I love cats and I love eslprintables. If I had to choose between cats and eslprintables, I would choose cats. If I had to choose between cakes and cats, I´d choose cats. If I had to choose between cats and life... Well, if I didn´t have life, I wouldn´t have cats. But hey, nobody´s asking me to choose;-)

The Ghost of Cranston House
This is a short story with a twist in the tale, based on five images. There are exercises and discussion points. First, I ask the students to mind map the images and think about what the story might be about. Good for teaching ´should´.

Joke match-up exercise
Just a bit of fun! The students have to match up the opening part and the punch line of the jokes. These are ´groan´ jokes, a bit corny! I include a key and explanations.

A short play/skit:
This is a very short ´play´ for teenage beginners. If you have a more advanced student, they could read the part of the teacher. It´s based on getting answers mixed up so that they are funny. You could get your class to use this as a basis and come up with something similar. About 16 parts, but this could be changed.
