Ways with Poem

Star Q





Many teachers shy away from teaching poems to their students especially when the teacher is required to produce original poems of their own either as an additional exercise to the one that is already available in the text book or to be used in the teaching of specific elements related to poems, like rhyming schemes for example.

Speaking Activities - OPS English Form 2

Star Q


Using games to get students to speak provides a less intimidating environment for them to practise speaking, especially amongst students who feel that they are not up to par with their counterparts in the classroom.  Games is also a way to get all students (well, almost) to participate.

Speaking Activity - OPS English

Star Q


I have always loved using songs to teach English Language, but there is always the matter of choosing a song (or songs) that are suitable for my students.  Suitable in this case means that the songs are current enough that they themselves love the songs (which means I would have to pretend liking my students' songs even though they are different from the songs that I like!)  the lyrics of the songs are easy enough (without too many difficult words) and that the songs are not loud, that is with only a few musical instruments, preferably strings.

Writing for LEP Students

Star Q

Speaking Activities - OPS English

Star Q


I have had many situations where students refuse to speak even when the activities that have been designed for them were supposed to get them to speak.  We often realize that the reasons for this would be the lack of confidence amongst them.

Anchor Activity - Poem

Star Q


I know it's already March; three months into 2016 and this is the first entry!  This in fact, goes to show how busy I have been during the first two months of this year.  That, and the fact that I have been left almost immobile due to some problems with the nerves in my left leg.
