Body parts: reading to label an imageUploaded by Shona Whyte, Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France)
This class of primary school learners of English (8-9 years old) are involved in stationwork in three groups. One group completes a worksheet, another listens to an audio recording on individual mp3 players, and a third is at the IWB. The learners at the IWB work independently, dragging and dropping text boxes with the names of different parts of the body on to a large image of a girl. When they have completed the task, they pull back the curtain to reveal a copy of the objects in their correct positions, allowing them to check their answers.

They had to learn the different parts of the body and now they're reinvesting it in their stationwork.
[…] They are all together and when one is wrong the others correct him and that's important
[…] Its important to read the words because I do a lot of oral, speaking English and now they read the word. It's another work for us because it's the beginning: this is the first time they learn English.
[…] It's interactive they can (move things) and its better than to have a sheet of paper and to do it on the sheet of paper. They are more engaged and this board, when I open it, all the eyes go there, and they are "wow!"
Apprenant : Là par exemple, on avait les parties du corps, j'avais oublié où il fallait le mettre. Il y avait des choses que mes copains y n'avaient pas mis, du coup, je les ai mis à leur place comme ça, j'ai mis ce que je savais.
Learner: Here for example, there were the parts of the body and I had forgetten where they should go. There were things that my friends hadn't put, so I put them in their place. That way I put what I knew.
