Working...or just having fun?

This has been an amazing week. I had so much fun!!!!!I think my students enjoyed learning too!

Math, Science, Tech, Spanish and English are always great protagonist in our classroom but even more this week . Areas, perimeters and volume and of course running our own company are activities that have taken up most of our time this week. 

We are building a tiny house imagining the house of our dreams taking into account proportions, plans and planes and of course areas and perimeters! My students amazed me with how much they have improved in Math but also with their great imagination and creativity. It is great to see how eager they are to learn when the lesson is translated to the real world .

I also have to congratulate them OF COURSE for their work in building their own company. Even if we don't finally get to make the pins, the effort and the excitement that they are putting in class these days makes me proud to be their teacher. Really. AND THEY ARE LEARNING SO MUCH!!!!Even without realizing it!

Spring dance is coming also and we have been dancing a bit. We need to practice more though!

Here are some pics of the great work they are all doing. Congrats grade 5 dlP!!!!!ç

Long time no see!!!

I know!!!It has been a long time. Sorry about that. I have been so busy that I haven´t found the time to add new posts to our blog, but I added some in our other blog


where you can find interesting facts about Spain, Japan and Canada.

Curling, a surprise party (THANK YOU ALL!!!), The Beauty and the Beast musical....So many things!!! But the most important thing: We have been learning a lot!!!

We have worked on fractions for some time and now we have started trigonometry and geometry. Math is amazing isn´t it?

In Science we are learning now about Matter. I have shared dozens of links with the students so that they don´t have an excuse to do nothing at home 😊.

yes, I know!I don´t forget about your cars!!!All of them were amazing!!!Isabella and Meghan are the winners in originality, together with Gianna´s, which was also the fastest and most straight car of all. Meghan´s remote control was incredible too!!!I also specially admire Luca´s car because he mainly made it in the class and put a lot of effort into it. Other winners are Joaquín´s , Samuel´s (funny one, it wouldn´t stop spinning!), and congratulations to Constanza, Dominga, Irina, Isabel, Sophia and Reyd as well.

Also remember you can use mathletics and of course read as much as you can!

Art is also an important part if our classroom

These days we have been talking a lot about bullying, and we have taken a nice pledge and I hope that everybody will succeed. I have explained in Health class how saying things that some people consider "normal" or "jokes" are neither of them. ´I hate you¨, "you are stupid", etc

A nice video to understand Lent a bit better


And lots of videos for those who are struggling in Maths or those who want to get better!
