What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Map or Mop (Pronunciation Circles) - November 23, 2015Lesson Collection #4 - Lesson 6c
With this lesson, students work with these two vowel sounds, i.e., Map vs. Mop. The eighteen pairs of words on each worksheet concentrate exclusively on these two sounds. (Clack - Clock / Pat - Pot / Jab - Job / Flap - Flop, etc.)
The excitement of lesson is that students become physically involved. They cut out the circle from the worksheet, place it on a piece of carbon paper and pin the circle and carbon paper into place on the worksheet. Then they listen carefully. Student A reads one word as printed on the worksheet i.e., Map. Student B looks at the pair of words Map - Mop, then decides which one was read. Student B then rotates the circle so that the printed arrow at the top of the circle aligns correctly with the appropriate word's arrow inside the circle.
Once done, Student B traces the squiggly line assigned to that word. Student A then reads the next word and Student B finds the word, aligns the arrows and traces the new squiggly line. This will be done eighteen times.
When both students have finished, they remove the circle from the carbon paper and PRESTO! There will be an image or a treasure Map on one paper and a scrubbing Mop on the other. (If both the pronunciation and the listening were accurate. If not, a disappointing collection of random squiggles will fill up the circle!)
There are four similar lessons:
Stamp or Stump (Lesson Collection Set #4 - Lesson 06a)
Bear or Bell (Lesson Collection Set #4 - Lesson 06b)
Crown or Clown (Lesson Collection Set #4 - Lesson 06d) -and-
Ship or Sheep (Lesson Collection Set #4 - Lesson 06e).
A HUGE THANKS !!
Because of what you do at EFL4U, my school is one of the best in the city. I think it’s really important for students to have fun, to act, to react and learn English by using it! With your active lessons, my students do all of that, and more….
Grammar is taught after or before the lessons… and all of my students learn while having lots of fun.
Kurt, EFL4U IS THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE RECEIVED. EVERY YEAR, YOU ARE MY SANTA CLAUS.

The result of your workseets in the classroom is amazing. Students go crazy about this new kind of practice material, which is completely different from what they can find in Textbooks.
On the other hand, all worksheets foster speaking and interactions, which are so difficult to achive. I hope this site will keep on working hard to provide us, not so imaginative teachers, with ready-made quality material for use in the classroom.
I have used your lessons with a large range of classes including pre-school, business and everything in between.
I’m EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with your Lesson Worksheets and am happy to be the proud owner of the entire Lesson Collection Sets!
Thank you very much,
I have been teaching English in Latvia for 5 years now to such varied student groups as Music College, military and Bible College students. I came across your site about a year ago and it has been incredibly helpful in my teaching. I have found all of my students - from the highest ranking military officer to the most ordinary school-kid - enjoy your lessons. The worksheets and the ideas are fantastic! Thank you so much for making the English teacher’s work easier, more varied and much more enjoyable!!!
Your collection of lesson worksheets is really great. It makes my teaching much easier and funnier. I work in an International House School in Ukraine. We all enjoy your lessons, especially our students. Your illustrations are just great.
