First of all, I'd like to welcome you to my blog. My intention's to make it a place for cherishing great memories of working with school children.
Here you'll find some tips, projects done by my pupils, their essays and poems, video clips (I don't know if it's me, but my pupils really enjoy singing), and things that can be interesting and useful.
Municipal Foreign Languages Competition took place on 26 February 2006. Five of my oldest students (Jovana Milešević VIII1, Damjan Fijat VIII2, Aleksandar Mihaljev VIII3, Tijana Velemirov VIII3 and Dragoljub Grujin VIII4) did their best to complete the grammar test, but it turned out to be rather difficult.
The competitors were asked to do a lot of filling in for 60 minutes:
- fill in the blanks with the appropriate form of the given verbs,
- find and correct the mistakes in sentences,
- fill in the blanks with the appropriate form of the given words,
- fill in the blanks with the appropriate pronoun,
- fill in the blanks with the correct form of the verbs and make questions for the underlined words,
- write a dialogue and
- fill in the blanks with the appropriate form of the given words.
This is how my oldest (some might even find them very shy) students sang a cute song from our coursebooks in February 2006.
The song was originally sung by Neil Sedaka in 1961, 30 years before this generation of students was born, and here are the lyrics:
Tra la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la Happy birthday sweet sixteen. Tra la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la Happy birthday sweet sixteen. Today’s the day I’ve waited for Because you’re not a baby any more. You’ve turned into the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen. Happy birthday sweet sixteen. What happened to that funny face? My little tomboy now wears satin and lace. I can’t believe my eyes. You’re just a teenage dream. Happy birthday sweet sixteen. When you were only six, I was your big brother. Then when you were ten, we didn’t like each other. When you were thirteen, you were my funny Valentine. But since you’ve grown up, Your future is sewn up. From now on you’re gonna be mine. So, if I should smile with sweet surprise It’s just that you’ve grown up before my very eyes. You’ve turned into the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen. Happy birthday sweet sixteen.
