How do you use your Instagram? Do you just upload pictures of yourself, family & friends and write some captions below?
Now, let’s do it differently. Instagram can also be used in the classroom. It can make your lesson much more interactive since pupils are more tech-savvy and have their own handphones. Instagram provides an interesting platform to make sure the pupils attracted to your lessons. Why not try it & see what your pupils say about this?
You can’t be in school because of meetings or courses? Fear not. Here come Screencast-O-Matic. It’s an innovative way to make your presence in the classroom despite your absentees in school.

Blendspace is an interesting webtool where we can have various slides and images to present our lessons. We can showcase the exercises online or on projector. This will help us from the loooonnnggg talk we have to do.

Twitter is not just a tool to chat and express your feelings. Twitter can be used in classrooms as well. Teachers should be creative & innovative in varying their teaching and learning methods. Thus, Twitter provides an alternative platform for us to attract pupils’ attention towards our lessons.
See below for what I did using Twitter for my Year 3 pupils on the topic ‘From The Sea’.
A preposition is a word used to link nouns, pronouns, or phrases to other words within a sentence. Prepositions are usually short words, and they are normally placed directly in front of nouns. In some cases, you’ll find prepositions in front of gerund verbs.
Types of Prepositions
There are three types of prepositions, including time prepositions, place prepositions, and direction prepositions. Time prepositions are those such as before, after, during, and until; place prepositions are those indicating position, such as around, between, and against; and direction prepositions are those indicative of direction, such as across, up, and down. Each type of preposition is important.
Examples of Prepositions
In the following sentences, examples of prepositions have been italicized. As you read, consider how using different prepositions or even different types of prepositions in place of the examples might change the relationship between the rest of the words in the sentence.
