Mitt Flippade Klassrum

Jag tänkte berätta om en uppgift som jag bestämt ska vara uppstarten på varje SO-lektion det kommande året. Jag har valt att döpa den till bilddagboken. Syftet med denna uppgift är: 1. Att starta upp lektionen på samma sätt varje gång. 2. 3. 4. Så, vad innebär då denna bilddagbok? Frågorna som stod på tavlan och som eleverna skulle besvara skriftligt var: * Vad tänker du på när du ser bilden? * Vilken är din dröm? * Hur ska du göra för att nå din dröm/dina drömmar? Först skriver eleverna av dagens datum och sedan skriver de ner frågorna i sin bilddagbok. Efter att fem minuter hade gått, avslutade de sina texter. Dagens Fröken Flipp-tips är således oavsett hur du väljer att starta dina lektioner, se till att du har ett tydligt syfte med din uppstart. Så hur startar du dina lektioner? Det här är morgondagens bild i bilddagboken.

#BBCtrending: Kid President wants to make the world more awesome

That's why the 11-year-old YouTube star says he makes his videos. Robby Novak released his first video in 2012, and since then his videos have attracted a huge following thanks to the mix of humour and inspirational thinking. "Something that somebody can do to be awesome is treat people like it's their birthday every day," he says. Bits of wisdom like this are the result of collaboration between Robby and his brother-in-law, Brad Montague, who came up with the idea for the series. "Robby and I have always made stuff together as a family and Kid President grew out of this project we were wanting to do to help position kids as leaders," Brad says.

Their latest project is a book called Kid President's Guide to Being Awesome. "I don't stop even when I'm broken," Robby says. Blog by Ashley Semler. BBC Learning English. Teacher talk - Building and retaining vocabulary. BBC Learning English - The Sounds of English. GÖR ERT EGNA #TALASOMTED.

When I started teaching the English alphabet I was really sure that it will be fun and easy to achieve.

Alphabet - audio-lingual method

My students had no problem learning the alphabet itself, but when they should have used it, they were making a lot of mistakes. I have tried everything. We tried using finger alphabet, some information gap exercises where spelling was necessary and so on. However, all these activities had very poor results. Seeing my failure I decided to create an audio-lingual computer based activity.
