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.

Visiting a farm
Our virtual visit to the farm went off just fine.
We started the lesson with a well-known song about Old MacDonald and his farm animals:
After the song, it was time for us to visit a real farm, thanks to a short film. We saw a lot of different animals, cows, goats, rabbits, even rats, big lizards and snakes. I could see, and hear, that my pupils were amazed and surprised at the same time. No one expected to see a snake or a lizard on the farm! We talked about the chores on the farm, baby animals and if they have ever helped with the animals. Some of my pupils were proud to share the good news about their baby goats, rabbits, dogs and cats.
Then, I asked my pupils to draw and colour some farm animals. For the rest of the lesson we sang songs, played memory games, a hangman and a quiz.
