ESL Lesson Planning for Kids

ESL Lesson Planning for Kids

I know that this site is all about teaching in Korean universities, but at some point we've all found ourselves teaching kids during our careers and if you're like me, perhaps you felt a bit like a fish out of water. But, not to worry! Here are 4 stellar sites that you can use to plan ESL classes for children.

Barry Fun English

This is a site that one of my readers Neil recommended (thanks for the tip!) and here's what he says:

"Multimedia Games with a plethora of common topics/word-sets to choose from. There are also ready made or customizable worksheets available. Free games rotate monthly, or try a premium membership for a month for free. These games are a dream for kids with short attention spans. So ALL KIDS basically!"

Boggle's World is my favorite site for pre-made worksheets on just about any topic. Don’t re-invent the wheel! Just go to Boggle’s World.

Kids love puzzles and this is by far the best site out there to create your own, based on whatever material you are studying.  Crossword puzzles in particular are an excellent way to review material in an interesting way. Each puzzle only takes a few minutes to create using this site.

Based in Japan, this is the best site for complete lesson plans for your children's ESL classes. They are interesting, fun and will help you plan awesome classes with not a whole lot of effort. Perfect for the busy teacher!
