printable resources to use in class
Our worksheets complete the online activities. However, you can use them independently, in any way you like. Choose from grammar posters, flashcards, worksheets, and card / board games.

The interactive lessons were built in Flash. This technology is currently out of date, and our Flash-based activities won't run on modern browsers. Also, they do not work with all phones and tablets.

Although Flash will be obsolete by the end of 2020, we will keep the Flash content going as long as we can. If you are not able to load and play our interactive lessons, visit this page for help.
