The “Wizard English Grid” Is A Nifty Teaching & Learning Tool

| 1 Comment

Jason Renshaw was generous enough to share on his blog about a nifty tool he’s come-up with called The Wizard English Grid.

That link will take you to the direct PDF download. You’ll see it’s a simple sheet laid out in a grid. You might be thinking, “Big deal!”

Don’t stop there, though. Go to Jason’s blog post Wizard English Grids for “Finding Out” to learn how he uses it. After reading it, I immediately printed out the Wizard English Grid for use in my own English Language Learner classroom.

Jason promises to write about more ways he uses the grid, so, if I were you, I’d subscribe to his blog to not miss them! He’s also going to keep all of his “Wizard” ideas in one place on his blog.

  1. Thanks for posting about this, Larry. The Wizard English Grid is certainly getting a lot of people’s attention – perhaps because of its inherent simplicity and versatility.

    I’ve just added another application for WEG, focusing on how to use it to highlight syllables in English words.

    There are hundreds of potential applications for WEGs, and I’ll be adding the ideas on a regular basis. To access all of them at any stage, I’d direct your readers to this generic category link on my blog:

    Thanks again, Larry, for spreading the word (and really glad to hear you’re going to try this in your own classroom!).

    All the best,

    ~ Jason
