2. MANGO TREE
Group 4 (9-11 year olds)
Welcome teachers to Vivadí´s second Cycle!
The structure of this cycle may look familiar, as it is similar to the previous one. This will make it easier for you to get used to the planning and class dynamic!
The objectives of this cycle has are different from Cycle 1, but continue in the same line. Therefore, the rubric is also different as it is based on these new objectives.
Remember we are always available to solve any doubts you may have!
1. STARTING SONG
In this section, students will understand how narratives exist anywhere. One of the many examples is in songs.
You can choose between these options in no particular order, but, remember how important repetition is. So, if you choose to repeat a song more than once, don’t worry if another song is never told.
1. STARTING SONG
Emphasize that the English class is beginning with a rite that will be repeated in every class.
Mess up the class and make room in the centre of it
The children take off their shoes
This is the main activity that will follow the narrative in our classes. There are surveys, creative projects, and activities around the school (if that’s a possibility).
• The hands-on! activities are always inspired by the narratives, so make sure you check them in advance in order to better choose when each one of them.
5. BRAIN BREAKS
It is a transitional break to regain the student's attention, to keep them focused and to integrate their minds and bodies into one same action.
At the end of the game, the students should be sitting in a circle in the middle of the room.
Let the children listen to a story in English
Always try to generate curiosity in your students by eliciting from them any kind of speculation; and when reading with them, make sure you use your body language so that meaning is clear.
The narrative will always be followed by a simple discussion, in which you will ask specific questions about what they’ve heard or seen.
