How to improve English at home.

Hi there, Christmas time is coming and children will be many days without practising English. Because of that, I decided to give special homework for them: to watch videos, movies, series and cartoons in English. Nowadays, it's easy to switch the dual system on tv, but also I wanted to recommend some proposals for primary students.
1) Here you have the first one. Sesame Street. 

2) Phineas and Ferb Episodes

3) Dance academy. Series

4) Girl Meets World - New Family Comedy Series 

5) Boy Meets World

6) Wild Kratts

7) Friends

8) Monty paiton

Use videos to improve your fluency. Choose a short part of a show and repeat it line by line. Try to match the tone, speed and even the accent (if you can). It doesn’t matter if you miss a few words, the important thing is to keep talking. Try to sound just like the native speakers on the show.

Also, FluentU is a great way to practice listening and repeating. 
TV 411 (videos with native speakers. Following each video is a comprehension quiz)
BBC Learn English (resources for young primary learners)
GCF Learn Free a well-designed site with interactive tutorials.
Language Guide (vocabulary and grammar)

After going to the cinema and watch Wonder I couldn't stop thinking of an activity for my students. Last year I introduced them into the song below. It is "We are going to be friends" by White Stripes from their album White Blood Cells but kids didn't seem to be engaged. This year has been different due to the Wonder release. If you don't know anything about it, I will say that one of the theme songs is the one below. It tells the story of meeting a new friend at the beginning of a school year. Although we are at the end of the first term, the song is always welcomed.
I love it. Sure that my students are going to have it in their minds.

I can / I can't

Hi there,
this video shows an interesting way to work habilities. 
Some superhumans are shown on how they overcome barriers.
As teachers, we can make that whenever our students think that they cannot do what they want, they must believe in themselves and they must try to do.
I'm sure that they will forget their sorrows.

Wonder, the movie.

Hi there! Yesterday I went to Verdi Cinema in Barcelona and I enjoyed a lot watching Wonder.
The book made a difference on me and I prayed for watching the movie as soon as it arrives at Barcelona. Every teacher must read and work the book in the classroom. All the characters are important in Auggie's life but also it's amazing to understand the reasons for acting how they do. Here you have a trailer of the movie. Worth watching!

Alice Advent Calendar

Hi everyone! December is here and, as most of you know, I love traditions and Alice in Wonderland. For that reason, I decided to mix Alice with Christmas and here you have the result: Alice Advent Calendar. Hope you like it! By the way, do not open all the windows. Just one by one.
