April Fool's Day Fun

"…it is now clear to me that anticipation of pleasure is the key to all learning… Environments that include pleasure, movement and creativity are truly the most successful for learning" Candace Pert

I really believe in above words and we teachers should provide some pleasure connected with learning during our lessons. 
On April Fool's Day ( in Poland it's 1st April) I prepared a lesson based on a short film which is typical hidden camera humour. The film is so funny because children play the main role.

The story of Easter

I think it's good to plan something special for lessons on the last days before Easter break.
Some time ago I found interesting series about life of Jesus

Saint Patrick's Day with QR Codes

Ireland is one of the English-speaking countries.  In Ireland there is a special day when people celebrate their patron saint. It's 17th March - the St. Patrick's Day.
I have decided to use QR codes to create a quiz about this day for my students.

Verb "have got" with Shrek

For sure, "Shrek" is one of the best known films for children and teenagers. A story of a green ogre who loves the solitude in his swamp, a funny donkey and a beautiful princess.

Are you a SUPERGIRL?

In the prevoius post I  uploaded a comprehension reading task about Women's Day.
But today I thought about adding some music to my lesson to make it less formal and pleasant.
Most of my students enjoy doing songs.
I found a nice song to use with students on the occasion of International Women's Day for example.
I really recommend this song by Reamonn - German rock band.

Worksheet to the song :   supergirl.englishbyann.pdf   Enjoy!

It's time for Spring Clean !

    On the cusp of winter and spring people usually do some cleaning in their houses and gardens.
It's a nice topic for our students who help their parents.
Watch how Mr Bean is dealing with his duties and revise PRESENT CONTINUOUS TENSE 

Do the task : presentcontinuouswithmrbean.englishbyann.pdf

What are your plans for spring clean this year?

Good luck with your cleaning !

International Women's Day

As the Women's Day in Poland is coming closer I have decided to write this post earlier.
I'm going to use my reading worksheet at the end of this week, because in Poland Women's Day is celebrated on 8th March.  ---> womensday.englishbyann.pdf
You should remember about the importance of the Women's Day all over the world.
Thanks to many "battles" women had throughout the history, now we are free, have the right to vote and are equal to men  (at least in Europe). But it was not always like that.
We should be proud we are women!

"You can do almost anything you put your mind to. You can swim the deepest ocean and climb the highest peak. Be a doctor or fly a plane. You can face adversity and still walk tall. You are strong, beautiful, compassionate and much more than words could ever say! "

Happy Women’s Day!
