  1. Hi Eva!

    Awesome list of links – some of my groups start next week! I will use some of them. Thanks for reminding me of the Carnival as well – the marvel of blogs and social media, so many – but we sometimes forget!

    Have a great new school year,

  2. Hi Eva,

    Great list of resources. I can’t believe summer will be over in some days and I’m sure my students will feel the same way. At least, with some fun activities like these ones we can keep the summer spirit alive. Sure my students will love to speak, write and create projects about their summer holiday.

    Thanks for sharing,


  3. Wow! That’s quite a list! Thank you so much for sharing. I was just browsing the web for new tips and ideas 🙂
