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

Dialogues in the Green Class

Hello Families-

It’s Lindley here and I was a guest teacher this week in the Green Class!  I absolutely loved teaching your children again–it has been a long time since I was their English teacher in the Yellow Class!  They have grown so much and progressed in their languge learning!

This week we reviewed the Hello Song.  Not only did we sing it, but we also took turns using the language in short dialogues in pairs.

The dialogues sounded like this:

A: Hello!

B: Hello!

A: How are you?

B: I´m good. (or I’m great.)  How about you?

A: I’m good.

Another dialogue we practiced was:

A: Hello!

B: Hello!

A: What’s your name?

B: I’m ……  What’s your name?

A: I’m ……  Nice to meet you.

B: Nice to meet you.

Of course, the students still need some prompting with some of the lines, (and sometimes we had to sing the lines to remember them!) but it was really exciting for them to have a conversation in English!  We will continue to practice!

Happy weekend!

Lindley

PS. Here is the link to the song again so you can revise the conversations at home.
