Recycling our English

Board games may be old school but they are great for kids for different reasons. They’re still a super-fun way to teach kids about following rules, taking turns, counting spaces, and accepting rewards and consequences.

In addition, board games offer interactive English language practice in a learner-centered, low-stress environment.

I have designed two easy board games for Level 5 and Level 6 that require the students to produce certain types of expressions, so they practice a variety of vocabulary, grammatical patterns, and functional meanings.

Here you have a ppt about the rules of these board games.


I am sure students will enjoy reviewing and recycling their knowledge of English with these board games.

Say “Hello!”

Say “Hello!” to classmates, parents, and friends  with this original hello song from Super Simple Songs.

Saúda aos teus compañeiros, aos teus pais e amigos con esta orixinal canción .

This super simple goodbye song is great for ending any class or play session. It’s very easy to sing along with and learn through gestures, and it ends with 45 seconds of instrumental music to play as children leave the classroom.

Endangered animals first presentations

Today. two children from Level 6 showed us what they had found out about their favourite endangered animals. They prepared a Powerpoint presentation to illustrate their oral presentation. Congratulations…Good job!!!

Hoxe, dúas alumnas de 6º  realizaron unha exposición oral do que averiguaran sobre os seus animais favoritos que, por desgracia, están en perigo de extinción. Para elo, prepararon unha presentación Powerpoint que lles serviu para ilustrar todo o que nos querían contar.


At first, they were afraid of not doing a good job, but little by little, they gained confidence and, finally, they  enjoyed the activity.As always, this type of activity also allowed us to check, learn and improve.

Ao comezo, tiñan moito medo de non facelo ben pero, pouco a pouco, comenzaron a gañar confianza e, finalmente, gozaron da actividade. E, coma sempre, este tipo de actividade axúdanos a revisar o que fixemos, aprender e , sobre todo, mellorar.

We are looking foward to enjoying the other classmates’ presentations.

Estamos desexando ver as seguintes presentacións.

Endangered animals

Do you know that there are many endangered animals all over the world? What’s that?


Endangered animals are animals in danger of extinction. An animal is considered endangered  when there are very few of them alive.

In the history of our planet lots of cretaures have disappeared, such as dinosaurs. During the age of dinosaurs, only 1 species became extinct, but, nowadays, the problem is much more worrisome because the number of endangered animals is closer to 40,000 species per year.

Most of the extinctions are caused by people, due to indiscriminated hunting or  environmental destruction. If you want to know more about the different causes of animals extinction, click on the picture. 2016-01-17_1302

The more we know about this problem, the more we can do to save the endangered animals.

And if you want to know more about the reasons these animals are in danger, here you have a fun and easy way to learn more about them.


Why don’t we prepare an illustrated endangered animals encyclopedia? I’m sure that it will be an amazing activity. So that, take a look at this website and choose your favourite endangered animal. Take notes on the most relevant information such as, name, adult size and weigth, habitat, food, the reasons why it is in danger of extinction…..Click on the link below and start working!!!!!!!


I’m looking foward to seeing your work!!!!!
