Emozioni: kit didattico con emoticons - Jack Potato Lo spunto per la creazione del lavoro di oggi lo devo ad un testo che ho acquistato per le mie figlie l’anno scorso, “EMOZIONARIO – dimmi cosa senti – della Nord-Sud edizioni” perché come mamma e maestra spesso affronto il delicato e complesso tema delle emozioni. Scoprire, identificare e differenziare le emozioni come suggerisce questo EMOZIONARIO è un sistema per educare i piccoli in modo che provino le loro emozioni senza turbamenti, perché scoprano se stessi e possano diventare adulti consapevoli e strutturati per affrontare le sfide della vita. Ho pensato ad un pacchetto, un kit didattico per introdurre il lessico anche in inglese e viverlo quotidianamente in classe, insieme alle altre strutture del classroom language. Come ormai saprai, ho tre quinte e i miei alunni conoscono bene i simboli degli emoticons, li trovo immediati e facili da ricordare. Nella sezione download – schede didattiche – classroom language troverai:

Storytelling Prompts for Kids - Tell Me A Story Time for the Virtual Chapter Book Club for Kids. The theme for November is Fairy Tales, Fables and Fractured Fairy Tales. My daughters have actually been reading quite a few fairy tale chapter books lately. There is something about fairy tales and fables that is always appealing to children. My youngest daughter came across the book “Clemency Pogue, Fairy Killer” by JT Petty and illustrated by Will Davis. Storytelling plays an important part in the book, Clemency’s family likes to sit around telling stories. When Clemency is attacked by an evil fairy, she remembers the tale of Peter Pan, as her father had told her one evening. Tell Me A Story – Storytelling Prompts for Kids First, print off the storytelling prompts. tell me a story – storytelling prompt.doc Next, cut out the prompts, fold them and place them inside a jar or bag. Finally, find some time to sit down with your family and have each person pull a prompt from the jar. what did you see? We would love for you to participate too.

Attività sul verbo avere - Jack Potato Oggi vi propongo una scheda didattica per la costruzione di brevi frasi con il verbo avere. Ovviamente tale attività andrà proposta solo al termine di un percorso più completo, sviluppato a partire dall’oralità. Sono numerosi i giochi che si possono realizzare sul verbo avere, a partire dai materiali posseduti dagli alunni stessi. Io, per esempio, ho proposto moltissime attività orali. Eccone alcune: L’insegnante mostra una serie di oggetti e gli alunni, per alzata di mano, devono formulare semplici frasi ( I have goto a red pen, I have got a blue and purple pencil case…).Catena domanda e risposta: comincia l’insegnante a porre una semplice domanda (Luigi, have you got a red pen?) Inizialmente ho introdotto solo le prime due persone e la forma affermativa, per passare poi gradualmente alle forme negativa e interrogativa e alle altre persone. E tu? Puoi trovare la scheda sul verbo avere nella sezione SCHEDE DIDATTICHE, categoria GRAMMAR. Forse potrebbero interessarti anche:

Copioni teatrali per bambini in lingua inglese per la scuola primaria A teatro si recita. Solo quando gli alunni hanno memorizzato la parte verbale, iniziate le prove in teatro. Ogni alunno deve decidere con quali gesti accompagnare le sue parole e si concentrerà sul tono della voce che deve essere molto forte e più lento del solito. Se si recita in inglese infatti bisogna accompagnare le frasi con gesti MOLTO eloquenti e dare il tempo al pubblico di capire. Date anche la regola dei piedi: i piedi degli attori devono puntare al pubblico: in questo modo non gli darano mai le spalle. Il busto invece si può girare per seguire chi sta parlando in quel momento, dando così l'impressione di una recita meno ingessata e più dinamica. Altro trucco: quando i bambini sono in scena trovate un posto in cui dirigere e suggerire. Soprattutto SORRIDETE! E come mi dispiace non poter mostrare le foto dei loro sorrisi.
