MOTHER´S DAY


Mothers’ Day Gift ‘A box filled with love’. After showing the children a special wrapped box (mini smartie box) tied with ribbon we say that there is something very special inside. Can they guess? There is a poem attached – You never can unwrap it. Please leave the ribbon tied. Just hold the box close to you, It’s filled with love inside. Bring out the filled smartie boxes & shake. Oh dear there is a problem – they should be empty! What shall we do? (love their reactions). After eating the contents they put their ‘love’ inside the empty box (again this is lovely to see – some blow inside, others take handfuls of ‘fresh air’ out of their mouths). Quickly close the box & wrap. We’ve found that pre-cut adhesive ‘wrappers’ are best. We were lucky enough to be given iridescent silvery sticky backed paper which was ideal as the children ‘rolled’ their boxes over the paper & it stuck. We used the ribbon that comes with the bows you find at Christmas. Attach the poem.

PRESENT CONTINUOUS SONG

This easy song will help your ESL student fix the structure of the present continuous. I assure you your ESO pupils will love singing it as in a competition. You just have to set the rules: Boys vs Girls, dividing the class into groups... it really works!

BE MY VALENTINE



Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the English-speaking countries, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of 'valentines'." - Wikipedia


Now you can listen to the lovely story behind this cute song...
