Inspiring & motivating - how it should be

I'm a newbie here.

I teach ESL (settlement English) to adult refugees and immigrants.

My class has been working this term to create short movies about 'How to catch public transport' for students at a lower level. It has been a steep learning curve for us all but oh so inspiring in so many ways. They have just gone for it. They're engaged, excited and teaching each other along the way. I'm stepping into the background - there to support if needed.

Now we' re… Continue

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…

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 thought of short readings with CCQs, or vocabulary exercises , and also just karaoke listening files and questions. 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

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,

his arm out and above him —

he could be waving

or stopping a train.

Another student wears eyeliner for the stage.

She bends from the ribs

her body forming a tiny "c,"

her hand up sudden as a…

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…
