Thanks for all the amazing feedback on the new site design yesterday – thank you!

One big request was to have all the VIP content available on one page.

There’s quite a lot out there, but let’s try our best!

P.S.  If you’re not a VIP Member yet, you need to buy your Teacher’s Set before clicking on these links! 🙂

2019 12 Month Homework Calendar

To keep students (and parents!) on track with the Homework Program

 A4 Flashcards & Minicards

As there are so many of these, the best way to get the A4 cards and Minicards is to choose the lesson you wish to teach from the curriculum and print from there.

( Ninja Tip:  Don’t print them all out at once, print them as you need them. Very often you’ll find yourself using the computer more and more and not needing as many flashcards!)

VIP Card Games

Just like its more famous cousin “Uno”, this is a card game based on the traditional Crazy Eights game.
We have several versions available for you here, the classic “numbers + colours” version, a “family + vegetables” version and a prepositions version. This is the really cool part about the game, once you’ve taught each theme separately it’s great at linking them together to make longer sentences.

Colours & Numbers School subjects & days Prepositions
Weather & Countries Personal pronouns (he, she,
they, we, I, you) & Stationery
Clothes & Colours
 Christmas Prepositions  Family & Vegetables  Colours & Shapes
Colours & Fruits  Halloween Monsters &
Beard Colours
 Haunted House
e.g. Skeleton is in the kitchen.

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Have been requesting this a few times, and is VERY happy you took the time to put it all in one place.

    Thank you!

    Wow this is fantastic! Now would this link be somewhere on the webpage so that I wouldn’t have to do a search to find this blog post?

    Just an aside…

    I had my meeting with the elementary school teachers and it went rather well. I had been worried that once teachers were used to teaching with the books offered by the Ministry of Education in Japan, it would be harder to get them to try GE. I found it to be the opposite. I pushed that the books Hi, Friends! is lacking in repetition, thus the kids forget what they learned in previous lessons. I stressed GE and said how the materials really help students retain the language.
    What I found was that the ones nodding their heads were the ones who had used Hi, Friends! They saw what wasn’t working and could appreciate what does! I haven’t been this hopeful in a long time. This year looks to be a good year!!!

    Really great! Thank you!

    go under “help”~ here you can find everything.

    I agree with your observation. When I did the teachers workshop at a school where teachers had depended on “Hi Friends” I had them do a lesson on different topics on day two, with either GE or HF There were actually several teachers who chose “Hi Friends” but only to underline the difference and show how bad it is compared to GE.

    On the other hand though I have met several teachers who would not go for GE even though they know how good it is. These are all those teachers who are really really good; good in speaking English, good in creating a good classroom, ~so I guess to them it doesn’t matter what material they have, and their rule is: We teach what MEXT tells us to, as this is our job!
    It also seems to be some kind of protection in case there are complaints from parents. If they use MEXT materials they can always refer to this and the responsibility is not theirs.

    Oh well, maybe we should write a book on this some day. Let’s keep the spirits high; I do agree: this is a very special year, having started very positive. Let’s put all in we can and see how it goes!

    Great to hear all this, yes there does indeed seem to be a bit of a sea change going on, we just had a great Head Teacher with us on Sunday who was asking all the right questions!
