Dora the explorer!! Let's play and colour in our digital board!

Dora the explorer is one of my favourite cartoons ;). Young children love it too.
It's interesting to choose activities with characters that children know and love.
We can teach the colours and revise the basic knowledge of this topic through this great activity.
Please, use the digital board and you will understand the reasons of using it as a feauture in the class as well as the result you get on your students!!

Clic on this LINK and colour Dora!!
Kisses and hugs,

First cycle resources: Learn and use the Digital board in your class ;)

English for young learners is so important. We should teach English using the new technologies and today we have a very good option.
This LINK will help you, because it's perfect for the interactive and digital board.
Children can use the link at home too, but it would be great to do some activities with them in the class.
As they love touching the IDB, your class will be a total success ;).

Visit the website and let me know what you think about it!
Enjoy the weekend!!

How to learn the colours through mandalas

Gines Ciudad Real from Orientación Andújar, has created this activity about COLOURS. I always say that mandalas are a good way of learning in the very first stages. 

We as teachers, can work on attention, psicomotor skills, creativity... and at the same time we can praise them with beautiful mandalas to learn a new language, English.
While they're coloring, they're learning and having fun.

That's the essence of a good activity.
You can find more mandalas in this LINK

I have to thank Ginés for this good resource for our English lessons.

Have a nice week!!

Fun with Phonics for children!

I love this methodology because I think children learn more saying and listening new words :). If they practice and practice at the end they will understand the use of English and its correct pronunciation.

Let's see it and use it in our lessons! I'll do it, and you?
Have a wonderful week!
