ABC flashcards and game ideas

Here are 4 sets with the cards (with just images, capital letters, small letters and the full set). The ful set contains some cards from the other ones just to save paper. I have used the word "Ukraine" to represent the letter U, but you can easily edit that ( just choose the "Ungroup" option). Print, cut and laminate the cards if you want them to last longer. There are lots of great ideas for learning  the alphabet on Activity Village website.

Snow White and Past Simple

There are 3 different tasks in the worksheet. First students read the fairy tale and fill in missing words (it's a follow up activity for my online exercise where they can watch the video: Snow White Video Activity ). After that students are given 24 past simple sentences about Snow White and they are to make questions to the underlined parts of the sentences, match them with the pictures and, finally, make negative sentences.
P.S.: The video has disappeared from You Tube , but students can still watch it here.

Pronouns boardgame

Students roll a die and name the pronoun they land on. If it's a picture, they say which pronoun it represents and find it on the board. If it's a word, they read it and show the corresponding picture. The pictures where two people (or animals) are hugging each other mean "WE". There can be many other ways to use the game - just follow your imagination.

Articles Board Game

This is a board game for elementary students to practise the articles. You'll need a die and counters to play it. Students roll the die and name the article that should be in the sentence they land on. Sometimes no article is needed. If the answer is wrong they move one space backwards. You can invent your own rules :-)
