Pete, the cat
book by Eric Litwin
was dancing on the street
in his brand new white boots. He loved them so much, he sang his song.
And while he was singing, another black cat passed by and asked him:
I love your shoes, may I borrow your shoes?
And -you all know Pete, the cat, he is kind and nice- he gave his shoes away, but : Oh, no!!!
He stepped in a large field of...lemons.
What color did it turn his shoes?
But Pete doesn't cry. Goodness no! He keeps walking along, singing and dancing, whatever comes in his way.
one topic in our teacher training workshop last week was 'non verbal expressions and communication'.
And, with all the exercises I had chosen I was just hoping, my kids would 'show' and 'live' how important this topic is in their presentations the next day,
They obviously, didn't disappoint me.
So, I took it a step further:
We did an improvisation on the spot, first of all inspired by the teachers who were joining the workshop.
We were pleased and thrilled to see my smallest students come up stage, say a sentence they had neither practiced nor thought of before coming here, and act it out. And of course, with a 5 year old showing this much courage, the moms couldn't just sit and watch, so we had a stage setting with kids, moms and teachers.
Would you like to see more about our teacher training, or about our show? Keep tuned.
Mom and Dad went shopping. Little Blue went to look for Little Yellow.
Little Yellow went to look for Little Blue.
"Hey" they found each other. And they hugged...and...
...they turned green.
They went to the park to play, and all their friends hugged
They all turned into a beautiful rainbow.
....................show will be continued!
Once upon a time,
in a little blue house, there lived Little Blue.
Next door, in a little yellow house, there lived his best friend, Little Yellow
They were Best Friends, and above this, they had many many friends:

Last year I held my first Online Teacher Training. I am very grateful to everyone who joined, from literally 'all over the world'. After relaunching this 2 times I got so many requests for an ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING, that I put this together and again THANK YOU all so much for requesting this.
We have one more week to go and I think I can honestly say:
It has been just great!
In this advanced module we covered everything I can think of~4 skills of learning a language. No, not that boring stuff of worksheets or cramming. Real fun and engaging activities for reading, writing, speaking and listening.
It was interesting to see that YES! There were no beginners questions anymore, and everyone is heading forward. I think it has been quite intense for some of you, because it is so different and I am honored and really happy that each one of you is saying:
I try this! It is new and different, and I TRY IT!
If you would like to join one of these trainings, let me know and I will keep you up to date, when a relaunch is up.
