  Just before the summer break I used this set of Flying Tiger Story Telling dice to great effect in a few of my elementary classes. Watch my video, on YouTube, as I briely explain how the dice work, and then share three stories created by three groups of students.


 Paul reads Flood! from the Oxford Reading Tree series. Join him as Biff, Chip, Kipper and all, watch the rising flood waters creep slowly towards the Robinson's home.

    (Bonus Point: Can you find the easyJet reference in the pictures?)

Guess the missing letter.

Last month, in our Junior High School class, we went on a virtual tour of Liverpool using Google Maps.

The main thrust of the lesson was to give directions and identify different types of shops, or other places of interest. Starting at Lime Street Station, and taking in St.George's Hall, we moved towards Church Street passing the St.John's shopping centre (they found the Beacon surprisingly fascinating!) Just before we got to Church Street they spotted this shop, missing a letter from its' signage. So a great opportunity for them to discuss what kind of shop it was, and what the missing letter might be!

Thanks Mobi e Hut!

Can I have a 't' please

Sometimes I think my upper-elementary school aged students know more English than they let on.

During today's online session, we were playing hangman on the shared virtual whiteboard (big thanks to Whiteboard Fox by the way) when we had this combination of incorrect guesses...

...and the next letter they asked for....

....a 't',

...which was also incorrect!

 What has a face and two hands but no eyes, ears, mouth body or legs?

   Elementary school aged students who joined my online classes should have no problem solving this one!
