Flippity quiz show on GCSE Spanish Daily Routine and A level ser and estar

Today I used the flippity.net quiz show template to create translation sentences into both Spanish and English on the topic of Daily Routine. We played Blooket as a warmup and then went to the quiz show. This group is very bright but fairly quiet so I had to work quite hard to get them to collaborate and venture answers but we got there in the end. 
Here is the link to the GCSE Sp daily routine game and this one is for Ser and Estar for A level.

If you can't pay it back, pay it forward

 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.
