A Cherokee legend

An old Indian was telling a story to his grandchild: it was about two wolves living inside every human. These two wolves are  constantly fighting each other. One of the wolves is bad -it’s full of greed, envy, laziness, inferiority, selfishness, hatred… The other wolf is good -it’s full of generosity, bravery, respect and kindness.

At his point the grandchild asked: ‘Which wolf wins?’ And the old Cherokee grandad answered: ‘The one you feed.’

Which wolf did you feed today?

Key Competences Test Training

Every school year one of the many tasks we are involved in in the classroom is training our 6th grade students to get good results in the Key Competences Test that takes place every first week in May.

What we basically do is solving past years tests, training in creative writing and reading skills as well as in listening comprehension.

This year we’ve just started to work with the KC Tests, so I’m reposting them here now, so that you can prepare them properly:

A happy October weekend!

Happy 2016-17 school year

Let’s celebrate this new adventure in learning English with some easy jokes from English Club by Helen Baker:

  1. A man wanted to drive to Littlemorehampton. He lost his way. He stopped and asked someone,
    “Which is the road to Littlemorehampton?”
    “Turn right until you arrive at the farm of Mr Humbert.”
    “But which farm is Mr Humbert’s?”
    “The one on the corner of the road that goes to Littlemorehampton.”
  2. A small child met his new teacher for the first time.
    “Are you good?” asked the teacher.
    “I am the sort of boy my mummy tells me not to play with.”
  3. A man went to a shoe-shop to buy shoes. He put many pairs on his feet. Finally, he was satisfied.
    “At last,” he said, “I have found a pair of shoes that fit me.”
    “I am not surprised,” replied the weary salesman, “They are your own shoes.”

Olympic Games Fun!

I know you enjoyed a lot the Shaun the Sheep episodes last Christmas holidays. Now, since this school year you all have been learning so much about the Olympic Games and your projects were based upon this subject I thought you’d enjoy this ‘Championsheeps‘😉 and have fun.

Meet Fireman Sam

Fireman Sam is always ready to drive his lorry to the rescue! Enjoy these episodes😉

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,000 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Happy Christmas holidays!

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas time and I’d like to suggest you a couple of activities to have fun these days at home. First of all, you can watch Season 1 of Shaun the Sheep and then you can either take a quiz about those episodes or go check Shaun the Sheep website for some extra amusement. Now that I think, why not to choose both? 😊🎄🌟💫✨
