ALPHABET VIDEOS FOR PRACTICING SPELLING




Spelling games for kids to learn the alphabet 






For very young learners
Count from 1 to 10







Let´s practice numbers from 1 to 20
You can sing them, repeating and write them after.






Let´s learn COLOURS through the Rainbow Colours song.







Mixing colours is fun, try it!!







If you’ve learned how to mix up colours, now you can put it into practice.

Steps for colouring shells:

1. When you go to the beach, pick up some shells. 
2. At home, wash them and let them dry.
3. You need water colours, a piece of kitchen paper and a glass of clean water
4. Any day, if you feel  bored but ready for Art, get all your shells and the rest of material and enjoy the magic of  painting...
You can prepare a collection of painted shells for home, for your friends or family as a present or just for having fun.
Enjoyyyyyy!!!

Saying Goodbye to Maureen


                                                                          Maureen is talking about interesting places and people 
                                                                                       from her country.





She’s our 7th conversation assistant in Tirán. 
We are very happy to have the chance of sharing our school activities and everyday situations at school with so nice foreign people who give us a little of their culture, language, lives and a piece of their heart.
We also give them ours.






3rd graders students are reading short texts from the map and listening to Maureen’s explanations.






Also 6th graders were talking to her and participating in the readings and explanations about USA traditions, important places and famous people, sports, food, etc.






5th graders listening carefully and participating in the readings and videos.






                       ............———-............

                       Finally, we gave Maureen a small celebration in the school main hall...









Xiana & Mateo gave Maureen two meaningful presents for the school. A small “Curuxa”(owl) and a lovely handmade book made with all the pictures that the school students drew for Maureen.


The small Owl.














The handmade pictures book.












                         


 Thank you, Maureen!!!♥️

          MAUREEN, ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS.

“It' s been an amazing year next to you, working, smiling, imaging, doing awesome activities and games with our students and enjoying every moment, every class shared with you.

Kindergarten 3 & 4



This is the beginning of our class in 
kindergarten 3 & 4.
“Line up, line up, line Up!. 1, 2, 3 stamp your feet!”.








Working on the topic The Very Hungry Caterpillar about food. The kids acted out the story with cards standing up and going  next to the appropiate day of the week,  according to the story read by Maureen.
After, they can colour and cut out the pieces of the story to recreate it again on a different paper.



Kindergarten 3 students are having fun with Maureen.



We were working on The very Hungry Caterpillar book. 
We’re learning vocabulary through a Memory Game.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar




We are going to enjoy a lot with our new project based on the classical 
THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR.

We´ll start with the reading of the book.






After working with the book and some crafts, we´ll learn about the Butterfly Life Cycle .
We have a special song for the kids.



Related to the topic about the caterpillar changing into butterfly, we made a very interesting project. 
We explained Symmetry and the kids were colouring a butterfly following some specific directions.

First: we have folded the butterfly paper exactly by the middle.
Then: the kids have coloured by means of their fingers and paint only half of the butterfly.
Finally, we have folded it  back to see how the paint coloured exactly the other part of the butterfly.







Wonderful & surprising project for the kindergarden 5 students.





To complete the topic about Food  based on “The very Hungry Caterpillar” , the kids freely are doing their own composition in a colour paper.

Coloured salt box

You can use a Coloured Salt Box to practice vocabulary, spelling, as a guessing game, etc into groups, pairs or individually.




These are 3rd graders writing vocabulary related to food into small groups. That was surprising and funny for them.



They were practicing orally short food dialogues and after that,  they rewiewed spelling through this original way.

Hooray for fish



The Art workshop in kindergarden 5  is linked to the English class, so during the What’s your favorite pet? topic, we wanted to create a funny fish by means of paper rolls for the water and water colours for the colourful fish.


The colour psper rolls work was a little tiring for the kids, so after 3 classes pasting paper, they loved using the water colours.



Some of the projects will go home unfinished, but they’re amazing works for them and their families.

The Week’s password





During this academic year, we’re practizing and learning different English expressions from the oral English. 
All around the school, the students can learn and repeat different sentences to use during the class. 
Every 2 weeks the teachers change the expressions.






Playing Bingo in kindergarden



Kindergarden 5 kids were playing Pet Bingo for fun.
They’re listening to the teacher saying names of animals, pets, and putting a little toy on the animal when they recognize. When they have a line, they should shout “bingo”.



They’re great playing bingo. They had a great time. 

Finishing the Pets project, the kids could choose their favourite pet, cut and stick them into a heart.



Great work, now they can talk about their own pets saying number and colours.
