I have recently been asked to share a few examples of my learning mats.
Learning mats are worksheets that I prepare for students with everything they need in a lesson.
They all contain the new vocab or grammar, space for students to complete guided practice and space for students to complete independent practice. Sometimes, they also include a Quizlet link to practise the vocab.
I find that these are a huge time saver in the lesson and that they offer extra support to my more vulnerable students.
You may notice that they have 2 wide margins and 2 narrow ones. This is so that I only have to trim 2 sides of the mat before it gets glued into books, so it saves half the trimming time – I love a shortcut.
I hope you find them useful!
