Teaching English as a Second Language.
Work is just beginning on this part of the site. Feel free to use what's here, and once in a while you can check back for more.
Teacher Eric's Gamebook - Obviously a draft version, but there's some damn good stuff in there.
Bingo - A classic game; use aquarium gravel as markers. You can draw a 6x5 grid on the whiteboard, and erase the four corners so there are 26 squares. Students then throw a sticky ball to select a letter.
Tornado - My finest work. Students pick a card randomly after completing a task. Ideally you can make a gameboard by taping plastic sleeves onto a firm backing. Students then play with 20 to 30 of the 96 cards given, so that each game is different and full of surprise. Contact me if you want this one.
Checkers & Tic Tac Toe - Simple, traditional games.
Snakes & Ladders - This can be played as a stand-alone game, or a fun way to keep score and add interest to any other game.
Animal Pairs - For a memory matching game ("Concentration"), these can use the same gameboard as Tornado. You can use them for phonics lessons or other games as well.
Ninja Mountain - A great game for elementary students. I've made an amazing printable with mountain landscapes and movable ninjas and weapons, but you'll have to contact me to get it.
Feeling Faces - Teach kindy kids to name their emotions with these photo flash cards. Real kids' facial expressions including happy, sad, angry, calm, crazy, upset, hungry, sleepy, thirsty, loving, silly, proud, sick, surprised and scared. Also available in A4, or without captions in B5 or A4.
36 Methods - Some old Chinese fables for adult students. Parallel text in English and Chinese. (115MB)
ABC flashcards - Taken from another site and rearranged for 2-sided printing, at A5 size.
Nouns & Verbs - a simple wall hanging to reinforce grammar concepts.
Months of the Year - Not original, but a nice little wall display.
