Classroom Crafts

As with all crafts, be sure to make one for your self in advance of teaching. Students love to help - ask a student to be responsible for sharp pencils, clean desk, and tidying up glue sticks and so on. Use the same clear English instructions in each lesson. For young leaners try "Please pass me one piece of square red paper that is next to yellow scissors".

Photos
My 4-6 year old ESL students loved this craft, excitedly running back and forth between our fish tank and their desk to make sure it was all done “just right”. They were so excited after school that I ended up inviting all the parents in to see the fish and to listen to their children tell them all about it.

The Craft
All printouts are black and white as your students will be coloring these themselves by observing the fish in your class.

The Worksheet
You may need to customise these to match the fish you have. I’d recommend getting at least one that looks like Nemo if you can.

Fish Tank Word Game
You can use this as a fun introduction to new vocabulary and is one of those rare games that can be played equally by children of any language ability.

  • Print one word sheet per student, plus one for yourself.
  • Chop words into strips (with a guillotine is fastest)
  • Sit with all the children in a circle with the word strips all shuffled in a heap in the centre.
  • Call out a word eg “Guppy”.
  • Using chopsticks the children pick up the word strip.
  • If you don’t have chopsticks then paint brushes or long pencils will sufice.
  • Once you have played a few rounds ask random students to call out a word.

  • Staple Remover

    Amazing handy tool! It easily removes the staple from high up on the wall then catches the staple so it doesn't fall to the clasroom floor. Game changer.
