1. PALM TREE
Palmeira

Group 3 (7-8 year olds)

Hello teacher! Welcome to Vivadi’s first cycle of work. This is the beginning of a journey that we’ll go through together, to help our students acquire the english language!

 

2. GAME

THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS CYCLE ARE:

  • Understand Vivadí's class routine and distinguish the English class from the other classes.

  • Develop a curiosity for the content and start building a relationship with the language.

  • Begin to recognize the class as a safe environment for experimenting with the new language. 

When you see that there is progress in these areas, you can move on to the next cycle. Check the rubric that will help you know if the group is ready to move forward!

WE SUGGEST YOU CHECK THE EVIDENCE WITH WHICH YOU WILL OBSERVE IF YOUR STUDENTS HAVE ACHIEVED THESE OBJECTIVES​

  • Also, it's time to put on their shoes again and organize the class.
