Whew! That was a week. It was definitely difficult. I am sure that my week mirrored your week. I was dealing with making plans for my own students and then BAM! My son’s school decided to cancel for Friday. At 11:30 PM. After telling us earlier in the evening that they wouldn’t cancel on Friday. I am lucky that my own school had their after care open, and my head of school is amazing and welcomed my son- and personally checked on him as well. But still. That stress is real. I want to share as much as I can while still making sure that I am serving my own students and helping as many teachers as I can.
My older post is good for general guidelines, but I wanted to share a separate page that was just a dumping place for resources. I will share it now, and update it when I have a chance (and find more resources- HA!)
First, here are some other resources that I have found from various people:
- Edited to add: Martina and I have been working on making three free coronavirus articles in El Mundo en Tus Manos. This also has activities to do online like Quizziz and EdPuzzle.
- @profehyman shared this choice board online that is a compilation of a few different ones. This is appropriate for middle school and has a mixture of online and offline activities.
- Leslie Grahn shared this choice board that is not language specific! It also doesn’t require any paid subscriptions or teacher prep.
- Noemi also shared this generic reading log last week on my blog post. I moved it here to the collection.
- Señor Wooly is also working on some resources and offering a free PRO subscription as well.
- Julie also shared some great activities for younger students! I know my colleague who teaches second grade is using some of her ideas.
- Emily shared some great ideas for continuing to work on the interpretive mode.
For my early childhood (prek/kindergarten and first grade) students, I included these books that I had already made. I plan on making a video for them to watch to make sure that they can do them together.
- I made this book to summarize the year about feelings and animals for students to illustrate.
- This book is about colors with cognates.
- This book is about numbers.
- This book is a simpler version about animals and colors.
For my third and fourth grade students, I gave them an edition of Qué Tal magazine and a copy of the new FVR book from the Señor Wooly website for Diego. Then, I made this choice board for them.
I shared this on the last post- but in case you missed it, I organized my EdPuzzle videos by level and theme for both middle and high school.
If you have access to PearDeck to assign students:
- Clothes practice
- Introduction to Costa Rica (for level 1 or possibly 2)
- Birthday celebrations (for level 1 and level 2)
- Sports GIFs (I just turned this into a PearDeck activity)
- An older Cuba presentation that I switched into a PearDeck activity for level 4+
For a couple of interpretive reading activities, I used Google Drawings. It can be leveled as well.
