She has started with sites related to spelling of words with prefixes and suffixes – http://livebinders.com/edit?id=8312 could be good on an IWB as a warm up activity – or students on individual computers.

She uses it for her yr 8 class as revision and a bit of Friday fun – she breaks them into random groups and uses the 6 available PC’s in the room. 15 minute rotations gets the whole class having a’turn’. For each activity she asks them to post interesting new words to the discussion board on their NING. Also find Jenny @nenifoofer her Personal Learning Network: http://livebinders.com/edit?id=6500
