Whirred PLAY - a fun new resource for teaching homophones

Discussion in 'English' started by whirredplay, Jun 16, 2011.

  1. I have developed a brand new resource to aid the teaching of homophones called Whirred PLAY (www.whirredplay.co.uk). There is a board game designed for small groups and a classroom version designed for all members of a class to participate in at the same time. After successful trials of the classroom vesion I now want to roll it out to all educational establishments and am seeking advise on the best way forward.
    Whirred PLAY is a unique word game designed so that anyone can win regardless of their vocabulary and as a consequence is all-inclusive for every member of a classroom group to participate in with an equal chance of winning and is as appealing to gifted and talented students as it is to SENs.
    To see a video of Whirred PLAY being played as a TV show format (upon which the classroom version is loosely based) please click on the following link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbeIHUvvmI&feature=email&email=comment_received
     
  2. Look out for the new www.whirredplay.co.uk website where you can learn more about why this is an excellent new resource for the teaching of homophones to students of all capabilities.
