On Saturday I attended the MFL show and tell in york organised by the lovely @suzibewell. I listened to fab MFL colleagues sharing a wide range of ideas and came away with lots of inspiring ideas. One of my favourites was the idea of trash or treasure, presented by Clare Seccombe @valleseco. The idea is you tell students which type of words to find, for example adjectives or numbers, and these go in to the treasure chest.
For more information, I recommend taking a look at Clare's presentation.
I have made some treasure boards in English, French and Spanish which can be downloaded here.
I have also created a cardboard treasure chest using the app foldify. For a more kinaesthetic approach, I am going to give these to students along with a plastic beaker for a bin. You can download a pdf version of the treasure chest template.
I have been teaching languages for 13 years. I enjoy finding and developing new ways to engage students with their learning. This page is designed for sharing anything and everything that may be of use to others. Enjoy!
