A' JUNIOR FUN ACTIVITY: WHAT'S IN EACH STUDENT'S BOX?

The 8-year-old students had great fun hiding animals in their boxes or bags and inviting their friends to guess, also writing accompanying dialogues as a part of this game.










The video of Ted and Lucy was a true inspiration for this activity!



10-YEAR-OLD STUDENTS REMIND US OF THE 3 Rs: REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE!

Reusing everyday materials to make a whole new project/ work of art!

A colourful pencil case made of a tin can.

An old mobile phone case turned into a new one and a different pencil case.

What do you do to save energy?

POETRY DAYS IN OUR SCHOOL


Using the Poetry App for the iPad with various age groups.

Notes on "The Road Not Taken"

Younger learners got acquainted with poetry through the Dr Seuss' iPad apps,
 which show the verse and the illustrations,
allowing the children to click on the images
and listen to the corresponding word.



Explaining the characteristics of Haiku poetry
to 11-year-old learners. Useful related article.

Resulting blog posts: Haiku poetry by C' ClassD' Class and the B2-level group. 


Drafting our first poems. 

Another form of poetry in everyday life: Jump rope rhymes!
This is our favourite one:

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around,

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, show your shoe

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, that will do!

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, go upstairs-

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say your prayers-

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn out the lights-

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say good-night!




Loads of ideas about how to use poetry in the classroom.
