THIS IS OWEN TALKING ABOUT HIS FRIENDS.
We have chosen this video because the topic is very attractive for kids. Friends are very important for them and teaching them how to talk about his friends, where does they live, how old are they.. ect. it's a good idea. It's real conversation what makes them to develop their communication and interaction skills. Maybe it's quite difficult to understand him at the begining but if we put it twice it would be easier for our children.
The website gives us some activities to do pre/while/post listening requiring some information which appear on the video that could be a guide for us to catch some ideas about how to work this topic.

THE PRINCESS AND THE DRAGON
Children love storytelling and stories about princess and princes, that's why we have chosen this activity. It's very interactive, children can se what it's happening, can hear it too and we can give them the support of the written story. With this kind of activities we are developing their imatination and creativity.
As the activitiy before, the website also gives us some exercises depending on the level of our students to practice the vocabulary, to enhance the motivation before listening/watching the story and setting knowledge.
