I downloaded an awesome video about Valencia, Spain. It's great for elementary/middle school students. There are so many great activities that you can do with this video. I thought I'd share for all of my teacher friends. Enjoy!!
If you're like me and love to listen to music, here are some great songs that I think you will enjoy. A wonderful Chilean group, Kevin Karla y La Banda, have taken popular songs heard on the radio and sing them in Spanish. What a great tool to practice the language by singing and dancing!
"We Are Never Getting Back Together" Spanish cover with lyrics
"Wide Awake" cover in Spanish with lyrics
"We Found Love" cover in Spanish with lyrics
"Call Me Maybe" cover in Spanish with lyrics
I'm always amazed when children take charge of their learning. Instead of Señora Hoyos calling the numbers, a first grade student was randomly selected to be the caller for the game. Being the caller not only helped students practice their number skills, but it also boosted their confidence and self-esteem.
It's always interesting to watch when children take charge of their learning. Today we played number BINGO in first grade, and instead of Señora Hoyos calling the numbers, a student was selected to be the caller. Students were so excited to be the "profesor/professora" and practice their numbers!
Today we celebrated the birthday of the ant in third grade. Students were so excited to join together with Sra. Fonseca's class to celebrate such a fun occasion. Third Graders honored La Hormiga by making paper ants and snacked on treats. Enjoy photos from our fiesta and a cute little video in honor of La Hormiga.
Today, 3rd graders filled out their, "Todo Sobre Mi" (All About Me) to introduce themselves to the class. Students filled out the questionnaire and presented their personal favorites to their peers.
Welcome to my first post! I am so excited to pair two of my passions-technology and love of language. Even though I enjoyed my summer vacation, I am thrilled to start my first year as a Lovett Lower School Spanish teacher. This year, I will teach all of kindergarten, first grade, and one section of third grade with Señora Fonseca. If you have any questions, concerns, or simply want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 262-3032, ext. 1166.
A life-long learner who is combining two of my favorite passions: technology and love of languages...
