Be thankful for home
Be thankful for food
Be thankful for birds that fly
Be thankful for sleep
Be thankful for flowers
Be thankful for clouds in the sky.
Be thankful for friends
Be thankful for rain
And the rainbows that follow close by.






This isn't just a turkey
As everyone can see,
I made it with my hand
Which is part of me.
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say,
I hope that your
Thanksgiving Day
has been a lot of fun.

We have just finished the unit, My City, and we are about to start a long weekend. In other words, we have a great opportunity to explore all the wonderful places that our city has to offer. Perhaps we could visit the Retiro, the Plaza Mayor, or maybe the shops in our neighborhood such as the butcher's, the baker's or the chemist's, so as the kids can see first-hand the things that we have been learning about.




Well done Lucía! Congratulations! 



Exam time again!! 

  
Let's revise a bit of vocabulary. Don't forget to use the online book and  the CD, in the case of English.

Halloween is rapidly approaching, and kids are already getting excited. To get familiar with some vocabulary related to this tradition, we can watch this video.




We’re All Wonders may be Auggie’s story, but it taps into every child’s longing to belong, and to be seen for who they truly are. It has been the perfect way to talk about empathy and kindness in our classroom.After all, we’re all different in our own way and we’re all wonders too.
Little by little we will master the ABC and this video is a very nice complement to our class activity. It teaches us the names of the letters, the sound that each letter makes and it also gives us some words and pictures that correspond to each letter.

A different way to visit our school and a nice way to learn the different names of the rooms at school. This gives you the opportunity to review unit 1 and to enjoy the video.Who is Pozuel? It´s me !!! Different name for different things .That's cool.
