How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

Most students will find revision boring - this is mainly because they think staring at the page will do!!! Unfortunately, as much as I stare at the kettle, the cup of tea does not just magically materialise in my hands!! I find this strategy is useful for an active and creative approach to homework. Please model with students by challenging them to memorise a sentence, make it longer and longer each lesson... they get seriously involved!!!! Examples in French and Spanish but concept is applicable to any language.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.

Perfect Pics©  For Learning  Language Digital Version

Perfect Pics© For Learning Language Digital Version

Language educators know that pictures are indispensable for the many visual learners in the language classroom. That's why the 596 pictures in the Perfect Pics© For Learning Language Digital Version, book have been developed. Teachers realize that pictures are mandatory in the language classroom for all levels and all ages. They help in many ways: - Visual learners learn better when they can see what they are learning or hearing. - Non-readers (either due to age, ability, or unfamiliarity with the writing system) need pictures as they acquire new words. -Translation is not needed if pictures are used and therefore acquisition is faster and more permanent. - Activities and games using pictures are very helpful and fun. - Oral work is made possible with picture stimuli. - Flashcards or individual picture dictionaries - Use for visually responding to songs or other listening activities One of the main advantages to using Perfect Pics © is that there are very many verbs, adjectives and other pictures. These are very accessible and ready for you to put on your quizzes, flashcards, games, exercises and more. There are patterns and suggestions for use in the back, as well as answers or labels in English French, Spanish, Chinese and Arabic. Of course ANY language learners can benefit from using these pictures, regardless of language. The digital pictures included are: 32 everyday expressions subject pronouns (You- singular, plural, formal and more) Numbers Colors 112 verbs Prepositions of place 48 adjectives school body clothes family house weather 64 food pics nature 48 animals (good for science teachers, too) 32 places professions transportation extra subject pronouns (especially designed for learning Arabic) (These pictures are excellent to use FOR YOUR CLASSROOM ONLY- NOT FOR YOUR PUBLICATIONS OR FOR YOUR FRIEND. It is clip art, but not copyright free clip art.)

HISTORY: Vikings: Meaning of the term 'Norsemen'

HISTORY: Vikings: Meaning of the term 'Norsemen'

What do we mean by 'Norsemen'? The word Norsemen means 'men of the North'. Also covered briefly on this sheet: use of the word 'country', 'kingdom', points of a compass, and the meaning of 'Scandinavia'. A photocopiable printout, hand out, or worksheet that students can colour in and highlight as they learn about Vikings, history, and geography. Suitable for all ages as a stand alone sheet or part of a wider topic. This resource was created as part of my ocean row around the coast of Great Britain, following the same routes taken by the Vikings a thousand years ago. If you would like to follow the expedition, there is a weekly film documentary series on YouTube (Sarah Rows Solo) and Amazon Prime worldwide (search 'The Great British Viking Quest'). I do live stream sessions of the boat build, and expedition on Twitter (@GBVQuest), and free virtual sessions for schools on Skype in the Classroom. Follow the Great British Viking Quest expedition on social media using #GBVQ If you would like to get a copy of The Great British Viking Quest printed colouring book which includes these printables, you can get it for $1 a month by becoming an expedition patron: www.patreon.com/GreatBritishVikingQuest Website: thegreatbritishvikingquest.com
