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.
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.

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.
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!!!!!!!

Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) is celebrated in Mexico between October 31st and November 2nd. The celebration is designed to honor the dead* who, it is believed**, return to their homes on Halloween.
The Day of the Dead has its origins from pre-Hispanic civilizations from 2,500 to 3,000 years ago, before the Spanish conquered Mexico. That celebration took place*** in the 9th month of the Aztec calendar and lasted the whole month.
Traditionally, November 1 is the day for honoring dead children and infants, and November 2 is the day for honoring deceased adults.
It’s a festive and colourful holiday. Many families construct an altar to the dead in their homes to honor deceased relatives**** and decorate it with sweets, flowers, photographs, deceased’s favorite foods and drinks, and fresh water.
Families clean the graves***** of their deceased relatives and decorate them with flowers, photos, candles, foods and drinks. People are all night in the cementeries, telling funny stories about their dead ancestors or playing the favorite songs of the dead.
Catrinas dolls are the most popular symbol of The Day of the Dead in Mexico. They are tall and thin skelletons dressed up in beautiful clothes and decorated with flowers.They were created by a Mexican artist called Jose Guadalupe Posada.
