Online Flashcards with audio

In Teddy Talk, Big Bear Banter and the induction packs for P4-7 and Secondary we have all used flashcards to learn new vocabulary.

MES have now put their flashcards online with audio. Great for use on chromebooks and during the current online learning. (slight warning in that uses American english so need to be careful using some of the vocabulary for UK English speakers eg trousers – pants)

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.
