Live or leave


In  the previous class we discussed that YOU are in the epicentre this year! So let's talk about... you!
 What do you want the team to know about you?
What are your hobbies, favourite bands, songs, holiday places, cartoon heroes, or anything else you want to share.
YOU chose how to present yourself in a FUN way! Here are a few ideas and of course you are free to use any other way you want!
  1. Create a Pinterest board with 10 pins that summarize them.
  2. Create a 30 second podcast that introduces themselves. Then you can present them or play them on separate devices in class as an audio gallery.
  3. Write a blog post in the classroom blog  introducing yourself to the rest of the classroom.
  4. Create a quick comic strip to describe yourself or to recreate a recent funny moment in your life.
  5. Create a word cloud to describe yourself and share with the rest of the class.
  6. Create your own Voki avatar that introduces yourself to the class. It's going to be even funnier when you are creative with the backgrounds, characters and details of the avatar to reflect your own personality and preferences.
  7. Create a graffiti online  that speaks to your interests and personality and share with the class.
  8. Create mashup videos of yourself with Weavly to introduce their interests to the class.
  9. Create a Google map of 5 places you have visited and share with the class
  10. Research your birth date in history and share interesting events with the class.

Hi everyone.
What does this mean?
Well, it means a lot of different things:
-We'll be covering our individual needs. Here's an online test to find out what your 
own learning channels are!
-We'll be learning in each one's own pace.
-We will be responsible for our own learning, progress and success!
-We will get to recognise and develop our character strengths so as to become happier more successful people 
The teachers will be our facilitators, there to encourage and guide each and everyone of us to reach our full potential!

This year we are going to FLIP OUR CLASSROOM!
What does it mean?
It means that instead of the teacher lecturing you with things you may already know, we'll be using this blog to studyAT HOME BEFORE we come in class.
We'll also be doing some initial exercises at home to check our understanding.
In this way our class time can be used much more effectively to PRACTICE what we've learnt
in a fun way, instead of old, boring repetition of teacher staff!!!

So here comes our first aim: REVISION of PRESENT TENSES!
Watch these tutorials and THEN do the activities in the handouts given to you in class.
Note down anything that is a challenge to you so that we can discuss it in class.

Now, you are ready to go on with the hanout you were given in class.
Practise online here 

We want to have fun while learning, so we are also going to listen to the songs you chose.
If you want your songs to be heard, write a list of your favourite ones as a conment to this post.

Here's the first one of a band I like a lot. Let's sing it together!
