You didn't know there was worksheet printing on textivate...?

"Print" buttons are available on many textivate screens. These buttons will only work if you are a textivate subscriber and you are logged in to textivate.

Worksheet printing is available for text activities and for matching activities.

1) Worksheets / print-outs based on a text:

The video below gives you a quick idea of the kinds of worksheets you can print based on any text in textivate.

The browser used in the video is Google Chrome, which is particularly good because it has an automatic print preview as well as a "save as pdf" option - which is how the pdfs further down the post were created.

Dead easy to do.

You don't need to upload a text to print out a worksheet. You can type or paste something in "on the fly" or use one of the many public resources on textivate.

(But as I said, you DO need to be a subscriber if you want to print worksheets).

We generally recommend Google Chrome for worksheet printing, as it provides an automatic print preview and offers the facility to save your worksheet as a pdf. Firefox works well too. Safari works OK too, but the quality of the printing can vary, and sometimes it adds an extra page.

*Update: As of 28 November 2014 we've added a new Print facility for Internet Explorer users, which should allow access to a print preview and the possibility of modifying the zoom, margins etc. See this blog post for more details.

Here are links to some worksheets like the ones in the video (pdfs):

1. Tile 2x4 - put the 8 chunks of text in order.

2. Tile 3x4 - put the 12 chunks of text in order.

3. Tile 4x5 - put the 20 chunks of text in order.

4. 10 strips - put the 10 strips of text in order.

5. Random gap-fill (with word list).

6. Random gap-fill (without word list).

7. User-defined gap-fill - this one has past participles as gaps.

8. Space insert - separate the words and add punctuation.

9. No vowels.

10. 50:50 - half of all the letters have been removed.

11. 50:50 (1 in 3) - as above, but only affects 1 in 3 words.

12. Initials - just the first letter of each word is shown.

13. Initials (1 in 2) - as above, but only 1 in 2 words is affected.

14. No letters - just word shapes. Good as basis for dictation.

15. No letters (1 in 3) - as above, but only affects 1 in 3 words.

16. Anagrams - every word is changed into an anagram.

17. Anagrams (1 in 3) - every third word is changed into an anagram.

2) Worksheets / print-outs based on matching items:

The video below gives you a quick idea of the kinds of worksheets you can print based on matching items in textivate.

The browser used in the video is Google Chrome, which is particularly good because it has an automatic print preview as well as a "save as pdf" option - which is how the pdfs further down the post were created.

Note that there are lots of options for printing from the various match screens. You can specify the format, the number of cards / pairs / dominoes per page, the total number of items to print, etc.

Dead easy to do.

You don't need to upload anything to print out a worksheet. You can type or paste something in "on the fly" or use one of the many public resources on textivate.

(But I'll emphasise again, you DO need to be a subscriber if you want to print worksheets).

We generally recommend Google Chrome for worksheet printing, as it provides an automatic print preview and offers the facility to save your worksheet as a pdf. Firefox works well too. Safari works OK too, but the quality of the printing can vary, and sometimes it adds an extra page.

*Update: As of 28 November 2014 we've added a new Print facility for Internet Explorer users, which should allow access to a print preview and the possibility of modifying the zoom, margins etc. See this blog post for more details.

Here are links to some worksheets like the ones in the video (pdfs):

1. Vocab list - side by side - can be used to learn the items.

2. Vocab cards - cut out rows and then fold pairs to make flip cards.

3. Matching exercise - this one is based on the 8 matching items that appeared on the screen only.

4. Matching exercise, based on all 20 matching items (over 2 pages - there is a limit of 16 items per page).

5. Pairs / memory / snap cards - just 9 pairs here, based on the 9 pairs that were on the screen.

6. Pairs / memory / snap cards - all 20 pairs (20 cards per page). Cut out and play in pairs or groups.

7. Dominoes - cut out and play in pairs or groups. Dominoes are not printed next to each other so students can't play using the scissor cut as a guide :)

9. No consonants - all consonants have been removed from the target word / phrase.

10. 50:50 - half of all the letters have been removed from the tagret words / phrases.
