As our colleague Nicky Lazarov says, the teachers who were lucky to be part of the 4th Transnational Meeting held in Sofia enjoyed the great work carried out by team Bulgaria in order to organize this meeting. It is also true that we enjoyed teaching students who were really motivated with our visit, (already an unforgettable memory for all of us).
From the team Spain we want to share one of the resources we used in our visit to Bulgaria, since they were very successful with the students, who were 100% involved in the proposed tasks.

Fifth-grade students enjoyed the review in a very entertaining way.
They worked on the contents of theme 2 of Natural Sciences with the material from the LEGO ROOM. Each group has chosen a content: touch, sight, hearing…
They have represented it and later explained it to their classmates.
It is a way we review together.
After a long trip…
we are welcomed with bread and honey, the symbol of Bulgarian hospitality …
Already in the hall of the school, we see the logo and the motto that join us together; FUNtastic: motivation starts here!
These are the feelings that all the components of this Funtastic project have felt throughout these days: we have felt welcomed and part of the same idea. It is worth the effort and such a long journey to think of new ideas that motivate both teachers and students. A real luck to be part of this project and this wonderful group of teachers.
It is impossible to finish this post without highlighting the generosity of all the students and teachers of this wonderful school: drawings, cards, pens, flowers …
When we say WOLF the first words that come to our mind are…LONELY, HUNGRY, WILD,TAIL , GRAY, FIERCE, FEAR ,SCARE
But today we had a wonderful book about a rabbit who runs fast to the deer´s house because the wolf is coming; the deer opens the door fast and shakes hands with the rabbit. The same happens with piglet and little bear. Finally the wolf arrives to his happy surprise … If you want to know more about the end, read it, you will not regret it!
Then we create puppets to tell the story to our friends and family .
(We have read it in spanish , but you can find it in all the languages)
BOOk: ¡Qué llega el lobo! by Émile Jadoul
A fun game to tell different stories in a very funny and sometimes silly way. Students sit in a circle and one of them begins a telling a story. Whenever the story teller decides to stop then the person on the right has to continue the story. By the end of the circle students laugh and enjoy themselves and feel comfortable with each other. Of course , as a class we now have inside jokes because of the story we created on the first day of school.
Jenga is a fun game that requires steady hands and concentration. It was only the first day at school but students had to show some skills. The Jenga game was used as an ice-breaker and since each wooden piece corresponded to a question we got to know each other and have some fun. The students had to answer the question that they picked and ask the same question to one of the other students. If the student failed to keep pull out a Jenga piece without destroying the tower, all the class would have to answer the questions corresponding to the pieces that had fallen.
There is not doubt that the stories play a vital role in the growth and development of children.
The books they read and the characters they get to know can become like friends. Reading also helps children with their confidence levels, coping with feelings and language and learning.
That is why our school offer every week this wonderful activity .
We read together books , we listen and sing songs related to the story ,we create artworks and many other activities.
We will tell you know every story we read in our class.
ARE YOU READY TO HAVE FUN WITH US?
