Hello everybody !
Of course we had to do something with Valentine's day. Glitters and girls go very well together !! So they made some beautiful hearts full with glitter. And just to let you know that we painted faces as well . Here you are; some pictures !!!
With 5thgraders we are doing a lot of games and activities to invite them to speak.
For example we look at a short video and they have to tell what they saw.
We did as well many experiments.They have to explain the steps to take to do the experiment.
The folowing pictures are made while doing experiments.
As well we did theatre . For example we build a prison with chairs where we played to be the policeman and the thief. and we made a hospital with chairs and played roles like the patient and the nurse. We used sentences like . Does it hurt ? Yes it hurts. I broke my leg. I broke my arm.
Ai ai it's terrible. You have to wait . No problem.I listen to your heart beat.

As we started new semester and that we just met us, we decided to do something different: A free topic session with clay. Each of the students could make whatever figure they occured.
Neither rules nor commands for just a day! Just imagination!
They had fun moulding clay with their own hands, for sure!
The figures were amazing and surprising!
Here below some pictures of this special session!
Bye for now!
This week, we focused on jobs and their roles by doing different activities and dynamics at class. First, we approach to this new topic by learning such jobs and roles. Then, we played to a true or false game to understand each job and what its role can be and what it cannot be. Finally, we introduced the modal verb "can" to make sentences related to it by doing different activities and dynamics around the class again.
Apart from that, we also spent some time to 14th February, lovers' celebration by making a craft that students decorated on their way. You can find a couple of pictures of it on a new post, entitled "14th February, Saint Valentine's Day".
Here below you can see some pictures that are a sample of what we talk about.
Barika & Jordi
We also did crafts, this gives them the opportunity to practice the conversation and free their artistic side.

First graders are learning about the correct proportions of the face; the eyes, nose, mouth etc. The 2nd part of the project consists of lines; thin, thick, dotted, zig -zag , dark, and light as these variations of lines are being used to create hair as their character has been scared!
We celebrated carnival by playing, dressing up, singing aand dancing.
We used the following song. The students liked the song so we share it !

Scissors, glue, sharpener, eraser, pencil, pen, markers, crayon, paint, paintbrush, ruler,
We played a game called "What's missing?" and tried to remember all the objects on the table.
We played "What's in the bag?" we put an object in a cloth bag, and then only using our sense of touch (no looking!!) Then one student can feel what's in the bag- "Is it metal or plastic? Is it wood or rubber?"
Then we learned "What is it used for?"
We use a paintbrush to paint.
We use scissors to cut.
We use a ruler to draw a line.
We made these beautiful designs, by tracing the objects and colouring them in with markers.

The clock says Tick Tock,
The clock says Tick Tock,
It's time to say hello!!!
We read about the colour monster and learnt about the colours and our emotions.
We played musical statues! We dance and then, when the music stops, we "freeze" - on our face we show an emotion!
Are you happy? Are you sad? Are you scared? Are you calm? Are you angry?
Are you in love?
Yes, I am! No, I'm not!
For carnival we made these colourful necklaces! We cut out shapes, from colour cardboard and glued them to a red string. Happy Carnival!!!
