5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful 14 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is full of great ideas. I particularly liked the ideas around new approaches in the classroom (props, changing the structure of the classroom) which offer some really interesting alternatives to my standard lessons.

I love this book! It is full of ideas for bringing lessons back to life, while still ensuring that progress is made. It is too easy to get stuck in a rut of the same style of teaching and it is so good to read about new ideas. I've never heard of most of these activities! I'm going to try a new activity a week starting tomorrow!
