Here in the English Classroom have recently discovered GoNoodle and our students are enjoying their chants, relaxation and mindfulness activities, raps and choreos. We use English subtitles so that our kids can sing along and fully enjoy the funny lyrics those raps and chants have. Those GoNoodle guys really know how to engage kids in meaningful and fun activities!
Our 6th graders are keeping a regular email contact with 7th graders from Butternut, Wisconsin, consisting in exchanging cultural and personal information through fortnightly messages. The school is Butternut Elementary and we have contacted through epals.com
Our students are really excited to learn about their new epals and are eager to send and receive news from their American friends.
Another epals exchange will take place later in May-June between our 5th graders and a class in North Dakota that is learning about Spain.
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.’
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.”
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.”
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.”
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? 😊🎄🌟💫✨
Looks like Santa is sending us a present this Christmas, and a very cool one! A brand new pack of story books is on its way to our classroom and I guess we’ll be able to receive them just before Christmas holidays.
I’ve selected a range of levels so that, from 1st to 6th graders, everyone can enjoy them.
