Every Friday I’ll send you a wonderful website that my classes and my parents love. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of your students as they are of mine.
This starts as a dictionary, but it’s so much more. There are flash cards (multimedia flashcards, which use audio and video to communicate their message), videos, translations, a forum for Q and A, a word of the day, a phrasebook, conjugations. I use this as one of my sponge activities, students can go to when they have leftover minutes in tech class, and check whatever they need to check. Sign up’s free and allows you to make your own flashcards and more.
