pjgallantry 11:06 PM #eltchat yeah, why not give them a break? we won't have anything to teach them in september otherwise. :)
NoraTouparlaki 11:06 PM RT @Fuertesun: Can I start by asking Why can't we lay off em and give em a break? #eltchat 3months in greece is too much....need sth to do
sandymillin 11:06 PM @Fuertesun giving them a break is good, but nice for them to have some fun things to do to keep it up #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:06 PM @Shaunwilden They're at school all yr in private classes etc.. #eltchat
bcnpaul1 11:06 PM @Fuertesun giving them a break is god but they need something IMO to keep them engaged #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:06 PM RT @Shaunwilden: RT @Fuertesun: Can I start by asking Why can't we lay off em and give em a break? #eltchat It's a good question :-)
mkofab 11:06 PM Exam time. Can't take part in #eltchat but great topic. Look forward to summary.
eyespeakbrasil 11:06 PM Next hour of my tweets are devoted to #eltchat :-)
Shaunwilden 11:07 PM @Fuertesun but for those that want to study we shuld be able to direct them #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:07 PM @harrisonmike Great idea Mike! #eltchat
sandymillin 11:07 PM @Fuertesun think it's important to keep them interested in the lang...there's so much fun stuff for Eng out there #eltchat
naomishema 11:07 PM #eltchat - but if we agree to let them have a break what weill the chat be about?
harrisonmike 11:07 PM #eltchat OK, you don't give them methodology books LOL. But direct them to teen fiction, graded readers, maybe set up reading in cafes...
NoraTouparlaki 11:07 PM RT @eyespeakbrasil: @NoraTouparlaki I'm with you Nora - why? continuous learning? #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:07 PM RT @harrisonmike: #eltchat How about setting up a reading list for your students of books they might be interested in like this http://bit.ly/eltbooklist ?
Marisa_C 11:07 PM @KarenInGreece it is a bit too long - a lot can be forgotten, esp by young learners #eltchat
eyespeakbrasil 11:07 PM LOL end of discussion? #ELTchat
ShellTerrell 11:07 PM I think we can suggest activities for students to keep up their English skills but we should really suggest since it is their break #Eltchat
Fuertesun 11:07 PM @KarenInGreece maybe not why can't they be kids? #eltchat
DelaneyKirk 11:07 PM RT @ShellTerrell: A post I wrote about using games to get students learning English in the summer http://bit.ly/mdFOdZ #eltchat
eyespeakbrasil 11:07 PM Yes, let hem have a break #ELTchat
Fuertesun 11:07 PM @sandymillin Yes I suppose my prob is that there is no research that you put homework in and get smthng out #eltchat
KarenInGreece 11:07 PM @Fuertesun Well my sts have a 4-month summer break from lessons. It's too long not  to do anything, don't you think? #eltchat
bcnpaul1 11:07 PM RT @sandymillin: @Fuertesun also, some students ask for things to do over break! doesn't have to be like homework #eltchat > yes they do
Shaunwilden 11:07 PM @Fuertesun I agree with your ? I thought that's why it was called a holiday #eltchat
bcnpaul1 11:08 PM find things they're interested and tell 'em to keep up with those things by looking at websites in english  = real world need #eltchat
LibraryRemix 11:08 PM RT @ShellTerrell: A post I wrote about using games to get students learning English in the summer http://bit.ly/mdFOdZ #eltchat  #gls7
vickyloras 11:08 PM RT @naomishema: #eltchat - but if we agree to let them have a break what weill the chat be about?
pjgallantry 11:08 PM #eltchat of course, it depends on context - if the learners are in a NNES environment, they'll need more than if they're based in eg the UK
Fuertesun 11:08 PM @Shaunwilden yes direction is fine. What I mean is that in my case I've never had a kid asking for stuff only parents. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 11:08 PM RT @naomishema: #eltchat - but if we agree to let them have a break what will the chat be about? haha gd point - ok break not an option :-)
harrisonmike 11:08 PM #eltchat following @JezUden's lead like this: http://jezuden.edublogs.org/
bcnpaul1 11:09 PM it doesn't have to be 'study' maybe more of a 'this is why you learnt stuff' type focus #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:09 PM @vickyloras Great idea Vicky! #eltchat
vickyloras 11:09 PM RT @LibraryRemix: RT @ShellTerrell: A post I wrote about using games to get students learning English in the summer http://bit.ly/mdFOdZ #eltchat  #gls7
ShellTerrell 11:09 PM RT @vickyloras: Take them on a tour at a bookshop or local library before the holidays,to browse with them and help them find what they like #ELTChat
Fuertesun 11:09 PM @NoraTouparlaki I don't blame them! #eltchat
vickyloras 11:09 PM Take them on a tour at a bookshop or local library before the holidays,to browse with them and help them find what they like #ELTChat
NoraTouparlaki 11:09 PM @Fuertesun kids will never ask for extras:) #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:09 PM RT @ShellTerrell: I think we can suggest activities for students to keep up their English skills but we should really suggest since it is their break #Eltchat
sandymillin 11:09 PM RT @eyespeakbrasil: LOL end of discussion? #ELTchat< yeah, if we give them a break, we could all go 2 bed early 2night!(at least in Europe!)
KarenInGreece 11:09 PM @Marisa_C I agree - a lot is forgotten over that long break, esp if they don't stay in touch with the language (i.e. books/movies) #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:09 PM For students who want ideas we can list them in a Wiki, blog, or even with a hashtag on Twitter #eltchat Anyone do this?
NoraTouparlaki 11:10 PM @Fuertesun me neither, but we have to pesruade them that learning never stops #eltchat
Shaunwilden 11:10 PM RT @bcnpaul1: it doesn't have to be 'study' maybe more of a 'this is why you learnt stuff' type focus #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:10 PM RT @naomishema: @NoraTouparlaki #eltchat It HAS happened to me that kids ask for somehting. not often but does happen!
ShellTerrell 11:10 PM RT @DelaneyKirk: I've used jeopardy in class to review concepts. Students love it. #eltchat
naomishema 11:10 PM @NoraTouparlaki #eltchat It HAS happened to me that kids ask for somehting. not often but does happen!
chrisemdin 11:10 PM A great summer activity that isn't laborious & builds skills is to have youth listen to and break down lyrics to songs #eltchat
pjgallantry 11:10 PM #eltchat agree with @bcnpaul
sandymillin 11:11 PM @naomishema they could also try quizlet.com - good for games  #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:11 PM RT @ShellTerrell: Social media is a great way to get them conversing like a Facebook page or weekly chat #eltchat
pjgallantry 11:11 PM #eltchat chances are that the ss already use social networking sites eg facebook, but in L1 - whats the advantage to using English for them?
vickyloras 11:11 PM RT @Marisa_C: Children need to play - why not collect a number of games for them in a wiki #ELtchat
naomishema 11:11 PM #eltchat showed headmagnet http://bit.ly/cDwgiH to uptight deaf girl who asked for a way to drill vocab during the summer
NoraTouparlaki 11:11 PM @naomishema it has also happened to me ! that's the easy part of our task #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:11 PM @NoraTouparlaki Okay yes lifelong learning but they're minis #eltchat
ShellTerrell 11:11 PM Social media is a great way to get them conversing like a Facebook page or weekly chat #eltchat

Marisa_C 11:11 PM Children need to play - why not collect a number of games for them in a wiki #ELtchat
Fuertesun 11:11 PM I think the whole concept of summer is, that it's a BREAK #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:12 PM @bcnpaul1 But why is the question? #eltchat
domi75P 11:12 PM RT @ThirdGradeTerri: @ShellTerrell Love the hashtag idea. My students watch my tweetdeck  after recess and love #elemchat #edchat and they are 3rd grdrs.#eltchat
domi75P 11:12 PM RT @ShellTerrell: I think we can suggest activities for students to keep up their English skills but we should really suggest since it is their break #Eltchat
domi75P 11:12 PM RT @ShellTerrell: A post I wrote about using games to get students learning English in the summer http://bit.ly/mdFOdZ #eltchat
Fuertesun 11:12 PM RT @bcnpaul1: we always give out the same tired handout with the usual websites to look at, but they never do - needs to be more 'why' involved #eltchat
NoraTouparlaki 11:12 PM @Fuertesun I know, that's why we should find out sth appropriate , I'd sugggest movies,cartoons  #eltchat
ThirdGradeTerri 11:12 PM @ShellTerrell Love the hashtag idea. My students watch my tweetdeck  after recess and love #elemchat #edchat and they are 3rd grdrs.#eltchat
sandymillin 11:12 PM RT @Marisa_C: Get them to make a movie of their summer with drawings which they caption #eltchat
bcnpaul1 11:12 PM we always give out the same tired handout with the usual websites to look at, but they never do - needs to be more 'why' involved #eltchat
pjgallantry 11:12 PM #eltchat....from their point of view, I mean
Fuertesun 11:13 PM @Marisa_C Do your kids tend to do that? Mine leave and forget again till October. #eltchat
bcnpaul1 11:13 PM most kids love music. why not get 'em to come back with fav english songs of the summer with at least one st.generated worksheet #eltchat
KarenInGreece 11:13 PM @Marisa_C Get them to make a movie of their summer with drawings which they caption #eltchat Nice idea
sandymillin 11:13 PM RT @Shaunwilden: they could use portable devices to record what they do on their summer holiday #eltchat
naomishema 11:13 PM RT @pjgallantry: #eltchat perhaps it might be good to break down what activities could be given according to age group of student....
ShellTerrell 11:13 PM RT @Marisa_C: Children need to play - why not collect a number of games for them in a wiki #ELtchat
Shaunwilden 11:13 PM #eltchat Isnt setting them 21st cent equivalent of 'what i did for my summer' sth that'd appeal i.e. use phone… (cont) http://deck.ly/~HZAWT
Marisa_C 11:13 PM @Fuertesun They can do the drawings or take pictures during their hold - keep a scrapbook #ELTchat
ShellTerrell 11:13 PM RT @Marisa_C: Get them to make a movie of their summer with drawings which they caption #eltchat
naomishema 11:13 PM #eltchat since Facebook is in L1 AND GOOGLE TRANSLATOR is available (problematic translations don't bug my kids) they surf without ENGLISH
pjgallantry 11:13 PM #eltchat perhaps it might be good to break down what activities could be given according to age group of student....
Beatriz1Pereira 11:13 PM RT @ShellTerrell: RT @DelaneyKirk: I've used jeopardy in class to review concepts. Students love it. #eltchat
vickyloras 11:13 PM @NoraTouparlaki Super idea Nora! #ELTChat

sandymillin 11:14 PM how likely are you to end up with the same students after the summer holiday? #eltchat in my case, chances almost nil (if at same school!)
jhwordsmith 11:14 PM RT @Marisa_C: Children need to play - why not collect a number of games for them in a wiki #ELtchat
eyespeakbrasil 11:14 PM They could use voice recognition software to practise their listening, speaking, pronunciation, stress and fluency skills #ELTchat
Beatriz1Pereira 11:14 PM RT @ShellTerrell: For students who want ideas we can list them in a Wiki, blog, or even with a hashtag on Twitter #eltchat Anyone do this?
bcnpaul1 11:14 PM RT @KarenInGreece: @Marisa_C Get them to make a movie of their summer with drawings which they caption #eltchat Nice idea >very nice

domi75P 11:14 PM RT @ShellTerrell: RT @Marisa_C: Get them to make a movie of their summer with drawings which they caption #eltchat
NoraTouparlaki 11:14 PM @vickyloras simple everyday things, like music , so they won't take it as sth compulsory #ELTChat
ShellTerrell 11:14 PM RT @ThirdGradeTerri: @ShellTerrell Love the hashtag idea. My students watch my tweetdeck  after recess and love #elemchat #edchat and they are 3rd grdrs.#eltchat
naomishema 11:15 PM #eltchat - they could make a slide show with summer holiday snapshots and write titles (or narrate, for the hearing kids!) lots of sites!
eyespeakbrasil 11:15 PM So, that's differnet for each student #ELTchat
KarenInGreece 11:15 PM @bcnpaul1 most kids love music. why not get 'em to come back with fav english songs of the summer with at least one... #eltchat Great idea!
Fuertesun 11:15 PM @bcnpaul1 Motivation needs a nreak too! #eltchat
Marisa_C 11:15 PM Anyone thinking of a summer library? #ELTchat - Books, books, books
eyespeakbrasil 11:15 PM Intrinsic motivation comes from content right? #ELTchat
bcnpaul1 11:15 PM RT @sandymillin: how likely are you to end up with the same students after summer holiday? #eltchat in my case, chances almost nil >ditto
ShellTerrell 11:15 PM RT @NoraTouparlaki: @vickyloras simple everyday things, like music , so they won't take it as sth compulsory #ELTChat
bcnpaul1 11:15 PM @Fuertesun why is the question - trying to generate intrinsic motivation is the answer IMO #eltchat
eyespeakbrasil 11:16 PM @NoraTouparlaki yes, if they are gregarious. #ELTchat
bcnpaul1 11:16 PM RT @Fuertesun: @bcnpaul1 Motivation needs a break too! #eltchat it does but we're not asking for hours a day - just something small

pjgallantry 11:16 PM #eltchat an online noticeboard such as this- http://t.co/MsDaTWA might be a way to keep them engaged -posting as much/as little as they like
