Red class: Rainbow Colors

Our Red Class had lots of fun today singing the Rainbow Colors and learning about Pete, a funky cat who loves to wear boots!

Group 1-2 Transport lesson 1 Pete the Cat by Yvonne Scherphof on Genially

 

This past couple of weeks in the Orange, Red, and Green Classes, we have been working on different topics, such as: routines, class rules, emotions and now, the colors! Our little ones are very enthusiastic about English and love to sing along different songs.

Nuestra Clase Roja se divirtió mucho hoy cantando la canción del Arcoiris y aprendiendo sobre Pete, un gato al que le gusta llevar botas.

En las pasadas semanas, nuestros grupos de infantil han estado aprendiendo sobre temas variados como las rutinas, reglas de clase, emociones, y ahora los colores. Nuestros peques están llenos de entusiasmo cuando toca clase de inglés y disfrutan cantando diferentes canciones en dicho idioma.

Welcome back to school!

 

Hello from the Foreign Department. This is  Julia.  I am going to be your English and French teacher this year and I am so excited to work with you!

Before, we go further, as  the newest member of the language department at Alquería, I want to introduce myself.  My name is Julia Aguilar and I am a native of Granada who has lived in the United States for more than a decade. I am so excited to be back in my hometown doing what I love most: teaching! I look forward to meeting all of my new students and their families. I will be teaching all the preschool classes and Year 1 and Year 2 English and French (Lindley will be co-teaching  Year 2 ENG with me).

ORANGE, RED AND GREEN CLASSES:OCTOBER

Hi everyone! First of all, I wanted to show you my apologies for not having updated the blog during the last days -as you already know, I’ve just arrived to the school and needed some lessons about how the blog works (thanks, Lindley and Isa!)

Now that I’ve learned some basic steps (hopefully I will get used to it as I practice with these first messages), let me talk to you about what we’ve been doing during these last two weeks in the Orange, Red and Green Class.

Orange Class

Starting every class with the greetings and some songs they already know (Hello Song, the Colours Song…) we played a lot with the colours, both in the classroom and in the park. Taking advantage of one of the pupils’ birthday, we also blew up some balloons and talked about their colours while dancing to the music. Every day, we’ve been talking about the weather and autumn. We simulated being some autumn elements (wind, leaves, squirrels, little frogs…)

One day, we went with Silvia for a walk to La Vega, and we learned how beautiful the autumn landscape can be!

The students will  recognize this song:

Red Class

I was so happy to discover to what extent they already understand English! We’ve been learning some fruits and vegetables, playing withg the classroom toys («I want a tomato, please!») One day, we coloured some vegetables flashcards and they had to ask in English for the colour they wanted to use. Then, we made a presentation of their own «Fruit and vegetables flashcards» and they were so proud of them! They quickly said which fruit/vegetable  it was and its colour («A brown potato«, etc.)

We also sang a lot and talked about the autumn and the weather (I am pretty sure that their favourite song this unit has been this one!):

Green Class

We’ve been mainly learning the parts of the body, also talking about the colours, the weather, and celebrating one of the pupils’ birthday!

They had real fun singing and dancing some body songs, but what they really loved is to play Simon Says while they learned some body parts and some actions related to them («Simon says ‘Touch your nose‘!, etc.)

This was their favourite song! (Our two bilingual pupils inherently invited the rest of the class to sing the «Here we go!» part, which was so enriching for everyone!):

DEAR FAMILIES- PERDON POR SOLO PUBLICAR ESTA ENTRADA AHORA.  PENSE QUE SE HABIA PUBLICADO JUSTO CUANDO ÁNGELA SU UNIÓ AL EQUIPO, PERO POR LO VISTO SE PUBLICÓ SÓLO EN LOS BLOGS DE INFANTIL.  ASÍ QUE OS PIDO PERDÓN!

Dear families:

I am Ángela, the new English and French teacher in pre-school and early primary and I’m so glad to  have the opportunity to teach your little ones!

As you may already know, this is my first year at Alquería, so I’m getting to know my little students and help them get used to their new teacher as soon as possible.

Thus (as you can imagine) last week has been a bit of a «restart» in language classroom, during which time we’ve been reviewing previous contents in English, especially the greetings song and introductions .
I am quickly learning their names and a little bit of their amazing characters and personalities.

I’m eager to get to know them better as we move forward in October!  I will post again soon and update you on what exactly we are working on in English and French class!

Have a wonderful week!

Ángela

Reconnecting with my youngest students….

Hello families of the Orange class!

It’s Lindley here again!  What a pleasure to be with the orange class as a guest English teacher this week!

Though I see all the children in the park each day,  I was so excited to reconnect in the classroom with the children I taught in the Yellow class last year!  It has been a long time since I last saw them in March, and they have grown so much!

This week we reviewed the Hello Song and greetings in English.  We also practiced basic instrucions for English class with the Actions Song.  Here is it so that you can practice essential understanding for the classroom at home with «stand up, sit down.»

We also began to practice colors.  We watched some videos about colors, talked about colors in the classroom and finally we made monochromatic towers.  Each student asked for one color and repeated it in English to get their blocks for their towers.

Here are the songs to continue practicing at home.
