BBC Bitesize

BBC Bitesize is a site for native English kids but some of the games and exercises could be used for English language learners.  Some of the games and activities can be embedded in a class blog or website too!  (See my Lesson Plans and Activities blog)

I only looked at a few activities but I really liked the KS1 punctuation game and the KS2 Word Types games which could be easily incorporated into an EFL class.

Compare and Contrast Map

Another great writing tool - especially for discursive essays.  Compare and Contrast Map allows students to organise their content before writing an essay.


Just stumbled across a great note taking site on Larry Ferlazzo's blog.  Biocube allows students to take notes online when writing a biography.  No registration required.  Students can then print out their notes and write the biography.

This is a great tool to use with writing skills classes to help students organise and plan their work.
