Ocean /Sea Decor Set

So... finally got away for a well-earnt school holiday break and visited some beautiful beaches down the coast. It was great to get some fresh air, beach and exercise. AND it has inspired me to create a new decor (decoration) set for classrooms, which you can check out here:


I had a lot of fun making these sea critters! I was thinking today that you could even print them, cut them out and hang them from the ceilings, so it felt like you were in the sea! (: Some of the nametags etc would be big enough..Otherwise, I hope people enlarge the posters (:

Some cute monsters to teach colours! (Or 'colors!)

These are fun and quirky, to engage students. They also have a lot of detail, so you can expand on them (such as stripes and spots, sad, crazy and happy monsters etc). Ask questions about them or play a game of 'Guess who?'

I have made a set of posters and matching flashcards, all available at tpt in both British/ Australian/ New Zealand and North American English (to account for small spelling differences):





Hope you enjoy them!

Spanish (Español) Room and House Vocabulary Cards and Posters

So, with the able skills of a native speaker friend, I have made the house/ room vocabulary cards in Spanish!  So now handy for tourists and people studying the language (great for visual learners!):

This will add to the clothes and preposition of place I already have in Spanish. More soon!

More Clothes Resources!

Well, you can't complain when your job means you spend a few days cutting out paper! I had SOOO much fun making these little paper clothes! They remind me of the paper dolls you dress with paper, which you don't see so often now. I used to love playing with them (although I worried about their backs being cold...)

Anyhoo, I have extended the original clothes flashcard/ picture sets and now have clothes vocab sets in:

INDONESIAN! (To make my Indonesian teacher proud!)

BRITISH ENGLISH! (because you guys call them flip flops...)

AMERICAN ENGLISH! (because jumpers are a different thing to you guys...)

SPANISH! (Just because they have awesome words for clothes!)

I've run them past native speakers, so it's been a busy few weeks...Anyway, check them out at TPT (free to join, get awesome stuff....)

Clothes Vocabulary Cards

When I was overseas teaching English, one of the resources that I needed most often but was hard to find, was flashcards for clothes. Students not only needed to learn the vocabulary, but the adjectives to describe them (stripey, spotty or polka-dotted, floral, plain etc) and the order to use those adjectives (e.g. 'She was wearing a blue, floral dress.')

I never did find a good set, so I have made my own. This one is in Australian English, (as the possibility of finding one of those was even rarer!), though I will soon add a British English and American English version to localise the language (so we don't argue what a thong is (; )

There are some pictures available online as posters, but they always seem to be made out of 1980's (non-matching) clipart or hand drawn black and white drawings from when men wore their pants around their bustline. So I cut mine out of cute paper to give them a fun, bright, quirky look and feel, and so they'd have a bit more heart.

They are available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Clothes-Flashcards-Australian-English-2616420

I'm also translating these into world languages - so far I have French: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Vetements-French-Clothes-Vocabulary-Flashcards-2616453

Prepositions of Place (Where is...?) In Indonesian and Italian!

For those teaching world languages and finding it hard to get good quality resources, I'd like to announce new Preposition of Place flashcards in Italian


and in Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia)


A fun way to engage students to teach them where things are. Each card has the word, the word in a sentence and a cute cartoon explaining the word.

These are in addition to my versions in English, Spanish and French which have been really popular. I am excited to get more languages out there at last. It takes a while as I usually get a native speaker to check them for me (:
