Happy Friday! Whew! It was a busy week. Next week will be our last week in the trimester, so I plan on grading during our trip. My hope is that I won’t have to grade over Thanksgiving break! I rarely bring home grading, but if it helps my sanity during the week, I will do it. Even though I won’t be there, I look forward to following along from ACTFL at home next week. Also, the podcast that I work with- We Teach Languages– will have a BIG announcement next week! I can’t wait! In the meantime, here were some of my favorite posts over the week:
- I love this simple reading activity that can be used with any reading!
- Annabelle’s post on how to tie in culture with PictureTalk helps any teacher who may or may not have had a chance to use PictureTalk.
- Although this post is about French bread and pastries, I always enjoy seeing how other teachers create proficiency units. This helps me as I am developing my own.
- I am ALL about balancing resources created for students, resources created for native speakers and even editing those resources! Check out Sara-Elizabeth’s post about how she decides what fits.
