Didactic Story: Nouns in -o that get -s in plural

Here is a story that will help the English learners remember the nouns that end in -o and get -s in plural.

The Filipinos came out of the studios where they had taken some photos and their new concertos. The concertos consisted of sopranos, two pianos and a guitar solo and all the drivers listen to it on their car radio the whole day through.

Then they googled two zoos and they went to see the biggest one because there were two kangaroos there. They were surprised when they saw a panda which seemed to weigh about 100 kilos and was eating bamboos. So, they took many photos and made many videos.

When they left the zoo, they went to a local church and enjoyed some oratorios. They realized the people were having a rehearsal of all the oratorios for Christmas. Moreover, they were astonished to see the people reading the oratorios from folios. Suddenly, they heard a strange noise and they glanced back over the shoulders. They saw two old men dressed in tuxedos, who were playing a game where commandos were training to make quick attacks.

I hope you enjoyed this story, as this is the next cameo for the famous actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Flashcard Games for Primary Learners

The Odd one Out

Choose a flashcard set, e.g. jobs or toys and put them in a pile. Hide three cards from another flashcard set, e.g. school supplies, in the pile. Hold up each card in turn and pupils name each object. When you show the card that is not from this flashcard set, pupils say ‘Odd one out!’

Clever Parrot

We used to call our children parrots whenever they repeat things. So, here is how we can organize this activity. Hold up a flashcard and say a word. If the word is the same as the item on the card, the pupils repeat the word. If the word and the flashcard item are different, they say: ‘No, no, no’ and say the correct variant.

Flashcard Bingo

Draw a square on a sheet of paper. Then draw two lines horizontally and two lines vertically to get 9 squares. Ask the pupils to write or to draw the words that you tell them. Each student chooses the square where to write each word. When all the 9 words are written or drawn, you call out the words in random order. The children highlight their words as they hear them. The first student who gets three words in a line and shout Bingo is the winner.

Didactic Story (nouns ending in -o that get both -s and -es endings in plural)

Here is a story that will help the English learners remember

a) the nouns ending in -o, that get both -s and -es ending in plural, and namely: mosquitos- mosquitoes, grottos-grottoes, cargos- cargoes, tornados- tornadoes, volcanos- volcanoes, halos-haloes

b) nouns ending in -o that get -es in plural, and namely- heroes, potatoes, tomatoes, embargoes, echoes

Mosquitoes’ Travelling Journal

Once upon a time there were two mosquitoes that lived in small grottoes but had a passion for travelling. That is why they decided to hide on a cargo ship and travel on the Silk Road along with Marco Polo. It took them three years to get to China because the trip was very difficult and they had to face many tornadoes. In spite of this, they were constantly telling their babies how brave they had been to have overcome those challenges especially because they knew how to choose a safe shelter amid the cargoes.

Several generations of mosquitoes enjoyed the beauty of the Chinese gardens for several years but one day they found out that Marco Polo was getting ready to return to Italy. They gathered around the table and decided to delegate two mighty fellows that could travel back to the land of their ancestors and meet their cousins. So the mighty mosquitoes flew to the port, crept on Marco Polo’s ship and set off for Italy.

They reached the land safely but they didn’t write many stories about their journey. Their babies didn’t share any stories either. They kept only a travelling log where they wrote about the morning routine of two young sailors who used to kneel and pray every morning in front of two icons. They noted that one day haloes appeared around the angels’ heads and the sailors began to cry for joy. Soon after that, they have reached Sicily and took the icons with them when they left the ship.

Finally, the two mighty mosquitoes met their cousins who shared many stories about their ancestors. Many stories spoke about siblings who survived in grottoes near neighbouring volcanoes.

PS

Some decades later, a large group of tiny mosquitoes wanted to travel on the Silk Road along with Christopher Columbus.  Unlike Marco Polo who set off from Italy, Christopher Columbus set off from Spain. Moreover, they headed a completely different direction and reached North America. Despite this, the tiny mosquitoes considered themselves heroes because they were the first ones to taste potatoes and signed an act claiming no one would ever put embargoes on importing potatoes.  They say there are echoes in the mosquitoes’ grottoes even today and you can hear them saying: ‘No embargoes on our potatoes! No embargoes on our tomatoes!’

I think many people enjoy the successful stories of these mosquitoes and learned their lesson on how to become heroes.

Trei dorințe de la Peștoșorul de Aur

La data de 3 octombrie 2020 va avea loc sesiunea online a cercului dramatic Ozcot unde doi elevi din clasa a treia de la L. T. ,,C. Stere” din or. Soroca, Adelina Zubatîi și Ciob Damian, vor prezenta sceneta ,,Peștișorul de Aur”.

Elevii s-au întrebat care ar fi trei dorințe pe care profesorii claselor primare le-ar cere de la Peștișorul de Aur și au pregătit deasemenea un cadou deosebit pentru un grup țintă de elevi din liceul în care învață și dascălii lor.

Elevii claselor primare pot urmări acest spectacol accesând lincul evenimentului de pe pagina de Facebook Guided Readign in English: https://www.facebook.com/Guided-Reading-in-English-2235867883296340/

Cercul dramatic este desfășurat în cadrul proiectului Lectura Ghidată în Limba Engleză, care la 7 decembrie 2019 a obținut locul 2 la concursul național de lucrări digitale. Concursul a fost desfășurat în cadrul Conferinței Naționale ”Platforme educaționale online”organizată de Academia pentru Schimbare și Inovare prin Educație în parteneriat cu Ministerul Educației, Culturii și Cercetării și Școala Inernațională ”Heritage”.

Donează și Beneficiază

Donează fișe didactice unui copil, și beneficiază de un curs gratuit de limba engleză!

Asociația Centrul pentru Educație Continuă lansează o campanie de informare privind promovarea metodelor de predare centrate pe elev, creșterea vizibilității acestor resurse didactice și diseminarea rezultatelor privind utilizarea jocului didactic în clasele 1-a și a 2-a. Campania se numește ,,Donează și Beneficiază” deoarece încurajează părinții și profesorii să achiziționeze fișe didactice și să le doneze unei clase de elevi, iar elevul, al carui părinte donează fișele este invitat la un curs gratuit de limba engleză care este promovat online. Donația trebuie să fie în valoare de 1500 lei și să achiziționeze minim 2 seturi de fise pentru  un grup de 10-30 de elevi.

Etapele de desfășurare a activităților:

Părinții și profesorii care doresc să susțină această campanie aleg fișele didactice în baza catalogului disponibil pe site-ul proiectului la adresa feltschool.net — publications— catalogul fișelor didactice la limba engleză.

La solicitarea părinților, contul de plată este expediat prin email.

Părinții prezintă dovada de plată, și elevul este conectat la cursul online.

Elevii claselor a 1-a sau a 2-a care primesc fișele didactice gratuit sunt invitați la un atelier de lucru privind utilizarea jocului didactic în procesul de învățare a limbii engleze. Atelierul este organizat online. Activitatea se înregistrează și se plasează pe pagina de facebook al proiectului FELT School.

În perioada pandemiei este mai dificil de a disemina resuresle didactice și de a organiza ateliere de lucru pentru elevi. În acest context, o nouă colaborare dintre elev, părinte și profesor va fi inițiată, iar elevii din clasele primare vor adăuga poate prima lor activitate de contribuții comunitare în colecția lor de certificate cu diverse realizări frumoase.

Prin această campanie, Centrul pentru Educație Conituă ajută deasemenea părinții să înțeleagă valoarea jocului didactic, și le oferă o ocazie extraordinară de a-și susține copilul în perioada când începe studierea limbii engleze și mulți elevi sunt isolați din cauza stării epidemiologice din țară.

Fișele didactice au fost elaborate și publicate grație suportului financiar al Fundației ,,Serviciul de Dezvoltare din Liechtenstein”, iar resursele digitale au fost elaborate din sursele asociației noastre.

În perioada anilor 2014-2019- o colecție de 20 de seturi de fișe didactice în limba engleză au fost elaborate și pilotate în peste 15 instituții din Republica Moldova. Seturile de fișe sunt destinate claselor primare, în special claselor 1-2 și sunt disponibile atât setul profesorului (format A5) cât și setul elevului (format A7).

Pe parcursul anului 2020, o serie de resurse digitale au fost elaborate și un curs online de limba engleză a fost lansat în perioada pandemiei.  Cursul a fost oferit gratuit și în cadrul școlii de vară ,,E- Vacanța” organizată de Direcția de Învățământ Soroca (iulie 2020). În perioada lunii august, încă un grup de 28 de elevi de la L.T. ,,Constantin Stere” din or. Soroca au frecventat o serie de ateliere unde au învățat cum pot utiliza jocul didactic în procesul de învățare interactivă în combinație cu resuresle digitale care complementează seturile de fișe didactice.
