Example answer: When I finally got home it was eleven o’clock. Procedure Make sure students are familiar with words showing order in races eg first, second, last, at the back, following, ahead, in(to) the lead, behind, up the field.Tell the students to imagine that the words are horses who are going to race to the other side of the board.

The Twelve Memes of Christmas : a seasonal homework challenge To keep your students busy over the holidays (if you have holidays in your teaching context, and if not you may just want to add a bit of seasonal fun to classes in December) and to practise some digital remix literacy, here's a little challenge. As you can see, it's based on the carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, and to introduce the challenge and get into the remixing mood, there's nowhere better to start than the song itself and some Youtube parodies. For the original song there's a very kitsch karaoke version here (and lots of others to choose from if you want something a little less chocolate box). Once your students have got the hang of the original song (if they don't know it already), then you can move on to the parodies. There are so many out there, I've chosen a couple that appeal to me and my students. And so on. They have now completed the first meme of their Christmas challenge. Posters and photo-based memes Keep calm and …. Avatars, comic strips and animation
