At the beginning of the school years
we wanted to start with our Portfolio we decided to tell everybody what we did
along OUR SUMMER HOLIDAYS.
We drawn a picture about the thing we
have liked the most of the holidays. Later, we learnt the past tense of the
verb go. We wanted to put into words where we were and who were with us. So we
write a sentence in our pictures using the past.
These have been our final products:

CPR "Los Castaños" have celebrated the European Day of Languages through an Etwimming Project.
This project consists on an exchanges of "Greeting Cards" between the countries which are partners of it. These were written in the mother tongue and English.
Schools from most of European countries have taken part in it. We have received in Pitres cards from England, France, Portugal, Sweden, Island, Ukraine, Slovenia, Poland, Italy, Greece, Denmark, Ireland, etc.
After that, we have been working on looking for information about these countries and each pupil has done a small presentation to their partners of this country.
Of course, we have also sent our "Greeting Cards" to schools.
This week's Do Now focuses on the government shutdown… And this is the question, Who is to blame for the government shutdown?
At Do Now, they are featuring a great video from PBS NewsHour with lots of excellent classroom resources from NewsHour Extra, the Lowdown, and the New York Times. These resources can help students better understand the complexity of our government.
Our main aim with this project is to work on the calendar of International days. So each month we will have a special celebration of one chosen day. (European Day of Languages, International Day of the Enviroment, Day of Europe....).
The first activity was the celebration of THE EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES on the 26th September 2013. Here you can see the activity we did at San Gregorio School and which the teacher published in the own blogs:
