There are not that many websites to support the Gaeilge curriculum so it is nice to find out about one which I hadn’t heard of before. Bosca Beo is aimed at 3rd and 4th classes in the primary school and is set out in eight sections according to the themes of the Gaeilge curriculum (Sa Bhaile & Teilifís are grouped together as are Aimsir and Éadaí).
The website contains a range of slideshows with audio and some short webfilms which were made to fit with these curriculum themes. Some of the videos have follow-on teacher resources connected with the video. They contain exercises on “labhairt”, “labhairt & scríbhneoireacht”, “labhairt & léitheoireacht”. Some of these activities would be great as a class activity on the IWB.
The site has been put together by a practising primary school teacher. You can visit the site at www.boscabeo.com
