Hello everyone! After a little chat about whatever the kids wanted to share we started with our Pracovni sesit right away. First we review Lesson 1 and then we started new one. We worked on page 4, learning meaning of new words, and how they are composed from other words (telo + cvicit … telocvicna). Then we wrote them to understand proper spelling.
We took a brake outside today to enjoy the crisp Autumn weather, running around playing some games.
Next was book, page 8. This time we were reading article and translating it. We also talked about different rooms at school, what we do there and how different they are from schools in the USA.
Calm down time belonged to a short guided meditation.
Children had a chance to discuss and vote which song we will sing at the Christmas concert. We made a decision and practiced Clupaty kaktus some more. Earlier in the day we were listening a Christmas carol Pujdem spolu do Betlema taking about its animation and understanding what it is about.
We played a short game with numbers.
In last few minutes we enjoyed video Mach a Sebestova which made everyone laugh.
Home work: read page 9 in the book (do skoly, ze skoly) and make sure you know all the words of our song Chlupaty kaktus.
May you all enjoy this beautiful weather and we should meet in one week again.
v sobotu jsme meli spolecny workshop, kde si deti vyrobily z ponozek lichozrouta. myslim, ze se to detem i rodicum libilo.
ukol zustava stejny – deti maji v deskach basnicku o zviratku, kterou by se mely doma ucit. a pisnicku “ovcaci ctveraci”.
krasny tyden a navidenou v sobotu,
Sobotnajsiu hodinu sme zacali fotenim sa v maskach, po presunuti sa do triedy sme si precvicovali slabikovanie, vytlieskavanie slabik, pisanie aj citanie, precvicovali sme si antonyma a zahrali si pexeso a samozrejme zaspievali si hymnu. Nakoniec sme si urobili milu selfie v maskach. Boli sme zas raz ako usilovne vcielky.
hodinu jsme zahajili predstavenim nasich masek a obleku. vsem detem to moc sluselo. nikdo z deti ve tride nechodi do kostela, takze muj kostym jeptisky vubec nechapaly:)
povedela jsem detem o slavnostech ke stu let zalozeni ceskoslovenska a pustila jim kratke video. darinka mela ve tride dedecka, ktery nam vypravel pribeh z jeho mladi v ceskoslovensku.
v pracovnim sesite jsme vypracovali stranky 35 – 37.
v pristi hodine zacneme lekci c. 5 – moje rodina. prosim at deti opet prinesou jedno rodinne foto.
cvicime novou pisnicku – ovcaci, ctveraci. basnicka o slunecnici detem docela uz jde. deti maji novou kratkou basnicku v deskach, kterou by mely doma cvicit. kazdy si vybral jedno zviratko a ja jim nasla kratkou basnicku, kterou nam prednesou na vanocni besidce.
vyucovani jsme zakoncili vyrobou krocanu z papiru a hranim ceskeho pexesa.
deti mi rekly, ze uz maji hodne domacich ukolu z normalni skoly:), takze krome basnicek a zpivani pisnicky je tentokrat vice zatezovat nebudu. byla bych ale rada, kdyby si doma zopakovali v ucebnici lekci c. 4.
na pristi hodinu prosim prineste stare ponozky.
krasneho halloweena a cely tyden preje,
Hello everyone. it was very nice to meet in costumes today and have a fun and to chat a little before we started learning.
In class each child introduced their character.
Today’s subject was first and last name and how they vary according to the gender. (-ova’). In the book we did pages 6 and 7.
To move around a little we played a game Kuba rekl. Children were doing different exercises.
Next was talking about Christmas Carols and their Czech tradition. Children seem to understand our heritage very well. Then it was up to me to do a singing performance since my iPad refused to work with me today. Next time we will make a decision what to sing at the Christmas concert. The children will choose between Pujdem spolu do Betlema and Chlupaty kaktus. They also will have an option to learn a short poem Vanocni stromecek and perform that at the concert.
Meditation is a wonderful tool to calm children’s mind. I was very impressed with some.
In Pracovni sesit, page 7 children had to ask their friends to write down their answers and we played some more with last names.
At the end of the class I talked to each child personally. For most it was how good job they did. Only for some to remind them why they come to this class.
As a little trick or treat everyone could choose europium Merci chocolate .
I had a great day with your kids today, will look forward next Saturday.
No homework today but, please, bring those ‘lonely’ socks if you did not yet. We will have a creative day next Saturday.
Thank you, Marta Ferjak
