  • an 8-picture winter tale, for story sequencing, reading and matching
  • and a game, including spinners and ‘Misfits’ snowmen cards, to bring the topic together in a fun and dynamic way.

The Teachers’ Notes provide an overview of each ESL Activity Sheet, along with a bank of ideas for using them in a variety of ways – to help motivate and inspire you and your young learners.

Many of the activity sheets are ideal as extension activities, time-fillers or homework tasks – and all provide low-prep/easy-prep, time-saving support to help you enhance your ESL teaching.

All the materials contained in this pack have been created by ESL teachers and tried and tested in many ESL classrooms around the world – so you can be confident that they do actually work.
