    Travelling through time wequence

    This is a very interesting and motivating sequence, The colours, the pictures and the songs make the students wish to participate. The only activity I amm not sure that corresponds to the level of this class is the close test which I believe has a higher level than the average student of this class.

    Thank you

    Efi, thanks for your comment!! :) I admit that I am new to LAMS and have a lot to learn.

    The cloze test you are referring to is a resource provided by photodentro and is included in the interactive book of the 6th Grade. I will agree with you that it is a little difficult for most 6th graders but not for all of them, as the level of English of many students is quite high. However, my intention was (and still is) to include two optional activities in this sequence and the cloze test was supposed to be one of them but unfortunately I didn' t know how to make it optional using the Ροή tool. I want to learn more about the tools and how to use them.

    Thanks again for taking the time to take a look and comment on my sequence :)

    Nice try!!!

    A very nice way to teach this particular unit of  6th grade English. It certainly needs a two-hour session to cover all this stuff.Your sequence is well structured, though and clear enough.

    Congratulations!

    It is a really great lesson that can be easily used in class. It is very colourful, something that students like, and it has a big variety of exercises. Good Job! ! !

    Travelling through time

    I really like it and I find it very adequate material for my (usually) 10 to 11 y old students.
    Great job!

    Interesting lesson

    It is really a great job! This lesson offers students material for study and a variety of activities for practice. The lesson is well organized and the differentiation in activities makes it very interesting. Finally the use of pictures, the song and videos motivates students to participate in the class!
    Congratulations!!!
