Robot dictation

Our next task of the eTwinning project Talking Second Graders was to listen and draw a robot. Each group prepared a description of a robot and shared it with the others. 

We've decided on this description:
His head is a pink square.
His eyes are two blue circles.
His nose is a green triangle.
His mouth is a red rectangle.
His ears are two yellow stars.

EDL T-shirt designs

Two of my artistic Class 6 students, Aleksandra and Ivana, took part in the international contest organised by the Council of Europe. Their task was to come up with a T-shirt design for the European Day of Languages.

As you can see, Aleksandra decided to combine the national animals with their names in the languages of the countries they come from and Ivana chose one of the most popular symbols of European capitals and wrote a sentence connected to that capital in different languages.

Outdoor games

My younger pupils like moving around, so this Thursday I decided to have our lesson outside. There was a lot of running and screaming but, at least, nobody minded.

We played different games, but Houses-Foxes-Earthquake and Rock-Paper-Scissors turned out to be the best. 

For the game Houses-Foxes-Earthquake, children make a circle, with pairs holding hands like a roof of a house and one child standing under the roof. When the child in the middle of the big circle calls out, 'Foxes', all 'foxes' change their houses and he/she can find their own house. When the child calls out, 'Houses', all 'houses' make a new house with another child. When the child calls out, 'Earthquake', everyone changes places/roles.

Rock-Paper-Scissors is a well-known game, but we played it in a slightly different way. The child who loses the game twice, stands behind the winner and cheers for them while they play another child.
