• 13 Action Verb Worksheets

    $3.99

    Actions verbs are a mainstay of every language teachers curriculum. They are great to teach and children really benefit from being taught them using varied activities. However, one of those activities we use to consolidate or cool them down after all the actions, is the humble worksheet.

    Children need to learn a mixture of grammar and phonics to learn to talk. Verbs, and in particular Action Verbs, are incredibly important part of this. The ability to be able to communicate their actions and what they want or have been doing is a huge motivator for younger learners. As they start to form sentences they will naturally acquire vocabulary, there are ways to develop these skills more effectively.

    • We are teachers, and can offer full support and help with how to use these resources, just pop an email to info@makingenglishfun.com
    • We prefer that our resources are used, not just bought, so we will always keep the price accessible.

    The language has been written to make it simpler and more accessible to students of all ages and language abilities. We had been using the more established games in classrooms as they are a student favourite. So we thought by adapting the idea into a more language friendly system would be of benefit to teachers but also to students.

    These Animal Antics Trump cards have been designed and produced by English teachers to help provide fun, effective and engaging activities for all students of English. We also have tried them in classrooms to see if they are suitable for Kindergarten, Primary and ESL students. The main reasoning is to make all the information on the cards accessible to students not just the facts or the statistics.

    With this in mind we also have a regularly update page on the site with game ideas and resources for teachers and parents to use with the Animal Antics trumps cards, These include both reading and writing worksheets, matching and classification games, search for information tasks, larger instructions for desks and tables, and templates to use to adapt the cards to your own students learning environment.

    For verified purchasers of Animal Antics trump cards we also have a collection of these resources on PowerPoint to fully enable teachers and parents to be able to change and edit to fit their students needs. and we can send them or provide links to the templates. Access to these means you will be able to have full ability to adapt these to your needs. To our knowledge no other resource offers this level of integration and we hope we have made something that is much more intuitive to educators needs.

    We have also included in our resources page a new ideas section for all teachers who think of activities or produce resources to be able to tell all other teachers through that page. In the first instance through the comments section at the bottom but as we receive ideas we will post them along with ours. We feel that we, like all teachers, are not in the position to have all the ideas, answers or resources and teachers all over the world being the innovators they are will devise ways f using these resources we never did. Nothing will give us greater pleasure than putting those up to share.

    We have also instructed our printer to make 3/4 blank templates in each pack. these are there so teachers can either make their own cards, or to photocopy and give to students so they can make their own pack, with what ever subject they feel. We also have outlines to download and stick onto cards if you need on the resources page as well.

  • Sale! Colour the digraph and blends Phonics worksheets.

    Digraph Colouring Worksheets Editable templates

    $2.99

    Who are they for?
    I love using these for my younger, and even not so young learners. They just work. The concept is simple, the making of these is not!! it took me an age!

    This is the big worksheet, and the three single sounds worksheets covering three digraph sounds, WH, CH, and SH. This is a step up from teaching CVC and single sounds and this is a good introduction to enable that.

    They . all the short sounds are inside the body of the picture and for the full, and most of the single worksheets, the words outside the outline of the picture all follow a similar pattern. .

    How to use these colouring sheets?

    Students have to identify the difference between the sounds and colour them according to the key / code on each worksheet.

    They really are great to help recognise the difference between the digraph sounds, and for teachers they are super easy to mark as its colour coded! for ones where students do a good job they can also be used as a display as well. I have done this most years when I do this activity.

    I have two versions in the file one is the single sounds, more aimed if you introduce the sounds individually, and a bigger worksheet that has all of the sounds and long vowels if you are doing the activity in for later years.
    Most of resources can be premium downloaded below, they are all editable so you can adapt them for your, classes, students and schools. It also helps me with the costs of running the website!

  • Sale! Three Free regular Past Tense Worksheets

    Simple Past Tense Worksheets and Handouts – Editable

    $1.49

    This is the Editable PowerPoint version of these Long and Short Vowel Sorting worksheets.

    I actually enjoy teaching this subject, and run it as an ongoing quiz or activity through out the year, where students have to pick three past tense verbs from a bag and then so the following.

    The word says washed

    the ED Sound says ”t”

    This is because the final sound of wash is ”sh’‘

    If they could do that three times then they would win a cool eraser, a Toys R’US jumping bean or similar priced toy that a teacher can afford! It worked really really well! .

    However , I digress, These worksheets are part of the lessons that I teach to 8 to 11 year old ESL students to help them learn and then master the tricky simple past tense pronunciation. Although, even with mistakes, this still means they would be understandable it is better if they can be given the rules on pronunciation so they can work it out for themselves. It also then allows them to teach their classmates and peers as well.

    So these worksheets are aimed at being a learning experience and not just solely as a test for knowledge. They can be used as either stand alone activities or as a teacher / student led activity. I have used these in my classes and though i would make them a little more pretty for all of you

    Included here are two simple past tense worksheets and a handout for students with the rules of the Ed Endings that can be printed and given to students. This gives them the material needed to complete ontheir own, and to help them take their own time to process the rules.

    I am making other resources for this and other subjects but school has started back now ( post Covid, well kinda post CoVid) so it will slow down a little till the holidays.

    Happy teaching
