Are you looking for some fresh, new ideas for warm-up activities or games for your ESL or EFL classes? Then you’re most certainly in the right place.
Keep on reading for all the details you need to know about this book of ESL warmers.
Get your English Classes Started the Awesome Way with ESL Warm-Ups
I’m sure you want to begin your English lessons less awkwardly. I always hate saying, “Hello everyone” and being met with dead silence. Or, asking, “How are you today?” and getting a few awkward fine’s or hello’s.
There is a better way, trust me. I only wish that I’d figured it out far sooner during my ten year teaching career than I did. I’m a bit ashamed to say that I soldiered on with the awkward for at least a couple of years until I figured out that using some ESL warm-ups is a much better plan of action.
The reason I love using ESL warm-ups so much is as follows. You can:
- Ease your students into using English
- Save time when lesson planning
- Have more fun in your classes
Ease your Student into Using English
Many of your students will not have spoken English, or even given it a single thought since your last class. It’s not ideal, but it’s the reality if you teach in a place like Korea or China where English just isn’t that widely spoken.
Begin the lesson with a warm-up activity that eases students back into English, orients them to the upcoming lesson and focuses their attention on the work ahead.
Effective ESL warm-ups are a valuable teaching tool, but finding good ones takes time, a scarce resource for most teachers. That’s what makes this ESL Warm-Up book so valuable. It helps you get the class back into the English mindset while reducing prep time, so you can focus on other important teaching tasks.
The activities themselves are extremely easy to use. They start off with a brief overview so you can get the big picture of what each activity involves and whether or not it’ll work for your specific class. Then, you can have a look at the step-by-step instructions that start from the prep you need to do before class to how to explain and run the activity during class. Finally, don’t forget about the teaching tips that will help you to avoid some of the most common things that can go wrong with the specific warmer.
