True Colors

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday we covered two topics, first, verbs and idioms with movement and then we talked about color.  Movement and the speed of movement – A baby crawls across the room. A boy runs on the playground. Crawls is slow and runs is fastWe discussed different verbs of movement used with animals – The eagle soared over the mountains. The snake slithered down the hill. Lastly, we looked at a few idioms using movement , here is the review we did in class Movement Review

Colors are a natural part of our lives and all around us. We made a list of all the colors we could think of, and then looked at a few color collocations, like a blue sky, a red pepperorange juice, and green grass. Here is the review we did together on colors and a few idioms with color Colors .

 Colors may also describe our moods, emotions, and feelings like in this chart:

We then talked about colors and our cultures, by describing what the many colors of our home country flags represent. Nice job on all who shared with us! We talked about our favorite colors and how they make us feel.  Then we watched this video on colors which demonstrates color in the world around us 

Lastly we watched this video of John Legend singing his song “True Colors”. After watching we discussed what “to show your true colors” means, you show your true colors if you show what you are really like and reveal your true character. Enjoy the John Legend video
