'Placemats' for English.

Placemats are an excellent resource for teachers who do not have a permanent classroom. Carry these placemats around to lay out on the tables, and learners focus on key topics.  Many of the examples in this Padlet are in Word or PowerPoint format and can be edited. However, placemats are super easy to make yourself. 😊
