I know that ESL Teachers love flashcards. I made a new set with these clipart from Scrappin Doodles.
Here´s the link:
Flashcards activity 1. Place selected flashcards on the board and hand in the scrabble letters to the students and have them make crosswords with the letters on their tables.
Flashcards activity 2. Have the students write each word under the flashcard using the scrabble letters.
Flashcards activity 3. Place the flashcards around the room. Have the students find them as you ask questions.
Teacher: Where is the gift?
Students: Here ! It is on the chair.
Flashcard activity 4. Make a grid on the board with random flashcards. Ask questions.
Teacher: Find B3. Who is B3?
Students: He is Rudolf.
Then ask students to make sentences that relate to make a short Christmas Story. Write an example and have it ready to read to the class.
Teacher: Joseph and Mary are in the stable. The Angel is at the stable, too. She is drinking cocoa. The reindeer likes cocoa. The Shepherd came to see Baby Jesus, but Rudolf was at the stable. The Elf Girl came with the Gingerbread and The Gingerbread House. Poinsettias were in the sack with many presents.
Well, I invented this story. You can use it, but I am not that good at writing, LOL!!
