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!
I’m posting some of my students’ favourites so far. Oh, and you can follow GoNoodle on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
Now enjoy these GoNoodles videos:

Here I’m posting some videos for you to enjoy these summer holidays. Don’t hesitate to play them when you’re bored, when you’re with friends, in the morning, in the evening, at a “revetlla”, in a “verbena”, at a party… and get dancing and rapping your heart away!!!
Have a fantastic summer, my little friends! ❤

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.
This is the original version with subtitles.
And this is the instrumental version:
Sing along this lovely song 🙂

Super Simple Learning is a website full of fun, lovely videos and other resources for little kids learning English. Let’s have a touch of Halloween here at Cloudy Seaside mood by enjoying two of their most popular Halloween videos:
I just couldn’t believe it when I came across this song my 1st BUP EFL teacher, Mrs. Àngels Bogunyà, used to play in class: I’m walking down the street (Present Continuous), by The Solid British Hat Band. It really made my day 🙂
And what about this other song, Mr. Monday (Simple Present)?
[Wherever you are now, Àngels, you’ll never know how many times I’ve fondly thought of you. I’m still so grateful for your patience and hard work!]
