What are “live” worksheets?
Liveworksheets.com enables teachers to transform their traditional printable worksheets (doc, pdf, jpg, etc.) into online exercises with self-correction, which is why it is called live worksheets or “interactive worksheets.”
On their website, Liveworksheets.com furthermore incorporates new technologies such as sound bites, videos, memes, drag-and-drop features, multiple answer options, and even speaking exercises. Adapting to these live worksheets is easy for students, who are all familiar with using headphones or the recording functions of their phones, tablets or laptops. This makes interactive worksheets ideal for ESL and other language teachers.
Where to find live worksheets?
To find live worksheets to use, teachers simply go to the section marked interactive worksheets on the website of Liveworksheets.com and then select the subjects they are teaching. For example, I teach English as a second language, so, I can search for live worksheets providing grammar exercises in the past tense. The website has a tutorial and a video tutorial on how to make and use worksheets.
How to use live worksheets
The Liveworksheets.com website provides options that are great for class, using either a projector or the hybrid method of interacting with students via e-mail/ WhatsApp and other media, having shared the relevant worksheet with students for homework. The same applies if you’re teaching online. Simply copy and send worksheets to your students. They in turn must complete and mail it back for you to check on their homework. There are many types of worksheets; drag and drop the best ones for your lessons. It is also easy to create personalized interactive worksheets.
Step by step instruction
To get started, just log in on Liveworksheets.com. Then go to Upload. There are many worksheets, so first select a suitable one for your lesson. Next, proceed to type in questions and answers in the worksheet you have selected. It is very easy to use, just drag a square and then you type in the correct answer. Then save the document. There is also a preview function.
If you are uncertain about what to do, go to the Question Mark and it will explain everything. You can create a ‘Select Box Choose,’ so your students can pick between two answers. Otherwise, set up a Multiple Choice option where students have to select either yes or no. The questions and answers can also be joined with arrows. Students can drag and drop and connect the correct answers.
Using audio with live worksheets
Live worksheets can include listening exercises by loading up some audio. Explore the audio file on the website by using Word Search.
There is also a video explaining how to do that, and also on how to add Mp3 files, YouTube videos, or PowerPoint links to create interactive worksheets for students. These live worksheets can then be added to workbooks. Each student can be assigned a workbook that is then electronically sent to them.
You will have to register your students first, though. Otherwise, just go to the interactive worksheets and add the file to the workbook that you’ve already created.
