Time to put on our big boy pants!

Here’s a resource that I use to help novice students create with Spanish once we have worked our way through the first few weeks of class: the Big Boy sheet.

Students are NEVER tested on the sheet itself, rather, it serves as a curated vocab reference list and confidence builder that helps them say what they want to say (avoiding the translator), and encourages them to assemble more complex sentences. We use it all year, and it’s one of the things that my former students ask for most from college. Enjoy!

    This is awesome! I am going to use it with my Spanish 4s and AP class. Both are absolutely petrified to talk. They say they can’t. Now they need to put on their big boy pants and do it!
