Happy Easter !

Let's celebrate and share our Easter traditions!
You can buy and boil some eggs. After that, dye them as the picture above. 
You will enjoy a lot if you share that task with your friends or your family as well. 
After that, you can hide the eggs and play with your friends. 
You can also give them as a present for Easter Monday!

Creativity at school

 Hi everyone!
 It's interesting that people see creativity and critical thinking as being opposed. 
It's partly because people associate creativity with being totally free. We can say that they work all together. This is the way we have understood in our creative workshops.
As most of you might already know, we have been working CREATIVITY at school , and the video below shows you a short summary of different activities at school. 
We have been creative in math, science, music, dance, teaching among different subjects because creativity is a process of having original ideas that have an important value for us.
Have a look!

Do you like...?

When we introduce the topic Food and Meals we sing some traditional songs. This topic very often seems boring to many of you, but when we start speaking about it, children are interested because everybody wants to say what they like.
Next video is a useful one. 
Children will learn easily the structure that the children sing in it.

How to play
Roll the dice and move up the board in a race against the computer.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

 Today is the anniversary of the day St. Patrick died many hundreds of years ago.
He lived in the fifth century, that's more than 1.500 years ago! 
St. Patrick is Ireland's patron saint. 
That means that people from Ireland believe that he protects them.

But who was St. Patrick
Also, this day is well known for a number of its traditions.
But, how do we celebrate his day? Here you have some recipes and craft ideas to celebrate it.
Families let me say that students will have the opportunity to have some information about the celebration with the presentation below. They also will learn what a shamrock is and some vocabulary about the legend with this wordsearch

The picture below will help 4th graders to choose the name of their personal leprechaun depending on their personal names and the month they were born.

I'm a little leprechaun

This St. Patrick's Day cute song for young children is delightful!

Wear green next Tuesday!

Hi everyone!
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. So, why don't we wear something green on Tuesday? 

That's an amazing idea. Can you imagine everyone at school wearing something that reminds you St. Patrick's?
Come on! Don't be shy and remember to prepare your green hat, t-shirt, shoes, jeans, trousers...whatever you want.
Meanwhile, here you have a clear video that explains the tradition.
See you next Monday.
