There are 2,000+ words depicted in flashcards. The vocabulary are provided in 100+ sets covering 60+ themes and I'm adding to them regularly. These are flashcards not clip art. Each flashcard set is ready to print and go with matching handouts, PowerPoint flashcard presentations, game cards and bingo cards. Plenty of cards for supplementing or designing your lesson plans.
There are 2 options for MES Worksheets. You can create your own custom worksheets on Tools for Educators or you can use the ready-to-print worksheets here on MES English.
Tools for Educators is an MES site that hosts free, online worksheet applications and templates that let you make and print custom materials to suit your classroom. You can make spelling, reading, writing activities, crosswords, wordsearches, mazes and other classroom games using all of the images from MES.
Ready-to-Print Materials: A growing section of MES-English. There are talking worksheets, worksheets for introduction of grammar points, a phonics workbook series, award certificates, clipart to make your own worksheets, song sheets, nursery rhymes and chants cards, and vocabulary building worksheets to match the MES Flashcards.
There are 22 versatile, communicative games for the classroom available for printing and a list of 15+ other games to play. These games were designed to be flexible and useful across a broad range of target language and great care was put into making them fun, interesting and student centered. Many are great for one-on-one. You'll find Big Town, High Town, Eigomon, Bombs Away, Treasure Island, Spiders and Candy, Get Four, the Paper Game and more. The games were designed around the principle that if the game is just a grammar game, the students will bore quickly. Thus, the goals of these games are not "perfect English wins the game," but the students must communicate in the target language to accomplish their goal and win the game. In doing so you'll be surprised how many times they use the language and hopefully perfect/internalize it through repetition.
MES has 2 options for phonics materials, MES Phonics and Fun Fonix.
MES Phonics has flash cards and handouts for presentation. There are alphabet cards, posters and materials to get you started on the right foot with your phonics curriculum.
Fun Fonix is a 6 part workbook series. The website also has worksheet makers you can use to create custom phonics worksheets and additional activities for your classroom needs.

What is MES English
MES-English.com is a site containing actual resources, made by myself to be downloaded and used today. This page is not a collection of links to resources, with links to resources, with a collection of links to resources ... (which frustrated me enormously and forced me to make everything myself.) I will try to keep it short, to the point, and help you find what you're looking for fast. You do not have to register but an e-mail letting me know something worked well, was helpful, or with suggestions would be great.
