Good ideas to share

Hi everyone! I just want to share two activities I put in practice. 
You know that children love moving because they involve action. 
So, what about to learn new chants and vocabulary singing while moving?
Here you have a sample:


Another way to make children having fun in the classroom is by giving them some  vocabulary we have just introduced and using a famous tone for them.
As an example, try to repeat the days of the week or the months of the year as the example below:

January, February,
March, April,
May, June,
July, August,
September, October,
November, December,
Then you turn around.

Tintin celebrates his 90 birthday today!

The young reporter appeared for the first time in 1929 together with his lovely and amazing dog Snowy. 
From this post, I want to celebrate his birthday bringing to my mind an awesome activity that my husband made at his studio and also a drawing  he made in one of his studio's wall . All the pictures were taken while he was working there and at the end of the process I could be in his project.
Tintin will be always in my family's hearts. Thanks Hergé (Georges Prosper Remi)!

Second term is here!

Hi everyone!
It's time to come back to school and start the second term. Feel happy because we are going to introduce a cool song, the one that you have below! Click on that image and go to lyrics training web. Remember, if you want to listen to the missing word, you have to use the backspace botton. If you have problems, you can always use the tab botton for having the solution.

Holy Innocents' Day!


We celebrate the Holy Innocents' Day today. Some people use to play all kind of jokes and foolishness. However, the most famous tradition in our country says that you have to hang a "llufa" on the friends' and people's back. But, do you know how to make one? It's very easy, you need a newspaper and scissors.

First, take out a page from the newspaper and fold it as an acordion. Look at the pictures:







When you have the acordion made ready, it is time to cut the "llufes"When you open the "acordion" you will have a "llufes" chain. Now you can use it as you want: you can decorate your bedroom or you can cut the chain and you will obtain lots of "llufes".

Chocolate covered anything day!

If you are a chocolate lover, today is your day (my day ;D) !  If you could cover anything in chocolate, what would it be? There are so many foods that are improved by covering them in chocolate, I do not have time to list them all but here you have two delicatessen I tried at home: orange peels and cashews.  So go ahead, and try new chocolate covered dreams. By the way, here you have other important days in December to celebrate or to share in your lessons. 



Besides that, if you want to link the day with Roald Dalh famous book, here you have a digital short presentation about the characters. 

Furthermore, here you have an easy presentation about chocolate

An easy Christmas song for young students

Hi there,
the post today is about a Christmas song for young children. It's "I'm a Little Snowman!". It's an easy song to learn to describe a snowman and to teach the vocabulary the song shows related to the famous character. Also, it helps to teach parts of the body vocabulary to young learners. It uses simple words (eyes, hat, scarf, buttons and nose) and is done at a pace young children can follow and sing along, too!

Who am I on line?

Hi there, the post today is related to a NOOC INTEF training course  that I am doing nowadays. It's related to the net and how can we teach children about security in it. Here you have a mini project for year 6.

Think before you post!


Finally, just to say that I am also at the end of @decodeproject (DIGITAL COMPETENCE) seminar. In this point, one of the activities that is required is to make an input in the net reflecting my thoughts. So here you have mine:
My teaching practice takes an account, among other aspects, the use of new technologies but becoming aware of what digital teaching competency is about with this teaching digital competence seminar, it has opened up new approaches to the present and the future. I am lucky to work in a school that works for projects, involving living and cooperative methodologies, where children take part in their learning process. I would add, as very important, that education professionals have to ensure that technology has not to be decontextualized, I mean, the sense of its presence has to be understood.
