This is the mail I received from Prof. N Soleil. She liked our blog very much and is inviting me to see other presentations from other specialists.
As you can see, our blog is becoming popular!
Stella :-)

Naome Soleil has sent you a message on British Columbia Literacy.

Hello Stella,
That's a great blog you included on your profile for the BC Literacy Forum. If you haven't already listened to the Webcasts, there are 3 I think would be of interest to you. The presentation by Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis is a joint classroom project that also incorporates international understanding. elderbob and Mark Hawkes also gave interesting presentations on uses of the new technology.
Keep in touch with the Forum and good luck in your work with students in South America.

1- Read this dialogue carefully:

Planning a Party

(two neighbors talking)
Martha:...What horrible weather today. I'd love to go out, but I think it will just continue raining.
Jane:Oh, I don't know. Perhaps the sun will come out later this afternoon.
Martha:I hope you're right. Listen, I'm going to have a party this Saturday. Would you like to come?
Jane:Oh, I'd love to come. Thank you for inviting me. Who's going to come to the party?

Martha:Would you? That would be great!
Jane:I'll make lasagna!
Martha:That sounds delicious! I know my Italian cousins are going to be there.
Martha:No, I don't think so. Just a chance to get together and have fun.
Jane:I'm sure it'll be lots of fun.
Martha:But I'm going to hire a clown!

Libertango to revise vocabulary!

I found this great video. Let's revise some vocabulary from our last lesson. Can you find
* any parts of the body?
* any special clothes to dance tango?
* any verbs?
* other expressions from our last lesson?
Remember to read previous posts not to repeat information!
Everybody Is Doing It by Benjamin Zephaniah
(from 'Wicked World')
In Hawaii they Hula
They Tango in Argentina
They Reggae in Jamaica
And they Rumba down in Cuba,
In Trinidad and Tobago
They do the Calypso
And in Spain the Spanish
They really do Flamenco.

In the Punjab they Bhangra
How they dance Kathak in India
Over in Guatemala
They dance the sweet Marimba,
Even foxes dance a lot
They invented the Fox Trot,
In Australia it's true
They dance to the Didgeridoo.

In Kenya they Benga
They Highlife in Ghana
They dance Ballet all over
And Rai dance in Algeria,
They Jali in Mali
In Brazil they Samba
And the girls do Belly Dancing
In the northern parts of Africa.

Everybody does the Disco
From Baghdad to San Francisco
Many folk with razzamataz
Cannot help dancing to Jazz,
They do the Jig in Ireland
And it is really true
They still Morris dance in England
When they can find time to."

This poem was taken from:

How many different styles of dances can you find in the poem? Can you dance them all in Argentina? Have you ever taken dancing lessons? Can you dance any?
I'm eager to read your posts!
