Reading Comprehension Worksheets: Food and Cooking

Food and cooking are popular topics for English classes at school. That’s why I keep on designing printables dedicated to these topics to make my classes more fun and engaging for my students in elementary and middle school. If you follow my blog, you might know that I have created a large printable kit that includes worksheets, flashcards and games dedicated to food. I have recently decided to add some reading comprehension passages and related worksheets to my collection of ESL/EFL resources designed to help children learn and expand the food and cooking vocabulary.

The set includes 3 reading comprehension passages with worksheets as well as a collection of more than 100 printable flashcards dedicated to food, cutlery and tableware

The food and cooking reading comprehension set includes three passages and related worksheets that offer activities that ask students to answer questions, match words and pictures, fill in tables and crosswords etc. The passages tell about cooking, making cakes and the story about a lion who loved eating fruits and vegetables rather than smaller animals.

Silent Letters in English - Charts with Words and Pictures

Silent letters are a very interesting phenomenon in English language. I teach English to non-native speaking kids whose native language does not have letters that are not pronounced. Therefore all too often my young students find it very weird that they need not read certain letters in English words. They struggle really hard to get accustomed to these unusual and confusing spelling rules. So I decided to pay special attention to silent letters in English when I was designing my printable poster-sized phonics charts. I’ve created multiple charts featuring words with silent letters or letter combinations along with relevant pictures in order to make those charts child-appealing. The charts feature nouns that can be easily illustrated.

I’m sure there are multiple languages in the world that do not have such thing as silent letters (e.g. Spanish and many Slavic languages). I hope my printable charts will help my fellow EFL and ESL teachers introduce silent letters in a visually appealing way to novice English learners speaking these languages.
