Super Bowl Reading and Lesson Plans for 2020

Each year, I like to write comprehensible articles about the Super Bowl. Some previous versions are not as relevant, but last year, I wrote about the food that people eat during the Super Bowl and the Pats Army in Mexico. These articles are still timely. In the same post, I also detailed input bracketing aboutContinue reading “Super Bowl Reading and Lesson Plans for 2020”

Activities to start off the New Year!

I have always loved reading my prediction for the upcoming year- as do my students! I have been making these horoscopes and predictions for many years, and my students would leave them on their desk. More students came in and read them! It was pretty much a dream come true! I am continuing with theContinue reading “Activities to start off the New Year!”

Stations in the World Language Classroom

I realized the other day that I had never blogged about how I do stations!  I try to have students do stations at least once per unit.  I also have found that they work well on days that my students aren’t as motivated to really keep them moving throughout class.  One year, I planned manyContinue reading “Stations in the World Language Classroom”

Fast Food Unit: Intermediate Spanish

Romeo and Julieta: A story of frog love and conservation for novice high and up

Sometimes, I love a story from El Mundo en Tus Manos so much that I want to create even more materials for it.  And occasionally, I have a three day weekend, so I can do that!  Romeo used to be the world’s loneliest frog in a museum in Bolivia looking for a mate… until recently! Continue reading “Romeo and Julieta: A story of frog love and conservation for novice high and up”

Interpretive Reading Assessments for Novels

As I continue to balance how I assess novels and how I implement IPAs, I have played around with how I assess how students interpret the vocabulary that students are acquiring as well as the novel itself.  For my upper levels, I typically could find an article that included a lot of the culture thatContinue reading “Interpretive Reading Assessments for Novels”

46 pages to add to your FVR library for free!

Ok- I will admit, I totally went with a click bait title there!  But it is true! As I have admitted to before, organization is not strong suit.  I have started to become better about it, but it still falls to the bottom of my list.  Organized me would print off copies of my newsContinue reading “46 pages to add to your FVR library for free!”
