love the creative chalk....it is a spin off of our prefectural website. The guy that runs it is a really good fella.

-- MES-ENGLISH - http://www.mes-english.com/flashcards.php (http://www.mes-english.com/flashcards.php)
-- ENGLISH RAVEN - http://www.englishraven.com/flashcardsalphabets.html (http://www.englishraven.com/flashcardsalphabets.html)
-- LANTERNFISH - http://bogglesworldesl.com/cards.htm (http://bogglesworldesl.com/cards.htm)
ES & JHS Games:
-- ENGLIPEDIA - http://jhsenglipediaproject.com/default.aspx (http://jhsenglipediaproject.com/default.aspx)
The coolest thing about this site is its textbook-specific JHS section (New Horizon, New Crown, Total English and working on One World). It also has a simple 'one-click' bilingual ES area. Finally, a HS section is in the works.
-- SENDAI EDU - http://www.sendaiedu.com/lessons.html (http://www.sendaiedu.com/lessons.html)
This is another great site for searching for JHS activities via Sunshine & Total English. It also offers ES games.
-- MES-ENGLISH - http://www.mes-english.com/games.php (http://www.mes-english.com/games.php)
These games are nothing but 1st class. They have been tried and tested in JHS classrooms. And, the artistry is equal to none.
-- NATTO - http://www.nattoenglish.net (http://www.nattoenglish.net/)
This has decent collection of activities but what I've found is the platform is kinda heavy for slow school computers to surf, and it's hard to find specific games. However, this site does have potential and provides a bilingual platform for the entire site.
-- WISEHAT - http://www.wisehat.com/index.php (http://www.wisehat.com/index.php)
This site has a decent list of ES & JHS games. However, once again, it's not good for trying to find a specific game quickly.
-- LANTERNFISH - previously, Boggle's World - http://bogglesworldesl.com/lessons/archive.htm (http://bogglesworldesl.com/lessons/archive.htm)
While this site hasn't loaded any games recently, they do have a decent collection of JHS games. It also offers many other
-- TOOLS FOR EDUCATORS - http://www.toolsforeducators.com/ (http://www.toolsforeducators.com/)
This is by far the best generator for making worksheets and suppliments for games.
-- DISCOVERY CHANNEL - http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/ (http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/)
This has work searches, hidden messages, crytograms, crosswords, etc.
-- MAKE BELIEFS COMICS - http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/comix.php (http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/comix.php)
Make your own comics.
-- ESL WRITING WIZARD - http://www.writingwizard.longcountdown.com/handwriting_practice_worksheet_maker.html (http://www.writingwizard.longcountdown.com/handwriting_practice_worksheet_maker.html)
Writing practice worksheets - simply type what you want practiced and print it out.
Bilingual Lyrics
-- TREVREPORT - http://www.trevreport.org/lyrics/#top (http://www.trevreport.org/lyrics/#top)
-- RAKUTEN - http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/miyajuryou/3000 (http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/miyajuryou/3000)
