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...

Why not ask your pupils to collect similar pictures on London standard cabs on line and write their captions ?

The two "illustrated histories" can then help practise comparison/similarity/difference... and get them to choose their favourite one (& justify their choice).
