Create Instant Interactive Text Based Activities Creating computer based materials can be incredibly time consuming and also very frustrating as websites and web based content can change so quickly, that's why it is always so nice to discover tools like Textivate which can enable you to create instant interactivity using almost any text you find from around the web. All you need to do is copy and paste your text into the Textivate window and then click on 'textivate now'. Here you can see some text I have copied from the Goldilocks story which I found on the Project Gutenberg site. Now I get a range of different exercise types to choose from. There are quite a few to choose from. You can also have the text arranged vertically so that students drag and drop the parts into position. Some of my favourite task types it creates are the instant gapfill activity. And the text reconstruction activity ( you can choose how many letters from each word are missing and even have all of them deleted if you want to.) Click below to access the activity.

Idioms | VocabularySpellingCity Idioms are so much a part of our everyday language that students who are native English speakers may not even notice that phrases like break a leg do not make literal sense. An idiom is an expression whose meaning is different from the literal meaning, such as It’s raining cats and dogs. The idiom does not mean cats and dogs are falling from the sky, but rather that it’s raining very hard. Students will encounter idioms in their day-to-day life, either in conversation or literature. Teaching Idioms In addition, language arts teachers must specifically take into account teaching idioms to English Language Learners (ELLs), who typically require explicit instruction and additional practice to understand idioms in context. Although idioms are found in all cultures, they may be confusing to ELLs, students who did not have early exposure to English literature or language, and young learners. Idioms are covered throughout K-12 language arts. Practicing Idioms Other CCSS connections

Free Is Good Open educational resources (OER) are found in the public domain and can be used for free for teaching, learning, research, and other educational purposes. These materials can be retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These “5R permissions” of OER allow you to not only access the materials and resources free of charge, but also to make them even better. Sounds good, right? But what’s really out there, and why should you use these resources? There are several examples of OER available, including image and audio resources, books in the public domain, video and audio lectures, interactive simulations, game-based learning programs, lesson plans, textbooks, online course curricula, professional learning programs, and online learning platforms. Why You Should Use OER OER allow educators to adapt instructional materials to the individual needs of their students. OER also guarantee that cost is not a barrier to accessing high-quality, standards-aligned resources. Where to Look
