Simple Past: Biographies


Dani Lyra asked me to draw a set of drawings about John Lennon´s biography in order to use it as a teaser.The teaching point here is the past form of the verbs. The teacher shows students the pictures/video and they guess the sequence of events and come up with the story.  Afterwards, teacher assigns a project, in which students will search about a late celebrity and write about him/her. They have to say when and where they were born, what they did and when and how they died.

Junior Projects: Landscapes

For this project, which is our last one this semester, my students learned how to describe a landscape using the verb There To be. They were supposed to draw, color and describe a landscape of their own and use there is a + singular nouns and there are + plural nouns. Other possible forms such as uncountable nouns or unique nouns (for instance, "smoke" and "sun"), which happen to appear in some of the descriptions, were not addressed.
