You do not need a FLES site to LingTECH through languages: Check out some of my projects using basic JAVA sites.
This ecard and avatar Java site lets your students interactively carve a pumpkin. After the carving (the sustained affective stimulus), do a print screen (directions at the end of this page) to create a document that can turn into any language. Sample below:
www.theoworlds.com/birthday– I use the birthday greetings option to enrich and enhance the “How old are you?”- “I am__ years old” lesson. Also good for practicing saying the dates of birthdays as it keeps them focused on their work. Sample follows:
www.theoworlds.com/valentines– My favorite Oworlds card gives you many options for sending an ecard as Valentine cookies that students can decorate. I use it to teach endearment phrases in Spanish- Sample follows:
www.theoworlds.com/christmas– As the name suggests, this is the same gist in a Gingerbread/Christmas Tree motif. For the rest of the body parts, I use the gingerboy or gingerbread girl to practice genders. The tree is the other option,and colors, shapes, and numbers can be used for it. Sample follows:
1. Press the PRTSC button at the top of your keboard- this saves the image

4. The picture will appear in your slide
5. Open the “picture toolbar” and crop the picture
6. Title the slide, and save it.
