Music in our life: Here comes the snow;)

Today is a very lovely day, my dear friends! Winter has presented us with snow!:)

Snow makes whiteness where it falls.
The bushes look like popcorn-balls.
The places where I always play
Look like somewhere else today.
by Marie Louise Allen

And snow brings a good mood, reminding us about future holidays. So let's sing a lovely song!;)

Holidays: Thanksgiving Day/Свята: День Подяки.

Thanksgiving day - Фото 7751/9
On November 27 people in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving Day. This is one of the most popular festivals in the country. Thanksgiving Day was first celebrated in 1621 by English colonists who lived in Plymouth Colony. Previous winter was very severe and promised hunger for the new colonists. Then Governor William Bradford decided to raise the spirits of his people and organized the first Thanksgiving Day. This holiday gethered together the British colonists and their neighbours, the Indians, with the help of who the Plymouth Colony survived the first winter of starvation. The Puritans brought to this festival a deep religious meaning - they saw it as a way to thank God for mercy.
Thanksgiving Day became a national holiday after the relevant decree of the first President George Washington in 1789. 
Thanksgiving Day is associated with a number of traditions that Americans honor. 
All family members  go to church and after the service get together at  the holiday dinner.

The second most important attribute of Thanksgiving  Day is a turkey. At the first festival the colonists and the Indians roasted and ate together four turkeys, shot down in a nearby forest. Since then, the turkey and Thanksgiving Day became synonymous.

The third attribute of the holiday are parades and fun.

English for young learners: Future Simple/Англійська для наймолодших:Майбутній час

En:The easiest way for young learners to remember the  Future Simple is singing a funny song "A Hunting We Will Go". This lovely song will also help to teach kids the names of animals and words that rhyme with them.
Let's sing together;)

Ua:Найлегший спосіб для молодших школярів запам'ятати Майбутній час - це заспівати пісню "На полювання ми підемо"("A Hunting We Will Go"). Ця чудова пісня також допоможе навчити дітей назвам тварин та словам, що римуються з ними.
Давайте заспіваємо разом;)

Our school life:Halloween exhibition/Наше шкільне життя: Виставка на Хеллоуін.
