Hispanic Heritage Month Activity

So, I created a Google Slideshow to showcase some great things about Hispanic culture. Then, I realized how much time it was going to take me to get links to all the things. LOL. So…

I made it a project! I made a copy for each class I have and assigned each student (I let some people work in pairs) a country. Their assignment was to find resources (not Wikipedia) that would teach us something about that particular thing. Then, they made them clickable and they were ready to present.

Now, as an added layer, I went a step further and had them create at least two questions from each resource they had found in a Google Form. They also had to provide a Google Doc answer key. Now, I have an amazing bank of slideshows with quizzes to accompany them. My students are still working on them, but I will definitely come back and give you guys some examples of the finished products!

Happy teaching!

Wooly Week with Heritage Learners

So, this was Wooly Week in my Spanish 2 classes.  I decided my Heritage 1 class deserved to get in on the fun! (My Natives 2 / 3 class was presenting projects.) They really enjoyed watching the videos and participating in the activities.  I did level up some of the options to meet them at a level more appropriate for them. We work a lot on reading and writing, which can be kind of tedious, so it is important to remember to let them be kids and have fun too! 

Before we started WW, they chose their favorite Wooly character and created a whole biography and illustrated them!  I am posting some pics below.  

Then, we read Miss Nelson is Missing, an old, but good, book in Spanish. They compared and contrasted Vibra Viral with this.  It was a good comparative exercise.

Finally, I had them come up with a biography for the teacher in Vibra Viral to explain her back story some.  I was able to review some grammar struggles we have with using the preterite and imperfect during this exercise. They had a LOT of fun with this one!  I laughed out loud and was a little confused by the choices of others. 

All in all, it was a great Wooly Week for everyone!
