Hello, my dear colleagues!
Recently I began to use English proverbs and idioms as warmers. Before opening our coursebooks I write a proverb on the board and then we discuss what the meaning can be.
Hi, I want to share one working with my 5th graders. My students work together and they find famous quotes. Their misson is: Finding the quotes, and decorate it!
We see and read lots of quotes here and there. How often do we use them in the class? Not often, I guess. But there are many ways that we can integrate them into our teaching. Here are some of them:
"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea" Antoine de Saint Exupery
