NOTE: This area was created to house activities that are before the first lesson/unit in the textbooks.


ABC Dominoes: A simple ABC game where students match upper/lowercase domino letters.


ABC Snakes and Ladders:Alphabet Snakes and Ladders helps students recognize the letters of the Alphabet, review colors, and learn the vocabulary that goes with each letter.


Alphabet Mistakes: Guess what letters are not correct and fix them.

Alphabet Challenge: A review crossword puzzle using the simple words learned on the  first semester. Based on New Horizon 1 but can serve as a model to produce activities for other textbooks.


Alphativities: This pre-lesson activity actually includes three alphabet activities: fill-in-the-blank worksheet, alphabet bingo and a writing practice.

Ghost Leg: "Ghost Leg" means amida kuji in Japanese. However, the roots come from China. The Chinese use it as a method of lottery designed to create random pairings between two sets of things. While pachinko remains Japan's pasttime, gambling isn't encouraged in the English classroom, so I've turned this game into a bingo-type activity for students to practice writing upper/lowercase alphabet letters.

R & R: R & R stands for Read & Race. Students work together in groups to gather the sentences around the room.
