SZTAKI Szótár - Anagramma-kereső Generated by Anagram Lite (Copyright © 2001–2004 Zoltán Ivánfi) Mik azok az anagrammák? Az anagrammák olyan kifejezések, melyeket más szó vagy szavak betűinek felcserélésével kapunk, pl. matektanár = mértan átka. Feladványként, elrejtett üzenetek hordozóiként, vagy puszta érdekességként találkozhatunk velük. Az Anagram Lite használata Az Anagram Lite egy anagramma-kereső, tetszőleges kifejezésre (például saját nevünkre) megkísérel anagrammákat találni. A keresés az alábbi beállítások segítségével vezérelhető: Tanácsok az anagramma-kereséshez Az Anagram Lite alapértelmezett beállításai kb. 10–12 betű hosszúságú kifejezések kereséséhez optimálisak. Túl kevés találat esetén a szavak hossza legalább beállítás csökkentésével próbálkozhatunk. Túl sok találat esetén a hosszú és rövid magánhangzók beállítás eltérő betűknek számítanak értékre állítása „szebb” anagrammákat eredményez, miközben a kapott kifejezések számát is csökkenti.

Collocation:Meaning and List of Collocations A collocation is a combination of words that are commonly used together; the simplest way of describing collocations is to say that they ‘just sound right’ to native English speakers. Other combinations that may mean the same thing would seem ‘ unnatural’. Collocations include noun phrases like ‘ stiff wind’ and‘weapons of mass destruction’, phrasal verbs such as‘to get together’ and other stock phrases such as‘the rich and famous’ It is important to learn collocations, because they are important for the naturalisation of one’s speech. Here is a list of collocations to help you get started: Collocations starting with the verb ‘do’ Do me a favour Do the cooking Do the housework Do the shopping Do the washing up Do your best Do your hair Collocations with the verb ‘have’ Have a good time Have a bath Have a drink Have a haircut Have a holiday Have a problem Have a relationship Have lunch Have sympathy Collocations with the verb ‘break’ Break the law Collocations with the verb ‘take’ Take a break

Weather Sensory Bottles for Circle Time Last updated Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Last week I added a new element to our circle time routine in my two- and three-year-olds classes…a simple weather check. I wanted some sort of hands-on manipulative to keep the children engaged and make the concept of weather more tangible, so I decided to try my hand at making some simple weather sensory bottles. These sensory bottles only took a few minutes to make using bits and bobs from my craft stash, and the children really respond to them. To make these bottles, I used fillable craft bottles I found at Hobby Lobby, but you could use any size bottle you wish. Here are all of the different bottles I made- they coordinate with the weather choices on our little chart. For cloudy I used three jumbo white pom poms and some tap water. Our rainy bottle has small blue glass beads for raindrops, three brownish/gray pom poms (I swear they looked gray at 1:00 am the night I made these) for clouds, and the glycerin/water mixture. And there you have it.

Fun classroom practice of collocations By: Alex Case |Audience: Teachers|Category: Teaching English I don’t think anyone could argue with the need to learn collocations such as “extremely (not fabulously) sorry”, “go (not do) jogging” and “a bird (not chicken) in the hand is worth two in the bush” at every stage of language learning. However, there are all kinds of theoretical and practical problems with actually using class time to help students learn such things. Perhaps the biggest problem in class is that the activities which are usually put in textbooks (e.g. two rows of words which you must link with lines and multiple choice gapfills) are boring, uncommunicative and could just as easily be done at home alone. Collocations with two words You can also play matching games such as Snap and Pelmanism with paired up collocations, but these tend to work better with larger groups of words such as “do”, “play” and “go” for sports, dealt with below. Collocations with three or four words Collocations with a larger number of words
