    Textivate is an online tool that allows you to create and share interactive browser-based activities based on any text of up to 500 words. All sorts of possible applications at primary level. Click on the link to try it out:

  2. Having had a quick glance, this looks like it could be useful. Thanks.

    Remember, though, the point is that you can create all sorts of exercises like these based on any text (of up to 500 words) that you want your pupils to work on.

    Textivate now creates matching exercises too. AND you can include a text and glossary (i.e. of matching terms) in one resource.



    See this short geography text on weather and climate, for example:

    The blog link in one of the earlier posts no longer works as posterous has ceased to be.

    Textivate now prints worksheets too, if you are a subscriber.
