Hi everyone!
4th graders have been working hard about Christmas. The last activity consisted of making a Christmas fortune teller or snapdragon. Some of them didn't have enough time to make it in the English lesson, so here you have the instructions about how to make a fortune teller.

The steps are as it follows:
  1. Fold the paper into fourths
  2. Unfold the paper
  3. Fold over the four corners, into the middle.
  4. Fold into fourths again
  5. Flip over the paper
  6. Fold over the corners on the new side of the paper
  7. Fold into fourths one last time
  8. Fit your fingers into the slits and open.

In every life we have some trouble, when you worry you make it double!


It's fine to be
happy or sad.
It's fine to be
brave or scared.
It's fine to have
short or long hair.
It's fine to play
or just watch.

It's fine to be alone
or want company.
It's fine to be thin
or fat.
It's fine to wear jeans
or a skirt.

It's fine to dance
or sit down.
It's just fine
to be
what you
want to be!

Classroom names for 2nd grade

This school year brings black holes and horses to 2nd grade

2ndA group are black holes, but what are they?
Have you ever had to vacuum your bedroom? When you do, watch closely because you will see the dirt and crumbs start to move towards the vacuum cleaner.  A black hole is similar to a vacuum cleaner, cleaning up debris left behind in outer space.
However, it is not suction power that makes things fall into a black hole.  Suction would not be strong enough.  Instead, a black hole uses the power of gravity to pull things towards it.

                             2ndB group is working on horses. 
We are learning the actions that horses do and also new vocabulary about them.
Besides that, we have discovered fun facts about them:
. They can sleep both lying down and standing up.
. Their lifespan is around 25 years.
. They have around 205 bones in their skeleton.

Here you have this funny song from "kids songs" by Patty Shukla

Basic vocabulary for 3rd graders

Hi everyone!
3rd graders are learning the English alphabet. Among different activities I want to show you some poems they wrote playing with their names.

Children and me have been talking about them. Children were astonished about what a star is (if you want more information, look at 1st group page on your left of the screen)

Why do some leaves change their color in Autumn?

Every Autumn in all the forests of the world, there is a miraculous change in the color of the leaves. They turn from green into brilliant shades of yellow, orange, red, and gold. Sometimes you can see several shades on the same leaf. But why are these color changes happening, and what is going on in the plant?
Read this explanation and you will understand!
Plants make their own food. They take water from the ground through their roots. They take a gas called carbon dioxide from the air. They turn water and carbon dioxide into food using sunlight and something called chlorophyll. This one is green. It gives leaves their green color.

Winter days are short and dry. Many plants stop making food in Autumn. Then, the chlorophyll goes away. Then we can see different colours as orange, yellow, red, gold and also brown. When they are brown, it comes from wastes left in the leaves.
Watch the video!

Let's have fun with the English Alphabet
