Songs as resource

Songs can be a great resource.

As an English teacher in the test I was able to introduce a song through listening, children may fill blank spaces.

It was in the class of 6 th grade.

Another day in paradise of the phil collins

She calls out to the man on the street
“Sir, can you … … … … …. Me?
It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep,
There Is You-Can somewhere tell me? ”

He walks on, Does not look back
I … … … … … … … I can not hear her
Starts to whistle as I crosses the street
Seems … … … … … … … … … … to be there

Oh think twice, it’s another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
I Can See She’s Been … … … … …
She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
Can not walk But she’s Trying

Oh think twice, it’s another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

Oh lord, There is nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, There Must Be something you can say

Can you tell from the lines on her face
You Can See That She’s been there
… … … … … … … … … .. Been Moved on from home and place
‘Cos She Did not fit in there

Oh think twice, it’s another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

ICT for English class III

There are many  interesting pages, but as teachers, we must not forget to make an exhaustive analysis of the material we are going to offer students.

In this case I show you, another interesting page, where we can find available resources organized according to different levels and subjects.

The link:

http://www.educa.madrid.org

In short, we need to innovate constantly and every day we have more and more pages and resources for English but of course we have to analyze all the information properly and decide whether it is useful or not at class.

 

ICT for English class II

Today I want to show two free online tools for the last years of primary schools: Voxy for school and English Attack, propose an alternative way for students to understand and speak English quickly and easily.
Games, social networking, movie trailers, entertainment and pop music are the protagonists of this interactive multimedia system, allowing a generation accustomed to audiovisual information to learn and improve English.

The logic and success of these innovative approaches are based on:

1) Listening to conversations in different contexts in order to students can develop Communication skills… in the same way a child learns the difference between “look at” or “look for” without a grammar book.

2) Teaching grammar induction,so that students can  understand/absorb the structure of the  sentence within a context and learn from their mistakes .

3) Using colloquial vocabulary and expressions to get a higher level of understanding.

ICT for English class

ICT for English lessons are very effective, there are many pages where we can find thousands of resources.English classes should not be stiff. They should be focused on real life and  these tools make it easier.All these resources are also motivational for students therefore they should have a protagonist use at English class.
