  1. What a great time to be a teacher and awe students whilst learning a new language! Great video and fun activity!

  2. Thank you for the video! It’s a great tutorial and is REALLY easy to follow. I knew it couldn’t be too tricky if someone just showed me what to click.

  3. Hello, Can you tell me how to do the fill in the blank lesson where when a student moves the word, it has a check or an x? I saw this somewhere but do not know how to do it!

    • Hi Terry, check the Lesson Activity Toolkit tools in the SMART Notebook software. The keyword match or category sort would do the trick you are looking for.

      1) Open your SMART Notebook software
      2) Click on the gallery
      3) Expand “Lesson Activity Toolkit”
      4) Expand “Activities”
      5) Click on “category sort” or “keyword match” in there.
      6) In the lower window you’ll see “interactive and multimedia”, click on it
      7) Drag one of the items that appear into your main SMART Notebook window
      8) Click on EDIT to modify the parameters
      9) Have fun!

      Let me know if that works for you.
