Weather Vocabulary Posters

The month of October is known for unstable weather in the place where I live. Warm days alternate with rainy ones. It can be cold at night but relatively warm during the day. People still remember the hot summer but the cold breath of the approaching winter is already in the air. It’s a great month to discuss the weather and the changing seasons with my students. So I’m going to put my recently designed weather vocabulary posters on my classroom walls soon.

Irregular Verb Charts - Printable Posters

Irregular verbs are one of the most challenging aspects of English grammar for non-native speakers and especially for kids. There are a lot of irregular verbs along with their confusing forms in English which makes it impossible for young students to memorize them quickly and easily. When I was at school I had to learn lists of irregular verbs and their past simple and past participle forms by heart. But it was hard to hold them in my memory for a long time anyway. It was a boring and painful experience. Now, being an English teacher, I ask myself what I can do to help kids memorize common irregular verbs without turning the process into a torture for their brains. And as you know, my go-to method of teaching English vocabulary to children is visualizing things. You might have already seen my irregular verb flashcards and puzzles. And recently I decided to design printable irregular verb charts in the form of posters incorporating pictures to visualize 100 verbs.
