Obama's Trip to Europe in Pictures | The Photo Desk

Obama's Trip to Europe in Pictures | The Photo Desk | ELT resources designed for building EFL-ESL lessons & courses | Scoop.it
Monica MIRZA's insight:
Might well do as ESL speaking prompts : ask your students...
- which photo they like best or dislike most, and demand they justify & explain their answer, for instance...
-  guess when & where exactly the pics were taken (hide all the captions).
- Imagine what's just happened / what's about to happen
& more! ;)

Manipulating/Memorizing LEXIS & decorating classrooms | Word clouds

Manipulating/Memorizing LEXIS & decorating classrooms | Word clouds | ELT resources designed for building EFL-ESL lessons & courses | Scoop.it
Monica MIRZA's insight:

Define a specific grammar category (names, adjectives, verbs, adverbs....) for each grop of pupils. Each group then has to look for about 10 words  related to a season -eventually they'll use a word cloud generator (mine was Tagxedo) to create a visual that'll decorate their classroom.

This works for any subject (days of the week, colours, months, elements....), helps the kids memorizing vocabulary and... they love it :)

My umbrella word cloud displays different grammar categories though...
