Cootie Catchers revisited

A few years ago I shared my cootie catchers (snap dragons, chatterboxes, fortune tellers) blogpost with you.

Today I found Gail Lovely's website which has a cootie catcher template in Powerpoint which you can customise and print out.

So, my German class made these:

Very useful for getting year 10 to speak German to each other.

I'm doing the same thing tomorrow in French.

One tip - print them A3 size.

GCSE French Revision sites

As I'm teaching GCSE French this year I've put together a list of free sites our students can use to revise by themselves.

In no particular order, they are:

BBC Bitesize: no longer up dated but still useful

Revision World: includes core vocab and tips on how to revise

S-cool: topics and tips

Fun with Languages: interactive games for students of all levels from beginner to A2 level

Memrise: free but you need to sign up to this (or login via Facebook or  Twitter)

Zut: this site is free after 4pm - lots of interactive games, good fun

Gordano School's French Revision page

Revision Centre French page

If you can think of any more let me know in the comments section.
