These are useful for whole class lessons. *Laminate for durability *The alphabet book can also be used for ABC songs to make learning interactive and fun.Tha mi'n dochas gum bi iad feumail dhuibh!

St Andrews/Scotland Talking Tub Planner

St Andrews/Scotland Talking Tub Planner

A planning grid to support teachers in creating a St Andrews Day/Scotland themed Talking Tub. A Talking Tub is a collection of materials that are designed to stimulate talking and thinking to support responsive child led planning. This consultation can then be recorded in a Talking and Thinking Floorbook™. This approach can be used in early years and primary settings and can be easily differentiated. Talking Tubs should be tailored to suit your individual setting and individual interests of the children so we have intentionally left these as editable documents The planning grid identifies the lines of enquiry that lie behind the experiences, ideas for 3D and 2D objects and photos and the big questions or possible lines of development that may come out of the discussion.

Scotland on Film/ Alba air an SgaIlean

A resource produced in partnership with Education Scotland, Scottish Book Trust and LGBT Youth Scotland. The activities in this resource are designed to encourage educators and young people to explore Scotland through film, focusing specifically on two central themes: Language and Identity. From classic cinema through to modern day representations of Scotland on film, the resource touches on history, myth, and culture. It also uses film with accompanying Scots language texts, encouraging learners to explore the language in historical and modern contexts. The sections on identity cover many aspects of what it can mean to be Scottish from personal identity, including LGBT, to rural and city living. Not yet Into Film?

2 videos on lingusitics for advanced classes

2 videos on lingusitics for advanced classes

1) Fascinating 8 min. video from BBC horizon. It demonstrates how our brain processes colours differently depending on our native language!! 2) The first video on this blog, 'The Stuff of Thought,' is a 17 min. video about languages and how they shape our views on the world. In English, but you can add subtitles in 28 languages to hit additional lesson objectives. Fascinating but long, I would not recommend showing this in its entirety.

deich botal buidhe - ten green bottles nursery rhyme Gàidhlig

deich botal buidhe - ten green bottles nursery rhyme Gàidhlig

’S e goireas a tha seo a dh’fhoadadh a bhith feumail ann an sgoil-àraich no clas a h-aon. Chleachd mise e airson an t-òran ‘deich botal buidhe’ a sheinn leotha. (an aon rud ri ten green bottles ach sa Ghàidhlig!) Tha àireamhachd ann a’ dol air ais is air adhart agus chòrd e rin fheadhainn bheaga na botail fhèin a ghluasad.Tha deich botal buidhe a’ crodhadh air a’ bhalla,Tha deich botal buidhe a’ crochadh air a’ bhalla,Ach ma thuiteas aonan air falbh, cha bhiodh ach naoi air fhàgail [thoirt 10 air falbh]Tha naoi botalan buidhe, a’ crochadh air a’ bhalla.
