"H" For Halloween and for Homework

Nuestra decoración de Halloween está casi terminada.Las hojas de tantísimos colores que habéis traído  se ven preciosas.Hemos creado un centro otoñal con castañas, piñas, bellotas, nueces, cortezas que nos servirán para nuestras conversaciones en inglés.
El tema de los sentidos avanza y para este fin de semana necesitamos experimentar el sentido del gusto (taste). Abriremos la nevera y a saborear algo dulce (sweet), algo salado (salty), algo agrio (sour) y finalmente algo amargo (bitter). El tacto lo experimentaremos con nuestra bandeja de texturas; blandas (soft), duras (hard), lisas (smooth) y rugosas (rough).Identificar, nombrar, clasificar y representar datos en fichas de experimentos es la tarea de esta unidad.

La próxima semana (muy cortita) realizaremos el control de la unidad Playtime!, unidad 2 de nuestro libro de Inglés. Nombramos juguetes, colores, respondemos a preguntas What's this? What's your favourite toy? y la fonética de las letras E, F, G y H ( los vídeos del blog son de mucha ayuda).El workbook, unidad 2, tiene que estar completo.

Playtime! es la unidad y para practicar aquí tenéis algún juego!!!

Weekend cartoon!

Leaves, senses and decoration.

 Let's go outside in this autumn day! Just collecting leaves for our classroom we can go through our unit "the five senses".
  • We can SEE the colours of the leaves with our eyes.
  • We can SMELL the leaves with our nose.
  • We can TOUCH the leaves with our hands.
  • We can HEAR the crunchy leaves with our ears.
  • We can TASTE the snack "merienda" with our tongue.







Propuesta educativa Un paseo por el parque para hablar de cómo utilizamos los cinco sentidos en este espacio tan agradable en otoño. 
  • Utilizamos la vista para ver los múltiples colores de las hojas (amarillo, naranja, marrón...).
  • Utilizamos el oído para escuchar el ruido que hacen las hojas cuando se pisan.
  • Utilizamos el olfato para oler las hojas que recogemos para el mural.
  • Utilizamos el tacto al recoger las hojas que tocamos, algunas son suaves otras rugosas.
  • ¿Utilizamos el gusto? Tal vez encontremos una castaña o tal vez llevemos el bocadillo de merienda ¡qué rico! 
"Necesitamos hojas para la decoración de nuestra clase"

A nice story for a long weekend 




"La Roja" visits the Zoo

Los pronósticos del tiempo eran ciertamente penosos ¡¡lluvia!! pero no podía ser cierto que en nuestra primera salida tuviéramos tan mala suerte. La roja salía preparada con chubasqueros y hasta con un paraguas que casi que tenemos que utilizar de sombrilla. Hemos tenido un maravilloso, soleado y estupendo día de zoo.
Anécdota. Durante el espectáculo de Elvis "el león marino" la animadora ha dicho "Sólo se oye a los de rojo, a los del medio no se les  oye"."¡Venga chicos a participar!" ¿Quiénes eran los del medio? Se han picado las  profes y el  alumnado y al final la animadora ha dicho "Ahora muy bien , todos lo habéis hecho muy bien" Bueno, pues los del medio eran los mismos que se nos colaron a la entrada del zoo, un colegio uniformado...




Field Trip Reminder

Tomorrow is our field trip to the Zoo.  Please  make sure your child wears comfortable clothes.  We will arrive back at school in time for a late lunch (13:30h) We will  be having a  morning snack at the Zoo so please make sure your child has something to eat.

An autumn story for an autumn Sunday! 



Life in First Grade

After the first week of regular timetable we all feel tired.What a busy week?As you all know the new Language Assistants Ocean and Sophi joined us this week. They cannot wait to share with us all the things they have planned!


Internet is working again and together with our Smartboard, it has been so much easier to do English and Science. What a difference!

Our Art Gallery is a work in progress...and last but not least I have been collecting the ONE EURO for the AGENDA; I would like to collect all before the big weekend that is waiting for us.




Jeremy draws a monster

The monster
¡Qué bien lo hemos pasado con Rakesh en la biblioteca! Yo he sentido  un poco de miedo cuando  el monstruo regresó a casa por la noche y quiso la cama de Jeremy ¡qué mal educado!  ya sabéis , en inglés, How rude!! ¿Os ha gustado el final? ¿Qué hubieras hecho tú con este monstruo tan egoísta?

    

Book Summary:
Jeremy never leaves his third floor apartment - ever. One day he decides to draw a monster, and the monster comes alive. Instead of being the companion Jeremy was probably hoping for, the monster turns out to be a demanding and dictatorial creature. Jeremy can't keep up with his demands; "Draw me sandwich! I am hungry!" the monster says. "Draw me a toaster, I like toast!", and the monster doesn't say thank you. Finally, Jeremy draws him a bus ticket and sends the monster packing. While bidding adieu to the monster at the bus stop, a group of children invite Jeremy to stay outside and play ball, and he does. 
The story, while just a very engaging and funny read, is also a good example for young children learning the respectful and civil way of behaving in the larger world. 

Magic and colours

Esta semana hemos visitado el laboratorio y hemos creado colores de una forma divertida (agua y colorantes alimentarios). Nuestros trabajos con ceras y colorantes son estupendos y pronto se podrán ver en nuestra Art Gallery.Y para repasar un poquito el mundo de los colores tenemos nuestra serie favorita.
What is it?

Elmer

Elmer the elephant is bright-colored patchwork all over. No wonder the other elephants laugh at him! If he were ordinary elephant color, the others might stop laughing. That would make Elmer feel better, wouldn't it? The surprising conclusion of David McKee's comical fable is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter.
Elmer the elephant, a colorful character because of his patchwork hide and sense of humor, tries to blend in with the herd, but soon realizes that he's happiest just being himself.

New American Language Assistant

Hi! my name is Sophie and I am one of two new language Assistants at the school this year. I am from McLean, Virginia, which is located right outside Washington, D.C.

 I am very excited to be here with your children this year. I think it will be a fun filled year.

 Two things they have already learned are "Bubbles" and "Cris-Cross Apple Sauce" to help with listening skills. We applied these skills while reading our first book, "Elmer" in the "SACC Room" (Ludoteca). I am excited to get to know your children and help them learn my language and culture.
