Bleak House: an audio book!

Students of class II H of the school "L. Da Vinci - O. Nucula" in Terni created an audio book of the Novel "Bleak House" written by Charlse Dickens.
This activity was part of the "BFG: Books for Friends are Great" etwinning project.
The pupils chose to read this novel and after having read it in small groups they created storyboards using the app  http://www.storyboardthat.com/ to let their French friends read and enjoy the book.
French pupils did the same with another book "Deadly Jobs".
After the storyboards Italian students also created an audio book using spark.adobe.com.
The book is not perfect, there are both spelling and pronunciation mistakes, but the students had the chance of reading, creating storyboards and also practicing their reading skills.

Here is the result.

2. each group decided what kind of bard game they wanted to created;
3. they formulated the questions using the photocopy used for the EU webquest some weeks earlier;
4. they created the game using cardboards and we worked together with the teacher of Art:
5. the games have been shared in the twinspace of the project in etwinning so that even the other students can play and learn having fun!

Bleak House: the storyboards!

Students of class II H of the school "L. Da Vinci-O. Nucula" in Terni read a children version of Bleak House written by Charles Dickens as an activity for the etwinning project "B. F. G. - Books for Friends are Great".
They worked in pairs or small groups and read a chapter of the novel each. After reading they created a storyboard on paper with the most important event of the chapter they have read.
Once they had the paper storyboard ready they used the app storyboardthat to create their own storyboard online.
It was a long and quite demanding work for them but they were engaged and did a great job.
Here is the result.

Let's celebrate EU 60!





French and Italian students celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome with a Skype sessions some days ago.



The students are involved in the etwinning project "Let's play EU 60" and they are working on the European Union since September 2016.

To celebrate this event we decided to meet, even if only virtually, and talk about school, free time and Europe during the English class. We couldn't talk for too long because both schools had also other classes.




Before the meeting students had the chance to think about the questions they would have asked in this shared doc.






Finally we met and even though we had some technical problems we solved them and we could talk and meet: it was a wonderful experience and a great way of celebrating EU 60!





We also voted for the best logo for our etwinning project during this week and we chose among the following:




And the winner is ...


Camille's logo! 



Congratulations!
