Why not?

Showing interest in an activity is especially important to get students attention and motivation about what they're supposed to do. Now, when I assign a project to my students in class, I do mine myself while they're doing theirs! So they don't only see our interest in the activity but they actually feel it by looking at the teacher working on a project just like they are! A simple attitude but a great result! Have a nice weekend, colleague!

Monica's Gang?

Yesterday I had a good surprise when I got at a newstand and found this comic book! Monica in English? Is it possible? Yes! Great for being used in class or even left in the waiting room on a nice table in order to have students curious about this new material in English! ; ) Have a great Sunday, colleague! See you soon!

Teaching Clock Times!

I've just found two great ways of practicing "Clock Times" with my students. If you have to teach this subject don't forget to take a look at http://www.teachingtime.co.uk/. I've just printed two of their activities: a simple board game (we all know students simply love them!), and also a very interesting activity called "My TV Guide", in which students are supposed to draw the start and finish times of their favorite programs including the day of the week those are shown on TV! Great!
