Happy Friday! We don’t go back until the end of August for teachers, but I definitely had that summer is ending sooner than I thought moment. I made a bucket list for my son, and we need to keep going strong! This week, we went to a garden with a butterfly house and train to ride and the Natural History Museum. I also dragged him to get tapas when we were in the city. Good thing that he loved it!
This Saturday, I will be at Teaism in Dupont for a coffeeedu with some of my fave EdCampMetroDC people. (We will miss you Emily!) Join us! Then, next week is NTPRS! I haven’t been since Austin, and I am excited to learn even more. Look for more on the blog and follow me on Twitter if you do not. Here are some great ideas that I found this week:
- I have been thinking about what Spanish my students would need to talk to others in a Spanish-speaking country. Laura writes a lot of information here!
- Speaking of which, check out some slang from Spain. Kids would love to know this! (Make sure they are appropriate… or ones that you would want them to repeat. I don’t think we need to encourage “sexylady” a lot!)
- Even more ideas about IPAs for a daily routine!
- I am going to teach Spanish 3 next year, and I am thinking about using El Internado. Do you? Do you have advice for me? I LOVE these graphic novels by Mike Peto and Dustin Williamson. (I am hoping to learn more next week!)
