Comic Books about Daily Routines

Book Day was celebrated last 23rd April and, as every year, we decided to commemorate this special date in the English Corner Classroom. Students in level 4 were thinking about what they could do and finally they planned to create a comic book about their daily routines. Why not?

Poetry Day 2013

imagesWorld Poetry Day is on 21 March, and was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. The purpose of the day is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world.

World Poetry Day is an opportunity for children to be introduced to poetry in classrooms. It is a time when classrooms are busy with lessons related to poetry, in which students examine poets and learn about different types of poetry. This year, we decided to dedicate this day to Gloria Fuertes, a Spanish poet who wrote a great deal of poems for kids.

On this occasion we chose the poem  called “Los Reyes” because it has a vocabulary and a structure easy to understand and work with children: we started  translating and reciting the poem and finally each child wrote and illlustrated  a new verse to compose between all the pupils a different poem.

O Día da Poesía celébrase cada ano o 21 de marzo e foi declarado pola UNESCO no ano 1999 co propósito de promover a lectura, escritura, publicación e a ensinanza da poesía en todo o mundo.

O Día da Poesía é unha oportunidade única para introducir a poesía nas aulas. As clases están ocupadas con unidades relacionadas coa poesía nas que os alumnos examinas poemas e aprenden distintos tipos de poesía. Este ano, decidimos adicar esta data a Gloria Fuertes, unha poeta española que escribiu unha morea de poemas para nenos.

Nesta ocasión, eleximos un poema titulado “Os Reis” porque ten un vocabulario doado e unha estructura axeitada para traballar cos cativos: comezamos traducindo e recitando o poema para, finalmenente, compor entre todos un poema novo cos novos versos que cada rapaz escribiu e ilustrou.
