Juan Alberto L Uribe's insight:

I would like to thank Jim George from Luna International in Matsumoto, Japan and Ansemf Bae from FIN English in Daegu, South Korea for having gracefully created videos of me during my sessions and shows.  These sounds and images have allowed me to know myself better and are valuable gifts that I will keep forever.

Children Learning English Affectively: Puppeteering interviews with Queenie Tan!

Children Learning English Affectively: Puppeteering interviews with Queenie Tan! | Affective language learning with children | Scoop.it
Juan Alberto L Uribe's insight:

Buddy and I were not interviewed once, but twice in Queenie's show! But how did that happen?

Well, Queenie first interviewed us on how teachers can teach using puppets and then many of the parents that follow her parenting channel liked our interview so much, that they asked us to come to Queenie's parenting channel to talk about how parents can have quality time with their children living imagination and creativity with puppets.

Children Learning English Affectively: 50 affective ways to use flashcards with young learners!

Children Learning English Affectively: 50 affective ways to use flashcards with young learners! | Affective language learning with children | Scoop.it
Juan Alberto L Uribe's insight:

Flashcards, Flashcards. How can we live without them? What can we say about them?

I bet every single language teacher around the world has at least a set of flashcards. Some like me, certainly have a collection. I would say that teachers love flashcards because they are visual, clear, objective, and holdable. They can also be used in many different and creative ways.

I have compiled here 50 affective and effective ways in which flashcards can be used to foster engaging and significant language learning in your classes. Enjoy!

Children Learning English Affectively: Affective Postures and Practices for Classroom Management with Young Learners

Children Learning English Affectively: Affective Postures and Practices for Classroom Management with Young Learners | Affective language learning with children | Scoop.it

How can we channel the lovely energy young learners bring to class? How can language be lived in a caring and empowering way? How can we promote affect but still have control of what happens in class?

Affective postures and practices make a big difference when it comes to fostering empowering and democratic language learning environments with young language learners.

Children Learning English Affectively: Learning English Affectively with Taboo Cards

Children Learning English Affectively: Learning English Affectively with Taboo Cards | Affective language learning with children | Scoop.it
Today I explore the very famous taboo cards that probably many of you have already seen around, played with your friends, or maybe even have already used in class. Taboo is a card game in which players have to describe a thing without using the most common words associated with it. These words are considered them taboo and shouldn't be said.  Taboo was originally designed for native English-speaking adults and one can notice that it requires a good command of language in order to play it properly. I have in this post adapted, created, and organized a list of 30 different ways in which taboo cards can be used. Enjoy it!
