A quick starter for binary numbers, using the Magic numbers trick from http://www.mathmaniacs.org/lessons/01-binary/Magic_Trick/<br />
I have made it into a powerpoint to be used by the teacher to wow the students when starting binary numbers. After this I used the PinkPopFizz workbook resource by clockmender on TES. It worked a treat.
Use these cards to play quiz quiz trade. Cut them out so each student has their own card with a French phrase and the English translation. Students need to be familiar with the vocab before starting.
Students stand up and find a partner. A reads the French phrase, B has to respond with what that means in English. A uses the English on her card to verify and to nudge B in the right direction. Once guessed, B reads her French phrase and A responds with English. Once both have done this, they swap their cards and go off and find another partner to begin again.

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. The process of conducting the research along with the results made a difference to our approach to expectations and encouragement of the students and led to some changes in classroom practice.<br />
These flashcards can be useful as a bookmark for students (cut in half, fold, paste) or as a set 4 flashcards (perhaps joined by a tag) that can be handed out at the beginning of each lesson and collected at the end. They will enable students to use TL when communicating with teacher and also with each other when doing pair work or games. Enjoy!
This is a vocabulary mark book for test results (we use it for grammar and vocabulary tests but it can be used for any subject) which can monitor test results, retests and ranks the class for each test to encourage competition.
I have included instructions on how to use the tracker.
