Rainforest Weblinks!

Posted by watseducation on January 9, 2009

As I am searching for resources and such, I thought people might be able to use these.
I haven’t checked them all yet – but many look good.

Downloading videos from Youtube etc.

Posted by watseducation on December 15, 2008

Video Download Tools

I thought this might prove useful.
I have been throught the use of Mozilla Firefox as a browser and using the Download Helper add-on, and it is good but as they have improved the service that add-on provides, it has got more compliacted and doesn’t always do what I want it to do!

I have found this link though and it is great!

It is to Downloadtoolz.com
It gives download programs for Youtube, Teachertube and other video hosting sites. (I must tell you though it gives them for other more ‘unsavoury’ videos sites too)
But the Youtube, and Teachertube ones are excellent, and gives you an flv file (flash video file) that you can then insert into a SMART file to watch as part of a lesson – just what I want and it is FREE too!

Hope it is useful to you too!

End of the Holidays!

Posted by watseducation on August 20, 2008

Well the end of the holidays are in sight and so I am back to the planning!

I am trying out some new formats for planning as given to me by my HT, and am finding them rather laborious!

Hopefully things will get quicker!

I am on the lookout for places to find topic planning – cross-curricular, or if you have any you would like to share with me and or with this site it would be appreciated!

Please send me a message/leave me a comment – whatever is easier!
Thanks

Take care for now

English-Slovakian Word Banks

Posted by watseducation on July 10, 2008

As we are all aware the increase in New Arrival pupils (EAL) is a challenge which we are all facing.

I have found this Slovakian word lists and thought they might be useful to others.

I have similar for Polish but will post these later (when I find them!)

They can be hard to find on they web when you are searching in a panic because a new child is starting this morning and they speak no english because they only entered the country yesterday.

I have been there and know how pressured you can feel!

If you know of any more places to find resources – let me and everyone else know here – any files you want to share to let me know and I am happy to put them up!
