If you have internet access in your classroom then why not have some fun in your next lesson with I came across it when looking at one of our favourite blogs, the Learning technology teacher development blog, which is run by Nick Peachey. Thanks Nick!

On you can have a great time playing with characters such as the little fellow below.

Just type into the box below the image to control what the different (funny looking) characters say. You can choose from many different characters. Below are just a few. is a great way of getting students to practise writing dialogues and expressing themselves. If they’re feeling really keen you could get them practising their journalism skills in English by creating your own newspaper. Just click the Newspaper link at the top of the Fodey homepage. Here’s one we made earlier.

If you don’t have internet at school, why not get your students to write a newspaper article on for homework? They can save it from the site, print it out and bring it in next lesson to share it with the rest of the class. Great fun!
