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.
Last week, we started the new project “Walk like Egyptians” in Level 6. We wrote down everything we know about Ancient Egypt and we realised we knew many things but….we’d like to learn more things about this old civilization. As everybody agreed Ancient Egyptians were really interesting and amazing …… Get on with it…..
Here you have an intro about our project…
My students are looking foward to seeing what I have prepared for them. So…What are you waiting for?
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.
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!!!!!!!
My favourite British person from the past is David Livingstone. He was a missionary,a doctor, an explorer and a famous discoverer.
This is his life timeline:
-David Livingstone was born in 1813 in Scotland.
-When he was a child, he studied in a school after working in a cotton mill* during 14 hours.
-In the mid 1830s, he studied at the University of Glasgow because he wanted to be a missionary and after that, he studied medicine in London.
-In 1840, he travelled to Africa and he started to explore this continent.
-In 1855, David Livingstone was the first European to see the Mosi-oa-Tunya waterfalls, which he renamed Victoria Falls.
-In 1866, Livingstone discovered the source** of the Nile River.During this journey, he was very ill- suffering cholera and he disappeared. Three years later, Henry Stanley found*** him.
-He never returned to England. He died of malaria in 1873 in Africa.
