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.

Countable Uncountable and Containers flash cards 25-30 of many.
Have you ever taught countables and uncountables in English only and then tried showing students how we can move from uncountable to countable using containers and then numbers (noun-adjectives)? Use with the container flash cards to show how we count the containers but often not the contents.

Mini Book 2: In the Attic in colour and greyscale
The success of this story depends a lot on how it is told. Good use of intonation, pausing at the right time, emphasising the new information, putting fear into your voice when calling for "Dad" and receiving or giving a hug (if appropriate) at the end of the story. These simple stories read aloud are excellent for students to practise their own st...

What is green/blue?: 4 worksheets in color and B & W

What is orange/black and white?: 4 worksheets in color and B & W

Countable Uncountable and Containers flash cards 31-36 of many.
This is the last for now, though when I get time I would like to do more. This set focused on food and drink, sorry about the chalk and uncountables, so there is room for more cards. Have you ever taught countables and uncountables in English only and then tried showing students how we can move from uncountable to countable using containers and th...

Family Flash Cards: 89-100
These are the last cards in the series which totals 100 cards, so you never have the same family twice. I included these 12 ´happy family´ cards as I wanted to be able to naturally include the pronoun ´we´ in activities. "What are your family doing this weekend?" "We are going to Osaka." Which is true as today is my last teaching day, then 12 days ...
