Learners of any level can use these cards in a number of ways:
1) the learners can use their dictionaries to find the Spanish word for the animal or the action in question
2) learners can use two sets of the cards to play snap, but should also say the name of the thing on the card while doing this
3) learners can write the Spanish word on the back of the card and use them as flashcards to learn vocabulary
Year R: Cut and stick food in place to make menu. Children will need guidance as to which dish is appropriate in each section.
KS1/KS2 (use KS1 sheets): The most able will copy out the words onto their sheet from the help sheet and draw a picture of the food. Lower ability can cut and stick words and draw their own pictures.
KS3 (use KS1 sheets): Use the menu template to create a menu, writing in words and drawing in pictures. Can be used with or without the help sheet, depending on ability.

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!!<br />
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.
Educational Research focusing on a particular strategies employed to enhance Modern Foreign Language students' learning and performance with specific reference to Carol Dweck's work on Mindset. I hope this article will inspire colleagues to consider ways in which to take students' mindsets into account when planning language lessons in particular.
