P4 Thanksgiving project

At the end of November your children have come home with a colorful turkey this was because we have have celebrated Thanksgiving together, this is one of the most popular and important holidays in the United States and Canada and is always celebrated on the last Thursday of November.
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1rXuAj-FuXW-FdbmS-aYJxR9phQ0VZ0aH
  It is a day that families gather around the table (and the turkey) to give thanks for all the good things we have in our lives, but in our case we wanted our turkey, (symbol of thanks given) to be alive, happy, and full of colors and gratitude.  
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1w95lk1474eE82tHdi4GvkFrFHRAlNrXk
We have been talking about how grateful we are for our home, our family, our toys, and how lucky we are to be able to play with them.
We have drawn our house, we have colored, we have used the glue.  We have also worked on shapes and colors.
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1zjZpgvurCISikofJGZSbJGBDOYrDHhhu

In any case, it is worth remembering that it is not necessary to have a special day dedicated to it.  Every day we can thank all the good we have.
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1sWFCUHt_WPlnW6PpVSgyC6hS8noxAjcB
I hope you have enjoyed it. 
Have a great day full of gratitude!
With love,

1B group - News from november

 Hello families!

How are you?

Here I am  updating the highlights from november. 




At first we  went out to get some fresh air and exercise vital  street vocabulary:

 Pay attention!

It's green, go ahead!

It's red, wait!

We go together! Please don't run!

We go to the playground!

Once we were there we played a version of parchis, the traditional game challenged by english questions.



   "Our story time" I am hurt  was about body parts  and we learned new expressions like:

I am hurt !

My finger hurts, my leg hurts...

Touch your hand, touch your arm..

Where is your foot? Where is your nose?

We danced and had fun together listening to the  body rap!


Our "grammar topic" was about prepositions of place.  We constructed a preposition dice and together we helped the rabbit be in, on, next to, behind, in front  and above the box.







We celebrated Thanksgiving  and we finish the month so grateful for the family, friends, food, health and all the love that is surround us.

4A. A November full of words and stories to tell!

 Hi, dear families:


I just want to inform you as briefly -as I am able to- about how classes are going on. The sessions, as I might have already told you before, have two main parts. The first one is focused on speaking skills throught fun activities of a varied nature. The second part is more specifically focused on a topic or area of interest meaningful to the children. 

Thus in such first part we have been focused on two basic English skills: the alphabet and numbers. Since the beginning of the course we have pushed ourselves in being able to spell letters and in using numbers naturally. 


We have also worked on two topics this month: parts of the body and school supplies. 


I just told you we split the class in two parts, although actually they are partially connected when talking of vocabulary, because we tend to repeat the words again and again for several sessions.


I hope I have given you useful inforation about the classes and the children. I can only add that I am really proud of them for how much they try to be focused on the class, participating in a friendly and positive way.


We'll keep you informing soon!


Take care!


Bye!

1A. School supplies. A project in November

 Hi, dear families:


After Halloween's special week a few weeks ago, we have started a new topic, named School supplies. It's a series of sessions closely connected with the material and the classoom, which both are the most common places where we do class. 

In terms of vocabulary, we have learned a lot of new, and essential words, such as: book, notebook, pencil, pen, scissors, sharpener, rubber, glue... In doing so we have add the basic determiners like a, some, a pair of

In terms of grammar, we have seen the expression I can. in combination with the vocabulary already mentioned.

Finally, we have used a certain video to introduce the sessions. We think it's good for you to know the link, in case you want to watch it again at home. 


Here it is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HOeWyAkhRc

P.D: This week we have started a new topic about days of the week. We'll keep informing you soon


Take care


Bye!
