Back to school

 

Holidays are over. Are you excited to go back to school? I am, as usual. There is something refreshing in the begining of every school year. My head is full of new ideas and my heart is full of hope. During summer I learned a lot of new things and I'll try to put them into practice.
This year's theme will definitely be coding. I'm going to master my basic skills and to promote coding among my students.
If you are interested in coding, you can start with Code.org.

http://learn.code.org/

If you sign in as a teacher, you can download lesson plans to conduct eleven unplugged lessons and create a virtual classroom to follow your students progress. As a student you can do K-8 Intro to Computer Science Course.
Have a good school year!

Mr Printables - endless creativity

My drawing skills are rather limited. Sure, I can copy a simple picture when I'm looking at it, but I'm not that good at drawing my own stuff. That is why I admire people who can do it. 
Recently, I've come across this wonderfull website with cool printables. It's called Mr Printables.

http://www.mrprintables.com/

They've got a lot of great printables that are free for personal and small classroom use. Their flashcards are so pretty and aesthetic. There are also ideas for games and activity books that may be useful for language teachers.
My two personal favourites are Days & Months Flashcards and Earth Vocabulary Flashcards.
So get your printers ready and visit http://www.mrprintables.com/

The Fourth of July

Today the USA is celebebrating Independence Day. As I've already mentioned, my cousin is an American citizen, so it's his holiday too.
Happy 4th July!
