Just a quick post to share a link I love for starter activities. The ifaketext.com website allows you to create fake iPhone text messages. As you can enter in the name of students, using one of these at the start of a lesson can really grab everyone’s attention. I have attached an example – a dull translation task really, but because I have used the name of one of the students in the group, they all read intently to find out what the message is saying, esp. the student whose name I have used.
