Happy Friday! I hope you are thriving this week. My most recent interview is on We Teach Languages with Inga Paterson-Zúñiga! In it, we discuss how we have evolved our teaching, comprehensible novels and assessments. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed talking with Inga.
In addition, Martina and I recently published a free edition of El Mundo en Tus Manos that talks about the earthquakes in Puerto Rico. If you haven’t had a chance to discuss this in your class, you can use these. You can also add this edition to a Free Voluntary Reading Library as well.
Next week, I will be sharing my Super Bowl lesson plans for the upcoming weeks including another free reading assignment. For now, check out some of these posts from this week:
- I love Julie’s ideas for annotating the text in elementary classes! (And could be used in level 1 as well!)
- Cécile wrote a series of posts on assessments that are valuable to read.
- Allison shared some of her favorite technology tools.
- Keith has a great post on a listening activity with pictures.
Here are some of my previous posts:
- One way I have assessed interpretive reading while I teach novels
- Some lesson plans around Piratas del Caribe
- Other ways that I have evolved around my interpretive reading assessments
