In 1st and 2nd Grade we are working in an eTwinning project called: “Penpals Project”.
But, what is eTwinning? What are you talking about?
Let’s me explain: “eTwinning” is a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and to be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe.
In the project, we are working with 5 European schools from Turkey, Italy, Poland, Germany and France. The idea of the project is to practice using the English language in the form of traditional letters. Students write letters every 2 months.
In this post, I’ll show you how we are working in class, we are very excited because we will send the letters next week.
Besides that, I think it’s a great resource to use in my class.
I’m tired of traditional methodology, I need a change, to involve my students in the use of English in their everyday lives. Actions speak louder than words so, I took the decision to open my mind and to explore other ways of teaching: projects, flipped classroom, presentations…
And here we are!
This first letter is about their hobbies, they must talk about 2 of them, why they like, with who they play…
I hope you like it, I’ll post some pics.
