As an ESL teacher I often find that a lot of worksheets in activity books lack enough activities and are filled with a lot of empty space. The activities that are provided take a few seconds to do before moving onto the next page and rarely review or expand on what they have learned.
I have included the first 5 worksheets in this pack. You can find the remaining worksheets at:
These phonics worksheets were created to give students a wide range of activities that would allow them to improve their writing, reading and comprehension skills and to increase their vocabulary. Each section builds on the last, starting with the basic writing practice to reading a short story for which they will illustrate later. I have had great success in using them with my own students, especially for those that lack focus and it also gives them a good sense of progression as they work their way towards the final activity.
In my own classes I try and use the worksheets in the following way, but feel free to use them however feels most beneficial to your own students:
Before handing out the worksheets check what vocabulary the students already know for the given letter.
Demonstrate how to write the uppercase and lowercase letter on the board.
Introduce the 5 new vocabulary
Give a short explanation of each of the 4 activities.
Most students should be able to go through the worksheet by themselves once they have done it once.
Note: If some students are completing parts too quickly, ask them to call for the teacher to check once they have completed a single activity.
