The alphabet & Personal pronouns [Back to basics]


Are you bored of teaching the alphabet as always. Why don't you teach the technological alphabet?




But if you want to hear it again for those in need: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fw3l1z9CUQ&feature=relmfu

Revise personal pronouns and possessive with your students. First, tell them to check similarities and differences among them. Then let them fill a grid with missing gaps.

I APABAL Convention "Energizing Teaching"

Summer break is over. We restarted the school year last Monday with the September teacher's board meeting and immediately afterwards, some of my students came to revise their contents in the September retakes. They were doing an extra effort during the summer completing some summer tasks and updating their pending ones.
If you are an universitarian, you may still have some shortly. To help you keep healthy and well-fed, we are giving you the basic recipe of Spaghetti Bolognese in our section #CatBásicas in the blog Cocinando con Catman.
In August, we have remembered Marilyn, Julia Child and the Notting Hill Carnival in London. In addition to these, and resting a bit, sunbathing and training at the gym, I have been preparing a short talk at the I APABAL Convention in Palma, "Energizing Teaching". I am part of a round table "Present Challenges for the English Language Teacher" where I will be modestly talking about  Creativity. I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as I have enjoyed it while preparing it.
