Teach English through Craft

Teach English through Craft

Explore our worksheets, flashcards, games and crafts to activate English from the stories or topic. They all come with comprehensive Activity Suggestions with lots of practical teaching ideas to help you use the materials in interactive and dynamic ways. Each resource includes different variations of each activity to suit different ages and abilities. Many of them can be used in games or drama activities. They provide a useful record of learning and are great to continue the learning outside the classroom.

Teach English through Stories

Our Story resource pages include storytelling video collections for use in class or to share with families at home. You’ll also find song playlists that relate to topics in the story and links to our downloadable Kids Club English resources. Many stories also include free games and powerpoints. There are also simplified versions of some of the stories to help make them more accessible to EFL/ESL learners. Planning made easy!

Our song playlists are organised by topic. We have searched through YouTube and put together the best songs for teaching English. You can play them directly from the website. No annoying adverts or videos that start playing after the song you want. In our classes, we often teach without the video, but we love being able to get quick and easy inspiration from these collections. The Classroom Management songs have been so useful in every class!

Relevant song playlists are also included in each Story Resource Page and each Topic page.

Teach English through Games

Games are integral to the very young learner and young learner classroom. Our Resources include Flashcards, Mini-cards and Matching Cards that are great for playing a whole host of games to practise the English you’re working on. We also have a range of digital and printable games available for specific stories and topics. Our Activity Suggestions include game ideas for use with the worksheets and crafts. Many of the crafts involve creating games for the kids to play in class and at home. We’ll also be adding game ideas and instructions in our Teaching tips section.
