Glitter Graphics


English test - 1st unit - 5th grade


















Download here

This was the first test I've made for my 5th graders (this year). It's about the first topics we teach here in Portugal - meeting people, school objects, numbers and colours.

I've used a witch picture to test the colours because Halloween at the corner ;)

Describing people's character


Hi everyone.

I started this school year teaching at primaries but on the 23rd of September I was unexpectedly placed on a 2nd cycle school which means I’m teaching 5th and 6th grade students now.


I know that these grades are considered primary school in most countries but here in Portugal It’s not. The kids move to a different school by the time they complete the 4th grade.


I was quite lost at the beginning but now I’m finally settled and enjoying the new challenge.


I’m posting here a mini test I’ve handed to my 6th grades about the topic “describing people’s character”. It focuses mostly on adjectives.
I hope it’s useful.

Images and cards for Halloween (list of sites)


A very kind teacher from ESLprintables listed these sites so we can easily find materials for our Halloween activities.

I decided to post it here as well.

I hope it's useful!
