A team at the University of Iowa developed this (now abandoned) very useful website a few years ago. It’s an interactive flash site with both audio and visual animation showing the process for speech production. It’s excellent for showing language learners points of articulation, or if you are linguist struggling with IPA or slight differences between languages, this is also a great reference.

Language-Specific Points of Articulation (English, German, Spanish): http://www.uiowa.edu/~acadtech/phonetics/#
A single page guide for how to teach the meaning and use of English demonstratives (this, that, these, and those). Includes example training methods for using the classroom environment as a teaching tool and instructions on how to introduce this concept to beginning learners.
The Thousand words is an excellent vocabulary building and refresher activity for classroom and homework use. It provides a listing of the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language ranked by frequency. It’s an easy filler exercise for the classroom and works at most levels.
