5th of November: Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes Day!!!!

Hello dear friends!!
How are you doing?? It's a pleasure to tell you that next November the 5th it's celebrated Guy Fawkes Day in Britain.


Bonfire Night is a uniquely British event when we "celebrate" the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot against the King and Parliament in the early 17th Century. In fact, nobody cares about the origins of the celebration anymore, but we all enjoy a good bonfire, firework display, and sausages on the 5th November each year!

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot,
We see no reason,
Why gunpowder treason,
Should ever be forgot!


We, as English teachers, can explain our students some basic information, using some resources such as the ones I'm adding here:


For  secondary teachers I suggest you this WORKSHEET.
Would you like to cook something special on Bonfire night? Have a look at these delicious baked potatoes ;)


You can also use this worksheet to explain some basic concepts through this glossary



Please, have a look at this site, where you'll find more resources and also last year's article


Enjoy !!

Summer is here! : Summer Wordsearches

Hello!!! During these days, the temperature has increased a lot in Spain, so there are some hours that it's a bit difficult to go out with children.


This is the reason why I was looking for different tasks to do at home, or school, with our children.


As the topic is Summer, it would be nice to do some of these wordsearches. If your children are not so young, you can suggest them to create their own summer wordsearch, adding pictures and coloring them too.


Do you like the idea?


Have a look at these websites and choose the best one for you and your children.


Love,


Teacher Daniela, @DanielaAyalaM

Teaching English with Maths crafts


Hello everybody! I've just came back from Holidays, We've been in Scadinavia visiting different and beautiful cities there.So now, as I have rested for a while, I've got a bag full of great ideas for you and your children :-D

English can be taught in many different ways. Today I'm going to concentrate on maths. It's important to transmit the information in a funny and easy way to get the main goal in our students: communicate in the English language.

As you can see in this photo, there is a number cut down. You can decorate it with stickers and also write the same number inside the big three :-). 

Moreover, you are teaching maths using crafts, isn't it funny and different? 
After finishing this project you can prepare a game with the numbers and why not? use them to decorate the classroom or your children's bedroom...

I have found this idea in this LINK, have a look at this to look for more information!!!

Have a nice week, let's start August with a big SMILE!!
Love,
teacher Daniela A. Ayala M.

Kids and children Magazines





Dear friends,
Today I focus my searching on magazines: Educative magazines for children.
Magazines help us to teach English, you know why?
They help us with the different skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing, and also vocabulary.


It's a funny and different way of teaching something in English, because we motivate our students to use the new language and we show them how fun it is to do it.


I will number a list of magazines that I have found, I hope they're useful for you too.
Don't forget this activity must be guided ;-)


A big hug from here!

Summer Printables 2011!! : Dominoes

Hello!! How are you? Our children are on holidays and they know it's time to play and enjoy the season with their families and friends.
Due to this, I suggest you to do some funny games with them.
English can also be used during this season, Do you know how?...
Let's prepare an easy game with vocabulary, dominoes. 
Children have to cut the pictures. After that you can show them the main words. Prepare big flash cards and ask your child point to his picture.
At the end, they will be able to discriminate every word and sound. They will feel confident with the basic vocabulary and as a consecuence, they'll love this game: Dominoes.


Have a look at this LINK with different resources to have fun on summer.


Enjoy the game!!
Lots of kisses,


Teacher Daniela A. Ayala M.
