Project song - first draft

Dear friends,

 

today I tried to arrange our project song - I mixed all pupils voices to one song . it is really an international coproduction. Probably we wouldn't win a price in European next top choir but I think it is really authentic.

 

But hear yourself:

 

 

Train your vocabulary

Hello,

 

I created with quizlet some flashcards to train your vocabulary.

I already created an English - Polish and an English - German version.

Downubder you can have a first try with the English - Polish version.

Our dictionary is finalized

Our dictionary is ready - I really like the results with words in all our languages - recorded from all of us and as well the illutsrations our kids from Poland, Germany and Macedonia made. Well done we can be proud :-).

 

Well done:

How can we help ...

Last days we prepared a padlet, where we can collect ideas "how personally can help endangered animals".

We invite your kids to post as well some ideas - they could use their mother tongue and I would like to ask the teachers to translate to English ... I already did with one post from Jens.

You can find the padlet as always in our project activities:

3rd March - World Wildlife Day

In 2013 the United Nations proclaimed the 3rd March as World Wildlife Day. The aim is to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild fauna and flora. The date is the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973, which plays an important role in ensuring that international trade does not threaten the species’ survival.

 

 

There are many official pages about.

Here is the link to the German page: Tag des Artenschutzes

Working with etherpad - collecting questions

Today we collected questions and answers for a "Millionaire game" we want to create with learningapps. We used etherpad - a web-based collaborative real-time editor, allowing us to simultaneously edit our text document, and see all of the others edits in real-time. This was really crazy.

We found a very nice game in the Internet. It is about matching sounds with animals.

Creative Commons Image Search Tool

It is always difficult to find free photos for us and our kids and as well it is dificult  to add the attributions correctly.  I found a wonderfull search engine for those pictures, called photos for class.

 

We and our kids can search there and when downloading a picture automatically the attribution is added.

Carnival in school

Today we want to report about something special in our region. It is called Carnival. It is a very long season - called the fifth season. Carnival season is traditionally opened on 11/11  at 11:11 a.m. and ends just before midnight on Ash Wednesday the following year.

The most active Carnival week begins on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, with parades being held during the weekend, and finishes the night before Ash Wednesday, with the main festivities occurring around Rosenmontag (Rose Monday). In Moers we have our own parade - held on Saturday.

 

On Carnival everybody costumes, dances, sings ....

Last Friday we had our Carnival party in school. Everybody came costumed to school. See yourself:
