Name:English Banana English & Drama Resources

Brief Description of the Site:
This site, from Channel Z Television in the United Kingdom, has a wealth of language arts games along with solutions. Complete with grammar rules, quizzes, punctuation tips and links to utilizing the site in different languages, the site serves as a digest with games for students from elementary through high school level. One thing to watch for is the British spelling of words that might be different from American counterparts.

How to use the site:
Free worksheets by subject might prove most useful for educators leaving the games links for students to explore on their own time. A vast list of topics (in .pdf or .jpg format) are available for download including reading, writing, flash cards, vocabulary, listening and speaking, to name a few. For those wishing to use the text versions only, that option is available. Fifteen pages of "Sites for Teachers" include lesson plans, kids' pages, more games, and distance learning links to explore.
