Fifth YALS spring online meetup for first and second graders
Reported by Milica Gojkovic and Marija Vojvodic
The 5th YALS workshop was meant for the youngest and the cutest students. It was held in the early afternoon on 4th June, and Centar Britannica had the pleasure of being the ’virtual’ host of about 25 young learners from Leskovac, Valjevo and Nis.
Teachers Milica Gojkovic and Marija Vojvodic, with the wholehearted technical and logistical support of Jovana Kostic, guided the students through dance, story and various language and logical activities.
In a somewhat noisy, but most certainly active work environment, the primary students had an opportunity to show off their knowledge of action verbs and animals, their spelling (even reading) and acting skills, but also to learn at least a few new words watching a funny story about a sloth and a rabbit.
Thanks everyone for being so active, cheerful and easy to work with!
