Back to School

Welcome the this new school- year.

You are now in your 4th year and you are also a year older and I'm sure you have also grown in responsibility.
We are going to start a new project called "Diver Tic Tac English". You are probably wondering "Why Diver?", Diver has two meanings in Spanish: Diversidad (diversity) and Divertido (fun). We, the teachers involved in the project, want you to work according to your possibilities, that is diversity (diversidad), and to do it in a fun way (divertido).


We have a lot of ideas for you to work and during this first term we are going to work with MUSIC.

* The first thing you have to do is to choose a song to work with, take your time, it must be one you like as you will have to do different things with it.

* Once you choose it, write the name and the singer on your Blog and download the lyrics and the sound. you can also include a video from youtube if there is one.

* Using the lyrics to prepare some exercises for the class, go to Isabel Pérez web page to look for ideas

* The next step is to read the song like a poem and record it as you did with the poem last year.

* And finally you have to prepare a video-karaoke with the song

All of you have to write a poem. I know it's not easy to become a "poet" but I'll give you a dossier and you'll realise how easy is to write a short one.

To download the dossier with instructions and activities tick on the title of the entry "Poets" and print it, you'll need it to do the exercises to prepare the poem.

When your poem is ready you'll have to record it. We have to download a free program called "Audacity" and read it aloud and clear.

The poems must be in your blogs at the end of March.
