|Make a Smilebox greeting|
More than a year ago we started projects with students from N.Zealand. On 26,November we met and talked by Skype. We were very excited to watch their classroom, monster and Cheburashka. They are going to have summer holidays and we are going to have winter holidays! We live in different hemispheres but we have the same favourite things such as ice-cream or pets.

October,30. Late night. We are speaking with students from Bob Greenberg's class, Terry Smith's class from the USA and then with the teacher of Livewires Carolyn Knight from New Zealand.
It was an exciting evening!
You see the flowers on the slides. We see snow on the ground at our place.
Speaking with our friends makes us feel happy. It warms our hearts. Our friendship makes the snow melt.

We started the project with the translation of the parts description.
Then students divided into small groups and began making the parts.
I’m an English teacher so I teach some classes. There were two 6th grade classes that made the monster. We had been making it for 6 lessons. There was much rubbish in the classroom. Everybody asked “What are you doing? What is it?” Every time I told about the project.
The monster is very beautiful.

October,5 is a day in our country when teachers are given honour to.Students and parents give flowers, cards and handmade souvenires to teachers.
This year our students were extraordinary. They invited all the teachers in one of the classroom on the third floor and asked to look through the window.
So we saw a big heart wich consisted of our students.
After the third lesson teachers became students and students(of 10-11 grades) became teachers. We had badges with our first names on them as Tanya (not Tatyana Ivanovna) Larisa, Natasha and so on. We attended lessons as students.
After the lessons we became teachers again (students asked us).
It was really exciting. Upsidedown day!
Do you have such holidays in your country, school?

Sometimes I try some unusual techniques to make my lessons interesting.
We study animals and parts of the body.
Firstly, students take paints and choose their favorite color.
Secondly, they put a drop of paint into the sheet of paper and shake it.
Finally, they imagine an animal and describe it.
Everybody was excited to do the task.
The marks were great too.

We invite you to participate in our project about toys and games.
We decided to start the project with our friend Livewires from New Zealand.
We think that this project will help students to learn about toys and games of their parents (grandparents). They will be able to learn what toys and games children play around the World.
