Welcome to our Blog

Hello my friends!! We are students of the second level of Childhood Education. We study the cognitive, emotional, social and sexual development of children. Also, the autonomy, the habits and the routines. We organise activities for children, such as songs, stories, games,... in English and Spanish. In this blog, we offer interactive resources in English to use with children. Furthermore, we will prepare some group dynamics and we will also deal with some interesting English speaking countries festivities and customs, such as Halloween, Christmas Holiday, Valentines Day, Easter and Father´s Day and Mother´s Day. Thank you very much for visiting our blog.

What Teachers Make

Dear students, this is a video-listening activity I have just cooked up for you.

Allow me to introduce you to Taylor Mali first. He is a "slam poet". You don't know what slam means? Click on this link and find out what slam poetry is about.

Taylor Mali is one of the most well-known poets to have emerged from the poetry slam movement and one of the few people in the world to have no job other than that of poet. 

Listen to his slam poem and do the activity below. 

Do you think he has ever worked as a teacher? What's your guess?  Why?
Check here if you were right.
