As those of us in the know, know, so to speak, there is really no better community of educators than the Modern Language teachers, known collectively as the #mfltwitterati amongst others. The sharing of ideas and resources is unbelievable and inspiring.
Today I asked for help applying the theories of Gianfranco Conti re the correct order of activities and almost immediately I had access to resources from @SrSpall, @BotonesSalgado, @Aurelie_LTH and @MrsWardMFL
I took our existing PPTs, then took inspiration from Aurelie's templates for more Spanish activities on the topic of clothes and combined them into one mega-PowerPoint. You can download it from Slideshare here
I want to add that my brilliant colleague Julie in the Spanish dept isn't on Twitter but constantly makes resources for our dept, some slides of which are in here.

Within a day of starting to use Deck.Toys I had already decided that the potential was so great that it was worth investing in the Pro account. So far I have made KS3 sets on shopping, house and clothes, a GCSE set for daily routine and an A level set for subjunctive phrases.
We have all the vocab for KS3 and GCSE on our Quizlet so I was easily able to export the vocab sets to Deck Toys to use as the study set within each deck. I also exported them to Blooket, Gimkit and Flippity as well as quickly creating activities on Wordwall and and Learning Apps. I was then able to embed those activities into my Deck as well as using the plethora of activities available within the deck.
It's easy to assign a deck to a classroom or share with other teachers. I'm also sharing the decks I make via a Wakelet collection

I have heard a lot about Deck Toys recently so decided to check it out, using @botonessalgado's very useful video on how to create a new deck I have all the vocab for the units we teach in Quizlet which means that it is very easy to import it into Deck Toys and set up a new deck. Here's a very basic one I have made for KS3 Spanish on shops and quantities. Now that I've got the basic concept, I'm off to make some with my sentence builders
