Thought I’d share this again:
I’d like to draw your attention to the link of the left of my blog, Free Rice. I stumbled upon this website years ago while teaching English. It became the standard classroom activity when a student finished his or her assignment early; and they loved it. It quickly evolved into a competition among classmates to see who could amass the most rice!
Here’s snapshot of how it works: Select one of eighteen categories. (I had my students stay on vocabulary and grammar, because that was my subject, but there are lots of other categories.) Questions appear on the screen. For each one you get right, 10 grains of rice is donated to fight hunger around the world. The questions get harder as you answer correctly. Switch subjects anytime you want. And the rice just keeps piling up!
This is a great site for students to review their skills…
