This summer I worked with several of the Dreaming Spanish videos to prepare them for use in my classes. Inspiration hit me: having a quick reference for calendars, colors, weather, seasons, and maps ready to go and at my fingertips (like Pablo in the videos) would be super helpful for helping keep up the flow of our conversations/input in class. So I made some and laminated them with my trusty $4 laminator from Aldi. YAY!
The cards have:
- weather & seasons
- calendar for the year with dates, and weeks starting with Monday
- North America map
- world map
And I’m thinking that I might also add cards with a picture of my dog, another of my family, and even one with common foods and activities.
While I’ve used pictures in this manner for years, it’s always been in a slideshow. However, I think having them ready to go will help keep the flow going and allow us to use even more TL throughout our day.
Thanks for reading!
