Happy kids playing English

Happy kids playing English
Blog adatto agli alunni della scuola primaria e secondaria di I grado con brevi e divertenti aggiornamenti sui temi più vicini al mondo dei bambini di età compresa tra i 5 ed i 13 anni. Questa idea nasce dal mio desiderio di mamma di condividere con altri bimbi e genitori l'importanza di un approccio ludico e creativo all'apprendimento di una lingua straniera in qualsiasi momento della nostra giornata. Dedicato alla mia carissima insegnante di Inglese alle Medie: Prof. Anna Maria Piatti Errera ed ai nostri futuri "cittadini/e del mondo"!

The Way the Bunny Hops - Easter Song for Children

Hi kids!

Almost ready for Easter? Are you planning a trip somewhere with mum and dad?
What a nice song to sing along during your journey!

This is the way the bunny hops, hop hop hop, hop hop hop
this is the way the bunny hops on Easter day!

This is the way he wiggles his nose, wiggle wiggle wiggle, wiggle wiggle wiggle
this is the way he wiggles his nose on Easter day!

This is the way he flops his ears, flop flop flop, flop flop flop
this is the way he flops his ears on Easter day!

This is the way he shakes his tail, shake shake shake, shake shake shake,
this is the way he shakes his tail on Easter day!

This is the way the bunny hops, hop hop hop, hop hop hop
this is the way the bunny hops on Easter day! On Easter day!

Happy April Fool's Day!

Hi Kids!

I've just heard on the radio that from tomorrow all of you will find in your classroom a very special new schoolmate sitting along with him/her at the desk: an animal beginning with the same first letter in your name!!!
So...let's check quickly among your friends...
....is your name Lapo? You will probably find a little Lion sitting beside you! Is your name Teresa? You might find a Tortoise! Is your name Giovanni? A Giraffe will be waiting for you...and for your yummy snack!!!
Hey kids...this is the real revolution at school, isn't it?

But...what about the animal sitting beside the teacher...?!?

Father's Day

Hi kids!

Today in Italy it's Father's day! 
So, let's make daddy a surprise this evening and sing along this simple english song (sung to: "Twinkle twinkle little star")

Daddy, daddy let me say
I love you in every way
I love you for all you do
I love you for being you
Daddy, daddy let me say
Have a happy father's day!

I guess you also have a little present for your daddy and you are looking for a nice package...just look at the picture below:
all you need is a clothespin and a paper-tie drawn by you!

A big hug and a kiss will be of course the best gift!

On this special day a reading of the classic Dr.Seuss children's story.
It has relevance today as we struggle with civility in matters of race, religion and politics.
