6th graders wrote about themselves

During  the first term of the year,  students have been writing about themselves on the computers. They used different applications to do these presentations:


Word, for the personal profile

kidspiration,for I like, I don't like

Inspiration, for the family tree

and finally, Time Liner for their daily routine.


By clicking on these links, you will be able to see some of the powerpoint presentations students did.


Very soon , we will be talking to an expert on penguins who lives in the Antarctica for three months every year to do research.


We will work on this with Liliana and María José. And just to get ready, I show you a Powerpoint Presentation on Antarctica. It is multilingual and you will learn how to say some words in many languages. Do you find any of them similar to Spanish?

and I show you this link so that you get to know what Jane Cook is going to speak about.

we will do a webcast in which you will hear Jane's presentation in very simple English and then you will have to write a report on it.


If you don't understand English very well, you can try the Spanish version.


Vocabulary necessary to understand Jane's presentation:

make nests- nesting- lay their eggs-
iced sea- penguins walk a long way-
 colony of penguins. guano.rack tent

2feet tall.
feathers. they are not soft .

Class 7 “D” meets with Skipper Rich Wilson

As we have already mentioned on Friday 13 July we had a webcast with Skipper Rich Wilson of Marblehead, Massachusetts. We were also joined by Lorraine Leo ( the moderator ) in Boston, Carolina, an English  teacher in Bogotá, Colombia , John Cummings, a researcher in the University of Tennessee and Tanja, a teacher from Riga, Latvia. The webcast was scheduled for 4 PM , Buenos Aires time. I set up two of the computers with microphones and logged into the Discovere Virtual Classroom so that the students could participate with text, voice chat and a shared whiteboard.  Mrs. Amarilla, our foreign language supervisor joined us for this webcast.Former Boston school teacher, Rich Wilson spoke about his trips that he has taken on his trimarans, The Great American I and II. During his voyages he connects with thousands of schoolchildren across the world through his web site: and newspapers. He also spoke about his upcoming voyage, The Vendee Globe. Rich said that he will travel in the Vendee Globe, a race around the world alone, nonstop!! As Rich spoke, I translated so that everybody could understand him, though both Mrs Amarilla and I realized that students were able to grasp the meaning of many of the things that Rich was speaking about. After his presentation, the kids asked some very interesting questions which I will transcribe below. Rich complimented the children on their English pronunciation.  The kids were also congratulated by the audience abroad for their participation and excellent questions. Special thanks to Mrs. Amarilla, the supervisor, for all of her assistance and for the fine job that Class 7 "D"did in representing the children  of Primera Junta School in Buenos Aires across the global community.  Also thanks to Skipper Rich Wilson for sharing his exciting and inspiring voyages with us and to Geoff Kaye for providing the Discovere virtual classroom for our meeting.This is the link to the recorded webcast, I hope you enjoy it!!!  A very proud teacher,

Mrs. Gabriela Rosso
