please tell me what is right?

The _______________________ children are trying to open the box. (excite)

exciting or excited?

EXCITED because here a passive adjective is needed.
The children are excited because the box is close and they are impatient to open it.
If you say EXCITING the meaning is different : The children are EXCITING the dog to make it bark OR This book is very EXCITING and I am greatly interestED in the story, I can ´t leave it until I will have read the last word !
With EXCITED you are Under the power of excitement and with EXCITING you are the source of excitement.
Is my explanation clear enough ?

Activities with songs   
Hi dear colleagues!
I have to write a short essay for a course regarding activities to do with songs in the primary school. 
Can you tell me what activities do you do with your young pupils, please? Or have you got some useful links about it? 
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions. :)

Hi Stefania

how I usually teach songs is that I either teach the vocabulary in the song up front or I show them video with a cartoon that shows the action of what ´s happening in the song. If I use flashcards, I play some games with them such as hide and seek or any other vocabulary game really. Then I have the children come up with their own gestures that we then use in the song. That ´s also a good way to revise vocab in the next lesson (you do the gestures they came up with and they guess which word it was). Then i sing the song for the kids and make sure they understand everything, then they sing with me. Then I usually follow things with a craft activity  or a worksheet where they fill out missing words, but also are allowed to color (for example a text with blanks and b&w pictures behind the blanks).

But there are so many ways to go about this. You can use physical activities as well (like TPR), depending on what song you are teaching. Reenacting the song if it ´s a short story ... 
I ´m sure you will get many more ideas from the other teachers as well :)

Good luck on your essay, Stefania :)

Can you help me , please ?    
Hi, there !
I would like you to help me with this passive which , to tell you the truth is puzzling me  . The sentence is "  My sister loves people telling her stories " . Though Ithink  the right answer is "  My sister loves being told stories"  , I ´m not sure if "  My sister likes her stories being told " would be another right option . 
Thanks in advance for your comments !

Dearest teachers,

Here is the new word for you to define:


Have in mind, the definition must be a fake, made-up one :)
Please, come up with the craziest definition you can think of.

Good luck to you all!

Polysemy quiz   
I occasionally use multiple meaning exercises for more advanced students, not only to encourage and develop dictionary skills but also to show how English isn´t static and that our language thrives on ambiguity.

So, what single word do all these concepts have in common? 

1. consulting; 2. ensuring; 3. experiencing; 4. finding out; 5. dating; 6. understanding; 7. visiting; 8. judging; 9.sending away; 10. escorting?
The list is not exhaustive – the more obvious concepts which might give the game away are missing.  And if you´re tempted just to google the answer (I got this from one of my favourite language sites), keep it to yourself.

Communicating?... As long as it ´s exploring in the sense of finding out about a person.
