6th Grade/ Mad Libs ...St.Patrick's Day

Mad Libs is a fun way for students to practice the elements of grammar to create silly and ridiculous stories with a partner.
 We practiced using a wide range of adverbs, adjectives, nouns, and many different verb tenses to create some funny narratives.

P5 Let's go to the park

Hello everybody.

Last week we started with the topic : The park.
We visited the park and designed our own park with different materials.
Vocabulary: Swing , seesaw, slide, tree , drink water,  throw the dice , find the treasure. Climbe up, go down.



3rd Grade Being scientists.

7Hello everybody.

 Last week we started the  topic experiments. The first experiment we did is to let unfold a  paper flower in the water.  The second experiment was the floating candle  . The third experiment was making slime.

We asked ourselfes different questions.

For example ; What opens the paper flower ?  When we did the experiment outside a student answered ;  ¨The wind .¨But inside the flower openend as well .  Magic ???
What happens if we put a bigger flower? does it open faster or slower ?

The floating candle experiment  was very interesting as well.

1 put some coloured water in a plate
2 strike a match and lighten the candle
3 put the candle in the plate
3 Put carefully a jar over the candle.

The result: the water is rising and the candle is floating .   Why ????
The candle stops burning because of a lack of oxygen. And because it uses the oxygen it causes a vacuum effect that makes the water rise and the candle float.
We had loads of fun !!

Hello people,

"School supplies" is the topic on which we worked before Carnival. The idea was to discover the classroom, where we spend most of the time every day, and its main objects. The idea was our children learn more new vocabulary and was able to use it at class at every moment easily.

The first activity was making a school bag which had all basic stuff like  a pencil case, some crayons, some colour pencils, a pair of scissors, a rubber and a sharpener. The second activity was a matching-up game to remember such new words of vocabulary.

Here below a few photos of one of the activities that have been done
