Mog's Christmas by Judith Kerr

On the New Year Eve we want to create a special holiday atmosphere. So why not read a special Christmas book with your children?
Surfing the net I've come across an amazing Sainsbury's Christmas advert about Christmas adventures of a funny cat, Mog by name. This advert was based on Judith Kerr's book "The Mog series".
I think this book is a pleasent reading for children that learns them to be kind.
Let's watch the episode from this lovely book:

Christmas Spirit

Hello, dear friends! The weather was awful this morning - it was raining almost all day and it seemed to me that autumn had returned. 
But one of my students of the fifth grade presented me with this lovely hand-made monkey:)
And I've remembered that Christmas and New Year are on their way. So I decided to surf the net and find some interesting things connected with Christmas for my lessons. I came across a wonderful site full of interesting information which certainly help to make lessons more interesting and the process of learning English more exciting and easier.At this site you'll find crosswords and word-games, texts for reading and videos,  you can listen to your favourite songs and do activities that improve your skills. And all this information is about Christmas!:)  By the way it'll help you to create the atmosphere of holidays.

Events: The International Tea Day.

 What can be better than a cup of hot tea in a frosty winter evening? Tea is one of the most favourite beverages on the planet. And today is the International Tea Day. It's not a day - off and this day is mostly celebrated in countries which produce tea. 
 It is believed that tea as a beverage discovered by the  second Chinese Emperor Shen Nung  about  2737 BC, when the Emperor dropped the leaves of tea tree into the cup with hot water. Is it possible to imagine that now we drink the same tea, which the Chinese Emperor tasted about 5 thousand years ago!
 But when I think about tea, the British as a nation of real tea drinkers, come to my mind.
 And here is a short trip to a brief history of British afternoon tea ( the video was taken from FollowThatBug on the youtube channel)

Events: International Day of Children's Broadcasting.

Hello, dear friends! Yesterday there was a special day for all children in the whole world - the International Day of Children's Broadcasting.
It was established at the initiative of the Children's Fund of the United Nations (UNICEF) in April 1994 in the city of Cannes.
More than a hundred countries of the world, thousands of central, regional and municipal television channels and radio stations provide their air time to show children's television and radio shows. So it's a special time for children when they can meet their favourite characters.
I started to recollect the best channel for children and Disney Channel came to my mind at once. For me it's really the best. I grew up on Disney movies and cartoons and I still adore watching its films and cartoons.
Let's remember the amazing and thoughtful quotes from our favourite Disney movies

 To my mind Disney is the best channel for the whole family and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks so, because everyone is a child deep in his/her soul;)
Offer you to watch episodes from one of my favourite Disney films "Good Luck, Charlie!"
