SPANISH WORD OF THE WEEK GRAPHIC ORGANIZER TEMPLATE
Feb
18
2018

This resource is 7 pages long and includes a Spanish vocabulary template for students to fill out with the new word of the week. It is ideal to help students increase their vocabulary in Spanish in a visual way. Note that this resource works well for pre-intermediate up to upper-intermediate or advanced students of Spanish.

How can you use this template?
Students will need to fill out information on the new word of the week such as: definition, synonyms, antonyms, root, prefixes, suffixes, part of speech, etc. 
I ask my students to keep a little dictionary throughout the course and each week I have them complete this template with a new word they have learned. In addition, you can ask your students to create a sentence so that they are forced to use the new word or even find examples of the word in context and bring them to class. 

I have included the same template in different colours, since my students use colours for differientating parts of speech.

This resource includes 10 different school timetable templates to use with your students in class. Timetibles are ideal not only to practice days of the week, times and school subjects, but much more. That is why these timetables are theme/vocabulary based, so that students can also practice vocabulary related to sports, school objects, horoscopes, extracurricular activities, preferences, coloquial expressions, etc. in a fun and motivating way. Students can customize their own timetables by adding their personal information. 

I have even used the timetables as a first day introduction activity. Since there are 10 templates available, you can let your students choose the one they like best and then make them introduce themselves to the class with it. It also works very well to do a question-answer activity in pairs.

Sunday School Lesson | Perseverance
Feb

2018

The Olympics (TM) are a great time to teach our kids about perseverance. These athletes work hard to accomplish their goals. 

We need to work hard to accomplish what God has planned for us and to persevere in spreading the Gospel and maturing our faith.

The kids will define perseverance and learn about Derek Redmond, an Olympian in the 1992 Summer Olympics who persevered to finish the race despite an injury.

This Sunday School lesson includes discussion questions, Bible verses, lesson, and 2 activities. The Bible Memory Verse activity is for Hebrews 12:1.

Everything you need to teach a lesson on perseverance is right here.


 

Grade 3 Telling Time to the Minute 4 Corners Game
Feb

2018

My students love 4 Corners games in the classroom! Get your students up and moving around with this game designed to add spiral review, practice, or remediation to your Math resources! 

This can be a great way to review telling time to the minute for upcoming state testing. 

Common Core Grade 3 Measurement and Data Standards are referenced, along with Pennsylvania Core Measurement and Data Grade 3 Eligible Content correlation.

Display the first question slide from my PowerPoint file on your Smartboard. Wait until all students have a solution, given about 2 minutes for each problem, and ask them to stand by the letter of the multiple choice answer selected.

We play 4 Corners games frequently. So, I hung wooden A, B, C, D alphabet letters painted to compliment my classroom walls. Simply writing each of those 4 alphabet letters on paper and hanging in designated spots of your classroom works just as well.

Students can solve problems using the Recording Sheet I've included in the product file, scrap paper, individual whiteboards, or printed copies of the PowerPoint slides. 

Using that 2 minute wait time per problem, gave a bit more accountability as well; students had to work through the problems rather than going and standing by an alphabet letter with a friend or early finisher.

Each of the 12 question slides is followed by an answer slide.

SUPER SPANISH MASTERCHEF GAME BUNDLE (food vocabulary)
Feb
18
2018

This resource is 89 pages long and includes 7 Masterchef-themed based competition games for Spanish students. Most of the games can be used with any level (elementary, intermediate and advanced students of Spanish aged 12+) and all of them include clear instructions on how to play as well as teacher answer key. 

All the games are designed to be played by two teams (red team and blue team) but they can easily be adapted to be used with more than two teams (for instance, groups of 3 to 5 students) or even as pairwork. Thanks to these games, students will become contestants of the popular competition game Masterchef and practice food vocabulary in a motivating and creative way.

I have used the games included in this pack separately in different lessons and levels, but also all together as a final competition game the last week of the course or as a final revision game after dealing with a vocabulary unit on food.

The competition games included are:
- Guess the dish (12 ready to cut out cards)

- Menu competition (16 ready to cut out cards to create a menu)
- Find the odd one out (6 worksheets)
