PICTURE DICTIONARY

Throughout the course, we introduce in our Picture Dictionary, the vocabulary words that come out in each unit to be able to study them better.
To avoid translations into the mother tongue, we have chosen the option to relate each word to its corresponding drawing.

MIND MAPS

Different options for the creation of the mind maps:

  •  Graffiti wall:

It helps you in a group to share lots of ideas about one topic. First, use sticky notes to stick the individual ideas in the poster and then, comment them in the group.

General activities

SOLVING PROBLEMS CORNER

SOLVING PROBLEMS TECHNIQUE:

  • Objective: to free students from the dependence of teachers when solving their conflicts with their classmates.
  • Place: a corner of the class.
  • Methodology: when two or more students present a problem with each other, they will use a corner of the classroom to talk about the incident and try to solve it among themselves. The teacher will not take part in the procedure at any time, just in case the problem is something really serious and the students do not reach an agreement.
  • How it works: These students go to the corner of the class called “Solving Problems Corner”.In this corner the students have three small sections: in the left part of the corner, there is an ear, in the middle one, two joined hands that will have the meaning of making peace, and in the right one a mouth.To begin with the dynamic, the student who is located in the mouth will have to express how he has felt and what he thinks about the issue, while the student located in the ear will focus on listening to what his partner is saying.Once the first step is over, they will change positions, that is, they will change roles. Who has heard now will speak and vice versa.Finally, the two students will be in the center, giving a solution to the problem, reaching an agreement, asking for forgiveness and making peace with a handshake.

WORKING WRITING SKILLS

During the second unit, we have been working on different aspects of vocabulary, grammar, listening, reading… That´s why the time has come to implement everything learned in one final production.

The truth is that they´ve created wonderful works and they have improved a lot using and carrying out everything they have previously learned.

Here are some examples…

In 5th level, they have prepared a SCHOOL TIMETABLE and they´ve described their favourite school day:

SPEAKING THROUGH ICT

In the last post of WRITING SKILL, we have talked about the final writing production of the first unit.  Therefore, in this post we are going to work about SPEAKING SKILL.

In lower levels of Primary, we present our works (writings in this case) in class, but in the case of the 6th level of Primary Education, these children should take one more step, and we´ve worked the area of making videos.

Nowadays, the new technologies are too important in their learning process, that´s why they use computers in class instead of books and they should acquire some skills in this field.  At the same time, speaking in English is so important in our society to communicate with people all over the world. These are the main reasons to work this skills in class.

For fulfilling these objectives, each student has prepared one video for making their oral presentations.

Here you have some examples (only those who have wanted to participate):
