English Class second graders practiced using their English first thing after the summer holidays by participating in a search for friends who had certain likes. What fun it was to circulate among classmates and ask questions!
Ms. Kati read two lovely books about accepting differences to the second graders. Afterward the pupils engaged in a lively discussion about the books and Ms. Kati was particularly pleased at how well the pupils used their English.
Another exercise was a partner activity of “Roll and Read”. Partners took turns rolling a die and then read a sentence or short paragraph out loud to the other. (Practicing the text had been a homework assignment the day before.)
