Asociația Profesorilor de Limba Engleză din Oltenia este o
organizație regională, non-guvernamentală, apolitică şi non-profit,
înființată în Oltenia în vederea strângerii legăturii dintre toți profesorii de
limba engleză pentru desfășurarea și promovarea activităților de natură
să asigure dezvoltarea individuală și socială. Asociația își propune să
deruleze activități cu caracter științific, cultural și umanitar. Asociația a
fost înființată în octombrie 2018 și are sediul central în Craiova.
Asociația se vrea partenerul tuturor profesorilor de limba
engleză, în vederea realizării unor parteneriate educaționale, publicații
online și a unor concursuri școlare. De asemenea, ne propunem organizarea unor
conferințe, mese rotunde și suntem deschiși tuturor propunerilor venite din partea
dumneavoastră.
În cadrul APLEO, Consiliul director a luat decizia înființării
Departamentului pentru limba germană. Toți colegii care
predau limba germană se pot implica în activitățile desfășurate în cadrul
APLEO în cadrul acestui departament.

APLEO propune tuturor profesorilor de limba engleză și de limba germană o


Bibliotecă virtuală unde profesorii și elevii pot găsi materiale
GRATUITE menite să sprijine activitatea de predare-învățare-evaluare. De
asemenea, ne propunem realizarea unor materiale pentru profesorii de limba
engleză și limba germană necesare pentru proiectarea didactică și realizarea
unor lecții cât mai atractive.

APLEO vine în sprijinul elevilor și profesorilor care fac performanță. De


aceea, încă din primul an de la înființare, APLEO a inițiat Ceremonia de
premiere a elevilor care s-au calificat la Olimpiada Națională de Limba
Engleză. Pentru că suntem alături de profesori și elevi și pentru a susține și
încuraja performanța, APLEO va oferi aceste premii anual.

APLEO vine în sprijinul colegilor, profesori de limba engleză și limba


germană, care doresc să se perfecționeze și organizează Conferințe atât cu
participare locală, națională, dar și internațională.
Conferința Națională Limbile Moderne de la Tradiție la Inovație a
trezit interesul profesorilor de limba engleză, nu numai din regiunea Olteniei, dar și celor
din întreaga țară. Invitata specială, Sarah Ellis, a reușit să depășească așteptările, chiar și a
celor mai sceptici dintre cei peste 100 de participanți.
Conferința interjudețeană Tehnici de Predare în Clasa Postmodernă a adus
împreună participanți din județele Olteniei. Ediția I a lărgit orizontul participanților și a
oferit posibilitatea speaker-ilor de a împărtăși din experiența lor. Ambele proiecte s-au
bucurat de un real succes și sperăm să devină o tradiție.
In vederea încurajării elevilor talentați și pasionați de limba engleză, încă
de la clasele primare, APLEO a inițiat două concursuri pentru toate
vârstele. In parteneriat cu am putut oferi premii
substanțiale câștigătorilor.

Concursul de Ortografie în limba engleză Spelling Rules care se adresează
elevilor claselor II – V, s-a desfășurat la Colegiul Național „Elena Cuza” și, încă de la prima
ediție, s-a dovedit un proiect de succes. Ocupanții locurilor I de la fiecare nivel au primit ca
premiu un examen Cambridge.
Concursul English for teens care se adresează atât elevilor de gimnaziu, cât și
elevilor de liceu, respectiv clasele III – XII, a înregistrat de la prima ediție un număr ridicat
de participanți.
Ambele proiecte vor continua și anul acesta cu sprijinul partenerilor noștri de la
Colegiul Național „Elena Cuza” din Craiova.

APLEO propune tuturor profesorilor de limba engleză și limba germană,


care doresc să-și îmbogățească activitatea profesională prin publicarea unor
articole de specialitate, revista internațională Pygmalion. Această
publicație va apărea în format electronic, respectiv online, iar membrii
APLEO vor publica articole și studii fără costuri. Articolele trebuie să se
încadreze într-o tematică bine stabilită, să aibă o structură specifică, să
respecte anumite cerințe și anumite standarde. Toate aceste detalii și alte
informații vor fi disponibile pe site-urile noastre.

La sfârșitul anului 2020 APLEO va relansa, după o pauză de peste


10 ani, publicația The Sentinel. Aceasta se adresează tuturor elevilor care
doresc să publice în limba engleză. Publicația va apărea anual în format
electronic, respectiv online. Tematica articolelor rămâne la libera alegere a
elevului și a profesorului coordonator. Contribuțiile pot fi trimise pe adresa

de mail sentinel@apleo.ro

APLEO a lansat în luna decembrie 2019, Concertul de Crăciun în


colaborare cu Teatrul Național “Marin Sorescu” din Craiova, și cu Partenerii
Colegiul Național “Frații Buzești”, Colegiul Național “Carol I”, Colegiul
Național “Elena Cuza”, Colegiul Național Militar “Tudor Vladimirescu” și Liceul
de Arte “Marin Sorescu”. Elevii au transpus în scenă lumea de basm a Crăciunului, prin
colindele pe care le-au interpretat. Proiectul va continua și în anii următori.
APLEO dorește să vină în sprijinul profesorilor care doresc să se perfecționeze
cu o ofertă variantă de cursuri de formare acreditate!

Introducere

În contextul educațional actual, APLEO și-a propus să creeze un auxiliar


didactic pentru a facilita predarea on-line a limbii engleze. Lucrarea ”APLEO
Companion to Teaching English Online: Volume I Primary” este
realizată de un colectiv de autori, membri APLEO cu o vasta experiență la
catedră.
Culegerea a fost concepută ca o colecție de fișe de lucru care pot fi
utilizate pe diferite platforme educaționale. Structura este pe trei niveluri de
dificultate, oferind profesorului posibilitatea de a adapta materialele în
funcție de nivelul și particularitățile clasei. Fiecare nivel este împărțit în 5
secțiuni – VOCABULARY, GRAMMAR, READING, WRITING și LISTENING,
vizând competențe esențiale de înțelegere a limbii engleze.
Autorii au propus o varietate de materiale didactice interesante și
atractive, constituind un real suport atât pentru elevi, cât și pentru profesori.
Elevii vor avea oportunitatea de a-și testa cunoștințele și de a-și îmbunătăți
abilitățile de comunicare în limba engleză. Cadrele didactice vor avea acces la
o diversitate de resurse create special pentru predarea online, abordându-se o
multitudine de teme și conținuturi științifice specifice ciclului primar.
Pe lângă fișele de lucru în format PDF, lucrarea de față oferă agenților
educaționali implicați activitățile de Writing în format editabil, precum și
link-urile/înregistrările necesare rezolvării sarcinilor de lucru pentru partea
de Listening. Cadrele didactice vor avea la dispoziție un Teacher’s book, cu
rezolvarea exercițiilor, putându-l accesa pe baza unei declarații pe propria
răspundere.
Sperăm că acest auxiliar pe suport digital va fi util și eficient în
activitatea de predare-învățare-evaluare a limbii engleze și vă dorim mult
succes!

THE PLURAL OF NOUNS


Let’s count!

In order to count things we have to find out the plural of nouns.

We form the plural of nouns following some strict rules:

1. -we add the ending”-s” at the end of a singular noun.

SINGULAR PLURAL

a/0ne dog two dogs

*- we read the ending “-s”-[s] when the singular nouns end in

voiceless consonants: [k], [p], [t] ,[th].

Eg: book- books [s] cap- caps [s]

cat- cats [s] month-months[s]

**- we read the ending “-s” –[z] when the singular nouns end in

voiced consonants: [b], [d], [g], [l], [m],[n], [ng].

Eg: comb –combs [z] bed-beds[z]

song- songs [z] girl-girls [z]

room- rooms [z] pen-pens [z]

2.- we add the ending “-es” when the singular noun ends in: ’’ -o

-ch, -sh,- s,- ss, -x,- z” and we read it [-iz]

213
Companion to Teaching English Online: Volume I Primary

(sg)a/one box (pl)two boxes [iz]

Singular noun Plural nouns

eg:watch →watches

brush →brushes

bus →buses

dress →dresses

blitz →blitzes

potato →potatoes ,

but there are some exceptions:

photo →photos video→videos

radio→radios piano→pianos

3.- when the nouns ends in “-y” we follow two rules:

a) vowel+ y, “-y” is unchanged , we add only “-s”

214
Companion to Teaching English Online: Volume I Primary

eg: (sg) toy→ (pl) toys

boy→boys

b) consonant + y, -“y” changhes to –“i” and we add “- es”

eg: (sg) baby → babies

cherry→cherries.

4.-when a singular noun ends in “-f”, “f” changes to “–v” and we

add the ending –“es”, but if ends in “-fe”, “-f”is changed to “-v” but

we add only “-s”.

Eg: (sg) wolf →wolves, but (sg) knife →(pl) knives

I.Look at the pictures. Write the plural form.

Companion to Teaching English Online: Volume I Primary

COUNTABLE AND UNCOUNTABLE NOUNS

! Countable nouns are those that refer to something that can be

counted. They have both a singular and a plural form. In the

singular, they can be preceded by a or an. Most nouns come into

this category.

E.g.: a banana- two bananas

an umbrella - two umbrellas

! Uncountable nouns are those that refer to things that cannot

be counted and are used in the singular. They usually do not

have a plural form and take a singular verb.

Some uncountable nouns can be used in the plural as well,

depending on the context.

E.g. .: 1.Would you like some coffee? (Uncountable because it

refers to the drink in general).

He ordered a coffee. (Countable because it refers to a cup

of coffee).

2. She has got long dark hair. (Uncountable because it

refers to hair as a whole).

www.apleo.ro www. blog.apleo.ro contact@apleo.ro


363
Companion to Teaching English Online: Volume I Primary

Waiter, I found a hair in my soup! (Countable because it

refers to a single strand of hair).

Uncountable nouns can be made countable using certain

expressions

E.g.: a can of coke a bar of soap

a packet of sugar a bowl of cereal

Some nouns are countable in other languages but uncountable in

English. They must follow the rules for uncountable nouns so

they cannot be used in the plural.

The most common ones are: bread, furniture, luggage, news,

information, advice, homework.

E.g.: I need to finish my homework.

I.Put the following nouns in the correct sentence. Then write C

for countable nouns and U for uncountable nouns:

butter, chocolate, eggs, sugar, milk, honey, meat, carrot, eggs,
