Thanks for sharing!
Very welcome....nice click and play with these on our Practice page (or just download that .swf also - everything here can be downloaded freely and played without the internet [ key for teachers I believe, many don't have supped up computers ]

I have some really good presentations to load up later this month....a full learning system for independent learners . Takes time :) Cheers,
Great ppt presentations. Thanks for sharing them. I've got a bunch of random powerpoint lessons that I've made as well. Glad to share them if you want em.


cool, please share and I'm sure someone can find them of use. JUst post up here in the Resources - Sharing forum when you have a chance. Just put them into the right category - Either ppt games or ppt presentations or maybe another depending on their objective.

Make a post on the main forum also if you want specific feedback. We can use/view and give you some feedback.

Cheers from this other long time Habs fan!


Here is a nice basic ppt I quickly put together from the Side by Side flash cards. They can be used to practice, review any of the grammar tenses. Great way to practice verbs - as Chomsky labels them - the working man's engine of language!
I made this ppt using www.piclits.com Just drag and drop the words after selecting your copyright free picture! Or go freestyle and type in your own words. Easy as pie. Use something like Snag It to get a photo of both the picture only and the picture with words. Then you are ready to help your students!

Here is a powerpoint full of Emoticons. Pictures showing emotions. Your students will be very familiar with them and it can/should generate lots of thought and language. Get the full screen version HERE.
Here is an alphabet powerpoint. Just Pictures. Pictures / answers Many ways to use -

1. Brainstorm and who can get the most answers?
2. Spelling dictation.
3. Slide challenge. go group by group and see if they can name them all. If so - they get points.
4. Story/ sentence writing. Put up a slide and students must make a sentence or a story connecting the pictures.

5. One of these things is not like the other. (like our ppt game here). Put up a slide and students finish the sentence ___ is not like the others because _________
