A importância da aprendizagem do Inglês no 1.º Ciclo

A importância da aprendizagem do Inglês no 1.º Ciclo

Desde 2002 que a aprendizagem de duas línguas estrangeiras numa idade precoce faz parte das recomendações do Conselho Europeu para o desenvolvimento das competências linguísticas. Contribuiu para isso o reconhecimento de que a competência em mais do que uma língua impulsiona a vida profissional e assegura a integração social e o reconhecimento por parte de comunidades distintas do ponto de vista social e cultural daquelas com as quais nos identificamos.

Hi there!

School is about to start here in Portugal, so here's my little "back-to-school" treat :)

If you click on the pictures you'll get a PDF with both options, make sure you only print out the one you want.

Have a great school year and keep up the Teaching-Frenzy :)

Draw in English

Draw in English

Have some of your student finished a task way before the others?
Ask them to draw in English!
The only rule is: "You can only draw what you already know how to say in English". I don't ask them to write the words, but eventually they all end up doing that to prove to the teacher they DO know what they're drawing (even if they misspell it...Oops).

On the other hand, there might be a "Bruno" on a class somewhere who decides to draw a shark, because he's mad about sharks and he can really say the word SHARK with all his teeth ;). However, Bruno accidentally draws some seaweed on the bottom of the ocean as well...Oh, Oh... Well, he's just given you a great opportunity for some vocabulary work ;) Grab it!

Snakes and ladders - revision lesson

I love games! And so do my students. Before Carnival short holidays I've decided to let them play a bit. However, in order to play they had to "make" the game (yeah, no work, no fun... they know that, already ;) )
Each number on the snake corresponded to a question or command that the students had selected before playing. 
In each class I had different questions coming up. This is a great way to set up a revision lesson. 
Here's how it looked like in one of my classes:
