The University of Victoria in British Columbia presents 200 vocabulary exercises for students learning English as a second language. The exercise is very simple and looks like a resource already presented on this blog : illustrated vocabulary. An image is presented to the student and he or she must select that proper word. The vocabulary words are in the following categories : furniture, school, office, home appliances, kitchen utensils, clothes, animals, coins and food. An interesting fact, the coin category is adapted to the Canadian audience.

Teachers everywhere have until 30 June to submit an entry to a new, special category to honor them in the World Young Reader Prizes, the annual awards from the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) that recognise success in engaging the young.

A new “Digital NIE (newspapers in education)  Teacher” award the will honor the educator who has created the best set of lesson plans that use the electronic version of the newspaper in class, and with the best result for all parties involved.

“The increasing pervasiveness of interactive white boards and other classroom technologies has allowed more widespread study of the electronic versions of newspapers, especially when not all students have computers in class,” said Aralynn McMane, WAN-IFRA executive director of young readership development.

The entry for this and for all categories involves creating a Powerpoint™ presentation following prize guidelines. Full details can be found at http://www.wan-ifra.org/worldyoungreaderprize

The winning teacher will receive 1000 Euros for their school and come as our guest to the 63rd World Newspaper Congress and 18th World Editors Forum, set for 12-15 October in Vienna, Austria.

The other Young Reader Prize categories will honor newspapers for excellence for actions during the past two years in to promote newspaper reading and usage, on all platforms, among those under 25.

The five basic categories are Editorial, Making the News, Newspapers in Education, Public Service and Brand.

Three special categories for 2011 are "Connecting with Mobile", for a newspaper that has success in engaging the young via mobile telephone delivery, “The Natasa Prize for Printing Plants” for a newspaper printing plant action that teaches the young about journalism, and "Enduring Excellence," to honour young reader programmes that have continued to deliver benefits for both the newspaper and the young for at least five years.

Entries for all categories involve creating a Powerpoint™ presentation following prize guidelines. Full details can be found at http://www.wan-ifra.org/worldyoungreaderprize

Top prize in each category is 1000 Euros and free registration at the WAN-IFRA World Young Reader Conference from 16 to 18 November next in Madrid, Spain. Judges will also choose a "Newspaper of the Year" that will receive a free registration and hotel and travel costs for the conference, as will the Digital NIE Teacher winner.

The World Young Reader Prizes are supported by Norske Skog, the Norway-based global paper producer, as part of its partnership in WAN-IFRA's Newspapers in Education Development Project.

WAN-IFRA, based in Paris, France, and Darmstadt, Germany, with subsidiaries in Singapore, India, Spain, France and Sweden, is the global organisation of the world’s newspapers and news publishers. It represents more than 18,000 publications, 15,000 online sites and over 3,000 companies in more than 120 countries.  The organisation was created by the merger of the World Association of Newspapers and IFRA, the research and service organisation for the news publishing industry.

If you need a periodic table, well layed-out and all in colour for your student, the one published by the National Research Council is great. It is available on-line as a website with an hyperlink for each element that takes your to a description and as a PDF, ready to be printed on cardstock and laminated to be used a reference in your students' binders.

Still part of the "4kids" series, "biology4kids" delivers concepts in biology in a language easy to understand by students at the end of elementary school. Unlike the other ones, this one starts with the scientific method, reasoning in science, experimental evidence, logical reasoning, deductive reasoning and inductive reasoning. This content is interesting, but it is a bit surprising to see it only in the biology unit.

The content of the biology website is very well layed-out with many pictures to enhance students understanding of the concepts. The content includes taxonomy, the kingdoms, labels and naming, relationship between organisms (commensalisms, competition, mutualism, parasitism, predator-prey), animal and plant cells, organelles, cell functions, osmosis, passive transport, active transport, mitosis, microorganisms, microscopes, prokaryotes, eukaryotes, fungus, photosynthesis, plant structure, invertebrates, arthropods, vertebrates, mammals, systems as well as some human anatomy and physiology. For each section, there is a quiz for student to check their understanding of the concepts. There is also a slideshow for some sections presenting many pictures with comments. A great introduction to biology!
