Jumping right into the lesson without a quick warm-up can be tough going. Try out an ESL warm-up or icebreaker and you’ll notice a big difference. By the time you get to the main heart of the lesson, students will be settled and ready to learn.
Don’t believe me? Try it out for a couple of weeks and I think you’ll notice the difference!
Awesome Classes, Easy Lesson Planning
Do you want to make your classes awesome and your lesson planning easy? I’m sure that all teachers do but it’s not so easy when you’re tired and pressed for time due to having to teach so many classes each week.
However, it really is possible to plan amazing classes that your students will love in a short amount of time. 39 ESL Warm-Ups: For Teenagers and Adults is the book that belongs in your teaching resource library because it will help you get your classes started well. A good beginning is key to a good finish.
Ease Your Students into English
Many of your students will not have spoken English or even given it a single thought since you last saw them. By beginning your lesson with a warm-up activity, you are easing them back into using English, orienting them to the upcoming lesson and focusing them on the work ahead.
ESL warm-ups really are a valuable use of class time, but it can be difficult to come up with news games and activities for each class to keep things fresh and interesting for your students.
Tired of Wasting your Time?
And maybe you’re like me and are tired of searching around on the Internet for fun, engaging and interesting ESL warm-ups that your students will enjoy. I wasted so much time that I eventually decided to write a book that would help out my fellow teachers.
