Hi everyone,

In the following website you can enter a text and the app will convert your written words into an MP3 audio file. This might be very useful in class if you are planning a bingo or any kind of listening activity. The quality of the voices is the best I’ve found in any online programme. I hope you give it a good use!

Our Greenhouse!

Hiya

Here are some photos that I took last Friday of 4A and 4B at our garden. Norberto’s mother donated a sunflower to the greenhouse project so we went down to plant it.
Thanks a lot! We had a great time!

Revising Tenses!

Posted: May 15, 2014 in REVISION ACTIVITIES

Hello mates,
This week 5th graders are still working on present perfect. Although it is one of the easiest verbal tense, students need to improve the structure and the past participle of the verbs.
This time they enjoyed a ppt document with the explanation, some examples and exercises. As they are still young, I jumped details like the adverbs yet, already, ever, never.
Here you are the link.
I hope you like it.
