Nate,our native speaker assistant, and I opened the boxes and showed the objects that had been hidden inside, then we checked the vocabulary and described the objects with the help of the children.
Once the children have felt the objects inside the box and guessed what they think are, they return to their tables and draw their ideas about the hidden objects.
Have a look to their pictures,they are really good.
In this section the children answer the questions that I ask them, for example Is it big?Is it small? Is it wet or dry? Is it smooth or rough?I provide them with the answers so they are speaking in English and learning by doing. BubbleShare: Share photos - Easy Photo Sharing
For the Art class I have invented an activity where the children guess what I have hiden in boxes.They describe in English what they think there is inside the box.They only are able to touch and smell, they can't have a look.The children are participants of their learning, experimenting ,using English in a funny way.
