Observing a colleague’s Year 12 lesson, I loved the way she used the game Articulate! as a speaking warm up to get the students familiar with a set of vocabulary.  Having recently introduced good old items in the school bag with Year 7, I decided to create a support so that they could play a version of Articulate.  This is my Articulate Classroom objects support powerpoint which enabled them to effectively describe an item in their bag.  I was amazed how well they did.  A very successful lesson starter which gave them a lot of confidence.
