Learning the ABC and colours!

Learning the alphabet and the colours are the basic things our students should know in the first term of 1st grade Primary Education.

Today, I'd like you test this on called: Color by Letter.
A woman says the instructions. In the right column there're two letters and in the left side you can read and choose the different colours.

Once you've finished the exercise, the word is spelled.

I think this interactive activity is good for 5-6 year old students.
I hope you all love it!!
Do not forget to show this activity in the whiteboard. 
Coloring the star there will be totally different!!

Have an excellent week!!

Daniela A. Ayala M.
PS: Happy teacher's Day to all of you!!! ;)

5 "Back to School" Kindergarten Stories.

"Mummy, Mummy, I'd like to hear a new story,pleaseeee... "How many times have you heard this on a child's voice? Although you're a mum/dad or not, I know you've lived this situation at least once :D.

Children and young learners need stories to feel confident, to grow up and to feel how creative life could be. So... I've been thinking about the different stories my parents told me when I was a very young girl, and I can say that I still remember some of them...

Today I'm not going to tell you these stories, but I'll share 5 different videos with beautiful and great stories you can use in your English class during the first weeks of school.

Is it a smile in your face? Good!!! :D I'm sure you also remember some of these nice momentos when we were in the kindergarten or in the first years of school, don't you?

Our students are looking for a teacher who motivates them in the English learning process and this can surely start throughout a story.

Have you ever felt like a child? I have! and today is a good starting point to repeat this feeling.

They are all beautiful stories ;) . Let's enjoy watching them!

Ready, steady, Go!!!



In a next episode I promise to record my own story!!;-) 
Kisses and hugs,
Teacher Daniela A. Ayala Molinari.

See you!!!!

Because I'm Happy - Pharrell Williams : Time for a Song

Happiness is the main objective in our lives and music always helps us to feel better.
For this reason, I have decided to sing this song with my students from 1st and 2nd level of E.S.O.
The video I'm sharing today is something special for me. I think it's full of energy and it spreads it everywhere, don't you think so?

This Karaoke version is amazing!! 
Let's sing it, dance it and learn it! and also... Yes!!! Let's learn English while we're singing it!

Clap along if you feel that that's what you wanna do!!!!

You can watch the original video in this LINK: The singer is Pharrell Williams

How to play games using the Whiteboard: My favourite game, The Hangman.

Have you ever played this game? I'm sure you have played it at least once in your life! 
We sometimes play Hangman with kids when teaching the alphabet, but it is also an interesting game for other types of activities.
Can you guess how?

The Hangman is an incredible time-saver in your lessons. Do not prepare worksheets for that day, and  use the last 15 minutes to play with them. 
Have you got a projector and a whiteboard in the class? Great! Ask your students to be the teachers during the game. They will love using the whiteboard as well as solving the exercises.

Playing games creates a better atmosphere in the class and you can apply this game to any student. You just have to  choose the topic and start guessing the different letters that form missing word.

So... Ready, Steady, Go!!

Let's play together !

Click here and you will access to the game.

Enjoy it!!

Kisses and hugs,
Daniela A. Ayala Molinari.

TPR Activities! Singing, moving and learning English!

Hello! I've just finished the lesson and I'm very very happy because all my students have participated a lot in the activities.
Kids love songs, rythm, music and movement so it was great to sing and dance with them while we learn English!

These are the songs I used today to practise the numbers and parts of the body.
I hope they sing and dance them again at home!
Daniela A. Ayala M.
