Is it sunny?
Is it raining?
Is it cloudy?
Is it hot or cold?
We read a lovely story about Maisy Mouse and the weather!
We are playing games about the weather- stormy, windy, cloudy, raining, snowing, etc.
and today.... IT IS SNOWING!!! We put on our JACKETS and GLOVES and BOOTS- and made a SNOWMAN!!!
or maybe it's a SNOW MONSTER!!!!
I SEE with my eyes
I HEAR with my ears
I SMELL with my nose
I TASTE with my tongue
I TOUCH with my fingers and hands
We did a taste test of different flavours: Sweet like sugar, sour like lemons, bitter like goji berries, salty like salt!
" I like it!" or "I DON"T like it!"
Then we made cameras!
We took our cameras to the Plaza Clara to SEE what we could SEE!!
" I see my friend"
"I see a bird"
"I see trees" and many, many more things!
We made a page in out books about the things we see in the plaza.
We learned to play a game called ninja! It is a card game with colourful illustrations about BEING a ninja. BE BALANCED, KIND, HONEST, GENEROUS, CREATIVE, HELPFUL, TOLERANT etc.
We continue to play different games with the cards, learning the vocabulary and making examples with the verb "to be". For example: I am helpful when I take out the rubbish!
We play memory and guessing games with the cards too.
At the moment are working on our individual books about:
WHO AM I?
MY FAVOURITE THINGS
This is an ongoing project, which will take more time to complete, as there are diverse activities and concepts involved.
We created the cover page and tied the inside pages together.
We practiced speaking about ourselves and a small description of who we are.
We took a photo to put in our book.
Now we are working on our skills pages and drawings:
"I am good at acting"
"I am good at playing football" "I am good at time-keeping"
"I am good at cooking mushroom omelettes!"

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.
