lessons into my syllabus so girls never get bored. For them, English should be entertainment and while most textbooks are short on that, your lessons are not.
Keep up the wonderful work!
Elizabeth Longo Seong Am Girls’ Information Industrial High School
There are millions of EFL ESL books here in the library, but I use your worksheets more than any of the others combined.
I love them. My students love them.
Margaret Holt - ESL Teacher,
I just wanted to say that I think that the lessons you have on your site are great. I have found that the lessons work well in class and my students really enjoy them.
The result of your workseets in the classroom is amazing. Students go crazy about this new kind of practice material, which is completely different from what they can find in Textbooks.
On the other hand, all worksheets foster speaking and interactions, which are so difficult to achive. I hope this site will keep on working hard to provide us, not so imaginative teachers, with ready-made quality material for use in the classroom.
