­­DON’T GIVE UP –  by: Bruno Mars

When you want/wants to do something that’s new
And it seem/seems really, really hard to do
You feel/feels like quitting, you feel/feels you’re through
Well I have/has some advice for you

If you want/wants to catch a ball
But you’re having no luck at all
The ball hit/hits your head, it hit/hits your nose
It hit/hits your belly, your chin and toes
Well, try and try and try again
Keep on trying and soon end
You put/puts your hands out in the air
You’ll catch the ball
Yes this I swear/swears

You got yourself roller skates
You put/puts them on and you feel/feels great
You stand/stands up, then you fall/falls,
Don’t think you can skate at all
You get/gets back up, then you trip/trips,
You skip/skips and tip/tips and slip/slips, and flip/flips
You try/tries and try/tries and try/tries some more
And soon you’re skating across the floor

Happy Monday.

All the best,

Teacher and Lindley

 

 

 

 

 

Can you type?

Good morning everyone! Congratulations on nearly completing your first week telecommuting  or «working from home.»

Reminder: Please look at liveworksheets.com. We have renewed worksheets with a mark of 7 or lower, and we have added more worksheets, including weekly reviews!  Stay motivated!  Do a self test!

We are sure there have been unexpectedly wonderful parts of working from home and some complicated ones too.  Since it is Friday, we wanted to leave you not with more homework, but with a link to practice a life skill that you may need more than ever in this new world order.

TYPING =MECANOGRAFÍA

We figure it is easier to work on a computer if you know how to write properly.  Learning to type is fun, and it makes writing on a computer faster and more accurate.

So, here is a picture that shows you how to position your hands on the «home row.»  This is the line of letters in the middle of a keyboard (teclado) where you keep your hands to type.  If you click on the picture, you will go to a link IN SPANISH to help you learn the basics of typing.

English in the Time of Corona Virus

Sorry, bad take on Gabriel Garcia Márquez´s title Love in the Time of Cholera….

Nonetheless, the world has not stopped turning, and this too shall pass, so while we are all at home, let’s take advantage of our free time to review and continue to practice all that we are learning in English.

By the time we are back together at school, hopefully, you will have reviewed and practiced any concepts that we have learned or that are difficult for you!  To help you with that, we have new exercises on liveworksheets and we will continue to add them.  Also, we will be posting video lessons and activities on the blog, so please keep checking it. If you have questions or doubts, comment to us on the blog.

Meanwhile, go wash your hands!

Stay in your house, take care of the people you love and stay well!  Take the weekend off, and check this space for work on Monday.

We’ll teach virtually for a while, and we´ll see you on the flip side!

All our best,

Lindley and Manolo
