As any ESL teacher knows, having a grab bag of enjoyable learning activities helps to liven up any ESL class. These activities are useful for teaching inductively, filling gaps and introducing topics. Here is a list of four books that are sure to help you in times of need.

Grammar Games by Mario Rinvolucri

Teaching grammar through games has proven to be one of the most successful methods of helping students acquire grammar skills. Grammar Games by Mario Rinvolucri succeeds exceptionally well while encouraging students to enjoy themselves. This book is my top choice because it's a great way to expand on key concepts that can be rather dry at times.

Recipes for Tired Teachers by Christopher Sion

We all know the scenario: it's the end of class and we've got another 15 minutes to fill. Or maybe you need to expand on an especially difficult topic, Recipes for Tired Teachers by Christopher Sion will provide you with a number of original activities for your classroom. Activities are also easily adaptable for level and learner type.

101 Bright Ideas by Claire M. Ford

101 Bright Ideas by Claire M. Ford provides a wide variety of helpful ideas and activities that can be easily be applied to any classroom or learning situation. This book is another must-have for teachers who spice up their lesson plans.

ESL Teacher's Activities Kit by Elizabeth Claire

ESL Teacher's Activities Kit by Elizabeth Claire is a well-organized resource book. Activities are listed by subject as well as level. The activities employ a wide-range of modern teaching techniques and should interest anyone who is looking to bring a more innovative style to their classroom teaching.
