I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Scratch, which is a programming language which teaches kids how to code in order to make their own interactive games or stories.  I just came across CODE-MONSTER which has the same purpose of teaching code language to kids but is much more basic.  Kids carry out very simple tasks in order to get an idea of how coding works.  The results are instant.  Every task carries out some type of visual action that can actually be seen on the screen. I think this tool could be very motivating for those students who are interested in game designing, web page creation, etc. because of its simplicity.
Have a look and try it out yourselves!

Infographics are a great way to present grammar, punctuation or common spelling mistakes to your students. Not only are they good for students but also for many of us native speakers who often make the same common mistakes!  How many of us have misspelt 'there' or 'their', 'meet' or 'meat', 'who's or whose'? Present it on an infograph and get your students to create others. A great visual way for it to finally stick in your students' mind....and in yours!
