Weather: use of images and written sentence to encourage speakingUploaded by Emily Hillier, Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK)
This activity took place in the context of a lesson on learning vocabulary for different types of weather. This clip is an extract from the final whole class session of the lesson. The IWB was used to present images of different types of weather with corresponding sentences, such as 'it is windy', to ensure the learners could use the vocabulary in a simple sentence. Individual learners were selected to read the sentence in front of the class using the image as a prompt.

The display is so big and it’s easy for them to focus on that then.

It’s got sounds on and we can play games on there because it’s a whiteboard.
