Recycling and Revising
Recycling and revising – Take Two!
This is the Recycling and Revising section of Busy Teacher. Here you can find
worksheets related to this topic for use in the ESL classroom. For your beginner classes, use this
fun revision worksheet
, which includes four different activities to review the alphabet, numbers and colors over the course of two or three class periods. You could also just choose one of the available activities as a warm up, practice, or review activity for your students. Look through the rest of the section to find other great worksheets.
Most of the worksheets in this section focus on reviewing material which is an important thing to do in ESL courses. This is especially important if you plan to build upon previously learned material during a lesson and for students to commit the material to their long term memory. Use your warm up to review material you plan to use in class. This will allow you to see how much students remember and build their confidence before moving on to the introduction of a new topic. Reviewing often throughout the course will help students retain information longer. It is easy to learn something in one lesson only to forget it by the next day so students need constant practice.
