Ten Reasons to Purchase Reproducibles

1. Stretch Your Book Budget Dollars

If you purchase a class set the cost is about $25 x 25 student books = $625. Get similar content by purchasing one of our reproducibles for less than $60. These books are cost effective.

2. Expand Your Teacher Resource Centre

For less than the price of a class set you could have 10 different reproducible workbooks in your school resource centre.

3. You Can Photocopy Legally

The publisher grants permission to the purchaser to photocopy, unlike those other books.

4. Enrich Your Curriculum

Keep your students’ interest high with a rich variety of material.

5. Openers

Does your class start at nine but the students trickle in from 8:45 to 9:20? Use reproducible exercises as class openers. Get your students working in English right away.

6. Reduce Your Prep Time

Keep your prep time to a minimum. The exercises in these books are ready-to-go. Even if you are paid $30 per hour, but you prep on your own time for two hours for one hour of teaching, you are really only making $10 per hour. Think of purchasing prep time at about fifty cents an hour. Save hundreds of hours of prep time for a small investment.

7. Service Students with Diverse Levels and Needs

With reproducibles you can pick and choose from a wide variety of material to meet the specific needs of individual students.

8. Supply Teaching

Supply teachers, don’t panic when you get that call, with just a few of these books you’ll have lots of material on hand.

9. Great Homework Pages

Assigning homework has never been easier. Copy and handout.

10. Review and Remedial

Not every student understands the lesson the first time. These books are great for review and remedial.

A Fun-Filled and Lively Thematic Question Card Game For 3 – 12 Players Terry Rivest

This is a fun way to engage your students and get them talking. It is easy to play. Everything you need is included:

 instructions 175 question cards (10 themes plus a miscellaneous category) answer cards betting cards







How To Play

Divide the students into groups of 3–12. 1. Each player needs a set of answer cards (A, B, C) and betting cards (5, 10, 20). Each player starts with 50 points.

2. The first player (1) draws a question card from the stack and reads the question and possible

answers, inserting the name of the player on his/her right (2) in the blank line. For example, “What is Maria’s favourite meal of the day? A. Dinner. B. Lunch. C. Breakfast.”

3. All the players place one guess card, A, B, or C upside in front of them.

4. Next they place one betting card, 5, 10, or 20, upside down in front of them.

5. Player 2 chooses an answer card without showing the others and places it upside down. S/he

does not bet on his/her own answer. When all answer cards are placed and betting cards are down, player 2 reveals his/her answer. Then all the other players reveal their guesses and bets. The bets are recorded, points are added to or taken away from the 50 points each player starts with. (Each group should appoint one recorder.)

6. Encourage your students to discuss the question, and the answers.

7. Next, it is player 2’s turn to take and read the next question card.

8. Play continues until each player has at least one turn reading a question card. More rounds can

be played. The player with the highest score is the winner.

Let’s Move On - Prefix and Suffix Exercises

A Four Book Vocabulary Building Series Based on Themes Marilee Carlson Students increase their vocabulary by building upon words they already know. An understanding of prefixes and suffixes increases a student’s comprehension more quickly than learning individual words in isolation. Each book in this series is organized around groups of prefixes or suffixes that deal with common themes.

The Lesson Plan For Each Unit

1.

A

basic presentation of the eight parts of speech and their functions in English sentences.

2.

The suffixes/prefixes are introduced.

3.

The first page of the lesson is filled out together as a class.

4.

A matching activity provides further introduction to the suffixes and prefixes.

5.

A list of common words that contain the suffix/prefix is discussed as a class.

6.

Sentence Practice A. In the cloze activity students choose words from the Word Bank, alter them

and complete the sentences.

7.

Sentence Practice B gives students a structured opportunity to change an underlined word to a new word with the suffix/prefix and make an altered sentence e.g., Sam bakes pies and cakes. / Sam is a baker. The words to be changed are underlined in Part B of each practice.

8.

Sentence Practice C is the same as B but the students are asked to determine on their own which words to change. All of the words to be changed are included in the list found on the second page of the lesson, so students will always be able to refer to the list to see which words in the practice sentences can be combined with the suffix/prefix.

9.

Unit Review - Sentence Practice Quiz: Students are presented with sentences from the previous sentence exercises and they are required to change a word to a new word with the suffix/prefix and make an altered sentence.

10.

Unit Review - Four In A Row: Students attempt to place four consecutive markers in any direction on the board by giving correct sentences using the words given with a Unit suffix or prefix.

11.

Unit Review - Dominoes: Root word and suffix/prefix pieces are paired to make a word. Students can begin with 5 dominoes and take turns constructing some sort of shape (circle, rectangle, house, car) by forming correctly spelled words

12.

Unit Review - A Board Game: Players move around the board by making new words that contain

a suffix/prefix joined to the word on the card that has been drawn. Depending on the degree of

difficulty desired, players can be asked to spell the new word. They can also be asked to use the

word in a sentence.

Answer keys are included.

Sophie Wang’s Phonics Book for Adult ESL Students LINC Themes - Includes a CD

Sophie Wang Learning to decode on the letter-level is an inevitable process for a student to become a successful reader, but many phonics books are either designed for children or for illiterate adult native speakers, not for adult ESL students. Sophie Wang was inspired by her adult ESL students to develop phonics materials for ESL learners with practical, useful content for everyday English. This is an important distinction; the vocabulary which interests adult ESL learners is different from early education students because of their needs and motivation. A five-year old may be interested in learning pony, but an adult ESL driver may eagerly want to learn Private Parking - especially if they have been ticketed or towed! Sophie’s 175 page book covers 10 LINC themes of interest to adult ESL students.

Multi-Level - Pre-Benchmark, CLB 1, CLB 2, and an Audio CD A Three Book Series by Maria Crapsi & Agnes Kucharska

NEW!
NEW!

Each book in this three book series has three levels, Pre-Benchmark, CLB 1 and CLB 2. Each level begins with an illustrated target vocabulary or vocabulary section then moves onto vocabulary building exercises, and reading, writing, listening and speaking exercises. The audio CD is a great way for your students to hear more native speakers of English in your classroom.

Body & Ailments + Health & Pharmacy - Includes an Audio CD

This is the third book by Maria and Agnes. Body and Ailments + Health and Pharmacy works well with any beginner class, but is ideal for a teacher with a multi-level beginner class. All teachers know the challenge of finding material for a multi-level class. It’s difficult to find one workbook to meet the needs of all the students. We created our own material to overcome this problem. Each theme has three beginner levels. Most target vocabulary is illustrated, but in some cases higher level students will be asked to use their dictionaries to define the target vocabulary. The students reinforce the new vocabulary with time-tested exercises. Once the vocabulary is reinforced the students practise their new vocabulary through reading, writing, listening and speaking exercises. A rich variety of exercises will interest and engage your students.

Teachers often wish there was an audio CD with workbooks. They want their students to hear more native speakers of English in their classroom. The audio CD included with this book has four native speakers - 2 male and 2 female. The CD content and track numbers are listed in the Table of Contents. Also look for the symbol seen to the right on the exercise pages. It indicates an audio CD track is available and the track number.

Romeo & Juliet Three Levels For Beginner ESL & Literacy Students In One Book

Adapted by Rose Coffey

Teachers frequently ask for age-appropriate stories for their young adult and adult students at the beginner level. This book includes three adaptations of Romeo and Juliet for beginners. The beginner student only has to learn 96 words to understand the simplest adaptation. And these 96 words are ones that they need every day in their lives! Only three words in the story are not on “the most commonly used words” list: Romeo, Juliet, and Tybolt. If the students can describe the basic simplified plot of the play with only 96 words, imagine what else they will be able to speak about. This book is ideal for the teacher who has a class of beginner students at a variety of levels. Each of the three adaptations comes with its own vocabulary list and exercises. The exercises include:

verb tense exercises

fill in the blanks

true or false

word find

crosswords

adjectives

nouns

bingo

syllables

spelling tests

alphabetical order

a unit on family

comprehension questions

opposites

match the word to the picture

 

The appendix includes a website activity, and tips for putting on a student-generated Romeo and Juliet play.

Real Stories Real Heroes, Real Animals & Real People

Pat Dyck

This book is for students who are reading sentences and ready to move on to stories. Each of the sixteen uplifting, high-interest stories in this book are 100-150 words long and written in about 20 short simple sentences. The author found her students could read simple sentences but were intimidated by the paragraph form of news stories. She presents each story first in a comic strip form - pictures with key nouns and verbs. The second version of each story is in an easy-to-read sentence-by-sentence format, i.e., each sentence is on its own line. Later in each unit your students will read the story in paragraph form. This technique is called scaffolding, the students is successfully eased into paragraph reading, and it works .There are a wide variety of ready–to–photocopy exercises to reinforce new vocabulary and ideas. The exercises:

comprehension

true or false

pronunciation tips

short answers

sentence completion

corrections

negative sentences

verbs tenses

people, places & things

Dani MacArthur & Thane Ladner

Out of Your Chairs! was developed in ESL classrooms. The authors saw the need to supplement the tradi- tional desk, pen and paper language lessons with active, physical and communicative activities. Students can only sit for a certain period of time before their capacity to learn diminishes. Active ESL games present a structured, enjoyable was to continue learning a new language. Some students learn languages with their whole body and Out of Your Chairs! provides a variety of ways of experiencing English kinesthetically. During the games students communicate with each other and the teacher. Students come to life! Shy students forget about being self-conscious as they become caught up in the game. Hard-to-motivate students are suddenly working, driven by the desire to win. The games index lets you see at a glance the type of game, level, prepa- ration time and playing time etc. The games are coded by level, beginner to advanced. Each game comes with straightforward instructions and has many reproducible templates and card sets. The games have an instant appeal but the more they are played the better they work.
