Dreamcatcher Making! 12 December

On Wednesday we had a delightful morning and afternoon making dreamcatchers!

IMG_9540

I demonstrated first how to make the netting and then assisted the students to do their own (with some needing more assistance than others!)

Using our box of materials, beads, shells and feathers we then decorated our dreamcatchers, with some beautiful results!

Carlos showed us just one of the many things they can now do with their dreamcatcher…

Previously students have given them as a gift (often to their homestay families!), hung them in their vans before going off traveling, decorated their bags with them, and taken them home as a souvenir of their time in Byron! Or they can use them for their original purpose and simply hang them in their rooms to protect them from bad dreams!

Morning Dreamcatcher Making! 12 December

On Wednesday we made everyone’s favourite – Dreamcatchers!

 

We started off with a wire ring, which we had to wrap, using various bits and pieces from our large box of materials, threads, wools and twine.

The next step then was to make the web part of the dreamcatcher. We watched a video and then I showed them in more detail, how to go about making their own. It looks a bit tricky but is surprisingly easy once you get into it. It is also very therapeutic! 🙂

Then it was time to add some embellishments to our webs. We had lots of beautiful bits and bobs – like feathers, beads, shells…

I was very impressed with the final results!

Native Speaker – Adrienne’s Options Class

Teacher Adrienne is famed for making all her lessons fun and interesting, and her feedback comments very often include both these words, along with ‘she really cares’ and ‘she has helped me so much’. Her students love her enthusiasm and passion for teaching and we love finding out what they’ve been up to in class…

For one of Adrienne’s recent Native Speaker options classes, which teaches phrasal verbs, idioms and slang, the focus was on ‘getting directions’.

In pairs the students had to take it in turns to give each other directions. To make it more fun and challenging the person getting directions was blindfolded and an obstacle course was created!! Using equipment they found downstairs, including a trolley, exercise ball and hula hoop, the students got creative directing each other around the garden.

The hour lesson was filled with lots of laughter, making it a memorable way for the students to remember the new vocabulary and phrases they had learnt!

Morning Coffee Club! 11 December

This morning we started our day off with our weekly Lexis Coffee Club! Everyone was being super healthy today, opting for the chai tea options instead of the lattes and cappuccinos and eating a very modest amount of Tim Tams! 🙂

Ready…. Set…. JENGA!

During the first half, we chatted about everything – from what we did at the weekend, to yoga classes and travels in Australia. It’s always fun and a great way to practice your English outside of the classroom environment 🙂

Things got competitive then with some Jenga with questions. It’s just like the usual Jenga, except that each block has a different question on the side – a great way to pick up random facts about everyone and it always leads to the funniest conversations…

IMG_9445.JPG

Do you??! 

We managed to build a huge Jenga tower but the game met a very different demise – see if you can spot the culprit…! 🙂

Coffee club is every Tuesday at 11.30am and 2pm outside the student lounge. Come find us!
