Я работаю в обычной школе, но в классах с углублённым
изучением английского языка. Главным в своей работе считаю развитие и поддержание
интереса к своему предмету. Я стараюсь использовать различные приёмы, формы, методы,
с помощью которых изучение английского языка становится интересным и увлекательным.
Проведение праздников, конкурсов, вызывают огромный интерес у школьников.
В данной статье я хочу рассказать об одном из таких праздников.
праздника-конкурса являются как отдельные учащиеся, так и команды от классов. Перед праздником дети и родители готовили сувениры, подарки, открытки,
читали о празднике в газетах, журналах, книгах; знакомились с традициями проведения
этого праздника в Англии и США; учили стихи, песни, украшали кабинет. Ученики
3 “Б” класса подготовили сценку о Санта Клаусе и эльфах. На праздник пригласили
родителей, гостей из Америки и Канады, которые также организовали игры-конкурсы.
Участники праздника получали фанты за каждый конкурс, а победители получили сладкие
медали и рождественские сувениры. У нас остался видеофильм об этом весёлом Рождестве.
Вести праздник помогали ученики 11 класса.
Teacher: Dear children and guests! On the 25th of
December people celebrate Christmas – a beautiful holiday, which is loved by children
and adults; when everything is decorated with lights and toys; when we see Christmas
trees everywhere; when people buy presents and cook special food, send cards and
have parties! And we’ll celebrate this holiday now!
I want to introduce
our guests: meet Andrew – he is from USA – and Heather – she is from Canada. Your
parents have also come to us. Elena Ivanovna – a teacher of English, will help
me, and the girls from the 11th form will help me too.
Today we’ll have
an English contest – all the tasks will be connected with Christmas. We’ll play
games, sing songs, recite poems – so I hope that we’ll enjoy this holiday, and
have a good time.
So I wish you good luck! Everyone will get a forfeit
for the best result in each competition, and at the end we’ll see who is the 1st,
2nd, and 3rd places, which group is better, and of course you’ll get presents.
We’ve learnt a song about Christmas. Let’s sing it!
Children sing a song “Merry Christmas, everyone!” by Shaken Steavens from
the album “Enjoy listening and learning”.
Teacher: Christmas begins
with cards. Some of you also have prepared Christmas cards. All of you, who drew
them, got forfeits. We decided to give additional forfeits for the best cards.
The children prepared Christmas cards beforehand, they were displayed in
the classroom on the walls and everybody saw them.

“Pin the Tail on the Donkey.” Let’s play a little.
Here is a Donkey, but it has no tail.
Everybody has a chance to pin the
tail on the Donkey. It’s not so easy, because you cannot see – you have a scarf
over your eyes. The person who puts the tail to the right place is the winner.
“The Field of Wonders.” I’ll give you one verb – I’ll write
it on the blackboard. You must make up sentences with this verb in the right tense
form – insert it in the empty squares.
Here are the squares on the blackboard
and each of you will get a piece of paper with such a field. Who wants to play
this game – take a “field” (a piece of paper), please!
the Parcel”: here is something wrapped in a lot of the papers. You’ll stand in
a circle and pass the parcel to the person next to you. There is music playing.
When the music stops, you take off one of the papers. Then music starts again.
The person who takes the last piece off wins the prize.
Children play the
game “Pass the Parcel”.
Now I’ll give you one word. You
must in a minute’s time write as many words as possible with the letters of this
word. Take pieces of paper! Take pens, pencils. Be ready. Look at this word –
