Hey there!

Unit 4: Parts of the Face is now ready to download!

Students will learn many different parts of the face in this unit.

Along with the usual games and practice activities, there are also several unique activities featured in this unit.

  1. Make a Face: Students can build funny faces by choosing from many different eyes, noses, and mouths. Craft some funny and unique faces together!

  2. Clown Coloring. In this activity, students will color the different parts of a clown’s face. They can either color the clown based on what the teacher tells them or they can color it based on their liking and then talk about it.

  3. Remember the face: Students are shown a funny face and they must remember the details and then remake that face.

  4. Who Am I? Students are shown three randomly colored clown faces. The teacher must secretly choose a clown and then describe it slowly. Students should then identify which clown the teacher is describing.

  5. Circle the Nose: Start by choosing a family member or animal that’s already been featured in units 1 and 3. Then, name a part of the face (if applicable) and the students should color it. You can also task your students with finding the correct picture and circling it with a specific color.

You may download the unit 4 content here.

Now, I have my eyes set on Unit 5: Verbs! This will be coming out May 6th. If you’d like to get an update for when unit 5 is released, you can follow me on Twitter @GriffyHEE.

Wellllll, that’s all for today! Thanks for your support everyone. Bye bye!

Unit 3: Family is now ready to download

Great news!

Unit 3: Family is now ready to download!

In this unit, students will learn how to talk about family members.

Along with the usual games and practice activities, there are also two unique activities to this unit:

  1. Family member animal likes/dislikes. In this activity, the teacher will tell the students about a family member and what animals he/she likes and doesn’t like. Students should match the pictures with what the teacher says. This allows students to naturally review the animal vocabulary from unit 1.

  2. Hair Coloring. Students are presented with four family members (brother, sister, father, and mother), but look! Their hair is white! At the bottom of the screen, students can touch a color and then one of the family members to change their hair to that color. You can describe a family member and their hair to the students and have them color the hair accordingly. This allows students to naturally review the color vocabulary from unit 2.

Currently, the IWB lesson and family flashcards are ready to download here.

I am currently working on unit 4. Unit 4 will be themed around the parts of the face. It will be available to download on April 19th 2019! However, if you’d like to download it early, you can do that by becoming a patron on Patreon. Click here to check out my Patreon page.

And that’s all for now! Let me know what you think about unit 3 in the comments below and if you have any suggestions for the themes of upcoming units, let me know below as well.

I look forward to hearing from you.
