Football Action Game for practising common verbs: page 1 game, page two instructions and key.
Hi, Itīs been a while since I uploaded anything. This fun game can be used purely as a speaking activity, though it can just as easily be played as a written activity for practising everday verbs. See page 2 for more details.

Suffix Links 2 ay ay a_e: phonics worksheet
Sometimes a child just has to remember. The ai ay and a_e carry the same sound so we cannot know the spelling from the sound alone. We can of course teach some spelling rules, which may help the student to learn which spelling to use, but I prefer to first give the child an opportunity to learn in a natural way as do most native speakers, but with...

Haves and Have Nots: in colour and greyscale with key
This worksheet is primarily designed for practicing ‘have/has’. The two original monologues focus on this, whilst the characters give self introductions. The quiz highlights teenage possessions and the comprehension questions help contrast the different lifestyles. It’s a useful worksheet to give while having a discussion on materialism or similar....

Mini Book 13: Black Sands in colour and greyscale
Another short story which I wrote in 2005. This story uses only single letter sounds apart from the word the, so early readers and dyslexics should have little difficulty in reading it. For reading comprehension interact with the children like this: What is the name of the holiday resort? What color is the sand? What is a lad/lass? What are t...

Months of the Year: July and August (4 worksheets color and B & W)
The colouring of July is not perfect as I reduced the number of colours to squeeze in August. A unique design to indicate the northern and southern hemispheres. I intend to use 24 countries altogether. We really need for children to get a grasp of the wider world. They trace over the words, color when using the B & W worksheet, then read what they ...

Months of the Year: September and October (4 worksheets color and B & W)
Just two months to go. Iīll try and find time to make them tomorrow. A unique design to indicate the northern and southern hemispheres. I intend to use 24 countries altogether. We really need for children to get a grasp of the wider world. They trace over the words, color when using the B & W worksheet, then read what they have written.

Months of the Year: November and December (4 worksheets color and B & W)
End of the year, made it. I still want to design one or two worksheets which practise all the months in one worksheet. No hurry though as there are plenty available here. If you missed any then they are in my account. Thanks very much for all your comments.

Phonics Criss Cross Puzzle: 4 versions included
I like criss cross puzzles as they make the child think about the whole of the word and not just the beginning and end. They also have to consider the length of the words. Such puzzles are not only useful but interesting for the student. This particular puzzle, which comes in 4 different variations, focuses on the spelling patterns and sounds repr...
