:: RT: Doing English Homework ▶ http://goo.gl/GH2mV2 ◀ Learning English Vocabulary in Context with a 3rd grader, in primary school in Norway | #Education #Pedagogy #PrimarySchool #Norway


When teachers want their students to learn English in the ESL classroom, they push forward the memorization methond of isolated word, in this case: building, straw, stone, castle, with.

Why should students learn isolated words when they can learn full sentences using storytelling / the resources we can find on internet.


Original Homework: Isolated New English words - Vocabulary

building - bygning

straw - sugerør

stone - stein

castle - borg

with - med

knocking down - rive ned

can't catch us - kan ikke ta oss


Modified Homework: English Vocabulary with Norwegian and Spanish translation

building - bygning - edificio

straw - sugerør - pajilla / caña

stone - stein - piedra

castle - borg / slott - castillo / fortaleza

with - med - con

to knock down - å rive ned - demoler

he/she can't catch us - han/hun kan ikke ta oss - no puede alcanzarnos

Original Instruction: You can learn at least six of them.

My comments: Why not learn all these words using digital storytelling?
