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.
Christmas is always a lot of fun for my youngest pupils. They make wishes, draw, play games, sing songs and things like that.
year we've read a story called 'The Gingerbread Man'. First, I
introduced them to the stars of this story: the little old woman, the
little old man and the Gingerbread Man. I told them that the Gingerbread
Man runs away from home and meets three animals along the way. I asked
them to draw the three animals, watch the story and order the animals (a cow, a
horse and a fox). Then, we checked their ideas, talked about the
story and played games.
I also prepared some cut-outs with Christmas symbols (Christmas tree, snowman, the Gingerbread Man, Father Christmas, Rudolf and elf) for them to colour and decorate their pencils with.
Since no Christmas can be
imagined without songs, we sang some familiar ones and learned a new
one called S-A-N-T-A. This song is perfect for learning spelling.
Food is probably one of the most favourite topics of my younger pupils. They like eating different things, but sweets and pizza are on the top of their lists.
We learned some food words last year, but this year we've added a few more. I asked them to choose 5 new ones to draw and copy the names of. So, after 3 lessons, one for each meal, they all had pictionaries of 15 food words, accompanied by 3 big clocks showing 7 (morning), 12 (lunch) and 6 o'clock (dinner).
