Bank of common knowledge

Is there something better than sharing with your peers what you find interesting on the internet?

We have created an open collaborative board on Pinterest so as to pin whatever we think it might be useful for our classes. In my view, it should be compulsory at schools to create a bank of common knowledge  in order to share between the teachers the different tools, webs or info that may be interesting for everyone.

The task of this week was to pin on the collaborative board interesting resources and useful for CLIL.

I would like to share with you the link to the Pinterest board in which we are sharing attractive and useful resources for children or tips for teachers:

Bank of common knowledge with Pinterest

I have added on the collaborative board the following webs which I believe that may be useful for CLIL:

- Do you like broccoli ice cream?

This song from Super Simple Songs on Youtube is not only useful to acquire food vocabulary but also to learn how to make questions and answers.

 - Interesting and attractive activities

On this web you can find online games, activities and lessons for children. You can also find some game templates or you may if you wish create your own game! There are lots of communicative and interactive activities.
I recommend you to take a look at it!

- Helpful website to practice and acquire English

Website with which students can learn while they enjoy. They will acquire vocabulary, grammar structures at the same time they develop their listening and reading skills through an interactive way.

- Science online games and activities

A nice website in which you can find loads of online free science games and songs for primary students! Perfect for CLIL as they are required to use their cognitive skills and will practice and acquire grammar an vocabulary!

- Transportation song

Nice song to introduce different means of transport.

- Brush your teeth song

Lovely song about brushing your teeth, perfect for 1st graders! Great visual aids with which they will learn vocabulary.

As I mentioned before, Pinterest is very useful to share between colleagues different interesting topics. For example, last week I had to look for ideas to decorate my classroom at school and I searched on Pinterest and found loads of ideas that other teachers shared.
