A set of two simple, yet useful and effective PowerPoints. The first shows the alphabet in order, the other in random order and where each letter only flashes briefly. The resource can be used for general alphabet practice, but the random order is useful for difficult letters like vowels a, e, i, and consonants g and j.

Housework is a set of three related resources:
Housework is a very funny video (with a rather predictable ending!) accompanied by words and jolly music and designed to introduce, complement or summarise the two related resources below.
Although aimed at M8-E2, ESOL/Literacy groups of all levels will enjoy this video and it is bound to prompt disucssion. Supplied as a zipped WMV (Windows Media Video) file (6.8 MB). A big thank you must go to Janet Fletcher who co-authored this video!
