Computer Time

There were some problems with creating Google accounts. The kids didn't remember their accounts created at the Summer Camp. We spent a lot of time on this routine. I hope next Saturday there will be no technical problems like that.

Some kids managed to publish their comments to various posts.

Autumn School Holidays

There were some problems with Google products because of the change of the Internet provider. That's why we didn't have any possibility to publish anything in the blog.

The kids are free now - free from lessons and activities.

The last day at Access turned to be marvelous - Halloween sketches were terrific.

Halloween PowerPoint

Several kids have started to create presentations. They downloaded magnificent images and stories. I saw Anya drawing her own picture. I liked it, though unfinished.

The English Dictionary

Look up the meaning and the spelling of the English words in the Merriam-Webster (American English) Dictionary.

Preparing for Halloween

Hi there, everybody! I just wanna congratulate you on Halloween, the event which is coming up and promise to be the most exciting day in our Access school life. I believe that all children will take part in all activities we can provide them and will be eager to prepare for Halloween.

First Lessons of Interactive English

I hope that the kids liked the first lessons of Interactive English very much. They have had the brilliant opportunity to speak English.
In the first lesson "Getting Acquainted" we spoke about fibs and facts in our life. It was really funny. "Having eaten snails or grasshopers": can it be true?!
In the second lesson (devoted to Homecoming) the kids read the definitions and matched them with the words, like "pep rally".
They watched Michael's photos of his Homecoming.
Almost everybody tried to speak English. Nobody kept silent.
At the end of each lesson we played the ball game on the learnt vocabulary.
