Halloween Songs: Nightmare before Christmas & Monster Mash



Boys and girls of every age
wouldn't you like to see something strange/
Come with us and you will see,
this our town of Halloween
This is Halloween, this is Halloween,
pumpkins scream in the dead of night
This is Halloween, everybody make a scene,
trick or treat till the neighbours come and die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream,
in this town of Halloween
I am the one hiding under your bed,
teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
I am the one hiding under your stairs,
fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair
This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween
In this town we call home,
everyone hail to the pumpkin song
In this town, don't we love it now,
everybody's waiting for the next surprise
Round that corner, then,
hiding in the trash cans,
something's waiting now to pounce and how you'll..
Scream, this is Halloween,
red and black and slimy green,
Aren't you scared?
Well, that's just fine,
say it once, say it twice,
take a chance and roll the dice,
ride with the moon in the dead of night
Everybody scream, everybody scream,
in our town or Halloween.......

My homeroon 4ºESO A together with 3ºA-B and 4ºB
Today we have enjoyed an awesome day at the beach. We practiced P.E. at Burriana´s beach in Málaga with the teachers Alejandro Molina, MªÁngeles Malagón, Pepe Llinares and myself. We shared many games together and enjoyed typical Mediterranean food in the "Chiringuitos" (restaurants by the beach). What an excellent way to practice a class of P.E. at Lux Mundi School.
Besides, you all were great!! It was a real pleasure to enjoy it with you all!

"Wish Clauses" Oraciones desiderativas / "Regrets"

Las oraciones desiderativas expresan un deseo. Se pueden formar de dos maneras:
  • Con el verbo WISH (desearía o me gustaría, si el sujeto es "I" se puede traducir por "Ojalá"). 
  • Con la expresión IF ONLY tiene el mismo significado y se puede traducir por "Ojalá"(sea cual sea su sujeto) o "Si al menos". IF ONLY is similar to I WISH but stronger.
 WISH/ if only + Past Simple(-ed/did)   [Refers to a  present situation - UNHAPPY speaker]
He wishes he had time to go shopping. ( Le gustaría tener tiempo para ir de compras)
If only I had a new mobile phone. (Me gustaría tener un nuevo móvil) o (Ojalá tuviera un ....)
WISH / if only + Past Perfect(had ..-ed) [Expresses REGRET about a past action]
I wish I had bought the school yearbook ( Ojalá hubiera comprado el anuario del Colegio)
If only it hadn´t been so cold! (Ojalá no hubiera hecho tanto frío.)
Do you wish you had bought it sooner? (¿Te gustaría haberlo comprado antes?)

 

WISH / if only + COULD/WOULD + base form [Expresses DESIRE for something to happen in the future]
I wish I could go to the shopping centre. (Ojalá pudiera ir al centro comercial)
If only Mr.Smith would help me.  (Ojalá me ayude el señor Smith)


SHOULD HAVE + Past Participle (-ed/3rd IrrVbs)
[Expresses regret or criticise someone´s behaviour in the past.
I didn´t know about Tom´s illness. You should have told me (No sabía de la enfermedad de Tom. Deberías habermelo dicho)
Sorry - I shouldn´t have said that. It was a stupid thing to say. (Lo siento- no debería haber dicho eso. Fue una estupidez decirlo.)

MIND MAPS - Mind Maps - MiNdS MaPs - How to improve your vocabulary?

Hey students!
As I told  you today in class, "MIND MAPS" is one of the best ways to learn new vocab. Why?? Because "Mind Maps" help you remember and they are visual.
You must think of a single concept/word and create it from scratch.
Here are some webpages that let you create yours online. However, there´s nothing better than PEN and PAPER!! COLOURFUL MARKERS, HIGHLITERS...and enjoy it in your class notebook.
As I usually say... the more you write the better!!
Enjoy!
Mr.García

Assistant teacher says Goodbye - We´ll miss you Carsta ;o)

-->
Hello everyone,

My name is Carsta Schulze. I live in Potsdam, Germany and study English and Spanish philology at the University of Potsdam to become a teacher for secondary schools. Potsdam is a beautiful town, which is situated near Berlin counts about 160.000 inhabitants. In order to improve my Spanish language skills, gain work experience, and get familiar with the Spanish school system I applied for an internship at Lux Mundi School.
For the last five weeks I have now been doing an internship at Lux Mundi and I have to admit that it has been an incredible experience for me so far. Since my first school day I have immediately felt integrated. Mostly, I assist during Alejandro Molina’s or Álvaro García’s English classes, but they have also given me the opportunity to teach some classes on my own. Due to the students’ active participation, good behavior, and interest in the subject it has been a pleasure to teach them. On Mondays and Wednesdays I usually attend the German classes and help the students to improve their German language skills. Even though I spend most of the time with the English Department in secondary school, I regularly practice with the primary school students for the KET exam and listening comprehension.
Carsta Schulze
One of my highlights was when we went to Granada to see the theater play “Frankenstein”.  I enjoyed it very much and from a teacher’s point of you I can say that it was easily comprehensible and entertaining due to lots of funny scenes and the musical performance.
If I had to describe the school with two words, I would say that it is tolerant and welcoming because I was welcomed very
Carsta with Diego, Samuel, Mané y Valeria (2nd Bach - Science)
warmly and accepted by both the students and the teachers. I enjoy coming to this school every day and when walking along the hall both the students and the teachers always greet me enthusiastically and smile at me, which makes my day.

Thank you all for making my stay so enjoyable and unforgettable!

I will miss you!

Carsta

Causative Case - Have/Get+Sth+PastParticiple

LOS VERBOS CAUSATIVOS - The Causative Case 
My parents are having the walls painted

We use "have / get + object + past participle (-ed / 3rd C IrrVbs)" when we arrange for someone else to do a service for us. If we want to identify the person doing the service, we use "BY ...." (by Peter).

Examples:
My parents are going to have the house painted
Have you had your computer repaired yet?
I want to get my hair cut this afternoon.
I'm getting my hair cut!! WOW!
My mobile crashed yesterday, so I had it checked. ( Se me colgó el movil ayer, asi que hice que lo miraran/comprobaran)

In summary, "Expresan acciones que se encargan a alguien o que las hacen por ti". Tiene un poco de sentido pasivo ya que el sustantivo que va en medio recibe la acción del verbo que va en participio, pero se suele traducir en voz activa. GET es más informal que HAVE por lo que su uso en la calle o por la gente es más común.

Acierta con mi cole.es : Colegio Lux Mundi - Granada

Un aspecto esencial en la evolución de un niño/a es la elección de su Colegio. Es calidad, tradición, educar en valores y es una libertad que todo alumno debería tener.

    · El sentirnos unidos e inmersos en un proyecto común nos anima a luchar por nuestros fines.
    · Trabajamos con espíritu de equipo. Nadie puede nada solo, por eso es necesaria la colaboración entre todos los estamentos que integramos el Colegio: dirección, profesores, padres, alumnos, personal administrativo, y no docente.
    · Somos Colegio Cambridge - "Cambridge School" tanto en preparación durante el horario escolar como centro examinador autorizado.
    · El centro de nuestra acción educativa es sin duda el alumno que ha de formarse y desarrollarse en todos los niveles: físico, intelectual, moral, social, religioso, idiomas... hasta alcanzar su plena responsabilidad. Siendo siempre conscientes de que deben tomar sus decisiones partiendo de una libertad responsable que los pone al servicio de los demás.
Miremos al futuro, eligiendo un Colegio con garantías que inculque en nuestros alumnos los mejores valores y la mejor preparación.
