Today in class we reviewed chapters 5-8, and then took a test over what we learned in those chapters. After we finished the test, we did a short activity with drawing and then explaining a cartoon we made.


Today was our first day of class since winter holiday, so first we wrote down three of our favorite moments from the break and shared them with the class. We started unit 8 with practice giving descriptive clues about rooms or places for the other students to guess. Then we worked on the differences between some-/any-/no- with -thing/-one/-where with a short quiz that we raced to finish. In the second half of class, we finished unit 8 with a group exercise on pg 53 working on conversation phrases. Finally, we discussed the topic of flying machines on pg 53 and interviewed each other about the section we read using the questions on pg 54.


Homework: read the notes, and then complete the two short exercises practicing some-/any-/no- with -thing/-one/-where.



Today in class we had our Christmas party! We first wrote down some scrambled words to listen for and unscramble while we watched the film "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". Afterwards, we reviewed the new vocabulary from the film, and then talked about the plot and the meaning. During the film we enjoyed popcorn and biscuits, AND we also traded in our tickets for prizes! :) At At the end of class, we played a game with guessing and "giving" each other the present we thought each person would want the most for Christmas.

Have a good holiday!


Today in class we practiced with asking and answering lots of questions! At the beginning, we wrote questions using what/who....with/when/where/how, and then interviewed others in the class and wrote down their responses. Then we worked in teams at the board and raced to fix mistakes in questions. In the second half of class we did an exercise on page 47 for revision. Lastly, we incorporated the subject of travel and tradition in different countries, and practiced describing different places, and took a quick quiz about Christmas traditions around the world.

Homework: Write a letter to Santa Claus, asking what you want for Christmas this year.


Today in class we focused on the theme of Christmas. We worked as a class to think of some Christmas vocabulary to talk about the holiday, and then we did an art project to make the classroom feel more festive :) We traced our hands and cut them out, and wrote one thing that reminds us of Christmas on each finger. At the end of class, we listened the the Christmas carol "Let it Snow" and looked at the lyrics. Then we had fun working in groups to act out the song to each other.

Homework: Take a verse (four lines) and change at least one word in each line to give the song a different meaning :)


Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!




Today in class we talked about many kinds of jobs, and narrowed down our list to have “job interviews”, where each team picked a job they were hiring for, and then interviewed the other team to select the best candidate. We practiced asking and answering questions in different situations, and also practiced coming up with responses spontaneously, which was fun. We did some speed reading on pg 44 about work laws for under-18’s in different countries, and had to answer on the board as quickly as possible. At the end of class, we looked at how we did on the unit test two weeks ago, and asked a few questions about what we did well on and what we want to improve.


Today we talked about this week´s holiday, called Thanksgiving. We learned new vocabulary connected with the topic and played various games such as The Vocabulary Hunt to revise it. We also watched a story about the history of Thanksgiving and practised speaking skills talking about it. In the end, we went through a reading passage where our task was to fill in the missing words. We had to put together the cut-up pieces of the story as well.

New vocabulary: wreath/Native Americans/settlers/pilgrims/cranberries/hunting/Mayflower/cornucopia/acorn


Today in class we wrote down 5 things we remember doing in class so far this year, and then took a small test to see how much we remember what we worked on in Units 1-4 of the textbook. In the second half of class, we did a spelling race to review how to spell verbs in the past tense. At the end, we read about the Black Death and the Great Fire, and had a competition with memorizing facts and dates. We also gave short presentations in groups about a historical event of our choice.

Homework: write 5-6 sentences about a historical event of your choice, including what the event was called, when and where it happened, and some things that happened during this event.


*Miss Hannah will be gone next week, so you will be with Miss Adela! :)


Today in class we did a series of competitions in small teams to practice everything we've learned so far and prepare for the Unit 1-4 quiz next class. We went over cooking, sports and music vocabulary, the present simple and continuous, adverbs of frequency and time phrases, making questions, and also a bit of speaking practice.
Homework: review the first four units of the textbook :)



Today in class we focused on the theme of Halloween, since the holiday is today! First we raced to think of as many words related to Halloween, and then watched a clip from a Halloween movie and tried to recognize and name as many things as we could. Then we competed to brainstorm items for different categories (monsters, costumes, candy, etc) and won stickers and candy for doing well, since today is also Treat Day! We talked about typical activities, events, and things related to the holiday, and what we would dress up as if we went trick-or-treating. We played an acting/explaining game to get others on our team to guess the secret word. In the end, we talked about “what we could/should/might do if…..” for different spooky situations.


Today in class we reviewed the culture section about festivals, and talked a little bit about what we'll be doing in class next week for Halloween! We did some activities and games practicing how to explain words and ideas when we don't remember the word in English, and also learned some new phrases to use. Near the end of class we talked a little bit about logos on pg 31-32, and our homework project. 

Homework: design a logo for ourselves, using some of the ideas and things to think about written on pg 32.


Today we talked about different types of music. We listened to samples from rock, jazz, rap, pop, soul, and classical music, and then shared our opinions with the class, using the phrases "I love/like/dislike/hate listening to _____". We arranged these kinds of phrases from the most positive (really love) to the most negative (really hate) and used them to describe how we feel about different activities on pg 23. We had a spelling competition with regular and irregular "+ing" verbs, and also acted out some of the new verb phrases we learned on pg 25 to remember them. In the end, we read a bit about festivals in other countries on pg 21, and compared what each event is like.

Homework: choose a festival that happens in the Czech Republic, and think about: What's it called? When does it happen? What do the people wear? What do the people do? What do the people eat? If you can't think of any interesting Czech festivals, think up your own :)


Today we wrote recipes in groups for how to make a cake, and compared our directions to a funny video. We listened to someone give us directions about how to make pancakes on page 18, and practiced using some vocabulary and verbs to talk about how to prepare food. We practiced using the present continuous on page 19 to talk about things that are happening at the moment, and did a team game to remember when to use the present simple or present continuous.

In the second part of class, we played a guessing race with new vocabulary, which became pretty exciting : ) After that, we read and shared about other kids’ eating habits on page 20 in groups, and as a mini-project we made a “daily menu” for the person we read about.

Homework: write a daily menu for yourself (some foods you always or usually eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert) and also include some things you NEVER eat, or only sometimes.


Today in class we talked about sports and games, and which ones we use with the verb "play" or "go". We read about some unusual sports, and also listened to other people describe unusual sports. We learned some vocabulary about sports and equipment. In the second half of class, we talked about how often we play sports and do other activities: always, often, usually, sometimes, never. 

The homework is on page 17:#7, fill in the missing words in the sentences, and #9, pick a sport and describe how it is played in about 5 sentences.




Today in class combined our class with Miss Adrienne's class because Miss Hannah is on holiday. She'll be back next week! Together, we reviewed some school and classroom vocabulary. For our portfolios, we tried to remember 25 different objects and had a competition to see who could remember the most items and words. We completed pages 10 and 11 of our textbooks with some vocabulary, reading, and speaking practice. 

In the second part of class, we played a speaking game about school, schedules, teachers, and rules. We reviewed the months and days of the year and completed the listening exercise on page 12 to practice the differences between spoken and written dates. We then raced against the clock to line up in order of our birthdays and name days. To finish class, we reviewed the present tense and completed page 13 of our textbook.


Today we played some games to remember each other's names, get to know each other better, and remember some of the things we learned last year. We talked about the rules we have in class, and also how we can earn rewards and small surprises :-) We decorated our portfolios while listening to music in English, and also took a quiz and talked about how we like to learn. I'm excited to hear about how your next class goes!
