Yes, it is awkward having the forum distorted!

The size of the page makes me feel a bit  uncomfortable. There is no reaction from the person who made it. What about to add something pleasant and useful to help the page to be renewed? 

These are printable cards and envelopes for different seasonal occasions:

Hello colleagues. It īs been a while since I īve been around but it īs nice to see that the games and old friends are still around. Thatnks elderberry for choosing my definition. The new WOD is CONFORMATOR. Please, let īs see your creative and clever definitions. Remember we don īt want the actual definition but one that comes to mind when you read the word.

A conformater is a mother who suppresses her offsring īs originality and sense of fun. She wants them to fit in and be as dull and boring as the next person īs offspring in the hope that they will get 27 exam passes and become a doctor, a lawyer, or - she will just about accept this - an accountant .

We want U!
I īm an English teacher from China. This year, we focus on setting a program called Grace Globe, which mainly provide our students different opportunities to use the learnt English, also provide them a platform to know the world and get the world know them.
From our aspect, the best way to learn English as a second foreign language for kids is to have the same age kids to speak to(especially ESL kids). And of course, beyond our expectation, they always obtain more.
So, we want kids from different countries, different levels, different ages to become pen pals from this program. 
If u r the teacher or parent or student have the same idea as us, mail me.
Regards to all respectable ESL teachers.

It īs so good to have your replies.
 Our students are mainly from 8 - 12, yet we have some other students below 18, and they are better at understanding than expressing.
If possible, how do you think this way:
Preparation Stage:
1. Information Card: Have our students who are interested in this program prepare some information they want to tell.(Photos, families, food, music, movies, super-star, anecdote ... etc, e-mail address or mail address is required.) with a word to their Pen Pal(s). We keep these cards in our hand temporarily, instead of delivery them immediately.
2. Question Sheet: They will prepare a set of questions that they concern most (I think 10 might be okay, could be about the country, or could be about the Pen Pal) with the NAME of this student.
Teachers ī Stage:
1. Deliver each student īs Question Sheet to every participants.
2. Collect those Question Sheets and sort them according to the NAMEs and type them in as .doc or .docx or .PDF files.
Matching Stage:
1. We teachers exchange all the collected and sored Question Sheets and deliver them to the right students.(Name corresponding.)
2. They will chose their favorite feed-back(s) as their Pen Pal(s) and we can give the corresponding information card(s) to them then.
3. There they go the first mail or e-mail or postcard.

May be you have better suggestions, please let me know.
Also can e-mail me: 1075675271@qq.com
Keep in touch!

Please help me to solve this problems it causes interrupting me from posting work

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Unfortunatelly it will be removed because it īs a copy from 

http://en.islcollective.com/resources/printables/worksheets_doc_docx/food_crossword/nouns-food-beginner/4567    and the name of the author is different from yours.

You should try to make your own work.  A good idea would be to download French Frog īs or Icha Cantero īs tutorials on how to prepare a worksheet. They īre free and you won īt need to use points.  After learning a few tips, things become very simple and soon you have enough points to be able to download 30 worksheets (from the new ones).

And, please reduce the size of your message. Thanks!
