‘Seanfhocal na Seachtaine’ & ‘Quote of the Week’

Seanfhocal na SeachtaineQuote of the Week - English

Seo rud bheag a dhéanaim gach uile seachtain ar scoil agus feicim go gcuireann sé go mór le saol an seomra ranga i go leor bealaí éagsúla. Ag tús na seactaine bíonn seanfhocal nua, as Gaeilge, agus quote nua, as Béarla, á chrochadh agam. Labhraíonn muid faoin dá rud maidin Dé Luain, míníonn muid céard atá i gceist leo, bíonn plé againn ar an duine a dúirt, nó ar an stair atá taobh thiar de. Cuidíonn na seanfhocail go mór le Gaeilge na bpáistí, sa chaint, sa scríbhneoireacht, ó thaobh chultúr an teanga de, ó thaobh staire de agus baineann siad sult as úsáid a bhaint astu i rith na seachtaine. (Tugaim pointí ClassDojo dóibh más féidir iad a úsáid!!) I gcás na cinn as Béarla, bíonn siad spreagúil go nádúrtha agus faigheann na páistí muinín astu – i ngan fhios daoibh féin. Chomh maith le sin, is bealach deas, nádúrtha é na daoine a dúirt, a chur in iúl dóibh – údair, polaiteoirí cáilúila, ceannairí domhanda, filí, aisteoirí, is ar uile. Nós simplí agus éasca atá cabhrach gan dabht agus a chuireann leis an seomra ranga ag an am céanna. Tá sampla nó dhó thíos agus is féidir clicéail ar na híomhánna thuas le dul ag mo shiopa TpT chun iad a cheannach, má tá suim agat.

This is a little thing that I do every week at school and I see that it adds largely to classroom life in lots of ways. At the beginning of the week I hang a new seanfhocal (Irish proverb) and a new quote, in English. We speak about the two things every Monday morning, we explain what they mean, we discuss the person who said the quote and the history behind them. The proverbs really help the children with their Irish, both spoken and written, in terms of the culture of the language and from a historical point of view. The children enjoy using them whenever they can throughout the week. (I give them ClassDojo points if they can include them during the week!!). The Quote of the Week is always motivational by nature and the children gain encouragement and confidence from them – without even realising it. As well as that, it’s a lovely, natural way to introduce them to the various people who spoke the words – authors, famous politicians, world leaders, poets, actors, and more. Overall, this a simple and effective weekly routine and the nice colourful posters add to the classroom at the same time. There’s a couple of examples below and you can click on the images at the top to go to my TpT store where you can purchase them, if you’re interested.
