Passing It On: Four Ways to Gamify Your Language Time

Many of you know that I love to hang out on Twitter. Well, I found a fantastic article with really cool tips to spice up my language time by Jennifer Findley at Teaching to Inspire.

In passing on the information, I am not going to ruin a "good read" by telling you what Jennifer wrote. You may have heard of some of the tips but that's okay. As a teacher of almost 35 years, I have heard them, but I really needed a reminder for my language time. I got inspired all over again just reading the article, so hop on over to Teaching to Inspire by clicking on any of the links or the picture above. There is even a freebie included (I totally LOVE freebies) 

Speaking of freebies, here are a few of my own. If you want to know more about any of them, just click on the picture.

Please remember to leave a comment in the comment box of any freebies. It encourages the creaters to make more freebies. I usually just write "thanks" in the comments boxes when I grab freebies, because I know it helps the teachers who made the products, and it is a great way to encourage our global colleagues.
Have a great day!
