Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July! I love a good fireworks show. Here are some of my favorite “fireworks” from around the web! (Pardon the horrible pun!!)
1. El Mundo de Birch wrote a great blog post about using prompts in writing and speaking activities. She has some GREAT ones on her Pinterest board. I always struggle to find great pictures to use for writing and speaking prompts. I have been stealing from her Pinterest board all week to get ready for my Spanish II class next year!
2. This is such a cute idea and would be perfect on a Friday when frankly we are all ready for the weekend! I would pick two Hispanic singers and allow students to pick a team that they want to support. Whoever wins gets to listen to a song from that singer at the end of class! It is an easy reward. You could also have students suggest who they want to have on the board.
3. I love this unit about the comedy horror genre! The readings are wonderful, too.
4. Sra. Spanglish has an excellent blog! She recently reflected what she wants to keep and change for next year. One thing she used successfully is PACEE notes. I hope to develop some for my Spanish II and eventually revamp my Spanish I to include more notes like this.
