Mystery Song: New section for 6th grade class

Starting last week, the 6th grade group is facing a new challenge each week -a listening activity consisting of guessing the title of a well-known pop song as well as the singer/band who played it. This activity scores 10 points in Listening abilities and 10 more points in Attitude towards study. There’s a whole week to solve the exercise and on Fridays each week we’ll have a sing along.

The solution to last week Mystery song is Why Can’t I Be You?, by The Cure.

The Gruffalo

The Gruffalo, by writer Julia Donaldson and illustrations by Axel Scheffler, is a children’s book on its way to our classroom library. It is about a mouse that uses its brain to avoid becoming a tasty snack for a fox, a snake and an owl. He tells them about a big, scary monster, the gruffalo. But everyone knows that there is no such a thing as a gruffalo. Or isn’t there?

While we wait for the story book to get to our classroom you can enjoy the movie, based on the book. I hope you like it as much as I do 🙂

EDIT 12.19.14: The Gruffalo arrived safe and sound in the classroom!

Immersion Camp and a few more things

Back from the Immersion Camp at the beautiful Planoles, where the kids had a wonderful time and were speaking English from dawn to sunset. They even had an exciting Disco Party the second -and last- night!

Thanks a lot to Laura, Dave, Rachel (the monitors), Pura (the Director) and all the staff at Pere Figuera Hostel! You really made our Camp a keeper!

On a different subject, now that November is coming to an end we’re sad to say goodbye to our 6th grade epals at Lake Region Middle School but we’ll still continue exchanging emails with 7th graders. We’ve been exchanging info about the weather, school and Hallowe’en so far, and now we’ll be heading to tell them about our Immersion Camp adventures.

Apart from this, although it seems a lifetime from now, some belated Hallowe’en decoration in our classroom this year. Hope you all enjoy them, and maybe inspire you for next year decor?

And last but not least, a warm farewell to Salah, who finally moved to France last Saturday, for whom the Camp was his last activity in our school. All the best for him and his family! xoxox
