This year kids had an amazing winter celebration. They worked really hard to make this plastic cup snowman. In its cups there are snowmen made of balls for table tennis. They gave all the little snowmen to future students and invited them to join our school, learn English and have fun. We were listening to music while making it. One of the students was playing the piano. The joy they felt cannot be explained by words.
Learning is a process during which we extend our knowledge, but we shouldn’t forget to have fun. Having fun while learning is mandatory in our classroom.
So, meet our friend Bill. Bill can be both happy and angry. He can have either big or small teeth. He can either smile or shout. Start you own story and make your own friend. Revise emotions, body parts, colours or adjectives
Here’s one activity from additional classes in the fourth grade.
Activity: Students get a task to listen carefully to a description of a creature. They have to draw what they hear. After they finish drawing, students have to make a story and „bring their creature to life“.
Result: Besides having fun, students revise parts of the body, shapes, colours, present tense and vocabulary. They end up laughing at their creatures and stories not realising that they are making comparisons and still working on their English.
