We try to learn the numbers up to 10 in the languages of our partners . ( Class F- 12 years )
We create some cards with the numbers.
At the top of the cards the number was written in one of the languages of partners
and under of that the number was written in Greek language.
In the end, we put the cards per language in folders
which were have made by the children. Some of these folders used
for educational activities and some of them offered to the partners.
The lesson was planned for D class,(November 2014), by English teacher Iatropoulou Fani, to be carried out in a two-hour session.The major aim was to revise numbers. Although learners had mastered counting from one to ten during the previous school year and despite the fact that they did well in oral production of numbers from eleven to one hundred, which were dealt with in the previous unit , there was still considerable confusion regarding spelling, especially as far as numbers from eleven to twenty were concerned. Therefore, students had to be provided with a chance to write them down once again,yet not in the abstract way of mathematical calculations that the book exercises adopted, but in a more concrete way of connecting them with the world around us. At the same time they would be given the chance to expand their vocabulary.
Α few works of children
The children of B class worked in small groups to observe the number, the shape in buildings, and measure the distance from church to school with the help of small squares which were painted by them on the sidewalk outside of the school yard . Each child counted his steps until he reach the front door of the school. They took pictures. Then, they went back in class, the children used this data to compare the results of their work.
