Interesting resources

  Hello, everyone. I have found some interesting resources for the English classroom which are very useful for inclusion: I love science and experiments so let me recommend : You will find very complete units with quiz games (kahoot) included. The above is a sample. Tinycards.duolingo is another web page to go through everyday  And if you like to make artists of your children , let me recommend  The videos of this artist drawing with his children are very encouraging and all children participate. The most important thing is to participate or as they say "to have fun". No arts books needed, but very surprising results. I hope you find them of use. Ascensión Vítores

Thinking routines

  Hello, everyone! "Project Zero" is from Harvard's Graduate School for Education, and this webpage has a whole list of Thinking Routines.  Look, for example, at an image of the pdf that you can download for one of my personal favourites: See-Think-Wonder: The PDFs are free, so I'm planning on downloading them all so that I have a folder on my computer that I can go to when I need inspiration or a change of routine. I thought that you may find them useful, as well! Have a great day! Jessica Church

Five steps to an inclusive classroom

This is a short and visual video which give us tips to make our classroom inclusive and help ALL OUR STUDENTS to be successful learners. Beliefs set the direction. Social and emotional learning. Learn together. Reduce barriers to success. Use what we know about how brains grow.

We all are different and that's cool!

Cole Blakeway is a boy who considers himself different and he's so happy because he thinks being different is awesome. Each of us are special and unique and we are perfect  and happy just the way we are. He says It is also great to have a "different" friend. A great and funny video to reflect on diversity and inclusion in our classes and in our lives.

Self-care for Educators

  More than one of you have mentioned "emotional strength", "emotional challenge", and "physical challenge" when expressing your doubts and fears when addressing inclusion and diversity in the classroom.   I don't think that's surprising--with all of the pressures that we have as educators (and people--we're also spouses, parents, athletes....!) it can be hard to find a balance.  (Says the mom of three who is correcting tasks and writing in a forum at 18.40 in the evening on a Sunday... ha!)  I'll share with all of you some ideas for Self-Care, and then I'm moving away from my computer and going for a walk with my family....

The Food Wheel project

    I include here the link to a project I did with students in Year 3: "The Food Wheel" when I was teaching Sciences in Toro, two years ago. It is a project and we worked in cooperative groups doing different tasks in the bilingual class. This is what I published in the school blog with the pictures and everything, although it is in Spanish.  This is the link: Esther González Cabrera
