Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… - The Best Sites For Making Crossword Puzzles & Hangman Games I’ve already posted a list of sites where both teachers and students can make more sophisticated online games that would be useful for language development — The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games. Today, I’d like to create another “The Best…” list, this time focusing on more simple and “old-fashioned” word games like crossword puzzles and hangman. I’ll share places where you can create these games for free and have them hosted online so anyone can play them at anytime and will also list sites that allow you to easily create the games, but for printing out hard copies only. Either way, the only way I think these activities provide occasional useful learning opportunities is when students create the games themselves. Then, they can share them among their peers. Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Making Crossword Puzzles & Hangman Games: Just Crosswords is an easy way to create an online crossword puzzle. Play Kids Games is the latest addition to this list. Related

Creating Mobile Worksheets with QR Codes Published 14 September 2017 Nik Peachey continues his digital teaching series by exploring how QR codes can be used to create mobile worksheets. He provides simple steps to help you create them, plus a fun lesson activity download too! Many teachers underestimate the degree to which they already use technology, particularly in their lesson preparation. Taking a digital document and transferring it to paper to give to a classroom full of students (most of whom own some form of digital device that they could be using) to read and manipulate seems like an act of madness when there is a much better way to do this. The first step to this process is getting your documents online. Another simple alternative is to convert them to simple webpages and you can do this in minutes with It’s simple to add links to other web-based resources from the page and you can also add images or embed video from YouTube to these documents just by adding a link. Creating QR codes is simple.

Aprende inglés con Gareth H. Jones A simple blueprint for making creative ESL worksheets Published 13 October 2017 Robert Dobie is an ELT teacher and owner of the popular ESL resource site, All Things Grammar. This article follows on from Three ways to get the most out of speaking activities and is the final in the series. In this post, Robert talks about how to create effective ESL worksheets. As language teachers, we are all very familiar with worksheets. We know one when we see one. Step One – Brainstorm: Take a large, blank piece of paper and make three columns. Step Two – Make Connections: Take a minute or two and scan the three columns. These three words, you may recall, form the basis of the instructions of my worksheet called ‘Scissors Crossword – Places Around Town’ [Before class, the teacher cuts out the crossword clues and gives one clue to each student to remember; the students then tell the clues (from memory) to their classmates]. You can see how I used this strategy in another of my worksheets called Grammar and Listening – Present Perfect.
