Spanish Autonomous Communities

¡Hola! Siempre que abro mi buzón de correo educativo, me encuentro con buenas sorpresas, y he pensado en compartirlas con todos.
¡aquí va un estupendo power point! Lo ha realizado voluntariamente Lucía Sevilleja, alumna de 5ºA.
Ella quiere que os lo enseñe y que nos sirva de introducción en este nuevo tema de Science :).

Un besito,

Reading Corners


Hi!! How are you? Today it seems that spring has left us for a few days... we're in autumn again ;) hehehe.
I don't know why, but today I'm in the mood to talk about CORNERS in the ENGLISH CLASS.
Let's start today by the READING CORNER.

It's interesting to have a place in our class where our students can find English books, and show their interest for this second language.

We can  use this corner specially when students finish their homework, an exam or whatever other task we are doing at this moment in the class.

Sometimes, we forget corners... and we leave them just for infant education. But... I think it's a terrible mistake.

We can prepare a specific space at the back of the class, showing the books on boxes. We can also label the boxes depending on the topic of our books...These are just some basic ideas I've got, you know?

What do you think about it?  I think we can change things together... there's no need to have the books all the time in the library, don't you think so? Would you like to have a READING CORNER in your class?
How can you organize it?

Please, send me your opinions writing some  comments at the end of the message :)
Thank you very much,

Take care,

Teacher Daniela.

Today is the best day to put on your green clothes and feel "green" for a day, I mean, feel Irish.  :P
Saint Patrick's Day is specially celebrated in Ireland, but we should remember that in many other countries people also celebrate this day.
So, why don't we celebrate it too??  I wish you could find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,he, he, he.

This year, I invite you to have a look at this video,made by Eric Herman, the best one!! Listen to it carefully, I'm sure you will love it too.

Do you want to draw and colour your own Leprechaun?? Here is an excellent worksheet that you can  use at school. DRAW YOUR OWN LEPRECHAUN

During the last years, I also published resources to be worked on this festival. You can revise the materials in the following links:

That's all folks!!

¡Hola a todos! Es esta unidad que estamos trabajando, La fuerza y el movimiento, voy a incluir algunas nociones básicas como el concepto de :  push and pull.
Lo que me viene genial para el área de science como clil, dado que  así evitamos en un futuro confundir push and pull :)

Los niños realizarán esta actividad (clic en la imagen) y después llevaremos a cabo otros ejercicios en unas fichas ya dadas.
De ese modo afianzarán los conceptos.

¡Espero que os guste esta idea para llevar a la práctica en el aula con la ayuda de la PDI!

Un besote y feliz regreso al cole,

Daniela A. Ayala M.
