Vítáme Vás v novém školním roce 2018-2019!



Na této webové stránce se dočtete, co žáci na hodinách angličtiny dělali, jaké domácí úkoly jim byly zadány, co si mají nastudovat na testy a také se zde dozvíte i další důležité informace týkající se výuky. Proto Vás prosíme, abyste si tyto stránky pravidelně prohlíželi. Budete-li mít nějaké další dotazy, můžete nám kdykoli zavolat nebo poslat email.

*Super Minds*

 Vážení rodiče, 
chtěli bychom vám dát na vědomí, že curriculum učebnice Super Minds se skládá ze dvou částí - první část tvoří základ (je povinná) a druhá část je nadstavbová (doplňková). Kurz byl sestaven tak, aby vyhovoval různým typům anglických programů a aby se jim mohl přizpůsobovat v závislosti na tom, kolik hodin angličtiny týdně děti mají. V našem případě, kdy máme čtyři hodiny týdně, jsme schopni probrat základní část (prvních šest stran z každé lekce), ale na druhou část (dalších šest stran v každé lekci) máme velmi málo nebo vůbec žádný čas. Z tohoto důvodu často naleznete v učebnicích Student's Book and Workbook vynechané stránky. Vyučující vašich dětí vždy zveřejní na webových stránkách zadání domácího úkolu, a tak si budete moci zkontrolovat, zda vaše dítě probírá látku, která je povinná. Co se týká zbývajících stránek a cvičení, samozřejmě budeme žáky pobízet, aby si je sami doma vypracovali, pokud chtějí. Vyučující tyto stránky a cvičení zkontrolují a žáci za ně získají hvězdičky navíc jako odměnu za své úsilí. Součástí učebnice Student's Book je i interaktivní DVD-ROM obsahující animované příběhy z učebnice, interaktivní hry a aktivity včetně písniček s karaoke verzí, které je určeno k domácímu procvičování.

Zde jsou uvedeny instrukce pro registraci do systému Cambridge Learning Management System. Kód k aktivaci najdete uvnitř učebnice Workbook. Jedná se o doplňující aktivity k učebnici, které jsou určeny k domácímu procvičování. V hodinách s nimi nepracujeme. 

 

OCTOBER

17.10

Today in class the students went over any of the homework questions they had from WB pgs 14, 16, 20, and 21 #3. As a quick review and warmer, the students played some games on the smartboard to practice spelling unit 1 vocabulary and to make sentences using the past continuous tense.

In pairs, the students did some competitions to complete exercises practicing past continuous grammar and spelling verbs ending in -ing

In the second half of class, the students who completed a comic strip from last class presented for an extra star!

We talked about what a "form" is and what kind of information is usually on them. We looked as some examples in SB pg21 and what forms are used for. The students came up with some creative ways someone could use a form, and then they spent time creating their own form for a specific purpose (for a special club, a field trip, etc). 

Homework: fill in the form for 1) you, 2) a friend/family member/etc, and 3) an imagined "person" (a pet, an animal, a character, etc.)

15.10

Today in class we talked shortly about the topics they covered, and the homework due by today. In their portfolios, they wrote about: What are three things you learned about natural disasters from the presentations last lesson?

The students decided they would like to take the unit test today. To practice the past continuous tense, they wrote their own ideas to complete the sentences on WB pg 20, #3 and shared their crazy and funny ideas with the class.

To practice the unit vocabulary, partners completed the word scramble on WB pg 21, #1 and then created their own word scrambles using the vocabulary list for unit 1.

In the second hour, the students completed the Unit One Test in class, and at the end of the lesson could choose to either play an acting game with different verbs or create an original comic strip.

Homework: WB pg 21 #3; complete a 5-box comic strip about ANY character about their "typical day". **FOR AN EXTRA STAR** complete with colour, text and drawings, and present to the class on Wednesday!

Password: test day

10.10

At the beginning of the class we started with checking the homework in the workbook.

SuperMinds: workbook p.17 - listening

Presentation of the homework 'Natural Disaster' - students have received a sheet of paper and they were explained how to make bullet points for an oral presentation. Each of them prepared 5-10 bp and most have drawn an illustration for their presentation (on the other side of the paper) too. Each student then stood up in front of the class and gave a short presentation about a historical natural disaster of their choice and other students eventually asked some questions.

At the end we watched a short video about a hurricane being born and a reconstruction of the Vesuvius eruption in Pompeii.

HW: To complete all unfinished HW in workbook and in SB assigned over the past weeks, otherwise no HW today as students have prepared fun and engaging presentations independently. A weekend to celebrate!

NOTE: we are taking a unit test on Monday October 15 :)

8.10

At the beginning of the class we wanted to check our hw and work with it but as very few people brought the homework completed, we talked about 'What fabulous things was I doing and what was I studying over the weekend?' (to practice present continuous). The task was 'give me a great excuse' (and finish your homework later).

MDR/portfolio: What were you doing a) 20 mins ago? b) last night at 6:30pm? c) 8:30 am this morning?

SuperMinds SB: pg.14 and 15 - we looked at the pictures of the story and talked about them, guessing the storyline and situations, where and when it is happening. Then we listened to the story and checked on the unknown vocabulary. On pg.15 we did excercises 3 and 4. We scenically read the story, each student having a role.

By the end of the class each student got a word assigned via flash cards and they had to use it to create a sentence in past continuous that sounds true also using a time indication preferably (last week, this morning, two days ago etc.). Others had to guess whether this statement was true or false (a bluff)

HW: Wednesday bring last week's workbook HW + SB (student book) pg. 16 + disaster (due today originally), Monday bring WB (workbook) pg. 14 and 20

 

3.10

MDR/portfolio: What did you do last evening? (Write at least three sentences.)

HW: Checking HW assigning new hw - pg.11 exc. 2,3 & pg.13 (all)

Music genres: ''Hip hop, hip hop - Tereza, Tereza' (a popular name game in a circle - students lap twice presenting a genre and twice presenting a name of another student in the circle and so 'pass the word' - we tried to name as many music genres as possible and then wrote them on a board.

SM student book: pg.12 - we read the lyrics and tried to see which words might not be correct, then listened twice and substituted the incorrect words in lyrics and then sang the song. We read a short article about punk rock and had a conversation about this genre + listened to short music clips by Ramones and The Clash.

'What did you do yesterday at 6:30 pm? Do you have any proof?' :)

Extra Practice sheet - who stole the money? bank robbery detectiv work excercise - in pairs

Spelling race between two teams - practicing -ing forms (gerundium) of verbs presented by the teacher (verbs finishing with -e: move, bake, wake, dance - moving, baking, waking, dancing...)

In the end of the class we played a miming game using -ing forms. 'What is s/he doing?' and imagination: 'S/he is riding My Little Pony in the Alps.'

 

1.10

Today we have started a lesson with MDR/portfolio work. A question students copied and tried to answer was 'What is a natural disaster?' And we named together types of natural disasters we know (avalanche, earthquake, flood, tornado, hurricane, volcanic eruption, drought, blizzard, wildfire).

We stepped back to bookwork briefly to check a due homework in workbook (pg.5, pg.6 exc.3, pg.7). Most pupils had majority finished and correct, but some need to correct some mistakes/misunderstanding we have explained and/or finish an excercise. They should do it until Wednesday.

We had a short 'wake up' break to shake our bodies to Gnarls Barkley's song Run (I'm a natural disaster): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5quAcFIDAMQ

We have returned to the desks to work on pg.10 (SM student book), learning new vocabulary and completing sentences in excercise 2 from listening.

Pupils worked further in groups of two/three and asked questions in past tense with time specification (using time phrases - yesterday, last week, in the summer, 1st September etc.)

We sat in a circle and students in small groups replied to the survival quiz - we verified the correct answers together.

HW: For the following Monday (8th), look at the pg.16, SM student book and think/find a natural disaster that happened in the past. Write 5 facts about it in English! (We will use this homework to develop into a short presentation project later, 12th Oct.)

 

SEPTEMBER 

26.09

Today in class the students answered these questions about their school day in their portfolios: 1) How was school today? 2) What did you do at school today? 3) Did you have a good time? 4) Why was it a good/bad day? Then they walked around the classrooms and interviewed each other, and shared what they learned with the class.

The students quickly finished their poster (finally!), and then we looked at pg 7 in their books to further practice asking and answering questions in the past simple verb tense.

We also to review some emotions vocabulary. We also played a fast game where one student made an expression, and another student had to guess what the other person was thinking.

In the second half of class, the students listened to and read a story on pgs 8-9. We talked about what happened in the story, what the characters did, and how the story ended. They also talked about what they thought happened after the story finished.

Afterwards, they played a game on the smartboard to practice making past simple questions, and we played a game at the whiteboard where the students, in two teams, had to write the correct past simple form of the verb given by the teacher (i.e. change “have” --> “has”).

At the end of class, they split into two teams and created their own crazy experiments, which they presented to the class.

Homework: from the workbook-- pg 8 #3, 4, pg 9 ALL

Today in class the students compared their homework, which was a scavenger hunt to find different things in the student's book. Then they completed the portfolio assignment: name as many school subjects as you can in two minutes.

We started working from the student's book today, with an introduction of the characters, and we started with the topic, "Science Lesson". We went over the vocabulary experiment, shelf, goggles, instructions, apron, explosion, bubbles, test tube, liquid, gloves, powder, and the students shared ideas about the definitions, and checked with the teacher when they were unsure.

The students played a game where the students moved around a room to show their feelings about different school subjects (love, dislike, neutral, etc), which they really enjoyed :)

In the second half of the lesson, the students completed a logic puzzle on pg 5. Then the students listened to a student's book song about time travel, and followed along with the lyrics on pg 6. Then everyone discussed the meaning and vocabulary of the song.

To finish the class, everyone worked hard to complete the class poster for the Blue Whales, which all were very eager to make sure it looked nice : )

Homework: from the workbook--ALL of pg 5, exercise#3 of pg 6, ALL of pg 7

19.09

Today in class the students completed their first portfolio assignment: 1. What are three things you like about EATS? 2. What is one thing you want to change? 

They shared their homework, three facts about blue whales, with a fun game, and those who finished the extra postcard work presented to the class.

In the Tour of the Textbook, they split into groups and had to guess the theme and possibly vocabulary based on the three unit titles they were given. 

In the second half of class, they shared some ideas for the Blue Whales poster. Everyone planned out their ideas using pencil, and together began designing, drawing, and colouring. 

Homework: to become more familiar with the book, find 1 person, 2 pictures, 3 places, 4 things, and 5 vocabulary words in the student's book. (these responses can be anything found in the book)

17.09

Today in class the students introduced themselves and talked a bit about what they did over the summer, so we could all get to know each other better:)

We reviewed the rules, and how stars, homework, and classroom jobs work. The students each got their new portfolio and spent some time writing their name and decorating the front cover.

In the second half of class, the students all shared what they know about bullying, and we reviewed some of the problems and solutions for different bullying situations. Then the students completed an activity where they had to ask other students about their opinions, and shared their responses with the group. Finally, we all agreed as a class to prevent bullying, and signed a "No Bullying Allowed" certificate.

At the end of class, students talked a bit about the group animal, the blue whale, and what they know about it.

Homework: find 3 interesting facts about the class animal, the Blue Whale, to share and use next class on our team poster! (also, finish the postcard if you haven't already, for an extra star!)
