Worksheet Genius

This is a brilliant, free website where you can make worksheets for your class in no time at all. 

In the ‘English’ section, there are anagrams, bingo games, flashcards, handwriting practice, worsearches, mixed up sentences and more.  In the maths section, I have used the clocks worksheets when teaching time.  There is also a free clip-art page, plus more stuff I have yet to properly explore. 

Well worth a look … and very useful when you need to make a worksheet for that class that starts in 5 minutes’ time!  Click here to access the site.

What’s in the bag?

Originally designed for children (I think), this game would be good for Entry 1 or beginner learners.

Students are given three words and must guess what’s in the bag from a choice of three possibilities.  Many of the words students are given are quite easy, but having a dictionary to hand may help (or get the students to work in pairs at the computers so they can help each other). 

Excellent for vocab learning, and the students get to hear how the words are pronounced, too (albeit with an American accent!).

There are many hangman sites on-line that students can access. In particular this site is user-friendly and easy on the eye. It has a list of categories to choose from (countries, musical instruments, frequently misspelled words, etc.), and there is also a facility for creating new lists of words – very handy if you want to use this game to review previously taught vocabulary.
