Five senses for 1st graders

Hi you all! 
1st graders are learning this song about senses. 
I had the opportunity to learn it some years ago with an Irish student who was doing her practicum at our school.

Muzzy for 3rd grade

Do you remember Muzzy stories?
I'm sure you have great memories, haven't you?
By the way,
here you have a picture from one of his chapters to practise prepositions.
We will do the activity in the next English lesson.

Similes


What is a simile?
A simile is when you compare two things.
  Lenka sings in this video a song that it will help you to understand it better.

Present Simple

Hi CS students! 
Click on the picture below and practise present simple.

Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual. The action can be a habit, a hobby, a daily event, a scheduled event or something that often happens. It can also be something a person often forgets or usually does not do.

It's about time

 Ugh...teaching time is one of the most difficult things for me.  I mean, if you think about it there are A LOT of skills for our students to learn!  
This is a good resource to teach time.
After the clock is put together, just practice, Practice, PRACTICE!
Thanks a lot to the crazy teacher!

Be kind!

2nd graders learnt this nice poem!

Please and thank you
are magic words
we need to say
very often, every day.

Please and thank you
are useful words
to help you be polite
and make people feel alright.

Please and thank you
are the best words
to say people
with a big bright smile!


Let your children know how happy it makes you when they are being kind and responsible. 
Let's listen to them!

Note for families: you will see this poem in the children's scrapbook.

Values

In every life we have some trouble, when you worry you make it double!


IT'S JUST FINE

It's fine to be
happy or sad.
It's fine to be
brave or scared.
It's fine to have
short or long hair.
It's fine to play
or just watch.

It's fine to be alone
or want company.
It's fine to be thin
or fat.
It's fine to wear jeans
or a skirt.

It's fine to dance
or sit down.
It's just fine
to be
what you
want to be!

An amazing ending

Hi 1st graders!
After watching the Gingerbread story,  you  decided that the bird didn't eat the gingerbread man and we thought about an ending.
Let's see if this ending likes you...

The Gingerbread man

Hi everyone! How is all going? 
A new week is here and we have lots of things to do. 
To begin with, here you have this famous story. 
Let's think about different endings and
we will talk about them in the next English lesson.

By the way, if you want to cook a gingerbread man, here you have the recipe. Delicious!
