Musica!

We listen to Spanish music in class whenever we can- it's a great way for the students to get used to different Spanish accents and practice their listening skills.
Did you know that ALL Disney movies are translated into Spanish? You can usually find the Spanish version on a DVD.

Today, we listened to "Intentalo Todo" by Shakira from Zootopia. Some brave students from 7A volunteered to come up and sing:

Dame Cinco-High 5

Students from 8A prepared for their Review Oral by playing Dame Cinco- asking each other questions in Spanish and trading questions after a high 5. It's a great Communicative Activity that gets them out of their seats.

Using Buckets and Top Down Webs for Review

I attended a workshop in August on using Keys to Literacy in my classroom, and I decided to put some of the techniques to work in my 8th grade classes.

First, each student received 3 review vocabulary words to sort into topic "buckets:"


Then, we created this Top Down Web as a class using the words in each bucket:


Both activities went really well! Sorting and making the web got the kids out of their seats and helped them focus on each vocabulary topic. It also helped to identify some review words that students were having the most trouble remembering. I am looking forward to using this technique again in the future.

Here is a link to watch a local news show direct from Buenos Aires, Argentina!

They created the LARGEST empanada in the world and sold sections of it to the public for a fundraiser- pretty cool!

Verb Boxes

8A Spanish students are learning the Preterite (Past Tense) form of AR Verbs. They made verb boxes (1 box with pronouns and another with infinitive verbs) and then played a game in groups making up original sentences in Spanish.

Quizlet Live for the Win!

8B Spanish students used Quizlet Live last week to test themselves on their Chapter 9 Vocabulary. They LOVED it- and most said that they preferred Quizlet Live to Kahoot!
The best parts of the game are that students work together in random groups and each game is pretty quick so it doesn't take up an entire class period.
