Football World Cup

As I`ve already told you Football World Cup is about to come and there will be many interesting activities to work in Link To The World. Today I`m going to present you one which is a Padlet which I called Football World Cup Teams. Students are going to post about their national teams.It could be infografics with stats, videos and why not chants. Maybe you or your students don`t know how to use Padlet, so I will post a tutorial by Richard Byrne to introduce you this amazing collaborative tool.

This is our padlet Football World Cup Teams.Join us and work with your students:


Write a textbook for your students

As a member of  The 30 Goals Challenge I was inspired by the goal proposed by Bulton Burns:Share A Page Of Your Future Textbook. I totally agree with what he said about the importance of presenting students motivating material created by yourself .You as a teacher are the one who knows what your students need to reinforce and the areas you have covered. Many resources that we find fell apart in real classroom use.It demands you more time to modify them than to design ours.Besides, your activities can be more communicative because you know about your students interests and you will meet their needs.You can create more motivating activities adding cliparts and attractive designs which will encourage your students to practise more.Undoubtedly, they will benefit because their learning will be meanignful.
These are some of the pages of my future textbook:
