What did Santa bring you?

This image is a bit ambiguous. It is interesting to see the opinions of your students: the positive ones will believe  he is the father, the negative ones that he is bringing bad news home. What do you think?

Jobs, Cash, Money

Personally I admired Steve Jobs and I have felt his death deeply. For this reason I watched the Standford discourse with my FCE and I showed them this sentence. Now they are writing their essays, it was a good trigger  (I hope).

Today, a little joke with homonyms… We should have plenty of humour in our classes.

 An English teacher enters to his class. He wants to revise the vocabulary they have already learnt about plants, so he starts asking his students.
- What is the name of the green parts of a plant? – he asks to one of his students.
- Leaves.
- Good. And you, Peter, what’s the name of the outer part of a tree?
- I don’t remember teacher.
- Bark, Peter, bark….- he reminds to his student.
 - Woof! Woof!

Classroom Poster

This image has been living in my computer for more or less two years; I don’t know where I took it. I was looking for a nice way to create a poster with some class rules and I found this.

I really like it because it is fun and different; so I hope you also like it.

By the way, if anyone knows the author, I’ll edit this to give him/her credit.
