This post comes a bit late, but I hope you can enjoy it as the rest that I have written, or even more
I have to say as well that it is the last post we have to make for this subject and, for this reason, I would like to do a little summary about the things I have learnt and I liked the most in this semester.
We started the subject with some content based things that we should now like the difference between phonetics and phonology, the meaning of literacy or the dimensions of literacy, but very soon we went into more practical activities in which we practice by ourselves the things we were learning.
I am sure that all or nearly all of my classmates can remember the “Chocolate cake” video of Michael Rosen, or the different versions of Cinderella (we even created a “map” with our own version), or the storytelling each group in our class created.
We also had some lessons in which we were responsible of creating activities with a QR code, a Glogster or even dress ourselves as one of the characters of Aladdin’s film because some students from a school had to come and we had to teach them some contents using the film.
People can think “well, you were just having fun in your lessons, but you did not learn anything”. And my answer to this is: you really do not know how good is to learn things at the same time as you are having fun with your teacher and your classmates.
I can say now, at the end of the semester, that I have learnt a lot of new things and I am also sure that my classmates and I are full of new resources, techniques, activities, contents and so on to face English Literature in our future lessons with Primary Students.
Just to finish with, I would like to say that my feelings about this last post are very different: on one hand I feel a bit more free now because I have felt a bit stress with all the projects we had to do, not only in this subject, but on the other hand, every time I look into the past (recent past) the things that I remember the most are the good moments I had as I was working on these projects and how many things I can do now that I could not do before.
Thank you very much for visiting!
