Subject: The holidays

Ther holidays are about starting: In a side is good: there is rest, etc, but in other side is bad because I don't see my friends and the teachers. To me the teachers are our friends, and the English teacher is one of them.

Teacher, do you like holidays?

Good Bye, teacher!

Subject: Re: The holidays

Hi, Patrícia! The Easter holidays start in two weeks. Teachers and students sometimes need a rest from school.

Yes, it's nice to have holidays. I love them!    But I don't always rest. I sometimes work too much.

Of course teachers are students' friends! And I'm very happy that you look at me as a friend, Patrícia. Thank you!

Hugs from your English teacher

 

Subject: sorry

Teacher I'm sorry.

I like very much your site but I never go to computer. My father is always working in the computer. But today is a special day. I write an email for you.

Bye-Bye.

I'll be back.

Subject: sorry

Hi, Teresa!

Yes, there was no message from you for a long time (= há muito tempo)!  ;-)  Thanks!

Is it my blog or "our" blog? It's ours, isn't it? 

When your father is working at the computer, why don't you aks him to send a short email? I'm sure he will say "yes"!

Have a nice weekend!

A kiss from your English teacher

 

Subject: homework?!

Hi, Rodrigo!

 
How is the long weekend going?
Is HandyBits already working? If not, why don't you uninstall it and download it again? Maybe it'll solve the problem. I miss your voice emails!
I'm preparing tomorrow's lesson and I think I changed the homework at the last minute, but I didn't write it down. Can you tell me what it was?
TIA (thanks in advance).
See you tomorrow at 8:30 in Estudo Acompanhado.

Sara ( 6ºG)

 

19Feb05
Subject: Re: how are you??

Dear Sara,

Thanks for your message. You weren't able to open the blog page, right? That sometimes happens (= acontece). You need to go back later.
 
It's great that you like the Present Continuous. It's very often used in everyday conversation, you know.
 
Do you think that you understand it well? And do you understand the difference between the S Present and Pres. Continuous? It's not difficult. But you need to pay attention. 
 
Have a nice loooong weekend!
 
A kiss from your English teacher

 

Subject: request (= pedido)

Hi, Susana!

 
Guess what? I listened to (= ouvi) a presentation by an American colleague, Anne Davis, a while ago and I talked (= falei) about your message to me yesterday and my answer you through email as an example of tutoring/mentoring (giving individual help) students online.
 
My question is: can I post your message and my reply/answer to our blog? Is that all right with you?
 
Send me an email and let me know, ok?  :-)
 
Hugs from your English teacher

 

18Feb05
Subject: Hello

Hello, teacher!

How are you?
I`m fine, but I`m not understanding the S.Present and Present Continuos.
I need to talk to you about classes when you can.
Goodbye.
See you Monday.
A kiss from Susana to you

 

17Feb05
Subject: Re: Hello

Dear Susana,

 
It's the difference between Presente do Indicativo (Simple Present) and Forma Progressiva (Present Continuous). SPres. is for habits, routines, things we do normally (every day/week/month/year) and the Pres. Cont. is for things happening (= a acontecer) now, at the moment we are speaking. For example, I am answering your message (something I am doing now), but I don't receive messages form you every day, week or month. Right? Other examples, Susana.
I update (= actualizo) our blog almost every day, but I'm not updating it now. I'm writing to you. 
We have English three times a week, but we're not having English now, are we? However (= no entanto), I am writing in English to you.
My advice (= conselho) is: study the examples we did (= fizemos ) in class, the sentences in Quiz 7 and the correction, and Unit 9 (SB & AB). Remember to read the dialogue about the football game.
This is what you need to know about use (= utilização) of these two tenses (= tempos verbais), when to use one or the other. But then you have to know how to form them, the structure (= estrutura). You need to study that. It's the same for all verbs.
In your message you say "I'm not understanding...". In English it's "I don't understand...", because we can't always translate directly.
Why don't you send me a few examples in Portuguese and English during the weekend? I will help you through email. Is that a good idea?
Susana, remember that there are no classes on Monday.    or   ?
Send me a meesage when you have a problem with English, ok?
A big kiss from your teacher

 

Subject: my message for you

Hi teacher...

I was seeing and listening the messages in our blog.I loved it very much
I know that I am late to write you a message and I'm sorry, but I tried before
to send it to you but it was not possible.
I want also tell you that I did almost all the games and activities on the blog,
the last thing I did was "Fire Works" it was amazing...

Its nice to study like this...

Kisses and hugs

Hi, Bruno!

I'm glad that I finally received this message from you and that you like the
messages in the blog! There are so many this month and from so many
diffferent parts of the world!  :-)

Good for you for doing the activities. Yes, Fireworks is beautiful!

It's very nice to know that you like to study like this. You have made my
day! Thank you!  :-)

I'm going to update the blog with your message in a little while.

See you in class tomorrow at half past eight.

A big kiss from your English teacher

 

Subject: Sorry,teacher

Hello, teacher forgive me, because I don`t write to you.

I know that you worry with me and all the class.
So I`m writing this letter for you can forgive me.

Subject: Re: Sorry,teacher

Hi, Guilherme!

 
What a sweet message! Thank you! It feels good to know that you got (= recebeste) my message in class this morning. 
 
Guilherme, it's because I like my students and worry about them that I say the things that I said (= que eu disse) in class today. I'd like you all to enjoy the blog, see how many teachers are writing to you and take part in the fun. I'm sure you will write a very nice message to my friends one of these days. And how about trying HandyBits? You will love it! And then you can send voice messages to all your friends and family!
 
See you in class tomorrow.

Hi, Rodrigo!

 
I will tell Mrs Weser about your voice email to her and upload it to our blog. Next time, if you like, you can speak directly to Mrs Weser (or any other friend of mine that sends you all a message), but send it to me, all right? I'm sure she would love that.
 
I agree with you that Bahía Blanca looks like a beautiful place. The Municipal Theater looks very nice!
 
See you in class on Thursday!
 
Hugs from your English teacher

 

Subject: about Bahía Blanca

Hello kids,
I thought you might want to see what Bahía Blanca, the city where I
live, is like. Here are some photos of the city. One is the "Paseo de
las Esculturas" one of our parks.It has a long cycle path and teenagers
meet here at weekends.
The second is our Municipal theatre.
Then you have a city street, early in the morning, that is why it is a
bit dark.
The last is our main Plaza or square.

Regards from Argentina

Mrs Weser

This was our first time together, and we enjoyed our meeting vey much !! We also met Joao, Tere's husband, and Pedro and Miguel, their two lovely boys. We spent some days together and shared dinners and outings...we felt sooooooooo happy!!!
 
We loved your country !! We visited Lisbon and Parede, where Tere lives, and then drove to Sintra, Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaça, Batalha, Coimbra, Aveiro, Porto, Viana do Castelo, Braga, Guimaraes, Evora... You must be proud of living in such a beautiful country !!

Dear Leanne, Linda, Daf, Alejandra and Bee,

My 6F students wrote a message for you in class this morning and then Pedro L. was chosen to record it. Click to listen to it! They heard Leanne's and Bee's messages, and saw Bee's Carnival photo taken about 10 years ago! Right, Bee??!!  ;-)

I'd also like to tell you that Rodrigo gave a very good impromptu presentation, mostly in English, for his colleagues and me about his long weekend in Madrid with his parents, sister and godparents. Congrats, Rodrigo! Way to go!

 

10Feb05
Kids,

Yesterday afternoon I gave a presentation online (= fiz uma apresentação na Internet) for a group of English teachers that Mrs Dieu / Bee is working with. I told you about it in class, remember? It's about "our" work with this blog. Everybody liked it very much!

The presentation, called "Have Fun with English!", is on the Internet (link above, on the left). [It takes about 30 seconds to download.] Take a look at it and tell your parents to look at it, too. I'm sure they will like to see your teacher talk about their children's work! I'm so proud of you all! "Thank you all" for making this possible!!!

The day of voice messages!  :-)

What an exciting day this has been! I received 3 voice messages in my mail. One is from my colleague and friend Leanne, in Canada, and it's for you, my dear students! The other two are for me from João Vasco, in 6F. I sent him one, too!

João Vasco also sent a very nice animated song that you all know, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".

Everything is below. Enjoy! I did!!!

Here is João Vasco's first voice email using HandyBits! (Click the icon on the left.)

Hi, kids!

I hope you are having a nice and fun Carnival break / holiday! Well, I'm at home, far away from all the Carnival confusion. I liked Carnival when I was your age, but I don't like it very much today. Maybe I would like Rio de Janeiro Carnaval!!! 

I have a short video to show you! It's about Piodão, a beautiful small village located in a valley (= num vale) surrounded by Serra de Açor (1.340 m), a very high mountain. It's very close to Serra da Estrela (2.000 m), the highest mountain in our country.

I went there with my husband and two sons in August 2003.

Click the picture below and then... be a little patient! It doesn't start immediately.

I'm sure you will enjoy it!

Subject: Great blog!!

Dear  Class 6-F,

 
Congratulations on the great work you did on your class blog.  I loved reading  about what you are learning in your English class and what costumes you will be wearing for Carnival.  I loved the picture of the happy and sad masks and most especially, I loved hearing Rodrigo's voice messages!  Rodrigo, your voice was very clear and strong.  Good work!
 
Your teacher shared your class's beautiful blog with the teachers in her online class who are learning how to use the Internet with their own students.  Seeing your blog will help us learn how to use blogs with our classes.  Miss Teresa is a wonderful teacher, isn't she!  Thank you very much, Class 6-F!  Good Carnival! 
 
Love,
 
Ms. Linda in Kuwait    

 

Teresa,

... 

I really was impressed by your teacher-student blog. Your students' posts reminded me of happy days when I was teaching children only a little older than that in Greece.  They were so open, so enthusiastic, and made me laugh every day. 

Best regards,

Linda

Teresa's intro to her BaW 2005 friends

 

To all my BaW friends who visit this blog in the next few days, these are messages that my 6F class wrote in class this morning during the first period. This was a decision I took on the spur of the moment since it was Study Hour and they had no test ahead!

As an introduction and possible motivation, I told them about yesterday's blog presentation for BaW 2005 by Barbara/Bee Dieu, and also about the presentation I will give next week for Bee's Weblogging group, where I will be talking about our teacher-student blog to teachers from all the world! So... it would be very nice to have some newly-written messages.

I told them that they could write about anything they wanted and could clear any doubts they had. Believe me, there was little real help from me. They found most answers to their doubts with only very small hints from me!

It was very exciting to see how motivated they were, since they hadn't had one of these lessons in some time,  nor had many of them sent me any messages since last June.

I was very pleasantly surprised, because the messages are very cute and quite varied. But... I was in for a second surprise. In class I had told Rodrigo and João Vasco about HandyBits, voice email software that they could download very easily and send voice messages to friends. Well, when I got home around 4 pm this afternoon, I had Rodrigo's very first message in my mailbox. What a treat! But it was also very moving! I had tears in my eyes while listening to it. I must have listened about six times!

Hope you enjoy these messages from my second year EFLers (11 is the average age) as much as I have. Both the messages and Rodrigo's voice mails (a second one has arrived since I started keyboarding all these texts) have made my day!!!

Congratulations, kids! I'm very proud of you! 

P.S. - Messages to my students are very welcome, preferably in simple language that they can understand!

Dear Rodrigo,

This happens very often with bilingual dictionaries (Port-Eng, etc). It's
really not your mistake!

To be "chato", as you mean it, is to be "a pain in the neck"! You never are! :-)

You can send me all the voice and text and messages you want and I will love
each one. I love to hear your lively, happy voice, because I see your
smiling face in front of me.

I have everything in the blog page already. Have you seen it? And I told all
my coleagues in the course about it! I am very proud of you all!  :-)
