Teacher's love

Because love should be the strength that moves us when teaching our students. And because sharing keeps us moving to reach them... Here you can find ressources I make for teaching English, mainly to children.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle

Kita

This is a very good story to teach days of the week or to introduce food.

I adapted the story, because the original would be too hard for my little students (I changed some language and changed some food items). I told them the story and then made a puppets play which was seen by the parents at the end of the year. The students built their own puppets for the story and had lots of fun.

 

I was the narrator of the puppets play, but it can also be a student.

 

After telling the story there are many activities you can make with your students. If you want some ideas, the following webpages are very helpful: DLTK and Teachingheart.

 

This is the text for the puppets play I performed with my students.

The influence of English in the Portuguese language

Kita

These are some words that we use in Portuguese, which come from the English language. This is useful to show the students that some words we use are similar or even the same as the ones English people use.

 

The teacher should cut or fold the last part of the worksheet, where the words are written in English, so that the students don't see them before doing the exercise. Then the students should write the words they see in the pictures in Portuguese and then compare with the same words written in English (they will see that there are many similarities).
