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.

Read! Spell! Do! playing cards (an extra 30 cards) Adverbs and Adjectives 5
Notice the change in the Spell cards which can take on the endings ier and iest. I ran out of suitable single syllable adjectives. You will need the playing board, which is here: http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=463371#this#. The cards can be used independently of the board. Print 2 sets and play matching games, have reading races, m...

New Alphabet Tracks: letter i in full color, black and white and blank.
This is another of my "new" "Alphabet Tracks" Another idea is to provide players with a list of the words and they have to try and complete the ‘spelling’ track without any errors and without reference to the list. The child holding the list checks the spelling of the other player/s. More information and a key inside. Today�s other con...

3 Magic pages of Phonic Fun with air: worksheet, dialogue and key (#28)
Im going to change the format of some future dialogues; this is the last in the present format. Use the dialogue to practice interviews and to talk about future jobs. I chose the location of the dialogue in the USA because the children use the word airplane and not aeroplane. Though the characters are not Americans. Let the children change the n...

Phonic flash cards and posters #3: 5 pages
This is a little over 500 KBs so happy to see it upload. Notice that I have inserted diacritic lines above some of the letters. If you need to remove them just drag or copy the page into MSPaint and you can do it there. I had to use two different fonts because I did not like the Aa on one font and the Uu on the other. I do hope you like the graphic...
