Top-rated resources to help you make form time valuable for both you and your students

Making form time count is no mean feat. Once your charges have finally settled down into their own version of your seating plan and the register is done, you have mere minutes before the bell rings to signal the beginning of the next lesson. But on those occasions when you do get to spend a bit of time with your tutor group, why not make the most of it? Well-planned activities can encourage teamwork, creative thinking and help you get to know your form. So get started with this collection of some of the best-reviewed activity ideas on Tes.
