How to Teach Online with the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum

File Types Included in the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum Membership

There are 3 file types for the primary resources in the curriculum: 

  • PDF
  • PowerPoint 
  • NearPod

These can be used in a variety of ways to create engagement online.

Scroll down for information and video tutorials on using the materials online!

Horizontal & Vertical Options

All of the resources in the membership include a vertical printable option in PDF & PowerPoint. These vertical resources are important because they:

  • Consistent-looking resources across print and digital formats.
  • Students to print & write with actual pencil & paper even during online sessions.
  • Leave lots of white space around the sides for annotation and interaction while teaching online.


We have also created horizontal slides of our resources for teachers teaching online or who want to project them on smart screen.

With many levels already complete, you’ll love the variety of options now available.

A landscape format for the resources is under development to make online teaching even easier.

Announcement: Digital, Horizontal Slides for Online Teaching Have Been Added to the ESL Curriculum Membership!
