Halloween for beginners
There are three sheets consisting of activities describing a Halloween picture. There are gap fill exercises, word and vowel; match up - descriptions and picture and a wordsearch. I suggest a true/false, but haven´t included sentences as any teacher can make these up on the spot. Nice picture.

Five good witches for Halloween
A short RC and match-up activity. Thanks to Elisabeth Alba for permission to use this lovely picture. Why ever these ´good´ witches are holding innocent toads over a boiling cauldron, I don´t know. I don´t think they mean any real harm;-)))

Lion King categories
I use this exercise before starting Lion King, but it could work for Animal Habitats. ´Beat the Gong´ is a great game which forbids the students from saying ´yes´ or ´no´ - they must give a full sentence. I have had to delete a nice picture of a gong and a timer, which you need for the game. I just use my bin and a board marker! Students love thi...

Present continuous tense practice
Three pages with various activities to practise the present continuous tense. If the format looks familiar, I´m guilty and I hold my hands up to it! I have copied the style of the first ws I ever downloaded - it´s on this site. I still use it as I like it so much. This is a little tribute to it.

Picnic in the Park
Practice with the past simple tense. I start off with present continuous and Splat! Pupils come to the front and I say ´She is sitting beside the ball´ etc and the first to touch it wins....Then past simple. Well, I prepared this as a worksheet, but the picture (I have permission to use it) was too ...

Teaching adverbs in a subtle manner
I went on a course ´Grammar for writing´ which informs us that you should teach grammar, but in a covert sort of way. I made this little ppt, which will be a nice little starter for reinforcing adverbs.

Christmas ´Guess who I am?´ or ´Guess what I am?´
The clues first, then the image flies in. This is not an original idea. Also, the last slide isn´t really about Christmas, but I couldn´t resist! ;-)

Perseus and Medusa
I´ve spent a lot of time on the Medusa/Perseus and Andromeda story and I put a few slides together to test my students´ knowledge. I showed them the slides and asked lots of questions. Good for past simple practice.
