NIVÅANPASSAT PÅ ENGELSKA – Patricia Diaz Här tänkte jag försöka samla specifika digitala resurser som kan användas i engelskundervisningen i de grupper där man har lite extra behov av att förse eleverna med mer individanpassade övningar på olika nivåer. Den här sidan är alltså ett komplement till den ”stora” länksamlingen för engelska som du hittar i menyraden under ”Länksamlingar” högst upp på den här sidan. Där hittar du också en länksamling över digitala verktyg. Gissar att det är verkligheten för många och att många av er har massor av bra tips att dela med er av.

Readtheory är ett bra komplement till den övriga undervisningen. Newsela – en (snygg!)

Four speaking activities In this post, I would like to share four speaking activities that worked very well in my classes. There are two games to practise comparatives and superlatives and two activities to practise describing people. Four speaking activities – Superlatives and comparatives The first two activities help your students practise the usage of comparatives and superlatives. The first one is a simple board game. Ask your students to find something that will serve as their counter. Superlatives and comparatives – board game pdf If a group of students finishes early, ask them to play again. The second speaking activity demands very little preparation. Who is the best _________? Once they complete their questions, they work in pairs and read their questions to their partners. It is really simple, but it works. Four speaking activities – Describing people Print the following worksheet. Students must not show their worksheet to their partner. I hope that all the speaking activities will work for you.

Speaking aids Probably you agree that these little things make a lot of difference and it is with good reason why people spend time, money and energy to get the right small objects to help them put themselves and their loved ones into the right mood. Why use speaking aids Post-it notes Walls Coloured paper Small objects To control turn-taking As metaphors Conclusion Why use speaking aids In contrast, we often expect that our students have the right mood to speak without having anything that would help them to be in the right mood to speak, or any prompt that would help the flow of ideas. These small prompts or small speaking aids get especially important when children get into the age when they want to speak about themselves more than e.g. about the little animals or fairies in a tale. In this article, I will give you some ideas what little objects to use and how to use them so that students aged 12 upwards find speaking easier and less stressful. Original idea by Karen Sekiguchi
