Hi dears,

Here's a link to a an interesting website called AGENDAWEB.

There are many great resources to practice English. You can find cartoons, stories, fairy tales, listenings, grammar practice, etc for all levels. 

Today I suggest you visit the listening section. You can find all kinds of listening activities for elementary level (5è and 6è, but also 3r and 4t if you try). I hope you practice some to improve your English.

School Closure Update 12 - KOALATEXT free self-learning site

Hi there! Today I want to show you a self-learning tool I love.

It's called KOALATEXT. It's a project we sometimes use at school in small groups, for self-learning.
There are usually some free activities and the rest can be accessed through a subscription, but since the school closure they are open and free for everybody. It's a safe, ad free website.
Go to koalatext.com and you will see this:


Click on STUDENTS and you will have the option of choosing your level. These levels are just a suggestion. Since it's a self-learning site, you can choose a higher or lower level if your age/grade seem too difficult or too easy, no problem!



Once you choose a level, you'll have all the contents for that level.



There are many activities: listenings, readings, grammar, games, vocabulary... Remember, these are only suggestions, nothing is compulsory, it's just ways to use your time to learn and keep practicing the things you already know.

I hope you like it, keep safe and be happy!

School Closure Update 11 - KAHOOT games for the whole family!

Hi children,

Benvolguts,
Des de Jumping Ducks desitgem que malgrat les difícils circumstàncies l’aprenentatge no s’aturi i per aquest motiu hem pensat que ens encantaria oferir-vos els nostres tallers de teatre musical, en format online i de forma totalment gratuïta. Practicarem anglès, cantarem i ballarem, aprenent una senzilla coreografia de forma interactiva. Us animem a que participeu sols o bé en família, i a que compartiu aquesta activitat amb la vostra comunitat educativa, ja que serà una sessió  molt motivadora i que tothom pot fer al menjador o a la sala d’estar.

Gaudiu dels Tallers de Teatre Musical en anglès per aprendre i divertir-se alhora des de casa i en família amb @jumpingducks a Instagram

A més, podreu participar fent-nos preguntes i suggeriments, continuar perfeccionant el què heu après i enviar-nos els resultats i fer-vos un vídeo final. Us proposem les etiquetes: #AprenentACasa, #Claustrodeig, #JoActuo, #totanirabe, #joemquedoacasa...i evidentment @laVostraEscola!

Mestres, alumnes, mares i pares! Us esperem a tots al nostre instagram el proper Dijous 2 d’abril a les 11hs per a disfrutar plegats!

El vídeo serà gravat i us el podreu descarregar quan vulgueu!
