English Clothing Flash Cards, Clip Art and Song for ESL, EFL Teachers

Hi, this is a new idea ! What are your thoughts? Rather than looking at a small thumbnail I figured it might be easier for you to watch a video of all my clothing teaching resources.

The brief video shows:

  • Clothing Flash Cards in US and UK English
  • The clothing clip art
  • The Clothing Song by The Magic Crayons.

These English resources are great for young learners of English and I have used them for many years as a teacher in Japan and at my own Saturday School of English in Tokyo.

These are all available exclusively via my Teachers Pay Teachers store in English, Spanish, and Japanese. The song is only in English. Please check my other great videos of further flash cards, clip art and songs in my YouTube Channel playlist.

I'd really appreciate some feedback below. Thank you - Mr. Tim

4. Encourage the students to count aloud with you
5. This activity can work equally well with counting by 2, by, or the alphabet.
