2 programs (downloads) for elementary students

Not web2.0 but definitely EFL. 2 programs that my students have enjoyed in the past -

Talkany - very lightweight text to speech program (375kb) which reads out any English or Spanish text pasted in. The user can choose from different fun voices and speeds, such as:

whisper, monotone, robot, boy singing, old woman ... and many more.

There is no need to install the program, simply run it from the link, exellent for kids who need that extra support when…

Ning in the Elementary EFL Classroom

Hi everyone, long time no see!

This is a crosspost from my new blog http://efl20.blogspot.com

I've been so sidetracked for the last couple of months, translating the Ning platform to Hebrew, setting up a network for my EFL students and kicking off "Edureshet" a social network for Israeli educators (reached 50 members yesterday -…

Classroom Activities: warm ups

Lately, I've been having some problems with attention, and I figured I needed to change things up a little. So I started thinking about ways to change the warm up activity.

I tried a .kfn file today about Canada and America, and it went over well in my 5th and 6th grade classes.



I know a warm up is supposed to be an entrance activity, but should it always be active?…

Stolen, but appropriate...

Nicked from the Writersalmanac.publicrdio.org

Raising Their Hands



Sometimes I dream about my students,

the pink of their palms

red and raw.

One student, seven feet tall,

his long back

hunched over the desk,

Activities around the classroom: functional decorating

This came up in the blog about teaching classrooms with 40 students, and I, having just finished putting all my ideas together, thought it would be a good idea to start a new post and offer some of my own activities. The reasons why I decided to start decorating my classroom:

1. It was sparse to begin with and was just way to beige!

2. I wanted to give the students things to do in their own spare time.

3. I wanted to start using them as alternatives to punishments: just…

If you're looking for blog posts...

I've been blogging at my website (ESLetc.com). Recently, in addition to my podcasts, I've been looking at some global issues-themed videogames in terms of how they might be used with language learners.
