The Paper Bag Princess

Standard

There’s a story from my children’s youth that involves two preschoolers, a six-hour car trip, and a tape of Robert Munsch reading his own stories.  Though some of us may still be traumatised by Mr. Munsch’s existence, the fact remains that everyone still loves his stories.  Younger students will love having The Paper Bag Princess read to them; slightly older students will enjoy the prince’s epithet; even middle-school students will applaud the feminist themes.

ESL Games Plus

Standard

Awesome new game site for everyone!  (Thanks, Stephanie!)  An easy way to introduce the boring-but-necessary vocabulary.

Crocodile Games would be great for Beginners and Levels 1 and 2.  The games with the light green backgrounds depend on audio (you’ll have to repeat what the game says), and the games with the dark green backgrounds depend on reading. 

The Memory Games are just like the ones on Hangmouse website; best of all, they have a Colours game for those who can’t get the old one to work!

If you have older students at lower levels (or scurvy scalliwags of any age), you can also play Pirate games.

Levels 2 and 3–and maybe even 4–may like the Spelling games

Levels 4 and 5 can beat their heads against the Connector games.

Of course, nothing is perfect: the Crocodile games have annoying background music that I can’t seem to get rid of on my computer.  The Pirate games, though, were nice and silent. 🙂
