  • Séquence de Isabelle Beaubreuil (Ac. Limoges) : CAN / CAN'T
    "Voici un travail que je propose en 6e dans le but de travailler l’expression de la capacité et l’incapacité avec CAN/CAN’T.
    Il s’agit de ma première séance de cours axée sur le travail du vocabulaire.
    Je donne la diapo 1 du powerpoint en version papier aux élèves puis ils doivent retrouver les images correspondantes (PDF)
    (images issues d’Enjoy 6e et de So English 6e).
    Une fois ce travail corrigé, j’introduis ”CAN” et ”CAN’T” (à partir d’images d’Enjoy English 6e).
    Voici un lien vers de petites applis que j’ai créées pour favoriser l’apprentissage de ce vocabulaire: http://learningapps.org/display?v=pxf6szqck16
    Pour la fin de séquence je me suis amusée à expliquer à quoi sert CAN et CAN’T sous forme de BD (images issues de la BD Captain Biceps)."

  • If walls could talk sung by Ry Cooder
    "Now, if doors could tell who's turned the knob
    When he's away out on his job
    If cars could tell who's been inside
    And who's been taking you out for a ride
    Ain't you glad [Ain't you glad]...
    Glad that cars don't talk"
