Inglés para niños: JOLLY PHONICS Jolly Phonics el el sistema por el que se trabaja la lectura y la escritura en Reino Unido. Es un método que resulta muy divertido para trabajar las letras y sus sonidos en inglés, tanto para los profesores como para los niños. Se trata de un método fonético sintético que enseña a los niños y niñas de manera multisensorial: a través de imagen, movimiento y sonido. Enseña a los niños y niñas a utilizar el código alfabético básico para el comienzo de la lectura y la escritura. Como vemos, todo beneficios, siendo un método muy innovador en comparación con el método tradicional llamado método global, también conocido como "Look and Say", en el que los niños y niñas aprender a leer palabras completas (en España esto lo hacemos actualmente, enseñándoles una flashcard con una palabra completa que deben memorizar y reconocer de forma visual posteriormente en un ejercicio, por ejemplo). Se empieza enseñando las letras aisladas y el sonido que cada letra representa.

Starfall: Learn to Read with Phonics, Learn Mathematics BATTLESHIP: IRREGULAR VERBS Much to learn, you still have. – Joda. Despite the evidence that the number of irregular verbs is declining in the English language, there is no danger they will disappear, and the struggle will continue. There are many attempts to find a shortcut in learning irregular verbs, yet with all the options and “magic tricks” available, learning these verbs requires much memorization, drilling and practice. Today I will show how I use the Battleship game to drill and practise irregular verbs in a fun way. Before the game: Each player will need two 10×10 grids – one with irregular verbs in each square, and one blank grid. Click the Grids to download them. The players then mark where they want to place their ships by circling rows, horizontally or vertically. Each player’s fleet consists of the following ships: 1 aircraft carrier – 5 squares 1 battleship – 4 squares 1 cruiser – 3 squares 2 destroyers – 2 squares each 2 submarines – 1 square each How to play: some more games with irregular verbs from Engames.

Diversity in the Classroom - An Article by Michael Soon Lee, MBA, CSP Teachers must be aware of the fact that there are different learning styles among students in the classroom. However, we may believe that most people are comfortable with the primary mode of communicating in America that is primarily verbal. This could be a fatal mistake, especially when speaking to groups composed of a significant number of people from diverse cultures. First, let’s examine the four basic learning styles. In the United State, most keynote speeches and seminars are presented primarily aurally which is probably why we are known as professional “speakers”. However, only 30% of all audiences favor the auditory learning style. Studies show that 30% of people prefer learning kinesthetically where hands-on experience helps make the learning stick. What does culture have to do with learning style? A question that many speakers often ask is whether keynoters can present in a multimodal format without detracting from their presentations.

Phonemic Awareness - Pre Reading Skills - Reading Skills Pyramid Phonemic awareness is the understanding that words are made up of sounds which can be put together in different ways to make different words. Simply put, phonemic awareness is the moment a child realizes that if the "b" in "bat" is changed to a "c", then the word becomes "cat." Phonemic awareness is a critical pre-reading skill which is often overlooked. And while each child is different, most learn to read following a similar sequence. Many are able to continue with no trouble when steps are missed, but others may have difficulty later because they didn't make the connection. Learning to read should be an exciting time, and with Time4Learning, it can be. For more information, check out our curriculum demos or early reading lesson plans for kindergarten, first, and second grade. Phonemic Awareness Is Often Confused With Phonological Awareness Phonemic awareness is often mistaken for phonological awareness, which is the ability to distinguish sounds from one another.

Diversity Activities for Youth & Adults | The Classroom Team-building games are a fun way for youths and adults to deepen their understanding of cultural diversity. Team-building diversity games also can help participants appreciate the advantages that result when people with a variety of skill sets and personalities work together to get something done. Be prepared to follow each activity with a provocative group discussion -- or hire an experienced team-building facilitator to tailor a program to your specific needs. Hello in Different Languages Challenge your group to say "Hello" in as many different languages as they can.
