We are finally making some progress in the third year in which I am teaching this year. I won't lie. I have often wanted to quit. The output is so slow and they so often make mistakes when speaking, when I have not had this problem the previous years. Some still make mistakes like "I am blue" although we have had countless games, help within the groups. At this point, they still work in the original group from September because they have finally started to see how they can help each other. It still often feels that 45 minutes are just not enough for this group. They are currently finishing the project "about me" and we will slowly move to the book "Roar" in order for me to consciously start to implement what you have been teaching us at the last seminar. I hope I can make it work, although it is still winter. I would really wish to invite you to have a lesson with them to see what can be done and where I can improve, Mija. Have a great rest of the January!

Language school for our youngest.

The virus has forced the C00lSch00l to finish its school year early. Since our approach is based on communication and socialisation (and not memorisation and grades) we had no problem evaluating the progress of our children through daily observation and formative assessment. Today, you can see in the attached photo how we present a child's achievements for a kindergarten class (age 5). Maybe you can find it useful and can tailor it to your needs. Next week, we'll complete for the rest of our classes, up to grade 8. Stay in touch ...

English translation of the report:

Your child accepts English as a means of communication between him and me (teacher). Communication is supported by demonstration, pictures, mime and music. Your child responds to my instructions non-verbally and in that shows understanding.
Your child also speaks in English when we play games and sing songs.
** is an open and happy child, who is discovering the world through movement. Your child loves discovering new things and your child magically turns our English lessons into a joyful event.

Our C00lSch00l school year is approaching the point where the students prepare their final show for parents. It's a cooperative effort of different grades, but all of them make their own contribution (they put together their own texts). The framework of the play is, however, given to them. We'll prepare 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' and 'Tiddler' this year.

All C00lSch00l subscribers, you'll receive the free copy of the plays on your email.

The 4th graders have already tried to write their own story. The first three paragraphs were part of poster-writing (the teachers can learn about the activity at the workshop Visual and Tactile Grammar), the rest of it was students' own input composed with the help of their doodle.

After reading about it, talking about it, relating the words to the relevant question words thus learning about parts of speech, the students finally wrote the story ... They had the picture book and the questions to help them with structuring the text. The challenge, however, was that the book is written in the narrative past and the students had to write it in the narrative present.

Find differences in the texts

How well can your students listen? Can they find all the differences in the spoken text and choose the correct option? Can they explain why the chosen option is the correct one?

What food do you like?

Today's film clip is an online lesson for children. It is practice for my 1st graders for our final show for parents (hope we'll have it!)

Children need to guess the food and then sing the song ... the one they're going to sing for the Tiger who came to tea.

The clip can be, of course, used simply to learn a song ...

Kitty's Bedtime Search - storytelling for YFLL aged 5-6

For C00lSch00l kindergarten classes, I have made a storytelling clip 'Kitty's Bedtime Search'.
Kitty wants to go to sleep but cannot find her toy, Lucy. How will she fall asleep without her?
The story is performed by using toys and spoken in a gap-fill manner. This way children can easily follow and understand the plot as well as engage with the narration.
Teachers, you're welcome to use it for your classes, too.

EVALUATION is giving feedback on one's performance which encourages motivation while GRADING is ranking other person's knowledge most often leading to imposing the authority. While evaluation can stand alone, grading (without prior evaluation) can often lead to discouragement. Our EVALUATION SATURDAY MEETING is focusing on how to organise activities to be able to give a relevant evaluation for student's motivation.

The second part of the PBA manual draft was sent out. It's about how to make teaching effective by focusing on children's understanding.
If you want to get your copy, I'll send it to you. Follow the link: https://www.c00lsch00l.eu/CoolPool_ENG/subscribe.php

Going about composing a text with the 5th graders (age 10-11) Word web created from the PB Tiddler by Julia Donaldson comes in handy here. It gives us visual support with the vocab and the word order.

The questions help us organise the text into a presentable structure ...

Yes, we are going to write the story, too ... we'll post it soon 😀

Saturday meeting in the C00lSch00l's classroom. Cosy and much more than just an ordinary workshop. Seeing how the YFLL classroom works ...

Prepositions ... seeing the objects live, the relations between the objects suddenly become much clearer. Is the 😺behind the 🦕 or the 🦕 behind the 😺? 😜

Going about writing in a context.
Children aged 6-7 are wondering what Patrick's pet is. The chain is unbelievably thick ... Could the pet be ...🐘
Page by page the children discover ... and read ...and write ...

For all of you, who follow (and use) the PBA activities posted on the C00lSch00l wall Cl-Scl... I have started writing the PBA manual: the description of the activities wrapped in the autumn project with a clear description of their language, social and communication use. Since I would appreciate some feedback, all of you, who have signed up for my newsletter subscription, will get excerpts from the manual-to-be. A win-win deal. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

I'm sure you all know the game 'Day-Night'. Similarly, children play a small letters game. Three positions: with legs, with a long neck or as a scared bug

It's not only a song, but it's also a nice story, actually. Children aged 5 simply adore it.

The 2nd graders are flirting with the letters. The book 'This Is My Pet' is perfect for just that. Patrick has a pet but, what is it? The chain he has is rather big and look at the paw ... So children are guessing 🦖🐆🐘... and putting the letters together for the spelling ...

Do you remember the Tiger who visited Sally and ate up everything she had in store? Well, he then visited my 4th graders and they needed to go shopping ... Of course, the children knew it was just a story, so they said "If the tiger came I WOULD buy him ... SOME butter, 3 bananaS, A pumpkin ... But, I'm sorry there isnt ANY COFFEE in my store." They were really careful with their spelling ... but some errors are only natural ... We have a special lesson reviewing what children have written. Then they correct the misspelings.

We are getting together IN FEBRUARY for our Saturday Meeting focused on LISTENING. We'll do it through the project SUMMER opening it with the story 'On the Seashore'. You're welcome to join us. https://www.c00lsch00l.eu/CoolPool/prijava_seminar.php

What do you think Santa does when he cannot deliver the presents on time?
Writes a poem, of course!

Practising fine motor skills through English. Glittery fantastic!

Visual grammar: Each child had to put up their own sentence and relate the parts of speech to the appropriate question word. Age 10.

December ... a perfect time for reading it A Christmas Carol ... with my 5th graders. We're about to introduce the time concept and the ghosts from the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE are there to help. 😜

Literacy ... the ability to read and write. We covered its steps with the teachers who teach young learners English at our Saturday meeting. Peek 🧐 at what we did ... ⬇️⬇️⬇️ (But we did much more 😜)

What an engaging game for practising numbers ... It was children's playday ...

Children (aged 6-7) are creating (drawing) their own story based on the Fox's Socks plot.

On a chilly November morning, the foxes (Michael, Franny, Steve ...) want to go out. They are messy foxes and cannot find their clothes.
There's Maggy, for example. She looks under the chair, by the window, in the chest ... and she finds all her missing clothes. She puts them on and goes out.

Children narrate their stories themselves, with the help of their drawing. They just love the challenge.

INNOVATION IN LANGUAGE LEARNING, International Conference, Florence, 2019.

I was proud to have been part of it. We were a group of teachers and professors presenting ways to develop an autonomous learner.

At the closing speech, there was one interesting notion that stuck with me: WE TEACHERS ARE TOO FOCUSED ON OUR TEACHING AND TOO OFTEN FAIL TO SEE IF OUR STUDENTS HAVE LEARNT WHAT WE'VE TAUGHT THEM; CAN THEY USE THAT KNOWLEDGE?

The innovation in teaching should, therefore, seek ways to facilitate THE USE OF KNOWLEDGE, not just memorisation.

I am proud to see that my students can use the language for communication.

My article titled Visual, Tactile and Motor Grammar Learning in the PBA was approved by the Innovation in Language Learning scientific committee and was published. I'm holding a speech at the conference today (14th Nov.). You can find the article on the link below

The upgrade from the story 'Fox's Socks'. Aim: pre-literacy, recognising the written word. Age 6-7.

There are items of clothes (flashcards) hidden in the room (in the box, in the book, on the chair, on the piano, under the desk and under the chair). The game is: Who'll get dressed up first? Children are walking around the classroom following the rhythm of the drum. When the drumming stops, they stop. On the command 'GO!', they go to the places where the 'clothes' are hidden. They turn the flashcard over and mark the piece of clothing they have found on their paper. They say what they've found: 'I have trousers in the box' (the upgrade: 'What do you do with them?' 'I put them on.'). The cards are then mixed up and placed to the chosen positions randomly. The procedure repeats. The game is over when the first child finds all the clothes.

Engaging, in the context of the story, topic mixed and meaningful.

Our CoolSchool Saturday Meeting was focused on how to organise social games to promote the speaking and at the same time learn the relevant vocabulary to be able to present the story ... Through the winter project, of course, based on the story One Winter's Day by M. Christina Butler. Awsome!

English word order is much influenced by the mother tongue. Nothing beats a lot of speaking and listening to English, of course, but there is also a way of teaching children to be consciously aware of English word order through Visual Grammar (age 10-11).

C00lSch00l

At C00lSch00l, we have been teaching children (age 4-12) English through stories for over 15 years. Our Project-Based Approach is unique; the language is presented through children’s POV, and through visual, tactile and moving activities. You can read more on our website, www.c00lsch00l.eu.

We also run workshops for students and teachers whose interest, devotion and job is to teach the language for its use. We offer the teaching framework based on 5 Project-Work Steps: (1) Introducing a theme; (2) Do it yourself; (3) Social games; (4) Literacy; (5) Listen and respond.

We have designed unique teaching tools to facilitate the approach and are meant as children’s tactile and visual support at their gamifyed activities.
