Something great!

 

Hello fellow mates!

This is something very useful for us, teachers.

I have discovered this website  by chance.  It is a wheel which you can use as a warm up, a revision, whenever you need to enliven your class…

Creating the topics of the wheel is a piece of cake and using it strategically could perk up your students.

After working on some wheels, I would like to give you some advice:

  • I suggest that you write about 20 choices. A bigger number looks a bit too chaotic
  • There are many colour themes but I would choose either “colorful” or “pastel” because the visual effect is awesome
  • Time: I would allow about 5 seconds just for the excitement
  • Wheel diameter: I suggest between 650 and 700 pixels because it looks quite big on my computer screen. However, you will have to check in your class projector…
  • Custom colors and text colors: I woul not bother. I like to see the topics in black and colour on the background.

I am currently teaching the Present Perfect, right before Christmas. Not a great idea, isn’t it?  However, I have come up with something that should help my students revise this verb tense after the holiday break. I  have created 20 different questions starting with “Have you ever…” mostly using irregular verbs. I expect some questions to be answered in the affirmative form and others in a negative form but we’ll see how it goes in class. There might be some surprising anecdote! 😉

HAVE YOU EVER…
