You Speak It is a site that takes an interesting twist on learning a foreign language. Using videos that range from Presidential speeches to other random news clips, users are able to toggle between 50 different language subtitles and answer questions about the content from the video. This is a great tool for those students learning a foreign language. Combined with some social elements and lesson resources for teachers, this is a site with a lot of potential.
Listen and Color is one of the most popular activities I do in my classroom! It is great for helping students develop their listening skills. Also, it lends itself to being a FUN, interactive assessment to check listening skills. Students listen while the teacher reads aloud either a single-step or multi-step direction (depending on the grade/ability level of your students).
This freebie includes a set of 7 riddles-poems which I wrote when I was teaching my MEGA FARM ANIMAL THEME PACK. These poems are my original work and I used them with very younger Kindergarten students as a part of an oral comprehension-listening activity. They are fairly simple but the rhyming words and tune helps children develop language and they are a fun free addition to any teacher's farm animal unit.
