End of the Term

We are almost finished. I hope you have had fun this term and you feel like you have learned a lot. I have loved teaching you and I hope to see you in January. Have a great break and enjoy the snow. See you at the party!

Please give me a copy of your vacation posters and I'll put them on the wall in the classroom. Now you can use the links on the right to practice our song, grammar, reading, or listening (I can give you headphones for the song and listening practice). Also, I added two more holiday songs if you want to learn them in English. If you want to practice typing or vocabulary with the picture dictionary and you don't remember how to open the programs, ask a teacher to help you.

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock.

Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring.

Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun.

Now the jingle hop has begun.

We are going to have 2 weeks for winter break. During the two weeks, I'm going to take some time off and relax. I'm going to go to Michigan to visit my family for Christmas. We are going to buy presents for my nieces and we are going to eat some good food. When I return to Chicago, I'm going to see my friends. Maybe we will meet for coffee or go to a movie. I'm also going to celebrate New Year's Eve with my friends, but I'm not going to go to a big party. On January 4th and 5th, I'm going to help the school register new students and I'm going to start teaching the new Level 2 class on January 6th.

Now, write about your plans for the winter break. Please tell us about what you are going to do. You can also tell us about any holidays you are going to celebrate and the people you are going to see. When you are finished, post your writing on the blog and then practice English with the links on the right. If you want to practice typing or vocabulary with the picture dictionary, ask for help.
