New school year, new fresh ideas

School year started some weeks ago and we have been working so hard designing and developing an easy game for the first levels in order to check what students can remember. They loved it and it was a funny initial evaluation.

This strategy of initial evaluation helped me determinate the level of my pupils in the first courses of Primary Education without anyone noticing that they were under evaluation and let me know how is the previous level in order to build up a didactic plan about what should be the planification of the curricular elements for the students.

We used a dice, a set of flash cards, a set of question cards and a set of instruction cards.

I’m sure that we’ll use it more times troughout this academic year!!!!

Check out how these children enjoy it!

Mingle game is a fun way to practise the question “How old are you?” with little kids.

Children have to mingle together and when the chant finishes everybody asks a kid How old are you? . The child responds and everybody has to get into groups of that number and sit down.Take a look at this video.

Let’s count from 1 to 10

Seven Steps is a simple counting song for young children. You can use it to count objects, march around the room, or just sing and clap.

This is my children’s favourite song to learn numbers. They love it! And you might add  a few more actions to make it funnier !!!!!


Here is a picture of a number. For example, the number ‘1’. How do you spell this number? It’s o-n-e. Can you hit o, n and e on the balloons as they go past? You must hit them in the right order!
Remember – you have three lives for each number!

Neste xogo aparecen debuxos de números. Por exemplo o número 1. Sabes deletrear este número en inglés? Podes disparar  os globos cando pasen para escoller as letras que necesitas? Recorda que tes que explotar os globos na orde correcta. E sobre todo non te esquezas de que só tes tres vidas para cada número.
