Today, I wanted to share not one but two authentic resources that I used in my classes. I am noticing that as my goals become more performance based, my lesson plans do as well.
My first resource is for different school vocabulary including a schedule, year calendar and back to school items. I used this for my beginning students, so I wrote all of the questions in English and had the students respond in English. I provided the link above the corresponding questions. I actually didn’t do this electronically today because my students are returning from snow days with a lot of online work! This could easily be turned into a practice if your school is not one-to one.
My second resource is for my Spanish II classes, and it talks about restaurants and foods. I also put in a few questions about the supermarket flyer. I have a whole separate activity if you are just working with food vocabulary. The students really do enjoy looking at the different foods from different countries. Here I used a mixture of Spanish and English questions. I believe that many times students do not know what it means in English, but they can find the information and copy it onto their worksheet. Have fun!
