Thread: Lesson Plan/Games Links

  1. #1

    Default Lesson Plan/Games Links

    Since the old sticky was deleted in our last bit of drama, I figured we should get another thread started. Here`s a few I have bookmarked.

    Englipedia - Tons of elementary and JHS activities. Able to search by textbook, lesson topic, etc. Great site overall.
    http://jhsenglipediaproject.com/default.aspx

    MES-English - Lots of flashcards, boardgames, game ideas and other printables
    http://www.mes-english.com/

    Genki English - Extremely useful elementary focused site. Has whole lesson plans with games, songs, flash cards, etc. The artwork is pretty terrible but my students have never complained. The user submissions are especially helpful.
    http://www.genkienglish.net/index.htm

    Wise Hat
    - Games, songs, etc. Seems to have more of an elementary focus with some things definitely useful to JHS teachers as well. It`s difficult to find specific games however.
    http://www.wisehat.com/index.php

    Dave`s ESL Cafe - Large community of English teachers. Allows for perspectives from people teaching in other countries (fresh game ideas etc). Again, hard to find specific activities but there`s lots of good ideas here.
    http://www.eslcafe.com/idea/index.cgi

    Hopefully someone else will come along and post more. Also, can someone sticky this please? Would that be Wicket?

    Man, I can't even begin to TELL you how sad I am that the link sticky is GONE. I can't remember any of the other websites to add, but I have a request... there was another website, not Englipedia, that also allowed you to search by textbook... For some reason I thought it was Sendai-something but can't find it anywhere using google searches...

    Here's hoping someone else was smarter and bookmarked the actual lesson page versus the ITIL link like I did...

    EDIT:

    And after typing all that I realized that, hey, now that I'm back at work (was out sick) I can actually check the history >.<

    News articles with countless activities to do in class for each one. A little too tough for most of my students, but if you have a higher-level SHS, you might find this useful.

    http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/
    Another place to build things like crosswords and word searches. I don't know if it's much more useful than others, but it seems to have a few different types of puzzles to make.

    http://www.toolsforeducators.com/
    Another site for building things for in-class games. Some unique options. I haven't used it yet, so I'm not sure how good it is.

    http://www.sagajet.com/worksheets
    Some good activities/worksheets for all levels. Well organized.

    http://teachingactivities.pbwiki.com/
    One of my favorite sites. Very well organized, tells you how long each thing takes, what level, and what skills it targets. Activities for all levels.

    http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/
    Found this just recently. If you're doing a lesson on news, this could be an excellent resource. It's got the front page of papers all over the world. I was pretty surprised to find even my own dinky hometown in it (excellent coverage of the U.S., I'm not sure about other countries). My students, although they couldn't really understand any of it, were interested to see what English papers looked like.

    I'll second the Sendai site! It's a really good one.

    I second this. Why was the original sticky gone in the first place? It was so helpful!

    Does anyone have some good activity books for high school age students with the instructions English and Japanese. I have a few, I m looking for more.

    Here's what I got:
    Communication Activities (1) ISBN978-4-304-01155-9
    Communication Activities (2) ISBN978-4-304-01169-6
    It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
    -C. S. Lewis

    I just want to say that every time I come back here to make a crossword puzzle or word search, that line repeats in my head for about twenty minutes. I don't know whether to thank you or issue a complaint.

    This might be one of the best activites sites I've ever been to. Everything is completely done, all you need to do is click on it.

    Everything is laid out perfectly along with New Horizons textbook, but it works with Sunshine as well.

    altastic - stuff for teachers

    It has some nice flash scoring systems, some games,flashcard, and also has a sunshine vocab search. So you can search a word and see if your students learned it or not.
