Smartboard Resources

EAL Highland have developed some Smartboard Resources to support Teddy Talk and Big Bear Banter activities. Sadly, the file type cannot be imported into the Blog so if you would like a copy of any of these please contact peter.fenton@highland.gov.uk with your email address and which resource you would like to see and he will send it on as an attachment.

If anyone develops their own Smartboard resources then please share with Peter. Thanks.

Language of the Month

Language of the Month is a fantastic interactive video website created by Newbury Park Primary school that celebrates the diverse languages in our schools today. You can use it to listen to children speak clearly in their home languages, and as the basis for a host of extension activities.

For a plethora of teaching and learning ideas based around the website here’s a great support booklet.

Or for something rapid, here’s 10 Quick Activities for Language of the Month.
