Let's speak in English! Countries and Nationalities

Dear friends,
You know how important it is to make our students SPEAK in ENGLISH.
Speaking opens the door to an active communication, and I think this is the main role of our subject.

What do you think about it?

I want to share this link with you, because I'm sure you will use it in your English lessons, making our students listen and practice these great dialogues...

Let's start by COUNTRIES AND NATIONALITIES, a basic topic that motivates students to speak in a foreign language.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Lots of kisses,

Daniela A. Ayala M.

Our Christmas photographs!! Fotitos de Navidad 2011

¡Hola! ¿cómo estáis? tras haber pasado algunos problemas técnicos con picture trail, por fín puedo mostraros las fotos de Navidad.

Lo pasamos fenomenal en Diciembre con la visita de los Reyes Magos, cantamos Villancicos, hicimos manualidades, y visitamos el edificio de Infantil cantando Christmas carols a los más peques del colegio.

Además, mis alumnos de 5º se fueron contentos de vacaciones con sus portátiles.

¡Un saludo!

Our Science Project!! Matter and changes of state

Dear friends,
During these last weeks, we were working on the didactic unit MATTER.

One of the main items was MATTER AND CHANGES OF STATE.

My students know that there are three states in matter: Solid, liquid and gas.

Taking into account this and the different names of changes of state ( melting, solidification, boiling, evaporation, condensation, sublimation),They had to make a cake and explain what the changes are when we cook it.

It's an observation project but it's also a reinforcement of the knowledge they've acquired in the last days.

I have to say THANK YOU to their parents, because I know they helped them a lot with this.

Some students didn't make a cake, but they investigate the task on the internet.

I would like you to have a look at these two examples of projects :)

Thank you for following me!!

Free online children books

Good Morning! 
How are you doing? Today I feel really well, because yesterday we were celebrating Saint Valentine's Day.
Have you ever flown on an autogiro? The experience is fantastic, I think I will repeat it again someday...

Today, I suggest you to have a look at this wonderful website. It's a nice website where you can find lots of stories. But this time, the stories are gorgeous, because they tell the story using flash and movements and also sound.

I don't want to tell you more things about STORYTELLING, I just want you to CLICK on the link and see what it is about, ok?

After doing so, please, let me know, what you think about this post.

Lots of hugs and valentine's kisses,
Enjoy the weekend!!!

Celebrating Valentine's Day!!


Dear friends,
Love is one of the most important things in our life, so, why don't we celebrate Valentine's Day too?
Friendship and love are in the same path of our lives. When we have love, we show happiness, don't you think so?

Next week, on Monday the 14th, I'm going to sing a beautiful song with my students.
So you want to sing it with us?

Let's watch the video and follow the lyrics.

I wish you all a gorgeous Valentine's Day!!!

Learning new skilss: SEMAPHORE FLAGS

Dear children,
Today We've learnt something new, the Semaphore flags!!
Remember that you have to study your NAME using these signs, and if you want you can also learn the name of a classmate or my name :).

Enjoy this task, and don't forget to build up your own flags, It's not difficult, right?

Have a nice weekend,


PS: Here you've got a link where you can find the semaphore flags and the correspond letters for each one.

This is what YOU have to do next week. Your classmates will guess what name you are saying and we will spell different words using these nice semaphore flags.
